I just got finished watching the National Geographic channel’s “9/11: Science and Conspiracy” special.
Personally, I enjoyed the Popular Mechanics special more, but the Nat Geo show wasn’t so much about the science of the 9/11 attacks as it was the reaction of “truthers” to evidence that undermines their theories.
If it wasn’t obvious by now, there is no way to prove to the truthers that their theories are nuts. The simplest argument is, of course, to challenge them to count all of the co-conspirators who had to have been bought off for the conspiracy to work – the number easily reaches into the thousands or tens of thousands.
Yet, to this day no one has come forward to confess and reveal the conspiracy?
It was also amusing to hear some of the narration from the conspirators’ “bible” – the fauxumentary “Loose Change.” In one of the brief snippets played, the narrator ominously warns about the tyrants using 9/11 to take over the country and control the people.
You’d think that if those evil Republicans could’ve managed a conspiracy along the lines of 9/11, then they could’ve managed to stuff a enough ballot boxes in 2006 and 2008 to hold onto power.
