10 Unusual Things and Beliefs that Science Cannot Explain

1. Aliens

While conspiracy theories and UFO sightings abound, we don’t have any verified proof that other lifeforms exist in the space beyond our own planet. Still, many people firmly believe that there is a life on other planets, or that life did exist at some point in the past. From video claims of inexplicable objects in the sky, to personal testimonials from people who say they’ve been taken into a spacecraft, we want to believe that there is more to life than what is on our own planet even if it has yet to be scientifically proven as fact.

2. Ghosts

Anyone who claims to have seen a ghost might say that there is proof of spirit life, but skeptics would argue that any ghostly sighting can be explained away by lighting tricks or other logical reasons. At the end of the day, there may never be indisputable, tangible proof of ghosts. While ghost hunters have electronic tools meant to measure ghost activity, results are open to interpretation. Yet, we believe in ghostly encounters and phenomenon – that when things go bump in the night or move suddenly, a ghost can be the cause.

3. Lightning Bolts 

We've come a long way since the days of believing that lightning bolts were the work of angry gods, but some natural events continue to mystify us — including black holes, supernovas, the Marfa lights, the Bermuda Triangle and the Taos Hum. Despite scientists' best efforts, there are many myths and legends surrounding unexplained natural events.

4. Astrology

The notion of astrology is not a new one. ome People are so involved in this astrology that they take all their decesion accounding to it. Without any real proof that the way the planets and stars are aligned will actually shape a person, we believe that if we are born under a certain zodiac sign we are bound to a particular disposition and set of skills. Daily horoscopes and astrological charts have become a guiding tool for many people, who truly think that one’s birth date determines her fate and can help her make day-to-day decisions.

5. The Tunguska event 

In June 1908, a ball of fire exploded in a remote area of Russia, shaking the ground and instantly flattening 770 square miles of forest Known as the Tunguska event because of its close proximity to a river of the same name, the blast reached 15 megatons of energy, about a thousand times more powerful than the Hiroshima bomb. Recent research suggests that a meteor is to blame, as evidenced by a nearby lake that some scientists believe was created by the meteor’s impact. However, other scientists believe the lake was there before the event. What is certain is that the event was the most powerful natural explosion in recent history.

6. Intuition

Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without inference and/or the use of reason.Intuition provides us with beliefs that we cannot justify in every case. For this reason, it has been the subject of study in psychology, as well as a topic of interest in the supernatural. The "right brain" is popularly associated with intuitive processes such as aesthetic abilities.

we believe that sometimes a sixth sense provides us silent guidance. Intuition can tell us when to distrust someone, end a marriage, avoid a certain street or steer us in any number of directions. With seemingly no logical explanation, our intuition helps us make decisions with confidence and allows us feel like we are making a decision based on a trusted power that is bigger than ourselves. We give intuition credit for showing us which way to go when we hit a fork in the road.

7. God

It is the best way to explain this things.The biggest faith faith that humans take is believing that a higher power, or God, exists and somehow sees and guides our life. From thinking that an inner prayer is heard, to the belief that we will come face to face with a higher power after death, we think that God is not only real but everywhere. By definition, God cannot be proven through empirical evidence, and yet the notion of a higher power is something that ties us to some of the earliest people and each other.

8. Animal migration

Many animals migrate thousands of miles of land and sea, all without the use of a GPS device. The question arises that How do animals take these amazing journeys without getting lost? No one really knows, though there are many theories. According to an article in The Independent that focused on pigeon migration, some believe thta the birds navigate the Earth using visual landmarks or their sense of smell to determine their location. More bizarre-sounding theories include the concept that pigeons use magnetism to determine if they’re north or south of home, another is that the pigeons use morphic resonance, a theory by Rupert Sheldrake, to refer to what he calls the "the basis of memory in nature .. the idea of mysterious telepathy-type interconnections between organisms and of collective memories within species."

9. The Voynich Manuscript

The Mystery:
The Voynich manuscript is an ancient book that has thwarted all attempts at deciphering its contents. And it's not like some idiot just scribbled a bunch of nonsense on paper and went, "Figure THIS out, fuckwads." It is actually an organized book with a consistent script, discernible organization and detailed illustrations.
It appears to be a real language just one that nobody has seen before. And it really does appear to mean something. But nobody knows what.

There is not even a consensus on who wrote it or even when it was written.

Some say it's an unbreakable code that requires a key to solve. Some say it's a hoax, and a damned fine one if we do say ourselves. Some say it's glossolalia, which is the fine art of speaking or writing something you don't understand but that is being channeled to you by God or aliens or whatever

10. Earthquake lights

An earthquake light is an unusual luminous aerial phenomenon that reportedly appears in the sky at or near areas of tectonic stress, seismic activity, or volcanic eruptions. Once commonly challenged, it was not until photographs were taken during the Matsushiro earthquake swarm in Nagano, Japan (which occurred from 1965 through 1967) that the seismology community acknowledged their occurrence.

White or Bluish flashes are mostly seen that precede large earthquakes and last for several seconds. They have been reported infrequently for hundreds of years, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It wasn't until the 1960s, when people took pictures of this phenomenon during the Matsushiro earthquakes, that the scientific community started to take it seriously. Since then, scientists have created many theories for the origin of the lights, involving everything from piezoelectricity and frictional heating to phosphine gas emissions and electrokinetics. But most recently scientists suggested that the lights are caused by pre-earthquake elements that awaken the natural electrical charge of rocks, causing them to sparkle and glow.
