All of these truthers should play Desert Bus. It's a game about the 9/11 conspiracy.

You just have to keep playing. The answers are there.

Well, the government hands out talking points which the talking heads read as news. The government also provides experts for interviews. Their comments are also taken as news. I'd post the expose' video Rick Sanchez made, but I cannot find it. Anyone?

Penn and Teller, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are elitists. There is religion, conservatism, and traditionalism in that lot. They are just a tease to make you think you are in the know. Their real agenda is to get richer.

It does, yet this just shows your mentality. Just as bad as the guys in this video showing there ''proof'' of collapse.

This, cannot be changed for you it seems. only hope that its written out pretty soon.

PENN and TELLER are, once again, doing what they do best: Slight of hand. Unfortunately, many people will glide along haplessly with their manipulative reasoning, and do what P&T want them to do: Avoid thinking about and asking the REAL questions.

The REAL conspiracy behind 9/11 is not whether or not it happened, as certainly the towers are gone and thousands lost their lives. Thus, featuring a Fire Chief to parry ALL conspiracies by stating he was there and lost friends only counters those that for some reason the horror of the event has them locked into some kind of denial that the event didn't take place at all. However, confirming that the event actually happened does nothing to explain away the conspiratorial "who was REALLY behind 9/11?, and, Why?," and the details thereof. P&T cleverly attempt to mass the two distinct issues together, and for me, they come off as trying to protect those behind the conspiracy with flashy yet abusive stage techniques.

When I present or attend top level science conferences [with a broad range of informed AND uninformed people attending] that might, in some way, touch upon topics related to psychic ability or UFO's, there is always a speaker in attendance who's job is to pull a P&T: To diffuse the issue with a lot of deceptive and manipulative reasoning, parrying away the heart of the issues. I watch in horror as audience members ignorantly and stupidly follow the speakers reasoning away from the really great questions, like sheep in a field.

Here is some evidence for you Chesster from the STATEMENT BY JAMES G. QUINTIERE, PROFESSOR, DEPARTMENT OF FIRE PROTECTION ENGINEERING, UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND for the House Science Committee's hearing on NIST's Investigation of the World Trade Center Collapse: (Over 35 years of experience in fire research. Worked in the fire program at NIST for 19 years, leaving as a division chief. Currently at the University of Maryland since. Founding member and past-Chair of the International Association for Fire Safety Science—the principal world forum for fire research):

3. Spoliation of a fire scene is a basis for destroying a legal case in an investigation. Most of the steel was discarded, although the key elements of the core steel were demographically labeled. A careful reading of the NIST report shows that they have no evidence that the temperatures they predict as necessary for failure are corroborated by findings of the little steel debris they have. Why hasn't NIST declared that this spoliation of the steel was a gross error?
my bolding/italics

To repeat, leaving aside for now the issue of spoliation of the fire scene, there is "no evidence that the temperatures they predict as necessary for failure are corroborated by findings" from inspection of the key elements of the core steel by NIST.

Its starting to piss me off how the conspiracy theory is just becoming another market, Its becoming pop Like everything that try to tell us the truth. I.E. Hip Hop and Rock & Roll. But now its more blatant than subtle messagws in music and the conspiracy of corrupt govts its self is becoming the the new Pop culture. You notice how everyone on on tv who talks about 911 and other things are made out to be loony's or stupid when in fact most of the people who look into this these things have done a lot more research than the people who just sit and watch these shows.

I can trust a couple of illusionists completeley.

So they're illusionists when they disagree with you, but credible when they agree? You people have no standards, and thats proof enough for the rest of us that 9/11 wasn't an inside job.

Well enlighten us, share with us your truth about what happened...

I feel sorry for ya buddy you are on a conspiracy site just to make silly comments... so why even bother being here if you refuse to join the debate? Debate like an American... not one of those Brits in Parliament who just hurl insults and accomplish nothing.


Debate like an American? and are you the paragon of such reasoned debate? Lincoln and Adams would be so proud!

Agree with you on our politicians though,thankfully it is,mainly, just insults that they hurl at those they disagree with and not B-52s or cruise missiles.

Penn is a fellow at a think thank, and the show has a history of being way unbiased, they even diasgree with what they present sometimes... but acknowledge truth when presented...

I think you said it all right there, although I might disagree with what I am presenting too, I'm a fellow at a think thank as well

Physics is incapable of giving a damn about psychology or conspiracies.

Penn and Teller are playing psychological association games.

Hmm, did you watch the video? If not do, and don't write silly comments...


So anyhow, so you are basically saying that you will not accept any proof that does not contribute to your theories? I think there is a guy in that video that shares your logic, check out video they interview people that were there... so how about trusting that your comment is silly, uninformed, and very rude. Watch video before making silly comments that spit on the face of the people in the video.

Heres an interview with with a people who were there!
Interview With Survivors

See if you notice who the first person thats interviewed, prayed to!

Also Penn and Teller use alot of terrible examples of what some Truthers really believe.
They debunked nothing.
And instead came across almost like some sort of PsyOp Puppets. First off they mention the fact that at least 49% want truth, and honesty...but label them "f****** crazy"...this is not is drivel to make you feel like you would to be crazy if you dare question what government told you.
What i know is that WTC7 was "Pulled"(Definition-Demolished) and Towers 1&2 coming down exactly the same way, explain that, and i might be swayed towards the "It Was Just Too Hot Theory".
Also if it was so hot how did people who jumped not melt faster than Steal?
The Steal would have had to start Weakening instantly for it to fall as fast as it did...i suppose human skin and tissue is just much more resiliant than metals.

Penn ~ "Its important to nip this paranoid fantasy, before it takes root in the national conscience!".
This seems like a despearate plea, for us to forget what weve heard and what weve seen in the last 10 years.
The mainstream views, and theorys were hard to believe from day one. The 9/11 Commisions report of the official story ignored key facts, evidence, proof and also alot of questions from Familys of the victims. They continue to ignore you.

Im done with 9/11 forums until it is fuly investigated.

I had only read your post and responded it to it , I rarely read the follow up posts from others as usually most of it is just personal opinion.
However I did read your response to my post, which I then responded to!

I havent done any research into 9/11 other than what I've read on ATS or other news sites.
However as I have already made my mind up about 9/11 based on the fact that the Bush knew about the plane jacking and done nothing well , that summed it up for me , followed by osama's family being flown out, then the market gains for some companies and then finally the invasion of iraq!

You wont really get much evidence about 9/11 other than the evidence individually gathered by those who live around the area or those with access to the information. Or those with a vested interest or those asked as consultants.
The official investigation , well they took away all that metal , and all of those pilots who stated that the flight itself was impossible.
I mean why would you believe a person "John Lear " for example , who has more flight time than almost everyone ( i exaggerate) however you get my point , he knows for a fact it was impossible.As many other pilots have claimed. yet someone with little to now flight training managed the impossible.
Then you have all the structural engineers examining the collapse and going on record to claim it was impossible.

Then you go on to use two comedian / magicians , to independently debunk the conspiracy!
you find them more credible than a pilot with thousands of flight hours and almost every FAA license in existance!

Anyways we wont ever hear the truth about 9/11 because as far as the US government is concerned is done with ! Move along , these arent the droids your looking for!

I quote bill hicks
" heres Gladiators , go back to sleep america"

lmao, right. like i'm supposed to believe anything that comes out of penn jillette's mouth? give me a break. this episode of penn & tellers bs (can't actually write the name of the show on ats) is exactly that. bs. it is one of the most biased debunkumentaries i have seen in my 25 years of life.

he presents no evidence. none what so ever. everything he does present is evidence that shows how little the people actually trust the official story. the only thing that penn does is talk in his annoying, condescending voice about how "loony" people must be for not believing the government.

let's see, penn says that the american public should not be shown 9/11 footage ever again. why, penn? is it because you don't want people to subjectively analyze the footage? well then he goes on to show the footage anyway, pretty much showing what a hypocrite he really is. gee, thanks penn. thanks for wasting my precious time with your bs. penn and teller's bs, that's exactly what it is. bs.

Edit: oh and as if i had to add anything else for the people of ATS to consider.

Building 7.

and since we are talking about conspiracy , well why do you think they bumped of Osama,
he knew all the dirty sordid business the CIA had been conducting because he was trained by them.
Had Osama been taken to trial , like every criminal / war criminal should , then he would have ratted
out everyone he knew about and every pie the CIA had its sticky fingers in!

Osama would have stated that 9/11 was planned , by him with american handlers or something to that effect.
we will never know about 9/11 because the biggest conclusive evidence was dumped over the side of a ship!

All everyone wanted was to hear it from the horses mouth , hell even the CIA were caught making up fake Osama tapes !

FIrst off you must have been trying 2 incite a conspiracy forum riot with your video and your comments that followed. Every truther in here has watched every version of Loose Change there is. Plus I'm sure read several books that covered the real truth trying to build a strong enough case pointing to evidence obvious of the conspiracy. You want us to do the research for you 2 prove what? If you can't see the obvious line between fact and fiction you got problems. A 9 1/2 minute video disproving what the average 9/11 truth documentary spent over 2 1/2 hours breaking down crash by crash.

This post is flat out offensive and should not only be taken down but I think you should be flagged with a warning at the least. THe damn info under the vid even says "Penn & Teller Bull#." # these assholes. The first minute of the video is already wanting me to snatch them up and hang em upside down in front of a 9/11 truth mob.

Your support of the info in this vid and offensive statements throughout the thread deserves at least a nice solid double bitchslap if not a good ol fashion malay because of it. You've wasted everyone's time with this entire thread and thanks for taking attention away from the important Elenin issue at hand for the next 72 hours.

I am a fan of Pen and Teller's show, and it is often very entertaining. HOWEVER, I have watched this episode several times, and have many qualms with it.

1. No mention whatsoever of Building 7, which is what I would consider this most compelling evidence for controlled demolition. It makes their job much easier not even addressing this completely impossible collapse.

2. Pen says at one point something along the lines of "Conspiracy theorists just can't handle the real reality of how there are actually terrible people out there who want to harm us, so they create one which is emotionally easier to deal with." This logic makes zero sense to me- accepting that our government staged a horrific attack against our own country is much harder to deal with than taking the official story as fact. From my own personal experience, I fought against the ideas of 9/11 being an inside job for several years, simply because if they were true, the implications would be so vast that it would change my entire perception and way of living. It was much more comfortable living within the mindset provided by the MSM, than the uncomfortable truths which I now accept

3. Pen says it is disrespectful to the people who died on 9/11 to look into alternate explanations other than the official story. I completely disagree- if anything you are paying tribute and respect to the dead by searching for why they were killed.

4. Pen only interviews the most ridiculous of people in the 9/11 truth movement, and not only that, he does everything in his power to make them seem idiotic, thus painting the entire movement with a broad brush.

I lost a lot of respect for this program due to this episode

Thanks for showing the other views of this first of all

- Penn and Teller I did use to like their bull# show. However, you quickly realize they use Straw man and pity techniques through out the show.

For instance, Here is this whack job out of an hour footage, lets show the most brutal stuff he does...including acting like a chicken (which I think they planted him just to show that), give his input then make fun of him and bash him. Next scene goes to talking about firemen and how brave they are. Yet firemen and police alike still think it could be fake.

That's exploiting iconic individuals (or a group). Too many logically fallacies that if you see what they are doing is basically arguing that if you believe this, you too are crazy. With no real credible arguments on both sides.

I stopped watching the show just because I realized how wrong they can be and only appeal to the masses.

Jimmy Walter = peon, look how he jumps around when speaking, purple Look unorganized, mocking people who actually do research. 6:10 proves all this, how pathetic.
