Frank Pastore was a major-league baseball pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds, Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers. After an injury to his elbow ended his pro career, he devoted his life to preaching and Christian apologetics. He was the host of a very popular Christian talk show in Los Angeles, California. On Nov. 12, 2012, he was invloved in a serious motorcycle accident and passed away on Dec. 7, 2012. A few hours before he was in the accident, he said this on his radio show:
"Isn't it interesting [that] secular science is addressing the question, 'Does man have a soul? Is there such a thing as immaterial reality?' And it's couched in the category of 'is there life after death?"'
"I mean look, you guys know I ride a motorcycle don't you? So, at any moment, especially with the idiot people who cross the diamond lane into my lane, alright, without any blinkers—not that I'm angry about it—but at any minute I could be spread out all over the 210 (Freeway); but that's not me, that's my body parts.
That key distinction undergirds the entire Judeo-Christian worldview and also your pursuit of reality."
