I have heard legends and stories that there is evidence that the Earth is either Hollow or Football stadium shaped. Many ancient cultures seem to believe it certainly wasn't spherical. I have also heard of expeditions near the North pole where explorers would find warm, tropical-like lands populated with mythic beasts and peoples of archaic lore. Shamballa, Atlantis, Agartha, Thule, etc., all could be distant lands beyond our maps. Obviously, this sounds very farfetched given our knowlegable scientific community, but I just need some clarification or more theories.
