It was only a "technical" ad hominem, I didn't take it personally!
Descent+initial approach+final approach=35%. That's more than landing (24%)
Yes you can read it that way - however it does sort of depend on which numbers you choose to add together.
My reasoning was that the phases of flight that are inevitably low and or slow account for the majority of accidents. In those phases, all other things being equal, an aircraft with a lower stalling speed will generally be safer.
Of course there are other factors.
The safety scrutiny that commercial airliners operate under far exceeds that of private aviation. Hence private aviation is much more dangerous - and flying cars would definitely fall under private aviation rules because they would otherwise be uneconomic.
The accident rate in private aviation is only tolerated because it is such a minority pursuit.
9th commandment? "Thou shalt not bear false witness."
I would contend that accusing someone of violating the ninth commandment, when what they are actually supposed to have doen is violated copyright, is actually itself a violation of the ninth commandment!
but my understanding is that it's a ridiculous collection of easily debunked internet arguments, with paper thin non-believer characters written simply to deliver the trite message of the movie's climax with no regard for actual human behaviour or logic.
When you say "understanding" I think you mean "expectation based on my own preconceived predjudices".
Of course you might be right - but you don't know and you should allow the possibility of a good film with a positive Christian message - eg The Scarlet and the Black
"It has been said that Christianity started in Israel, then was taken to Greece and turned into a philosophy. Then it was taken to Rome where it was made into an institution. Later, it was taken to Europe where it became a culture, and then it was brought to America where it was made into a business enterprise".
I find the term homophobia to be offensive for the following reason.
A phobia is an irrational fear, not under the control of who has it.
Using the word homophobia as a term of abuse - which is what it effectively has become is offensive to people who suffer from phobias in the same way that use of the word "spastic" in a derogatory way (which was common in the 60's and 70's) is abusive of people with cerebal palsy.
I very much doubt however that that was what was in the head of the facebook censor.

last para should read
Light (unpressurised) aircraft are limited to lower altitudes than airliners (10000ft vs 30000ft) and hence are unable to take advantage of the greater fuel economy and/or higher speed that is possible at greater altitudes.
