Why is there almost an obsession with a ship which sank back in April 1912? Why the fascination with this catastrophe which struck both the American and British peoples more than a century ago? And why the need to make yet another movie, this time in 3D? This was the Kate Winslet, Leonard DiCaprio movie TITANIC.
Apparently, it is impossible to bootleg a 3D movie, this technique may save the movie industry countless millions in the future.
The loss of this great ship built in Belfast, Northern Ireland and owned by J.P. Morgan had a 9/11 type effect on both sides of the Atlantic. Thousands were devastated as the report of the ships sinking hit the morning papers in London and in New York, where Titanic was to dock earlier that morning.
Not Even God…
During construction ‘Not Even God Can Sink This Ship’ had been painted on the hull of the vessel. This was allowed to remain, perhaps reflecting a superior attitude of self-confidence brought about by trust in Titanic’s advanced engineering. On launch day the ship claimed its 8th victim as one of those assisting with the launch was killed.
Titanic was the first ship to be built with watertight compartments below decks and was believed to be unsinkable, five compartments would need to be breached in order to sink her. This is exactly the damage sustained, with a gash of 290 feet spanning the five forward compartments below the water line of the largest moving object on earth!
But Britain and America did not pause long enough to consider our national attitudes, perhaps leaving God behind as Titanic sailed from Belfast to the port of Southampton, where it took on supplies, a full crew, and passengers before racing for New York.
The impressive Titanic exhibit in Belfast Northern Ireland where the ship was built, is a state of the art star shaped facility with a blue line (after the Blue Star Line owners) approaching the building, depicting the full length of the ship’s hull. Nine excellent exhibits rise to the height of Titanic’s upper deck.
A Cold Water Mirage and Scintillation
An atmospheric condition known as a ‘cold water mirage’ experienced in the rain may have hidden the 25-mile long iceberg which sank Titanic. This could have reduced the sighting of this huge object from a full half hour down to less than a 60 second warning. The ‘scintillation’ effect on that very starry night could have caused the nearby ship, the California, to miss Titanic’s flashing distress signals!
Since The 9/11 Attack
Since the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and the more recent near collapse of the world economy, do we continue to believe that ‘Not Even God Can Sink This Ship’ with an economy ‘to big to fail and too big to bail’ just like that once great ship?
Two years after ‘the Titanic wake up call’ God brought an old enemy to threaten the British and American way of life, which caused thousands more lives to be lost at sea and in the trenches of World War One.
Today God WARNS Britain and America of His unhappiness with our national attitude.
He sees our nations abandoning His laws, with dishonest business practices, disintegration of our families, our morals and our approval of even worse behavior, and He begins to SHOCK us back to reality.
God does exist, He is not far away and He does WARN America and Britain before bringing stronger corrective punishment. This was as true after Titanic’s sinking in 1912 as it has been following the 9/11 attack with additional terror attacks, growing drought, and coming World War.
