happygamestop444, it is now known that a fire burning for days inside coal stores is what weakened the hull first, making it vulnerable to damage from icebergs

Michelle Drew, you are oversimplifying things. You need to look at the decisions made regarding the ship's design, the lack of life boats, the myth that it was unsinkable and the failure of the nearest ship to respond. Things are rarely as simple as we like to make them.

Having just answered a question on syntax recently,I feel it's appropriate to point out that it was the ship which hit the iceberg, not vice versa.

Yes, the ship that helped in the rescue did take survivors to New York. My grandmother was on it with her mother & sister,& they shared their state room with Mrs. Astor. She was so thankful that she later invited then to her N.Y. mansion. We learned about this when my grandmother was 82 years of age!!!

Such sorrow that never should of happened in the first place if the Captain only listened to what he was told by others.

A recent program on tv said that if they had hit the iceberg head-on with the bow, they might have stayed afloat longer, and more people might have survived. It's like many blunders in a short period of panic doomed the ship & its passengers. I've heard that engineers built the Titanic, but an amateur built the Ark.

Maybe if upon Send Off and Bottle christening, the man had not said "even GOD can't sink this vessel", there may have been Mercy given by the Almighty GOD. That statement was a slap in the face to the Creator of man. GOD uses threes (3) in many instances- err a 3hour sink time falls into place. My opinion only. I do know that GOD is Real, and Will Not Be Mocked. Byl Butler

Actually the Titanic sank because the "watertight compartments" had no ceilings and allowed the water to pass further into the ship. Also ego allowed this ship to sail without insufficient lifeboats, sealing many passengers' fates.

Rest in Peace to all those souls who lost their lives to think that many more could be saved if they emptied the boats to go back.

If you did enough research on the myths of the titanic it was also a possibility that the rich people tried to sink the boat which had other random people on the ship because they made those rich people mad
