The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle is shrouded, in a thick cloud of mystery, in a thick cloud of controversy, and a

thick cloud of argument. Not even the location of the Triangle is agreed on. The most common

description of its location is the triangle formed by linking Bermuda, Miami, and Puerto Rico. But there

is also two other descriptions: The Devil's Triangle is more like a blob that covers most of the western

Caribbean. The Limbo of the lost is an area that stems from Miami to Barbados to the coast of

Ireland. All these areas are easily confused, mainly because people are over zealous to blame ship/

plane disappearances on the Triangle. There is also a theory by Ivan T. Sanderson that describes 12

"vile vortexes," that are places around the world with similar dimensions, where ship and other vessels

tend to disappear. The most reported upon disappearance has to be the unexplained disappearance of

flight 19. Flight 19 was a routine training flight in 1945 that mysteriously disappeared until 1992, when

wreckage was finally uncovered. Five Grumman TBM Avenger bombers took off from the Naval Air

Station at Ft. Lauderdale Florida. From that point on, nothing is agreed on. Some will say that all the

pilots were experienced. But others say only one had any significant flying time. And he was drunk.

Some say the weather was "ideal" for flying, but others say that later in the day the weather turned

afoul. Of course, then the infamous conversations from planes to the base. Accounts of the recordings

differ as well. Certain discrepancies are apparent in each account given by different expert offers on

the subject. Some give accounts of instruments failing (which will be explained later), and yet others

...d have defeated the Ancient Greeks in battle? Some more presentable

theories are the possibilities of flammable gas deposits that leak during volcanic activity. It large (and I

mean large) pockets of gas were released, the falling of ships in to the void of the space left by the

emerging bubbles then being crushed by the returning water, would cause the almost instant

disappearance of ships. Also the gases if made in contact with a plane or jet engine would ignite

causing an explosion. There is also a theory that the Bermuda Triangle is a point where there are holes

in space and time that if a vessel goes through such a hole it is transported to another dimension. Well

science can't totally disprove this theory since we don't quite know the full nature of time, and/or

dimensional shifts. So it is safe to say it is better not to assume the latter, yet.
