The sad truth is that even the Malaysia Air Flight 370 families think there is a cover-up of some kind. Every time “debris” is spotted the attempts to reach it is thwarted. That makes it all the more difficult to really believe that this mystery has been solved.
It’s hard to say where the fault lies. It’s too early to point fingers or place blame. But the way this whole situation has been handled has led to people being suspicious. Even the Chinese government allowed families to protest at the Malaysian embassy in China, a rare move for a government that has never permitted public demonstrations.
Until there is definitive evidence that Flight 370 went down, I don’t think anyone will be able to accept that it’s gone. This has moved past the realm of conspiracy theories. Instead of guessing, people need proof.
It’s ironic and fitting, in a way, that it has been a week and a half since we “lost” Malaysia Air Flight 370 and then the cast of Lost reunites at PaleyFest for the 10th anniversary of the show’s debut.
Several members of the Oceanic 815 crew came together along with the show’s creators and producers to dispel some of the myths about the show’s biggest mysteries (spoiler–they explain the church scene during the finale!)
Obviously I do not wish to make light of what’s going on with Malaysia Air Flight 370, but what I do like is that so many people are keeping their hopes up that the plane landed somewhere. Just like Schrodinger’s Cat, at this point the plane is neither crashed nor landed. There is still hope that it’s out there somewhere, intact, and the passengers are safe.
I’ve been waiting to hear what Clyde Lewis had to say about the missing plane. Flight 370 has been missing for days. Terrorism has not been ruled out. A plane crash has not been ruled out. Aliens have not been ruled out. It’s crazy. For all we know, it passed through a temporal rift and is stuck on an island somewhere, just like the passengers from the Oceanic 815 from Lost.
Clyde Lewis has an interesting take on it. So do the callers on his show this evening.
The use of the word “unprecedented” is very interesting. The plane went missing a few days ago and no one knows where it is. Passengers used stolen passports, but now the claim is that they “likely weren’t” terrorists and they might be Iranian. The oil slicks spotted have been ruled out as belonging to Flight 370.
Is anyone else concerned about this? A plane went missing. Passengers were able to board with stolen passports. No one can find the plane. These are all huge problems in my book.
Right now it’s a bit like Schrodinger’s Cat: At the moment, the plane is neither crashed nor safe. It’s somewhere in the middle. And if it didn’t crash, then it has either been hijacked and hidden away somewhere (this is totally possible) or maybe aliens took it. In all seriousness, nothing has been ruled out. Again, this is the problem.
