The mystery of Bermuda Triangle

I bet you have read many articles and heard many times about mysterious place called the Bermuda Triangle (or Devil’s Triangle). So we decided to shed some light and tell you everything we know about the place where ships and airplanes disappear for unknown reasons.

Bermuda Triangle is an area bounded by points in Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico. The place got it name in 1964 due to Vincent Gaddis who mentioned it in an article in a men’s pulp magazine “Argosy”. However, the real fame came to the area almost a decade later when the book “The Bermuda Triangle” by Charles Berlitz was published. Although he was famous for creating a series of English courses he was also interested in paranormal activities and, as a result, the book was written.

There are several hypotheses why the Triangle tends to destroy any kind of transport passing through the area. According to one of them, the city of Atlantis that may existed on the bottom of the sea could use its “crystal energies” to sink the ships. One more scientific explanation lies in the flammable methane gas known to exist in large quantities under the sea. Lightning or an electrical spark ignited a huge bubble of methane that came to the surface right next to a ship or plane, causes ships to sink without a trace. Another opinion is rogue tidal waves. Geomagnetic anomaly is also believed to cause navigation problems that confuse pilots and make them lose control of planes. In fact pilots are trained to fly without electronic navigation, so this belief loses its sense. However, due to fluctuations in the Earth’s magnetic field this has apparently not been the case since the nineteenth century.

Disappearing facts

It seems that there are many questions that need to be answered. But first you should think, is there really a mystery to explain?

Larry Kusche recently came to a conclusion that there is no mystery in the disappearance in the Bermuda Triangle. He provides all the facts that made him to think that in his book  “The Bermuda Triangle Mystery — Solved”. He proved that all these buzz around the Devil’s Triangle was based on mistakes and fabrication. Kusche also claims that Berlitz was totally wrong and that his book has no scientific base at all. What is more, after having examining Berlitz’s work Kusche claimed that it was riddled with errors, mistakes, and unscientific crank theories. He explained that there were no records of ships that sank in the Bermuda Triangle – they existed only in Berlitz’s imagination. In other cases the ships were real enough but they sank far away the Bermuda Triangle and there is no reason to refer them to the “damned” area.

Furthermore, the area of the Bermuda Triangle is heavily traveled with cruise and cargo ships what makes it pretty clear why the vessels have more chances to sink there than outside the triangle like in South-Pacific.

Also the journalist Kusche has provided many facts that should persuade readers that the Bermuda Triangle is a common area where ships tend to sink but for logical reasons like storms, for instance, it will remain the mystery for the rest of the history.
