There are many things in our world that we know, but there are many more that we still do not understand even today.

The world is full of unknown mysteries that mankind may never solve.

Here are 10 such mysteries that remain unsolved even with all our modern technology.

Shugborough inscription
The Shugborough inscription appears on the 18th century Shepherd’s Monument in Staffordshire, England. The inscription remains unsolved, but may be a clue left by the Knights Templar about the location of the Holy Grail.


Lost city of Atlantis

The Wow signal

John Andress
Having had many eclectic experiences and expressing interest in so many varied things in life has suited my role as Editor-in-Chief of Vision Times. Being trained in the sciences, I worked in the medical field. Scuba diving was a passion, being part owner of a scuba shop, and I enjoyed diving around the world. Raising reptiles of all sorts, including poisonous snakes, was also one of my hobbies when living in the U.S. After moving to Australia in the 80s, I became an avid organic grower of tropical fruits and vegetables, which my wife and I partake of year-round, as well as many of our friends. My newest endeavor has been to become a “bikie” — an eBikie, which I do every day not only to get exercise, but also to have a break from slaving over my computer most of the day. Obviously, China is also a passion, which is something VT specializes in, so I feel very fortunate to have a role here at Vision Times.
