The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''

People didn't know what they'd find. Although the 1820s seems awfully early for such an endeavor, people just didn't know what was under the mantle of the Earth. Many people proposed that the Earth was hollow, but having it be like an onion with layers, is an interesting one.

Physics and a little calculus tell us that a hollow spherical shell has a gravitational potential of exactly zero anywhere inside volume of the shell. The reason is that the gravitational vectors from all over the interior of the sphere literally cancel out for every single point inside the volume of the shell, provided the shell is a perfect sphere and has no density gradients anywher. The physics for that was well known by then, but that didn't stop dreamers from conjuring up fantastic worlds inside our own.

What's bizarre to me is the assumption by the explorer that there was a passage to the deeper layers, sight unseen.

Usually, the method goes: we find a hole, it seems deep, I wonder where it goes. Let's get funding to find out.

His method was, let's take a hundred men, tromp about Siberia, and presume we'll find a hole.

Quite possibly an attempt to disguise an invasion recon expeditionary mission?

Various governments loved to use so-called zoological, geological, or geographical scientific expeditions as cover stories
for intelligence gathering from ~ 1800 until past WW1 - Rudyard Kipling wrote of it and popularized the phrase "The Great Game"...

it unfortunately led to many legitmitate scientific endevours to be blamed as "spies" !

Doesn't fit his personality. JQ Adams was an accomplished stateman and ambassador who opposed both the Annexation of Texas (after his term) and the war with Mexico. Earlier, as President he tried repeatedly to convince congress to actively engage in dialogue and cordial relations with Latin American countries. He was also opposed to slavery, he felt the Mexican American war was just a pretext to expand slavery and would become poisonous to the United States. In fact, many contemporary people including General and then President Grant himself felt that way, and historically their bad omen was proven correct, because it contributed to the American Civil War, by offering new territories to be available for slavery which deepened the divide between the North and South.
