Today marked the seventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. This one single event rocked our nation to the core. Many people died as we sat back and watched in horror. When it came to finding the explanation for such a tragedy, no answer given would be accepted as the absolute truth among all Americans, seeing as the answer wouldn't be as big as the event. This was to be expected as it has been that way for many years.
I had planned on listing and making general comments about a few common 9/11 conspiracies, but decided not to. The problem is if someone chooses to challenge a piece of information they are told and in the process list misinformation to support their argument it is likely others will follow by spreading that misinformation. After doing some research, I realized that would have done exactly that. I don't want to be apart of the problem.
However, I will say this. It's okay to question what you are told. That's normal. But there is such a thing as going too far. I was watching a show on the History channel the other day about this very subject. Conspiracy theorists were presenting their views and experts were giving reasons why they are wrong. I'm the type of person who wants to hear both sides before choosing which one to stand on. Some of the reasons these people were giving for their theories was absurd. But on occasion, that is usually the case.
The bottom line is use common sense. Things aren't always what they seem. And whether we like it or not, sometimes the answer we seek isn't going to be the one we like.
