Here is a urban legend of a short story about the Well to Hell. I am not sure if many of you heard of it but it.

In the 1980's a scientist in Siberia was drilling for samples and his drill came to a stop about 9 miles down. After he pulled up the drill strange and unusual faint sounds echoing from the hole could be heard. Then they lowered a microphone on the drill and the scientist listened closely and the sounds were identified being as moans and screams coming from that hole, and the only explanation was that they reached the boundaries of hell.

Question... what Microphone has a cable 9 miles long? After a certain distance, the cable starts to act as a HUGE capacitor, and it would cause the microphone to cease functioning. Wireless stuff hadn't even come around yet, and 9 miles is a long distance to transmit anyway even if they did have the technology. I don't buy this one at all.

I will say, this gives me a prop idea... I'll have to see if I can think of a way to make a well to hell. It'll have to be for Halloween 2005 though.

I have heard of this.And for reasons that Zombie mentions, and my natural sckepticism of the religious community as a whole, it is even a bit hard for me to to swallow what is probably like many other tales before it. To me, it is no more than a clever stunt designed to draw others to different relious causes through scare tactics. I believe this no more than I believe in Faith healing, Sasquatch or The Loch Ness Monster.

As Zombie mentioned, there would've been plenty of problems at that depth. BUT, how would they know the depth of the well without some sort of measuring device... that could've reached that depth? and if they couldn't measure the hole, then perhaps it wasn't that deep after all and recording was possible?? Anyone who's peered into a well knows you can only see so far, so 'guessing' the distance (without hitting water first) would be nearly impossible without the right (and very expensive) equipment.

Also, there are microphones that can pick up sounds from an amazing amount of distance, though 9 miles is a bit of a stretch. lol

Still, though I don't subscribe to religious scare tactics such as the devil and 'demons from hell,' I like to think there is still a vast majority of the 'unexplanable' out there. How boring if there weren't.

Can you imagine? Understanding positively everything? Dull, dull, dull. Give me mystery and the unexplanable any day. :cool:

Listening to this tape, I don't think it proves anything. It's just a bunch of sounds mixed together, and could be anything.

I don't think Hell is inside the earth anyways. Sure the Earth's core is probably as hot as Hell, but I've always believed that Heaven and Hell both were spiritual plains that can't be reached by a space ship or an earth drilling apparatus. I do however believe both places exist. But I'm not hear to convince anyone. Just let you all know that's my belief. I just thought that sound file was interesting, and would make a good Haunt sound file.

And that is the exact sound file I shall use when I do in fact make my "Well to Hell" prop.

Oh sorry. I couldn't get it to open. The one I posted was a sound cap from one of art Bell's radio broadcasts. I never listened to him before either. I'm not sure if we even get him here in the boonies of upstate NY. Or as state senator Eliot Spitzer put it...up here where everyone is "backwards adirondack people"......lol. And he's the ass that wants to be the new governor of the state.

The hell, you say. It doesn't exist. At least not as perceived. I'm not sure what those sounds are, but here's some photos of the real hell.

Nuh-uh. Hell is in Michigan, on the Livingston/Washtenaw county border. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hell,_Michigan for demographics.

In fact, for Tax Day (today for most of the country), the postmaster is offering to send out your tax returns specially stamped. See this story:
