Quote# 108782

Brandon Bostian was the 32-year-old Amtrak train engineer (driver) who was at the controls on May 12, 2015, when his northbound train accelerated sharply just prior to entering a curve at more than double the speed limit.[1] The train then derailed, killing eight people and injuring more than 200; four days after the crash, 17 passengers continued to be hospitalized.[2] Bostian himself was treated for injuries and released by a hospital the same day of the crash.
Bostian has been a homosexual activist in support of same-sex marriage, which may explain the media support for him after the crash. Bostian was quoted in 2012 as saying:[3]
“It’s kind of insulting to have to beg people for my right to marry. I feel like we shouldn’t even have to have this fight. ”
After the derailment, Bostian told investigators that he could not recall any of the facts surrounding the crash, although on the same day as the crash he did subsequently edit his Facebook profile to darken his image, and also spoke with a friend. Bostian was an expert on trains, with one friend saying he was "obsessed" with them.[4]
When Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter criticized Bostian, not by name, for the reckless speed, the media and the NTSB lashed back at ... Nutter. The media then published stories from friends of Bostian who praised him. The NTSB claimed that Bostian was "extremely cooperative" with the investigation, even though he asserted that he could not recall the circumstances of the crash. Mayor Nutter properly dismissed the theory, promoted by the media, than an unidentified flying object such as a rock may have caused the crash.[5]

Prior Public Statements about Trains
Bostian had publicly criticized the government for not installing technology on trains to prevent the same type of crash in which he participated. When asked about the curious fact that Bostian had made such comments, the lead investigator for the NTSB showed no interested in their evidentiary value.
Bostian retained an attorney quickly after the crash, and Bostian has not appeared in the media himself to explain the excessive speeding and his role in it.

Media Bias
As of six days after the massive crash, Wikipedia still lacked a substantive entry for Brandon Bostian. Meanwhile the liberal Daily Beast ran a headline claiming "How Congress Caused the Amtrak Crash."[6]

An attorney for several of the victims was more candid:[7]
“The conduct of the engineer is both unfathomable and unconscionable. ”

Secondary Education
In 2001, Bostian graduated from Bartlett High School, a public school in Tennessee.[4]

Quote# 107677

Atheistic science is an approach to science that clings to atheistic views of the universe and life, at the complete exclusion of Biblical scientific foreknowledge and non-materialistic phenomena. The hallmark of atheistic science is how it clings to materialistic theories and rejects logic and experimental observations that contradict the atheistic theories.

Examples of absurd beliefs of atheistic scientists:

* that remarkable migration by butterflies and birds can somehow be explained by magnetism
* that there are many "multiple universes" that simultaneously exist
* that time travel can occur through wormholes in the universe
* that intelligent extraterrestrial life exists outside of Earth
* that massive "black holes" exist in tiny spaces, from which not even light can escape
* that unseen "dark matter" permeates the universe
* that the universe is really comprised elastic strings

Is atheistic terrorism worse than Islamic terrorism? Liberal denial prevents honest reporting on whether the Germanwings co-pilot who killed 150 passengers was an atheist.

The gay lobby has been increasingly influential over the Mormon Church, such that by 2015 pro-homosexual agenda legislation began to pass easily in Utah.

Quote# 107318

A logical fallacy is an error in logical reasoning. While the common usage of the word fallacy would include any error in reasoning, in logic a fallacy is defined as a particularly deceptive argument which seems correct, but upon further examination is found to be incorrect.[1] The maker of such an argument, however, need not be aware of its fallacious nature.

[...]

Logical fallacies are the beloved debating tactic of liberals; for this reason, it is not advised to debate them unless you have to, as you will only end up frustrated when one of them inevitably claims global warming is true because Al Gore said so.

"Fidel Castro sits quietly off-stage as history unfolds," deadpans the USA Today headline. Quietly, indeed: a very sick Fidel passed away in Cuban hospital eight years ago, but liberal denial still promotes the communist propaganda.

Quote# 105312

Faith and Science

Faith and logic are essential ingredients of real science and an informed understanding the world.

Faith, a Christian concept, accepts truth without requiring visible proof.

Logic guides the faculty of human reason to determine the truth. However, liberal logic may appear logical, but is actually nonsensical.

Science is based on observation in determining the truth. However, in recent years, science has become increasingly atheistic,[1] rejecting God and his works in explanations of the world and all of human experience. Instead readily embracing pseudo or junk science such as evolution, relativity, global warming and much of cosmology and geology based on a time frame which predates creation. Consequently the rigid logic of creation science is gaining in importance, enabling intelligent people to distinguish real science from atheistic secular junk science.

Quote# 104764

Atheistic science is riddled with self-contradictions. A few examples are:

• atheistic science denies the existence of the unseen, while simultaneously admitting that the entire universe began from the unseen.
• atheistic science promotes the implausible existence of black holes with a religious fervor. Disproved by quantum mechanics, black holes have been discredited most recently by Stephen Hawking, but atheistic science soldiers on in denial of basic logic.
• atheistic science has no plausible theory for the origin of the Moon, and the lunar landing disproved all of its prior theories.
