Titanic Survivor Claims an Iceberg Didn't Destroy the Ship

  • Published on Jun 14, 2019
  • Have you ever met a person who hasn’t ever heard the story of Titanic? Unlikely. Even if you ask a 10-year-old, they’ll tell you exactly what took down the gigantic ship. However, some survivors of the sinking legend would beg to differ. Here’s one of their stories, and it has nothing to do with an iceberg.
    Armenian publicist Vaghinak Byurat was 25 years old in the spring of 1912. He described what happened on his journey to America on the most famous ship in the world in his memoirs. He’s never mentioned an iceberg hitting the Titanic, and always spoke about an explosion. And if what he said was true, something must have caused that huge explosion...

    - Armenian publicist Vaghinak Byurat was 25 years old in the spring of 1912. He described what happened on his journey to America on the most famous ship in the world in his memoirs.
    - In 1912, Vaghinak published some books together with his father, a famous Armenian writer. His task was to take the books to America.
    - They went to bed rather late on April 14, just like on the other nights. Shortly after midnight, something that sounded like a big explosion woke everyone up.
    - None of the crew members wanted to say anything, but a few minutes later it was impossible to deny that the Titanic was going underwater.
    - Vaghinak put his passport and money in a little bag and tied it around his neck. The Titanic’s bow was already underwater by that time. A lot of people in this situation wouldn’t have dared to take it to the open water.
    - The water in the North Atlantic that night was just below freezing, at a scary 28 degrees Fahrenheit (-2 C). The young writer felt his arms and legs go numb, and he was understandably getting weaker and weaker every second.
    - Then, he bumped into something. It was a lifeboat! But it was so overcrowded they pushed the young man with a paddle when he tried to stick to the boat.
    - Vaghinak woke up alive on board another ship. That ship was the Carpathia, and it was en route to New York with lucky survivors on board.
    - 12 days later, a woman came into the room. She turned out to be the person who saved Vaghinak. Missis Astor told the sailors that the young man was her son, and she wouldn’t let them go without him since she’d already lost her husband on the Titanic.
    - Vaghinak lived a long and happy life and, as a great storyteller, he shared what happened to him many times. Interestingly, he’s never mentioned an iceberg hitting the Titanic, and always spoke about an explosion.
    - It could have been a fire, and quite a lot of people actually believe that theory, saying that coal was burning in the ship’s hull.
    - Another theory that explained the explosion claimed that there was a German U-boat involved in the sinking of Titanic.

    This may not be true. But sources have claimed that at the time. It was a battle between banks and the upcoming establishment of central banking. Controlling the currencies. The rich families need I say names.
    The titanic was filled with opposing rich entities and parties that were against the idea of a 1 currency per economy because they knew the families behind it had a selfish agenda.
    The boat was hired or created by JPMorgan if I remember correctly and on that boat were those rebelling against the central bank establishment.
    The boat was rigged like 9/11 and boom the plan to destroy all those aboard.
    Because then there would be nobody to stop the founding of central banking and controlling of governments and countries.
    Correct me if I’m wrong

      @Michael Scofield TheXvid channels spread nonsense conspiracy theories about Titanic because it's good clickbait. Their "evidence" is literally made up. Don't just accept what they spread.

    I believe there was an fire which was there from the beginning and weekend a spot on the boat and then when the ice came for a really big coincidence it hit the exact same spot where the fire had been Burning and that's why The Titanic sank :333

    It is generally accepted that Titanic did hit an iceberg,and at the enquiry into it thats the accepted view! Afterwards the story of a fire in the hold was leaked out and this may not be just a rumour. There are pictures of the black mark on the port side of the ship and the crew who worked in the boiler room we're warned to keep quiet. The hold would be weakened by a fire and Captain Smith wanted the famous Blue Riband record. That is the likely reason she sank because she was going too fast and they didn't heed the warnings given about icebergs!

      As all bunkers were below the waterline the fire could not be the cause of a visible 'black mark' on the hull

    I think everyone (even those in their cabins) heard the torpedo on the Lusitania (all classes heard). that was confirmed. survivors SAW the iceberg and none of them (other than the third class) in a very low part) reported any loud sounds. the people who survived from the coal rooms never said there was an explosion. the picture was taken more than 100 years before that theory came out. all the lifeboats were far away from the titanic when the bow was under and the only ones were the two boats above the bridge which were at the other side of titanic. where did that bag come from when all he got was money and a passport? the ship was so big it was like a skyscraper vertically and he JUMPED off the stern (aka the highest part). that man and all the others in that “cabin” didnt exist. wow thats so real!!

    If it was a fire it would have to be in the boiler room because that is were the ship got its power from burned coal and there were compartments that could fill with water but too many filled. If it was a fire it would have to massive to melt steel and then spread and enough friction against the iceberg in one place seems more likely to me than a fire
