D'oh!

I first heard this UL more than 15 years ago. The drilling in Siberia supposedly took place in the late 1970s or early 1980s. It was said that the scientists doing the drilling lowered microphones into the deep hole once they hit a levels of 20,000 feet with temperatures exceeding 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.

First of all, why would they lower any microphones into the hole? What sounds did they hope to pick up? If these Russian scientists were atheists, and therefore did not believe in "hell," then they certainly did not anticipate hearing the wailing of the tormented souls of dead unrepentant sinners.

Nevertheless, this story was circulated by fundamentalist Christians--beginning with Paul Crouch on his TBN television show--for years before it was finally debunked.
