Apparently it wasn't even an iceberg that sunk the Titanic

Our whole lives are a lie.

New evidence suggests an iceberg didn't sink the Titanic

Well then, 2017 is already coming in hot with the mind-blowing discoveries.

Our entire lives we have believed every word this woman told us...

We've blamed this jerk for the death of Leonardo DiCaprio, or should we say Jack Dawson...

When all along, it could have been a FIRE that sunk the Titanic, not an iceberg.

A documentary called Titanic: The New Evidence, shows a theory that a huge fire was largely responsible for the ship sinking. An expert believes it had been burning for almost three weeks, but had gone unnoticed. Wow.

Journalist Senan Molony studied photographs taken before the Titanic left the shipyard in Belfast, and noticed long, black marks near where the ship was hitby the iceberg.

"We are looking at the exact area where the iceberg struck, and we appear to have a weakness or damage to the hull in that specific place, before she even left Belfast," he said.

Experts confirmed that the marks indicated a fire from the boiler room, weakening the ship's steel and resulting in the iceberg being able to tear it open.

"The official Titanic inquiry branded [the sinking] as an act of God," Senan told The Times.

"This isn't a simple story of colliding with an iceberg and sinking. It's a perfect storm of extraordinary factors coming together: fire, ice and criminal negligence."

Better get making a new movie then.
