How Morons Work

I pointed last year to the idiotic website, How Stuff Works, which included a section on "How Conspiracy Theories Work" which didn't just stay agnostic on the 9-11 crackpots, but claimed they had a lot of solid information. The owner of that site, the misnamed Marshall Brain decided to dip his toes back into the swamp with a look at the No-Planers:

I have a friend who sent me links to a series of 9/11 conspiracy theory videos called “September Clues”. The gist of September Clues seems to be, “we can find evidence that 9/11 was an ‘inside job’ by looking at the news coverage of events on that day.” If you enjoy conspiracy theories, it’s an interesting angle.

What's next? "How Creationism Works"? If there are any teachers out there, you might want to talk to your school administrator and get this disinformation site blocked.
