  • 2. The Bermuda TriangleReading and DiscussionThe Bermuda Triangle, an area of the Atlantic Ocean, is a legend of its own. The waysthat the boundaries of the Bermuda Triangle are defined vary with different writers.Some authors allege that the Bermuda Triangle is shaped like a trapezoid and includesthe Straits of Florida, the Bahamas, the Caribbean islands, and the waters to the east ofthe Azores. Others include the Gulf of Mexico as being part of the Bermuda Triangle.The area included in the Bermuda Triangle has ships crossing through it daily. It is oneof the most heavily used shipping lanes in the world. Many cruise ships and pleasureships regularly sail in this area. Many airplanes also fly over it because it is a heavilytraveled route for commercial and private flights. The Bermuda Triangle is sometimescalled the Devil’s Triangle, because many planes and ships have disappeared there.While some attribute these disappearances to human error, natural disasters, andequipment failure, others attribute them to the paranormal. Paranormal is a term thatdescribes unusual experiences that lack a scientific explanation.The first mention of the Bermuda Triangle is in an article written by E.V.W. Jones onSeptember 16, 1950, published through the Associated Press. Two years later, anarticle by George X. Sand detailed the loss of several planes and ships within theBermuda Triangle. Sand’s article was the first to describe the triangular area in whichthese losses took place. Other authors wrote on the paranormal nature of the area.Some of these were: John Wallace Spencer, Charles Berlitz, and Richard Winer.Lawrence David Kusche, a research librarian from Arizona State University,challenged those who wrote about the Bermuda Triangle as if it had some sort ofparanormal explanation or power. Kusche wrote a book called “The Bermuda TriangleMystery: Solved”. His book detailed inaccuracies in the previous accounts andattempted to explain the disappearances rationally. His book was an attempt to provethat there was nothing paranormal about the Bermuda Triangle.Kusche’s book explained that the number of ships and planes reported missing in theBermuda Triangle was not proportionally greater than any other part of the ocean. Healso said that the area was frequented by tropical storms, which could easily explainmany of the disappearances. He concluded that the legend of the Bermuda Trianglewas a mystery manufactured by writers using faulty reasoning. But some still believe theBermuda Triangle is filled with paranormal activity, and supernatural concepts havebeen used to explain different events that have occurred in the area. One explanationargues that the Bermuda Triangle is affected by the technology of the lost continent ofAtlantis, and others even attribute the disappearances to UFOs.Despite the many paranormal explanations for disappearances within the BermudaTriangle, there are many natural explanations as well, including deliberate acts ofdestruction such as piracy, human error, and the effects of the Gulf Stream.
