|Bermuda Triangle (map)|
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is bounded by Miami, Florida, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and the Bermuda Island. Writer, Vincent Gaddis, came up with the name of this place. The Bermuda Triangle was, and still is, vastly known for its mysterious disappearances of aircrafts and ships. No one can explain this phenomenon, although many try.
One theory suggests that methane gas trapped under the ocean floor erupts, which lowers the water density, causing the ships to sink. Another theory suggests that it may be an electronic fog that interferes with the ships radio instruments, causing the captain to lose control of the ship, crash, and slowly sink to the bottom. Others say it is a black hole that sucks in the passing ships and planes and some say that it is purely witchcraft. Some, like I, think it does not even exist and that it is merely a hoax. Researchers have spent decades searching for the “truth” about the Bermuda Triangle, but they have still to this day come up with anything solid. According to Michelle Radcliff, the Bermuda Triangle is still fairly active. Christopher Colombus was supposedly the first person to experience strange things such as instrument malfunctions in 1492. The earliest known report of the first disappearing was in 1812, on a ship named Patriot and the latest report of an incident was allegedly in 2015 when the SS El Faro fell victim to the The Bermuda Triangle. There have reportedly been witnesses and survivors of these incidents. Cary Gordon Trantham, a survivor in a 1995 incident, reported encountering strange things while flying over the area as well. She has a page called www.bermudatriangle.com and there you can read her sightings and see videos and pictures.
