I've done a bit of "debunking" in this forum. Let's see:
What are 'debunker's' motives for being on 9/11 forums?
Personally, I was profoundly affected by the events of 9/11. I watched the event unfold on live television. Unlike anything else I had ever witnessed,
I was shocked, horrified, frightened, and angered by what I saw. I wanted answers. And I wanted justice. I still do. I'm curious by nature, so where I
find discussions of interest, I participate. People have tried make something out of the fact that I have only posted on ATS in THIS forum. Why? I was
personally affected by 9/11. I can't say that about aliens, area 51, bigfoot, or secret societies.
'Debunkers' what are you motives for devoting so much time to arguing with 'truthers'?
For one thing, I get pissed-off when I see what I believe to be misinfo, disinfo, ignorance, rumor, innuendo, and propaganda, being peddled as "truth"
on the internet or anywhere else. Those things are harmful and dangerous. So I speak up. It's a natural response. What's the mystery?
Additionally, I like the challenge of a puzzle or mystery. I like to find answers. When I see questions proposed with answers I don't buy, I like the
challenge of uncovering the truth. Or at least exposing the fallacy of a bogus answer. It's fun.
Some of you have spent many hours on 9/11 forums each day for years, constantly guarding the official reports, why would anyone bother to do that,
if you believe the OS is correct?
Personally, I have never "guarded the official reports". Some of you are very prone to black and white thinking. The assumption is that if I don't buy
your conspiracy theory, I must therefore believe and support everything the government has reported. WTF? Just because I don't believe you doesn't
mean I believe "them".
If the OS is as sound and correct as you always claim, then why the need to keep telling people?
It's not about the OS being sound and correct. I'm a skeptic. When any conspiracy theory becomes LESS absurd to me than the Government's absurdities,
then I might refocus my attention. So far though, it hasn't happened.
Why are you on a 9/11 'conspiracy theory' websites if you believe the OS?
The propagation of misinfo is always harmful. It's in my nature to expose what I believe to be lies.
Why would you care to 'debunk' anything if the OS stands up for itself?
Why do you care to debate "OSers" if your smoking guns are so smokin?
Why would you care what a 9/11 'conspiracy theorist 'or 'truther' says if the OS is correct?
Why do you care what a debunker says if you know it's wrong? I think we all care when we hear being propagated what we believe to be lies.
Again--what's the mystery here?
If the OS was so water tight then surely you would not be worried about what 9/11 'conspiracy theorists' think?
Nohing's water tight. But bull# always stinks.
Why do you spend so much time on 9/11 forums if there is nothing for you to gain?
