Need to razor 9/11 conspiracies

Wow... I keep running into all sorts of comments on blogs or facebook - from those who STILL convinced 9/11/2001 was a huge government conspiracy -> they think those towers could never have fallen on there own, witnesses 'definitely' heard explosions so there 'must' have been bombs in the buildings, Bush was in league with Al-Qaida and on and on...


Alex Jones over at is all into this. Gee whiz...

Time for "9/11 truthers" to really step back, put down the conspiracy koolaid and study Ockham's Razor: the simpler theory is more likely to be true.

For those who still doubt: couple related links to start researching 9/11/2001.

* It was a coordinated attack; an event planned for years.
* Bush was only in office 8 months so no, Bush did not plan it.
* There is evidence a plan like this was discussed since 1981.
* This was a terrorist attack by Islam extremists.
* These men were associated with Osama Bin Laden & Al-Qaida.

There is probably no logic or truth to help staunch 9/11 truthers; they really just need to put down the Alex Jones koolaid now and go do something productive instead...

"Until proved otherwise, the more complex theory competing with a simpler explanation should be put on the back burner..."
