6 insane discoveries science can't explain

Jul!a Jul!a
I love history and I love mysteries, and the show History's Mysteries was a total winner with me. But I found this article from Cracked instead that shares with us 6 things that science has no logical explanation for. From the Antikythera Mechanism to the Baghdad Battery and of course this list wouldn't be complete if we didn't theorize a tiny bit about Cthulhu. Check it out!

Anybody have any other cool things like that to add?

After reading all that, the idea that extraterrestrials stopped for a visit seems far more plausible.

The Voynich Manuscript is very interesting for two reasons:

1. The first photo they used is a drawing of a woman's reproductive system.
2. It's obviously written backwards.

If the artwork wasn't so shitty, I'd think it was something by da Vinci.

I remember reading about the 'bloop'. I guess I wasn't the only one who thought of the Elder God Cthulhu when it was reported. Either that or Godzilla was belching.

Indeed, I love this sort of thing! I confess I'd never heard of the bloop, though I have heard of one or two of those. But I don't think it was aliens. They travel light-years and they apparently still use gearbox systems?

I think I like the theory about the gear mechanism--- that it was a time machine that exploded upon reaching its destination.

Cracked is so addictive.

The Baghdad Battery keeps popping up in various things I've watched over the years. I remember Mythbusters doing something on it, and a whole bunch of different History Channel shows.

I will have to check that out too. My friends and I are about to go on a Modern Marvels kick, so mayhaps after that.

The second one looks like Elvish. Have they contacted Tolkien nerds to crack it? I could call my middle daughter. She writes and reads Elvish.

I have read and seen on TV that those stone balls were used to put into a track and move heavy objects by placing boards or flat planks on the balls and rolling them in the track, with what they were carrying on top of the planks.
