If Science Is So Advanced Why Can’t It Explain These Mysteries?


Science holds the answers to many of the world's mysteries. The Earth is round, gravity keeps our feet on the ground, and every four years the U.S. will elect a president that near 50% of the population despises. So with all of these well-accepted facts and phenomena, why do some of the most basic behaviors of nature, animal, and human behavior remain unexplained? It turns out that even the smartest minds in the scientific community still have more questions than answers when it comes to certain topics. Read on to uncover the answers to some of the greatest unsolved scientific mysteries of the modern world!

Cows Can Tell Direction Only When They Are Eating

Just Why Do We Need Sleep Anyways?

Everyone knows they feel better after a good night's sleep, but as it turns out, scientists still don't know exactly why that is.

These are backed by studies involving long-term sleep deprivation and mental illness, but still, the exact reason why evades modern scientists.

UFOs Remain Unidentified

With all of modern science's access to advanced recording instruments, telescopes, cameras and high-tech imaging software you would think the mystery of UFO's would have been long solved by now. While many sightings are explained as natural occurrences, planes or weather balloons, to this day, there remains a large percentage of UFO sightings that may have other than earthly origins.

Land Mammals Evolved to Return to the Sea

Darwin may have been a pretty smart guy for developing his theory of evolution, but he still could not explain why certain mammals originated in the ocean, only to become land lovers and then returned to their watery beginnings thousands of years later. While advances in modern DNA mapping have been able to help prove the acclaimed scientist's theories, it still has no answer for what make some land beasts respond to the call of the sea.

Magnets Have North and South Poles, But Why?

As children, we all enjoyed playing with the magical devices that are magnets. Hours of entertainment could be had pushing and pulling magnets along a surface without ever touching. Furthermore, if you cut a small piece off of a magnet, the resulting portion retains these properties. While science knows some of why this occurs, it still can not explain why all magnets have north and south poles.

Psychics, Mind Reading and ESP, Oh My!

You may consider yourself a skeptic, but many people experience real like psychic events every day. Just open your local yellow pages to find a host of individuals claiming the ability to read your mind, tell your future or predict when you will marry that millionaire spouse.
