The Fallacy of Tin Bashing

I think it's convenient for people to bash certain theories as tin or conspiracy no matter how many pieces of evidence one has to the contrary. It's like if it doesnt fall withing their ideology people just look the other way and call the people making the accusations as nuts or fringe. We can go all down the lines the moon landing, JFK, 9/11, birther, UFOs and on and on but I think there is a fallacy to this.

For people to say that government could never cover up such conspiracies because there would be to many people involved and it would leak I submit this to you, The Manhattan Project.

The Manhattan Project was the codename for a project conducted during World War II to develop the first atomic bomb. Project research took place at over thirty sites across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Entire cities were built and the project employed 130,000 people and yet our government not only kept it secret to every country in the world, but they managed to keep it secret to everyone here at home also.

So I say to anyone who thinks our government is dumb and they could never pull of any conspiracies or cover them up then you do so at your own peril. Our government is a lot smarter than anyone of us thinks. Sometimes playing dumb is convenient for pushing an agenda.

Finaly, someone with a bit of a opinion about our Gov. that nails it on the head.
Just take some of the now defunct gov projects kept in secrecy that are just now coming to light.
And then we only only guess at what we will learn in the near future.

I can't agree more. Just look at the Billions spent every year on advanced projects through DARPA. How many of the things that we take for granted were hidden for years until a commercial application was allowed?

For instance. The internet was functional in 1969(admitted, possibly earlier) but didn't see commercialization until the 90s.

Wireless mouses. DARPA
Noise canceling for headsets. DARPA
Directed Energy Weapons (solid state lasers and sonic weapons). DARPA
Stealth. DARPA (okay I don't take it for granted, but its existence is now common knowledge)

and the list goes on and on, some of which we will surely never know about. but there is no secrecy in government. surely someone would speak out
