“Columbus was amazed by all the gold and other metals (Columbus).” If he didn’t discover those metals, we wouldn’t have the building material we have today. It was a phenomenon when he discovered all of those different metals. Without those metals we wouldn’t have some of the important materials we use today. “Christopher Columbus went back to America three more times after discovering it the first time (History in the Headlines 1996-2014).” On Columbus’ third voyage to America he was being a fastidious governor, therefore he came back to Spain in a shackle. Everything he discovered in America helps us in our world today.
This is just one of the many mysteries that has taken place within the Bermuda Triangle. There are numerous speculations as to why this area of land causes so many accidents. Some say that it is the climate and nature of the ocean, while others say it is involved with paranormal activity. The Bermuda Triangle is outlined in the Atlantic Ocean that covers the areas of Miami, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda, hence the name it was given. As it is also called, the Devil’s Triangle, the total area is roughly about 3,900,000 km2 (“The Bermuda Triangle”).
They only wanted to further advance Spain in the world. Although I do not condone the way the Native Americans were treated, or killed, I believe that it would have happened sooner or later. These things are inevitable. Christopher Columbus traveled west of Spain believing he would land in India. He accomplished all three of his goals and eventually would be known as a hero to many.
Yes he discovered America ; Yes we have a holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the New World on October 12, 1492. But here are some reasons to why he's a evil man. Christopher Columbus mutilated and enslaved native people that he encountered on the Island soon to be called America.He encountered many different Natives when he Started to explore the new land he discovered. There were 60,000 people living on this island. Some of the Natives didn't even have weapons or even heard of that word before.So it was very easy for Christopher Columbus to take advantage
The Bermuda Triangle is located between Florida, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. (“The Bermuda Triangle”). It is called the Bermuda Triangle because its imaginary area looks like a triangle. (See Figure 1). It is also called the Devil’s Triangle because of all the terror and disappearance this place occasioned.
“More than 1,000 ships and planes have disappeared in the triangle area over the past five centuries and such mysterious incidents on the Atlantic continue to take place even at present days”(Bhattacharya). Even though thousands of lives are lost every year due to magnetic and supernatural forces, the Bermuda Triangle does not exist because the inclement weather in the Gulf causes ships and planes to disappear, and theorists fabricate the mystery to derive attention. The Bermuda Triangle is a mythical area where supposedly aircraft and boats simply disappear with unknown causes (“Bermuda Triangle”). The Bermuda triangle has consumed over 300 ships and 75 aircraft over the years and one of the disappearances that has been emphasized the most was, “On December 5, 1945, five U.S. bombers took off from a U.S. Naval Air Base in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and subsequently disappeared”(Barclay).
Some of these people suggest that there is an underwater base on the region or think that downed UFO’s is confused as vessels. On October 11, 1492 as I mention before Christopher Columbus sight a mysterious event going on the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, a light in the middle of the sea that later vanish and reappear several times, and going up and down in the sky this event makes you wonder, because since the beginning that man decided to explore the seas weird stuff is happening in there. The weirdest theory I have heard is the one of psychiatrist Dr. Kenneth McAll of Brook Lyndhurst in England, this man has the theory that the triangle is haunted by all the black slaves that were thrown out of the voyages coming to America that were later die in those
When he went to the sea he was helping in many trading voyages in the Mediterranean and Aegean seas. His voyage to the islands of Khios brought him as near as he would come to Asia. Supposedly, his first voyage to the Atlantic Ocean nearly cost him his life because the commercial fleet he was sailing with was attacked by French privateers off the coast of portugal. When the ship was burned it caused Columbus to have to swim to the Portuguese shore and make his way to Lisbon, Portugal. Of course Columbus participated in several other expeditions.
Although he did not find a water route to the Indies like he had intended, he found many valuable foods native to only the New World, and he found gold which became a high demand to search for among fellow explorers and conquistadors. His findings greatly increased his country’s economy, and later the New World offered a place for religious freedom from the Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Anglican church for anyone who wanted to chose a different denomination of Christianity. Columbus also started the Columbian Exchange, which allowed the newly discovered goods from the New World to be transported and traded within and around Europe. While Christopher Columbus made many advancements towards the evolution of Europe and sea routes for trade, I still consider him a villain due to the many lives that he took, because I feel that he could have made these same advancements for Europe, but without as much bloodshed as he
It is said that this area has compasses pointing to true north instead of the regular magnetic north. Investigations suggest that many original reports of strange incident in the Bermuda Triangle were exaggerated. Researchers think that the actual numbers of incidents in the area is similar to that of other parts of the ocean. Its reputation may scare most people, but the Triangle is actually part of a regularly sailed shipping lane with cruise ships and many other boats also recurrently sailing through the region. Aircrafts are also frequent in the area with both commercial and private planes commonly flying through the air
