the evidence is very compelling. Especially the evidence on the sunken ship itself but also the circumstantial evidence surrounding the insurance and the damage to the sister ship.
One thing though. I highly doubt that this was only a huge insurance scam. The sinking of the "Titanic" was likely designed for political and power positioning reasons as well. I think it was no accident that many friends of JP Morgan (as well as himself) cancelled their tickets on the Titanic at the last minute because they were told to do so. I also think some people were encouraged to take the voyage. Most particularly, there were congress men who apposed enacting a Federal Reserve that died on that voyage. And it is interesting that it managed to pass a year later with them out of the way.
Interesting fact: Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt decided at the last minute not get on the Titanic even though his luggage was already aboard. 3 years later he died on the Lusitania when it sank.
