“Truthers” are fact-challenged

I realize it’s been a while, so it is now time to smack the “truthers” around some more.

Readers will remember “Truther ” B from a previous article.  He is again pulling his “follow the money” nonsense to “prove a conspiracy. Of course, the problem with that is just because one benefits financially from a tragedy does NOT mean they caused it. That is a logical fallacy known as “Post hoc ergo propter hoc,” which as we see here, is “a conclusion that assumes that if ‘A’ occurred after ‘B’ then ‘B’ must have caused ‘A. ” The A, in this case, would be the financial benefiting, and B would have been 9/11. Another example of this logical fallacy is if you have a rich uncle  who died in a car crash and left you all his money, that does NOT mean you caused the car crash.

It should also be pointed out that the various people who made money off books supporting the various 9/11 conspiracy theories can be said to have benefited financially from 9/1, so, using ” truther logic” ( an obvious oxymoron), the people who made money off said books were behind 9/11. No, I’m not saying they were- I’m just pointing out the blatantly obvious flaw in the “follow the money” argument.

Next “Truther” B goes on to make the claim that cell phone calls were impossible to make from airplanes in 2001, but as I pointed out in one of my earliest articles, that’s false.

First, we have this quote from Slate.com: ” “According to industry experts, it is possible to use cell phones with varying success during the ascent and descent of commercial airline flights, although the difficulty of maintaining a signal appears to increase as planes gain altitude. Some older phones, which have stronger transmitters and operate on analog networks, can be used at a maximum altitude of 10 miles, while phones on newer digital systems can work at altitudes of 5 to 6 miles. A typical airline cruising altitude would be 35,000 feet, or about 6.6 miles.”

 

Simply put, cell phones DO work on planes, just not very well- and that article was from September 14, 2001- 3 days AFTER 9/11.  Furthermore, most of the calls on 9/11 were made from AIRPHONES, not cell phones.

 

In short, anything a “truther” says  about 9/11 is composed of Scandium and Americium
