Mind-Numbing Numbers

Grade-One Gadfly returns with a look at the numerology theories presented by the dopes over at the Loose Change forum.

Um, but wait. Actually, if you flip the date upside down, you get 90/11/01. No, no, no, they reply; you drop the zero before the single digit year (i.e. 10/11/6). Oh, OK. But, if that is the case, why don’t we drop the extra zero in the 9/11 date, too (i.e. 9/11/1). Well, then it won’t match up with the “10” representing October in the date of the crash. But . . .


I've often thought that numerology is the nuttiest stuff out there, and Grade-One Gadfly clearly agrees.

I would say more but my mind is numb.

So when's the next attack?

If there really are numerological patterns in dates, it ought to be easy to predict future attacks, and limit the list of places where they could happen. The digits of my address don't add up to 9/11 in any way, so I'm safe, right?

So get cracking, numerologists. Make yourselves useful for once. Publish a list of when and where, or at least when not and where not.

Ah ok...so we randomly drop whatever number that doesn't allow the theory to work...so that 90/11/01 turns into 9/11/01.

Must be nice to be able to make up your own rules as you go along.

Holy shit! These people will cling to any little thing that they possibly can to keep the followers of their stupid conspiracy hanging on. There are morons over on the forum who believe in the $20 bill theory. It's sad that some people are so pathetic. But at the same time it's completely hilarious. They are so retarded.

you guys must be glad that all those head-in-the-sand Fox News Republicans linked to your blog, leading to your beloved high google status and consequent high traffic on your blog. how convenient for you Deniers. it's also oddly convenient how, whenever I post a comment, the entire thread dissappears and there's a flood of new threads. well, that's not necessarily intentional, but it sure is convenient for your strategy of focusing on Loose Change and people like Alex Jones, while completely ignoring the mountain of actual evidence, along with a prominent British MP and the former German Secretary of Defence, and many of the victims' relatives, who were given lies, half-truths, or no answers at all.

a collection of good 9/11 documentaries is at http://belowgroundsurface.org

"Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" is very good, documenting all the repressed investigations before the attacks, as well as the ignored warnings.

"Improbable Collapse," about the WTC collapses, is also good (you have to be patient in the first 10 minutes, b/c that's just introduction). interesting that the news corporations have a rule that news hosts have to get permission all the way from the top to show WTC 7's collapse. only one program has shown its collapse since 9/11.

"911 Mysteries" and "Press for Truth" cover a good bit as well

I would ignore Loose Change. that one has a lot of bunk, as Pat and James love to point out :)
