Scientists drill to Hell in Russia - Proof?


It all took place in 1960 in Siberia where they allegedly bore a 14.4km hole and the recording was unveiled in 1989 at an American radio station.The sounds may be disturbing.

Sounds of Hell?
Well, the only word I can think of for this is "Poppycock"! First of all, they drilled over fourteen miles into the earth's crust? In 1960? According to wikipedia:

"The Kola Superdeep Borehole (Russian: Кольская сверхглубокая скважина) is the result of a scientific drilling project of the former USSR. The project attempted to drill as deep as possible into the Earth's crust. Drilling began on 24 May 1970 on the Kola Peninsula, using the Uralmash-4E, and later the Uralmash- 15000 series drilling rig. A number of boreholes were drilled by branching from a central hole. The deepest, SG-3, reached 12,262 metres (40,230 ft) in 1989, and is the deepest hole ever drilled, and the deepest artificial point on the earth. For two decades it was also the world's longest borehole, in terms of measured depth along the well bore, until surpassed in 2008 by 12,289 m (40,318 ft) long Al Shaheen oil well in Qatar, and in 2011 by 12,345 metres (40,502 ft) long Sakhalin-I Odoptu OP-11 Well (offshore the Russian island Sakhalin."

So, Poppycock, I say, poppycock. By way of denunciation, I found this article from Truth or Fiction web site, which is pretty interesting and pretty entertain and pretty damning of the above contentions.
The article that tears this apart and explains it all, from Truth or Fiction.

What this really points out is how religions can allow nonsense to seep in. It's Human nature really. But people WANT to believe. In reading this article, I WANTED to believe, just because it's nice to think there is something outside of our humdrum daily lives that is more than, bigger than, extra cooler than, reality, daily life, our usual rut.

Just beware of nonsense and remember the old adage, that if it sounds too good to be true, its not.
