This is one of the greatest mysteries that almost everyone knows about… The real question is did a iceberg really sink the Titanic? Below ill include some interesting information about this unfortunate accident..Here is some basic information about the ship; It was owned by White Star Line and Built by Harland and Wolff in Belfast.. It’s only route was from Southampton, England to New York City.. It sank on April 15, 1912 and it was one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history..(1,517 Deaths) Read more about it on Wikipedia..
The boat was never Christened; now you might ask yourself did they want this boat to be cursed? The Titanic carried only 20 lifeboats of different types.. Only 706 people survived! Here is the break down of the numbers…Most of the deaths occurred by hypothermia in the 28 °F water where death could occur in as little as 15 minutes. Men and members of the 2nd and 3rd class were less likely to survive due to the regulation on the boat. (Children and Women First)

Even before the survivors arrived in New York, investigations were being planned to discover what had happened, and what could be done to prevent a recurrence. The United States Senate initiated an inquiry into the disaster on 19 April, a day after Carpathia arrived in New York.
The chairman of the inquiry, Senator William Alden Smith, wanted to gather accounts from passengers and crew while the events were still fresh in their minds. Smith also needed to subpoena all surviving British passengers and crew while they were still on American soil, which prevented them from returning to the UK before the American inquiry was completed on 25 May. The British press condemned Smith as an opportunist, insensitively forcing an inquiry as a means of gaining political prestige and seizing “his moment to stand on the world stage”. Smith, however, already had a reputation as a campaigner for safety on U.S. railroads, and wanted to investigate any possible malpractices by railroad tycoon J. P. Morgan, Titanic’s ultimate owner.
Lord Mersey was appointed to head the British Board of Trade’s inquiry into the disaster, which took place between 2 May and 3 July. Each inquiry took testimony from both passengers and crew of Titanic, crew members of Leyland Line’s Californian, Captain Arthur Rostron of Carpathia and other experts.
The investigations found that many safety rules were simply out of date, and new laws were recommended. Numerous safety improvements for ocean-going vessels were implemented, including improved hull and bulkhead design, access throughout the ship for egress of passengers, lifeboat requirements, improved life-vest design, the holding of safety drills, better passenger notification, radio communications laws, etc. The investigators also learned that Titanic had sufficient lifeboat space for all first-class passengers, but not for the lower classes. In fact, most third class passengers had no idea where the lifeboats were, much less any way of getting to the upper decks where the lifeboats were stowed. U.S. immigration regulations of the time required complete isolation of third class passengers. As a result, the route to the boat deck through the higher classes of accommodation was quite inefficient—so much so that third-class steward John Hart had to guide E-deck passengers up to the boat deck in two trips, leaving many passengers still below decks when the ship sank.
How did it sink?
Everyone thinks that the Titanic sunk because of an iceberg; lets find out about that! Well first It created a 350 foot hole in the hull which water entered causing all six of the compartments to flood.. It was designed to stay afloat with 3 or possibly 4 of the compartments completely flooded..It’s easy to think about filling up an ice cube tray and that’s basically how the Titanic sunk.. The watertight design proved to be a complete flop.. There has been many other theories about how the ship really sank and ill include them below..
The Titanic & Olympic Conspiracy
On September 20th 1911, the Titanic’s older sister Olympic, sailed from Southampton England. Within the hour a collision occurred, compromising the Olympics’ structural integrity. Did the Olympic suffer from damage that was so severe that she was not worth repairing? Did the White Star Line switch the Olympic with her near identical sister Titanic in a ruse to intentionally sink their mortally damaged flagship on April 15th 1912?
Olympic & Titanic, The Truth behind the Conspiracy explores the switch theory, addresses evidence and gives the final answer to the intriguing question of which ship actually lies on the bottom of the North Atlantic today.
Another author called Robin Gardner which is the writer of the book; Titanic: the ship that never sank and he claims that the Olympic and the Titanic were swapped in a insurance fraud scheme. There has been some very interesting information that has been found that points to major conspiracy behind these two ships.. Here is a PDF document that has a lot of evidence and background research about the book I mentioned above..
When the titanic left the Harland and Wolff docks, in Belfast, on her way to the South Hampton docks, for her maiden voyage. Why did she have a newly named room, The Olympic room? Is it because, a lot of shipping merchants believe, it is bad luck to change the name on a ship, and J Bruce Ismay, and J.P. Morgan, thought it best, to have the Olympics name still somewhere on board?
On the day, the Titanic, was set to sail her maiden voyage, why did the owner of Whitestar line J.P. Morgan cancel his passage, only hours before the ship was due to sail?
Why did J Bruce Ismay order the Captain to take her full steam ahead, knowing full well they had recieved a great many iceberg warnings?
Why did the ship make an unscheduled course change? Was this to put her on a collision course with that iceberg?
Why is it, that any of the crew, that could have proven a conspiracy, go down with the ship, that night? Is this so nobody would be able to speak out about, what J Bruce Ismay, and J.P. Morgan had done?
We may never know the actual truth behind the sinking of the Titanic, but with GREAT conspiracy theory sites on the web, and excellent books coming out, and raising some hard cold facts about that night,we atleast have the chance to look at it, from a different point of view.
The Jesuits Theory
This is the most controversial theory of the entire Titanic conspiracy and it has to do with connection between the Morgan’s, Rothchild’s and Rockefeller’s.. These “special families” rule the world and they are the most violent criminals alive.. Here is some background information about Jesuits. These are quotes from the book: The Secret Terrorists’ printed by Truth Triumphant Ministries and which was reprinted by Tree of Life Resources.
Founded in 1540, the Society of Jesus grew rapidly within the Catholic Church. They were confessors to the ruling families of Europe. They defend the Pope and Catholicism around the world in nearly every country. In 1773, Clement XIV suppressed the Jesuits. In 1814, Pope Pius VII responded to pressure and restored the Society. There are Jesuit colleges and ministries today. They are a very influential organization. Jesuits are dedicated to furthering Catholicism and the power of the Pope. Yet…there is a secret, negative side to this organization called ‘the Society of Jesus.’ For hundreds of years they carried out religious killings. They were the men in dark cloaks who carried daggers.
The Rothschilds, Morgans and Rockefellers are controlled by the Jesuit Order. The most powerful of families ‘do whatever is necessary to destroy constitutional liberty in America and bring the Pope to world domination.’ Construction of the Titanic began in 1909; at a shipyard in Belfast, Ireland. Belfast was Protestant and hated by the Jesuits. Morgan took control of the White Star Lines. The Jesuits ordered J.P. Morgan to build the Titanic. From the very beginning of the luxury liner, the Titanic was destined for doom.
There were a number of powerful men who were NOT in favor of the Federal Reserve System. Benjamin Guggenheim, Isa Strauss and John Jacob Astor opposed the formation of a F.R.S. These men were arguably the richest men in the world and stood in the way of the Jesuits’ plan. ‘These three men were coaxed and encouraged to board the floating palace.’ Not only were these enemies of the Jesuits against a Federal Reserve Bank, but they would have used their wealth and influence to oppose World War I.
Many Irish, French and Italian Catholics were on board. Protestants from Belfast were also encouraged to immigrate to the United States on the Titanic. These were ‘expendable’ people; for the most part. But, the real reason for the ship’s destruction was a game between the super rich whereby Guggenheim-Strauss-Astor could be eliminated. ‘They had to be destroyed by a means so preposterous that no one would suspect they were murdered, and no one would suspect the Jesuits.’
The Captain of the Titanic was Edward Smith. He was a Jesuit and worked for J.P. Morgan. Anyone could be a Jesuit and their identity not be known. >From National Geographic ‘The Secrets of the Titanic,’ (1986):
When the ship departed southern England, on board was Francis Browne. He was the most powerful Jesuit in all of Ireland and the ‘Jesuit Master of Edward Smith.’ ‘Here is Jesuit treachery at its finest. The provincial Father Francis Browne boards the Titanic, photographs the victims, most assuredly briefs the Captain concerning his oath as a Jesuit, and the following morning bids him farewell…’ Eric J. Phelps, Vatican Assassins Halcon Unified Services. P. 247.
The Mummy Curse
In the late 1890s, four rich, young, Englishmen visiting the excavations at Luxor were invited to buy an exquisitely fashioned mummy case containing the remains of Princess of Amen-Ra.
The man who won paid several thousand pounds and had the coffin taken to his hotel. A few hours later, he was seen walking out towards the desert. He never returned. The next day, one of the remaining three men was shot by an Egyptian servant accidentally. His arm was so severely wounded it had to be amputated. The third man in the foursome found on his return home that the bank holding his entire savings had failed. The fourth man suffered a severe illness, lost his job and was reduced to selling matches in the street.
Nevertheless, the coffin reached England (causing other misfortunes along the way), where it was bought by a London businessman . After three of his family members had been injured in a road accident and his house damaged by fire, the businessman donated it to the British Museum
Museum’s night watchmen frequently heard frantic hammering and sobbing from the coffin . Other exhibits in the room were also often hurled about at night . One watchman died on duty; causing the other watchmen wanting to quit. Cleaners refused to go near the Princess too . When a visitor derisively flicked a dust cloth at the face painted on the coffin, his child died of measles soon afterwards. Finally, the authorities had the mummy carried down to the basement . Figuring it could not do any harm down there. Within a week, one of the helpers was seriously ill, and the supervisor of the move was found dead on his desk.
Eventually, a hard-headed American archaeologist (who dismissed the happenings as quirks of circumstance), paid a handsome price for the mummy and arranged for its removal to New York . In April of 1912, the new owner escorted its treasure aboard a sparkling, new White Star liner about to make its maiden voyage to New York.
On the night of April 14, amid scenes of unprecedented horror, the Princess of Amen-Ra accompanied 1,500 passengers to their deaths at the bottom of the Atlantic. The name of the ship was Titanic.
– In 1898, a fictional story called ‘The wreck of the titan’ was written by Morgan Robertson, and it told the story of a ship called the Titan which hit an iceberg and had not enough lifeboats.. He claims to get his inspiration from his “psychic abilities.”
-There were no cats on the Titanic. Cats were often brought on ships as a form of good luck. They also controlled rodents.
-It was customary to break a bottle of champagne on the bow of a boat when launched. The Titanic launching did not include the traditional bottle-breaking.
– The Adelman’s were planning to return to America on the Titanic. Mrs. Adelman had a feeling of danger and they decided not to travel that day on the Titanic.. Always trust your gut-feeling..
– Mrs. Blanche Marshall watched the Titanic and stated. “That ship is going to sink before it reaches America,” she said. “I can see hundreds of people in the icy water.
-The lookouts in the crow’s nest did not have binoculars. Having binoculars might have prevented the Titanic tragedy.
