Known as the Devil's Triangle or Hurricane Alley, this particular region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean has been a source of mystery for thousands.
This is because dozens of aircraft and ships that had passed by this area bordering Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico had vanished without trace.
While some dispute them as mere coincidences and possibly even accidents, some believe that there are mysterious things afoot taking place in this region.
Some believe that extra-terrestrials have made this site their zone to kidnap human beings for their experiments. These disappearances, hugely popularised by sci-fi movies, could also be linked to supernatural happenings according to some. However, some of the incidences have since been debunked as inaccurate and fake.
With many aircraft and ships constantly going missing without even sending any distress signals, some people began speculating that the Bermuda Triangle was a portal to a different realm where things go in and couldn't come out. Worst, those who venture in would never ever come out alive.
Christopher Columbus, who was famous for sailing the seas, had once reported that he witnessed a "great flame of fire" which crashed into the sea. Following that, he saw a strange light which appeared in the region a few weeks later. He also wrote in his journal that his compass was extremely erratic when his ship sailed by this region.
More Unsolved Mysteries
It was 1964 when author Vincent Gaddis gave the region its infamous name: The Bermuda Triangle. By then, hundreds of mysterious disappearances had happened and many had all sorts of speculations on why aircrafts and ships went missing. These theories ranged from the Atlantis, sea monsters, reverse gravity fields, magnetic anomalies, and to methane gas from the ocean.
But There Is A Logical Explanation
The Bermuda Triangle is also one of the most busiest sea routes due to its large area, 700,000 square-kilometres, and because of this, one scientist in 2017 said that the percentage of ships going missing is the same in other areas. Karl Kruszelnicki concluded that majority of the disappearances was down to human error and bad weather.
Do you buy his reasoning or is there more that we don't know?
