Rather than spend a lot of time today actually debunking those 9/11 conspiracies, I’m going to tackle an even less plausible one: the reptile people who live among us.
No, I’m not making this up. See the Wikipedia page on it. Also see pages by crackpots supreme, John Rhodes and David Icke. This interview with Icke is pretty priceless, not least because of the credulous tone of the interviewer.
The point, of course, is to talk about conspiracy theories in general, as well as phony skepticism and the nearly religious devotion to some nonreligious ideas. And yeah, that is a backhanded way of smirking about 9/11 conspiracy theories, but I am emphatically not going to bring that up unless a caller does.
But if that’s your thing, then here are a couple more hilarious 9/11 links for you to enjoy:
- Penn & Teller’s Bullshit does 9/11 conspiracies
- The “Cracked” website asks “Was 9/11 an inside job?” (It gets funnier on page 2.)
And for general skepticism:
- The conspiracy theory page at The Skeptic’s Dictionary
Oh, and one last reptoid link:
- OMG George Bush Sr. has slit eyes!!!!! It MUST mean he’s a reptoid, because it couldn’t possibly be a camera glitch.
