This is a link to an article that was written for, of all sites, www.cracked.com...
This article does a wonderful job saying most of what i've wanted to say regarding the supposed "9/11 Truth" movement.
I'm not trying to be a troll nor am i doing this to anger anyone... I know many ATS members are ardent "truthers" but I, for one, don't believe a bit
In my eyes, to refer to ANY part of this as "truth" is perverting the word beyond all recognition.
I'm not looking for an argument, nor am i looking to convince anyone or change any minds... But i wanted to share this because i think, especially in
regards to sites like ATS, there isn't enough of a balance between the supporters of the "truth" and, as I see, the actual truth.
I hope, if you are a thinking, rational person you will read this and think about what the "9/11 TRUTH" movement is all about...
For me, it's about human frailty.
We, as a species, are weak.
Wehave this capacity for utter b.s., taking it in, and for some reason believing it whole-heartedly.
I enjoy many of the topics on ATS but I think that, all too often, people are blinded by their own prejudices. We want conspiracies... we want
doomsday... we want to see the worst in mankind. we expect it, we covet it, we see it in nearly all the things that happen around us. This may not be
a concious choice... We may say that we want the opposite but our actions speak louder than words.
There is a severe and frightening lack of skepticism on ATS (and other sites of the like)... a alck of critical thinking... a lack of scientific
All the things we point out as wrong are, in reality, our bread and butter. We trade off of misery.
It's as if we not only predict armageddon but are courting it and helping to usher it in.
Be mad at me for this. Be indignant... scoff, belittle, claim "disinfo" etc.
I, personally, don't care.
But use your brains... and your hearts.
Don't be gullible.
TRULY DENY IGNORANCE.
