People have always found strange things throughout the world such as religious paintings that cry, but scientists were quick to find logical answers to these type of things. However, this doesn’t mean that scientists have an answer for everything. Don’t believe me? Well, then you better stick around and see the top 20 strange things that scientists can’t explain.
20. The Derinkuyu City
Derinkuyu is an underground city located in Turkey. The city extends for 200 feet and it could hold more than 20,000 people. The problem with this spooky city is that no one knows who built it, not even the best of historians!
19. Alien Messages
Yes, there have been many crop circles made by bored farmers who wanted to have a little bit of fun. Although, did you ever ask yourself who were the first ones that made crop circles? Keep in mind that the first one was spotted in 1980.
18. Firefly Flight
What many people don’t know about fireflies is that they synchronize their flights. This makes for a beautiful view for those who see them, but scientists have yet to explain how these little bugs can sync so well.
17. Strange Fireballs
There is a strange occurrence on the Mekong River in Thailand. Locals have reported that a bunch of strange fireballs start shooting up from the river towards the sky and then they quickly disappear.
16. The Taos Hum
There is a small city in Mexico known as Taos. The strange thing about this city is that a spooky low-frequency hum starts making noise in the desert air. To make things even creepier, only 2% of the locals have complained about hearing this hum.
15. Big Foot
Big Foot is such a popular myth in the US that there are even documentaries and reality shows done about finding this beast. However, no one has been able to find Big Foot despite many people reporting Big Foot sightings.
14. Gut Feeling
Do you know that weird feeling you get when you somehow know that something is not right? That is called intuition or gut feeling and scientists have yet to find an explanation for it.
13. Animal Origins
Even though scientists already have a good understanding of the animal kingdom, they still don’t know the origins of the ancestors of many animals that roam the planet today.
It is believed that cows somehow have a sense of direction because 70% of them turn their heads to north while eating and south while drinking. The cool thing about this is that cows turn to the same pole, even though they might be on a different continent.
11. The Atacama Skeleton
This strange looking skeleton was found in the Atacama Desert and many believed that it might be proof of alien life. Unfortunately, the CNN reported that the skeleton is actually human. Or is this a hoax to keep the alien secret hidden?
The Lost City of Atlantis is one of the world’s biggest mysteries waiting to be solved. Even though there is mention of this city in historical books, scientists have yet to find the city’s location and the treasures that it holds.

5. The Light

Scientists are saying that the entire universe is 27% made from dark matter. On the downside of things, they have yet to figure out what dark matter is.
