9 Most MYSTERIOUS Islands On Earth!

Islands throughout the world that are shrouded in mystery! From Mexico's creepy Island of the Dolls to the Naval Base on Diego Garcia the histories of these islands are full of myths and secrecy. #9. “Island of Socotra”- Off the coast of Somalia in the Indian ocean is an island that seems as though it belongs on another planet. Socotra Island has long been theorized as a location for the biblical Garden of Eden, and just by looking at pictures of it you can see why. The island is home to several species of plants that are can’t be found anywhere else on Earth. There are the Dr. Seuss looking Adenium socotranum which have big bulbous trunks and tiny gnarly branches that sprout from their tops and bear flowers that are a marvelous shade of pink. There odd appearance makes them kind of look like giant root vegetables. Then there are the Dragon’s Blood Trees which look like perfect natural umbrellas. The have trunks that resemble that of an average tree but their thick tightly bunched branches shoot upwards and form a mushroom like crown. Socotra is also home to three geographically unique species of bird: the socotra sunbird, socotra grosbeak and socotra starling. There aren’t many other creatures that inhabit the island other than that of bats and insects and the last time it was home to man was around the year 100 A.D. Adding to the mystery, the island has been the site of dozens of shipwrecks over the years. #8. “Palmyra Atoll”- Though technically not an island but an atoll that formed from coral the mysterious nature of Palmyra Atoll cannot be ignored. Also known as Palmyra Island, the breathtakingly beautiful ringlet sits between American Samoa and Hawaii. Though it is full of lush vegetation and appears unblemished by man the island has long be the subject of superstition and folktales. There have been several cases of violent shipwrecks and mysterious disappearances of ships on and around the island. Those who have observed the island and survived to tell their tale have claimed having seen some extremely bizarre sights like that of floating lights, ghosts and sea monsters. It is also reported to be the home of an incredible amount of sharks who may have developed a distinct taste for humans. There is also the story of lost Incan treasure that may still be on the island. These tales and others which cannot be discussed do to their graphic nature have made Palmyra the stuff of legend amongst sailors and Pacific Islanders for centuries. #7. “Vulcan Island”- Vulcan Island in the Philippines isn’t necessarily an island that is shrouded in mystery but it definitely is a mindblowing locale. On the northern Philippine island of Luzon there sits a lake named Taal and in that lake there is an island called Taal Volcano, inside this island is the world’s largest crater lake and inside of this lake there sits yet another island, known as Vulcan Island. Not only is Vulcan Island one of the most fascinating of natural recursion it happens to be located on one of the most active volcanoes in the entire Pacific Ocean. Because of this fact it is incredibly dangerous to visit Vulcan Island as it has been quaking and bubbling consistently since 1991.

Evidence That Aliens HAVE Visited Earth

The world is most certainly divided on whether or not aliens have actually visited earth. It’s undeniable that there are things on earth that are very difficult to explain, and seem almost impossible to have been completed without the help of an external force of some kind. More than 40,000 Americans have insurance against alien abduction and most British, German and Americans believe in an intelligent lifeform of some sort, makes me wonder, what do you believe? Today we look at archaeological and other evidence that could lead us to believe that they have spent some time on earth at one stage or another. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 8 - Brick by Brick Tiwanacu and Puma Punku is a hugely important archeological site located in western Bolivia in South America. It forms part of a large temple complex that is part of Tiwanacu, and there are achievements on this site that dwarf the work of the Aztecs. Many of the blocks used in construction weigh as much as 400 tons and were moved 50 miles a time. The shape is another factors that leaves people puzzled, as there are no chisel marks on any of the stones, so how did they get their shape? The rocks were then fitted together perfectly and the end result is so strong, that they can withstand earthquakes. In the early 1900’s, Arthur Posnansky traveled to the site and said it was built as a giant clock. Rogue historians are convinced that aliens assisted in building this near flawless site. 7 - Ready for take-off Here’s another prominent figure who’s come out with a strange claim. Kazem Finjan, Iraq's Minister for Transport told journalists that the ancient Sumerian people built a fully functioning space base more than 7,000 years ago! The ancient Sumerian people are part of the oldest civilizations on earth, and that back then they were already heading off into space to make contact with extra-terrestrials. He also stated that they discovered Pluto, thousands of years before it was officially discovered in 1933. During his speech, Finjan stated that the aliens assisted the ancient Sumerian people in building the site using their state-of-the-art technology. Finjan was opening up an airport on that particular site, and he said it was a well-favored spot because weather conditions were always favorable for safe landings and take-offs. 6 - A huge circle of stones For a long time, many people believed Stonehenge could not have been built with human technology from 5 000 years ago, when the first giant rocks were put into place. The rocks, some weighing close to 50 tons, are placed in a perfect circular arrangement and are miles away from any rocks that were in easy access. For these reasons and others, it has been suggested the structure functioned as a landing pad for alien space craft. Now though, scientists believe that it may have been possible for humans of that era to achieve, and that the arrangement represents the solstices and assisted in astronomical observation. 5 - A rumble in the jungle Now to Southern Mexico, where an intriguing sarcophagus lid is proof of alien interaction with humans, according to alien theorists. The image is of Pacal the Great who ruled the Mayan people during the 7th century. It would seem he could well be on a platform in a spacecraft, with hands of controls and an oxygen tube in his month. 4 - Balls of stone Stone balls of sizes ranging from a few inches to several feet in diameter have been discovered in Costa Rica. Once again this had alien theorists in a flutter, but is believed these were made by hands centuries ago. 3 - Let’s have a ball Let’s take a trip to Ball Island, a rock formation that closely resembles a pyramid, out in the middle of the Tasman sea between Australia and New Zealand. Besides housing one of the most peculiar animals on the planet, the giant stick insect, this island has many theorists believing it was placed there by aliens. The pyramid seems too flawless to be made by nature, and it’s even thought that it might have been the home to dragons as it looks like a dragon’s claw. Mystery hunters love frequenting this island, in the hope of finding something that leads them to conclude that this was the work of aliens or home to the dragons. 2 - Stoned The massive stones at Baalbek, near Lebanon are also believed to have acted as a landing site or beacon for alien craft. Some of them weigh an estimated 750 tons, and are one mile from the quarry. Modern engineers admit it would be a huge challenge today, and yes, those are people sitting on it. Any ideas anyone? 1...

Mansions NO ONE Wants To Buy For Any Price

It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you’ll no doubt know of a mansion that’s in your town that’s been left empty for reasons that are not quite known, but speculations run high! Today we sneak into a few of those empty mansions and find out why nobody wants to buy them! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr Watch our "Evidence That Aliens HAVE Visited Earth " video here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL227eb9FSI Watch our "CRAZY Ideas That Actually Worked!" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0n2wEAiOcg Watch our UNBELIEVABLE Items Found After Tsunamis !" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNNLwdBI7Gk 7 - The Cambusnethan House, Scotland. Over in North Lanarkshire is this gorgeous castle that was completed in 1820 and built for the Lockart family. The entire castle was built to their exact requirements, right down to the family crest which is still evident over the entry into the castle and on every baluster of the staircase. The crest is an image of a lock and a heart, after their surname. There’s a legend that tells the tale of this family’s ancestors having carried the heart of Robert the Bruce, King of Scots, back from the Holy Land. Nobody has occupied this castle since 1984 since its condition has deteriorated so badly, it’s just too dangerous. 6 - Pidhirtsi Castle, Ukraine Originally built as a leisure home, this ginormous castle belonged to a high-ranking Polish military commander. It was built between 1635 and 1640 and the palace gardens were said to be breath-taking. There are also two churches on the grounds as well. During the early 20th century the palace underwent a massive restoration and the owners converted it into a museum. The Lviv Historical Museum took over the castle and it was eventually given to the Lviv Art Gallery, who are struggling with funds to renovate the castle properly. The cost to repair this building is astronomical, and throw in a few ghosts, and you have a castle that will remain unsellable for many years to come. 5 - Hampton Lillibridge House, Savannah It’s been called the most haunted house in Savannah; the entire house was moved to its current location by a local restoration expert. During reconstruction, workers witnesses a man dressed all in black staring eerily from a window. Odd noises were reported, and various ghost sightings have been reported by visitors. The house was originally on the market for $2.9-million but now the asking price is a mere $500,000 and it’s yet to be purchased! 4 - Kreischer Mansion, Staten Island Standing empty on Staten Island is this gorgeous Victorian mansion, and it’s empty because it was the scene of an actual crime and of course, it’s haunted! Ironically, the road that the house is situated on is called Arthur Kill Road, as if that wasn’t enough to steer a potential buyer far away! The home was built during the mid-1800’s and the owner, Balthasar Kreischer, had huge success with brickworks in the area. He built twin mansions for two of his son’s on top of Kreischer Hill but departed earth soon thereafter. After that, one brick factory burnt down to nothing and the blow was so great, that one son ended his everything in the one mansion. The other was destroyed during the Depression. Stories have just stuck around this house and nobody has stayed there for very long. An actual crime took place there in 2005. The caretaker was reportedly paid a great sum of money to carry out a hit, cutting the remains to pieces and burning them in the basement furnace. Suffice to say, nobody wants to buy it and it’s empty to this day. 3 - The Perkins House, West Virginia Over in Charles Town, this 6-bedroom, 6-bathroom mansion is yours for a song. The house is linked to abolitionist, John Brown as it’s here that he was executed. He was convicted of treason in 1859, and this was said to be a pivotal point in American history. The mansion is worth $1.6 million, but the dotted line is yet to be signed as the spirit of Brown is said to still haunt the property today! 2 - The Allyn Mansion, Wisconsin This mansion has been standing since 1885 and it belonged to the wealth Allyn family. The owner was found in the parlour, no longer breathing. The mansion has functioned as a nursing home, a furniture store and a bed and breakfast. The owners of the guest house tried to sell the house in 2008, but they took it off the market when they were unable to sell, despite the constant lowering of the price. Rumour has it that the ghost of the original owner still haunts the hallways. 1...

These discoveries are the kinds of stories you imagine that tales like Indiana Jones are based on, except for the fact that they all happen under the water! Wouldn’t it be amazing to attribute these finds to mermaid kingdoms, but sadly that’s not the case, they were all once bustling cities that befell terrible times that caused their underwater demise! We’re going under the surface today to figure out what happened to those once thriving places.

7 - Baiae, Bacoli, Italy…
This was the place to be seen in the years 100 BC to 500 AD, where the super-rich would spend their days in luxurious villas. It was thought to be more fashionable than Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Capri, and maybe that’s because the party was always happening there – you know, hedonistic offerings, a little corruption, the odd scandal, drinking on the beach… So, what happened? Saracens invaded the city in the 8th century, by 1500 it was abandoned and water levels slowly rose engulfing what was left of the city. The remains that survive today include ornate statues, a network of roads, beautiful marble floors and exquisite mosaics.


6 - Pavlopetri, Greece…
It’s been home to the fish for around 5,000-years, this is Pavlopetri – one of the oldest submerged cities in the world. Nicolas Flemming made this discovery in 1967 and it’s believed that earthquakes were the cause of this city being submerged for all eternity. It was a cultural hub of ancient Greece and it was an archeologist’s dream to discover – buildings, streets, tombs, courtyards and surreal artefacts. This once thriving harbor town is protected by the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.





5 - Kekova, Turkey…
It’s been called by many different names, Caravola, Dolichiste and Kakava, but they all refer to the same spot, and it’s this small island in Turkey where you can still see the sunken remains of Dolchiste. This ancient town was the victim of an earthquake sometime in the 2nd century, but rebuilt during the Byzantine period. Residents were subjected to Arab invasions, so it was eventually abandoned. Swimming used to be allowed in the area, but people were stealing pieces of the city left behind, and that was quickly banned. Turkey has applied to have the area protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but they are still waiting for confirmation.

4 - Atlit Yam, Israel…
Archaeologist Ehud Galili had the best day of his life back in 1984 when he discovered Atlit Yam, considered the earliest evidence of agro-pastoral-marine subsistence system on the Levantine coast. It’s old – between 8,900 and 8,300-years old - and lies submerged below 25-40-feet of water. It spans across 10-acres and discoveries have been plentiful, including houses, hearth places, a well, burial areas and the Crème de la crème, two skeletons – a woman a small child – showing the earliest case of tuberculosis that we know of!

3 - Thonis-Heracleion, Egypt…
The Greeks called it Heracleion and the ancient Egyptians called it Thonis – together they form Thonis-Heracleion. This was one of the most important port cities in the Med, and it’s been lying underwater for 1,200-years and has a load of secrets it can’t wait to share! This area used to be the official port-of-entry for Egypt, and is now roughly 4-miles from the current coastline! The water has preserved many of the artefacts very well, and divers are bringing up a vast array of treasures, from anchors, coins, pieces of shipwrecks, tablets bearing Greek and Egyptian inscriptions, sculptures and statues of more than 16-feet! The shipwrecks have puzzled researchers, as it has the highest number of shipwrecks found in one place, totaling 64. The exact cause of the city sinking is unknown, but it’ thought to have been because of an earthquake combined with unstable clay and sand foundations. The discovery can be attributed to Dr Franck Goddio who was looking for sunken French fighting vessels.


2 - Graun and Reschen, South Tyrol, Italy…
A little like Lion City we mentioned earlier, Graun and Reschen were flooded on purpose. The towns were torn down before any water touched the surface, and despite protests by civilians, the need for power … and I mean power to run households with -won. 163 houses were demolished and all that you can see now is the bell tower of Graun’s 14th-century church. Diving in the area won’t reap too many exciting finds, but what will totally make up for it is if you visit the area in winter when the lake freezes over and you can take a walk right up to the tower for the perfect photo opportunity.
