Science Disproving Myths & Legends. Are We Losing Something?

AeschylusAeschylus

I watched a show last night on discovery where they were able to disprove all the myths around the Bermuda Triangle to all but the "die hards"

When I was watching I was fasinated how modern science was able to show what happened, then I thought perhaps it is a little sad?

There are simply no myths left, are there?

I watched a show last year where the deep scanned the whole of the Loch Ness to dis prove that.

The Shroud of Turin was also busted recently when they were allowed to carbon date it..

Obviously there is the Bible, but will leave that there, before the religious crowd come out..

clairvoyants who have agreed to be tested have all failed, so much so a 1 million prize tag remains unclaimed.

Lets have a list of Myths that have not been solved. I appreciate there will always be people who dont accept the science.

    No matter how ridiculous the myth or how conclusive the contrary evidence there will always be naive, deluded and weak minded people ready to believe it.

    Religion being the prime example.

    Arrogant ass


    I wouldn't say arrogant, however it is surprisingly pert.

    Scientists read millions of books and realise just how little they know and strive to learn more

    Religious nut reads one book and think they know everything.

    What's the myth with Bermuda Triangle? Isn't it true that stuff sinks there and it's due to the air being release underwater? Or is that the myth?

    I know what you mean. On the one hand, I actually like the idea of solving mysteries, especially within my lifetime. Things like the Turin Shroud for example, it's like a nice conclusion to the story, and I like conclusions to my tories.

    On the other though, there still are lots of mysteries out there, and some of them are still live, too. The main source of mystery these days is conspiracy theory, of which there are plenty kicking about. Mad oddities do surface some times, too. The spiral in the sky above somewhere in Scandinavia is one that springs to mind, and there have been various accounts of unrecognisable monsters washing up dead on various beaches. There's also still an active and interesting mystery surrounding the paranormal, in terms of psychic ability and the collective unconcious, too.

    Hit youtube. Search for mysteries. There are tonnes of paths to follow in there that can take you through some crazy alternative solutions and mysteries. I was watching a feature on the hollow earth theory yesterday, and that's something I'd definitely recommend you search for.

    Milk or plain chocolate Jaffa Cakes?

    Hang on... is this a trick?... There is a myth that they are not cakes, but they are biscuits.

    @fanpages I never thought about it like that, a myth within a myth. Hmm (they are milk chocolate though) I'll need to work this out.

    Cakes go hard when they're off, biscuits go soft.

    Jaffa Cakes go hard, therefore they are cakes. VAT is payable on chocolate covered biscuits but not chocolate covered cakes, so a lucky escape for Jaffa there!

    My most best unsolved mystery that i hope they will solve but the time i pass away.

    The Oak Island Money
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oak_Island

    What is buried they no one know many say it is William Shakespeare's lost works.Some say the Chalice is there and others say it was the treasure of captain Kidd.One thing we all know is that whoever built it was extremely clever that even todays technology can't retrieve whats down there.

    I'm religious but one of the biggest criticisms of faith groups has long been their self righteous, my way or the highway approach. Nice to see therefore you indulge in just the same kind of conduct by telling people what they should or shouldn't believe in. If it's not someone preaching about what I should believe in, it's someone preaching about what I shouldn't.

    I'd never tell anyone what they should and shouldn't believe, that's their own business. All I'm saying is you would have to be a complete and utter **** idiot to believe it.

    Cheesecake goes soft, but the biscuit base goes hard.

    Myths are confusing.

    Regarding mysteries, there are still PLENTY of undiscovered things out there. We've not even explored the deep sea yet. And then there's space. Planets, moons, suns, solar systems and galaxies.

    All the things you mentioned, Bermuda, Turin, Nessie, Bigfoot etc are silly since they are mostly fakes and forgeries based on folklore and old wives tales, which in my opinion makes them dull, pointless and a massive waste of time. Of course I would love to find that nessie is real, but with zero evidence to support it thus far I'm not wasting any more time getting my hopes up. The truth and the path to find it is a billion times more fascinating.
