We have all heard stories about the Bermuda Triangle. It’s an area in the Atlantic Ocean between Puerto Rico, Bermuda, and Miami, Florida. According to legend, ships and aircraft disappear inside it without a trace. The legend as we know it started in 1945 when Flight 19, five Navy planes on a training mission, vanished mysteriously in that area. Pseudoscientists have jumped into action to try and explain these disappearances. Some claim alien abductions or paranormal magnetic fields are responsible.
There is no evidence to support that there is anything mysterious about the Bermuda Triangle. The amount of disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle is not significant when compared to other areas. Also, a substantial amount of the Bermuda Triangle’s history is embellished by writers. Some of the reported disappearances did not even take place in the Bermuda Triangle. The area is also known to be a hotspot for tropical storms, which could be contributed to the disappearances. Strange occurrences are rarely all that strange.
