Modern Mysteries

Veteran Bermuda Triangle diver offers his thoughts on the enigma

Michael C. Barnette is a diver and marine biologist who has spent years diving in the infamous region of the Atlantic.
There are few mysteries as enduring as the Bermuda Triangle - an expanse of ocean in the North Atlantic that spans the area between Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.

Over the years the region has become synonymous with the unexplained disappearances of ships and airplanes - often with no trace of them or their crews ever being found.

For Michael C. Barnette, however, spending time in the Bermuda Triangle is just another day at the office.

Star of the returning History Channel series The Bermuda Triangle: Into Cursed Waters, Barnette has spent many years locating and exploring the various shipwrecks found in the region.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, he doesn't subscribe to the idea that there is anything unusual going on.

"I don't entertain the paranormal," he said. "I think everything has a rational explanation, but, for better or worse, the Bermuda Triangle captures people's imaginations."

"When we find those ships, we can provide a rational explanation for their losses, and share that it's not an abstract thing, this triangle with 'mystical' properties. These are human stories."

"There are human lives lost when a ship founders in a storm or an aircraft disappears."

"There are human lives lost when a ship founders in a storm or an aircraft disappears.” This is so uselessly glib - melting frozen yogurt coming from this guys ears - that I think I am now a leftist, and believe that people need to apply for a license in order to even open up their mouths after they get out of their pod beds in the morning.   The Dumb…the sheer, unadulterated, proudly ignorant Du...

This “veteran diver” should have gone back and read the original pre non sensationalistic articles and reports for these “disappearances”.  (Very few, like the Star Tiger and Star Ariel are legitimately unexplainable. There are other areas of the world where things like this happen. 9 times out of 10 it has to do with mechanical failure, storms or just the dangerous nature of the area). Like author Lawrence David Kushe did when writing The Bermuda Triangle Mystery Solved. People are so damned gullible. They always have been.
