Facts & Myths About the Bermuda Triangle

Posted on July 23, 2008

The Bermuda triangle is region located in north-western Atlantic Ocean in which numerous aircraft and surface vessels have disappeared. Some people claim that these disappearances fall beyond the boundaries of acts of nature or even human error and instead attribute the disappearances to a variety of explanations including the paranormal, suspensions in the laws of physics, and even activities by extraterrestrial beings.

Numerous investigations by government agencies and the like have gone on record stating that the number of disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle is not all that different from the number of disappearances in any other proportionate area of any other ocean.

There has also been substantial documentation showing a number of incidents that have been either inaccurately reported, or embellished by authors. Despite this, believers in the Bermuda Triangle phenomenon still feel there are too many unanswered, and likely unexplainable answers for it all to be merely a coincidence.

Some of the more popular theories to explain the mysteries are the vast fields of methane hydrates in the area. These fields are capable of producing enough bubbles to shrink ships by lowering the waters density. Others claim that abnormal compass problems in the area cause navigators to lose sight of their route and destination and get lost. Some people also blame hurricanes in the area, the Gulf Stream, and freak waves. Still others link the mysteries to the lost continent of Atlantis, the Bimini Road, and even UFO�s.
