Is this a good idea?
What Socio said? No it isn't.

What the scientists are doing? Yes it is.

(I think it is worth the price tag, but that is because (a) I am a scientist, and (B) I like seeing governments spend 9-figure sums on something unrelated to making weapons, although I am willing to concede that antipoverty and antihunger initiatives may be more worthwhile.)

If they miscalculate, drill to far, puncture the outer core

That would have to be the mother of all miscalculations - to the tune of a couple of thousand miles.

Oh don't worry, the gov will find a way to weaponize what ever they find :)

What could possibly go wrong?

What if the earth houses an entire race of some species that don't need this world-destructing nature of man? Just what if?

The Core has been one of my most favorite movies of all times, not because of the acting or directing, but because the entire idea of it is intriguing to me. And I would LOVE to live in a cave of amethyst. I would be in heaven living in a cave like that.

I think they are biting off far more than they should, and that they should back off from this.

No.. you are just joking aren't you?? Seriously? You do know the pressures and temperatures down there...

Volcanoes have been doing this for eras, bringing magma to the surface, and you wont find amethyst down there either

Did they say anything about sending a mic down there to see if they hear anything?  Maybe whatever is making the Bloop sound is there too...

So you don't do "what ifs..."? OK, I get it. There is no dreaming of possiblities with you, right? Oh well, maybe on some parallel universe, huh?

You're entire warning is founded on a "what if". What if your house is rigged to explode the next time you sleep? Oh noes!

If they miscalculate, drill to far, puncture the outer core sending tons of molten liquid gushing to the surface like a massive magma oil gusher it could destroy the magnetic field, we will lose our atmosphere and the polar axis would be constantly shifting causing massive earthquakes all over the globe possibly even moving entire continents not that anyone would be still be alive to witness it. Just saying.

Or... A more sane and scientific answer would have been;

They'll let all the air out, and the world will deflate.

I really don't think they should do this considering this.

I hope they have given this careful consideration and done research so they don't destroy the planet.
