Found this the other day and found it very interesting. Thought I would share it with ATS.

13 More Things That Don't Make Sense


Strive as we might to make sense of the world, there are mysteries that still confound us. Here are thirteen of the most perplexing.

Cracking any one of them could yield profound truths.




Axis of Evil

Radiation left from the big bang is still glowing in the sky – in a mysterious and controversial pattern

Dark Flow

Something unseeable and far bigger than anything in the known universe is hauling a group of galaxies towards it at inexplicable speed



Eocene Hothouse

Tens of millions of years ago, the average temperature at the poles was 15 or 20 °C. Now let's talk about climate change



Flyby Anamolies

Space probes using Earth's gravity to get a slingshot speed boost are moving faster than they should. Call in dark matter



Hybrid Life

The fusion of two distinct evolutionary lines is not supposed to work – but the seas are teeming with chimeras that prove it can



Morgellons Disease

Fatigue? Do you feel insects under your skin? Seen any strange fibres sprouting from your body? Then you've got a disease that's not supposed to exist.



The Bloop

During 1997, US undersea monitoring equipment heard a series of sounds far louder than any whale song. They were never heard again



Antimatter Mystery

The big bang should have created matter and antimatter in equal amounts – so why didn't the universe disappear in a puff of self-annihilation?



The Lithium Problem

The universe only contains a third as much lithium as it's supposed to



MAGIC Results

High-energy radiation from a gamma-ray burst reached Earth 4 minutes later than the lower-energy rays. That's not how Einstein said it would be



The Elusive Monopole

Why do magnetic poles always come paired as north and south, never alone?



Noise from the Edge of the Universe

Are dud signals from a gravitational wave detector evidence that the universe is a holographic projection?



The Nocebo Effect

How a diagnosis of terminal illness can come true – even if it's wrong

Well now, that is a really good presentation.

I sure hope some really, really smart people can explain all of these anomalies, because I can't. I'll be watching from the pew in the back row.

And people say that science is boring!

This is fantastic. Curse you! Now I'll be putting off writing that report while I follow up and get thoroughly enmeshed in all those links.

This is what I love to find on ATS!!!

Thx guys or gals, completely agree... love reading new stuff like this! hopefully the collective intelligence of ATS can help to decode some of these mysteries! Would love to see the speculation/explanations that comes up regarding some of these phenomena...

Whichever way you look at the Eocene enigma, it is bad news for life on Earth.
...
Secondly, it suggests that there is no feedback mechanism that will stabilise a warming world against runaway climate change.

WAIT! WAIT! WAIT!

Doesn't the very fact that the earth is NO LONGER AS HOT as the Eocene mean that there is, in all likelihood,some mechanism that will stabilize a warming earth against runaway climate change?

Logic and reason dictate that the truth is the exact opposite of what they wrote in that article. Propaganda anyone? Swing and Miss! Strike One by the media's "scientists."


If the modern Earth goes the same way and plants in the tropics start dying, that will provide yet another way for atmospheric carbon dioxide levels to rise faster.

Sorry guys, but I think all those new plants springing up at the poles will more than make up for some normal extinction of species in the tropic. Add to that the fact that all those dying tropical plants are beneficially sequestering carbon into the ground as they die. Swing and miss! Strike two!

Can anyone find a third strike so we can declare that "New Scientist" is "Out!"?

interesting stuff. most of them i never heard of, need more

To the O.P. cool list, I'm going to check all of them out singularly. *F

If anyone is interested in the bloop noise, I just youtubed it. I wanted to hear what it sounded like, doesn't mean much to me. But I'm thinking that the noises I heard were like a great mystery to scientists. Someone said that it could have just been ice breaking from Antarctica.

I find the bleep noise to be the most interesting out of these 13 phenomena... Was reading the article and several scientists have speculated that it may have been ice breaking off and crashing into the water.. However, there still has not be a consensus by scientists.

The ocean amazes me, and it is more "alien" in the sense that we really know nothing about it. I remember hearing (history channel I think) that we know of only 1% of the animals in the ocean and 5% of the actual ocean. Who knows, there could hundreds of giant sea creatures that dwell in the deep abyss of the oceans that we have yet to discover.

And I am by no means an expert in this field... however I found this very interesting, Arctic Temperatures Highest in 2,000 Years in the fact that the temperatures of the arctic are increasing and not stabilizing, as so you state.

what about number 14?

14. Roswell.
In new mexico, the government recovered debris from a UFO. The torn metal scraps were fround to be indestructible, among the broken indestructible pieces of metal were 2 intact aliens.



but as far as the lithium problem thing goes, science should be held up to the same standards that scientist have for religion. There are problems with the big bang theory so maybe it didn't happen that way?

I simply pointed out that the Eocene, which was much hotter than today, must certainly have run up against some "feedback mechanism that will stabilise a warming world against runaway climate change." I say this because we are not living on a planet with a climate like Venus.

Yet, the new scientist article uses the existence of a previous time like the Eocene to suggest, contrary to all logic, that, "[The Eocene] suggests that there is no feedback mechanism that will stabilise a warming world against runaway climate change." Well, if something didn't stabilise the warming world, then why is it climatically much cooler today?

How do bees fly though their wings are too small for their bodies?

Anybody got any more explanations for these phenomena? Just curious as to what other ATS members think about these...
