While I see your point, I can't agree that the debates are a bad thing. If we all just decided to settle down into our particular view, then the
"grinding and whittling down" of the nonsense could and would never happen and the REAL TRUTH would just sit as a question in the back of
everyone's minds with nothing being done to pursue it.
I think differently than most ppl do these days I guess. I am not content when I am not being challenged in my views and "put to the test." I can't
settle in the apethetic mentality of lets agree that we disagree...not on an important matter such as this one.
Although, I think that those who are clinging to their sci-fi explanation of events and any other outrageously ridiculous claims really should be
allowed to just believe what they want and ignored by those who are serious about the truth.
There are questions that need to be answered, it is just a matter of which questions are the right ones. I no longer believe the questions have to do
with the events themselves, but the way strings were pulled on the puppets (in other words, what events served to be catalysts leading to the events)
and who the ppl pulling the strings really are (I am not referring to politicians, gov't employees, or the terrorists themselves, but the ones that
we don't see too much of).
But until ppl can
a) understand that it was boeing 767(s) with enough fuel to fly them clear across the country that brought down the world trade centers
(b) that building 7 was not brought down by controlled demolition but by a series of events resulting from the original attacks
(c) that a 757 did indeed crash into the pentagon and was shredded by the reinforced beams so cleverly used in the building to allow minimal damage in
events such as the one carried out on 9/11 and
(d) that they did find remains and identify passengers of flight 93 in the crash in shanksville..
until this is seen to be factual, the real and even more important questions will continue to be overpowered by the outrageous claims and denial that
ppl are so persistent in believing.
So, here we are 7 years after the fact and too many ppl still believe false claims that have come out since that day. It has only been within this
month that I realized the more logical scenario was that terrorists carried these attacks out using hijacked planes and then in learning that, it
suddenly became clear what the actual questions should have been all along and who they should have been directed toward.
Without ppl willing to carry out these debates and forcing the other side to back up their claims with proof, I would still be looking in the wrong
These debates are NOT a joke to me because for the first time, I am learning something important that is so rarely taught to us in this country... not
to fall for BS no matter WHO it comes from
