A TikTok video claims strong evidence exists Titanic never sank. The viral video that has amassed more than 11 million views is claiming a very convincing theory that the actual Titanic never sank. Key word being ACTUAL.

Instead, a woman by the name Mia believes it was the Olympic ship that had been purposefully sank. This was in order to avoid the huge costs it would take to repair the older ship.

“I was a Titanic kid, meaning I literally knew every single fact about the Titanic,” Mia says. “My ass would sit and watch documentaries for hours and hours and hours. But when I heard this theory, everything like made sense.”

“The White Star Line — a super important ship company built three super notable ships. We have the Titanic, the Olympic and the Britannic,” she adds. The British company was one of the most prominent shipping lines in the world, providing passenger and cargo services between the British Empire and the United States at the time.

“We have the Olympic and the Titanic. They look identical,” Mia continues in the video. “The Olympic was on the water for a while. She was reaching for retirement and they knew that. They were like ‘well it was a lot of money to make the Titanic, and it’s gonna be even more money to repair the Olympic. So what if we just sent the Olympic out instead, sank that hoe, claim some insurance money and then just scrap the Titanic like it was the Olympic for some spare parts.”

Mia then says some notable people decided last-minute not to get on the Titanic, including J.P. Morgan. The prominent banker, and who was ironically the owner of the White Star Line. The Vanderbilts also changed their minds last minute. Did they all know something the other passengers didn’t?

I’m not sure about this whole conspriacy! But it is interesting!
