There are so many unasnswered questions that I decided to suggest it: the sun observation/eyktarstað problem, the Maine Penny, butternuts found at L’Anse aux Meadows despite butternuts never growing on Newfoundland, Ronwayana, some of the unanswered descriptions in the Sagas regarding locations and Indians, &c., &c.
I have spent a lot of time going over the Sagas, studying maps, and doing research on the location of Vínland, and it is one of the mysteries that interest me the most. There are so many wide-ranging theories where it was, and I don’t think the buildings uncovered at L’Anse aux Meadows is ‘it’, but rather a base/winter camp – possibly the Leifsbúðir of the Sagas…
Quite so. Someone could do a version where everything is ranked from far out there/silly to real, but I am just suggesting fringe theories, conspiracies and mysteries in order of how well-known they are.
The fire is alive one is quite popular, and unlike a lot of entries on the iceberg, it isn’t some obvious wordsalad or creepypasta, no matter how far out there it is.
Ideas for some more surface level entries:
Waco shooting, Shakespeare authorship, Oak Island mystery/treasure, Project MKUltra, death of Frank Olson, death of Vince Foster, human hibernation, Dyatlov Pass incident, Order of the Friars of St. Francis of Wycombe/Sir Francis Dashwood’s Hellfire Club, ‘Intelligent’/communicating trees, ASMR, chemtrails, wendigos, Planet X/Nemesis, melting glass, hollow Earth/vast caverns in the Earth’s crust, EETA 79001/Martian meteorites seeding life on Earth, Panspermia, Soviet reanimation experiments, Zionism, human echolocation, Mary Celeste crew disappearance, real British royal bloodline though George, Duke of Clarence/Michael Hastings, death/disappearance of Norse colony in Greenland, esoteric symbolism of the Cosmati Pavement in Westminster Abbey, disappearance of the Roman Legio IX Hispana beyond Hadrian’s Wall, Roman exploration of North America, Nazi base(s) in AntaPost too long.
