Yeah, agreed. Many of these "investigations" are as shoddy as a CBS/NBC/ABC piece on the US government, but it doesn't have to be a reason to shut down anything that is out of the ordinary (and I don't think you do, personally...). Much of the widely disseminated 'alternative information' is crap, straight up. I agree that the pyramids were simply an amazing feat of engineering, like your channel tunnel, or the hoover dam (seriously). On the other hand, I can't dismiss, for example, the crop circles, out of hand, as always man-made. Perhaps some are, but I would think with drones, satellites, night vision, Google Earth, and all the other views, of the areas in Great Britain, where they appear, someone would have been able to clearly debunk them, by now. And they haven't. Doesn't make me a TB in any sense, but does sort of force me to keep an open mind.
Regarding 9-11, I think it happened, just the way it was reported; some very bright, but insane, fanatics, were able to exploit weaknesses in the system, to cause a huge tragedy, which those in power pounced on, as an opportunity to win geo-political influence, gain territory, make money, and satisfy constituents. I've studied the engineering reports, and it is very possible for the floors of the WTC I and II to pancake, as they did, beginning with just one - The new (at the time) 1960's design ethic, for more interior space, with fewer interior columns, meant that the supporting outside framework quickly hit its weight limit, as successive floors collapsed on top of each other. After three or four concrete floors were stacked up, the momentum was unstoppable, all the way down. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> wrote : Well Bhairitu, I've started perusing the videos on the remote viewing site and it's hard to convey how unimpressive it is. The Pyramid one for instance starts with a lecture about not waiting for authority to disclose things but finding them out for yourself. And then asks you to take his word for it! The following babble is unbelievably clueless, talk of using sound to hover blocks of stone, battling alien races (where did they go and why did they leave no trace?) and worldwide slave labour! All to solve what isn't really a mystery - the pyramids weren't built with slaves and the stone was quarried nearby in the usual fashion with bronze axes and chisels, loads of which are lying around still. Pervading it all is this same elite smugness that I see with the 9/11 "truthers". That only they know the truth and you are stupid sheeple for believing the "authorities" version of what happened. They never finish the sentence by saying we should follow their authority instead. And a highly unorthodox and impossible to verify one at that. I always found it insulting to our ancestors that we can't credit them with enough wherewithal to build a few huge monuments, I know it's a backhanded compliment but it does us no credit to assume that just because we couldn't get organisation like that together there's no way they could have, we didn't have the sort of devotional society they had. They may not even have had minds that worked in the same way as us. Whatever the RV'ers daydream, the pyramids were built by humans. Don't let other people do your thinking for you, Brown's claim that the smart people in the military don't abandon things that don't work is correct, which is why they stopped research with these guys in the first place, and that was just for stuff they were looking for in Afghanistan, these guys are talking about things that happened decades or millennia ago and just taking the visions as fact! His smugness and conviction might distract some from the fact there is no corroborating evidence but that's the first thing I look for when faced with a revolutionary idea. So I'll wait till someone digs up some of the aliens that allegedly helped or anything that shows that people couldn't have done it unaided but we already know they did! I remain unconvinced.
