Last week poll was, The Bermuda Triangle disappearances... And here are your answers.
40% ...are just bad luck like in any part of the world.
40% ...are attributed to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings.
To tell you the true this is a topic full of mysterie. While doing some research to let you guys know the "truth" about the Bermuda Triangle dissappearances, I learn that even thought scientist claim to all be normal, theres a lot that is unknown. But I guess in my personal opinion that everything in this world CAN'T be full explain by science alone.
The "REAL TRUTH" about it, is still completely unknown, even when the scientist claim to have multiple reasons why this is just another place where people tend to have bad luck, and everything is "TOTALLY" explain by the course of nature. All we have are facts that might help understand a bit of the disappearances that happen in "The Devil's Triangle" and a hand full of legends and myths about the place. First I will try to give you guys a short version of how The Bermuda Triangle came to be so famous.
You won't find it on any official map and you won't know when you cross the line, but according to some people, the Bermuda Triangle is a very real place where dozen of ships, planes and people have disappeared with no good explanation. Since a magazine first coined the phrase "Bermuda Triangle" in 1964, the mystery has continued to attract attention.
The first legends of the Bermuda Triangle begin with Cristopher Columbus. As a captain, he was greatly respected, and his brave sailing efforts helped revolutionize the world. Much of the information we have about Columbus is picked up directly from his journal, so we are able to trace his footsteps to the New World. His first problem occurred as he ran into the Sargasso Sea. The crew was greatly disappointed when seaweed and land birds were sighted, but after a few days no land was to be seen. Soon after, Columbus reported his compass acting strangely. He did not report this to his crew due to their deep superstitions. Days later, Columbus saw a large meteor fall from the sky. He described it as "a large ball of light fallen from the sky." It is unsure whether he mentions this occurrences in awe, because of its great size, or in fright. Later in their trip, Columbus and a few crew members sighted a few dancing lights on the horizon. They wandered about in the Caribbean for over a week yet before sighting land.
Over the past 100 years, the Bermuda Triangle has seen what some say is a significant and inordinately high number of unexplained disappearances of planes, ships and people. Some reports say that as many as 100 ships and planes have been reported missing in the area and more than 1,000 lives have been lost. The U.S. Coast Guard, however, maintains that the area does not have an unusual number of incidents.
THE TRUTH??? Well here are some good points that some scientist, historians, and scholars alike have given to say is the "REAL TRUTH" about the Bermuda Triangle.
1.Tropical Weather, Many short and intense storms build up quickly and dissipate quickly, undetected by satellite surveillance. These even hold such dangerous elements as waterspouts that could easily destroy any passing plane or ship.
2.Underwater Earthquakes, Though none have been officially recorded, scientists have found a great deal of seismic activity in this area. In shallow areas, underwater earthquakes have the power to cause such disturbances such as the tsunamis of the far east.
3.The Gas Bubble Theory, A theory also exists among serious scientists that a high concentration of gas hydrates that exists in the area causing the water to become less dense within small patches. This would cause ships to sink quickly and without a trace.
4.The Gulf Stream, This ocean current is extremely strong. It has been reported to move faster than 5 mph in some areas. This is enough to throw many boaters hundreds of miles off coarse because they did not know how to compensate for the current. This, combined with the unusual effects of magnetism on the area, is the cause of many confused sailors.
5.Amateur Sailors, This area is a boon for the inexperienced or unacknowledged boater. The Coast guard gets over 8000 distress calls a year (more than 20 a day!). However, most are sailors who have run out of gas or encountered some other foolish problem. The beautiful area is highly deceptive in its calmness, so sailors are often not prepared for what the sea can throw at them.
6.Traffic, There is undeniably a great deal of boat and airplane traffic over this area. It is not as great as some critics claim, but still a much visited area. Logic would have it that accidents will happen. In fact, it is reported that there are many other areas on earth where more "mysterious disappearances" have occured, such as the Devil's Sea near Japan. The ocean is a dangerous place.
6.Pirates, A common way to get into the drug smuggling business in the '70s and '80s was to pirate a boat for your business. Suspicion also arises at the coincidence of the World Wars and the greatest count of mysterious acts in the Triangle.
Other people believe that the Triangle houses the famous lost city of Atlantis. No evidence has been brought forth to prove this theory, but many claim to have seem or "felt the powers" of the lost city.
Other people look at the lack of information and mystery involved and turn to the only other possible solution--Aliens! Again, there is little evidence to show any sign of UFOs in the area. Several people have claimed to have made UFO sightings, but even popular UFO experts and enthusiasts do not support the photographs involved.
Another Theory given by Rob MacGregor and Bruce Gernon, in thier book The Fog: A Never Before Published Theory of the Bermuda Triangle Phenomenon, reports of an "electronic fog" that both men experienced while flying in the Bermuda Triangle. Gernon believe that powerful electromagnetic storms from within the Earth, break through the surface and come into the atmosphere where they soon disappear, leaving electronic fog. And he believes that the electronic fog had time travel qualities.
So... What do we have? In my OWN PERSONAL OPINION, I will have to say that it just another place where the world acts how it wants to act. For me, no matter how much we study the earth and its reasons for acting or the correct pattern in Natural events, there will always be something that we will not be able to COMPLETELY EXPLAIN. Once again, you will have to think and decided for yourself what makes sense and what is just plain bullshit!
