Every time I hear people talking about UFOs, cryptids, angels, conspiracies, or other nonsense to try and explain the world around us, it breaks my heart. There is a world of incredible mysteries around us, all of which are amazing. Science and history just add to wonder and weirdness of the world around us. These 17 mysteries are all very real, very wonderful, and don't need the supernatural to try and figure them out.
The Oak Island Money Pit is almost certainly not what everyone wants it to be, and after hundreds of years of people excavating it, they're still certain that a treasure remains at the bottom. This immense shaft going into the earth was discovered in the late 1700s, and the people digging down it allegedly found wooden platforms regularly, and a stone plate with a cypher that was said to state there was a treasure even lower. Unfortunately, the stone disappeared, and centuries of digging haven't found anything, and destroyed any evidence that it was man made to begin with. The promise of two million pounds, though? That's enough to keep people going with their pickaxes, even through cave-ins and floodings.
