The Bermuda Triangle, also known as Hodoo Sea, Devil’s Triangle, and Limbo of the Lost, has been the source of many conspiracy theories. And most of the theories revolved around the mysterious disappearances throughout the years, ranging from notions that fire-crystals from the lost city of Atlantis were responsible, to alien invasions.

People love a good extraordinary story, and boy does the Bermuda Triangle lend itself to those. However, one scientist is here to say all allegations that the Bermuda Triangle is somehow enchanted are false.

Karl Kruszelnicki is declaring that all the disappearances can be attributed simply to human error, very bad weather, and the fact that that area of the Atlantic Ocean is a very busy one. It would have to be, as it also happens to be a very big one.

The Bermuda Triangle covers a 700,000 square-kilometer (270,000 square-mile) swathe of the ocean. Kruszelnicki insists that the numbers of ships and planes that go missing over the Bermuda Triangle are comparatively the same as anywhere else in the world.

Kruszelnicki also debunks the most famous Bermuda Triangle story and the one that perhaps started it all: Flight 19. What does he have to say about this story that sends shivers down most people's spines?

Well, it's filled with glaring inaccuracies. But if you want to find out what they are, you have to watch the video for that. We definitely won't spoil it for you.
