Moj, it was an accident. No one involved set out it make it happen but circumstances transpired otherwise. An example- I run over a wild rabbit on my way home tonight by accident. I didn't start the trip looking for a rabbit to hit and the rabbit didn't sit there waiting for my car to jump under.
This allocation of blame theme seems to have become more prevalent in the late 20th and early 21st Centuries. It's linked in my view to the contentious legal system that looks to pin blame in order to find sources of income mainly for the lawyers.
My thoughts on the matter.
Yes it was an accident. And I didnt say anyone deliberately tried or planned that. Yes I have read a lot conspiracy theories about insurance and ship switching and Morgan wanting to kill some people but they all seem absolutely ridiculous and unreal.
But I believe some accidents are different like this one. They have awful consequences. If like you said you run over a rabbit its sad but its not a huge disaster.
And as far as I searched accidents like Titanic are very rare and that alone shows we take precautions to avoid them both before Titanic and after that I could barely find a similar accident . (Correct me if Im wrong ) .
Thats why I have a hard time believing that thw whole thing was just pure accident and no one's negligence or mistake at least played a role.
Recently I read about the theory of weak material. I dont know if its even a valid theory or not but even if it was correct it only plays a part in the sinking or after the iceberg collision. And it doesnt explain the collision itself.
