A big story floating around the interwebs this week has been the alleged discovery of giant crystal pyramids beneath the Bermuda Triangle. Now, of course there’s no proof (yet), and there’s no real mainstream media coverage of this story (yet), and the articles out there all seem to be the same article, verbatim (see below). Most of the sites covering this story seem to be weird fringe websites and conspiracy theorists (e.g., MSNBC). So I figured hey, we might as well get in on this too. We’re not really weird enough to be in the same category as those other sites, thankfully, but, behold: the story of the crystal pyramids of the Bermuda Triangle. Or something.
‘The Bermuda Triangle: mysterious, unworldly, sometimes deadly. For decades intrepid researchers delved into the maze of mysteries hidden deep within this most enigmatic place on Earth.
Some speculate the bizarre time anomalies, disappearances and weird phenomena can be explained by natural occurences. Others are insistent that relics of an advanced, unknown culture left behind fantastic technology…great energy machines that literally warp spacetime and open portals to other realities.
Now American and French explorers have made a monumental discovery: a partially translucent, crystal-like pyramid rising from the Caribbean seabed— its origin, age and purpose completely unknown.’
A gigantic structure, perhaps larger than the Great Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt, and initially identified by a doctor in the 1960s, has been independently verified by diving teams from France and the U.S.
The discovery has rocked scientists around the world. Will they rush to investigate it? No, they’re more likely to studiously ignore it. If pressed, they’ll officially position themselves as highly skeptical—especially in light of the potential ramifications.
The pyramid could confirm some engineers’ contentions that pyramids were originally created as massive power sources, support the claim that the ancient city-state of Atlantis did exist, or even provide answers to the mysterious goings-on that have been recorded since the 19th Century in the region of the Atlantic dubbed the Bermuda Triangle.
According to the history, the pyramid was accidentally discovered during 1968 by a doctor of naturopathy, Ray Brown of Mesa, Arizona.
Brown was in the Caribbean on vacation and making dives with friends in a region off the Bahamas known as “the Tongue of the Ocean.” The area acquired that name because a tongue-shaped portion of the seabed extends out from the island before sharply dropping off into much greater depths.
When relating his discovery, the doctor explained he became separated from his diving friends underwater. While attempting to rejoin them he came upon a massive structure rising from the ocean floor: a black, hulking object silhouetted against the lighter sun-filtered water. The object was shaped like a pyramid.
Because he was low on air, he didn’t spend much time investigating the pyramid, but did find a strange crystal sphere.
He brought it to the surface with him and later when the ancient crystal was studied researchers were astonished by its properties.
Blah blah blah bling bling bling blah.
The article goes on, at some length, talking about how these pyramids might be the cause of the strange anomalies and energy fluctuations in the Bermuda Triangle. And how this might be proof of Atlantis. I think it’s still too early to tell, but this story is really reminding me of the whole Baltic Sea UFO that looked like the Millennium Falcon that turned out to be nothing. Of course, it would be really interesting if it turned out to be real, but as always, I won’t be holding my breath.
Thanks to my brother Keith for letting me know about this story
