Scientists Prove Sanity Isn't Required for PhD

If anyone still has faith in the scientific community about issues such as global warming climate change and other numerous topics, never fear -- they're anxious to prove you wrong for trusting them! (all emphasis mine)

The 9/11 terrorist attack on America which left almost 3,000 people dead was an "inside job", according to a group of leading academics.

Around 75 top professors and leading scientists believe the attacks were puppeteered by war mongers in the White House to justify the invasion and the occupation of oil-rich Arab countries.

What makes them top professors or leading scientists? I'll tell you -- the opinion of the article. It wouldn't be worth reading at all if they told you that the majority of these folks are lecturers, i.e. not smart enough to do their own research, but (supposedly) competent enough to present others' and assistant professors. The best part comes later, though, when they really come out with it. "We're scientists, man! Don't you know that makes us inherently smarter better than you?"

Prof Jones said: "We don't believe that 19 hijackers and a few others in a cave in Afghanistan pulled this off acting alone.


Professor James Fetzer, 65, a retired philosopher of science (what the heck does that mean?? -ed) at the University of Minnesota, said: "The evidence is so overwhelming, but most Americans don't have time to take a look at this."

The 9/11 Commission dismissed the numerous conspiracy theories after its exhaustive investigation into the terror attacks.

Just goes to show you, it doesn't take much besides tenacity to get a PhD. But really, they know better. Who are you to question science?

You have a tenacity for calling people who take opposing positions to your own, "INSANE". I don't think these guys are insane, and I don't think they're credible just because they call themselves "scientists". However, there are some strange things about that day that just don't fit. Don't get me wrong, I'm not diving off the deep end, but I do enjoy a good conspiracy theory. There is some compelling evidence to suggest that terrorists may have been "assisted" somehow by someone or some people on the inside, but these are easily debunked. Misguided is probably a better word to use.

Go to and type in loose change... interesting flick although not completely "fact-based". There are some interesting tidbits in there that may make you think.

Paranoia is a form of dementia.

I talked about loose change a few days ago here. I, of course, defer to Maddox on this one.

I know everything in that movie is bullshit. I just mentioned it because it has some interesting things in it. Paranoia is not a form of dementia, and it's not a form of insanity. Have some respect for people... just because someone doesn't trust their government doesn't mean they automatically have some form of "dementia". They are misguided into thinking that because of legitmate reasons. Terrorists become terrorists because they're misguided through legitimate reasons. They aren't "insane", even your buddy Bush said so just a few days ago. You attack people for not seeing the complexity of situations, yet you just assume people are "insane" or have some kind of mental disability simply because they have a radical viewpoint. GET OVER YOURSELF.

The insanity comment was facetious.

In order to ascribe to these beliefs, these folks are either:
1.) Rabidly biased, and thus knowingly deceiving others
2.) Rabidly biased, and thus willing to be deceived
3.) Unfortunately stupid, paranoid, or lacking in mental capacity in some other way such that they are manipulated by other small-minded and /or iniquitous cohorts.
