Titanic Was Replaced By Another Ship Which Was The Real Reason For Its Tragic Sinking
If you are a big fan of hearing conspiracy theories or maybe if you even believe in them, then this is a perfect video for you. Conspiracy theories give an explanation for an event or situation that has happened and it usually involves illegal acts or even harmful acts. If you can think of a major event in history, there is most likely a conspiracy theory to go along with it and often they are carried out by governments. Some may be more believable than others, but they are all theories at this point. They can range from different assassinations and attempted assassinations, to terrorist attacks, to even sinking of ships as seen in this video.
Most people have heard of the Titanic and how tragic an event it was. There is even a movie based on the tragic event that many people have seen and actually was their first introduction to the Titanic. The Titanic was a British passenger liner and sunk in 1912 during its voyage to New York City. It is one of the deadliest maritime disasters ever with an approximate 1500 deaths out of the 2200 people on board. At the time, the Titanic was the biggest ship afloat and it sank in the early hours of April 15, 1912 after striking an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean. The iceberg that sank the Titanic is common knowledge but some people believe the iceberg wasn’t the reason! This is where the conspiracy theories come in!
The video starts out with a mapped outline of the theory. It begins in 1907 when J.P. Morgan, the man who conceived the idea of the Titanic, orders White Star Line to build the ship. Apparently a nearly identical sister ship was built first called the Olympic. Olympic actually collided with a warship in late 1911 and left it with many holes and lots of structural damage. It was a big disaster and White Star was in trouble because of the money needed to fix the Olympic. It was actually fixed next to the Titanic in the dock and used the Titanic’s propeller.
This is where the conspiracy takes its shape! Apparently some people believe it was not the Titanic that left for voyage on April 10, 1912, but actually the Olympic! According to writer Robin Gardiner, photographic evidence doesn’t match up with the Titanic’s design but matches up instead with the Olympic’s! He claims the boats were switched in the dock and it was all because of the insurance money from the Olympic’s original crash with the warship. All the lives lost were not intended but happened due to poorly planned rescue operations.
Gardiner believes the only reason they got away with this was because of how powerful J.P. Morgan was at the time! It is up to you to decide whether you believe in this theory or not, but it was very tragic nonetheless. These videos are amazing to see because of the time and work people put in to find out solutions to something. Conspiracy videos might offer a new way of thinking or maybe even solidify your own stance on an issue!
