Anyone here not seen Loose Change?Submitted by Michael Nystrom on Tue, 03/04/2014 - 03:03
Loose Change is on Netflix, I noticed the other night.
Is anyone's mind on the subject of 911 not made up? Anyone up to watching it?

I always like to ask people what they think happened on 911. It is interesting to hear answers. It is part of a screening mechanism, indeed.
Some people simply can't have their belief challenged on that issue -- believers on both sides of the issue.
The truth is we truly don't know what happened that day. There are a lot of conflicting stories. And people come to those stories with all their own biases and interpretations and world views of life. Everything gets run through the filter of life, and ultimately what is extruded is a belief. A belief about what happened. Even though there is no way to know the whole story: Who was controlling those planes and how? How did that whole operation go down?
And yet, most of us have beliefs. What are beliefs? Where do they come from? Why do they form? Why do people react so violently when they are challenged?
Beliefs are what make us humans, and not rocks.
Here's a little taster. Watch the first 2 minutes and see if you're not drawn in.
It is an AWESOME opening shot, with the picture of Manhattan with the two towers still standing. Shot with the Statue of Liberty.
That Manhattan is gone. We live in a different world.
Man those buildings were tall. Almost twice as tall as anything else out there. Like the Taipei skyline today, dominated by the Taipei 101.
I never saw the twin towers in person. I only got to New York after the fact.
