Bermuda Triangle Theory

The Bermuda Triangle is an unsolved mystery that leaves many people oblivious as to how it has taken away the lives of countless amounts of humans. The Bermuda Triangle mystery is said to have began in 1945, when a Navy Aircraft pilot left their Florida base on a routine training mission and was never seen again. This mystery, in fact, has eliminated hundreds of vessels from commercial airplanes carrying hundreds of innocent people to navy submarines going on a test-drive. This incident arose lots of suspicion about the Triangle. People started to retell the story and stretch the truth in their own manner. The Bermuda Triangle has caused people to either fear the area, or to reject its legitimacy as a true mystery. Although there are outrageous…show more content…
This theory implies that there are strange magnetic fields from the bottom of the ocean causing the compass to malfunction. It also suggests that as you enter the Bermuda Triangle, it is virtually impossible to get out. If you are traveling by ship, the magnetic seafloor will pull the ship in almost immediately. If it is a plane, the same effect will happen. A magnetic seafloor would lead to compass variation. Magnetic and absolute North are not the same which implies that the north where a compass focuses and irrefutably the geographic north which is the north post are unique. So ships need to have modification for this effect to keep to the correct bearing. Be that as it may, in the Bermuda Triangle, there is a restricted strip where both these North 's turned into the same. Some claim that such compass variation could have been the reason for deadly mischances as boats neglected to decide the correct way. One U.S. coast guard came forward and said, “The majority of disappearances can be attributed to the area’s unique environmental features. First, the ‘Devil’s Triangle’ is one of the two places on Earth that a magnetic compass does point towards true north. Normally, it points toward magnetic north. The difference between the two is known as compass variation. The amount of variation changes by as much as 20 degrees as one circumnavigates the Earth. If this compass variation or error is not compensated for, a navigator could find himself far off course and in deep trouble.” Although these are some valid points, there are certain explanations that debunks that theory. The first reason is, even though the difference in a magnetic seafloor could affect an airplane, it would not affect a ship nearly as much. The second reason is simply lack of evidence. There have been no supporting details of this theory. It is simply just an assumption. The only theory that is not an
