yeah, I know, I looked into some stuff afterwards however and some of it did seem very true. I know people manipulate things to help themselves or for sadism or whatever but this one seemed different from other’s I’ve seen. There were some interesting points on it, such as the fact that even though there was no large plane wreckage to be seen because the heat vapourised it, one little passport was found that survived the heat? And about a week before the attack on the pentagon, there were white markings on the grass almost exactly where the plane was supposed to have hit.
hmm, I know I don’t know everything, and I’m not screaming conspiracy theory, but there are a couple of points I’m doubting.
That’s exactly how a lot of these theories survive and thrive, Thunder. They present a lot of false information (such as the claim about an absence of aircraft wreckage) or present information in such a manner as to make it look suspicious (such as making a fuss about the passport that was found, even though other personal papers from the passengers were found intact as well), and they give you this information in a persuasive way and hope that you don’t actually do any checking of the facts yourself. Then they also make certain that they make their theories easily and abundantly and repeatedly available, so that much of the information that anybody who does do research finds is the information provided by the conspiracy theorists, and the sheer volume of it all tends to lend weight to their arguments.
You’ll also often find that with conspiracy theorists, there will usually be only a small number of really vocal ones who start their own websites or make videos or whatever. But these people will constantly cite each other and refer to each others’ work, creating sort of a looping network of references that makes them look more legitimate and more supported.
Then there’s the form of logic that they commonly use, where if any single part of something isn’t answered completely by the official story, then that means that the entire official story is false and that the conspiracy must therefore be true.
Yes, there are conspiracies, and there are quite a few conspiracy theories that do contain at least a bit of truth in them. But a lot of them are also complete nonsense.
