The Real reason why the Titanic sank

Postby black bart » Fri Nov 30, 2007 8:37 pm

Give us yer theories for why the Titanic sank...provide evidence if ye can in the shape of photos or diagrams or documents.

No1 There was a Cronan aboard:

The documentary evidence from the National Archives at Kew:

I have found that on one side of the family 11 of my ancestors were in the merchant navy, a subject on which The National Archives records are very comprehensive. The other side of my family came over from Ireland in the 1850's at the time of the potato famine.

My great grandfather William Cronan worked for the White Star Line ocean liner the Olympic in the 1920's. He rose up to become a chief electrical greaser, however conduct records show he was demoted for starting a fire on board. He was on the ship the Britannic when it was sunk in the Aegean in 1916. Luckily he survived along with nearly all the crew and passengers.

Less fortunate was my other great grandfather, who by chance also worked for the White Star Line and was working on the Titanic when it sank. It seems he made it off the ship but sadly froze to death in the water. For many years his wife was misinformed that her husband's body had been lost at sea, in fact he was buried in Halifax, Nova Scotia. By way of compensation for the loss of her husband her daughter received piano lessons from the Titanic fund.

Sorry. I can do many things, but PS obviously ain't one of 'em.
Some 5 or 6 or 7 billion years from now, the Sun will become a red giant star and will engulf the orbits of Mercury and Venus and probably the Earth. The Earth then would be inside the Sun, and some of the problems that face us on this particular day will appear, by comparison, modest.On the other hand, since it is 5,000 or more million years away, it is not our most pressing problem. It is, though, worth bearing in mind. It has theological implications. - Carl Sagan, Master of Understatement

Aye, ye be right Bart. It were undoubtedly the fault o' that fiend Cronan. Ee must o set foot on 'er.

The proof o' this theory be the little known fact that the iceberg sank as well.

The definitive proof here in a rare photograph on the deck of Titanic just before she sank:

Even more proof to support the Cronan Theory. The original Report of the Titanic's sinking makes damning reading:

Who's Cronan? A relative to Conan the Barbarian or something?
