    silly conspiracy theories

    I was voting over at Wikipedia articles for deletion as I often do, when I came across a movie called "911 in Plane Site"

    There's been alot of conteversies over the years with our government, but I think this tops it off. After some research and remembrance to the event, I am convinced of these two things

    1) The plane that hit the towers was most likely a cargo plane
    2) The pentagon incident was a missile

    Am I off my rocker?

    And no, I am not one of those people that denies the apollo space mission, although maybe I should??

    C'mon man, everyone knows the moon landing was fake.

    but the flight numbers were reported during the attacks - do you think they just made them up? also, the directors theories seemed more circumstantial than conclusive to me. what exactly in his argument won you over?

    the JFK assassination was one of the most remarkable cover-ups ever. reams of hard evidence pointing to a conspiracy and all we end up with is a lone gunman!
    Code:
    if( numeric_limits< byte >::digits != bits_per_byte )
        error( "program requires bits_per_byte-bit bytes" );
    24bbs.cpp

    Hah, I really enjoyed that... very cute.

    ...and while watching that video, I'm getting confused about certain things... the test aircraft by NASA in '82 is said to have had 10 takesoffs and 13 landings... anything seem odd about that to you all? Anyway, as for the real video context. It's pretty interesting and they had some good quotes, but some of the key points he made weren't quoted. To say it was caused by the government is quite a long shot, I'd say, but I wouldn't doubt there was more to it that they're keeping under wraps for security reasons.

    The video was interesting but some of it was quite far-fetched. There is not enough evidence to support many of his claims.

    It was an interesting video but that's about it. I'm not a conspiracy theorist and while I realize there is more to the story and others like it, there will never be a conclusion reached. It happened and I feel horrible about the lives lost, however grasping for straws in the attempt to understand or deal with the issue does not help anyone.

    Heh... personally I think the title of this thread cries conspiracy theory.

    Sept 11 never happened, and according to ahmadinejahd neither did the Jewish holocaust.


    >>Am I off my rocker?

    Yeah, I have a cousin that saw the airliner hit the pentagon
    EDIT: although now that I think about it, that particular cousin is a black adopted cousin...he surely can't be trusted.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    what about the thousands of people in manhattan that saw passenger jets hit the buildings... or were they weather balloons? or maybe the government has super projection technology that can make a transport plane look and sound like a passenger jet...

    do you honestly think the holes in those buildings were made by cargo planes? I really think a cargo plane would have made a more roundish hole and would probably have gone further through the building, seeing as they're usually heavier and all...
