From what I’ve read, there’s no record of anyone saying “Even God could no sink this ship” until it popped up as an urban legend many years after.
This reminds me of a news report a few years back, where structural flaws in the Twin Towers were said to have caused their collapse. A wit replied that perhaps the airliners had something to do with it as well.
In addition to the alleged machinations of our Protestant brethren shipbuilders, the iceberg may have had something to do with the Titanic going down, too.
I thought they proved that it was really the lack of technology that did it- iceberg hitting weak rivets tore a hole right down the side.
This reminds me of someone telling me a few years ago after Creighton University changed the name of their hospital from St. Joseph’s Hospital to Creighton University Med Center that “you know ever since they changed the name, the number of deaths because of infections has gone up” I thought, yea that sounds like something St. Joseph would do out of spite. Sheesh.
