There's nothing supernatural about the Bermuda Triangle. It's a stormy area.

Magnetic interference probably gives the best valid explanation. Who knows before the last pole shift, Bermuda used to be one of the poles or maybe it is the most exact centrepoint for the current poles and compasses go haywire from not being able to determine if its north or south.

Hmmm ... And yet still nothing weird has happened to Bermuda in the few months since I first posted in this thread.  I suggest people take a trip to this isle of mines and find out about the triangle first hand as local fishermen and piolets laugh in your face and bust your ego.

I'm originally a Miami girl. Though I grew up in North Florida, most of my family resides in Miami, and like anyone else, we spent a lot of time out on the ocean, in it, above it, etc. There is nothing supernatural or weird about the Bermuda Triangle. If you research the incidents, most have been spun to create a mystery, and those that are unexplained are simply ocean casualties. People do get lost at sea, no matter what sea we're talking about. Hate to break it to folks, but looking beyond the hype will put things in perspective. Lloyds of London insures many a merchant vessel, and their long list of records do not show a higher number of incidents in this area than anywhere else.

Anyone that has spent time in this particular part of the world knows that the warmer months where people are more apt to be out on the ocean is also the wet season. That means storms. Storms that crop up seemingly out of nowhere every afternoon.

I am serious.  Come to my island and other areas that touch the Bermuda triangle.  Talk to people who have been out on the waters i.e. pilots and fishermen; and prepare to be laughed in your face ("Oh you actually believe in that stuff kid?  I was alive before that silly legend even existed").   A true researcher needs to actually get down and dirty and go to a place to find out what it is all about, not sit on an armchair from afar and make presumptions (like these Chinese businessmen made news on my isle because they were afraid to come here due to a fear their plane would disappear in the Bermuda Triangle.  Ah we locals had a good laugh at that).  And I have a life.  It's great.  What about you bub?  Come to my island if you dare.  Hop on a plane, rent a hotel room, rent a scooter and start asking around.  grin2.gif

Oh, and take a trip to Florida too.  Like the poster above, Miami is supposed to be a Bda Triangle hot spot but nothing weird seems to be going on there either.  Instead, while you're there, indulge in one of the beautiful women prowling South Beach.  Bring some friends, it'll be worth your while.

Yea, I just wanted to stoke the fires a bit.  I can't believe people still believe in this stuff, well I can, but be ready to back things up and not just defend what you know about an area from purely a book when there is a big wide world out there hungry for adventurers (read factual books that look at both sides of the issue, explore the region and ask the locals, check the cold hard statistics).  Let's be realistic.  Late night trolling.  grin2.gif

It's funny how people like to sensationalize things rather than get the real story from the locals and do the research into supposedly mysterious disappearances. I really don't understand how on earth this myth has persisted.

They still sell Bermuda Triangle books.  I guess people love a good mystery about an area where strange things go on - the myth has persisted for so long.  And people aren't really encouraged to question or develop a healthy sense of skepticism. The truth - the sea is a hard place and is not for the inexperienced - people do die and all the time.  It seems so conquerable to us as we sit in our cozy homes and hear about people braving the oceans, but the open oceans are no joke.  You slip and get tossed over board into choppy waters, the current takes your boat far out and there you go another victim of the Bermuda Triangle.

You've hit it right on the nose, Obsin. I was taught at an early age to love the sea, but also to respect it. Just because we have modern technologies and a bigger understanding of it than we ever did doesn't mean that we can somehow conquer it. We are land animals, for one, and we still don't know a lot about what's down there. People lose sight of that when they get out on a beautiful ocean and want to play Errol Flynn. When you combine that with the inexperienced tourist going out on the water on their own, of course there will be problems.

It just amazes me that these books even sell. You would think that people would respect the truth even though it's not as sexy.

Anyone know about the Philadelphia experiment and the Mantauk Projects and their findings and the possible connection to the position of the triangle on the Earth?

Or am I alone?

Its quite lengthy to explain, so if someone else wants to do it, that would be nice.

Very true there is nothing odd about the area.
