" Loose Change, 9/11 Mysteries, Alex Jones, and all the other kooks out there who are – *%^#*% – lying about, distorting, and misrepresenting the facts to further their personal agendas.
" I was a true believer of all this controlled demolition nonsense for a time. I never cared about the physics or the claims of pseudo-"experts." What always did it for me was the fact that there was never a decent response to any of these questions by the government. Even the hit pieces you’d see on 9/11 were always personal attacks. The mainstream never contested the actual "facts" movies like Loose Change presented.
Or so it seemed. After watching Screw Loose Change, I delved into the world of 9/11 Truth debunking. Among my favorites are the Screw Loose Change Blog and 9/11 Myths Finally, someone answered all these pertinent questions with something that was a bit foreign to me… facts agreed upon by the experts.
There are no facts in the 9/11 Truth Movement. Just a lot of theories, which eventually break down to "hey, we’re just asking questions" if someone questions the validity of such. No structural, civil, or any engineers agree with the truthers. Yet, most of my friends will try to explain the hard physics involved in structural collapses. None of these people are engineers, physicists, or even in a scientific field, for that matter. Someone’s supposed to take their word over an expert’s?
Indeed. Popular Mechanics thoroughly debunked this, as have numerous others, as I pointed out in the piece here at National Writers Syndicate earlier, debunking the Iraq supposed Demolitions Expert who had already decided in his mind when the story first came out that the official version wasn't true.
You see, that's the thing in today's day and age: people decide what their position is first, and then they back their facts into their position. This is not rational thinking or the way to come to a reasonable conclusion on any issue. The rational thing to do would be to weigh the facts before you make up your mind.
Mike Metzger has been able to distinguish fact from fiction; truth from propaganda. It's a well-written confession, and I think he's headed in the right direction. I only hope that more people will really investigate the truth, because the Truther movement is giving "truth" a bad name.
