It is already more than a century ago, but the disaster with the RMS Titanic still knows how to keep things interesting. After the luxury passenger ship was deemed unsinkable, its first voyage in 1912 from Southampton to New York went wrong.

After having sailed on the high seas for four days, the Titanic collided with an enormous iceberg. Within three hours the ship sank, resulting in the death of more than 1,500 people on board. Since then, the wildest conspiracy theories have been hurled into the world …

According to one of the theories, the Titanic has not have sunk at all, but it was suggested that this was the sister ship, the RMS Olympic. This would have been the plan for large-scale insurance fraud. By changing the vessels shipping company White Star Line would thus get the insurance premium. The difference would not have been visible, because the Titanic and the Olympic looked almost exactly alike. And that is why swapping the ships would not have been so difficult.

According to another group of conspiracy thinkers, the Titanic was torpedoed by a German U-boat. The ship would not have sailed against an iceberg at all but was attacked with a torpedo. Supporters of this theory point out that various survivors have heard explosions. Some also saw a searchlight in the distance, prior to the arrival of the rescue ship …

More than 25 years before the Titanic would sail out for the first time, he had already published a story that was terribly similar to the disaster that would hit the Titanic. The tragic aspect is that the journalist did not survive his own predictive story, he was one of the passengers aboard the Titanic.

Already on March 2, 1886, William wrote about the fall of a steamship after a collision. The number of deaths was enormous because there were not enough lifeboats onboard. It was a warning from the writer: he predicted that this would happen if the steamboat companies kept cutting costs …

According to the latest theory, the Norwegian ship Samson would have been close to the Titanic when it sank. However, the ship would not have responded to the emergency signal from the Titanic because it was hunting illegally in the neighborhood for seals and did not want any problems. Survivors of the disaster claim to have seen searchlights from the Norwegian boat …

Over the years, all of the aforementioned conspiracies have been thoroughly investigated and examined. According to researchers, however, there is no doubt that there is only one cause of the disaster: the collision with the ice, as a result of which five of the sixteen compartments in the ship were damaged and water poured in …
