What is behind the Bermuda Triangle Mystery?

The Bermuda Triangle an area that lies between the Straits of Florida, the Caribbean and the Atlantic east of the Azores. An area that is a busy shipping route as it had to be crossed in order to get to the ports in the Americas, and Europe. This terribly busy area is also a most flown area by commercial and private aircraft. However the area has gained notoriety which was accentuated by mysterious and as yet unexplained disappearances of ships and aircraft crossing this particular area. The mystery deepened as most of the ships and aircraft that vanished did so without a trace. Rumors abound that there is paranormal activity at work.

Some of the several notable losses are the unsolved disappearance of Flight 19, a group of U.S. Navy bombers that was on a training mission. The last thing that was heard from the cockpit was the flight leader’s voice that said “we are entering white water, nothing seems right. We don’t know where we are the water is green and not white”. It was also claimed that the officials of the Navy board of enquiry came out with a weird statement that stated the planes had flown off to Mars. That was the first time a supernatural twist was given to the recurring disappearances. One other major mystery loss was that of USS Cyclops that vanished without a trace with a crew of 309 members in March 1918. A hundred and odd years back, there was a notable disappearance. Theodosia Burr Alston, the daughter of former United States Vice President Aaron Burr was onboard Patriot that set sail from Charleston on December 30 1812; it was bound for New York. However the journey was never completed. The schooner disappeared without a trace and the mystery remains unsolved to this day.

However, there is theory contrary to the paranormal one. Laurence David Kusche, a librarian at the Arizona State University, and the author of The Bermuda Triangle Mystery: Solved. Kusche was of the view that most of the claims were exaggerated and would not pass verification. Kusche’s extensive research threw up startling facts that set people thinking:The number of ships that went missing in the Bermuda Triangle was not greater than those that went missing in other parts of the ocean.

The disappearances themselves were not surprising, given the area being prone to intense tropical storms. A ship caught in a violent storm had every chance to sink.The numbers could have been exaggerated as most disappearances were reported, however recoveries or return of the vessels at some later date went unnoticed as they were not reported.

The legend of the Bermuda Triangle itself was a cooked up story to create sensationalism by newsmongers.In the UK Channel 4 program “The Bermuda Triangle”, the marine insurers Lloyd’s of London were asked if there were more claims for ships sinking in that area as compare to any other, and the answer was in the negative.

There is a supernatural angle to the disappearances that is attributed to remnants of technology from the mythical lost continent of Atlantis; however there is no concrete evidence to back such theories. Natural explanations put forward seem to make better sense, like the compass problems that could be created due to unusual magnetic anomalies found in the region. There is another theory of natural acts of destruction that point to war and piracy. However it is quite unbelievable that such acts could have gone undetected and unreported for such a long period of time. The Gulf Stream that flows between the Gulf of Mexico and the Straits of Florida is not powerful enough to carry away huge ships.

That leaves us with the only plausible options being violent weather and human error both of which could be attributed to the mysterious disappearances. However traffic is still heavy in this area and life seems to go on. More such interesting programs are aired by popular service providers like Verizon FiOS TV.
