Last year marked the 40th anniversary of the Bermuda Triangle mystery, and in December, we reported that we were “no closer to knowing the truth.” If you believe these findings, however, that’s no longer the case.
The truth behind all of the disappearances in the deadly space between Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda may be linked to sinkholes in Siberia and underwater methane explosions near Norway.
Researchers at the Trofimuk Institute discovered that mysterious sinkholes in Siberia are formed when high ground temperatures lead to the release of gasses. Those gasses get trapped by permafrost, causing explosions.
Scientists at the Arctic University of Norway discovered methane craters below the Barents Sea that probably formed in the same way. In theory, these methane craters could exist elsewhere in the Atlantic.
Russian geologist Igor Yeltsov believes that similar craters exist in the Bermuda Triangle. He speculates that when frozen methane melts and forms gas, it causes the ocean to heat up. This clash between liquid and gas might be to blame for rough, choppy conditions in the region.

I’ve been warning readers about the dangers of sinkholes for quite some time now, but even I couldn’t have anticipated this insane connection. I firmly believe that sinkholes are the root of all evil.
