I can't understand why. Well, for starters, it's not scientific. Tabetha Boyajian, one the astrophysicists who identified a phenomenon in another solar system that the media speculated was an alien megastructure , told VICE. Boyajian, adds that Varaug fails to create consistent terms to talk about the hypothesis, a vital step in the scientific process.
Even given the benefit of the doubt, Donut Earth Theory doesn't hold up to basic scientific interrogation. VICE reached out to Dinosaur Neil and others who seem to take the idea seriously to ask why and didn't hear back. The wind would be so strong that violent weather would make life on torus Earth very difficult. Oxford professor Dr. Anders Sandberg went deep into modeling how different the conditions on a donut-shaped planet would be for i For instance, gravity would be noticeably weaker close to the inner and outer equators, and stronger closer to the poles.

As a geologist myself, it's Hutton's observations and thought process and how he presents them that I find impressive, way back in , in Scotland.
