Facts About My Research

My theory was as mixture of it being the builders and designers of the ship and Captain Smith. I think that this theory makes the most amount of sense compared to others. The other theory that I turned down was actually about the insurance fraud switch. I turned this theory down for one main reason, it was too crazy. I felt that the theory also had too much against it. For example that the fact that the Titanic one one biggest ships of its time it would’ve been very hard to make this happen. Next, I looked at the theory from a realistic standpoint and found that even if this change had happened they would have been caught shortly their after for some reason. So, that’s why I chose the theory that the ship’s sinking was the ship’s crew, builders, and Captain’s fault. This may seem a little far fetched, but it actually has a lot of evidence supporting it. First, the ship’s crew knew that the ship due to its size would have a difficulty turning. The crew even stated that the Titanic could have missed the iceberg if it had better mobility and TURNING, meaning that the crew even said that it could’ve been avoided. Next, the crew also said that if the ship had run at full speed it would be at the destination too ahead of schedule. So, they had to actually slow the ship down which was not a good idea. This was not smart because the ship wouldn’t have enough momentum and actually lead to the ship sinking. So, the crews ignorance may have been the reason for the ship's sad falling.

Why Did I Chose This?

I chose this theory for the reason that it made a lot of rational sense to me. Also, the theory seemed like something that could actually happen, or something that anyone would find realistic. The theory made sense to me because most mistakes that take place in history have been in human error. This is why most of the issues are rarely the machines fault. Also, the the Captain was also mainly to blame due to his extreme ignorance and ego. I say this because even after 5 iceberg warnings the captain still didn’t take any notice, causing him to lose his ship. Next, this theory made more sense compared to the theory that I turned down, or the switching of the Titanic and Olympic. Also, the theory had many things against it in plausibility. For example, do you really think that a crew in the 1910’s could’ve switched out the two biggest ships of the time? I think that it just seems a bit too outlandish. Also, I feel that if the Olympic was switched with the Titanic the crew would’ve known and at least one of the crew members would’ve found out and told. So, for those reasons I dismissed the Olympic and Titanic theory.
