Testimony from friends and family plus ZERO evidence that he was in fact suicidal.
What evidence was there that the EgyptAir990 pilot was suicidal? I'm sure that you will argue that him losing his rights to fly international flights in the future due to inappropriate behavior towards women in hotels on layovers wouldn't make one suicidal? Just because there is not a trail of suicidal tendencies doesn't mean that somebody might not commit suicide at any point. What you seem to forget is that the reason and actions only matter to the individual, not anybody else. It doesn't matter what any of us think. If the one individual has decided to do something for whatever reason, that's all that matters.
You can't use "maybe" to argue that he 100% did something and at the same time dispute me when I have doubts due to a lack of evidence! That is a failure of rational thinking.
I have never said that I am 100% certain that the Captain did it. Although I believe that is the most likely scenario by a very long shot. As for the motive, I can only guess based on what is known about him and seeing if things can be linked together - and the Anwar verdict on the evening of the flight combined with his political views expressed on his FB page make me lean towards a political motive. When I said "Maybe something, or a cumulation of things" pushed him over the edge that evening you know very well the maybe something I was referring to was the Anwar verdict, and the culmination of things could have been other issues such as family or whatever culminating with the Anwar verdict.
You are holding on to mutually exclusive concepts in your efforts to prove a marginally plausible theory while at the same time, and rather bafflingly, claiming that any other more rational possibility makes no sense.
[cut the rest of your post which again had lots of "maybe"s and "who knows" proving your pet theory yet dismissing everything else]
There is where we will keep disagreeing for now, until at least new information emerges, and that's okay.
IMHO the Captain doing it theory is not a "a marginally plausible theory" and I am not "claiming that any other more rational possibility makes no sense". IMHO the Captain doing it scenario is the most rational scenario - all the other scenarios are "marginally plausible". That is why I offer reason as to why others scenarios don't tick as many boxes IMHO - take the fire scenario for instance - I used some other fire flights such as SR111 and UPS6 as examples of why I think a fire flight was unlikely, or, at least, less likely than the Captain doing it.
I have asked you before; provide your scenario that fits in with what is known about MH370. Go on, offer your scenario that is a "more rational possibility" than the Captain doing it in your opinion. Go on, stop sitting on the fence and just attempting to shoot down other theories. Offer your scenario, otherwise you are just sidetracking this discussion and wasting time.
