Just a little fodder for discussion. Perhaps you've heard of some of these and have done deeper research? All 10 are interesting to me, but the one about the tiny person mummy, the pipes in China and the Voynich Manuscript are really intriguing.






Unsolved ancient mysteries have captivated man for centuries. For most of us these enduring mysteries might unlock some secrets from our ancient ancestors. For others, including the worlds greatest minds, the challenge of deciphering these ancient codes and mysteries is an enigma that could lead to great fame and possibly fortune.

Other are convinced that our ancient ancestors had access to incredible knowledge and technologies that have been lost over time and will not be gained again until man reaches a higher consciousness. Whatever you believe, these remain ten of the greatest mysteries still unsolved.

Those are some of the best mysteries on the planet, IMO. Thanks for posting; I'd forgotten about a couple of 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. And there are submerged tunnels connecting each island. Radiocarbon studies place the creation of the city to 200 BC, but how the builders managed to transport the stones, largest weighting 50 tons. 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.

I like the stories, but the Baigong Pipes one is... well, I see no evidence of such features. The picture shows what appear to be columnar basalts, which are well known geological features. I'm not saying the pipes are a lie, but that picture is not of pipes.

For comparison, take a look at the below pictures of rather rust-coloured basalts. (Note, basalt is often found grey-black, not brown.)

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.

Of those only the voynich is a true mystery

The Voynich manuscript is possibly linked to the Aztecs-recent research claims many of the plants in the manuscript are Mexican,and it is speculated that the language may be an extinct version of Nahuatl(the aztec language).

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!

The pillar of Delhi is easily explained . Add an X amount of nickel to iron ( I can't remember the proportions ) and the iron will never rust.

The pillar must be a fluke . Made from iron ore that already contained nickel when mined.

Howdy

Other than the V manuscript there isn't any great mystery in the rest of the items, they are well known, with extensive threads on all of them.

Those nine that aren't mysterious have been debunked continuously. They simply aren't 'mysterious'.

I would challenge anyone who thinks those are mysterious to research them, read the fringe accounts of them (some have multiple contradictory theories attached t them) then the mainstream evidence and explanation, if you can find a hole in the mainstream theory why not present that?

The stone columns are columnar basalt, a natural basalt formation.

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
