It is the source of all true art and science."
Mysteries....Is there anything else like them? They keep us intrigued and facinated. They fire our imagination and keep us on the edge of our seats. Since the beginning of time man has delved into the unexplained trying to find an answer, an understanding to the riddles of life, the universe, and ourselves. That desire has been the fuel that drove our minds to so many amazing accomplishments. Space travel and exploration, Archaelogical discoveries and some of the greatest inventions of all times. The thirst for KNOWLEDGE.
Stonehenge This ancient monument stands silently on the Salisbury Plain in southern England. Who built it and why? Could it have served as an observatory, an ancient clock or calendar, used to track eclipses and the coming of the seasons?
Atlantis The story of Atlantis begins quite literally with two of Plato's dialogues, Timaeus and Critias. These accounts are the only known written records which refer specifcally to a lost civilization called Atlantis. Many people believe the tale to be complete fiction, the creation of a philosopher's imagination used to illustrate an argument. Others believe that the story was inspired by catastrophic events which may have destroyed the Minoan civilization on Crete and Thera. Still others maintain that the story is an accurate representation of a long lost and almost completely forgotten land.
Oak Island One of the most intriguing and frustrating puzzles of all time. The 200 year search for buried treasure on a bobby-trapped island off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. Millions of dollars have been spent and six people killed, yet the treasure still eludes all seekers. What lies at the bottom of this mystery?
Mars has fired the curiosity and imagination of mankind for thousands of years. From the times of the Greek god of war, Ares, to our current spaceage Mars has continued to fascinate. In the late 1800s, the "discovery" of "canals" on Mars captured the attention of thousands and launched a search for intelligent life on Mars. One hundred years later, after the canals have been widely dismissed, a mysterious "face" and strange pyramid shapes spark discussions again.
Nostradamus Michel de Nostredame - Could he see the future? Is there truth in his prophecies or is there enough ambiguity that anyone who looks hard enough can, in hindsight, predict almost any major political or military action of the last 500 years?
The Bermuda Triangle The Bermuda Triangle has long been full of mysteries. More than 100 ships and planes have vanished there since 1945. Lost with them have been more than 1,000 lives.
Easter Island Easter Island has long been the subject of curiosity and speculation. How and why did its inhabitants carve and transport the massive statues which surround the island? What remains of this culture today, and what lessons can we learn from their legacy?
