I have no point. I'm not arguing anything, you're the one trying to convince me your grass is greener.

Suspicion does not need evidence.. It's like when police profile crackers in black neighborhoods.. There is no evidence they are doing something fishy, but it's not unreasonable to be suspicious of them.

I did my research less than ten years ago so I'm on the leg up.

I'm about as far from being a truther as anyone you'll ever meet. I believe about 99.9% of everything about 9/11. There's just a few points that stand out as sketchy in my mind. Again, why did the plane follow the exact path of that line in the grass when hitting the Pentagon?

Because that's the path it took and because Bush is evil.

What do you think it suggests?

How dare you not believe 100% of the official story.

What I'd like to know is why you are so vehemently against questioning authority? Isn't it a necessary evil to keep them in check?

Even if you think my views are completely ridiculous, it's good to make the government explain themselves and not blindly accept their word.. it's kind of like a shitty example of an appeal to authority fallacy.

Having researched this particular instance quite a bit, I don't think that it's particularly valid. It's obviously important to be skeptical but that doesn't mean that every case requires denialist levels of skepticism (you know, given the evidence at hand).

They did. So did many non-governmental organizations.

You do understand that the reasons i gave for my skepticism would hold up in our justice system as an acceptable motive?
