Blather: On the 9-11 Conspiracy Theories

Blather: On the 9-11 Conspiracy Theories:

"A couple of weeks ago, I was sitting at home listening to the James Whale show on Talksport Radio in London. I generally try not to listen to his show too much (it makes me vaguely ill), but this particular evening David Icke was on.
Now David Icke is a fascinating character. He's charming, he's witty and he's articulate. But he's also deeply paranoid. There's a job-lot of references to 'they' and not a lot on who 'they' actually are.
He sees shadowy government agents at every turn - that's right, anyone wearing a yellow jacket (parking attendant, cop, security guard or just anyone that ever tells David to do anything) is a government agent. Even if they don't know it themselves. The Illuminati haunt almost every utterance and nothing is ordinary. Everything is extraordinary.
But there's nothing there. I'm sorry, there just isn't. There's nothing. Nothing. No evidence. No documents. No learned testimony. No verifiable facts. And whilst would-be Forteans such as ourselves here at are supposed to remain impartial and seek a condition of 'negative capability', there are occasions when the sheer critical mass of acceptable stupidity and the ease with which so many are buying into this half-assed, hysterical, unverifiable conjecture as though it were fact, simply becomes too much to bear. And, it is no different when it comes to 9/11. "
