Da Twoof is Faith-Based.

I just came across a good summary of the main Twoofer "scientists", by Edmund Standing.

I particularly liked his conclusion:

"In reality, there is no more evidence for the claim that 9/11 was an 'inside job' than there is that God created the world in six days, that the Holocaust never happened, that Jesus walked in America, or that an angel dictated the Qur'an to Muhammad. These are faith based positions, and to attempt to claim there are credible 'scientific' reasons for embracing conspiracies about the September 11th attacks is an insult both to real science and to the memory of those who died on that day."

Twoofers, like Creationists, use myths to explain myths. Creationists have their God of the Gaps; Twoofers have the mythical New World Order to explain the holes in their arguments. For example, the mythical therm*te was planted by the NWO without anyone coming forward about it - "the witnesses were paid off by the NWO".

Other examples that are rife in the Twoof Movement: the NWO secretly must have "vanished" the AA77 plane passengers because "no plane hit the Pentagon"; the NWO removed AA77's parts from the Pentagon, somehow without anyone noticing. (Yet how can the NWO remove parts of a plane that, according to twoofers, didn't hit the Pentagon? Maybe the NWO can explain that, too. ;-) )

Contradictions upon myths upon myths upon delusions.
