Airline and government officials in Malaysia claim their conclusions are based on “extraordinary evidence.” But naysayers demand to see such evidence.
This disputed ‘evidence’ comes from Inmarsat, the British company which read satellite analysis, along with Britain’s Air Accident Investigation Branch.

Chris McLaughlin, senior vice president of Inmarsat, tells CNN their mathematics-based process is ‘groundbreaking,’ and that space agency experts and Boeing had reviewed their conclusions. Again, empty words providing no proof.

Arthur Rosenberg, an aviation attorney, questions Inmarsat’s careful language, and that of the Malaysian government:  “On the one hand, you have the executive from Inmarsat saying ‘most likely’ and somehow that got booted up to ‘beyond reasonable doubt.’ Implying Malaysian officials stretch the truth, he says:

“I am not convinced that they are certain where this airplane is. I think they have fine-tuned it to a general area, but to say beyond a reasonable doubt this plane went down where they are saying is a stretch.”

The Chinese government is equally suspicious about Malaysia’s conclusions.  According to Lucy Kinder, Hannah Strange, Arron Merat, and Bonnie Malkin of telegraph.co.uk.: “Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Xie Hangsheng has told Malaysia’s ambassador in Beijing that China was demanding Malaysia hand over all relevant satellite data analysis on the missing Malaysian airliner.”

McLaughlin told Kinder, et al: “We worked out where the last ping was, and we knew that the plane must have run Malaysia-Flight-MH370-Pingout of fuel before the next automated ping, but we didn’t know what speed the aircraft was flying at––we assumed about 450 knots.  We can’t know when the fuel actually ran out, we can’t know whether the plane plunged or glided, and we can’t know whether the plane at the end of the time in the air was flying more slowly because it was on fumes.”

In China relatives of victims staged a massive protest and issued this statement:  “At 10 pm on March 25, the Malaysian prime minister sent a statement to the families of MH370 passengers without any direct evidence that MH370 crashed in the south Indian ocean and no people survived.

“From March 8 when they announced that MH370 lost contact to today, 18 days have passed during which the Malaysian government and military constantly tried to delay, deceive the passengers’ families and cheat the whole world. This shameless behavior not only fooled and hurt the families of the 154 passengers but also misguided and delayed rescue actions, wasting a large quantity of human resources and materials and lost valuable time for the rescue effort.

“If the 154 passengers did lose their lives, Malaysia Airlines, the Malaysian government and military are the real executioners who killed them. We the families of those on board submit our strongest protest against them. We will take every possible means to pursue the unforgivable crimes and responsibility of all three.”

Malaysia, aided by its ex-colonial ruler, Britain, may want to move this incident off media’s front page, but it won’t go away.  There are simply too many other possibilities as to where Flight MH 370 might be.  As Christian mystery fiction incurs about all human life: “As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed (2 Corinthians 6: 9).”
