Evidence The Titanic Was Sunk on Purpose
« on: 30/07/2015 22:06:44 »
I just came across this video.

Evidence The Titanic Was Sunk on Purpose


They do make a good case. I'm going to sit on the fence for now though.


Check out what is said about the portholes at the 10:00 time mark. Some good points are made at the 47:46 time mark too. Their info about the number on the propeller, the portholes, etc has to be verified I suppose. If it turns out to be true, it closes the whole case.

The part that's got me wondering is the claim that the letters M and P can be seen at the stern of the wreck. Check it out at the 49:57 time mark.

This video seems to show something different than the other.

It looks like there has been some video doctoring somewhere as I can't find the M or the P in the above video.

Aren't there enough conspiracy theories in the world already without the need for a new one? What good are they anyway?

I'm proceeding cautiously.  I haven't made a committment.  If I see some clear proof of one scenario or the other, I'll just go with it.  I don't have a foregone conclusion.  If you're so sure this is BS, tell us why.  Thinking people aren't swayed by empty rhetoric.

An a priori incredulity is just as fallacious as a naive willingness to believe.


Here's an article I'm checking out.

Look at the photos in posts #1, #7, #21, #22, and #24 of this thread. You can enlarge them by clicking on them.

They seem to show that the wreck is the Olympic.

As long as society contains individuals that are looking to be entertained, we will have these conspiracy theories. Personally, I think my time is better invested by concentrating on paying my bills which seems to be:

  A clear and present danger.

It seems that I jumped the gun. I can't find any photos that confirm the one in my last post. All I can find are photos of a ship with a half covered promenade deck and unevenly spaced windows on B deck with the name Titanic on it. The official story is that they modified the Titanic to look like that; it originally looked like this.

It later looked like this.

It's still not certain which ship was modified though. The Olympic underwent a seven-week repair; it might have been modified during that time.


I would say the issue is up in the air. I'm going to sit on the fence for now.
