Bizarre Inventions That Even Science Can’t Explain

 

Most of the people of today think that they are more superior and more advanced than the people who lived on this earth centuries ago. Nonetheless, we still have to give them credit for the artifacts they left, which baffled the prominent scientists of today. For all we know, these artifacts are only created for the sole purpose of making fun of the future generation.

 

Voynich Manuscript


Voynich Manuscript

The Manuscript of Voynich is a century-old book that made all the deciphering efforts futile. This is not some scribbles written on a piece of ancient paper. It is a very organized script with profound details, discernible connection, clear illustration, and consistent writing. It appears that the language used is a valid language; unfortunately, no one has seen this kind of language before. Some experts believe that it is meant to say something. However, no one can figure it out. Linguists, mathematicians, cryptographers, code breakers have tried, but they all failed.

 

Antikythera Mechanism

 Antikythera Mechanism

An ancient mechanism was found in a shipwreck near Greece that can be traced back to around 100 BC. It contains the structure and gears never seen in any devices for the next 1000 years. Experts are debating on the purpose of the invention. Some say that the Greeks created it, but upon further research, they uncovered that this mechanism was made from Sicily. The instrument is designed to analyze the astronomical position. The most puzzling thing about the Antikythera is that the gravity and the movement of the heavenly bodies were not yet discovered when this was created.

 

Baigong Pipe

 

In China, they discovered a series of mysterious openings in a triangle shape above the mountain. It is filled with hundreds of iron pipes, but no one can explain its origin. Some of the pipes penetrated deep into the mountain. More pipes are even running down into the lake. Most of them have uniform sizes, which means that it couldn’t be an accident of nature and have a pattern. What is more confounding is that these Baigong Pipes dates back to the time when people are still learning how to use fire.

 

Giant Stone Balls

 

Costa Rica and some of the nearby areas have discovered scattered stone balls. They are perfectly spherical and smooth. Some have a pretty small size, and their diameter is measured at only a few inches, but some are large, measuring about eight ft. in diameter. Some of the balls have been blasted by the locals in the hope of finding something valuable inside.

 

Baghdad Batteries

 Baghdad Batteries

One of the most puzzling artifacts ever found was the Baghdad Batteries in Mesopotamia. When the experts discovered the artifacts, they initially assumed that they were just regular jars. But they were astounded when they found out that it contained copper inside with some signs of corrosion. It shares the same concept as the modern battery, but no one can figure out what they are using this for.

 

They may be ancient, but these old artifacts have left the best mind that walked the surfaced of the earth perplexed and astounded. Keep posted on this article as we add more to this list.
