Look closer. Think harder. Choose the sound argument over the clever one.

Debunking 9/11 Myths

Hats off to Popular Mechanics editors David Dunbar and Brad Reagan, authors of the new book, Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can’t Stand Up to the Facts.

The book comes out of the work they did back in 2005 (see here).

Glenn and Helen interview the authors at PoliticsCentral (caution: 33 minutes long). Listen for some of the same themes I touch on in my Conspiracy Theories post:

I think that extends to contradictory views of the military and government as well. On the one hand it's hyper-efficient ... coordinating this massive conspiracy ... and on the other hand they're bumblers ... why couldn't they scramble jets...

"...What you find is that these theories build on themselves..." [I.e., creating their own body of self-referencing faux-evidence.]

Debunking conspiracy theories is a lot less glamorous and sensational than promoting them, but sometimes the truth is that way.

Visit the book's blog.

Be sure to check out the book “Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory” due out in March by Dr. David Ray Griffin.
