    So I just found out one of my friends from work is a die hard conspiracy theorist. he believes EVERYTHIGN in loose change, and thinks anyone believing differently is just a puppet of the "world media" and the "new world order".

    the funny thign is, he think's I'm crazy for believing all phd's and experts, and he is justified in believing what a couple of kids tell him on an online video.

    not only does he look liek a fool with his 9/11 mysteries crap...he then went on a tirade about the floruide in the dribking water.

    hi-larious.

    I know a few 9/11 conspiracy whacks, but the flouride thing is just funny.

    I'm not sure why people watch loose change and think the film makes any sort of conclusions. The makers themselves would admit that they are only posing questions. I think to assume it's all true is as much a mistake as dismissing everything in the film as paranoia.

    I believe Loose Change is being recut for theatrical release.

    Surely all of us have some degree of skepticism the "offical story", no?
    I'm glad there are people out there still asking questions about this stuff. I just wish it was the professional media, hah yeah right.

    Just today the head of security at my company was in my office telling me how aliens visited ancient Egypt, helped out with the pyramids, and that hieroglyphics were basically dictated to the Egyptians by the aliens scholars... :roll:

    I didn't try to hide my contempt at all, and made some comment about The Locke Ness Monster and anal probes…

    so you dont believe in the whole media-opoly and nwo?
    lol, watch the tv funhouse cartoon, those same guys that made that got fired/laid off, one..

    if you havent recognized by now how the media feeds you what they want you to be fed, then i think you're a little close minded.. Why do you think the government is still trying their best to further internet restrictions and monitoring, so they can take this shit over and feed us what they want us to see...

    Almost like that asian country where their internet was/is a closed intranet basically and they had no clue what was going on outside of their little niche until some hackers came in and opened it up for them.. anyone got further details on that??

    I try not to let that shit get to my head, the conspiracy shit, but im glad there are people out there putting effort to ask questions to at least kinda level the playing field.

    Oh no, those kids are raging dipshits. They went on some talk show against the popular science guys that showed all the errors in the movie, and got their asses handed to them. The one kid who is darker colored I remember came off as a complete fucking moron.

    I don't believe in conspiricies; but I don't believe that the media/government tells the general, stupid, panic-y public the whole truth about, well, anything important.

    no, i dont pay attention to those 911 videos.. i hate em and never have watched em.. ive always been more curious about secret societies, gov coverups "other than 911", mediaopoly debates, nwo, united nations, etc..

    i believe to a certain extent, but i dont let it get to my head because some of the shit is just outright rediculous.

    As with most things that have a controversial base: there's one side's story, then the other side's story.....then there's the trueth, somewhere in the middle.

    Well the thing is, if there were secret societies doing what they are doing, then we honestly wouldnt know as much as we know about the ones that supposedly exist.

    On the note of Lose Change, there have been many people and shows that have totally debunked their claims and answered their questions. Not to say I dont feel the government is responsible for what happened, I think they are responsible because of their actions in the middle east and other countries. We create terrorists. I mean, if you want a quick example, we the US of A funded and supported Iraq and their war against Iran. We put Saddam into power. I guess we took him out too. Why do you think Iran hates America? Not because of our over indulgences or religion. No its because of who our government backs and supports and the open threats against them.

    Our government does a lot of shady things, and well I think we are just feeling some of the backlash. Eh, but Im not trying to preach about anything, Im tired of the conspiracy theories, as they focus on the wrong things, and Im tired of our crappy government.

    That would be interesting to have seen. I can't really imagine how they would have got their asses handed to them though, since they were only looking for answers in the first place, not preaching a gospel.

    Just because the movie itself has been near entirely discredited doesn't mean that the question are no longer relevant. They are relevant until answered. Agreed?

    That said, I don't know what's known and what's not regarding 9/11.

    what do you mean? they aren't relevant any longer. if everything you ask gets an answer, and everything you try to persuade gets a more in detailed . factually based refutation, then yes, your arguments are null and void.

    eh what I mean is that the questions AREN'T relevant BECAUSE someone has refuted them...and not just because "someone" has refuted them, but because countless experts have refuted them.

    It'd be like me saying "Hey I bet atoms don't exist, it's just the nwo trying to control our thoughts." and several hundred scientists saying "heres your proof. they exist."

    no one is goign to go Yeah, but the question is relevant! maybe those scientist were telling the truth about atoms, or maybe they are really government stooges!

    ah. Your logic seems entirery sound, no argument here.

    It's my mistake, lemme backtrack. My original meaning was to ask, even though Loose Change's reputation is crap, are not some of the questions still unanswered, and still important, despite who first asked them? I don't know... maybe everything has been disproved. Maybe everything is on the up and up.
