Scientists discover a massive ocean deep within the Earth

• dvice.com
But scientists at Northeastern University in Illinois have just published a paper that describes a newly discovered ocean, and this one actually contains more water than all of the previously known bodies of water on Earth combined.

The difference is that this ocean is deep within the Earth's mantle, some 400 miles below the surface. To figure out what was going on down there, the researchers studied seismic waves generated by more than 500 earthquakes. These waves can continue vibrating for days as the shockwaves pass through the Earth's mantle and core, reflecting back and forth. By measuring their speed, we can learn about the material they are passing through. Dr. Steve Jacobsen at Northwestern says that scientists have been able to study two diamonds from this area deep in the Earth's mantle, that were expelled during volcanic eruptions.

Sometimes some of these scientists can get a little nuts. From the article:

"The difference is that this ocean is deep within the Earth's mantle, some 400 miles below the surface."
and
"Dr. Steve Jacobsen at Northwestern says that scientists have been able to study two diamonds from this area deep in the Earth's mantle, that were expelled during volcanic eruptions."
We all know that volcanic eruptions are extremely hot. And now we have an ocean down there in the middle of all this heat? Are these science guys nuts, or what? There's gotta be some simple explanation, right? The explanation is that they use the words like "if" so that when it is proven that they don't know what they are talking about, nobody can go back to them and call them kooks. Yet they continue to spout their crap just like it's gospel.

Who knows what we will find 400 miles down into the earth? One thing is for sure, if it doesn't fit all their "theories," They'll make like they knew all along what they were talking about!

It's all political, folks. Scientists are simply another brand of politician, paid by the ruling class to keep the rest of us dumbed down as much as possible.
