Wait, I see his strategy now! He's not just some rando on the internet, he's cleverly diluted himself several times to make a cure for the Global Power Structure far more potent than anything produced by Big Pharma, especially psychiatric help.

Come on Yankee, put your shoulder into it!

Oh, he's around all right. He's just hiding from the hard questions.

Oh, one more question: on your website, you say that people on this forum are lying.
Can you quote the posts you believe, or even better, have proven, to be lies? Again, it seems a little Sir-Robinny to run away and then make accusations like that from a safe distance.

The only other option is that yankee451 is wrong. That is an inconceivable thought.

At least he seems to object to getting involved in a land war in Asia.

You cling to videos and alleged witness accounts while disregarding the physical evidence which proves they're false. If you think you can prove the jets were real, then now's your chance to use the same evidence we all have access to, to prove it.
https://www.logicalfallacies.org/

For propositions that can be empirically tested and repeatable (Universal, or General propositions) use the Scientific Method.
Scientific Method : The method of soundly testing a hypothesis by measurable empirical experiment and validated or refuted. If validated then the proposition becomes a (General) theory.

e.g. Gravity bends light; vaccines provide active acquired immunity to a particular disease – True; The Michelson-Morley experiment proved that there is a medium (ether) surrounding all things; N-rays exist - False

For propositions about the past that cannot be empirically tested and repeatable (Singular propositions) use Hume’s Method.
Hume’s Method: A proposition that is tested by measuring in quantity and quality the evidence known and validated or refuted by the proportion of the evidence. If probably validated then the proposition becomes a Singular truth.
Types of Evidence:
Documentary Evidence: any proof that can be presented in writing or any number of media upon which such documentation can be recorded and stored (photographs, recordings, films, printed emails, etc.).

Physical Evidence: any proof in the form of a physical object, whether whole or in part.

Prima Facie Evidence: evidence sufficient to establish a claim until rebutted by contrary evidence.

Scientific Evidence: Evidence scientific in nature.

Testimony Evidence: spoken or written evidence given by a witness.
Application of Hume’s Method:
e.g. Hitler invaded Russia; NASA landed on the moon in 1969; JFK was killed by Lee Oswald alone –True; planes did not hit the Twin Towers, missiles did. -False
And mutatis mutandis – WTC7 collapsed due to demolition, not fire; a plane did not hit the Pentagon; no one was killed at Sandy Hook, –All False

Why do you make up lies about 9/11? The missiles did it, is one of the dumbest claims in 9/11 truth. And you never will have evidence.

Couldn't care less what sick mind thinks such things.

Encountering insanity tends to have that effect on people.

Yes, they can. It saves them from visiting your site full of nuttiness.

Your questions (most of which were irrelevant and didn't address the physical evidence about which this thread is based) have been answered ad nausea. Scroll back.

There are very few questions on the previous page. Most of the comments are not questions, but nonsense. Every question I see has been answered.

Oh, I don't know. Maybe they could set up their own website, and then go on skeptics' forums? No, that's too crazy. No-one would think of doing that. :rolleyes:


Which nations do you claim are 'owned' by this group?



Been asked before, but where are these resources? Where are these armies and navies based?


Not quiet enough, apparently, as you seem to know all about them.
How do you know what you claim you know? Where did you get this information?



The 'sheeple factor' is an invention of conspiracy theorists. No such thing actually exists. Plenty of people have spoken out against oppressive regimes, and this is still going on today. Tibet, Iran and Hong Kong are some obvious examples.
That said, perhaps they are scared. Have you contacted any of them?



Apart from you, that is. And all the other truthers, whose theories you may reject, but who are still speaking out. How strange. It's almost as if that's yet another unfounded assertion.
Oh, wait- it is.



Please quote a qualified expert in this CGI technology, saying that what you are claiming was at least technically possible in 2001. Otherwise, this is yet another unsupported assertion.




Well, it seems that unqualified amateurs like you can differentiate missile damage from plane damage, so perhaps it's not so hard.



So they faked a method that was totally impossible, in order to construct a plausible scenario to cover their real actions.
Ridiculous.
Any luck with that explanation about the relative sizes of the missiles and the gaps, yet? Still waiting...

When this failed, they concocted a huge and elaborate plot to fake a terrorist attack, using missiles they couldn't possibly conceal, and a cover story that could never be plausible, to drum up public support that they didn't need, to try again to invade a country they already controlled.

There is only one who is pushing the lie of missiles, it is you. You lie about 9/11 and have no evidence to back your claims.

You don't care if you are spreading lies about the murder of thousands of fellow Americans killed by followers of UBL. You don't care you are spreading lies.

Why did you skip learning physics? Why do you lie about the murder of thousands of your fellow citizens?

It certainly is.

From my marvellous perspective (and while I don't wish to speak for others, I think it is safe to say that the other skeptics here will agree)...

1. You have completely failed to provide any verifiable, robust, incontrovertible evidence in support of your spurious claims.

2. You have repeatedly refused to answer, and/or studiously avoided answering any questions that challenge your spurious claims.

3. You have side-stepped, handwaved away or simply dismissed out of hand any evidence that contradicts your spurious claims.

4. You have dismissed out of hand, without explanation, any and all alternative interpretations of what little evidence you have provided.

In short, you have got nothing, you never had it, and you will never have it.

You have no physical evidence.

You have ONE picture in which you've made an interpretation of what you see. You have not posted any other photos of the damage from other angles to support your claim.

This combined with you blatant inability to grasp facts and embrace fantasy leaves you with nothing but a sad fairy tale.

You have no missile parts or reports of missile parts.
You have no USAF flight logs wherein an F-15 or B-1B took off with a cruise missiles only to return without them.
You have no log of unaccounted for missiles or any ordinance.
You no recent interviews with eye-witnesses making claims of missiles or small planes, only from 2001 and those are worthless.

All you have is a claim that missiles were used because, in your view, a 767 is incapable of causing the damage to the WTC. A claim not supported by science or the real world facts. In other words - you have nothing.

It certainly gets boring waiting for you to provide any evidence, physical or otherwise.

When do you think that you will get around to presenting any?

Or are you still going to base the whole thing on your personal incredulity about a piece of cladding that got severed nearly all the way through and a few others that got bent a certain way?

JSanderO 28th February 2020 03:53 AM

way long past the time for Steve. He is essentially a doubting Thomas and effectively nothing more than a troll. He is not making any effort at rigor or integrity. He should be ignored. Close the thread.

Once without resorting to whataboutery. That would be ideal.

You have a photo which you interpret as excluding a plane. We disagree with your interpretation.

You have an alternative explanation which you reckon explains the photo, but it conflicts with just about every other thing know about the event.

So there we are; either a) it wasn't a plane or b) your interpretation is wrong.

When confronted with reasons to regard a) as utterly incredible and therefore b) as highly probable, your "answer" is essentially just "what about the photo?". Simply put, you are wrong about the photo.
