The Bermuda Triangle

* Time and Space

Printer-friendly version
Author:
A Practitioner in Russia

[PureInsight.org] The mere mention of this place evokes a gamut of emotion and images in people: a contact with something mysterious, sinking ships and planes disappearing into nowhere, distortions in time-space, mistrust, fear and a desire to find out the truth hidden behind these mystical phenomena.

The Bermuda Triangle is an area in the Atlantic Ocean where, ostensibly, mysterious disappearances happen at sea and in air. The area is marked by borders from Florida to the Bermudas, further south to Puerto Rico and back to Florida through the Bahamas. A similar “triangle” in the Pacific Ocean is named “devilish.” Various hypotheses put forward that explain these disappearances include unusual weather patterns and alien abductions.

A British pilot was carrying out a mission four years prior to World War II. In the middle of his flight he ran into a heavy thunderstorm. By drawing on past experience, he was able to find an abandoned airport. The moment the airport appeared before his eyes, a completely different picture came into view: All of a sudden it was sunny and cloudless, as if he had just emerged from another world.

I have reflected on it and here's my conclusion:

There may be some individual cases that are interesting to talk about, but they are interesting based on their own merits and not because they happened in the Bermuda triangle.

I fell for the "Bermuda Triangle Theory" as you put it way back but after looking at the area statistically, it doesn't seem to be any more odd than any other area, it's just that a lot of stuff happens there because the area gets a lot of traffic.

It's kind of like saying the 30 miles or 40km around your house is the most dangerous place on earth because that's where you are most likely to get into an accident. While that statistic may be true, it doesn't mean you should move. What it DOES mean is, the reason that's where you're most likely to have an accident, is, because that's where you do most of your driving.

Here's something from "Lying with Statistics: Pseudo Science"

Bermuda Triangle


The Bermuda Triangle or "The Devil's Triangle" is noted for a high occurrence of strange losses of ships and aircrafts. Since the publication of the book "The Bermuda Triangle Mystery-Solved" by Larry Kusche in 1975 it shoud be clear that there is no mystery about this place, but many believers keep on treating it as one of the biggest mysteries of our time. Kusche had used records other writers had neglected and he worked out that the number of airplanes and ships gone missing in this area is not significantly larger than in any other regions of the oceans.


So the Bermuda triangle theory doesn't hold water, statistically.

However if you prefer to discuss individual cases which are mysterious that might be interesting. Methane hydrates are mentioned as one possibility for disappearances:


There seem to be large amounts of methane hydrates in the sea floor sediments, especially on the contenental shelves and below the Bermuda Triangle. Methane eruptions can produce frothy and foaming water with such an increased density that a ship will not be able to float anymore. This could happen very rapidly, so a ship could sink without warning. This theory has been verified in experiments with scale model ships.
Foaming water has decreased density so that must be a typo but if there's enough foam in the water, ships can't float. And there are some massive hydrate deposits which could create massive amounts of foam.
