What is the mystery behind the Bermuda Triangle?
2 Answers | add yours
The Bermuda Triangle is a rough triangle between Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. It refers to an area where many ships and planes are reported to have gone missing. Many stories have appeared in the popular media since the early 1950s testifying both to the disappearances and to their unexplained nature.
It is highly debated how real the triangle is. The Naval Historical Center flatly states that " US Navy does not believe the Bermuda Triangle exists." They consider it a myth, in other words, that there is anything special about this area. They have, however, lost ships in that area—but it is a thousand mile stretch of water, plenty large enough to lose ships for natural reasons.
As for the mystery, for those who believe in the Triangle, the mystery is, what causes all the wrecks?
