I got a couple of them..

The Crouch murders
What all is really in the Vatican library?

And on a more personal note.. Some manmade things I've found out in the boonies. Like foundations or cement bases that ya can't quite figure out what it originally was, or why in the heck something like that would be where it is.

I can't answer for others Lucid, but for me the interest in the Crouch murders initially came to be because of the haunting that's associated with it. I wanted to see what the history was behind the legend, then was drawn into the mystery of the history.

One mystery to mee, is why do skeptic mind individuals come into an UNEXPLAINED- Mystery site and just like to battle those who believe in something or look at some historical mystery that defines human ability, yet the structures are there in plain sight. I really am enjoying this thread though, and again, Im really enjoying reading up on some of the new unexplained mysteries you guys like that I have not heard of before.

I take it you mean /defies/ human ability.

And the reason some people like me come here is because a lot of the claims made by people touting unexplained mysteries are false. They're lying or distorting information, and the people repeating those tales don't know it. They need additional information that people selling books or making YouTube documentaries aren't going to give them, because then those people wouldn't be able to sell their books or videos. Some people love history and don't want to see it distorted and are around to prevent that.

Other people want specific information about past civilizations, or about the sciences and studies regarding those civilizations to learn more about the mysteries.

In short, they want to discuss and debate. If everyone here agreed exactly, there would be no point to a discussion forum.

Its created after Europeans set foot on Island. Probably because those toothless natives start loosing oralist due their own stupidity and because they were being taken as slaves so to preserve their tradition they invented it.I bet there is nothing ancient behind their script exept some Polynesian Brothers Grimm,

Real classy L.
I gather you mean "Maori," and the whole population is toothless and monumentally stupid.
Is that right?

Seems to me the guy must've done a series on signs in the sky indicating the population was fixin' to burn for eternity in Hell's unholy flames - possibly the Lake of Fire Itself.  No doubt for a tidy, if not princely, sum from the local Bishop(s)

Harte

I would add that this interpretation would be in keeping with an already established use of such imagery in in apocalyptic pamphlets created by protestant reformers in connection with anti catholic propaganda which cast the pope as the antichrist. There could well have been an astrological event which I am sure people claimed as a sign to re enforce their beliefs, to assume this event (if it occurred) was never exaggerated or was illustrated with no bias towards the spectacular would be a mistake.

So any Harte i hear that Roanoke thing hasn't been solved.

The 'Moai' are those huge-headed statues found on the Easter Island.

natives who lived on Rapa Nui were  theethless and their leadership was stupid for which we have evidence.

There is still treasure in the Great Pyramid? Khufu?? Why is there such a problem getting to it? Especially with our equipment and it being 2013. I understand not wanting to damage anything or risk screwing anything up but why is this a problem, you figure they have the technology to get in there?

Also, the Library at Alexandria always fasciantes me. I feel like we would have learned soooo much stuff about our history if it was still around. But, what is the mystery exactly, to this day surrounding the Library?
