The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle isn't any more likely to cause a mysterious disappearance than anywhere else.

Defying 70 years of fevered speculation, a skeptical scientist has dared to declare that the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle has been ‘solved' by claiming there was no mystery in the first place.

Karl Kruszelnicki has insisted on the reason why so many ships and planes vanish without a trace in the area between Bermuda, Florida, Puerto Rico is nothing to do with aliens or fire-crystals from the lost city of Atlantis.

Instead, the Australian scientist ‘revealed', the high number of disappearances is explained by nothing more supernatural than plain old human error plus bad weather and the fact that lots of planes and ships enter that area of the Atlantic Ocean in the first place.

So, said Mr. Kruszelnicki, when you then compare the number of disappearances to a large number of ships and planes passing through the Bermuda Triangle, you find there is nothing out of the ordinary about the area at all.
