7 of the world's wildest mysteries

29 Aug 2022

Bimini Road - The road to Atlantis?

Everyone has heard the story of the sunken city of Atlantis, but have you heard of the mystery behind Bimini Road before?

In 1968, an underwater road and wall-like formation was discovered near the North Bimini Islands in the Bahamas. It was first thought that the underwater tunnel was created by nature, but due to the unusual placement of the stones, many believe it is part of the lost city of Atlantis. The stones have amazed natives, mystics and scientists for generations. Since the stones were discovered, the investigations have been characterised by both weird and real science, all of which have only served to intensify the mystery. A number of scientists believe that similar rock formations can be found in other parts of the world and therefore point to them being man-made by ancient civilisations. In a recent expedition, amateur archaeologist Dr Greg Little discovered a second series of rocks in the same formation just below the first, leading him to believe that the road is actually the top of a wall. The question remains: a wall around what? Bimini Road stretches for approximately 800 metres and has a J-like format. The stones are rectangular and are almost 20 metres underwater.

Stonehenge - The great stones that came out of the blue

We stay in the world of geology, but move a little closer to Denmark to the Stonehenge phenomenon in England.

People interested in conspiracy theories and mysteries may be familiar with Stonehenge, considered by many to be the world's most mysterious site. This set of stones was laid in a horseshoe-shaped ring on the empty Salisbury plain more than 4000 years ago. The stones are of the Sarsen type, which is a hard type of sandstone weighing more than 25 tonnes. So where's the mystery in a couple of giant stones, you might ask? The reason Stonehenge is shrouded in mystery is because no one is quite sure who built the monument and how they went about it. A popular theory advanced in the 19th century was that the Druids, a people who existed in Britain before the Roman conquest, had built it as a temple. However, modern archaeologists have investigated this theory further and have shown that the construction of Stonehenge was completed at least 1,000 years before the Druids came to power. Despite this, modern Druids have claimed Stonehenge and hold an annual ceremony at the summer solstice. However, several studies have proven that Stonehenge dates back as far as 11,000 years, so in short, no one is sure how the cave's heavy stones were placed there and why.

The Nazca Lines - The drawings no one will stand by

In the desert of Peru lies one of the most mystifying monuments in the world - the massive geoglyphs known as the Nazca Lines. From geometric patterns to 'drawings' of various animal and human-like forms that can only be seen from high above, they leave generations speechless. Who built them and what was their purpose? Are they just old crop circles? Or perhaps landing strips for alien gods/astronauts? Or have aliens been at play and created a giant astronomical calendar? There are even theories that this is the work of a cult.

The Nasca lines are located in the Pampa region of Peru. The desolate plain of the Peruvian coast that includes the Pampas of San Jose (Jumana), Socos, El Ingenio and others in the province of Nasca, located 400 km. South of Lima covers an area of approximately 450 square kilometres of sandy desert and the slopes of the contours of the Andes.

The lines were first discovered when commercial airlines began flying over the Peruvian desert in the 1920s. Passengers reported seeing 'primitive landing stripes' in the ground below. No one knew who had built them or why. Since their discovery, the Nazca lines have inspired fantastic explanations. The Nazca plain is almost unique for its ability to preserve the markings on it due to the combination of the climate (one of the driest on Earth, with only twenty minutes of rainfall per year) and the flat, rocky ground that minimises the effect of wind on the ground surface. With no dust or sand to cover the plain and little rain and wind, the lines remain maintained. Many of the lines form geometric shapes: angles, triangles, clusters, spirals, rectangles, wavy lines, etc. Other lines form concentric circles. Many of the lines are random and seem to have no pattern to them. They are seen scattered seemingly at random across the desolate plain, crossing and intersecting for no apparent reason.

Bermuda Triangle - Where did people go?

Also known as the Devil's Triangle, the Bermuda Triangle is an area bounded by points in Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico where ships and planes are alleged to mysteriously disappear into thin air - or deep water?

The term "Bermuda Triangle" was coined in 1964 by author Vincent Gaddis. "The Bermuda Triangle." The mystery has since been promoted in thousands of books, magazines, TV shows and websites. Over the years, many theories have been proposed, all attempting to explain the mystery. Some authors have expanded on the idea that Atlantis lies at the bottom of the ocean under the Bermuda Triangle and it is Atlantis' crystal energies that cause ships and planes to sink. Other, more fanciful suggestions include time portals, where a rift in the universe's space-time structure opens up in this particular triangle area, and rumours of alien bases underwater.

Still others believe that the explanation lies in some kind of extremely rare, geological or hydrological explanation. It involves ships and aeroplanes being destroyed by pockets of flammable methane gas that react when lightning or other electrical sparks come into contact with the sea. Other theories include mysterious geomagnetic abnormalities causing navigational problems that confuse pilots and somehow cause them to plunge into the sea. The theories are countless, so it's really just a matter of choosing which one you favour.

Area 51 - The area we all want to know exists

If you have access to the internet, you've probably seen the sea of memes, reddit threads and tweets about the infamous Area 51. But what's it all really about?

The US military base, located in an undisclosed location in the desert, has long been the centre of a conspiracy among alien fans and ufologists (people who search for UFOs). Somewhere in the middle of Area 51's vast desert expanse, they believe there is a heavily protected underground laboratory where the government holds and examines captured alien aircraft and perhaps even aliens. The belief that Area 51's military base is a cover for alien research has been completely mythologised by pop culture over the years. A number of entutastic alien fans even plan to visit Area 51 on their own. However, the US military has gone on record stating that those who arrive hoping to find parked flying saucers and green aliens will surely be disappointed for two reasons. The first is that no one is allowed to approach the site, which is located in the state of Nevada. The second is that Area 51 is the headquarters of the US surveillance programme. In the 1950s, it was the place where some of the most important spy planes in American history were assembled, tested and ultimately sent on missions. Experts say it's likely to remain an area for the Air Force and US spy agencies to develop the next generation of aircraft and other weapons of war. It's no wonder the secrets of Area 51 are buried so deep. But the lack of information about what actually goes on at Area 51 has allowed the many rumours and myths about the place to flourish. These myths have led many Americans to believe that they deserve to know about what happens there.

Amelia Earhart - The plane that disappeared

Amelia Earhart is one of history's most prominent figures in aviation and has been the inspiration for numerous films, books and plays. Born in 1897, Earhart rose to fame due to her astonishing achievements as a female pilot. At the time, being both a woman and a pilot meant facing many obstacles, and even her own family discouraged her from learning to fly. Despite these challenges, she set countless aviation records and became the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

However, it's her unfortunate disappearance after she began her ambitious global flight in 1937 that has captivated people to this day. On 1 June 1937, Earhart and Fred Noonan, her navigator, set off on their transcontinental flight in a twin-engine Lockheed Electra aircraft. Less than a month later, they reached Lae, New Guinea, having flown 22,000 miles and with 7,000 more to go before reaching Oakland again. After departing Lae, they had to fly another 2,500 miles before reaching their next stop - Howland Island, an incredibly small island in the Pacific Ocean - to refuel. Unfortunately, cloudy skies, radio problems and low fuel meant Earhart and Noonan didn't reach their destination. Despite extreme efforts to locate the plane, which ended up being the most expensive air and sea search in American history, there was no sign of Earhart or Noonan anywhere. Earhart was officially pronounced dead on 5 January 1939. What happened after the crash is still unclear. Several theories have emerged that are still debated to this day. One theory suggests that Earhart was a secret agent for the US government and that she was captured by the Japanese for trying to spy on Japanese-occupied islands. The more common theory is that Earhart and Noonan reached an uninhabited island, Nikumaroro, where artefacts such as tools and plane wrecks were later found. No theory has ultimately been proven true, and Earhart's disappearance remains one of the most popular mysteries in American history.

Crop circles

Crop circles - strange patterns that mysteriously appear overnight in farmers' fields - leave people wondering. The circles are mostly found in the UK, but have spread to dozens of countries around the world in recent decades. The mystery has inspired countless books, blogs, fan groups, scientists (called "cereologists") and even Hollywood films. Despite being studied for decades, the question remains: Who - or what - creates them?

Some claim that the first crop circles (although they weren't called that at the time) appeared near the small town of Tully, Australia. In 1966, a farmer said he saw a flying saucer rise from a swampy area and fly away. Crop circles only really started to appear in the 1970s, when simple circles began to appear in the English countryside. The number and complexity of circles increased dramatically, reaching a peak in the 1980s and 1990s when increasingly detailed circles were produced, including those illustrating complex mathematical equations. In July 1996, one of the world's most complex and spectacular crop circles appeared in England across a motorway from the mysterious and world-famous Stonehenge monument in the Wiltshire countryside (wait, didn't we just read about that?). It was an astonishing pattern, later called the Julia Set. The complexity of the Julia Set initiated theories about whether or not the creators were of human intelligence. Generally, theories suggest that aliens were responsible for the UFO and ripping up the fields. However, it remains a controversial position. What's worth noting about crop circles, however, is that unlike other mysterious phenomena such as psychic powers, ghosts or Bigfoot, there is no doubt that crop circles are "real". The evidence that they exist is clear and overwhelming.
