    • If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

  • Even the smallest amount of research would've revealed this story to be more of a legend from an old poem. Sorry I can recall the whole debunking of this thing, but if you are curious look up Scottish lighthouse mystery debunked or something similar to find out the mystery has been solved for years and turns out it was never a mystery to begin with. There's my confidence innRyan's researching skills blown...😔

  • Love that the alien theory is literally just Ryan's I think a wave knocking them into the ocean is plausible. Possibly one or two went out in the storm to retrieve that tackle box and got swept up and when they didn't return the other(s) went out to look and also got swept in a wave. The lack of bodies coming ashore does not dispute that, they could have been eaten by something in the ocean. I do like the mythical creatures kidnapped them theory though. Maybe they lived in a cave for the rest of their life with their merman boyfriends.

  • My theory. No light house keeper was on the island. A big storm hits the island and Extinguished the light. The other man on the island over was paid to keep his mouth shut. Just lucky no foreign ships went into the area. And that's that. No harm no foul

  • Curious if this might be one of those bad bread instances. Since people have been known to hallucinate ergot infections due to rye. It would be enough to make one hallucinate a storm or be foolish enough to go out without a coat. I dunno but curious if this could be the case.

  • This theory is able to be debuted easily, but still an idea. If there was a small, but strong hurricane, that could do some damage to the island, like the safety ring being removed. And the eye of the storm could be described and calm. Just an idea.

  • Clocks most likely were set at the same time and therefore all stopped around the same time. 2 of them went out while the other saw the wave and ran out to warn them, (leaving he’s jacket and knocking over a chair) all 3 got swept away by the damaged side of the island. Some things don’t make sense but it’s more likely than alien abduction
