The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft and surface vessels allegedly disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Popular culture has attributed these disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings. Documented evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were inaccurately reported or embellished by later authors, and numerous official agencies have stated that the number and nature of disappearances in the region is similar to that in any other area of ocean.

The earliest allegation of unusual disappearances in the Bermuda area appeared in a September 16, 1950 Associated Press article by Edward Van Winkle Jones. Two years later, Fate magazine published "Sea Mystery At Our Back Door", a short article by George X. Sand covering the loss of several planes and ships, including the loss of Flight 19, a group of five U.S. Navy TBM Avenger bombers on a training mission. Sand's article was the first to lay out the now-familiar triangular area where the losses took place. Flight 19 alone would be covered in the April 1962 issue of American Legion Magazine. It was claimed that the flight leader had been heard saying "We are entering white water, nothing seems right. We don't know where we are, the water is green, no white." It was also claimed that officials at the Navy board of inquiry stated that the planes "flew off to Mars." Sand's article was the first to suggest a supernatural element to the Flight 19 incident. In the February 1964 issue of Argosy, Vincent Gaddis's article "The Deadly Bermuda Triangle" argued that Flight 19 and other disappearances were part of a pattern of strange events in the region. The next year, Gaddis expanded this article into a book, Invisible Horizons.


What are your thoughts on the Bermuda Triangle? Do you think most of the stuff that happen are real?

It seems really strange to me. I'm not sure if it's paranormal stuff or anything like that. But you never know.
It sure is freaky though.

I'm a UFO and paranormal nerd, so I pretty much wet myself at the thought of the Bermuda Triangle. Plan to visit some day ^^

I don't believe in the Bermuda Triangle, it's simple culture and substitution playing a part in how it's perceived. I won't believe ghosts, demons, aliens, or whatever did it. I want to see real evidence first, not assumption and simple paranormal hypothesis.

Until I'm actually proven wrong, I'll just consider it another place in the world.

It is weird, but I don't think all of those things that have happened is due to paranormal activity/extraterrestrial things, I think there's a more scientific explanation behind it...

The skeptic side of the story is starting to make a little more sense. Nonetheless it's interesting. I think the Dragon Triangle owns Bermuda though. Crazier shit happens.

I can't find the article. Tried looking through google. Anyway,

Some guy went fishing there.
Apparently he was gone for 10 days. But when he came back, he claimed he was only gone for 3 hours. o__o

Uh no I don't go by supernatural stories and hearsay, the only thing that I accept are cold hard scientific facts. Personally I think all the supposed phenomenon are a clever tourist tactic.

I'm not a skeptic, I believe in a lot of things. The Bermuda Triangle is just one of the most fascinating mysteries. All of those mysteries piled up into one place, you can't deny that it's more than just a coincidence.

Has anyone heard of the Fart Theory for the bermuda triangle?

If the triangle is located near large pockets of methane gas (natural gas), if one of these pockets were to burst and be released, it would destroy the surface tension of the water, causing ships to lose their buoyancy, as well as cause other problems if the pocket of gas was dense enough, like lowering the density of air causing aircraft to lose all lift.

I can't find any videos of it, but I've seen somewhere a model of the experiment, and once the surface tension is lost, a boat will sink like a rock.

^ Yeah, I've watched that in NatGeo channel. It's the reason why I don't believe in the rumors about Bermuda triangle anymore.
