While the sounds are questionable, the eerie notion of hell deep beneath the Earth has been mentioned throughout history. According to the Bible, the world itself will become a living hell at the end of days. This incident known as “The Well to Hell” happened in Siberia, Russia. A drilling expedition dug deep enough into the Earth to discover the crying sounds of the damned. This borehole was so deep it reached 10 miles deep into the Earth. The location is in Murmansk Oblast, Russia.
A large methane gas reservoir was discovered in the process. With the environmental impact of this event, geologists elected to burn it off. This gas still burns today since 1971. The urban legend part of this were the voices heard on this strange recording—captured by an extremely heat tolerant microphone. Some of deemed this to be fake while others believe it to be real. The temperature beneath the ground was reported at 2,000 °F (1,090 °C).
The Russian engineers were led by an individual named “Mr. Azzacov”. This is what he said:
“As a communist I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell, We are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of hell!” ~ Finland Newspaper, Ammenusastia
The questionable sounds heard were supposedly a remix of a soundtrack from the film Baron Blood (1972). Different sound effects were also added in to create the effect. However, if this happened…how come it was done using the effects from a film released one year later? Perhaps someone got a hold of an early yet to be released copy? This is where conspiracy lingers.
Known as the Kola Super deep Borehole, the location geographically is actually located where it shares a border with both Norway and Finland, far away from Siberia. Some believe that this location is just a decoy for the real dig site location. More than likely this was a hoax, however it hasn’t been 100% proven.
There are passages in the Bible which point to an eternal damnation where sinners will burn forever:
In Matthew 25:46, Jesus said, “These shall go away into everlasting punishment but the righteous into eternal life.”
Mark 9:43, “And if your hand makes you sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched.”
Revelation 14:11, “And the smoke of their torment ascends up forever and ever.”
Malachi 4:1,3. “For behold the day is coming burning like and oven, and all the proud, yes allude wickedly shall be as stubble. And the day that is coming shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, that shall leave them neither root nor branch. You shall trample the wicked for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet.”
Perhaps something was discovered, what these sounds actually are is still speculation. This is the deepest known about hole in the world, what is further beyond this is mind boggling at best.
