Why do we really need to know what happened to Britannic anyways.
 
Why did Columbus want to go to America? Why do we send probes into space? Why do archaeologists dig in Egypt? Human instinct for discovery and examining their environment.

Why do we really need to know anything about anything? Maybe it's better for us all to just sit around tweeting about what we wore today.

I love finding out about new stuff doesn't mean i have to know about every single thing in the world though.The answer was why do we need to know if it is a mine or a torpedo that sunk the Britannic.

The last time i checked Britannic is a little different than a space probe and Columbus was looking for a quick route to Asia not America so he couldn't of wanted to go to America because he didn't know it existed at the time what he actually wanted to do is find a quick route to Asia.

Uh.... some of us here actually care and want to know the facts about Britannic along with knowing the actual facts of want sunk her. If one doesn't care about what sunk her, then why even care to learn about Britannic or for that matter any other ship.

Im just wondering why we really need to know that's all.Im all into finding new stuff about Britannic i just want to know why people are so into it because there are alot of reasons to like Britannic without being interested in Titanic.

While I think that it would be extremely interesting to know the truth behind what happened to the Britannic once and for all, I think, like anything, it's near on impossible to prove one way or another after almost a century and after all those who bore witness to it have long passed on.

Then again, isn't that half the thrill of it, trying to solve the unsolveable?

Opinion has always been divided between a mine or a torpedo. Personally I believe it was a mine but that's not based on anything other than guesswork.

Cheers,
Adam.

Not really. Studying the Britannic is no different than studying the stars. It's human discovery.

>> Columbus was looking for a quick route to Asia not
>> America so he couldn't of wanted to go to America

That's actually not the point. The point is that studying the Britannic is human discovery. The need (for some) to understand both their natural environment and history.

I guess I don't understand why it would matter one way or the other. Everyone has their interests. Some like to search for routes to Asia. Some like to dive and understand shipwrecks.
