Drilling into hell – Kola superdeep borehole

Culture, Religion, and the Superdeep Borehole

The Kola Superdeep Borehole was planned in the 1960s and drilled during the ’70s and ’80s. In 1989, the world’s deepest artificial point was achieved, 12,262 metres below the surface. Scientists were considering tactics to fight hotter than expected temperatures. They were preparing to switch to titanium alloy pipes to withstand the ascending heat when their project was shut down.

The rig was idle for a number of years while tests were conducted. By 1992, the Soviet Union was collapsing and the ruling autocracy was momentarily powerless. Funding was cut. Various seismic and petrophysics tests continued, but in 2006 the project was shut down completely. The world’s most important well was sealed. By 2008, even the nightwatchman had left. Today the place is abandoned and decaying.

The Kola well continues to influence our understanding of the deep crust. In a similar way, a deep borehole into the mantle might contribute startling changes to our perception and understanding of the Earth’s interior.

Meanwhile, Kola has inadvertently encouraged some odd religious misconceptions about what lies below us. There are still millions of people in the world who believe that there is a real, solid, literal Hell inside the Earth. Some of these people were elated when they learned – from a fundamentalist group – that the well had to be sealed because the Russians had reached Hell.

They claim that the well hit a hollow cavity and extremely hot temperatures. Scientists lowered a microphone down the borehole and heard the agonized screams of millions of burning souls. Many of the scientists immediately repented and joined the fundamentalist movement. Others fled the site and went insane, as would be expected of scientists who refuse to repent even after hearing the screams of damned souls.

There are plenty of people who are convinced that Satan, not Gorbachev, was the reason the drilling stopped. The story was allegedly first printed in 1990 by the Finnish newspaper Ammennusastia, which was published by a group of Pentecostal Christians from Leväsjoki, Finland.

Priviţi-vă sufletul!

“Deja, învăţătura iubirii a fost interpretată greşit de-a lungul istoriei şi mulţi
oameni au căzut victimă doctrinelor false. Securea este însă pregătită. Ea va tăia
copacul care a ascuns sub umbra sa cărarea cea dreaptă, împiedicând lumina divină să
ajungă până la cei rătăciţi.

Înainte ca Eu să Mă pot întoarce pe pământ, orice umbră spirituală va trebui
eliminată, căci Eu sunt lumina vieţii şi nu pot tolera umbra, învăţătura Mea v-a fost dată
tocmai pentru a ilumina toate colţurile creaţiei materiale şi spirituale. Viaţa voastră materială are deopotrivă aspecte luminoase şi aspecte întunecate, la fel cum pe pământ ziua alternează cu noaptea. Acest lucru se dovedeşte însă absolut necesar, căci întreaga creaţie materială are nevoie de odihna din timpul nopţii, când energia risipită peste zi trebuie să se refacă, iar organismul să se fortifice pentru activităţile de a doua zi. În lumea spirituală lucrurile se petrec cu totul altfel, căci acolo nu există decât zi, manifestată sub forma luminii eterne, a iubirii eterne, a căldurii eterne şi a activităţii eterne. Noaptea nu reprezintă acolo decât o aparenţă, fiind manifestată întotdeauna de ignoranţa spiritelor imature, şi nu în mod natural.

Priviţi-vă sufletul! Deşi este captiv într-un corp material, el nu doarme niciodată,
lucrând zi şi noapte la pregătirea corpului său spiritual, pe care doreşte să-l ia cu el în lumea de dincolo, într-o stare cât mai apropiată de perfecţiune. Întreaga creaţie spirituală are aceeaşi aspiraţie, şi orice obstacol care încearcă să i se opună trebuie să dispară, lucru devenit extrem de vizibil în epoca modernă. Toate instituţiile, chiar şi cele planificate şi organizate cu grijă de secole, nu sunt altceva decât case clădite pe nisip (chiar şi cele care par să facă foarte mult bine pe pământ), neputând rezista în faţa
furtunilor provocate de lumina divină a adevărului.”
