Lots of news and stories about planes, people and ships going missing in the Bermuda Triangle for a very long time!

But how true are the conspiracy theories?

Have scientists actually debunked the Bermuda Triangle?

Read More:
www.rizbit.uk...

The actual explanation may seem strange but probably more scientifically backed than say UFO's attacking and 'kidnapping' planes/ships.

They've also blamed UFO sightings on swamp gas.

Nice post rkingpin.
The Bermuda Triangle is a myth. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has set the record straight. The U.S. government agency claims that foul weather and poor navigation are likely to blame for any mishaps in the area between Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico! See our government said that must be true! LOL.

This is a joke, right?


They say the cause of these craters is not meteors from outer space but methane gas explosions under the ocean.  The explosions being caused by methane gas turning from ice state to gas state too quickly and the energy of the reaction causing huge gushings up of water which could swallow up whole ships or low flying planes who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.


Lol. Swamp gas.

I think it is from the storms in the area. They pop up out of nowhere, and are often violent, causing rouge waves and other hazardous conditions.

Add the fact that there are growing coral, oyster shoals, rocks, wrecks and other boat shredding underwater obstructions everywhere. You can be 50 miles out an slam into a reef very easy, and when the sea picks up, you can't see them.

You also have a ton of sand through the area, that is shifting all over the place, filling channels and changing the accuracy of charts.

Heading for cover if a storm pops up, can be like speeding through a minefield w/o sonar, or similar aid.

Growing up in the triangle and all this still holds an interest. Methane is clearly nothing new as an explanation now they've brought more to the table about it. Wouldn't say debunked, rather I'd say it's more of a combination of factors instead of just one theory. No, wait, clearly it's only ever been Chinese lanterns!

How is it a joke? Because of the ice created by methane gas?

Methane's melting point (albeit a sea level) is -182°C.

I would like SOME explanation to why there is solid state methane down below - and in such quantities that its phase change in result in half-mile wide, 150 ft deep craters.


Also ..swamp gas. Swamp gas is the joke.

I live here in Florida most of my life. There is some weird activity out there. Like compass spinning and electronic interference. If you look on satellite there is an earth magnetic anomaly in the area. It is probably responsible for compass and electronic malfunctions. But, the problem is the weather. Also the bottom geography and the gulf stream, all come together to raise serious rogue waves that will flat wipe a ship off the ocean with no warning time to even call it in.

I have seen the stuff about frozen methane or hydrocarbons erupting. It reduced the density of the water from the bubbles and a ship loses buoyancy and can swamp. There have been rare reports of boiling seas from ships, but I have never heard of a real incident. We just had a freighter go down near the Bahamas that left port right here in Jacksonville. He went out and thought he could chart around the storm. It change in route and the thing broke up in like 2,500' water all crew lost. If you can go out today in a modern tanker with all the technology and lose it, I am sure there have been lots of other loses like that from captains that thought they were going to beat the weather or rough seas and just disappeared.

And that leaves ghost ships. Probably pirates. We have modern day pirates still off Florida. They steal boats from people to run drugs in or just to steal the boat or rob the people. I would bet that is what most boats and ships found with no one aboard were abducted or murdered at sea.

That is just how I see it after all these years.

See!
Literally swamp gas!

Opinions are like arseh0les. Everyone has one. Even scientists. Anyway, since when can we handle the truth. It will always be gas.

There is a lot of land within the "triangle" especially according to the pic on that webpage, a chunk of Florida resides within it, plus most or all of the Bahamas.

What no one ever talks about is if anything strange happens on land more in these areas than anywhere else outside of the triangle. I'd like to know.

Someone explained this theory to me a couple of years ago. The methane idea is legit, many oil rigs have collapsed into the sea after drilling into a methane pocket, I'm just not fully convinced that it will affect airplanes? Wouldn't the gas disperse to quickly before reaching cruising altitude for airplanes? I think it's possible, I'm just a little unsure... I also believe it's more than one factor. I know that the triangle does something funny to electrical equipment because of how the earth's magnetic field operates around there. But I've also looked into the more crazy theories. I especially enjoy the idea that a wormhole through space/time is able to open there

If I'm not mistaken it's not in a solid form. It's pockets of gas trapped beneath the ocean floor.

Are you kidding me? You don't see all the nuts from Florida? Something is effecting the land lol!

There is methane in solid form on the floor in some instances..I think it has to be the tremendous pressure at depth is why it can exist there.

Interesting word debunked. Being a very American word and not being American myself; does it mean:


proven beyond reasonable doubt to be fully explained in a way that the current premise can lo longer be sustained.

there is evidence indicating the current premise may not be warranted.

there circumstances which cast doubt on the sustainability of current or asserted premise.

there are assertions which claim to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the current premise cannot be sustained.


I have noticed over time, usually in the UFO forum and the Chemtrail forum that just because 3-4 consecutive posts or a number of posts in a thread, claim fakery therefore, there is consensus the initial claim or assertion is debunked.

Just an observation that causes me to wonder about how much evidence is sufficient to prove 'its debunked.'

Perhaps its like beauty, its all in the eye of the beholder and I suppose at the end of the day we all have make our own minds up.

Perhaps this should have been in the rant section?

A better question would be "Has anyone proven the "Bermuda Triangle" exists?

why does a large section of ATS have this obsession with shifting the burden of evidence ?

every freaking week - there is another " has < insert delusion > been debunked "

try presenting actual evidence FOR the claim - if the tail has any merit - it should not be hard

as for the specific case of " teh bermuda triangle "

the claims are too often embelished or fabricated - why do people need to do that it it is true ?
