3unexplained phenomenon stories that science can't explain

How often have you stopped to ask yourself, "Now how did that happen?" The answer is this: Probably more times than you realize. The natural world abounds with mysteries so elusive of explanation that we are constantly in search of solutions that go beyond nature, or supernatural. True ghost stories often involve a number of these mysteries, and modern day ghost hunters struggle to find out their causes.

The following is a short list of things that these intrepid explorers have found, which modern science has not explained with satisfactory answers.

Electronic Voice Phenomenon

Ever since the late 19th century, human beings have been able to make and preserve audio recording of themselves. It wasn't long after the introduction of Thomas Edison's fantastic invention that the people became enamored with the possibility of capturing the voices of the dead. In 1936, a psychic with the truly spectacular name of Attila von Szalay set out to do just that. Thus, the quest to capture evidence of electronic voice phenomena, or EVP, had begun.

Fast-forward to the present. Modern day ghost hunters now carry sophisticated digital and analog recording devices with them on their explorations, and what they have found is truly astonishing. Amplified, filtered of ambient noise, the buzzing whispers of the dead can be heard clearly.

Interference caused by sunspots or nearby radio waves?No one can seem to come up with a satisfactory explanation for EVP.

Cold Spots

In one of the most famous haunted house stories, Shirley Jackson's magnificent, The Haunting of Hill House, the wicked house of the title is found to have a cold spot within one of the rooms.It is so frigid that the hapless scientist in the story can't even successfully measure its dimensions without his hands freezing in pain. When a thermometer is held in the space, it fails to register any difference in temperature.

Such tales are fine for fiction. Real life examples of cold spots are not as extreme as the one in Jackson's story, but they are nonetheless fascinating. One of the reasons they are so fascinating is that they most often do register on thermometers. Highly-calibrated instruments carried by ghost hunters record fluctuations in temperature that can't be ignored.

Once one disregards the possibility of cracks in the floor, poor insulation, or the likelihood that someone may have left a door or a window open, one is inevitably left to conclude that the mystery of cold spots remains just that.


Chilling stories of poltergeists almost always involve objects flung around the room by unseen hands. However, such events are rarely ever caught on film. Minute movements of objects, on the other hand, are a different story altogether. There are countless unexplained phenomena stories that describe children's toys, clothing, or other such objects with "emotional" energy moving ever so slightly over ling periods of time. Even if it's just a fraction of an inch, such a distance is capable of being measured, and therefore belongs in the category of evidence. Until science can explain this evidence naturally, we are forced to speculate on the answer. This may not be the handiwork of Carrie White from Stephen King's famous novel, but it's certainly a mystery that continues to keep experts puzzled.

Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the ultra-rational Sherlock Holmes, was himself a believer in the supernatural. Perhaps it was wishful thinking when he put these words into the mouth of his most famous character: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever is left, however improbable, must be the truth."

Today's ghost hunters are fast arriving at this very point.
