Close to half (48%) agrees the U.S. government and 9/11 Commission are not covering up anything, yet nearly as many (42%) believe the government and 9/11 Commission are covering up. One in ten (10%) is unsure
Ignore anything that doesn't come from an official source?
When the towers fell, the people at work sought my opinion because everyone knew that I paid attention to world affairs. "Who do you think did it Terry?". All day long. Who did it? While everyone was speculating this group or that group or "maybe our government", I understood that everyone was looking for an enemy.Some one to blame.
My answer to all on that morning was the same to person after person. Once someone had heard my reply, they went on about their search for the culprit.
My answer was very simple. "It doesn't matter who did it. What matters is who is going to take advantage of it. They are the ones we need to watch out for." Who will shout the loudest and the longest.
For a while I paid attention to all the information pouring out of the mainstream and then the counter information streaming on the web and what did I see? People all trying to take advantage of the disaster.
In 2003 I stopped paying attention to 9/11. Everyone was right and everyone else was wrong.
I liked your title, but had I known it was about 9/11 I would have skipped it and found something else to read.
The point is thats not happening right now on the side of the Truther's lots of stuff is being misrepresented as a "fact" when really its "false" or highly debatable.

Understandable but you must also admit that there are people that will find a conspiracy in anything.
why do so many people now believe in 9/11 conspiracies
And its not a good thing.
The problem, as I see it, is the existence whole army of keyboard warriors of truth who are out to impose their version of 9/11 truth on to the whole spectrum of social media.
It is now almost impossible to research 9/11 without being confronted with page after page of 9/11 conspiracies.
and pump out lots of truther propaganda.
9/11 truthers turn to them and ignore the 198,000 (at least) who it would seem disagree with them.
it is this strange idea that a very small minority of a group can be trusted in the face of a overwhelming majority who disagree with them
who buy into their rubbish
That is what I see 9/11 truth as doing, steeling history for future generations, robbing them of the truth
they are not about truth they are about lies
it is an attempt to balance the truth and the lies
They are simply replacing the established historical narrative they disagree with
To those of us who have researched 9/11 extensively, it is a good thing. It means more and more people keep waking up to what is likely the real truth about what happened on that day.
Are we seriously going to label the 9/11 families as keyboard warriors? They are the ones that started the 9/11 truth movement to begin with by asking questions, not getting answers, and doing their own investigating.
Are we seriously going to label architects, engineers, scientists, physicists, psychologists, many with PhD's, as keyboard warriors?
But yes, alternate conspiracies concerning 9/11 are plentiful around the internet. And most people don't even have any knowledge about alternate theories. At least they'll have a plethora of information to educate themselves with.
100,000 of the 198,000 could agree with the alternate 9/11 conspiracy theories.
Out of all the architects and engineers that have made public statements, there are far more that agree with alternate 9/11 conspiracies than agree with the official conspiracy.
It's amazing to think that some of the most-educated people in the world with MS, BS, and PhD degrees, are just propagating rubbish because one doesn't agree with their message.
We should contact all the universities that these people went to, and tell these universities that what they're teaching people is rubbish and that MS, BS, and PhD's don't mean anything anymore.
Does the official conspiracy theory automatically become true just because a government entity says it's true, and without providing a shred of physical or forensic evidence?
Again, "lies" in your own opinion
The scientific, forensic, audio/visual evidence, along with witness testimony say otherwise.
survey after survey shows time and time again that the number of people who doubt the official story is growing.
with people from the OS just quoting from official sources and very seldom showing work from their own efforts just as the OP has done here (yawns) yet again.
The vast majority of these conspiracies are so outlandish that anyone can see the lack of logic in them. Blind paranoia isn't new. But it isn't a crime either. Quite frankly, it's easy to ignore of write off someone who is obviously not using logic or common sense. These people disqualify themselves from the discussion with no problem.
