Comment: Well you make a good point.

Well you make a good point.

Well you make a good point. We can never see all of the evidence. The best we can do is to try to show inconsistencies and poke holes in the official account. In other words, the best we can do is disprove the official version. It is nearly impossible, depending on available evidence, to piece together a "positive" theory of what occurred.

For example, the official account of 9/11 is full of holes and inconsistencies. Yet despite all the years of research, it is very difficult to propose a "positive"(i.e what actually happened) theory to counter the official story. Some have attempted and I have read some pretty compelling theories, but alas I have yet to see any proof.

What does that mean to us? I think we should be careful about suggesting WHAT happened and stick to, until new information becomes available, questioning and thoughtfully considering problems with the version of events that is presented to us.

"My theories explain, but cannot slow the decline of a great civilization. I set out to be a reformer, but only became the historian of decline."
