Now, if we're going to do this honestly you have to set the goalposts ahead of time.

This started this thread:


I watched one of the 9-11 conspiracy videos today.  At least with the Pentagon crash and flight 93, they make a very good point:  the debris and targets in the crashes do not look the way they should.  

An extraordinary claim. So far I have seen no evidence beyond "it doesn't look the way it should and I know, I'm a mechanical engineer".

I don't claim any mechanical competence, but I call for evidence. Nothing more, nothing less.

Thus your comment is disingenuous. I did not move the goalposts.

You have to give some indication of what you will accept as "extraordinary evidence" ahead of time. I did not say you moved the goalposts.

I don't even try to convince people with closed minds
