    hm, i dont honestly know because i have never looked in any great depth into each argument for and against, until then i will base my judgement on the fact that i hope a government could never kill so many of its own people and that it would possibly be difficult to get people to hijack the plane and then kill themselves(although its possible soem us person could be in contact with suicide bombers to give them some help i guess)
    as it is i dont think anyone will ever learn the truth, not unless Wikileaks has something interesting on it...
    New question, what would happen to america if it was revealed that 9/11 was from the us government?

    I always find it interesting how the irregularities of the way in which the buildings fell are pointed out not by structural engineers or top industry experts, but by hippies and teenagers that want to be angry about something. If it were a conspiracy, do you not think that given the MASSIVE public interest some substantial evidence would have been uncovered by now? A person could make billions cashing in on a story like that! :dontknow:

    I hate it when people in 2010 still talk about that Loose Change bull****.
    1.: Here is a site that debunks the lies and distortions in Loose Change: http://screwloosechange.blogspot.com/
    2.: Did you know that when the guys started writing the film, it was supposed to be fiction movie about the US Government orchestrating 9/11, but they got so wind up in their plot, that they started to believe it and decided to change it to a documentary? What a bunch of loosers.
    3.: The collapse of the twin towers is one of the most extensively studied building collapses in engineering history. So far I haven't seen a scientific attack on the official NIST report that scientificly explained how the towers collapsed. I bet 99% of conspiracy theorists haven't even read it.

    I think we should have more respect for the victims of 9//11 and let them R.I.P.

    Those who died will never be forgotten.

    Can you relate this to the topic of the thread? I'm not sure what you're getting at.

    An absolute shedload of scientists and engineers decided against the findings.

    Plenty of experts came out saying things didn't add up. That's what makes this conspiracy theory so interesting.

    And any crazy conspiracy theorist will say "ahh but those experts were under duress by the government to find the government-approved results" lol.

    But more often than not, the people who come out in favour of the conspiracy are experts in a completely different field!

    Conspiracy theories are a bit of interest of mine, or rather the study of group paranoia.

    There's an excellent video of Dylan Avery (the dude who did loose change) on CBC's the hour and basically stammers for 5 minutes when he's asked if the buildings were rigged with explosions, what happened to the passengers? I'll try and find it.

    In the mean time here's Alan Moore (the dude who wrote Watchmen and V for Vendetta amongst others) take on the whole thing:

    The questions about the third tower haven't been answered. That is the only thing that makes me think it was an inside job. Almost 10 years and there's been no answer to why a building otherwise unaffected by the planes completely collapsed in a demolition fashion. Also the fact that it was a headquarters for the CIA is extremely fishy.

    You really think its hard to make up the 'facts' that these concpiracy theorist make up?

    Even if the governent did do it, just think of how many people would be needed to be involved, you think they all would want 3,000 people dead?, think how would you be able to live with knowing that you killed 3,000 innocent people.
    When people kill and get away with it how do you think they feel?

    They have been answered completely by the official NIST report along with everything else. It's also explained on several conpiracy debunking websites. Next time Google before you don't know something. But just to save you some time:

    The USA gets comparatively little oil/petroleum from Iraq. 422,000 barrels a month compared to 3,000,000 from Canada & Nigeria.
    Thats what you think.

    but why?
    Because there is about a 100 times more evidence to argue against conspiracies than there is to argue for them.
