Ancient mysteries continue to be a popular subject among scientists, medical professionals, a large number of other specialists, and people in general.
The wisdom that was held by those that came before us puzzles the great minds of today. Could it be possible that our ancestors did not want us to understand the wisdom that they held, or is it that our future is predetermined by the unsolved mysteries of the past and how we, as the people of today, interpret the clues that were left for us by these individuals of the past?
It is essential to keep the ancient mysteries of the past alive today. J.R.R Tolkien was quoted in saying: "History becomes legend. Legend becomes myth. And then there are none left who truly remember".
In order for us, and those that come after us to continue seeking answers to the unsolved mysteries of the past, we must keep them alive. We must continue to share the stories with those around us, and urge those individuals to continue sharing those stories. It does not matter if the stories are about the Great Pyramid of Giza
, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon
, the Temple of Artemis
, the Lighthouse of Alexandria
, or the Colossus of Rhodes
, each of these stories are part of civilization's progression.
While there are many stories that reflect the progression of civilization, there are also many ancient mysteries that directly relate to our future. An example of this is the popular 2012 doomsday prophecy given to us by the ancient Mayans. This civilization believed that the end of the world as humanity knows it would cease to exist on the 21st day of December in the year 2012. Throughout this website, we will reveal prophecies like the 2012 doomsday one as well as others. Ancient mysteries do not simply affect humanity’s past, but also humanity’s future.
