Only 45% felt that the 9/11 commissions findings were not a cover-up. It means that someone who's opinions are are supported by almost half the population doesn't deserve to be called a lunatic. I'm not saying he's right, but that his opinions do deserve respect. > > An opinion about a proposition, particularly by people not well versed > in the evidence, doesn't make the proposition more likely.

Did you hear his reasoning and evidence? The fact that he is part of a growing movement of people that includes almost half of the public by definition means that he is not on the fringe and lessens the likelyhood that he is a lunatic. > > > Steven Jones professor of physics at Brigham Young U. has done > extensive studies of the > > destruction of the towers an makes an extremely convincing case for > a precision > > demolition. > >Especially for tower seven which wasn't even hit by and airplane.

If it can be shown that the three towers were brough down by pre-postioned charges, It doesn't necessarily mean that the government was involved. I does make it highly unlikely that it was the result of a terrorist cell. There are only a handful of companies in the world that have the expertise to bring down down the three towers with the precision that they came down. Most people don't even know that a third tower collapsed. It doesn't get much attention because it didn't get hit by an airplane. All the more reason to suspect that the collapses were'nt cause by the plane impacts and subsequent fires. It would require a substancial committment of time to read the paper at the URL above. But if knowing the truth about what has happened is at all important to anyone they should make the time. It is not a conspiracy theory but a well reasoned challenge to the commission report. > How many in his or related > professions agree that his evidence is conclusive, or even credible? There is now an organization of scientists and engineers who question the commonly accepted story. They are professional who have a lot so loose by taking this view, so they don't do it lightly. There are also a number of high government officals who question this commonly accepted story, including former members of the Bush administration. If people prefer to accept the commission findings that's fine. It's their right. But if they want to look at the evidence with an open mind, that is also a persons right. The people who present that evidence should not be called lunatics and be removed from his job. Perhaps I am motivated to defend him, because I lost my job and career because I expressed some perfectly reasonable views at MUM. They just didn't happen to be views consistent with the commonly accepted paradigm there. Michael ------------------------ Yahoo!
