I did a search on the forum and couldn't find anything to do with the Oak Island Money Pit, at least in search results, so thought I'd start a thread to discuss it.

I find this to be one of the world's great mysteries that so few people seem to know about.

I've included video documentaries on it below. You can also read extensive background on its discovery at THE MYSTERY PIT OF OAK ISLAND.

Oak Island Money Pit Mystery (from the Ancient Aliens series):

Anyone here who has put time into this mystery? Please share your thoughts!

This was the subject of an episode of In Search Of..., that Leonard Nimoy TV show in 1980. I watched it then as a kid and was riveted. Found a book about it soon after and read it several times. I obsessed over the possible builders of the pit more than the story of the subsequent treasure hunters who failed to reach its trove.
This pit seems impossible for humans to have engineered, certainly for the 'uneducated pirates' who hoisted the layers of whatever and whatnot down an impossibly deep nicely square hole in Nova Scotia?! of all places.

It is called a "money pit" because people have spent fortunes trying to reach the bottom of it.
If you watch the videos, you will be able to see it is an impossibilty, much less how it was constructed.
