In our previous article, A Common Sense Look at the Most Popular Titanic Conspiracy Theories, we looked at the Titanic disaster from the standpoint of worldly manipulation. If you’ve read the article, you probably see that
when you check out the facts behind common conspiracy theories relating to the Titanic tragedy, there just isn’t a whole lot of meat on the bones. Now, we will look at this from an entirely different angle. In a way, this may be the grandest conspiracy theory of all time, and Christians and others that believe in the idea of a god that silently places his hands on the events of this world often use this as one of their rallying points.
The Titanic was an unbelievable work of technology for its time, which is part of the reason so much intrigue surrounds it. The ship was famously dubbed as “unsinkable.” There is a school of thought that this decree that the Titanic was beyond destruction was an outright challenge to God Himself. The idea is that God would not allow the Titanic to complete even its maiden voyage after such a bombastic statement, and the theories surrounding this go even further in preaching against the extravagance and wealth that the Titanic symbolized. One of the greatest factors is that the Titanic sank by striking an iceberg. The area of the ocean that the Titanic was sailing in was not one where icebergs were prevalent, making it an uncanny coincidence that such a tragedy could have happened where it happened. Many chalk this up to God going out of his way to make sure the Titanic’s “unsinkable” claims would not work out.
How you feel about this theory will depend solely on your particular religious beliefs and inclinations? If you believe in an almighty God, then you may very well see this as a viable possibility. If you don’t believe in such things, you will probably find it ludicrous. The only evidence for the theory is that the Titanic did indeed sink in an extraordinary series of events. Whether this is the act of a God or just a coincidence of a complicated Earth is up to you to decide.
The more radical conspiracy theorists actually take this a step farther by comparing it to John Lennon. Some believe that John Lennon’s death was the result of God’s vengeance upon him for his infamous comparison of the Beatles to Jesus Christ. Just as with the Titanic, there is no amount of factual evaluation that will help you confirm or deny such allegations. The answer lies within you. So, as always, Common Sense Conspiracy wants to hear what you think.
