The fact that thousands of people died in the Twin Towers that day is extremely sad.
The fact that some people still think it was an inside job is extremely pathetic.
From Reverend Sun Myung Moon’s own Washington Times:
A former Bush team member during his first administration is now voicing serious doubts about the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9-11. Former chief economist for the Department of Labor during President George W. Bush’s first term Morgan Reynolds comments that the official story about the collapse of the WTC is “bogus” and that it is more likely that a controlled demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and adjacent Building No. 7. Reynolds, who also served as director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis in Dallas and is now professor emeritus at Texas A&M University said, “If demolition destroyed three steel skyscrapers at the World Trade Center on 9/11, then the case for an ‘inside job’ and a government attack on America would be compelling.”
And after the interview, Reynolds promptly put on his foil hat and did the NumaNuma Dance to drown out all those “loud voices.”
Come on people. I’ve heard the conspiracy theories surrounding this and I just have to say that it doesn’t make any sense. Can you imagine anybody being able to keep that secret? I mean, can you even imagine?
Of course, that isn’t a good enough explanation for it to not exist, but Occam’s Razor people!
In its simplest form, Occam’s Razor states that one should make no more assumptions than needed. When multiple explanations are available for a phenomenon, the simplest version is preferred. A charred tree on the ground could be caused by a landing alien ship or a lightning strike. According to Occam’s Razor, the lightning strike is the preferred explanation as it requires the fewest assumptions.
So to Morgan Reynolds, and all the other conspiracy theorists out there, let’s just take a deep breath and repeat after me, “The Illuminati doesn’t exist. The Illuminati doesn’t exist…”
