The enigma of the Bermuda triangle is a time old tale and it is often even called the Devil's triangle. There are tales of a sea monster living in that area, extraterrestrial actions, etc., happening in that region that cause ships and planes to disappear. Do the tales and myths surrounding the mysterious affects of the Bermuda Triangle have any validity? I have read that there are very erratic waves in that area and strong magnetic effects. But is it just these reasons that have given way to all these tales or is there a deeper scientific answer?

Not sure of the Mythological nature of your question.
The Bermuda Triangle is a modern thing dating from 1945 and lost of 5 airships. They totally and simply vanished. No wreckage. No bodies. Silence. By the way Spielberg used that event in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
But anyway, put the Bermuda Triangle in the usual basket:

  • Area 51
  • Nessie
  • Crop circles
  • Nostradamus/Saint Malachy/Paco Rabanne prophecies There is dozen of such hoaxes and the modern Internet so love hoaxes!
  • Well, folktales seem to be on-topic here, and these crazy conspiracy theories and hoaxes tend to shade into that realm. – Spencer Sep 12 '16 at 14:44

    @Spencer I can debunk. It is said that there is 2 places in the world where the needle of a compass points to the true north instead of the magnetic one. Obviously the Triangle and The devil's Sea in Japan. Well first the magnetic pole is ever changing. Second. This is known as magnetic declination and it is not the same absolutely everywhere on Earth. magnetic-declination.com This map show you 2 cities separated from 2km can have 1° difference in north pointing... The Haley map (from 1700+) shows you this is a well old known thing. – Gibet Sep 12 '16 at 16:02

    Yes well, if this ever gets moved to Skeptics Stack Exchange I'll upvote it. – Spencer Sep 12 '16 at 23:54
