An old tale about the mysterious Bermuda Triangle circulating in paranormal circles was recently revived. However, a hoax buster site points out there is no evidence that scientists have discovered two giant underwater crystal pyramids at the centre of the Bermuda Triangle.

Various theories to explain the disappearance of 8,127 people in the Bermuda Triangle had been made in the past, including the occurrence of methane gas explosions to explain why planes and ships passing the area are lost. Another theory forwarded by Dr Meyer Verlag, an oceanographer, is that giant crystal pyramids are the cause.

Healthcareaboveall claims in an article published on Oct 5 that Verlag allegedly found the pyramids, thrice bigger than the Great Pyramid of Cheops, using a sonar. He presented his discovery and revealed the coordinates of the pyramids in a press conference in Bahamas.

While scientists could also help determine if the pyramids are indeed made of crystal-like substances, Verlag says the technology he used is not available to modern science. He believes the pyramids hide secrets and knowing what is inside the centre could provide more information on the mysterious disappearances of jets and vessels passing the triangle.

But the dubious website says it was Ray Brown, a doctor of naturopathy from Mesa, Arizona, who was the first to discover the pyramids in 1969. Brown was reportedly diving with friends in the area when he allegedly found a massive structure on the ocean floor in front of him and silhouetted against the sun-filtered water.

Even readers of the website shared their doubts on the wild claims made. Alex Georgopoulos says he could not take the report seriously for lack of photos. John Petters also questions the ability of men to dive 2,000 metres.

Babs Kruisdijk could not find any logic in the story. Thomas Boys sought the coordinates, while Glen McDonald minces no words in saying the claim is “pure nonsense” and “a lot of crap.”

Snopes, a hoax-busting website, points out the rumors of pyramids date back to the 1960s, citing the 1980 clip from a video report on the Bimini Wall, an underwater rock formation near North Bimini Island in the Bahamas. But it adds that a storm destroyed Brown’s photographic equipment which made it impossible to examine his claim.

“The only mystery here is how scientists around the world could have been ‘rocked’ by something that they’ve never seen, and which exists only in fabricated paranormal pseudo-documentaries,” Snopes writes.
