  • 9/11 about 1500 people died on Titanic about 3000 people died on 9/11
  • accident or terrorist attack? 9/11 by far. not to mention all the conspiracy theories that float w that one. not to say i do or don't believe in them, but just that reputation to begin with. and the after effects...yea 9/11
  • I would say the Titanic.People slowly froze to death in the frigid waters of the Atlantic.The boats were not used properly and could have fit more people.The ship split in half and many were crushed and fell to their deaths.The alarm to the people went out too late and there was much confusion.
  • The 9/11 event had a very national and global traumatic effect. The Titanic disaster was painful, but did not have the kind of traumatic effect that 9/11 had.
  • 9/11 More deaths
  • 9/11 has to be. Simply due to the fact that this was murder, titanic although horrible was due to bad engineering
  • People died in both..who's to say one is worse than the other
  • i would say 911 because the government fuckin like killllled people for money! thats just ridiculous..
  • 9/11 wasn't an accident. The titanic sinking was. so 9/11 was worse, as it was planned by the new world order of which the george bush is a high ranking reptilian member.
  • 9/11...... While Titanic was a horrific tragedy and certainly human error was involved, it was, for all intents and purposes, an accident. 9/11, on the other hand, was the senseless murder of thousands. It was intentional and malicious. It was planned in advance and carried out in cold blood. Murder trumps accident.
  • In a way it's relative--those who lost people on the Titanic were as saddened and distraught as those who lost people in 9/11. The difference is, the Titanic deaths were an accident, even tho probably preventable and caused by mans' mistake. 9/11 was deliberate murder. Accidental, deliberate---the latter is much more difficult to accept.
  • Death happened in both, people lost loved ones in both, How do you measure their pain?
  • Is there even a comparison? It's like comparing a traffic accident to a school shooting. One is a tragedy and the other changes the future of an institution. 9/11 was a life changing moment for 10s of millions of people. It wasn't an accident. It was an attack.
  • 9/11 on account of the fact that the iceberg (that Titanic struck), did not do it on purpose.
  • I'm sure the people who lost someone in both tragedies weren't more consoled by the act of one than the other. One thought, even though there were about 3,000 people killed in the Twin Tower attack, nearly 28,000 got out alive or so I saw on a tv program. Think I have those numbers correct. Not too often we hear how many survived. I was in New York one month after 9/11 and it was so sad the pictures and signs pleading as to whether anyone had seen their lost loved one. I'll never forget that as we went into Grand Central.
  • I'd go with 9/11. The sinking of the Titanic was a result of man's hubris; 9/11, a slavish devotion to outmoded ways of thinking and believing.
  • 9/11 was deliberate murder. the Titanic was reckless greed, ambition and manslaughter.
  • Neither had to happen. It was pure carelessness on both parts. The Titanic did not have to sink. For starters, it was going to fast, there was to much ice and it should have slowed down or stop completely for the night. There would have been no deaths. Twin towers did not need to happen. But if rumours were true about terrists wanting to hit the towers, them precautions should have taken place. After the first place hit north tower, all buildings around the towers should have been evacuated. A lot less people would have been kills.
  • uh... duh... uh... Give me a break. September 11, 2001 created more tears and more terror in everybody not because of who did it, but because it was shady, cowardly, criminal and darn WRONG!
  • 9/11, of course. It was a crime. Titanic was an accident.
  • 9/11 because I was able to feel the sorrow and agony even though I was in Asia at that time and the pain was so unbearable.
  • 9-11, because it was a deliberate act of terrorism that killed thousands in three separate attacks. The Titanic, while a huge tragedy, was an unfortunate accident. Many lives were lost, but 9-11 affected so many more people.
  • 9/11. 3000 died and thousands more are dying from the effects of breathing the dust. 9/11 was murder and that makes it much worse than any accident. Also 9/11 was an inside job which makes it even worse. I just hope those traitors are one day brought to justice. Check out Loose Change 2nd edition and http://www.infowars.com
  • 9/11. The Titanic tragedy was a natural accident. 9/11 was cold, calculated murder without remorse
  • 9/11 of corse, even though my relative was on the titanic on that unfortunate day :(
  • 9/11--it was no accident..it was deliberate
  • Hard to say. Both involve us believing that nothing bad could ever happen to us. One was a deliberate enemy action in a long-fought war where we had disregarded our enemies, the other was an accident exacerbated by our deliberate ignorance of our fallibility and vulnerability. I am going to give the nod to 9/11 though, partly for it's larger death toll, but mostly because the Titanic didn't turn a sizable segment of our population into fearful, ignorant racists with a burning desire to commit genocide against a whole region of the world merely due to the actions of a few.
  • 9/11 no doubt worse. Titanic was a freak accident. 9/11 was a TERROIST ATTACK.
  • I'm in the minority here, but I think that the Titanic was worse. Hear me out. Even though striking an iceberg was unfortunate, nothing had to go the way it did. The flaws in the build of the Titanic were KNOWN before the ship set sail and could have been avoided. And also, the decision to add more lifeboats to the craft was written off as too costly and unnecessary. The ship may have been traveling too fast as well. Although Officer Murdoch saved nearly all of the survivors, the others loading the lifeboats were ineffective, not ready for the emergency. (Esp. that whole let's search for all the women and make the men wait.) Oh, and when the Titanic sent out its distress calls, a nearby ship ignored the message and so another ship had to go out of its way, robbing those on the Titanic of precious minutes that could have saved their lives. With 9/11, the US apparently had no knowledge of the attacks. The percentage of people saved was much greater than with the Titanic. Albeit, many in the 9/11 attacks died trapped beneath rubble, in my opinion, I would rather die instantaneously like most in 9/11 than freezing in the ocean, never to be found.
  • You really have to ask? 9/11. The Titanic's sinking was an accident!
  • 9/11, because it was done by humans and not by nature.
  • 9/11'' china was to blame for the ship' the us goverment was to blame for 9/11 .
  • They were both tragic events but if I had to select I will go with 9/11 because far more people were killed, it was also done intentionally, tragic deaths
  • they both are in a sense equally bad, there isnt a better or worse, people died, and for no acceptable reason
