This article is all about the most intriguing mysteries that have baffled mankind. This list of top 10 most intriguing unsolved mysteries continue to astound and defy logical explanation.
1. Shroud of Turin
The shroud of Turin is the mysterious linen cloth that bears the image of an unknown man who seems to have died by crucifixion. Catholics believed that this was the same cloth used as Jesus Christ’s burial shroud. Man has not been able to explain how the imprint was created and no one has successfully replicated the image.
2. Mary Celeste
Mary Celeste was formally launched in 1860 in Nova Scotia. It was originally named Amazon. It was later renamed as Mary Celeste after it was purchased in a salvage auction in New York and extensive repairs were completed. The ship with its captain, his family and his crew of eight mysteriously disappeared after departing New York in November of 1872.
3. The ‘Taos Hum’
This sound of mysterious origins is described as a low-pitched din that is normally heard in various parts of the world, specifically in Northern Europe, the UK and the USA. It somewhat resembles the sound of diesel engine. What is intriguing about this phenomenon is that VLF antennae and high sensitive microphones cannot detect it.
4. Black Dahlia
In 1947, the gruesome murder of Elizabeth Short was perpetrated and his body was cut in two separate pieces. Newspaper reports later referred to her as the “Black Dahlia.” There were many rumors and speculations that came out after her murder and investigations failed to pinpoint the killer and solve the crime.
5. Comte de Saint Germain
Comte de Saint Germain was a mysterious man whose origin was clouded with mystery and whose disappearance remains baffling up to this time. Since his reported death, there were a number of occult groups that used him as their model or even as their supreme deity. To correct wrong notions about the Count, the Roman Catholic has never considered him a saint and the word “st.” used before his name is in referral to his alleged domicile.
