Official Government Conspiracy Theorist GuideSubmitted by JKap on Thu, 01/08/2009 - 20:32
Just a brief primer for those wishing to defend the government's official 9/11 conspiracy theory that holds that 19 Arab Muslims with boxcutters "collapsed" three (3) steel-framed high rises with two (2) aircraft and penetrated the defenses of the U.S. Military Command Center (Pentagon) with another alleged aircraft.
1. Never admit that there was a conspiracy to commit murder on 11 September 2001 (perhaps I am off on this one since some official government conspiracy theorists could possibly believe the irrational theory that one person acting alone carried out the attacks).
2. Defend the government's official religious 9/11 Myth at any cost!
3. Do not hold the government's official 9/11 conspiracy theory to any standard of—
b.) empirical evidence
c.) historical precedent
d.) factual basis in reality
4. Distract, distort, deny, lie, conceal, omit, ignore, self-contradict, obfuscate, mislead.
5. Label anyone who questions the government's official religious 9/11 Myth with any of a veritable buffet of pejoratives, especially "conspiracy theorist".
a.) Repeat Step 5 as liberally and as often as possible.
6. Choose a style—
a.) ad hominem argument
b.) straw-man argument
c.) red herring
d.) a priori reasoning
"It is curious how we delude ourselves, fancying that the body can be improved, but that it is impossible to evoke the hidden powers of the soul. I am engaged in trying to show that if I have any of those powers, I am as frail a mortal as any of us and that I never had anything extraordinary about me nor have I now. I am a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have enough humility to confess my errors and to retrace my steps. I own that I have an immovable faith in God and His goodness, and an unconsumable passion for truth and love. But is that not what every person has latent in him? If we are to make progress, we must not repeat history but make new history. We must add to the inheritance left by our ancestors. If we may make new discoveries and inventions in the phenomenal world, must we declare our bankruptcy in the spiritual domain? Is it impossible to
multiply the exceptions so as to make them the rule? Must man always be brute first and man after, if at all?" -Mahatma Gandhi
