History is full of mysterious disappearances of people, of places and even of entire civilizations. In many cases, time has not told us what happened to the populations that have vanished en masse, all over the world. Archeologists unearth ruins and uncover clues as to the demise of ancient cultures, but the fates of many inexplicably evaporated peoples remain question marks. Here are four mysteriously vanished civilizations that keep scientists scratching their heads.

If you sacrifice virgins to moon gods, you might need to be extinct. islam is only alive because they use force on the innocent.
All others likely got mixed up in a natural disaster.
My guess would be that ancient muslims did them in.
It’s what happens when the ‘progressive’ DemocRATS start stealing elections and rise to power.
I think the first 3 were not really civilizations but groups of people who did some very interesting things.
I don’t think Crete really disappeared as much as came under the thumb of Mycenaean Greeks.
1) The Maya
2) Cahokia - The relics of an entire civilization are sitting underneath East St. Louis, Illinois. According to Gizmodo, Cahokia once housed up to 40,000 people and contained some 100 mounds made of dirt.
3) Easter Island
Thanx for adding the civs names!
I’m not saying it’s aliens...
I thought I had some evaporated people in the
I like the condensed better.
Easter Island is fairly well understood. They starved themselves when they over used the land to the point where it became useless for growing things.
My understanding of the Minoans is that they might have been wiped out by an outside force, similar to the Turks if not the Turks themselves.
See what happens when you don’t control your borders. Either that or all four of these societies came up with their own ancient versions of the Great Society, became welfare states, and eventually disintegrated.
They left out the 12,000 year old ruins in Turkey, which is fairly large.
By presidential order Barak Obama has ordered that the Statue of Liberty be destroyed because she only represents green people.
I went to high school west of St. Louis and, funny thing is, we never studied this civilization at all.
The Google satellite image shows a horseshoe lake adjacent to the burial mounds site. Maybe they were wiped out in one of the big Mississippi floods that routinely sweep through the area.
Ancient civilizations were brutal:
Mound 72 might just be the most significant archaeological discovery at the site. During an excavation, human remains were discovered: a man in his 40s experts believe might have been an important Cahokian chief.
Below his burial site experts found more than 250 other skeletons, sixty percent of which are believed to have been sacrificial killings or ritual executions. This was estimated due to countless bodies missing hands and skulls, more than fifty 21 year-old women found in neatly-separated layers, and finally a mass burial grave with over 40 men and women who appear to have been violently killed.
In fact evidence supports some were alive when they were buried, attempting to claw their way out of the mass of dead bodies.
You forgot the Southwestern United States AND the Anastazi.
No mystery. They let libtards run things.
