So there is nothing left to debate, you have learned everything you would ever need to know about 9/11 you have seen all the arguments and as such you
have no reason to debate anything regarding 9/11.
Unless new information comes to light, I'm confident I have seen most if not all of the information put forth by both sides of the argument. The
debate has been waged to the point of redundancy. You either buy the OS, or you don't. What I am saying is there is no debate to be had between
people who believe in the OS and people who don't. It's been done.
From my side of the fence I see truthers being the most persistent people.
Naturally. Yet the same people who believe the OS always seem to pop up in 9/11 threads. We all know who they are.
why do we need to have our minds changed, my mind would change if i was presented with significant evidence that challenged my current views my mind
has changed in the past so it will change again, but what makes you think that this is about changing minds. I see it as being about learning, i learn
quite a lot through debating with truthers on points regarding 9/11, many might not agree with me on that, but that how i see it.
Ultimately any debate centers around who has made the strongest case for their argument (or who is right). The ability to change your mind is crucial
in this regard, and some people are incapable of doing this.
And i can say the exact same thing, I used to have very strong believes that 9/11 was a inside job.
I'm glad to hear that you have an open mind and are willing to go where you feel the evidence has led you.
errr i thought you said there was nothing to debate?
Perhaps I should have clarified my statement a little more. There is nothing to debate between people who believe the OS and people who don't. It's
beating a very dead horse. The real debate to be had is amongst those who question the OS, which would be a lot easier to have if we weren't
constantly being ridiculed and having our threads derailed by OS proponents.
Really you dont think it would be dull, I do, i think it would also create a breading ground for ignorance just imagine what it would be like if
someone could post a thread about say mini-nukes and noone was around to call out the notion as rubbish.
sites like ATS needs skeptics.
I will admit, I'd like to see the results. I think a lot of people are afraid to post in this forum because they don't want to expose themselves to
full time armchair skeptics that will ridicule the snot out of them. It would be nice to see some questions asked about the who/what/where/why's of
9/11 without having threads derailed by derisive OS proponents.
As for ATS needing skeptics, I completely agree. Being skeptical is healthy. Bashing posters beliefs and derailing threads is not. I'm not saying you
are guilty of this, but I have seen it done on many occasions by other members.
