Abraham, Speculation is an indispensable stage of scientific inquiries. One has to consider all the possible explanations in order to insure that the true hypothesis is not omitted from consideration on the ground that it is unpleasant, sounds far-fetched, or is unconventional. Try reading the first parts of "Thinking about 'Conspiracy Theories': 9/11 and JFK", because your scientific education is severely lacking. Were I embracing speculations as CONCLUSIONS without considering their relationship to the evidence, THEN you might have a case. Instead, you display your ignorance of science by completely suppressing that I am not ACCEPTING these speculations as conclusions but only as POSSIBILITIES, where I make a point of featuring students of 9/11 who have ideas that may or may not deserve further exploration, as I have done with video fakery/no planes and, of course, what happened to the WTC. I would guess that I have been more open-minded to a wider range of approaches toward controversial issues in 9/11 than has anyone else in the movement. Your complaint is simply absurd.
You must have a short memory, but I was the person who featured Judy Wood on my radio program some fifteen (15) times and have stuck up for her through thick and through thin, including featuring her as my principal speaker at the Madison conference. Have you never watched "The Science and Politics of 9/11: What's Controversial, What's Not?" I would think that you would be ashamed of attacking me on grounds like these, which are the very ones that have been directed against Judy and her work. If you read through the thread to which you have contributed in your response to Jeffrey Orling, you will see that I have been supportive of her work throughout. I was about to post a note of thanks to you and Andrew for showing up and, in fact, I just reposted your post with those excellent links on a thread of mine at ATS. I really think some of you do not know where your best interests lie, where creating threads like this to attack me when I have been so supportive of Judy for so long is completely unfounded. I am sorry, Abraham, but you have your head where the sun does not shine.
