Can somebody give me a complete answer about the stories about the Bermuda-Triangle.I mean what is the mechanism that is driving the storms and the mysteries around the triangle.And to make matters even more difficult I watched a documentary on the history channel that it was found that there was another triangle on the same longitude and latetude but on the other side of the earth.

For example the story about the lost Allied fleet of 1939 (correct me if I am wrong).

Forth I am still searching,trying to find answers.

one theory is that passing through it will warp you to a higher frequency (aka different plane/dimension ?)

No idea what it really is tho,its just a theory which may sound possible (tho doubtful)

Here is my fav site about the Bermuda Triangle. One of the more startling disapearances in the Bermuda Triangle is Flight 19.


Bermuda Triangle.org

No doubt you have wondered about the Bermuda Triangle. It is the greatest
modern mystery of our supposedly well understood world: a region of the  Atlantic
Ocean between Bermuda, Miami, Florida, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, where
disappearances of ships and planes not only continue but continue to defy explanation.


A real search for an answer must follow the path upon which the evidence leads one. For the Triangle, this path takes us on an unnerving odyssey through fascinating concepts, from deep below the ocean to far out in space, from high in the atmosphere to the very zero-point of existence, from the complex makeup of this huge planet to the smallest particles of existence.

The paradoxes do not cease—the outback nature of the Triangle leads us to the prehistoric past and the rise of the civilization of mankind. And to answer what happened to very tangible ships and planes, we must even consider the opposite: the science behind “clairvoyance” and if the predictions about the Bermuda Triangle long before it became a concept have any merits.

No matter which theory one decides to tackle, the path weaves many of them together in a cunning way. In the end, one can truly wonder, are these theories really the cause, or are they only the symptoms of something that lies deeper down? These few links only give you a small foretaste of what is in Gian Quasar’s new book Into The Bermuda Triangle

I believe the Triangle to be the area above the lost city of Atlantis.

Thanks.This has really help me put some perspective on this subject because I was so misguided by all these other stories about the Bermuda-Triangle.

The modern legend of the Bermuda Triangle began soon after five Navy planes [Flight 19] vanished on a training mission during a severe storm in 1945. The most logical theory as to why they vanished is that lead pilot Lt. Charles Taylor’s compass failed. The trainees' planes were not equipped with working navigational instruments. The group was disoriented and simply, though tragically, ran out of fuel. No mysterious forces were likely to have been involved other than the mysterious force of gravity on  planes with no fuel. It is true that one of the rescue planes blew up shortly after take-off, but this was likely due to a faulty gas tank rather than to any mysterious forces.

Over the years there have been dozens of articles, books, and television programs promoting the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. In his study of this material, Larry Kusche found that few did any investigation into the mystery. Rather, they passed on the speculations of their predecessors as if they were passing on the mantle of truth. Of the many uncritical accounts of the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, perhaps no one has done more to create this myth than Charles Berlitz, who had a bestseller on the subject in 1974. After examining the 400+ page official report of the Navy Board of Investigation of the disappearance of the Navy planes in 1945, Kusche found that the Board wasn't baffled at all by the incident and did not mention alleged radio transmissions cited by Berlitz in his book. According to Kusche, what isn't misinterpreted by Berlitz is fabricated. Kusche writes: "If Berlitz were to report that a boat were red, the chance of it being some other color is almost a certainty." (Berlitz, by the way, did not invent the name; that was done by Vincent Gaddis in "The Deadly Bermuda Triangle," which appeared in the February, 1964, issue of Argosy, a magazine devoted to fiction.)

In short, the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery by a kind of communal reinforcement among uncritical authors and a willing mass media to uncritically pass on the speculation that something mysterious is going on in the Atlantic.

I don't know much about the modern mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle, but it is thought that the island in the Shakespeare play The Tempest was based on Bermuda, which Had been recently discovered.  In the Tempest the storm, which mysteriously wrecks the ship was caused by the magician Prospero.  No, I don't really think that any of the disappearances in that area have been caused by a 400 year old magician, but it's an interesting coincidence that Shakespeare used that island.  I wonder if there had been any strange occurances there in his day or if he just used an island that, because it was so far away and unexplored seemed exotic and magical to his audience.

Watched a documentary on the effects of methane gas pockets and internal combustion engines in flight...as well as the effects on buoyancy losses due to large methane gas releases under boats.

Was quite interesting how little methane it actually took to cut out the engines.

Google     Parapsychology .. Timeslip phenomena and then put 2 and 1 together.
The answer is odd, but so is the Bermuda-Triangle

Of course there is the theory that the Bermuda Triangle  is just an area of high traffic with highly variable weather conditions. Seems boring, but squint at that when you're a little more credulous than average and -- Ta-Da! -- an unsolved mystery.

here's another theory for you NeoGenesis. i know it doesn't really account for radar problems and the like, but one of the explanations i've heard is that it's simply because the islands in and around it look so similar.

apparently Shakespeare was heavily involved in the 'London Virginia Company.'     you know, a trading company...plantations, slaves, commodities etc.
Just think 'the bad guys in Pirates of the Carribean' and your'e on the right tracks...

does the subtext of The Tempest include such themes that would have relevance to this....? Yes.

Is Prospero the 'cause' of the Bermuda triangle?   .... No.....did he cause the 'Tempest' ?  No.

The area is known for its storms, but this alone is not justification for 'the Tempest' nor is it an attempt at explaining a 'bermuda triangle' phenomenon.

Its a surprisingly worthwhile read if you ever get the opportunity.

about 150 British travelers were blown off course by a hurricane and shipwrecked (1609–10) at Bermuda, which they named the Somers Isles. News of these events inspired Shakespeare's writing of The Tempest (1611–12); in the play Ariel makes reference to “the still-vex'd Bermoothes.” Bermuda was included (1612) in the third charter of the Virginia Company, and 60 English settlers were sent to colonize the islands. Indian and African slaves were transported to Bermuda by 1617, and soon the slave population outnumbered the white settlers.

I rarely talk about such things but I once shoveled 18 tons of material in 11 min-

It's also said that the Bermuda Triangle and The Dragon's Triangle are the only two places where magnetic north and north are the same.
