Humans are desperately seeking an explanation as to why a 27-year-old German pilot "intentionally" crashed the plane he was co-piloting, killing the other 149 people on-board. I put the word 'intentionally' in quotes here because it really is very, very hard to make sense of what humans mean when they use that word in this context.
Evidence collected at apartment didn’t include suicide note or indication of motive
The Germanwings co-pilot who appeared to intentionally crash an airliner into a French mountainside, killing himself and 149 passengers and crew, received a note from a doctor excusing him from work but apparently tore it up, a German prosecutor said.
The prosecutor said evidence collected in a search of the apartment of Andreas Lubitz didn't include a suicide note and gave no indication of a political or religious motive for his apparent decision to crash the plane.
“However, documents were confiscated that contained medical information indicating an existing medical treatment,” the Düsseldorf prosecutor said in a statement.
Documents in the apartment showed Mr. Lubitz received a note from his doctor excusing him from work for a period covering the day of the incident, according to the statement. Other such notes were also found...
And so on.
The more perceptive among you may have noticed that Big Brains go haywire all the time, often with disastrous and tragic consequences for other humans or other animals. If you are looking for a "motive" in this or similar cases, you can stop that foolishness right now.
