The Bloop

by

For those coming late to the story…

Uploaded on May 30, 2009

”The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency and extremely powerful underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) several times during 1997. According to the NOAA description, it “rises rapidly in frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5,000 km. The source of the sound remains unknown…”

”Scientists determined that its wave pattern indicates it was made by an animal, and not a giant electromagnet sucking a plane out of the sky, as the creators of Lost were no doubt hoping.”

Here is the “Bloop” as it is commonly presented.

While it may not sound like anything much more than what we all do in the tub from time to time, this particular bloop was heard by listening stations thousands of miles separated.

And when you compare it to the songs of humpback whales, it is only a natural assumption that the sound was generated by a living creature.

”While the audio profile of the bloop does resemble that of a living creature, the system identified it as unknown because it was far too loud for that to have been the case: it was several times louder than the loudest known biological sound.”

”There is no animal big enough or loud enough to make that kind of noise, not by a long shot. Not a blue whale, not a howler monkey, not a startled teenage girl.”

What could have possibly caused this sound?

Many people envision something along the lines of an unknown creature many times lager than the largest whales, from this rather benign, even potentially comical looking one…

to this…

or this…

Or for the Lovecraft fans, this…

And it does not help matters much that the sound was recorded not far (in global terms) from where Cthulhu’s undersea dwelling of R’lyeh happens to be as recorded by H.P. Lovecraft, and August Derleth.

But still, pretty far. The problem is that while the recording in the video above is how you typically hear the “bloop” when presented on the various Mystery and Unexplained type of television shows, it is a sped up version. Here is how the sound actually happened in real time.

Starts at approx. 00:54

And as near as the “bloop” is to R’lyeh, it also almost as close to Antarctica, and this is a sound consistent with what is called an Icequake as reported on Wired.Com

NOAA has this to say:

NOAA is pretty sure that it wasn’t an animal, but the sound of a relatively common event — the cracking of an ice shelf as it breaks up from Antarctica. Several people have linked to the NOAA’s website over the past week excitedly claiming that the mystery of the Bloop has been “solved”, but as the information on the NOAA website was undated and without a source, Wired.co.uk spoke to NOAA and Oregon State University seismologist Robert Dziak by email to check it out. He confirmed that the Bloop really was just an icequake — and it turns out that’s kind of what they always thought it was. The theory of a giant animal making noises loud enough to be heard across the Pacific was more fantasy than science.

The curious thing is when the proper playback speed is truly found this is what it sounds like…

The Mysterious Taos Hum

Taos – A small, laid-back community in New Mexico is known for some strange reasons. People are aware of the small American town not only for its artworks, Spanish culture, and events, but also an unexplained phomenoma surrounding Taos. What is it that draws the attention of the world to this isolated desert settlement?

The answer is – The Taos Hum.

A faint humming or buzzing sound from a non-discernible source is heard in the area. Neither the local inhabitants  nor the government knows what is the exact source of the noise. It is estimated that the frequency of the hum is very low and can be around 30 to 80 Hz. Based on  surveys taken by the residents, it is strange that only 2% of the population reported having heard the sound. Even more perplexing is the individual statements they gave. Many residents describes the noise in a different way.  Some people believe it is a low hum while the others describe it as whirring sound. Townsfolk might say the sound resembles that of a mosquito buzzing, while others compared it to the sound of idling diesel truck.

The unknown sounds have been summarized in this way:

  • Sudden and abrupt start.
  • Always are a faint low and nearly inaudible.
  • There is a frequent fluctuation in the pulse of the noise.

Government officials tried to get to the bottom of the audacious huming but could not find the solution, even after attempts to improve the electrical transmission lines in the area.  The residents continued to hear the sounds. The entire investigation about the Taos hum was kept public because a part of the population believed it to be some sort of government strategy.

The speculations of the cause of the phenomenon range from the paranormal to something psychological, perhaps supernatural to even extraterrestrial. Theories include underground UFO bases, stoned hippies, secret exorcisms, restless souls and alien invasions were circulated as possibilities by the residents.

The sound was first reported in the early 1990s. Joe Mullins, a professor emeritus of engineering at the University of New Mexico, conducted several research programs to study the Taos Hum. He was the first one who thought of putting up equipment in the ‘hearers’ homes. Joe Mullins of and Horace Poteet of Sandia National Laboratories wrote the team’s final report which was published on November 22, 1995. Even after extensive testing and repeated trials, nothing of notable value was actually recorded. The only unusual detection was  increased electromagnetic levels in the area. This was later proved to be due to electrical power lines. The final conclusion of the tests suggests the it is the perception of the what people thought they may be hearing and not any specific sound. In any case, the villagers weren’t convinced with the evaluation.

If you happen to venture into Taos casually, you will assume it to be just another ordinary small town. But if you listen very closely, you may realize that the place is not so quiet after all. Even after the much scientific intervention, the true answer behind the phenomenon has not been  explained.

What do you think is the source of the elusive hum?

16 of the Strangest Unsolved Mysteries of All Time

The Incident at Dyatlov Pass

snowy-roadLAURAMPRIESTLEY/SHUTTERSTOCK

On the first night of February 1959, nine ski-hikers died mysteriously in the mountains of what is now Russia. The night of the incident, the group had set up camp on a slope, enjoyed dinner, and prepared for sleep—but something went catastrophically wrong because the group never returned.

On February 26, searchers found the hikers’ abandoned tent, which had been ripped open from the inside. Surrounding the area were footprints left by the group, some wearing socks, some wearing a single shoe, some barefoot, all of which continued to the edge of a nearby wood. That’s where the first two bodies were found, shoeless and wearing only underwear. The scene bore marks of death by hypothermia, but as medical examiners inventoried the bodies, as well as the other seven that were discovered over the months that followed, hypothermia no longer made sense. In fact, the evidence made no sense at all. One body had evidence of a blunt force trauma consistent with a brutal assault; another had third-degree burns; one had been vomiting blood; one was missing a tongue, and some of their clothing was found to be radioactive.

Theories floated include KGB-interference, drug overdose, UFO, gravity anomalies, and the Russian version of the Yeti. Recently, a documentary filmmaker presented a theory involving a terrifying but real phenomenon called “infrasound,” in which the wind interacts with the topography to create a barely audible hum that can nevertheless induce powerful feelings of nausea, panic, dread, chills, nervousness, raised heartbeat rate, and breathing difficulties. The only consensus remains that whatever happened involved an overwhelming and possibly “inhuman force.”

If you love these unsolved mysteries, here are some seriously spooky ghost stories that are guaranteed to give you the shivers.

Ghost Ship: The Mary Celeste

BoatDINO OSMIC/SHUTTERSTOCK

On December 4, 1872, a British-American ship called “the Mary Celeste” was found empty and adrift in the Atlantic. It was found to be seaworthy and with its cargo fully intact, except for a lifeboat, which it appeared had been boarded in an orderly fashion. But why? We may never know because no one on board was ever heard from again.

In November 1872, the Mary Celeste set sail from New York bound for Genoa, Italy. She was manned by Captain Benjamin Briggs and seven crew members, including Briggs’ wife and their 2-year-old daughter. Supplies on board were ample enough for six months, and luxurious—including a sewing machine and an upright piano. Commentators generally agree that to precipitate the abandonment of a seaworthy ship, some extraordinary and alarming circumstance must have arisen. However, the last entry on the ship’s daily log reveals nothing unusual, and inside the ship, all appeared to be in order.

Theories over the years have included mutiny, pirate attack, and an assault by a giant octopus or sea monster. In recent years, scientists have posed the theory that fumes from alcohol on board caused an explosion that, as a result of a scientific anomaly, did not leave behind signs of burning—but was terrifying enough that Briggs ordered everyone into the lifeboat.

The Mary Celeste mystery ranks up there with the disappearance of Amelia Earhart in terms of captivating the imagination of generations that followed, but this never before seen photo may contain clues behind Earheart’s disappearance.

Who (and where) is DB Cooper?

planeCSP/SHUTTERSTOCK

The next unsolved mystery November 24, 1971, Dan Cooper was a passenger on Northwest Airlines Flight 305, from Portland to Seattle—a 30-minute flight. He was described by passengers and flight attendants as a man in his mid-40s, wearing a dark suit, black tie with a mother-of-pearl tie-clip, and a neatly-pressed white collared shirt. He took his seat, lit a cigarette, and politely ordered a bourbon and soda, for which he paid cash. Shortly after takeoff, he handed a note to a 23-year old flight attendant, who ignored it, assuming it was just the man’s phone number.

“Miss, you’d better look at that note,” Dan Cooper told her, “I have a bomb.”

The note’s exact wording is part of the mystery, since Cooper reclaimed it after the flight attendant read it, but his demands were for $200,000 in “negotiable American currency” (worth $1 million dollars today), four parachutes, and a fuel truck standing by in Seattle to refuel the plane on arrival. The flight attendant brought the demands to the captain. The airline’s president authorized full cooperation. The other passengers had no idea what was happening, having been told that landing was delayed due to mechanical difficulties.

At 5:39 p.m., the plane landed, an airline employee delivered a cash-filled knapsack and parachutes, and Cooper allowed all passengers and two flight attendants to leave the plane. During refueling, Cooper outlined his plan to the crew: a southeasterly course toward Mexico with one further refueling stop in Nevada. Two hours later, the plane took off. When it landed in Reno, Cooper’s absence was noted. Cooper (whom the media mistakenly referred to as “DB Cooper”) was never seen or heard from again. No parachute was found, and the ransom money was never used.

In 1980, a young boy on vacation with his family in Oregon found several packets of the ransom money (identifiable by serial number), leading to an intense search of the area for Cooper or his remains. Nothing was ever found. For a time, it was speculated that Mad Men‘s (fictional) Don Draper was the man who would become Cooper. In the real world, a parachute strap was recently found at one of Cooper’s possible landing sites. Stay tuned.

What is Area 51?FenceZACHARY BYER/SHUTTERSTOCK

Area 51, in southern Nevada, is a U.S. military base the very existence of which was unconfirmed until 2013, when the CIA was obliged to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request from 2005. Based on historical evidence, it would appear that Area 51supports the development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons. Public satellite images, such as those available on Google Maps, don’t provide insight. Even those with security clearance to visit Area 51 are transported there from Las Vegas via an airline called “Janet,” whose planes are unmarked and which shrouds its windows upon descent.

The intense secrecy surrounding Area 51 has sparked rumors that the government uses it to house crashed UFOs and conduct lab tests on aliens. Don’t believe in such things? Well, then you disagree with these celebrities, all of whom are certain that UFOs are out there.

Other theories about what Area 51 is used for include: research on time travel, research on teleportation, meetings with extraterrestrials, development of a means for weather control, and activities related to a shadowy one-world government.

Where these theories come from is as much a mystery as Area 51, itself, but one thing is certain: people love a good conspiracy theory. At one point, conspiracy theorists believed the moon landing in 1969 had been faked. Hint: it wasn’t.

If you want to be spooked out by more unsolved mysteries, read these science mysteries no one has figured out.

What is the Voynich Manuscript?

bookUNIVERSAL HISTORY ARCHIVE/UIG/REX/SHUTTERSTOCK

The Voynich Manuscript is a roughly 250-page book written in an entirely unknown language/writing system. It’s been carbon-dated back to the 1400s and includes illustrations of plants that don’t resemble any known species. It’s named for the Polish book dealer who purchased it in 1912. It is believed to have been intended as a medical text. Its first confirmed owner was Georg Baresch (1585–1662), an alchemist from Prague, who discovered it “taking up space uselessly in his library.” Baresch tried to investigate the manuscript’s origins, to no avail.

The manuscript changed hands for centuries until it was purchased by Voynich, who posited that it was authored by Albertus Magnus (an alchemist) or Roger Bacon (an early scientist). However, some believe that Voynich fabricated the manuscript and its history all by himself. Various other hoaxes have been proposed over the years. Of course, that wouldn’t explain the carbon-dating of the paper and ink.

Centuries after its first (alleged) discovery, the Voynich Manuscript remains as impenetrable and inexplicable as ever. Did you know that Walt Disney left behind a cryptic note when he died?

Do the Pollock Sisters prove reincarnation?

CHAYATORN LAORATTANAVECH/SHUTTERSTOCK

Today, 24 percent of Americans believe in reincarnation. Although scientists tend to poo-poo the possibility, every once in a while, an unsolved mystery comes around that is so compelling and otherwise unexplainable that it gives even scientists pause. That is what we have in the story of the Pollack sisters.

In 1957, two young English sisters, Joanna Pollock, 11, and Jacqueline Pollock, 6, died in a tragic car accident. One year later, their mother gave birth to twins, Gillian and Jennifer. When the twins were old enough to talk, they began identifying and requesting toys that had belonged to their dead sisters, pointing out landmarks only their dead sisters would have known (such as a school they’d attended), and sometimes panicking upon seeing cars idling (“That car is coming to get us!” they reportedly shrieked on one occasion).

After the twins turned five, these incidents became less frequent, and the girls went on to lead normal lives. Still, the story of the Pollock Sisters made its way to Dr. Ian Stevenson (1918–2007), a psychologist who studied reincarnation. After studying thousands of supposed cases, Dr. Stevenson wrote a book telling of 14 he believed to have been real, including that of the Pollock Sisters.

Where are the Sodder children?

Burned-houseFOTOSR52/SHUTTERSTOCK

The next unsolved mystery is similar to the Pollocks. George and Jennie Sodder of West Virginia were forced to cope not only with the immeasurable loss of their children but also with the mysterious circumstances surrounding that loss. After the Sodder home burned to the ground on the night before Christmas in 1945, five of the ten Sodder children were still alive and accounted for. But what about the other five? From all accounts, it would seem that they had vanished into thin air.

Notice how we don’t say “vanished into smoke”? That’s because, in the ruins of the fire, zero physical evidence of the children could be found, which is virtually impossible from a scientific standpoint. But that wasn’t all that smelled off about the events of that night. Apparently George tried to save the children who he believed were still trapped inside by using his coal truck, which strangely, was inoperable; the phone lines to the house were found to have been cut; a woman claimed to have seen all five missing children peering from a passing car while the fire was in progress; and a woman at a Charleston hotel who saw the children’s photos in a newspaper said she had seen four of the five a week after the fire. “The children were accompanied by two women and two men, all of the Italian extraction,” she said in a statement. “I tried to talk to the children in a friendly manner, but the men appeared hostile… and wouldn’t allow it.”

The Sodder family theorized that the children had been kidnapped, perhaps in an attempt to extort money, perhaps to coerce George into joining the local mafia (the Sodders were Italian immigrants), or perhaps in retaliation for George’s outspoken criticism of Mussolini and Italy’s fascist government. From the 1950s until Jennie Sodder’s death in the late 1980s, the Sodder family maintained a billboard on State Route 16, with pictures of the five vanished children and offering a reward for information. The last (known) surviving Sodder child, Sylvia, 69, still doesn’t believe her siblings perished in the fire.

What really happened to young Walter Collins?

Walter-CollinsKUMPOL CHUANSAKUL/SHUTTERSTOCK

In 2008, Clint Eastwood’s film Changeling re-awakened interest in one of the most bizarre and tragic crime stories of the 1920s. Single mom Christine Collins reported her nine-year-old son, Walter, missing in March 1928 from their home in Los Angeles. Five months later, the police brought “Walter” back to Christine, except it wasn’t Walter, and Christine knew it. But the LA police dismissed Christine’s concerns, going so far as to accuse her of terrible mothering and having her committed to a mental hospital.

The real Walter Collins was never found, and over time, authorities came to believe he was one of the victims of convicted child-murderer Gordon Stewart Northcott, although Northcott’s mother offered a confession for killing Walter. Whatever happened to Walter Collins, his body was never found, and no one ever learned what really happened. Nor has it been established with any certainty why the police were so invested in covering up the boy’s disappearance that they brought a different child back to Christine and tried to convince her and the rest of the world that it was Walter.

The idea that a child could go missing is terrifying and tugs at our heartstrings, and yet it’s a bad idea to share photos of missing children on Facebook; here’s why.

The Disappearance of Paula Jean Welden

ForestELENA ELISSEEVA/SHUTTERSTOCK

Paula Jean Welden, 18, was a sophomore at Bennington College on December 1, 1946, the day she told her roommate, Elizabeth Parker, she was going for a long walk but failed to return. A search focused primarily on Vermont’s Long Trail (a 270-mile trail that cut through Vermont to the Canadian border), where local witnesses reported having seen her.

The trial yielded no clues, however, and soon, what the Bennington Banner refers to as “tantalizing and unquestionably strange leads” began to materialize. These include claims by a Massachusetts waitress that she’d served an agitated young woman matching Paula’s description. Upon learning of this particular lead, Paula’s father disappeared for 36 hours, supposedly in pursuit of the lead, but it was nevertheless a strange move that led to his becoming a prime suspect in Paula’s disappearance. Soon stories began circulating that Paula’s home life was not nearly as idyllic as her parents had told the police. Apparently, Paula had not returned home for Thanksgiving the week prior, and she may have been distraught about a disagreement with her father. For his part, Paula’s father posited a theory that Paula was distraught about a boy she liked and that perhaps the boy should have been a suspect.

Over the next decade, a local Bennington man twice bragged to friends that he knew where Paula’s body was buried. He was unable to lead the police to any body, however, let alone Paula’s, and with no evidence of a crime, no body, and no forensic clues, the case grew colder, and the theories grew stranger, including those linked to the paranormal. New England author and occult researcher Joseph Citro came up with the “Bennington Triangle” theory, which explained the disappearance as linked to a special “energy” that attracts outer space visitors, who would have taken Paula with them back to their world.

The Flannan Isles Lighthouse disappearances

lighthouseTOMASWORKS/SHUTTERSTOCK

In 1900, three keepers of the Flannan Isles Lighthouse off the west coast of Scotland disappeared under the strangest of circumstances.

The lighthouse was manned by a three-person team (Thomas Marshall, James Ducat, and Donald MacArthur), with a fourth man rotating in from shore. On Boxing Day (December 26) of 1900, the relief keeper arrived to find none of the lighthouse keepers present. The only sign that anything was amiss was an overturned chair near the kitchen table. No bodies were ever found, which has led to endless speculation. Theories range from drownings to abduction by foreign spies, a ghost ship, or a giant sea monster. Whatever happened back in December 1900 at the Flannan Isles Lighthouse, we may never know. But here are 42 water safety tips that lifeguards desperately want you to know.

The bridge at Overtoun that calls dogs to their maker

BridgeFEDOR SELIVANOV/SHUTTERSTOCK

The Overtoun Bridge, near Dumbarton, seems to call dogs to leap to their death. A perfect spot for unsolved mysteries. Since the early 1960s, some 50 canines have perished, and hundreds more have jumped but survived, reports Slate via their Atlas Obscura blog, with some returning for a second leap onto the jagged rocks 50 feet below.

The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has sent representatives to investigate but to no avail. In terms of scientific truth, it is debatable, if not incredibly unlikely that dogs are capable of forming an intent to die. Yet, something is luring dogs off that bridge, often from the very same spot, and always on sunny, dry days. Many theories have arisen, including that the bridge is haunted (this was a popular theory after a local man threw his baby son to his death from the bridge in 1994); a mink is marking the area with an almost irresistible scent; and a sound anomaly exists at the bridge that only dogs can hear.

Whatever is causing this phenomenon, dog owners would be wise to take heed and keep their dogs on leashes. Here are some unbelievable facts you probably never knew about your own dog.

The Big Grey Man

TelescopeMKASPEREK/SHUTTERSTOCK

The Big Grey Man is an inhuman creature that is said to haunt the summit and passes of the second highest peak in Scotland, Ben Macdui (in the native Scottish tongue, the creature is known as Am Fear Liath Mòr). Like the Yeti of the Himalayas and Big Foot (also known as Sasquatch) of the American Pacific Northwest, the Big Grey Man has been seen by few eyewitnesses. What makes the Big Grey Man particularly frightening is that his physical characteristics don’t resemble that of a bear, and thus sightings can’t be dismissed as bear-sightings.

Those who have seen the Big Grey Man describe it as extremely tall (over 10 feet) and human-like, with short hair, broad shoulders, and long arms. Nearly all reports of sightings include the sound of gravel crunching beneath footfalls. Scientists haven’t been able to come up with an explanation for the sightings and the accompanying sounds, although psychologists have proposed that those who have supposedly seen and heard the Big Grey Man have been in a state of physical and mental anguish brought on by exhaustion and/or isolation.

For now, the Big Grey Man remains a mystery, but if you go to Scotland, let us know if you run into the Big Grey Man.

The lost colony of Roanoke

RoanokeMIKE OLEARY/SHUTTERSTOCK

In 1587, John White led a group of people from Britain to found an English colony, settling on Roanoke Island, one of a chain of barrier islands now known as the Outer Banks of North Carolina. White left for more supplies, but on his return three years later, found the colony meticulously abandoned, with all houses and fortifications dismantled with care. Before he’d left the colony, White had instructed the colonists that if they were taken by force, they were to carve a cross into a nearby tree; but there was no cross. The only clue was the word “Croatoan,” the name of a native tribe allied with the English, which was carved into a post. White took this to mean that the colonists had moved to Croatoan Island (now known as Hatteras).

Ensuing investigations turned up claims that the colonists had been slaughtered by the Powhatan tribe, but there is no archaeological evidence of this, and a recent re-examination of the primary sources indicates that any massacre that occurred was not of this particular group of colonists, but rather a group of colonists who had arrived earlier. More enduring theories involve integration between the colonists and the Croatoans or other local tribes, but so far, no DNA evidence has positively identified anydescendants of the colony.

The Circleville letters

EnvelopeIRINA SOKOLOVSKAYA/SHUTTERSTOCK

In 1976, residents of Circleville, Ohio, began receiving hate-mail that has wreaked havoc ever since. The letters, postmarked from Columbus, were invasive and accusatory, highlighting a supposed affair between school bus driver Mary Gillespie, and the school superintendent. One letter addressed to Mary’s husband Ron, threatened his life if he didn’t put a stop to the affair. By 1977, the husband was dead, the result of a suspicious one-car crash involving shots fired. When the Sheriff ruled the death an accident, however, residents began receiving letters accusing the Sheriff of a cover-up. The letters continued throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, and even after Ron’s sister’s husband, Paul Freshour, was convicted of writing the letters and attempting to murder Mary via a booby-trap-rigged pistol.

Even with Freshour in prison, however, the letters continued. He even received one himself. In 1994, Freshour was released, and he maintained his innocence until his death in 2012. The true identity of the Circleville Letter Writer remains unknown. Some still believe it was Freshour. Others believe it was Mary, herself, and that she used the letters to concoct and support the perfect murder of her own husband.

What’s most mind-boggling about any of this is how very anonymous actual letter-writing can be, as compared with anything we do over the Internet.

The Tunguska event

ForestSOVFOTO UNIVERSAL IMAGES GROUP/REX/SHUTTERSTOCK

On the morning of June 30, 1908, 770 square miles of forest in Siberia, Russia were flattened by what would have appeared to have been an explosion, except that there were no witnesses and no other evidence. The phenomenon, known as “the Tunguska event, has been classified by scientists as the largest “impact event” (which means a recordable impact between two astronomical objects, such as an asteroid and the earth) in recorded history. Yet no “impact crater” has ever been found (which would be an important earmark of an impact event). Thus, scientists can only surmise what may have happened, which may be that an asteroid exploded over the earth, and the destruction that ensued beneath it in Siberia was the result of after-effects.

The disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370

Malaysian-airlinesAP/REX/SHUTTERSTOCKThe last of this collection of unsolved mysteries took place on March 8, 2014, while flying from Malaysia to China, a Boeing 777 carrying 239 passengers and crew members seems to have vanished into thin air. The multinational search effort, the largest in aviation history, has turned up a mere 20 pieces of aircraft debris. The Prime Minister of Malaysia has declined to comment other than to say that the aircraft disappeared over the Indian Ocean. The lack of closure has engendered multiple theories, many of which are considered “conspiracy theories,” which, according to Harvard professor, Cass Sunstein, are a natural product of “horrific and disastrous situations, because such events make people angry, fearful, and looking for a target.”

Theories include hijacking, capture by the U.S., crew suicide (it was reported that the pilot was having marital problems), a fire aboard the aircraft, vertical entry into the sea, a meteor strike, and even alien abduction.

Notwithstanding the passage of three years and the expenditure of $160 million scouring thousands of square miles of ocean, the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 and the 239 people aboard remains a mystery.

The Speed of Light is Clue Pyramids Were Built by Aliens, Researcher Claims

The pyramids of Egypt are enshrined in mystery and wonder. There are many theories as to how, and even who, may have built them.

Does the design or location of the Egyptian pyramids yield clues as to their creators?

Some researchers think ET’s did in fact leave just such information, just not in plain sight.

The experts believe the smoking gun lies in one thing, CO-ORDINATES!

The speed of light is 299,792,458 metres per second and the geographic co-ordinates for the Great Pyramid are 29.9792458°N, Dailystar.co.uk reports.

Not until 1950 were humans able to measure the speed of light, which is obviously thousands of years after the pyramids were built.

via express uk:

Travelling at the speed of light is theorised as being the only way to time travel, and believers claim the “advanced aliens” could have returned to Earth from the future to build the monuments.

YouTube researcher Manu Seyfzadeh said: “Is it possible that those who placed the great pyramid on the Giza plateau had an inkling of the speed of light to a degree of accuracy not possible without highly technical equipment?”

One of his followers said: “The speed of light in the metric system appears in the design and location of the Great Pyramid, when the decimal point is slid along the value.

“Aliens chose this location for a reason. This striking similarity is difficult to accept as a coincidence.

“There can be no doubt that it is a mathematically intelligent design associated with the stellar belief of its builders.”

Believers of the Ancient Aliens theory claim extraterrestrials also came to help build Stonehenge, in Wiltshire, in the UK, and other ancient monuments connected with the cosmos.

They have dubbed the hypothetical advanced visitors as “ancient astronauts”.

The theory suggests they were mistaken for Gods by our ancestors who depicted images of them in ancient artwork, which are now said to show pictures of aliens and flying saucers.

They supposedly visited Earth thousands of years ago, studied different tribes and were mistaken for Gods.

One conspiracy website outerworlds.com dedicates a whole section to the argument that “aliens built the pyramids.”

The theory says because two imaginary diagonal lines extend from the pyramids on either side of the Nile River delta, the early Egyptians could not have known this when building them, to be so accurate with their positioning.

With their precise measurements and alignments with celestial bodies and magnetic north, it has long been argued that our ancestors around 4,600 years ago would have been unable to physically build the ancient Pyramids of Giza.

The theory says: “The ones which were supposedly built to house the remains of dead pharaohs?

“The ones you thought were built by the Egyptians? Well, you are wrong.

“They were built by ALIENS!

“Here is what really happened: A couple of aliens, flying high enough over the Earth to be able to see where the Nile Delta’s origin is, easily saw what orientation the pyramid would need to be in order to have its diagonals lie on those two lines.”

Outerworld.com also says the great pyramid lines up almost exactly with the magnetic North Pole.

It says: “How could the Egyptians possibly have built their pyramid facing the exact magnetic North Pole without even having a compass?

“Those aliens, abundant in their knowledge and drowning in technology, came along and using their compasses, they landed on Earth and found the actual magnetic North and South Poles. Then they built the pyramids.”

However, it is a huge leap to go from a mystery of how they were built to saying it was aliens.

On the flip side, ancientaliensdebunked.com is as equally passionate about the evidence that humans could have built the pyramids when history tells us they were constructed.

In an article about the pyramids, the website says the so-called unfinished obelisk is 1,000 tones and made of granite, but was abandoned midway through because a crack developed.

It said: “This stone, because it is unfinished, gives us direct insight into how they cut and shaped granite, as well as other stones.

“After the stones had been roughly shaped using pounding stones, they would begin to polish them with grinders.

“There have been many types of stone grinders, or polishers, found in ancient Egypt.

“About 85 per cent of the stone used in the construction of the pyramids was relatively soft sandstone which was quarried right on site.”

The site says there is evidence that wooden sleds with ropes made from papyrus were used to move stones.

It added: “I at least hope that by now most of us can see that these construction techniques are well within the capability of mankind to conceive and achieve without the intervention of aliens.”
