UNVEILING THE REALITY: THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE BEYOND MYTHS

Updated: Jun 2, 2023

LARRY KUSCHE - In his book "The Bermuda Triangle Mystery: Solved" published in 1975, Larry Kusche challenged the assertions made by Charles Berlitz and other authors regarding the Bermuda Triangle. Kusche conducted an investigation that revealed numerous errors, contradictions, and exaggerations in their claims. By comparing Berlitz's statements with the testimonies of witnesses and participants in the incidents, Kusche identified discrepancies. He provided examples where crucial details were omitted, such as the case of Donald Crowhurst, a yachtsman who disappeared during a round-the-world voyage. Despite ample evidence indicating the true circumstances of Crowhurst's disappearance, it was portrayed as a mystery. Kusche also highlighted instances that were erroneously associated with the Bermuda Triangle but actually occurred elsewhere. To conduct his research, Kusche utilized various techniques, including examining newspaper archives from the dates of the reported incidents. He discovered records of events that could have been relevant, such as unusual weather conditions, which were not addressed in the accounts of disappearances. Based on his research, Kusche came to the conclusion that the Bermuda Triangle did not have a disproportionately high frequency of missing ships and planes compared to other oceanic regions. He emphasized that, especially in light of the area's vulnerability to tropical cyclones, disappearances within the region were not overly unusual or improbable. Berlitz and other authors were also criticized by Kusche for neglecting or falsifying meteorological records, frequently depicting disappearances in calm weather when storms were observed. In summation, Kusche came to the conclusion that the myth of the Bermuda Triangle was a created enigma that was spread by authors who, whether consciously or unconsciously, resorted to misunderstandings, flawed logic, and sensationalism.


COMPASS DISPARITIES - The Bermuda Triangle is often associated with the phrase "compass problems." While there is no concrete evidence of unusual local magnetic anomalies in the area, some individuals speculate about their existence. Experienced navigators are well aware of the natural magnetic variations that compasses exhibit in relation to the magnetic poles. True north, or geographic north, and magnetic north align only in a limited number of locations. In the United States, for example, this alignment was observed along a line stretching from Wisconsin to the Gulf of Mexico as of the year 2000.


THE GULF STREAM - A important surface current driven by thermohaline circulation is the Gulf Stream, commonly referred to as the Florida Current. It starts out in the Gulf of Mexico and travels across the Straits of Florida before entering the North Atlantic. It functions as a unique flow within the water, much like a river, and is able to move floating things. The highest speed of its surface is roughly 2 m/s (6.6 ft/s). The current might carry something away from its reported location, like a tiny plane landing on the sea or a boat having engine difficulty.

HUMAN OVERSIGHTS - Official investigations often attribute the loss of aircraft or vessels to human error. In the case of businessman Harvey Conover and his sailing vessel, Revonoc, it is believed that Conover's stubbornness played a role in the tragic outcome. On January 1, 1958, Conover's yacht was lost when he sailed directly into a powerful hurricane south of Florida.


HAZARDOUS WEATHER & METHANE HYDRATES - Hurricanes are highly potent tropical storms that have historically resulted in significant loss of life and extensive economic damage. The first recorded instance of a catastrophic hurricane occurred in 1502 when Francisco de Bobadilla's Spanish fleet capsized. Numerous incidents associated with the Bermuda Triangle have been linked to these storms. Many Atlantic hurricanes change direction off the Eastern Seaboard and traverse through the Triangle region. Prior to the advent of weather satellites, ships navigating the area often had limited or no advance warning of approaching hurricanes. One proposed explanation for the disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle involves the presence of substantial reserves of methane hydrates, a type of natural gas, on the continental shelves. Experiments conducted in Australia have demonstrated that bubbles released from these deposits can decrease water density, leading to the sinking of a scaled-down model ship. In the event that any wreckage resurfaces, the fast-moving Gulf Stream would quickly disperse it. It is theorized that periodic methane eruptions, also known as "mud volcanoes," may create areas of frothy water that lose their buoyancy, potentially causing ships to sink suddenly and unexpectedly if they encounter these zones.
