Who really knows the truth? Where did it come from? Can it be real? Who do you believe? Whatever happen to Flight 19? Why wasn’t any of the ships or boats retrieved? These are all the questions people ask daily about the Bermuda Triangle. Today I hope to make it clear who and what to believe.
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil Triangle, is a loosely defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. According to the US Navy, the triangle does not exist, and the name is not recognized by the US Board on Geographic names popular culture has attributed various disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial begins.
Document evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were spurious, inaccurately reported or embellished by later authors. Some writers give different boundaries and an idea of the triangle, with some numbers I came up with from research; 1,000,000 to 3,000,000 km (500,000 to 1,500,000sq mi). The United States Board on Geographic Names does not recognize the devil triangle and it is not delimited in any map drawn by the United State government agencies.
The earliest allegation of unusual disappearances in the Bermuda area is still a mystery. I looked up some old articles on the Bermuda Triangle from the 1960’s when the disappearance was really looked upon as not an accident. While doing research I found that flight 19 was never covered. It puzzled the people over the radio when the pilot of Flight 19 said “We are entering white waters, something doesn’t seem right!” “We don’t know where we are the water is white not green!” where did the plane disappear to?

...thing discovered that would indicate that casualties were the results of anything other than physical because no extraordinary factors have ever been identified. So it’s easy to make a mistake confusing one with another and in such confusion if the captain takes a wrong turn of direction, then he can slowly but surely get to such water area where it would be too late to turn back and refuel.
Is the government denying everything to keep making money off us? Are they just saying this to keep us from worrying? Are they desecrating us from something top secret? I see it now probably twenty years from now if not sooner they’re going to come out with some off the wall story about what they found and what the Bermuda Triangle really does and we as a hold is going to believe them because they’re the government and they wouldn’t lie to us! So I ask again, who do you believe?

- To understand the roots and impacts of racial profiling and the iron triangle, it is beneficial to know exactly what racial profiling and the iron triangle entails.
