Is The Bermuda Triangle Real?

The Bermuda Triangle is a large area of ocean between Florida and Puerto Rico, and Bermuda.bermuda triangle

Over the past few centuries, it’s thought that dozens of ships and planes have disappeared under mysterious circumstances in the area, earning it the nickname “The Devil’s Triangle.” Occurrences of such mysterious events like sudden disappearing of vessels and aircraft have left everyone puzzled. Mysterious disappearing of ships and airplanes led people to believe in the presence of supernatural powers in the Bermuda Triangle region. some of the mysterious happenings include…

  • A pair of Avro Tudor IV passenger aircraft: 1)the Star Tiger was lost on January 30, 1948, 2) the Star Ariel on January 17, 1949.
  • The disappearance of the SS Marine Sulphur Queen on February 4, 1963.
  • The paranormal experience of airplane pilot Chuck Wakely in 1964.
  • The disappearance of expert yachtsman Donald Crowhurst on June 29, 1969.

Many people think that the weather being bad has a lot to do with the disappearances, but it turns out that the Bermuda Triangle is no more dangerous than other similarly storm-prone areas. I honestly don’t know what really happened. Nobody has yet to find out what really happened in those times as well. There is also known to be a large deposit of methane (water ice containing interstitial methane) on the seafloor in the region of the Bermuda Triangle. Sudden melting of large deposits was known to occur. These could release enough methane into the water, that upon reaching the surface, the density of the water would be suddenly decreased. This could possibly cause a large ship to sink suddenly without warning. No scientist around has yet to find out what really happened with the mishaps.bermuda triangle

I personally think that maybe the Bermuda Triangle is a myth and also the strange disappearances are just from natural causes. The methane is less likely to be in that area because then fish and other living organisms won’t be able to survive. Maybe the weather and the fact that the water is deep in that area or even that the waves are too much for the boats and other objects to handle. Nobody still knows where all these ships and planes end up, there was a couple of investigations but nothing was ever found. But I guess the mystery continues on and on for many more years as people continue to wonder what really happened.
