Top 5 Most Mysterious Geographical Triangles In The World
Nature is not only beautiful but it is also mysterious. Humans are stewards of the Earth and we use nature as a source of power and resource. As, we are stewards of God's creation, our dominion cannot exceed the boundaries of God's law. Whatever is beyond our limit is mysterious to us. We are highly advanced in technology today but still there are many mysteries associated with nature we haven't solved. Why? Think about it seriously. According to me there is only one possibility and that is someone or something didn't want us to solve these mysteries. We can call this someone or something either God or aliens or even both. Why should they do this? Because currently we are not developed or matured enough to grasp the truth hidden behind these mysteries. I know most of you will not agree with me because it seems logically impossible but I can't come up with any other hypothesis. The most mysterious aspect of nature are the oceans. Life first evolved in oceans but even after millions of years, we are not able to solve the mysteries associated with oceans. We have explored the surface of oceans but miles beneath the surface, where sunlight cannot penetrate exists an eerie world full of darkness and mysterious creatures. Lets take a look at some of the most mysterious geographical triangles in the world.
I think everyone is familiar with Bermuda Triangle and the mysteries that surround it. It is also known as the "Devil's Triangle" and is located in the Western part of the North Atlantic Ocean. It is an triangle shaped area bounded by points in Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico. This infamous triangle first captured the attention of people in 1945 when a squadron of five Navy Avenger aeroplanes disappeared on a training flight over this triangle. For decades, people all over the world are perplexed over unexplained disappearances of ships, planes, and people in this triangle. So what is behind all these disappearances? People have come up with many theories such as aliens abducting humans for study; some others believe all these happenings are due to the influence of the lost continent of Atlantis and even a few think that Bermuda triangle is a vortex which sucks objects into it and sends them to another dimension. So, among all these theories which one is true? It is really difficult to tell because nothing has been proved yet.
Scientifically there are two reasons behind this. The first one is magnetic variations. In this triangle, a magnetic compass doesn't point towards true north but it point towards magnetic north. So, this magnetic variation can cause a navigator to change course for the worse. Apart from the unique environmental features of this triangle nothing has been attributed to this error in compass. The second reason is methane hydrates. Deep below the surface of the Bermuda Triangle lies methane hydrates and it indicates enormous eruptions of methane bubbles. Methane gas can reduce the density of water. So when a ship passes over this methane bubble, it immediately loses its buoyancy and sinks perilously.
Nothing has been proved scientifically, so Bermuda Triangle still remains a mystery. So, the possibility of aliens, pirates, the underwater city of Atlantis, and time vortex or electronic fog can't be completely ignored.
The Bridgewater Triangle is an area of about 200 square miles within Southeastern Massachusetts in the United States. This triangle is world's one of the most popular paranormal hot spots. Why? Simply because most of the sci-fi and fantasy creatures like aliens, Bigfoot, UFOs, Thunderbirds, giant snakes, and balls of fire have been reported from this site. The most terrifying and mysterious part of this triangle is a 6,000 acre vast wetland which is known as the Hockomock Swamp. Hockomock means devil’s swamp or place where evil spirits dwell. In the year 1971, a police Sergeant named Thomas Downy was confronted by a tremendous winged creature over six feet tall with a wingspan of eight to 12 feet in this triangle. Sightings of Bigfoot and a red-eyed dog which looks like a hellhound have been reported in the past. In 1997, a very large triangular UFO was spotted in Bridgewater. Grotesque mutilation of cattle and other livestock have been also found in this area which strongly indicates the presence of paranormal activity. As this place is devil's workshop, some people credit these animal mutilations to satanic cults but nothing has been proved so far. Even if the satanic cults are responsible for animal mutilations then who does these fantasy creatures belong to? Officially Bridgewater Triangle is not an vile vortex area like the Bermuda Triangle but the increasing rate of paranormal phenomenons make this triangle a little bit more spookier than Bermuda Triangle.
Bennington Triangle is an area located in the Southwestern Vermont. This triangle is centred around Glastenbury Mountain. It is also known as the "Triangle of Doom". Why? Because a number of persons went missing from this area between 1920 and 1950. Went missing is one thing but these people disappeared from the face of the earth. They disappeared without a single clue being left behind. A majority of disappearances occurred within a five year period between 1945 and 1950. This most well known Bennington Triangle disappearances began with a man named Middie Rivers. He was a mountain guide and on November 12, 1945, when he was guiding his group back to their camp, he got disappeared and was never seen again. The most important thing to be taken into consideration is that Middie was 75 years old when he disappeared. So, he was definitely familiar with this locality, so there was no chance of getting lost. The police searched for him but nothing was ever found. Again the next year in 1946, an 18-year-old student named Paula Welden disappeared from this area without any trace. The most strangest disappearance happened in 1949 when a man named James E. Tetford vanished from a moving bus. His destination was Bennington and people saw him boarding the bus but when the bus reached Bennington, James was gone. These unsolved disappearances gave birth to a number rumours and theories. The most prominent theory is about an Indian legend which tells of a "rock that swallows" those who step on it. Involvement of ghosts, Bigfoot, and aliens has also been attributed to these disappearances. This triangle still remains a mystery and the presence of Glastenbury Mountain makes it nearly impossible to solve.
Lake Michigan Triangle is not as popular as the Bermuda Triangle but it has a rich history of unexplained paranormal activity. This triangle is also notorious for strange disappearances of ships and aeroplanes, ghostships, and even UFO sightings. The most well-known and well-documented mystery happened on April 28, 1937 when Captain George Donnor was heading in freighter O.M. McFarland to Port Washington, Wisconsin with 9,800 tons of coal. According to the story, George retired to his cabin and gave instructions to be awakened as the ship neared Port Washington. Some three hours later as the McFarland neared her destination, the second mate went to the Captain's cabin to awaken him but George was not in his cabin. The sailors searched the whole vessel but he was never found. It is believed that McFarland was in the Michigan triangle when George disappeared. Thirteen years later on June 23, 1950, a Northwestern Airlines flight 2501 took off from New York with a crew of 3 and 55 passengers bound for Minneapolis. Due to bad weather conditions the pilot was forced to change the course of the plane and took it over Lake Michigan and the last radio contact with the plane at 3,500 feet was recorded at this point but after that nothing was heard about this flight. The search team found fragments of human body and some light debris but till today neither the plane's wreckage nor complete human bodies have been found.
The Devil's Sea is also known as the "Dragon's Triangle". It is located in the Pacific around the Japanese island of Miyake, about 100 kilometres south of Tokyo. According to the ancient Japanese legends, Dragons existed on this island. Like most of the geographical triangles, this triangle is also responsible for mysterious disappearances. This area was officially declared as a danger zone after Japan lost five military vessels with carrying a total of more than 700 sailors during the peacetime years between 1952 and 1954. This triangle is one of the "12 Devil's graveyards around the world" which means that this area is an vile vortex. Like the rest of the vile vortices, this triangle also has variations in electro-magnetic fields and often this reason is attributed for peculiar physical anomalies and unexplained phenomenons. However, the mystery around this area still remains and the presence of aliens and even dragons is also a possibility.
