Ocean Mysteries

The story of Atlantis was first told in two of Plato's(a philophiser in Greece) dialogues the Timaeus and the Critias, written about 330 B.C. Atlantis is now thought as a peaceful utopia. The character said that it was destroyed by an earthquake or tsunami. The story claims that Atlantis was by the Pillars of Hercules.

Mysteries of the Ocean By: Cassie Repole


According to Plato the story orignally came from Ancient Egytian priests. There have been dozens of locations proposed for the Atlantis. Some are of archaeological works others have been made by psychic or other pseudoscientific people. Divers had found evidence of roads and large columns, some with concentric spiral motifs, in the exact place described by the Greek philosopher Plato", on the botom of the ocean. That is the only evidence that Atlantis was real.

The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a loosely defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. According to the US Navy the Bermuda Triangle does not exist. Writers have used a number of supernatural concepts to explain the events. One explanation pins the blame on leftover technology from the mythical lost continent of Atlantis. There are a few ideas that we have of why planes and ships crash in the Bermuda triangle. The first idea is that it is one of two known areas on the earth where a compass points towards the true north and not the magnetic north as we normally see with compasses. The difference between true and magnetic north can be as much as 20 degrees. Another factor that can cause trouble in the Bermuda triangle is the patterns of the Gulf Stream.

Sometimes connected to the Atlantis story is the submerged rock formation known as the Bimini Road off the island of Bimini in the Bahamas, which is in the Triangle by some definitions.

The Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning of April, 15 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK to New York City, US. The titanic weighed 52,310 tons and only had 16 lifeboats when they were on the maiden voyage. The Titanic sank on April 15, 1912 in the North Atlantic Ocean about 400 miles south of Newfoundland, Canada. When the Titanic was found it was 13.2 miles away from where it sank.
