Did the Titanic Really Sink? The Olympic Switch Theory Debunked

In the early hours of April 15th, the British passenger liner RMS Titanic, owned by the White Star Line, collided with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. At the time, some believed the ship to be “practically unsinkable” because of her system of watertight compartments, of which four could be flooded and the ship would still remain afloat. However, the iceberg tore a series of holes along the side of the hull, flooding six compartments, which sealed the ships fate. Less then three hours after the collision, Titanic would lay at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean…or did it? There is a rather fascinating and compelling conspiracy theory that Titanic was switched with her sister ship, Olympic, and was purposefully sank as part of an insurance scam!
