Gracie 6 dagen geleden
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.

Ok but the theories sort of didn't explain why the light was off for so long and then on again for a while, it's odd, almost like they lost control for a while and couldn't do their job and then managed to regain it until they disappeared. That's why I think it must have been something growing overtime that led to their disappearance, not something sudden.

How is it that doing bad impressions (or any impressions) of Scottish, Irish, American, Aussie, Russian etc accents is funny and no one has a problem with it but doing impressions of any Asian or African accent is racist? Is it literally just if the accent is a “white” accent it’s fair game? I’m not trolling just interested peoples’ thoughts.

There was a theory that the keepers were abducted by German navy personnel, but there would be no reason for that. Especially since UK and Germany were at peace. My own unlikely theory involves smugglers.

what if they were in a happy loving homossexual polyamorous relationship and then they met with the water sprites and the sprites were like "hey, we see what you got going on here, we're super into it, you guys should come live with us and be gay under water forever" and then they just went and everybody is happy to this very day. I think that's what happened.

Rogue waves would be more believable if there were more evidence. I'm more inclined to believe the hysteria theory. Maybe Roderick Mackenzie made the men disappear and that's why he didn't report it?

I'm Scottish and if like me you live in the Highlands, you know all those stories about sprites and faeries are all still widely believed today. The idea that the men may have offended a faerie or sprite which then turned them into the three birds sat atop the lighthouse would not be completely unreasonable... especially with the local farmers believing the islands had magical qualities anyway. The Scottish Highlands and Islands are filled with stories and places like that - it can be a very superstitious place, especially among older locals. But i don't believe it was aliens lol.
