    I do not disagree that survivors observed ice bergs .

    However this was why they were on the rescue ship !

    Is your question how did the Titanic break in half?

    The short answer is: the entire forward half of the ship took on water through a giant gash, and began to sink. This lifted the stern clear of the water by a hundred feet or more.

    Ships of any size are not built to be lifted out of the water. It's own weight snapped its spine.

    like a torpedo is designed to cavitate under a ship etc ...
    basic stuff

    there is no shortage of videos from WW2 showing ships being snapped in half by the lifting then dropping motion.

    Describe for us the way a torpedo explodes underneath a ship, using pre-WWI technology.

    Sorry, it's unclear what sort of byzantine conspiracy you have blamed for this sinking. Could you be a little clearer?

    Poor design and construction causing the front of the ship to ''nose'' dive into a wave and take on lots of water . Therefore submerging the front of the ship that raised the rear , an eventuality it snapped in two from its own weight .
    Then the normal typical government cover ups .

    Hence why we build them bigger these days .

    Now moving onto the science of ship building , I am firstly going to explain the ''flat line'' !

    A flat line is a horizontal plane and the golden key to ship building .


    1. A flat line must be a sufficient height above the ocean surface

    2.A flat line must be a sufficient length

    3.A flat line must be a sufficient width


    Three preliminary important factors that are needed to be considered before a sea worthy vessel is designed !

    These considerations an important issue when considering the wave nature of the oceans and the consequent affect on ocean vessels .

    Possibly not !

    IF the Titanic had encountered some rough sea and dived down into a wave troth , there is a chance the first forward funnel would rip off by the force . Additionally looking at the design , the front ''windows'' of the ship would certainly be smashed filling the ship with water in those sections !

    Do you have a link to any information about this theory?

    And the photos of the buckled hull where the ship hit iceberg are CGI????

    Yes. And IF the Titanic had encountered The Kraken and been dragged under...


    Alas, no rough seas or Kraken were present that night. It was all calm and cephalopod-free seas.

    Nope. It hit an iceberg. That ruptured enough of the hull plates that it took on lots of water and sank.

    But if you need to believe in conspiracy theories, it's certainly true that a poor choice of rivets made that more likely. Maybe you could believe that Obama forced them to use Sharia rivets or something, and then covered it up by sending it back in time.
    But icebergs? No issue. Ships can just plow right through them, as long as they have a "sufficient length" - right? If only you had designed the Titanic (or the USS Arizona.)

    Searched for flat line in ship building

    Couldn't find

    Do you have a Link please?

    Did find this

    Is flat line in there, under another name?

    Though a mere sailor, I have never heard the term, nor seen anything like the description in terms of what a boat needs.

    Based on Spencer's behavior to-date, it would not be a bad bet to assume he made it up.

    But really, who cares?

    There was no bad weather that night. It was calm. This is evidenced by the fact that there was fog and very little wave action, as reported by multiple witnesses, both aboard the Titanic and the rescue ships.

    The calm conditions of the weather and the water are supported by a preponderance of evidence, and cannot be dismissed but a simple "Yeah but what if..."
