The Strange “Hollow Earth” Case of Admiral Richard Byrd

?There comes a time when the rationality of men must fade into insignificance and one must accept the inevitability of the Truth! I am not at liberty to disclose the following documentation at this writing?perhaps it shall never see the light of public scrutiny, but I must do duty and record here for all to read one day. In a world of greed and exploitation of mankind can no longer suppress that which is truth.?

Medal of Honor recipient Admiral Richard E. Byrd allegedly wrote his encounter with a lost civilization in Antarctica. According to Hollow Earth theorists, Byrd met ancient race underground in the South Pole.

How was this left out from Byrd?s mission: Operation Highjump? Could it be one big hoax conspiracy theorists love to fantasize?

According to Byrd?s ?diary,? the government ordered Byrd to remain silent for what he witnessed during his Arctic assignment:

March 11, 1947

?I have just attended a Staff Meeting at the Pentagon. I have stated fully my discovery and the message from the Master. All is duly recorded. The President has been advised. I am now detained for several hours (six hours, thirty- nine minutes, to be exact.) I am interviewed intently by Top Security Forces and a Medical Team. It was an ordeal!!!! I am placed under strict control via the National Security provisions of this United States of America. I am ORDERED TO REMAIN SILENT IN REGARD TO ALL THAT I HAVE LEARNED, ON THE BEHALF OF HUMANITY!!! Incredible! I am reminded that I am a Military Man and I must obey orders.?

After many polar accomplishments, Byrd organized Operation Highjump in 1947. The objective: construct an American training and research facility in the South Pole.

A simple military task, right?

Some say the American government sent their troops to the South Pole for any evidence of the rumored German Base 211.

Nazis were fascinated with anything regarding the Aryan race. They traveled all over the world including Antarctica to learn more of alleged origins.

The Germans did make their mark in the South Pole. However, what they have discovered doesn?t compared to what Byrd recorded in his diary.

For thousands of years, people all over the world have written legends about Agartha (sometimes called Agarta or Agarthi), the underground city. Did Byrd find it?

He met ?The Master,? the city?s leader, who told him of his concerns about the surface world:

?Our interest rightly begins just after your Race exploded the first atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. It was that alarming time we sent our flying machines, the ?Flugelrads? to your surface world to investigate what your Race had done?You see, we have never interfered before in your Race?s wars and barbarity. But now we must, for you have learned to tamper with a certain power that is not for your Man, mainly that of atomic energy. Our emissaries have already delivered messages to the power of your World, and yet they do not heed.?

Apparently, the government knew about Agartha before Byrd.

According to the Master, places such as Tibet, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and the North Pole all have tunnels leading to Agartha.

What else did the Master teach Byrd? What about the rest of the Operation Highjump crew? Byrd didn?t uncover the underground world alone.

Whether the whole Hollow Earth story is fact or fiction, it?s great to imagine there are still hidden civilizations out there in the world.
