I have an obsession with the unsolved or unexplained mysteries in the world. It sparks my imagination to think of how these things happened. I used to love the TV show Unsolved Mysteries, and my Firestick keeps recommending it. Here is a list of a few of my favorite mysteries and why I can’t get enough of them!
The great pyramids of Egypt have always been an interesting topic to me. There are a lot of interesting theories surrounding the pyramids with most of them surrounding their use or how they were built. What is so fascinating about them is how much we still don’t know. Within the ruins of the surrounding area rudimentary batteries have been found. How would they use electricity? Did they have rudimentary light bulbs as well that did not survive? The Sphynx, which is even more ancient, has been found to have chambers underneath it that remain unexplored. What curiosities could we find in those hidden chambers? Do they have traps in them like the later tombs of ancient pharaohs?
Now I know there are many crop circles that have been faked over the years, but there are also many that have unexplained origins. The most interesting case is that of the Arecibo Answer. In 2001 a large rectangular message in the form of indented crops was found. Many see it as being a possible response to a message beamed into space by Carl Sagan in 1974. It is said to include a DNA structure of an alien race based on Silicon as opposed to Carbon along with a depiction of the typical ‘grey’ type of alien. Is it all just a hoax? That is the most likely explanation, but what if it isn’t? Perhaps there are other crop circles that are real attempts by aliens to communicate. Perhaps the fields are just convenient landing spots for alien spacecraft. Out of all the thousands of crop circles each year, is it possible that at least a handful of them aren’t faked?
There are so many conspiracy theories based around this that I don’t know where to begin. It is likely that we will never know what truly happened unless you fully believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I find this highly unlikely considering that even with a magic bullet there was at least 1 other bullet that ricocheted off the asphalt that day according to multiple sources. I found another documentary on Netflix that consulted a forensics expert to be quite enlightening. It proved that the magic bullet theory wasn’t as crazy as the Oliver Stone film JFK makes it seem. It also provides an alternate theory that sounds plausible. Still, there is very little that is certain when it comes to what actually happened, and with more witnesses passing away as time goes by, it is unlikely that we will ever know the full truth of what happened.
A strange structure that is also known as the American Stonehenge is located in Georgia. It is inscribed in several languages with what seems like instructions on how the human population should constrain itself going forward. The problem is that the population constraints have been far surpassed. The people who paid for and put together these instructions seem to be anticipating an apocalypse or nuclear war that will decimate the world’s population. Some people think that these are the satanist 10 commandments that are meant to be followed after the events of the book of Revelation. All we have currently is speculation on who did this or what their intentions were.
There are many others that I could name that capture the imagination, but some of them are not necessarily unique. There are many unexplained alien sightings, people disappearing, or spiritual/paranormal activities that are all similar stories. I will write in more detail about these and other oddities in the future. These are only a few that have grabbed my attention. What are some of your favorite unsolved mysteries?
