The Bermuda Triangle

Bermuda TriangleThe Bermuda Triangle is an undefined region. Its general area is between Bermuda (United Kingdom), Florida (USA), and Puerto Rico (USA). It is famous for being an area where a high number of ships and planes have disappeared.

The first believed disappearance in the Bermuda Triangle was on September 17, 1950.


An outspoken critic of the Bermuda Triangle, Lawrence David Kusche, stated several points:

  • The number of ships and aircraft reported missing in the area was not significantly greater, proportionally speaking, than in any other part of the ocean.
  • In an area frequented by tropical storms, the number of disappearances that did occur were, for the most part, neither disproportionate, unlikely, nor mysterious;
  • Berlitz and other writers would often fail to mention such storms or even represent the disappearance as having happened in calm conditions when meteorological records clearly contradict this.
  • The numbers themselves had been exaggerated by sloppy research. A boat's disappearance, for example, would be reported, but its eventual (if belated) return to port may not have been.
  • Some disappearances had, in fact, never happened. One plane crash was said to have taken place in 1937 off Daytona Beach, Florida, in front of hundreds of witnesses; a check of the local papers revealed nothing.
  • The legend of the Bermuda Triangle is a manufactured mystery, perpetuated by writers who either purposely or unknowingly made use of misconceptions, faulty reasoning, and sensationalism.
According to the United States Navy, the triangle does not exist. The name is not recognized by the US Board on Geographical Names.

It is also unlikely that there are magical creatures (from Rick Riordan's Sea of Monsters and multiple other books) living there. The area is one of the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world, with ships crossing through it daily for ports in the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean Islands. Cruise ships are also plentiful, and pleasure craft regularly go back and forth between Florida and the islands. It is also a heavily flown route for commercial and private aircraft heading towards Florida, the Caribbean, and South America from points north. If there were so many ships in this area, it would be more likely that it is just that the number is proportional to the rest of the world, but since there are larger number of ships, the number is large.

Furthermore, the World Wildlife Fund for World Oceans does not recognize the Bermuda triangle as true. Their infographic below shows that the majority of sea accidents are around Denmark and the United Kingdom, Turkey, Egypt, Greece, Libya, Albania, and South Italy, Japan and Korea, and Brunei and the Philippines.



Gulf Stream
The Gulf Stream allows the ocean to move the debris extremely fast, so it is possible that it causes the "disappearance" of the ship.


















This is a recorded simulation of a rogue waves. Rogue waves are sudden, large waves that occur far out at sea. This is believed to be one of many factors in the "myth" of the Bermuda Triangle.

  1. The gulf stream(in the edges of Bermuda triangle) is the strongest stream. it can move debris way farther in just a few seconds
    that explains all the ships disapeering from their original location.
    second, the road wave
    it is a huge wave that can form and swallow a huge ship in seconds
    it explains why ships dissapear without any maydays or messages
    third(about dark energy so its my favorite), a specific spot in the bermuda triangle produces storms of extreme energy
    this is because some solar flares happen to hit the latitude it is on
    this has so much energy that it sort of makes dark matter rise in a wave.
    this enables airplanes to go 2000 miles per hour when their max speed is 200
    the Bermuda triangle has been exposed
    to sum it up
    the road waves destroy ships super quickly without warning
    the gulf stream carries it far from where it sinked
    airplanes dissapear or move extremely fast because of time space warps caused by dark energy and storms with extreme energy produced by the sun's solar flares

    1. Rogue/Road Waves are also in other parts of the world, not just in the area we call the Bermuda triangle. It is believed that they happen multiple times every year in most oceans.

      I have also posted a video of a rogue wave - it is a simulation, not an actual wave. Therefore, we assume the toy to be a boat, as it has similar capabilities.

    2. Also, the dark matter would have to displace the normal matter. Dark matter is something that is not visible to radio, or anything - under this circumstance, there was a reported disappearance where the radio wave was reported to have said "white water".

      Since dark matter essentially blocks radio waves, it is unlikely that it could be a factor in these disappearances.

  2. This much is true.

    I'll post pictures of the Gulf Stream, (the road wave if I can find it).
    I believe solar flares are random.

    1. And the road wave is normally called rogue wave, rogue meaning wanderer, so it would be like a wandering wave.

      Just a simple explanation.
