- "All great truths begin as blasphemies."
-George Bernard Shaw
- The eventual collapse of a great lie
resembles the infamous collapse of an obscure 47-story building that few
ever saw. When a great fiction falls, formerly accepted as a great historical
fact, the collapse resembles a controlled demolition masquerading as a
- Great lies have the burden of truth pressing
upon them, constantly, incrementally, compounding weight like interest.
Truth crushes the lie slowly and then the resounding crash occurs suddenly.
Years later, students will laugh and wonder how anyone could ever be so
stupid as to believe a discredited lie.
- "All truth passes through three
stages," wrote Schopenhauer. "First, it is ridiculed. Second
it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
- The illogical collapse of three steel
skyscrapers is a historical fact, for now. The cause of the collapse has
been determined, in the judgment of university professors and structural
engineers, as caused by fire. An historical and scientific fact.
- The experts have spoken. The truth is
self-evident. But is it factual? Do scientific theories based on examining,
not the evidence because that has been destroyed, but videotapes, become
fact simply because experts say it is so?
- Imagine if you lived in 1903. Gathered
on a sand dune in North Carolina, an imaginary group of university professors,
structural engineers and government experts has deduced that man cannot
fly. Everyone concludes a human cannot fly, being heavier than air, while
every study concludes flight is impossible.
- Suddenly a tinny roar drowns out all
the learned proclamations! A sudden draft of wind knocks off a few hats
and scatters papers. With a look of terror, the group cowers in the sand,
as a huge shadow passes overhead like an enormous pterodactyl. A pair of
bicycle mechanics, tinkering in a garage, has just proven the "experts"
- "Controlled, powered flight had
seemed impossible until Orville Wright took off on the 17th December 1903.
The key to the Wright Brother's success was that their engineering had
gone beyond the trial and error methods of their contemporaries. Having
only very limited resources they showed great scientific ingenuity."
- Possessing only limited resources, 9-11
theorists like Hufschmid, Hoffman, Tarpley, Griffin and Jones have shown
great scientific ingenuity. The next wave will consist of engineers, mechanics,
chemists and architects who will go beyond trial and error methods and
dare to contradict the official but biased scientific data.
- Since no government expert or structural
engineer ever went beyond theoretical or computerized modeling, their learned
deductions carry no more weight than the average Internet blogger or high
school student who examined the same WTC videotapes the experts studied.
A budding Wright Brother would instead build a scale model and recreate
the exact sequence of events. I'm certain an engineering class will do
exactly that one day-unless the government, predictably, pressures that
school to close down the project altogether.
- "In questions of science, the authority
of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual,"
said Galileo. Enamored with specialists, America loves her authorities
and experts and disdains that "single individual" researcher.
- But experts are commonly wrong.
Researchers and investigators of the 9-11 Truth Movement, by painstaking
analysis (almost always without pay), prove them wrong incrementally. One
day in the future, students of physics and engineering will shake their
heads and titter in classrooms. How could those so-called experts in the
early 21st century have ever believed two fragile aluminum airplanes
could utterly destroy seven stout steel skyscrapers? That is the question
they will ask their professors.
- The common accusation leveled against
those of us highly skeptical of the government liturgy of the 9-11 attack,
is that we somehow "demean" the memory of the victims. Nothing
could be farther from the truth.
- The greatest homage to truth is to use
it, said Ralph Waldo Emerson. Only a fool accepts half-truths, pseudo-science,
government propaganda, media sound bites, factoids, planted evidence, faked
testimony and paid expertise as "Truth." We do not find
those truths to be self-evident, except of criminal complicity.
- Eric Hufschmid (Conspiracies and Underdogs)
asks how reinforced concrete can become pulverized into dust and explode
outward into what resembles a volcanic cloud? The government-sponsored
scientists and engineering experts ignored this question. Gravity alone
cannot account for the energy required to convert falling concrete slabs
into dust particles. Nor can gravity alone account for the great distances
of ejected aluminum and steel, not to mention the inexplicable collapse
- Pseudo-science conjures a rational for
three collapses that appears laughable, wholly un-scientific given the
laws of physics and the laws of probability. Given the eventual circumstances
of thousands of deaths, through the resulting wars of conquest, the WTC
conclusion is diabolical on closer inspection. The scientists who lent
credence to this ignorant conclusion (terrorism + fire = collapse) will
one day be deservedly mocked (MIT - Morons In Training).
- A half truth in such circumstances is
a huge miscarriage of justice, a monstrous crime. The Christian philosopher,
Augustine, remarked: "He who conceals a useful truth is equally
guilty with the propagator of an injurious falsehood." And if thousands
were killed and injured (Iraq and Afghanistan) following the pseudo-scientific
conclusions, how much greater is that crime?
- If my country cannot survive facing the
facts of a brilliant yet diabolical crime at the WTC, it stands on shaky
ground indeed. If science cannot speak honestly in the face of government
pressure, about the simplest scientific laws, but sells itself for money
instead, as "expertise," it is a great whore.
- Governments conspire; that is what they
- They conspire pragmatically, which they
call the greater good, but more often than not they conspire criminally,
for the interest of a few. As Balzac might have surmised, 9-11 was
a great crime, pure greed disguised as a crazed act by religious fanatics
(which was never proven). "Behind every great fortune there is a crime,"
Balzac wrote. And the greater the crime the greater the fortune to be made
(billions in the case of 9-11), and the greater the master criminals involved.
- "All truths are easy to understand
once they are discovered; the point is to discover them," said Galileo.
But the mass of dullards accept the dictates of a few clever deceivers
(liars), requiring not simply discovery but overcoming their own inertia
and the deception of their leaders.
- I predict, one day, greed will be the
ultimate undoing of the 9-11 conspirators. Greed and duplicity, as lies
constrict and strangle the liars who told them. We are only in the late
First Stage of Truth; do not lose hope.
- Footnote; The Texas City Scenario did
not occur on Easter Day, thanks be to God and overwhelming scrutiny of
these operators. The chief method to counteract villainy is to let them
know THEY too are being watched as they watch us. If there is to be another WTC
or OKC bombing, we need to observe and note EVERY suspicious detail BEFORE
the fact. Prevention is 90% of cure. DH
