Holograms? What would be the point? Y'know the space shuttle flies without any actions by the "pilot". The only thing the pilot has to do while
landing is deploy the landing gear, and that's just to let the "pilot" feel like he's actually flying the thing.
So why go through the rigamarole of projecting hologram planes, with passenegers that actually exist, when you can just use the darn planes and
passengers themselves? I'm not saying that I believe -- meaning: have faith without proof -- that the gubmint was responsible for the 9-11 attacks
(because I don't), but why in the world would they employ 22nd century technology to pull off an illusion that could more simply and easily be done
with 20th century strategury?
The logical gymnastics that some are inspired to perform are mind boggling sometimes. "The planes left no shadows." "Shadows are clearly
evident." "Hologram light can cast shadows!" "Where does the sound come from?" "Holograms of light can make vibrations in the air and there
was no deflected debris immediately after impact." "Clearly there was." "No, it was driven by the explosion (that happened a quarter second
John Lear, you say now that yer only keeping an open mind to possibilities, but began an earlier post with the words, "This is how it was done", and
linked to that au.af.mil page that doesn't support the "plane-was-a-hologram" position at all. You say you "assume" that the government's
holograms would be able to produce the appropriate accompanying sound as well. Why in the world are you "assuming" anything?
Brainsucker, my friend. You say "I don't discount anything other than that plane hit the WTC". You have made up your mind about that and refuse
to consider, acknowledge or comprehend the evidence that has been presented because, imo, that would risk having to accept it.
The thing about deciding that a conspiracy exists is that, no matter what evidence is presented, it only means that the conspiracy is even more vast
than we thought. Does the phrase "deny ignorance" ever mean "deny the bleedin' obvious"? For the sake of ATS, I hope not!
So, the hologram planes were directed with a pen on a screen to impact points on the towers at the precise moments that the planted bombs would
explode in the facades in the perfect shape of real planes? And all those planes never crashed and the passengers were taken to some secret place
where they've been either kept in quarantine or were "offed"? So what made the crater and aircraft debris and DNA of the passengers in that field
in Pennsyvania? "Uuuh... a sooper seekret gubmint missile!" "Why? Why not the plane?" "Because... uuuh... because there were no planes!".
GOD: Heavens to Betsy, already. 9-11 was perpetrated by muslim terrorists.
brainsucker: Wow, God's a Mason!
johnlear: Nah, God, like me or you, just doesn't know what the government knows.
GOD: I know everything.
brainsucker: Then You know too much!
GOD: Maybe it's time for another flood.
johnlear: Dick Cheney can tell You how to do it... I assume.
Oh, by the way, the Mets never really won game 6 of the 1986 World Series. Y'see, the actual ball that Mookie Wilson hit went into Bill Buckner's
glove, but the Mets (playing in the vacinity of the WTC, mind you) projected a transparant baseball that seemed to go right through his legs. Buckner
-- believing his eyes rather than his hands -- never even realized that he'd snagged the ball and let it drop right near first base, so close that no
one noticed the white ball at the corner of the white bag.
John, I think I finally understand your conspiracy theory leanings. This is fun!
But, y'gotta admit, yer statement that (paraphrased from memory) "you know your close to the Truth when they start calling you an idiot" is just
kinda silly, right?
With all due respect, of course!
