The story I heard goes like this....
The White Star Line company had a boat called RMS Olympic. It was damaged. They couldn't get the insurance money to fix it. Meanwhile the company was
building 2 new boats which were The Titanic and some other ship.
The White Star Line company was strapped for cash. They needed to find a way to get some money. So they launched the titanic. They take it on it's
maden voyage but the swap it for the Olympic. The Olympic just painted up to say "The Titanic". So they sink that ship. They then go claim the
insurance money. And that saved the company.
Meanwhile they had these 2 new undamaged ships that they started using to transport the passengers with.
The White Star Line company was owned by JP morgan. Also the idea for this insurance scam was based on a book written 14 yrs before the titanic called
The Wreck of the Titan.
The Wreck of the Titan depicted the titanic disaster to a tee. So they knew how to go about doing this sinking. Again so they sink the Olyimpic (which
was damaged and also was desgused to be the titanic) to get the insurance money and to get rid of there damaged ship.
What do you think???

n April 14, 1912, the huge "unsinkable" ship the Titanic was steaming across the Atlantic towards New York. This was the Titanic's maiden voyage,
and her captain was encouraged to break the record for speed while making the voyage. As most people know, after striking an iceberg, the unsinkable
ship went down in only a matter of hours. Out of the 2,201 passengers, only 711 were saved. Since then, there have been many books and movies about
There was one fictional story written by a merchant seaman by the name of Morgan Robertson. Robertson's book was about an unsinkable passenger
liner that sank while carrying the elite people of the time. The ship in Robertson's story was called the Titan and the book was titled The Wreck of
the Titan. Even though the book is fictitious, the events in the story parallel the events of the Titanic. Both ships were built to be unsinkable.
Both ships sank after striking an iceberg. Both ships were on their maiden voyage. The most well to do famous people were on the Titan and Titanic.
Only one third of the passengers on each ship survived. Both ships had an inadequate number of lifeboats. Both ships were encouraged to break speed
records during their voyage.
Robertson's book The Wreck of the Titan was never published. Each time it was rejected by editor's, they told him the same thing. The story was
unbelievable. Surely the events he wrote of could not possibly happen to an unsinkable ship.
The book, The Wreck of the Titan was written in 1898, fourteen years before the Titanic hit an iceberg and settled on the bottom of the northern
