The 10 Most Baffling mysteries of All Times

*Placebo Effect*

The placebo effect is when a person takes something they believe is medicine for an ailment they are suffering (which is not really a medicine),and they get better. A placebo is an inert substance, and when taken (with the advice from others that it will cure them) the person get better, simply because they were expecting or believed that it would work. Something similar,called the nocebo effect, is when a person takes fake drugs and thinks they are experiencing problems that would have been caused by the real drugs. They have been known to reduce pain as well.. Why they occur is mysterious and they are only one of the many complicated things related to the body-brain connection. In fact, our own bodies hold many unsolved mysteries.


How did life on earth appear? Science suggests that life when the planet was
favourable for habitation.
Yet did microscopic organisms just pop out of nowhere? One hypothesis is
panspermia, which suggests that ‘seeds of life’ exist everywhere around the universe, and that life on earth started when these ‘seeds’ came here, probably by a meteor. It also suggests that these seeds are taken to other habitable places in the universe. Something similar to this is exo-genesis. It suggests that life was brought to earth those billions of years ago, however it does not say that life is also taken to other habitable places. Some people believe aliens brought life to our planet, as suggested by the theories of
Erich Von Daniken. Although some are sceptical as to how life could exist in space and get carried to other planets, there is substantial evidence that certain life forms, like spores and certain types of bacteria can actually exist in space, perhaps in a dormant


*Mass extinctions*

From the death of the dinosaurs, to the disappearance of the creatures in
the Permian Era, mass extinctions are occurring even now.
Sometimes, the cause is clear. We are destroying the biosphere and the atmosphere, and scientists predict that in the next 100 years,50% of all species will become extinct. But sometimes, the real reason is unclear. It may have been due to competition from other species,dramatic climate changes, or the impacts from an asteroid/meteor (the last one being quite a popular one). Yet some questions remain unanswered. Why was it that some species died out, and others survived, some to this day (famous example: the coelacanth).
During the extinction of the dinosaurs, crocodiles and turtles were around,
but they survived, even to this day, while the dinosaurs, the pterosaurs, the marine reptiles and others died out. While some people believe that those species were unable to cope with the (possibly) new surroundings, others are not convinced. To this day, they are a mystery, and without a machine, we may never know. Other popular theories include:- flood basalt events,
smaller asteroid showers, global warming/cooling, sea level drops.


* Zombies in Haiti*

Haitan vodou, part of their religious practices, has long been considered to
be evil. And the base of this suspicion is that the vodou is used to create
Not zombies as in Hollywood zombies. Not animated brain ****ing zombies.
Zombies like, sub-conscious humans who do everything they are told. Wade
Davis, a Canadian ethno-biologist, uncovered a lot of info on this. Apparently, it originated in Africa, and two drugs (or poisons) are inserted into the victim’s bloodstream.
One a deathlike trance, and one makes the victim seem like they have no
brain of their own, thus rendering them able to do whatever they are told.
3 important facts Davis found was:- zombification is not random, it is not
common, and it is used as a kind of severe punishment,most likely to those that have broken the sacred vodou laws



Ever learned something without really understanding how you know it? That’s intuition. Sometimes called a sixth sense or gut feelings,intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without a clear source or without reasoning it. Some people claim that they get a feeling that someone is watching them, and they look around and find that somebody is, or was, watching them. Or a police officer may look at some suspects for a crime and somehow know which one is guilty, and later discover they were right.
Though some people say that these things are all coincidences, others believe that the human brain has a special ability to get knowledge around them without conscious realization. It is another mystery of the human mind



What makes this so special? The fact that the Olympics are taking place in
London? No. The ancient Maya civilization, from Central America, had a special calendar that was mind-blowingly accurate. And it predicted that the end of the human life cycle was on December 21st, 2012, the winter solstice. The Mayans were also good at math and astrology(they accurately predicted an eclipse that occurred hundred of years later). So people are
guessing that they were right about the end of the world thing, too. Something else that has gotten scientists curious is that there are
some major astronomical things happening in 2012.
Apart from the occasional eclipse and comet, the entire solar system is
supposed to pass through the center of our galaxy, something that happens only once every 26,000 years. And, there’s a risk of
our planet’s poles switching.
Sounds crazy, but scientists say this has already happened. Also, the Indian
calendar, the Kali Yuga, ends at about the same time.
Coincidence? I think not


* Life on exoplanets*

Exoplanets, short for extra-solar planets, are planets beyond the solar
system. There are 277 recorded exoplanets to date.
However, there is no confirmation that there is life on any of them, or in
the universe, for that matter. However, it is still a mystery.
This is different from UFOs as UFO are unidentified flying objects, meaning
something unidentified that has been seen on earth.
Some likely candidates for supporting life are Gliese 581 d and HD 189733 b,
the latter supposedly containing water vapour and organic matter.
There are also questions as to whether there are moons orbiting these
planets. Some people believe that there may even be life in our solar system that we don’t know of. Some moons, like Neptune’s Triton or Saturn’s Europa, may possible have, or had, life, and there is substantial evidence that water once flowed through Mars.
Still, no one knows.


*Nazca Lines*

Etched into the earth on the Nazca Plains in Peru are giant symbols drawn
perfectly straight. Some are hundreds of metres long.
They look as if they were drawn by some giant hand two thousand years ago.
And the strange thing is, they can only be seen from the air.
So how did the ancient Nazcans draw them? Researchers say they could have created hot air balloon or kites to fly and view their work.
Indeed, an experiment was carried out and it proved that the Nazcans could
have made a working balloon. The symbols themselves are of animals
and plants. Yet some are long strips of land without any direct meaning.. A
writer named Erich Von Daniken believed that these were landing strips for alien spacecraft, and that aliens could have drawn them. They may also be for contacting these aliens. Maria Reiche, an astronomer, says that these lines may be used as a calendar, or to keep track of the stars and planets. There is a monkey drawing that has a coiled tail that looks similar to the orbital lines of our solar system. There are even more obscure theories that suggest that there were giant people 2,000 years ago. Yet, they are still a mystery.


*Megalithic structures*

A megalithic structure is some thing big made of rock. It could be a statue,
or just some rocks strewn around in a pattern.
The truly mysterious thing about the ancients is, how were they able to
create such enormous things? They did not have the technology needed to efficiently make them. Stonehenge is a good example.. A bigger one
is the Great Pyramid in Giza, or the pyramids themselves.
Sometimes, even their purpose is unclear (Stonehenge) , while other times,
the structures in question are mysterious and seemingly supernatural (the pyramids). A megalith (I know, sounds like something from Di-Gata Defenders), a giant rock, is used most of the time,especially in the case of Stonehenge and the Carnac stones. Still, there are a few megalithic structures that are not mysterious (like Great Zimbabwe), but mostly it seems impossible that the ancients made these things themselves. Now, many would like to think aliens helped them. Yet even scientists say queerer things. They suggest that there may have been a lost ancient civilization that was extremely advanced, and they may have given later civilizations the knowledge to build such things. Yet there is no substantial evidence of either.. Other examples: Easter Island Heads, Pyramid of the Sun (in Mesoamerica) ,other pyramids in central and south America, Colossus of Rhodes.


*Creation of the Universe*

The universe is vast and unknown. It holds many mysteries. And possibly the
biggest mystery is how the universe was created.
Scientists have suggested that there was a massive explosion billions of
years ago called The Big Bang. That theory is now generally accepted,
and scientists are looking for trails of energy left behind from the colossal explosion that created a trillion stars. Yet there is no absolute proof. But the creation of the universe is something too big to happen so simply. Religious folks will say God/Allah/Vishnu created the universe. But scientists will say that there was a Big Bang, and that there is energy from the bang moving through the universe, and they are trying to locate the epicentre. So, the debate continues. Religion vs. Science is probably the biggest conflict in the
world. But what is religion? There are so many different types.
And the difference between the Christian religion and Greek mythology? No
one believes in Greek mythology anymore. But what is science?
And math? Things created by man. So before saying that man created God and science proves it, people should realize man created science as well. And maybe, the universe is just something made up
in our minds.

    the geek in me loves this blog…

    way way cool!

      thanks shraddha…
      i try to spice up my blog with stuff..
      thanks for the support

  2. Hey! Interesting!!
    I’ve read this in a couple of places.
    Waiting to c what happens in 2012 – Dec 21

  3. Very interesting. I love this blog b/c it is talking about all these things that are coming. Let’s start with the mass extinction hypothesis. Yes, 12500 years ago there was the great flood, caused by a giant dead planet that crosses our solar system (a.k.a. Nibiru or Planet X). NASA knows very well about this happening but they can’t cause panic. This planet is the real cause of global warming, which begun the moment this planet entered our solar system again and it will pass us in 2012 causing the sun to emit it’s strongest solar flare in 2012 as well as an orchestra of catastrophic events like earthquakes, floods and vulcanic eruptions. The governments of the world know about the bad condition of our atmosphere and they tried different things like the HARP project or even considered to shoot reflecting particles into our stratosphere to deflect sonic rays, but these were no useful solutions. So now they are building shelters, underground bunkers and cities, what is just a waste of energy and time. The passing of the planet is just one side of the medal (learn more at

  4. The other, very important thing that will happen towards the end of 2012, beginning of 2013 is the resetting of the cosmic clock. The moment earth leaves the dark riff that we are still in, our planet will be aligned with the center of the galaxy and it will be showered with energy that flows from the center of the Milky-way that is 50% stronger than the energy that we are experiencing now. This happens every 25.000 years and it will be the beginning of a new, a higher consciousness. A consciousness that will help mankind to become the way we were supposed to be, living in peace and in harmony. A consciousness that is not about gathering as much material goods as possible but about becoming the best and the most that you could become (to learn more about this go

  5. How beautifully it all comes together. The next thing is the alien hypothesis. Yes, they’ve been here to help and they will return, once we will live in peace with each other and open minded enough to respect different beings (who are in fact not that different, we share DNA and are all children of God, religion is a human approach to try to understand a higher being and it is no real authority. Ask you self, you know in your heart what the truth is) 6500 they build with our cooperation (no slavery, voluntary workers from all over the world) the pyramids in Giza, Egypt. The Great Pyramid on the Giza Plateau is standing exactly on the center of the axis of the earth and is aligned with the Great Pyramid on mars in Cydonia. It is a giant generator that, once activated will power the geo-mantic energy grid that will enforces earths atmosphere and spare us form the consequences of the passage of planet X with it’s planetoids and asteroids that it’s pulling in it’s long tail along. This protective system, the Great Pyramid of Giza is also a sign called the “Sign of Time”. These so called “Aliens” were send by God to help us, but we have to take this serious and accept the help instead of being close minded and turning everything down that is outside of our limited view of the world and of the cosmos. It is also a chance for us to proof that we are conscious enough to talk and to work with us. The Egyptian Government knows and they are looking into everything already. The most work was done by a Lucyna Lobos Brown and her husband Bill Brown who started “Project-Cheops” or “Mission Pharaoh”. The head of the Egyptian Council of Antiquities, Dr Zahi Hawass was blocking the whole project were ever he could, calling it all nonsense and the people working on this project “Pyramidiots”. Now, that the Egyptian authorities are getting involved supporting the mission it is called “The Khufu Project”, after 10 years of struggle with the authorities and petitions that have been signed by thousands all over the world (to learn more about this go

  6. The Great Pyramid of Giza (build 6500 years ago=4500 b.C., not 4500 years ago=2500 b.C.) was build by visitors who were send by God to spare us from cataclysmic events caused by planet-x that is passing us every 12.500 years in 2012. It is a call to a higher consciousness, a call to free our minds from religious indoctrination and old political power structures. Besides of that, the other very important event towards the end of 2012, beginning of 2013, is the resetting of the cosmic clock that occurs every 25.000 years. An event that will be a great change for whole mankind. People laugh or just had enough of the topic of 2012, yet-it is truly a time of great change. Not the end of the world, but definitely the end of time as we know it. So be blessed and stay open minded, ~One~
