The latest theory and speculation about Bermuda Triangle is that there are multiple Bermuda Triangle-like zones on Earth. Conspiracy theories have been a part and parcel of mankind’s journey on earth. Every unexplained event or a natural occurring has always had an unscientific theory explaining it. These theories have been knowingly or unknowingly ingrained in the minds of our forefathers to our parents all the way through to our generation and possibly to the next.
With the 21st century world that we live in, the developments in science and technology have taken us beyond the realm of our solar system, our galaxy, all the way into theories about multiple universes and dimensions. Today, the scientists are working on solving equations about wormholes and inter-galactic travel. However, there are people in the world who disapprove the simple facts as we know them about the universe and genuinely believe in something unscientific.
Though science strives to explain every unexplained question in the world and the universe with logic and raw proof, there are still certain concepts or theories that remain mystically unexplained. Questions that have been and still are unanswered. One of these concepts or theories is about Bermuda Triangle.
The Bermuda Triangle is a section of our planet on the eastern sea front of the U.S. The Bermuda Triangle area, also known as Devil’s Triangle is the section of the North Atlantic Ocean situated in the space separating Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda Islands. It is said that many ships and airplanes have simply disappeared while flying or sailing over the Bermuda Triangle. Hundreds of hair-raising experiences have also been recorded by sailors and pilots. Bermuda Triangle was cited as the reason responsible for the loss of tens of ships and airplanes in the twentieth century. The reasons and explanations behind this range from alien abductions to a very strong magnetic field in the Bermuda Triangle. Another theory is that the lost city of Atlantis is hidden under the sea floor of the Bermuda Triangle and the advanced technology of Atlantis causes the aircrafts or ships to lose control and crash in the Bermuda Triangle. Could there be multiple Bermuda Triangle-like zones on Earth?
The frequency in the number of airline crashes following the grotesque disappearance of a commercial jet along with its passengers in South-East Asia have given rise to speculations. There are numerous bizarre conspiracy theories floating around about the region of the jetliner’s disappearance. Rumors about the jetliner being abducted by the aliens or it being the next Bermuda Triangle-like zone of the world have been doing the rounds. Taiwan’s TransAsia plane crashed in Taipei on February 4, 2015. It has restarted speculations about the conspiracy theory that Bermuda Triangle had flipped to the exact opposite side of the globe. It is being said that the Bermuda Triangle has flipped over from the Atlantic Ocean to an area in the South China Sea near South-East Asia. The reversal of earth’s magnetic poles which the scientists have warned about is being cited as the reason for this.
Not long after the freak disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 which lost contact exactly above the South China Sea on March 8, 2014, the theory of Bermuda Triangle-like zone was being spoken about. These rumors got more takers when the international search groups using some of the most advanced equipment returned empty-handed. There is still no trace of the debris or any of the 239 passengers on their way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur. When questioned about flight MH370’s disappearance, a politician from Malaysia had advocated the Bermuda Triangle theory when he said that it has been confirmed that the Bermuda Triangle had been found in the region including the South China Sea and the Vietnam waters. He had spoken about unconfirmed reports that mapping instruments like the compass did not work effectively in that region often misguiding the planes.
Another aircraft, an Airbus A320-200, AirAsia Flight QZ8501 carrying 162 people crashed into the adjoining Java Sea. The jetliner was on its way to Singapore from Surabaya, Indonesia. Earlier, it was reported that stormy weather was responsible for the technical failure and eventual crash of the plane. The Indonesian Aviation minister however said that during the final moments of its flight, the plane ascended at an abnormal speed leading to the loss of all communication with the air traffic control and an eventual crash. The only difference about the other two jetliner’s crash is that the debris and the black boxes have been found.
It is very eerie that these three jetliners have crashed in such a short span of time in the same region. However, any speculation at this point of time would be uncalled for. The theory about multiple Bermuda Triangle-like zones on earth would only cause confusion and might even spread panic. The final scientific evidence would be found in the flight data recorders. As for the MH370 jetliner, we could only hope that the search agencies would be able to find the debris and the black box soon.
