There are so many mysterious ancient discoveries or unexplained ancient inventions that are supposedly so baffling, that the only possible explanations that humans have come up with are aliens, time travel, the paranormal, or the Iluminati. Below you will find some mysterious ancient inventions and unexplained ancient discoveries that are baffling to scientists in the 21st century. Scientists and historians alike are baffled and very curious about a 7th-century phenomenon called the “Greek Fire,” it is apparently a very deadly proto-napalm fired from ships that would cling itself to the flesh of humans and would be practically impossible to extinguish with water. The recipe for this Greek Fire as it has been labelled was and still is a very protected family secret for the Byzantine Empire. Europeans that were involved in the crusades, on their return, could not stop talking about the weapons that the Islamic soldiers were carrying. It had them all perplexed as they described how the swords would simply cut through a handkerchief as it floated to the ground, it would bend at a 90 degree angle and then magically flex back into place without any noticeable damage or deformity. It was later dubbed Damascus Steel and the formula is still a mystery today. The Antikythera Mechanism as it is called, was discovered at the bottom of the sea in 1901. The intricate device was said to be constructed some time around the end of the second century BC. According to the research comolied in Nature, it is said to have calculated and displayed celestial information, such as and in particular, the cycles and phases of the moon and the luni-solar calendar. The Vikings made a sword that was beyond their years. The legendary swords called the “Ulfberht” swords may have been developed with techniques borrowed from those that developed the Damascus steel. The link between Islam and the Scandinavian Vikings came in 2014 when an archaeological dig in Scandinavia, discovered an Islamic inscription meaning “for/to Allah”. The giant ancient stone balls that are located in Costa Rica have scientists mystified as to their existence. The scientist have worked out how they were made but not why they were made. This mystery might stay as it it as vandals have moved and even destroyed some of the balls, thus making it almost impossible to test theories as to why they were made and placed in the position that they were in. What has been a complete mystery is the Voynich Manuscript, a hand-written and hand-drawn manuscript, which features text in an indistinguishable language and hundreds of graphics including a multitude of sketches of alien plants, strange objects, zodiac symbols and naked women most of whom appear to be pregnant or with swollen mid regions, submerged or wading in a liquid and weirdly connected with tubes and capsules as they interact with each other.
