The world is filled with questions that are yet to be answered. In fact, our entire existence is still a mystery. Over the years, more and more mysteries flourished with less and less answers. Let us take a look at some of the biggest mysteries that gave us more questions than answers.
10. The Taos Hum
On the town of Taos in New Mexico, people keep hearing a faint buzz. This sound can be compared to that of a diesel engine heard from afar. The mysterious part is that although it is heard by the ears, it is not detected in any sound devices. Worse, no one really knows how the sounds were created or where they came from up to this day.
9. Jack the Ripper’s real identity
We have heard various serial killers story in the past and they were all horrible acts. Jack the Ripper was no exemption. In fact, he is the most notorious of them all as he murdered a lot of women over the years. He mostly targeted women in London’s east end during the late 1800’s. Most of the victims were prostitutes. He did not just rape them, but also killed them and mutilated their bodies. He also slashed their throats and the victims were usually unrecognizable once found. Despite all the clues that were found and series of investigations, no one really knew who Jack the Ripper is or if he is just one person.
The CIA headquarters in Virginia is filled with brilliant minds. After all, they won’t be allowed to work there if not for their intelligence. Just outside the headquarters, you can find a statue with coded encryption. It was created by Jim Sanborn. Of the 4 codes that were placed on the statue, only 3 were cracked through the years. The 4th one remains a mystery until now. Not even the best minds of CIA have cracked the code. Sanborn said that he created the sculpture for he believes all codes can be cracked. Well, it’s totally ironic it hasn’t been until now.
7. Georgia Guidestones
These stones were the American version of the Stonehenge of London. They can be found at the Elbert County. The weird part about these structures is that they were built only in 1979. If anything, there should already be answers to all the questions surrounding it. Anyway, the new commandments were written on the stones in various languages. The mysterious part is that no one really knows why these stones exist or for whom they were created.
6. The Wow! Signal
Jerry R. Ehman worked on the SETI Project in Ohio when he suddenly picked up a radio frequency that was from the outer space. It was from a deeper part of space. This came from the constellation Sagittarius and it was never heard again. The signal lasted for 72 seconds. Until now, no one really knows where the signal came from. It only got the Wow! Signal name because Ehman wrote it on his printout margin.
5. The mystery surrounding the SS Ourang Medan
The SS Ourang Medan or “Man from Medan” was from Malaysia. It is one of the most mysterious sea-related accidents ever. It sailed in 1947. During the voyage, there was an SOS message that was sent saying that everyone on board, including the captain and the entire crew, was dead. Even the telegrapher died after the transmission of the message. Eventually, someone was able to receive the distress call. Upon inspection, it was confirmed that everyone on board died. The cause of death though remains a mystery. There are theories about having ghosts on board while others thought it was due to chemical poisoning.
4. The Borden Murders
We have already witnessed several unresolved murder cases until now. If it can happen now, you can only imagine how many cases were unresolved in the past. The death of Andrew and Abby Borden in 1892 remains a mystery. They died in their homes in Massachusetts. Their daughter was the primary suspect due to circumstantial evidence. Just hours after the deliberation, she was acquitted. Since then, many other potential murderers were pointed, including an illegitimate brother and a local doctor. The case remains unresolved though.
3. MH 370’s disappearance
Perhaps, this is the most familiar case of all. The disappearance of a Malaysian Airlines plane in 2014 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing remains a mystery despite efforts to locate it. Using the latest in modern technology, the plane was searched but to no avail. Just recently, the search was stopped due to lack of funding. Several parts of the plane were found in various locations over the months though. There is still no clear explanation about the loss.
2. The Alien Autopsy
You might have seen this video before where a real-life alien autopsy was done. It was produced by Ray Santilli. He claimed that the video was real and he found it among 22 reels of films by military cameramen over 40 years. In 2006, he admitted that the film was made with a model-maker but still insisted that the 17-minute film that was released was real. Whether he is lying or not, no one really knows.
1. Spontaneous Human Combustion
This is a weird issue where someone can just burst into flame without an external heat source. This might seem like something out of a fiction book, but there were several recorded cases even until now. On why it happens and how it can be prevented, no one really knows.
These mysteries remain as mysteries for now, and we will never know if we can finally find answers to them soon.
