9/11 Conspiracy Theories
I subscribe to Skeptic magazine, and in a recent issue they have an article about 9/11 conspiracies (you can read the article here). These are the people that think the government was behind everything you saw that day. The Towers didn't collapse because of the planes; they were controlled demolitions (so was WTC 7). The Pentagon wasn't hit by a plane; a missle did the damage you saw. Oh, and United 93 was either re-routed in secret to an undisclosed location and an empty plane was crashed, or the military shot that plane down. The article pretty much eviserates any "truth" behind this theories.
It's kind of sick to see these people make these statements, whether they really believe them or not. Try to find any video footage from 9/11 from YouTube were somebody isn't even making comment after comment about these whacky nutjob theories or editing the footage to try and make you believe their point of view. I found it quite difficult to find any raw footage from that day on YouTube - I had to really hunt and peck to find anything "good". I really don't get why some people are so easily persuaded to believe the most ridiculous theories. Just remember, if you believe this stuff, you're on the same side as Rosie O'Donnell. 'nuff said!
