45. Suit yourself, I'm easy.
You've said you based facts in your OP on a book and your OP was full of various weblinks so I thought you liked to read and do your own research.

"... if you're going to tell me publicly that I have all my facts wrong ..."

That's a fabrication. I never said you had all of your facts wrong.
I'm doubting your sincerity.

"all you're doing is telling me that there is information out there that contradicts what I'm saying"

Not so, that would be a meaningless statement. I provided a link which I know for a fact addresses many of the most troubling issues in your OP. I hoped that you would check it out for yourself with a critical mind. It's not like your OP was a concise argument that was friendly to discussion to begin with, ya know? It covered a hell of a lot of territory.

From the first page that will greet you when you have the time :eyes: to follow the link:

"The web is full of sites covering various conspiracy theories. Many seem well-researched, and appear to have plenty of detailed documentation to prove their claims. But are they really true?

We dont know, but one good way to start is by checking a few claims for yourself. We tried that with a number of 9/11 sites, with surprising results. Many of the facts we read were distorted, or simply wrong. Quotes were routinely taken out of context. Relevant information was often ignored. And much of this could be discovered with a minimum of online research.

Whatever you believe about 9/11, the spreading of false claims helps no-one, and wed like to play a small part in revealing some of them. Were not about debunking entire conspiracies, then, but will use this site to zoom in on what we think are the more dubious stories, revealing the misquotes, the distortions, the inaccuracies that are so common online.

But does this make us an authority? No. If weve an overall message here, its check things for yourself. Dont trust a site just because its telling you what you want to believe. Dont believe us without evaluating our arguments and checking the references we provide, either (were as likely to make mistakes as anyone else). Look into the claims yourself, discover both sides of the argument, and make your own mind up. The truth deserves nothing less."
