Makes no sense to me at all that the designers and owners of the titanic would allow the use of brittle steel for the ships hull and wherever else,to save money? but then build the titanics interior so lavishly and expensively...


In which case congratulations! You've learnt something new!

Are there any photos of the Titanic wreckage that show the tear in the hull from the ice berg? Isn't it impossible for ice to tear through metal?

Maybe the reason they won't raise the Titanic is because they don't want the true cause of the damage to be seen?

Or it could have been an Illuminati sacrifice ritual and so needs to remain underwater. Is that the reason they won't raise the USS Arizona out of Pearl Harbor too?

It seems that every 30 years, the Illuminati needs to do a sacrifice ritual.

1912 - Titanic disaster

1941 - Pearl Harbor

1970's - Vietnam War

2001 - 9/11

Is that a coincidence or pattern?

It didn't tear through the metal, it ripped the seams open when the rivets failed.

Enough of the damage has been seen to make an assessment about what the iceberg did. This thread was a joke from start to finish. The idea behind it was just ludicrous and the OP had 0% proof.

It is a theory like any other...and I would say...why not?

There are witness testimony. But let's not forget that witnesses were under shock. Heavy duty shock. The "Unsinkable was sinking"...an impossibility.

There are eye witnesses that saw the iceberg. Some saw it go by. So what they saw wasn't necessarily an iceberg gashing the ship. They saw an iceberg go by.

There have always been rumors of cover up. Rumors that some people wanted that ship to sink. No need to mention that it was speeding (at night) in iceberg infested waters while other ships in the area were either stopped or had slowed down. The Titanic wasn't a racing ship "ordered" to break a speed record as some claim. It was speeding for other reasons but the Captain went down with the ship. Case closed.

Yes but they did find the Titanic. But what did it reveal? A long gash along its side as claimed?

No.

Interesting article that states:


Confusion about the condition of the ship itself remained until the wreck was discovered. Most experts thought that a large gash had been torn in the side. Some eyewitnesses reported that the ship broke apart as it sank, but most shipbuilders dismissed that as impossible. The wreckage revealed that the ship did break apart, and there does not seem to be a gash after all, only small holes.


only small holes

Food for thought.

Are there any photos or videos from the Titanic wreckage of the tear in the hull?

Wouldn't a sub need more than one torpedo to sink the Titanic? I remember that one sub needed 20 torpedoes to sink a big ship during WWI.

How did the Titanic break in half? I never understood that part.

Anyone can say anything, but I'd like to see the Titanic sinking replicated under controlled conditions with miniature models.

There was no evidence, at all, of an explosion. All the eyewitnesses agreed that the ship hit an iceberg - some of the passengers were even seen playing football on the main deck with ice that come off it. The 'berg itself damaged the hull, pupping rivets and tearing the occasional hole along the side of the ship, opening the first five compartments of the ship to flooding. She could have floated with two or even three compartments flooded, but not all five - the weight of the water dragged the bow of the ship down, so that the flooding spilled over into the next compartment, and so on. She didn't sink on an even keel therefore - the water pulled her bow down and her stern up, subjecting the keel to stresses that it wasn't designed to withstand. That's why she broke in half.

Ok, it's official. I'm calling time on this thread and declaring victory. The Titanic was NOT sunk by a German U-boat. ROMA VICTOR!!!

I'd forgotten about this one and how ludicrous it was!

But wait, what if this particular U-boat's torpedoes were made out of ice! And were real big, say, the size of an iceberg! And the U-boat didn't fire their projecticle, but just pushed the massive ice torpedo out of the torpedo hatch real slow, setting it adrift in the path of the Titanic. A dastardly plan.

My face aches from too many face palms on this site...
Let me see...hmmm Iceberg spotted, check...ship collides with iceberg, check...ice showers deck, check, ....damage later confirmed where iceberg struck, check, no explosion reported, just a juddering bump, check....ship sinks due to combinations of complacency, incompetence..oh and water, check.... definitely a submarine. (sits back and waits for the alien theory...takes asprin).

Yes, but the OP saw no reason for actual facts to get in the way of what he seems to have regarded as a plausible theory.

A masterly and dastardly plan! (Sorry for taking so long to notice your post!)

I know folks. This premise by the OP is incredibly dumb.

First off...How good were the WW1 German submarines. Were they capable of operating that far out to sea...and maintain in Iceberg filled north Atlantic waters.

Would not an Iceberg be just as deadly if not more so to a submarine as it would to a surface ship?

Remember in WW1 the German U boats were operating from Germany..not from the coast of France as was the case in WW2. I do not believe the German U Boats had the range to operate that far out into the Atlantic as was the case in WW2 with the later German U boats at the zenith of diesel submarine development.

But my main reason for not believing this theory is that German War Strategy and conduct was often more honorable in it's conduct than the Allies in both WW1 and WW2.

That combined with knowing some of the technological development of these boats at that time tells me it was more dangerous for a U boat to be operating in an Iceberg field than a surface boat...particularly that far out into the North Atlantic...that far from it's home port.
