The Bermuda Triangle or the Devil's Triangle as they call it is a triangular area in the Atlantic Ocean bounded at its points by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico. Stories have been told that many people, ships and planes have mysteriously vanished in this area. There are some skeptics who argue that the facts do not support the legend, that there is no mystery to be solved, and nothing that needs explaining.The number of wrecks in this area is not extraordinary, given its size, location and the amount of traffic it receives. Many of the ships and planes that have been identified as having disappeared mysteriously in the Bermuda Triangle were not in the Bermuda Triangle at all. Investigations to date have not produced scientific evidence of any unusual phenomena involved in the disappearances. Thus, any explanation, including so-called scientific ones in terms of methane gas being released from the ocean floor, magnetic disturbances, etc., are not needed. The real mystery is how the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery at all. Many movies have been made about the Bermuda Triangle, I have watched some of them. Must have been movies which contributed to its being a mystery.:-)

As you said, investigations to date have not produced scientific evidence of any unusual phenomena involved in the disappearances of ships and planes. But to this day the Bermuda Triangle is deferred to for the same reason?? Deadly Triangle? Many people say it is still a 'Devil's Triangle'. Thanks for sharing your thoughts....
