    Well, I still think the mystery of Stonehenge is one of the greatest mysteries.

    Well, I think I'll stick to history rather than Pseudo history;
    The building of stonehenge, there are lots of theories, but know one has really cracked it
    The building of the Sphinx - why - how
    The building of the Egyptian pyramids - how - like stonehenge there are lots of theories but nothing definite
    the massive carved globes in the South American rain forest - why
    The Easter Island statues - lots of theoligical theories but nothing definite

    Ancient vanished civilizations have a lot of them, including the ones already mentioned and the Central and South American cultures.
    Then there 's the more modern case of Jack the Ripper- who was he?  and what really happend in Roswell AZ?

    Easter Island ranks up there, as does Stonehenge...

    Roanoke Island is one of the more recent mysteries, though lots of theories have been proposed that may answer it...

    Of course, there's JFK and the grassy knoll for any conspiracy theorists, though I don't know if that qualifies as a mystery....lol

    Atlantis is probably the most popular mystery, as Plato's mentions lend a bit more credibility to any theories than the pure supposition of Stonehenge or other ancient monuments with no written record to support them.

    Anyways, great question JKenny! Very though provoking...

    Who truly killed JFK?

    Did FDR know about an impeding Japanese attack?

    Was Hitler really 1/8 or 1/4 Jewish?

    Why is gold so coveted and revered by so many cultures, spanning time and distance?

    What sparked civilization?  Why did homo sapiens remain "uncivilized" for the first 190,000 years of its existence?

    --- There are so many mysteries in history , but perhaps none as more baffling than:   How can American Idol still be on the air?

    Why does man keep searching for an answer to everything when he should just be enjoying what little time he has?
