Lost Cities, Shipwrecks, and Skeletons
The oceans, seas, and lakes of the world are incredibly mysterious to even the most learned of scientists; they’re so dark and deep that we simply cannot reach most depths to see what’s down there. Somehow, we get lucky enough (once in a while) to catch a glimpse of an undiscovered sea creature or bring up some strange object that has never been seen by a human, but they bring more questions than answers. These discoveries have furthered our knowledge of the oceans, yet not all can be explained.
Baltic Sea Anomaly
A 2011 diving expedition led by Ocean X came across a 60-meter wide disk with strange markings lying on the bottom of the Baltic Sea floor. Conspiracy theorists claimed that it had to be a part of an extraterrestrial ship because of how it looked and because it was believed to be about 20,000 years old, but scientists said it’s probably just a glacial deposit.
Edgar Cayce predicted in 1938 that a road would be found underwater that would lead to the lost city of Atlantis, saying, “A portion of the temples may yet be discovered under the slime of ages and sea water near Bimini … Expect it in ’68 or ’69 – not so far away.”
In 1968, massive stones were spotted overhead near the island of Bimini that are precisely laid out in a linear fashion. Though scientists said it’s just a natural rock formation, they are baffled by them.
The Not-So-Silent Seas
When you’re underwater, hearing can be quite fascinating. Scientists have been listening to sounds of the ocean for the past few decades, and they’ve stumbled upon some strange noises that simply cannot be explained. Even though they can pinpoint the locations of the strange noises they hear, they can’t figure out what or who could have made them.
