Terrific Blog Post on Loose Change
Found this one in our referring logs and liked what Brian had to say.
It's to the point where the "smart" young turks of the urban centers have taught themselves to throw logic and reason out the window, much obeisance though they might make to such words when it comes to mocking religious people, when the subject is politics in general and 9/11 in particular. It's not about coming up with a theory and testing it with evidence. It's about ferreting out little inconsistencies and weirdnesses and dissenting opinions on observed phenomena, obsessing over isolated contextless details as a smokescreen against having to consider what if any significance those details have as part of any cohesive alternative theory of what happened, throwing them all together into a big mishmash with a "Gee, look at all the stuff that don't add up", and then elbowing each other in the ribs and arching their eyebrows and saying that all this obviously means that it was all a huge fraud.
Excellent post, read it all.
