So do you think the Titanic sank? Here is the official version, remember the dates.
RMS Titanic sank from the night of 14 April through to the morning of 15 April 1912 in the North Atlantic Ocean, four days into the ship’s maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. The largest passenger liner in service at the time, Titanic had an estimated 2,224 people on board when she struck an iceberg at around 23:40 (ship’s time)[a] on Sunday, 14 April 1912. Her sinking two hours and forty minutes later at 02:20 (05:18 GMT) on Monday, 15 April resulted in the deaths of more than 1,500 people, which made it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.
Titanic received six warnings of sea ice on 14 April but was travelling near her maximum speed when her lookouts sighted the iceberg. Unable to turn quickly enough, the ship suffered a glancing blow that buckled her starboard(right) side and opened five of her sixteen compartments to the sea. Titanic had been designed to stay afloat with four of her forward compartments flooded but no more, and the crew soon realised that the ship would sink. They used distress flares and radio (wireless) messages to attract help as the passengers were put into lifeboats. In accordance with existing practice, Titanic’s lifeboat system was designed to ferry passengers to nearby rescue vessels, not to hold everyone on board simultaneously; therefore with the ship sinking rapidly and help still hours away, there was no safe refuge for many of the passengers and crew. Compounding this, poor management of the evacuation meant many boats were launched before they were completely full.
Thus, when Titanic sank, ( I mean the Olympic ) over a thousand passengers and crew were still on board. Almost all those who jumped or fell into the water either drowned or died within minutes due to the effects of cold water immersion. RMS Carpathia arrived on the scene about an hour and a half after the sinking and rescued the last of the survivors by 09:15 on 15 April, some nine and a half hours after the collision. The disaster caused widespread outrage over the lack of lifeboats, lax regulations, and the unequal treatment of the three passenger classes during the evacuation. Subsequent inquiries recommended sweeping changes to maritime regulations, leading to the establishment in 1914 of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), which still governs maritime safety today.
But thats not what really happened. You see the Titanic had an exact twin the Olympic which was refitted with a larger upper deck while being repaired from an accident with the RMS Hawke a British navel vessel. In addition the Titanic had been photographed during construction and it had 14 evenly spaced port holes. When it was seen at the bottom of the ocean it had 16 port holes. Now take note of what happened to the Olympic. The plan was in motion. It should also be noted that 5 days before the voyage of the Titanic J P Morgan increased the Insurance on the ship from $5,000,000 to $12,500,000. By the way although Mr Morgan along with many of his wealthy friends were to make the maiden voyage but deceided not to go.
In 1911 Smith took command of the largest ship ever built, RMS Olympic. On 20 September 1911, just 13 weeks after her maiden voyage, Olympic collided with the British warship HMS Hawke. Both ships were badly damaged and the Navy blamed Olympic’s huge size for pulling Hawke towards her. I think some are getting a hint as to what really happened. You see The White Star Line was about to kill two birds with one stone. The damage to the Olympic was to the right fron and sent to Belfast for repair 7 months before the Titanic was set to sail for New York.
While researching I found some very interesting and wild theories however I am sure this was an Insurance job. It is also said that 3 very wealthy men that were opposed to forming the Federal Reserve were aboard the ship which is why I asked that you keep an eye on the dates as this is around the time the Federal Reserve was being planned.
Under the cover of darkness the names of the ships were changed and one replaced for another. J P Morgan collected $12,500,000 from LLoyds Maritime. Other stories have been told that it may have been sunk by a German U boat yet others say the ship had a fire in the boiler room which caused the ship to increase speed as coal was shoveled into the other furnaces. Another is said that the repair to the right front was poor and rushed and several of the rivits used to repair the Olympic had popped.
The Titanic which cost $7,500,000 was kept in service for 24 years until 1935.
Just for fun I have included another story of the lid to the buriel vault said to be of Amen Ra, purchased by 4 men in Luxor, Egypt. Although it had changed hands many times as it was said to be cursed ( everyone that owned it ended up dead ) was on board.
