I was looking over images of the Voynich Manuscript on Wikipedia and I swear I see my first and last name on one of the pages with 2 letters added at the end, but still...very odd!
Now I am extremely interested in knowing everything about this.

I'm hoping if they have been debunked or built up, folks will share their knowledge on the specifics.
Also hoping one of the resident ATS code breakers will solve the Voynich Manuscript mystery!

I am sure there will be some in here whom would try to debunk them

Nan Madol is really interesting. Its often called to be Venice of Pacific Ocean. Its a big mystery who built it. And its the only ancient city that is built on coral reef. There are huge stone columns, and no one knows how they got there. Its real engineering marvel. Though its very graceful and elegant, there is no artwork or carvings at all.
They are certainly from a nearby area. There are at least twenty different possible sources of columnar basalt on the island of Pohnpei, where the site is located. link

There are creation myths that say the stones magically flown through air. The source of these stones is unknown, they are not from nearby area.
