Popular culture has attributed various disappearances [in the Bermuda Triangle] to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings. Documented evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were spurious, inaccurately reported, or embellished by later authors.
Can you name a topic you were passionate about exploring until someone crushed your dreams with the unrelenting heartless introduction of skepticism? For me it happens to be the Bermuda Triangle. I was fascinated with this subject. I wanted to learn everything I could about it. In the 5th grade my friends and I even did a multimedia book report presentation on one of the more famous BT stories. Then reality came a’knockin’ and extinguished that passion. It hurt, but it was a lesson I still think about today when exposed to nonsense.
Yesterday I noticed a trending topic on Facebook for the Bermuda Triangle and I became frustrated. Why are people still talking about this? I assumed it was due to some paranormal story still trying to keep the legend alive. I complained about it and was shocked to learn that some people still entertain this myth! I even encountered some attitude from a guy who attended my middle school.
