Every day in the world, people are telling stories about new mysteries who are revealed very fast, but there are few mysteries who are still bothering the great minds.
These are the 10 Biggest unsolved mysteries in the world:
Bigfoot is best known for scaring the climbers and hunters in North America. Those who claim to have seen this thing, described it as a creature with a height of 2.3 meters which looks like an ape, but walks upright like a human. Scientists don’t believe that something so big could remain hidden for so long, but they can’t prove that.
Most scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a living animal, because of the lack of physical evidence and the large numbers of creatures that would be necessary to maintain a breeding population. A few scientists, such as Jane Goodall, Grover Krantz, and Jeffrey Meldrum, have expressed interest and some measure of belief in the creature.
Well famous Nessie is a mystery which first appeared in 1933. The creature supposedly lives in the Loch Ness Lake which is located in Scotland. People believe that Nessie is a prehistoric creature. Scientists have not yet managed to find solid evidence of its existence, but the majority of the population around the lake, claims that they have seen the creature at least once with their own eyes.
Plato described Atlantis as a naval force island that around 9000 BC, it contained most parts of Western Europe and North America, but in one day disappeared below the sea level. Although even in the time of Plato, the story of Atlantis was considered as a myth, nowadays it attracts big attention among adventurers and historians. – See more: The 10 LOST Civilizations and Worlds
Scholars dispute whether and how much Plato’s story or account was inspired by older traditions. In Critias, Plato claims that his accounts of ancient Athens and Atlantis stem from a visit to Egypt by the legendary Athenian lawgiver Solon in the 6th century BC. In Egypt, Solon met a priest of Sais, who translated the history of ancient Athens and Atlantis, recorded on papyri inEgyptian hieroglyphs, into Greek. Some scholars argue Plato drew upon memories of past events such as the Thera eruption or the Trojan War, while others insist that he took inspiration from contemporary events like the destruction of Helike in 373 BC or the failed Athenian invasion of Sicily in 415–413 BC.
The possible existence of a genuine Atlantis was discussed throughout classical antiquity, but it was usually rejected and occasionally parodied by later authors. Alan Cameron states: “It is only in modern times that people have taken the Atlantis story seriously; no one did so in antiquity”. The Timaeus remained known in a Latin rendition by Calcidius through the Middle Ages, and the allegorical aspect of Atlantis was taken up by Humanists in utopian works of several Renaissance writers, such asFrancis Bacon‘s New Atlantis and Thomas More‘s Utopia. Atlantis inspires today’s literature, from science fiction to comic books to films. Its name has become a byword for any and all supposed advanced prehistoric lost civilizations.
The Pyramids in Egypt are perhaps the biggest puzzle that man have ever met. They are about 5,000 years old. The largest pyramid is high as a 40 story building and covers an area on which could be placed 10 football fields. For its construction were used more than 2 million stone blocks, each of which weighs 2 to 5 tons. Scientists believe that this kind of structure in that time took 400,000 workers and 20 years to complete.
The Mayan civilization is followed by many mysteries that may never be disclosed. Much of their culture is lost with time. Latest actual mystery was their calendar which scared many archaeologists and civilians. Some of them believed that the calendar predicts the end of the world in 2012, while others believed that it is just incomplete.
The Maya peoples survived the Classic period collapse and the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores and sixteenth-century Spanish colonization of the Americas. Today, the Maya and their descendants form sizable populations throughout the Maya area; they maintain a distinctive set of traditions and beliefs resulting from the merger of pre-Columbian and post-Conquest ideas and cultures. Millions of people speak Mayan languages today. In 2005 theRabinal Achí, a play written in the Achi language, was declared a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
