The Bermuda Triangle is a place where the God kill the evils, instead of sending them to hell.

kind of like the above poster sirfiroth? lol

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done

I'AM SMISSY!!!!

The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by true, I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer is: No.

lol. Well, the theory of a black hole is specific seems odd to me because a black hole supposedly sucks EVERYTHING in. Even light. If there where a black hole in the Bermuda triangle, then the whole world would implode on itself wouldn't it? A wormhole, possibly, but there would have to be multiple wormholes. I too saw the methane gas specials on tv. I think that's the cause personally, but then again, what's the deal with the compasses in planes going haywire? It's just something we'll probably never be able to offer one single explanation for.

I have heard about the methane gas theory before.  The other theories I haven't and I can only pull this face ---> ohmy.gif

Out of interest, does anyone know the last recorded date of a disappearane re The Bermuda Triangle.  I don't, I was just wondering.

this is a direct quote:

"There is much support for the theory that UFO's and extraterrestrials are responsible for the many losses in the Triangle. Seamen have reported sightings of “strange flying aircraft” and immediately claimed that they were occupied by ET's, and when they reach the media, the story spreads-though it may not be true. Before long, the idea spreads that the missing people may have been abducted. This had become popular in the mid-1950's; around the time of the testing of many experimental government aircraft. When sightings of one of these aircraft occurred, civilians would notify the Tabloids that an UFO have passed over their house, and even provide a photo that they had taken."

I'm sure there have been incidents since the 50's, but this is all I could surface with 30 minutes or so of research.

I'm unsure on the last known disappearance lotus sorry i searched but couldn't come up with anything after the 1960's my favorite story is still the Mary Celeste grin2.gif as for the whole compass going haywire problem that can easily be explained drum! The Bermuda Triangle region has some unusual features. It's one of only two places on Earth—the other being an area nicknamed the Devil's Sea off the east coast of Japan, which has a similar mysterious reputation—where true north and magnetic north line up, which can make compass readings dicey

THEORY 1 - It is a geologically active area that creates effects naturally.
THEORY 2 - It is an excuse for poor steering/ flying by people.
THEORY 3 - It is nothing, but urban myth blown out of proportion.

you hit the nail on the head!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmm I vaguely recall seeing an article about a flight across the Bermuda triangle where the flight time appeared to the pilot to be much too short, and upon landing there was excess fuel in the tank.

Anyone else recall something like this? or am I just remembering a fiction story I read lol.

As for last disappearence.. on the wiki article was 1999. Some other sites list them later, up to 2002 (closed the tab before grabbing a URL) - it seems it can take some time for a ship to be officially lost there appeared to be some records showing logs of 'overdue' ships in which there were no further notes. Ships or passengers found are noted.

Quote

* 1995: Inter-island freighter Jamanic K (built 1943) reported lost after leaving Cap Haitien.
    * 1999: Freighter Genesis Lost after sailing from Port of Spain to St Vincent; cargo included 465 tons of water tanks, concrete slabs and bricks; reported problems with bilge pump before loss of contact. Search of 33,000 square miles of sea is fruitless.

I don't think this is an urban myth, there are an abnormaly high number of accidents in that region... The only way you would get much variation between 'normal' accidents with poor steering/flying is if there's an abnormal abundance of bad boaters or fliers out there.. otherwise sure there would be examples of this, but it would be with in normal expectations.  Theory 1 on the other hand ... methane bubbles, the proximity to the gulf stream etc..

The Bermuda Triangle is just what seems to be the projection of what the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind wanted people to think.  I think it's theories' 2 and 3 put together.  It may not necessarily be a base of operations, or it could be, that makes sense.

Nocturnal I heard something similiar to that to. I think it was on the discovery or history. Same with the methan bubbles on of those to channels did a test on it and it is true that the bbbles cause the ships to sink. As for the plane having extra fuel and a short fly time I dont know what happened to him.

I thought there were more.  I once saw a picture that triangles all over the world, and all of them had the same features apparantly. I think there were 12 or something. It's just that the Bermuda triangle is the most well known one, and the Devil's Sea after that the best known. I'll see if I can find a picture.


EDIT:
here is a picture, second picture from above is the one I ment

"I believe". With that he started, because he wasn't sure.
