The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a region of the northwestern Atlantic Ocean in which a number of aircraft and surface vessels have disappeared. Some people have claimed that these disappearances fall beyond the boundaries of human error or acts of nature. Some of these disappearances have been attributed to the paranormal, a suspension of the laws of physics, or activity by extraterrestrial beings by popular culture. Though a substantial documentation exists showing numerous incidents to have been inaccurately reported or embellished by later authors, and numerous official agencies have gone on record as stating the number and nature of disappearances to be similar to any other area of ocean, many have remained unexplained despite considerable investigation.

History: Fiction or Science? Chronology volumes 1–7 The New Chronology is a fringe theory regarded by the majority of the scientific community as pseudo-history , which argues that the conventional chronology of Middle Eastern and European history is fundamentally flawed, and that events attributed the civilizations of the Roman Empire , Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt actually occurred during the Middle Ages , more than a thousand years later. The central concepts of the New Chronology are derived from the ideas of Russian scholar Nikolai Morozov (1854-1946), [ 1 ] although work by French scholar Jean Hardouin (1646-1729) can be viewed as an earlier predecessor. [ 2 ] However, the New Chronology is most commonly associated with Russian mathematician Anatoly Fomenko (b. 1945), although published works on the subject are actually a collaboration between Fomenko and several other mathematicians.
The Phantom time hypothesis is a conspiracy theory developed in the 1980s and '90s by German historian Heribert Illig (born 1947 in Vohenstrauß , Germany). The hypothesis proposes that periods of history, specifically that of Europe during the Early Middle Ages (AD 614–911), did not exist, and that there has been a systematic effort to cover up that fact. Illig believed that this was achieved through the alteration, misrepresentation and forgery of documentary and physical evidence. [ 1 ] [ 2 ]
