11 Unsolved Mysteries of America!

  1. Moon Landing:

For you, this might not be a mystery. Why is this thing even in the list of secrets? Because we think it is not what the entire world thinks it is. Or, maybe just for fun, but at least let’s go through the facts presented below!

We all know Neil Armstrong took his first step on the moon on the 20th of July 1669. Some pictures convey his walk on the lunar surface. But, was that walk indeed on the lunar surface? What else proves that? Many of us claim this to be simply a dramatic display of the event which never happened in reality. Neil Armstrong did not step on the actual moon is what most people support.

Okay, so what is the concept behind? The stage has to be made up. Well, the entire thing was perfectly staged. It has to be shot in the Hollywood studio room. The decoration or fake stage has to be prepared by Stanley Kubrick, the director who had already wowed the audience a year back with the realistic ‘Outer Space’ epic 2001 called A Space Odyssey. Does not this sound so real?

There can be some general queries from the picture itself. Look at the position of the well-placed flag. Then the word C., of course, NASA will never accept the fact, and the whole United States will refuse the hoax of the moon landing. Even Aldrin hit a man for bringing this conspiracy theory out, but still, one can think about it.

It has to be one of the mysteries, of course.

Bigfoot, as defined, is a hairy character that is lumbering and looks like an ape, but massive in size like a beast.

Only the vast prints were seen in North America, and no other sights were there. The tales of Bigfoot are popular bedtime stories, and some kids’ favorite character is Bigfoot.

The gender not identified, either he or she, the Bigfoot likes Pacific Northwest though has never been caught on camera. Despite having no proof of its existence, there are so many hoaxes even in 2015 when Rick Dyer, the self-claimed Bigfoot hunter, shot and killed the hairy giant. The man also decided to take a tour with the dead body of the so-called Bigfoot that he had killed. Rick Dyer was famous for his courage and ability to kill the most popular unseen giant back then.

But well, later on, the most profound secret was out. The so-called dead body of the Bigfoot was a prop that was made out of camel hair, foam, and latex. Well, the question of the decade is, if there is such creature like Bigfoot, why has not anyone ever encountered or shot him with a camera yet? And, even if there is such a creature out there that is supposedly harmless with no signs of kills, then why are people so worried about one? Let that creature hover around making the giant steps, and why doesn’t one go to see a unique animal instead of a hairy ape? Maybe we shall go check out a penguin?
