Hi!!! You trust that Titanic was lost because of collision with an iceberg? Many think that it was a swindle. How you think?

I'm very sure it was an iceberg.

You have too many credible witnesses who survived.

Such as the two lookouts (Fleet and Lee), Quatermaster Hitchens at the wheel, Fourth Officer Boxhall (who was walking to the bridge right as it happened), Quartermaster Rowe who saw the berg pass as he stood on the docking bridge at the stern. The people who's cabin had ice fall in it because their porthole was open(I cant remember their names now).

Plus, how did all of that ice get on the starboard well deck?

What conspiracy story did you hear? Explosion in a coal bunker due to fire ? Insurance scam that involved Olympic actually sinking?

I heard many versions about destruction of Titanic - explosion in a coal bunker, insurance swindle, torpedo attack, a mistake in T.Andrews's project and about the Egyptian mummy...

I must concure with you MGY Friend, I think it was the iceberg and nothing much more. Now having said that I think the fire in the coal bunker may have had a part in it. As the ice cold water hit the fire it could have caused some kind of mini explosion inside the ship adding to the problem. certanly not the cause though. As far as the curse of the mummy lets leave that one to Hollywood.

I remeber reading that the fire which was in Coal Bunker 10 (in boiler room 6) was already put out basically at the time of the collision. Aparently though, the fire warped the watertight bulkhead between rooms 6 and 5. Captain Smith was supposed to have told the engineers to rub grease on the area and keep and eye on it.

Author Charles Pellegrino stated that this critical bulkhead was probably made weaker by the fire, and allowed the bulkhead to give away. Aparently, when the ship filled up to boiler room 6, the hull gained almost equilibrium, and the sinking almost came to a standstill.

i think it hit the iceberg because they were going way to fast and if they would slow down they could miss the iceberg but they had to make a speed record thats what i think

i8 must say this.

Yeah, maybe aliens were coming from another galaxy to destroy the biggest thing humans had ever build... or a giant, hungry kraken came up from the bottom of the deep ocean and pulled the ship down - he had no can opener so he just decided to break it in half.

Correct me if I'm wrong *lol*

I dont think that happened. It was the doing of the aliens and the mummy.
