Scary Places :: The Bermuda Triangle

You won't find the Bermuda Triangle on a map but the name can still strike fear into the hearts of some peeps. The Bermuda Triangle's three corners extend from the island of Bermuda to Miami, Florida to San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is in this area that a high number of unexplained disappearances of planes, ships and people have taken place.

Bermuda Triangle - What Happened to Flight 19?

One of the most famous disappearances is Flight 19. On December 5, 1945, five US Navy Avenger bombers mysteriously vanished while on a routine training mission. The flight was led by Lieutenant Charles Taylor, who kept in contact on the radio until nothing could be heard. The rescue plane that was sent to search for them never made it back either. Six aircrafts and 27 men vanished without a trace, or so it seems. Did Flight 19 simply crash into the Atlantic Ocean or did something more mysterious happen? And where did the rescue plane go?


Bermuda Triangle - What Happened Aboard the Marie Celeste?

Some people believe the Bermuda Triangle extends farther than the outlined area of Bermuda, Miami and San Juan. If this is the case then another interesting disappearance is worth mentioning. The Marie Celeste left New York Harbor on November 5, 1872 with a cargo of industrial alcohol. Passengers on board the ship were Captain Benjamin Spooner Briggs, his wife and two year-old daughter and eight crew members. On December 5th of that year, another ship found the Marie Celeste adrift in the Atlantic Ocean. All the passengers and one lifeboat were missing. The cargo and personal belongings were left behind on the ship. It was clear that the boat had been abandoned quickly so not enough supplies would have been on the lifeboat. Why the Marie Celeste was abandoned is a mystery.


What's Going On at the Bermuda Triangle?

It is said that more than 50 ships and 20 planes have gone down in the Bermuda Triangle (also called the Devil's Triangle) during the last century. The deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean lies within the Bermuda Triangle, which might explain why some planes and ships are never seen again. More than a few people think the Bermuda triangle is full of UFO activity. In fact, some think that aliens have abducted missing planes and ships. Other people believe the area has several vortexes (usually a swirl of water that sucks in everything near it) that transport the lost planes and ships to another time and place. Then there are always logical explanations for the disappearances like weather, lack of experience and strong currents.

Anxiety isn't something that can be described as a feeling or emotion. It is instead almost like a rain cloud. I use this rain cloud analogy because it doesn't fit the base of a shadow nor demon. Have you ever seen one of those rain clouds on cartoons that follow people around where ever they go? Anxiety is similar to that however unlike a shadow you will always know it's there and whenever you approach a social situation the rain gets heavier, and as you become weaker from surviving the heavy rain sometimes you take the easy way out and avoid the social situation altogether. You eventually feel helpless to the rain and give in, you avoid any social situation possible and begin to lose all skill in that area. Little did you know doing this to avoid heavy rain will instead set you up for a storm. A storm of awkwardness and low self esteem and that's when the dark thoughts seep in.  However there will be those people who will protect you for the storm, or those people who would be there if you needed them to and if you put in just a little effort you can evade the storm and though that little rain cloud may always linger around you, you will never forget about your experience in the storm, from that you grow as a person and eventually you will accept and laugh about this little rain cloud. You will accept yourself for who you are and push yourself beyond your boundaries to become the person you wanted to be. This person may not be perfect but if you are happy with the person you are then none of that should matter. None of the awkwardness, none of the mistakes and none of the imperfections should matter.  The only thing that does matter is the fact that you are the person you want to be. The person you are happy being. (Just my experience with anxiety /: ) I had a lot to get off of my chest)

We all know that the symbols and colors of God are only white. And devils color is red and black which stand for danger. I came to ask why did Satan choose two colors and mixed it together to make it scared and danger? And my another question is why did we always obey devils work and ignored Gods work? On my own mind i can say that is girls is the most human that do devils work, 95% and they do God work 5% But we guys can only do 40% of devils work and 50% for God.      Please if its false or true  story you can drop your comment below ........................................................... ...................................................................... ....................................................................................   What i understand in all these is   that  Satan is greedy and he came to destroy the world for those who give them chance like Nigeria have already give them chance, so is there for you  to choose one of this two masters God or Satan, because i know you cannot serve two masters at the same time;     Please give your vote with choice. .......................................................... ...................................................... .................................................. ............................................................... ...................................................................                             Thanks for your cooperation and thanks for your understanding                                                                       Sign by Desmond
