The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under what some people consider mysterious conditions. The question is whether these incidents are paranormal or just plain normal? The boundaries of the triangle cover the Straits of Florida, the Bahamas and the entire Caribbean island area and the Atlantic east to the Azores. At first glance many of the incidents in the Bermuda Triangle appear to have no logical explanation. Authorities on this subject say much of the information given for these incidents are inaccurately reported, embellished and sometimes completely false. People may do such things to add to the mystery and mystique of the triangle. There are plenty of reports of horrible losses in the Bermuda Triangle, one of the more famous of these incidents is "Flight 19". Flight 19 is the loss of five Navy TBM Avenger torpedo bomber airplanes on December 5, 1945.This is a photo of five US Navy Avengers similar to the planes flown on Flight 19.
Some of the assumptions about the disappearance of Flight 19 include the possible capture by extraterrestrials, government cover-ups, and even invisible time warps. My point of view on the majority of the incidents that have taken place in the Bermuda Triangle is that almost all of them can be attributed to something paranormal or something normal. It really is up to each person's interpretation of the events that took place in each individual incident. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8KXhT9tsnQ
The popular media and self-help industry is rife with extraordinary claims. Alien experimentation, psychic detectives, mediums, ESP, extreme therapies and miracle products are all examples of how pseudoscience and the paranormal have become prevalent, popular and even an extremely lucrative enterprise. The majority of these examples defy the basic laws of science, logic and common sense yet they appeal to a large number of people. Here we will use science, specifically a psychological perspective to explore these popular theories and claims, and learn to think critically in order to be able to constructively evaluate them.
