For the sake of argument, what If I said the   Zionist Illuminati

Then for the sake of argument I would say you are either parroting brandon and don't know what you're talking about, or are a raging anti-semite who thinks it couldn't have been Muslim terrorists that attacked the US, it had to be THE JEWS!!


But I'm not interested in the sake of argument.  I want to know if you really think there is some person or persons who trump the President, or if this is all a hypothetical.

Of course there is! Haven't you been reading XKCD?

I've retracted my statements,  what I was saying was for the sake of argument,  I have no way to prove anything I said to be correct, but at the same time you have no way to prove anything I have said to not be correct.  Nobody knows the truth for sure and there really isn't any way to prove anything one way or the other

Clayface, no offense, but that seems like a fair bit of mental posturing just to protect from any challenges against an opinion you might have.
Deductive logical reasoning does not mean starting from a hypothesis and then challenging people to disprove it, it means having that hypothesis and then backing it up.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

First of all, deleting posts in a discussion is always a jerk move.

And you're right, if I cannot trust government, media, and eye witness accounts, as you seem to suggest, then it is hard to say what did and didn't happen.  And if we cannot trust any similar records from the time, you couldn't prove to me that President Kennedy wasn't shot, but was instead turned into a glazed donut by a wizard.

There's reason that I'm pressing you on the issue, that I'm not interested in leaving it as a possibility to consider.  This isn't just some thought experiment, like wondering if other people see the world in different colors or something.  The idea of 9/11 being an inside job has serious, serious consequences.  I'm talking armed revolution consequences.

Analogy time, everyone loves analogies.  Say you have a neighbor, whose son is killed in broad daylight in a drive by shooting.  The alledged shooter is identified, and a huge crackdown is launched against his gang.  Meanwhile, you have a suspicion that the gang wasn't really involved, and your neighbor set the whole thing up himself.  This isn't an issue you should just leave alone, you might be living next to a murderer.  You have an obligation to get your facts straight.  If there is any evidence, you better do something to act on it, so the person who killed his own son is brought to justice.  If you don't have any evidence or don't bother to really look into it, then you should really quit telling everyone else in the neighborhood that your neighbor probably killed his own son, that they should at least consider it as a possibility.  It makes your look either paranoid or stupid, and irritates the neighbors.

I know you've already backed down, but I'm saying this for Detox, too.  Have some freaking credible evidence and know what you're talking about, or shut the hell up about possibilities and having an open mind.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Quite honestly, freedom of speech has just become an excuse for people to be stupid or get other people mad without serious consequences. I think we are pretty well and far removed from an age where you can get burned at the stake for calling the president a poo poo head.

The point is, freedom of speech still doesn't hide the fact about how baseless your argument is.

Of course, there are always clues left for those with an open mind to find.  You just have to be willing to look, man.  Who do you think the wizard worked for?
