For those who may want to look into who did not travel, and any possible reasons, here is an interesting list of names who were booked to board, but for some reason did not.
Again, probably nothing new, but here it is.

I do believe that I read some where that the crew refused to go on board. So they had to recruit more sailors. I guess they knew what was happening and wouldnt go back on board.

I read that too, believe it was the boiler room crew.
This article sums up the link between the Titanic and the Federal Reserve, as mentioned by the original thread poster:

is the resting place of the olympic known and also overplated?
where the both ships really indentical ?small differances known and confirmed?

Olympic was scrapped in 1935. Britannic, the third ship of the class, was converted into a hospital ship and sunk in WWI. It is in relatively shallow water (about 300 feet I think).

I suppose one could see if any artifacts from Olympic survive?

Blatant BS.

just like hundreds of people that could have been involved in a 9/11 conspiracy would have knowledge but dont leak anything, where are they?, or the JFK assination where are they?, or the Iran contra conspiracy or countless others. fact is if whistle blowers are not protected then why leak info, you really think 100 years ago an irish guy with 10 kids is going to have any incentive to leak info, and even if rumours circled they would have died off. an ideal place to look would be ireland itself for stories of this kind

JFK? O you mean the 20 or so witnesses who mysteriously dies over the next couple years.

Yea that happens all the time...

It was an interesting theory.

I watched the documentary. The fact that JP Morgan called in sick to the cruise and was then found on vacation with his mistress in the South of France a couple of days later is a bit suspicious, as is the fact that the boiler crew quit en masse right before the sailing, right at a time when none of them would have found other jobs. Someone knew something.

However, the lack of any identifying furniture etc from Olympic seems a bit of a mystery - every piece that came up or was photographed on the bottom had Titanic's number on.

One thing I did find VERY interesting is the "only piece of the wreckage bought to the surface was the 17 ton piece of hull". What I find interesting is that this is the only piece raised, and it's conveniently the piece of the hull that "beyond a shadow of a doubt" shows this wreck to be Titanic. Of all the pieces of the entire ship that could have been raised, they raised just that very small portion that shows this "beyond a doubt".

Sounds fishy to me.

The documentary also glosses over the fact that 55 first class passengers cancelled their tickets almost immediately before sailing, almost like they were told not to go.

have you guys heard about the book that was written a few years before the ship sunk(or didnt), that explained the story of the titanic, and the ship in the book was named the titan?

posted on Apr, 5 2012 @ 03:18 PM
Personally...I don't buy it. Not a bit. I really wish at least a few little parts of history could be left as they happened and not rewritten or redefined with modern eyes to meet modern preconceptions of contemporary motives.

For the sake of argument though...if this DID sure didn't help the Olympic much, did it? It's biggest claim to War time fame was sinking a German running into it.

After the was one last misadventure in running into yet another ship (Not a sub this time..and it didn't sink) before the last rather pathetic voyage to the breakers yard and razor blades or beer cans for it's future.

I guess the moral of the story is that karma really is a force of nature, eh? Assuming a switch happened...The real Titanic sure didn't have a good service life for the second chance.

Take Titanic Conspiriacy theory to the 33rd degree with this doozey..........

Wow....gonna have to say not likely, but an entertaining read.

Then again who knows.

what I want to know is why some guy was on Colbert Report last night,
who discovered the titanic's wreck, wants money to waste on re-painting it so it doesn't corrode.
and also, i've mentioned before...why are we still even talking about this ONE shipwreck that happened 100 years ago?? like maybe they want to continue the legacy because of another it's intertwined with perhaps? (fed reserve)

just entertaining your idea.

Hmm... my only problem with the Federal Reserve angle is that Astor, Guggenheim, and Strauss could have been saved. It's already been proven that men of their rank were easily allowed onto lifeboats.

Interesting - except that the plating and porthole configurations do not match - a trip to Harland's and a view of the blue prints of the ship from an engineers point of view don't match.

Titanic was a tragedy not a conspiracy

I personally believe this whole Titanic Conspiracy started with that damn news reel when Olympic made her maiden voyage.

Apparently, now get this, the footage used for Titanic was the same used for Olympic. Olympic's main body was more "camera friendly" in comparison to Titanics dark hull. There is no conspiracy, just misleading evidence.

I'm more commenting to remind myself to watch this later. I had never heard this conspiracy before. Gotta love 'em.

i believe the dining room from the olympic (or titanic??) was salvaged and fitted to a hotel, i remember seeing this in a documentary years ago about all three ships. i found this picture not sure what else was salvaged.

and the staircase as well apparently is in the white swan hotel.

And here I was thinking it was a simple as a ship running into a giant chunk of ice.

I really don't know what to say either way. I had never even thought that there could be anything conspiracy-related with Titanic or any of its sister ships.

This probably sounds weird, but this is one of the weirdest things I've ever read on here (and that's saying something).
