The Truth is Out There!

Filed under: 9/11, 9/11Truth, Death Star, Truther — t4toby @ 1:53 pm

I am undecided on the whole 9/11 conspiracy theory situation. My very first thought as I watched the first tower fall (after “Holy Shit!”) was, “Those bastards did it. This will make every one of Big Dick Cheney’s wildest wet dreams a possibility.”

So I started on the side of the ‘Truth’ movement. Since then I have moved more to the middle.

Anywho, this cracks me up no matter which side of the debate I happen to be on:

Uncomfortable Questions about the Death Star Attack

So now I’ve outed myself as a conspiracy nut and a geek.  Be who you are, I guess.

  1. Wow, we came from totally different angles and both ended up at Sadly, No! Heeheehee. But always out who you are on your blog. I did, and my traffic went to almost nothing, but I feel better about everything at least.

    Oh, it’s all a matter of perception. Me with a Rosary. Decent looking Catholic to you?

  2. Now you’re just teasing me!

  3. I would like to inquire about the title of this post, which is the tagline of the X-Files, while using a picture from Star Wars. Mixing metaphors, are we?

    Conspiricies are interesting things. There are ones that pretty much everyone knows that exist, i.e., big media is pro-Bush and believes that bashing Democrats is much more fun than actually digging around and finding out things, like real facts. And then there are the ones that are pretty iffy propositions, like the military is still covering up a UFO that crashed at Roswell back in the 40’s. Or was it the 50’s? I don’t remember. Anyway, I think people need to be a bit careful. I think there are people out there who believe in all sorts of conspiricies because it fills a certain need in their pysche. The NEED to believe the world is out to manipulate them, to deceive them, and they grasp at some pretty wild stuff to prove this. Others are obviously in need of some good investigative reporting to figure out.

    I have degrees in engineering and science, so I am pretty much of a “show me the data” type of person. Logic is one of the things that seperates us from the rest of the animal kingdom. That and opposable thumbs, that is.

    That’s what drives me absolutely insane about today’s society. We have all sorts of people making all sorts of unsubstatiated claims, some of the pretty outlandish, and a lot of people treat those claims as “the truth”, just because they appear in print or show up on the TV! Lex, I love the quote you have on your blog. That sums up my feelings pretty succinctly. No, science cannot tell us *everything* about the universe, but (if it is done correctly, which is sometimes very tricky) it certainly can go a long way toward it.

  4. The title was meant to be snarky. I can appreciate that my feelings toward 9/11 are irrational. So the title was meant to be a dig at the Truthers, when I am partially in their camp myself. I can laugh at myself just as easily as others.

    My suspicions about 9/11 are based the PNAC declaring the need for a new Pearl Harbor, and the coincidence that 9/11 forwarded every one of Big Dick’s 30 year-old dreams. And that my very first rational thought upon seeing the first tower collapse (live on TV) was that somehow the Bush administration would be very happy about the event, if not outright elated.

    I won’t argue about it. I just can’t shake the feeling that we’ve been had.

  5. I didn’t realize I was commenting on an older post. I didn’t even look at the date. I got here via a link.

    Oh, I wasn’t being critical. Just in the discussion mode, as I am taking a day off from work. Yes, coincidences abound, don’t they? I certainly won’t disagree on that aspect. I figure that the Bush/Cheney tag-team would have come up with some other way of selling a war against an Arabic speaking country if 9/11 hadn’t happened. I think I was like a lot of people back in 2001/2002, when BushCo started talking up the threat of Iraq. I was thinking to myself, what the hell are these guys talking about? The Gulf War was ages ago, and *everyone* knows that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. I certainly underestimated the gulliability and overestimated the intelligence of American society as a whole.

    God, these guys are such a bunch of immoral thugs. I can’t wait until they are out of office….
