Easter Island

Unsolved mysteries of Easter Island

Easter Island is full of mysteries. Everywhere on the island, you can see the entrances to the caves, stone ground, grooved lane leading directly into the ocean, huge statues, signs on the rocks. The main symbol of Easter Island say the bird - the man who, according to legend, and is a dungeon builder, as well as the giant moai statues of stone, which represented the island in large numbers (about 900 pieces). There are lots of assumptions and hypotheses regarding the appointment of the moai. According to one hypothesis, they were gods. According to another theory of idols - it's concrete monuments to kings, who ruled the island. There is an opinion and that this statue of the white men arrived on the island. Or maybe the purpose of these stone people and is quite different. While it is unfortunately not known. Given the origin of the stone idols, having considered the underground labyrinths, which no one is allowed in your bowels, as well as knowing the legend of the bird-people, it might be tempting to think that the planet Earth, perhaps there are other life forms. And if we take into account the scientific findings of the expedition to Easter Island, we can conclude that the world we live in today is much more interesting and more mysterious than we think.
