... Primarily, conspiracy theories.
I know the ten-year anniversary is almost upon us and this is still sensitive, but - before you flame me - just read on!
There has just been a documentary on TV here in the UK regarding conspiracy theories on 9/11. I watched it because I'm interested in the idea of conspiracy theories - and the other side of an argument in general - and because I have an open mind. I was quite prepared to have my mind blown by damning evidence should it be presented to me.
I have to say, though, it was the biggest pile of flaky, circumstantial, dodgy and half-cocked bullshit. There were more holes in the conspiracy theories than in the official reports and they ignored many things completely.
By the end, I was just raging at their blind ignorance, their repeated bottom line of "Yeah, it was all for the oil" and their alarming dismissal of all the lives lost.
At the end of the day, does it really even matter? Why is it so difficult to just accept this as an atrocity and move on? People died, regardless.
I have to stand by my own morals, though, so... I maintain my belief in "each to their own" and the right to free speech.
Anyway... As I must make a discussion of this for it to be allowed, what kind of theories have you heard?
