Simon that is one hell of a beard. I started growing a beard at the age of 16 and was only one of three guys in my high school who never got ID-ed when buying beer and my beard isn't as full and rich as yours. You should be proud.

"We know this person existed because people talked about them between a few centuries a over 2600 years ago" Yeah I'm gonna have to call B.S. bro. That's not proof of existence. There are plenty of famous historical figures that never actually existed but people think they did just because they are in stories.

Genghis Khan didn't want his body to be desecrated by his enemies after he died, so they hid his final resting place intentionally. It's never going to be found because he was just buried on a hill in a nondescript grave - no markers, no valuables, nothing.

For the bronze age, I would like to suggest taking the Exodus account seriously, which kind of destroyed/crippled the Egyptian rule of that time, as well as the Canaanite tribes in the time of Joshua (40+ years later). Altogether not very interesting mysteries, in my opinion though....

The Nazcca Lines are easy to explain. A drunk person at a party just went: "hey guys lets screw with our descendants by creating these patterns in the ground!" And then the other drunk guys went: "Yeah lets do that!" while their wives went: "when will our men grow up!" Thats why they made those lines.

Herodotus, Father of history, included lots of legends, a conclusion based on the fact that we can't see it being true. I'm not saying we are wrong or right, just wondering how much of history is actually fact, but we dismiss it as legend because we can't imagine it.

I read a book about the Nazca Lines... some Author did investigating and thought that the Nazca people originally came for the jungle regions.. ie pictures of monkeys and Jaguars etc.. and that they used to take drugs a lot (Ayahuasca for example) and there are tall towers everywhere... that it has been assumed that people used to "fly" over the desert possibly whilst on drugs... either physically by using some sort of early hand gliders or just in their minds whilst on drugs, taking a mental trip over the desert...

There is no year count that is "BCE." You're still counting from the date of the birth of Christ, so let's keep it as should be. Before A.D. or BC. There is no "Common Era" for dating, but the entire planet runs on the Christian calendar.

Mystery is the results of the majority of individuals that can't find purpose in something. If and when one comes to the realization that there isn't actually any purpose and everything just is. There's no more mystery! The search for purpose is a human thing, it is the one single thing prior to greed that has caused us to go from our ways and means of our earily selves to what we are today. Why do we spend gazillion of dollar's on the research of going to Mars for instance when the most we can ever accomplish there is at best finding out that some form of biological life existed and no longer does. And perhaps we are the results of an exodus that occured when Mars became uninhabitable; A gazillion years ago. The professional state we will colonize Mars and terraform it. When it's impossible today to terraform an acre of land because of the significant cost. Perhaps not spending gazillion of dollars just to find out we originated on Mars and spending it on terraforming parts of Earth which would help us today. Would be a better investment in us. Spending gazillion of dollars on a history lesson vs spending it on issues we have deal with today, is assinine.
