Believe It or Not - RUMORS of the Past Part 1

These are only few of the controversial issues about famous people and intriguing facts about historical events that may fascinate your senses as I am overwhelmed by the thought of traveling back in time... if only I have the power.

Not every detail of the past had  been written or documented. There are missing links that keep challenging our intellect up to this time. Countless mysteries that will remain unknown and inexplicable.


ABRAHAM LINCOLN is gay.
-According to Ms Sylvia Rhue's post in Huffington:

"Over 16,000 books have been written about Abraham Lincoln, our greatest president. Many of these books either allude to or specifically report on Lincoln's ambiguous relationships with men. Lincoln lived with and shared a bed with Joshua Speed for four years, and they remained friends years after they no longer lived together. He also had a close relationship with Captain David Derickson, who would stay with Lincoln overnight at the Soldier's Home (a retreat from the White House) when Lincoln's wife Mary left town. There were reports of Captain Derickson wearing Lincoln's nightshirt, and Lincoln has been quoted as saying, with a "twinkle" in his eye, "The captain and I are getting quite thick."

Although he fathered four children with Mary Todd, Lincoln's sexuality became a subject for debate of historians and scholars. His intimate relationship with men was believed to be an example of  "the closeting history" -such mystery and secrecy of historical figures like that of the 16th US President Abe Lincoln should be suppressed and hidden.






THE LAST SUPPER has secret codes
- dubbed as one of world's most controversial mural painting done by Leonardo Da Vinci from 1494-1498. It was believed to have secret codes embedded in this master piece. There are speculations and theories regarding the supposed hidden imagery beneath the actual painting.






"The painting represents the scene of The Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples, as it is told in the Gospel of John, 13:21. Leonardo has depicted the consternation that occurred among the Twelve Disciples when Jesus announced that one of them would betray him.

Due to the methods used, and a variety of environmental factors, very little of the original painting remains today, despite numerous restoration attempts, the last being completed in 1999."-source



ALBERT EINSTEIN is playboy
-a German physicist who developed the most famous equation, the general theory of relativity:
E = mc2

"As his fame spread, Einstein's marriage fell apart. His constant travel and intense study of his work, the arguments about their children and the family’s meager finances led Einstein to the conclusion that his marriage was over. Einstein began an affair with a cousin, Elsa Löwenthal, whom he later married. He finally divorced Mileva in 1919 and as a settlement agreed to give her the money he might receive if he ever won a Nobel Prize."-source

"Shortly after that he had an affair with his secretary Betty Neumann. In a new volume of letters held by the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Einstein described about six women with whom he spent time and from whom he received gifts while being married to Elsa."-source
