I have noticed that there are quite a few Titanic threads on here and I didn't search them all. Quite frankly because I was tired of looking. My
Before you dismiss this as “conspiracy theory” you might want to read the book “Futility, the Wreck of the Titan” published in 1898, which
predicted this event in almost exact detail 14 years before it happened! The novel is about a ship called the Titan, the largest ocean liner in the
world that sinks in the North Atlantic after hitting an ice shelf—virtually identical to the Titanic disaster.
There are a lot of conspiracies about whether the ship was sank for personal gain on the ocean liners owners side due to bankruptcy. Or the fact the
JP Morgan wanted certain people dead.
Or was the Titanic a death trap designed to murder billionaires like John Jacob Astor who withstood J. P. Morgan and Rockefeller’s plan for the
Federal Reserve banking system now robbing the entire world, while financing international wars?
I am leaning towards believing that whoever concocted the idea to sink the ship whether it was Morgan/Rockefeller or White Star Line, OH WAIT WHITE
STAR LINE WAS OWNED BY JP MORGAN created the idea from a book! A book called Futility, the Wreck of the Titan. Now do you really think that he
wouldn't kill for money?
Similarities between Titanic and Titan:
The Titanic was the world’s largest luxury liner (882 feet, displacing 53,000 long tons), and was once described as being (nearly) "unsinkable".
The Titan was the largest craft afloat and the greatest of the works of men (800 feet, displacing 75,000 tons), and was considered "unsinkable".
The Titanic carried only 20 lifeboats, less than half the number required for her passenger capacity of 3000.
The Titan carried "as few as the law allowed", 24 lifeboats, less than half needed for her 3000 capacity.
Struck an iceberg
Moving too fast at 23 knots, the Titanic struck an iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912 in the North Atlantic 400 miles away from Terranova.
Also on an April night in North Atlantic 400 miles from Newfoundland (Terranova) , the Titan hit an iceberg while traveling at 25 knots.
The Unsinkable Sank
The unsinkable Titanic sank, and more than half of her 2208 passengers died.
The indestructible Titan also sank, more than half of her 2500 passengers drowning, their "voices raised in agonized screams."
Differences between Titanic and Titan
The Titan does not strike the iceberg a glancing blow on a clear night, as is the case with the Titanic, but drives headlong onto an ice shelf
possibly formed by the recent overturning of a berg, rising up and falling on her side.
The Titanic hit the iceberg in perfect sailing conditions, while the Titan hit the iceberg in bad, misty and foggy conditions.
705 people aboard the Titanic were saved, while only 13 of those aboard the Titan survived.
The Titanic sank on her maiden voyage, while the Titan had made several voyages.
Titanic sank while sailing from England to the USA, Titan was traveling in the opposite direction.
The Titan sinks a ship before hitting the ice. The Titanic came close to an accident with the New York but did not actually hit it.
The Titan had sails to improve her speed; Titanic did not.
The Titanic was the second of three nearly identical sister ships; the Titan had no sister ships.
I have always been saddened by this event and never gave it much thought until I saw a youtube video from buzzfeed about strange coincidences. It
kind of triggered me digging a little deeper. ENJOY!
