Christopher Hitchens responds brilliantly in his own inimitable style to a "truther's" attempt to hijack a debate about God. Full debate: http://vimeo.com/26...

unfortunately that's also how my religious grandmother would respond to me if i ever tried explaining something such as evolution to her
It has been investigated over and over...and these loons come and interrupt every event, whether it is Hitchens or Bill Maher - in fact, Bill Maher had to throw these loons off of his show for their disrupting and childlike tactics. Hitchens was exactly right in his response - you don't allow irrationalists posing as "rational" to have the same floor as you, in particular when they have ZERO evidence from a single respectable scientist. 9/11 is not an event Al Qaeda or Bin Laden ever denied or denies - in fact, they gloat about it and use it as a "glory" of their jihad. It is undeniable, just like the Holocaust. You have an ally in your 9/11 truthers campaign (along with Holocaust denying) in Ahmadenijad. What a great leader in the 9/11 truthers movement.
As Richard Dawkins has said, "Be open minded, but not so open minded where your brains fall out"
Have you taken the time to really investigate it? I thought that the truthers were 'morons' before I took the time to do thorough research myself. Up until about 4 months ago I thought it was all bs too. The media will do all it can to hide the truth. The perfect example of this was the recent protest on Wallstreet that as ignored by the mainstream media. CNN even criticized the protesters with sarcasm as being 'overeducated, young, and unemployed'. I have learned to think for myself and to research and not trust anyone since I left my cult years ago. This world is not a place where truth is easily found, it has to be sought after. You have to use your own critical thinking skills instead of thinking with your emotions. I'm a skeptic and sometimes it really sucks to see how awful humans can be to one another, but I refuse to swallow the blue pill, I took the red pill nearly 10 years ago and now there is no going back.
Yes I have. There is absolutely no scientific evidence. One must study science to a slight degree so one is not fooled by pseudo-science. In addition, this is not something that is even in dispute in the Islamic fanatical world - 9/11 is something they are very much proud of.
Araina ... rationalwiki is in general a good site for sceptics, anti-speudoscience, atheists, free thinkers, rationalists and humanists. Their article on 911 woo is good at summarising the many varied and strange 911 conspiracies. They are all easily discredited.
