there are some problems with the conspiracy theories. so let me take a step by step approach to this. 1. as far as the 9/11 attacks are concerned i think most people agree the twin towers were hit by airplanes. is there anybody that wishes to argue this point? 2. assuming we got past step one i think we can all agree the towers collapsed. now here is where the conspiracy people lose me. there already were planes flown into the buildings. there were fires burning. people were dying. lots of people. there were around 3000 people dead by the end of the day. a few hundred were police and firemen (i think its a little over 400 but exact numbers arent important for this discussion right now). so we have about 2500 civilians getting killed because they are trapped by fires in a burning skyscraper. everybody with me so far? ok, maybe even a few hundred people were still making their way down the steps. still we are talking a very large amount of casualties, right? 3. so we already have severe damage to a building, people dying by the thousands, etc. so why blow up the buildings with explosives? where is the logic in that? its already a horrific tragedy. what logical purpose could sending people with explosives into a burning building serve? at this point the building probably needs to come down anyway and thousands are going to die anyway. where is the logic to risk getting caught sending in explosives? why not just wait and take down the building later? 4. now you already have people outraged over an incident in new york with people dying. why would you go and do something stupid like firing a missile at the pentagon or some other "it wasnt a 757" conspiracy? 5. ok, so i kinda get that flight 93 passengers may have been made into heroes. its nice to have some heroes out of the horrible day. i've seen claims of it being taken down by a missile and all that stuff. i'm not convinced and i dont think it happened but i am open minded about it. so what about these claims that it didnt crash in pennsylvania? what purpose does faking a crash serve? if a plane didnt crash in pennsylvania then where is it? what about the DNA of the victims and the hijackers found there?
