Theories and thought

Lubos recently had an analysis of certain theories regarding the collapse of the twin towers which I found very interesting. Now Jonah Goldberg weighs in with some very revealing thinking about the nature of reasonable discourse and belief.


  • His opening was nice:

    "There is a virulent form of unpatriotism festering in America today. Like an algae bloom that deprives life of oxygen, it starves democracy of the air of reason. It now thrives on what we call the far Left, but like a dead zone off the coast, it moves with the tides."

    What amazes me most about seemingly intelligent people falling for such conspiracy theories as the 9-11 one is that they are often the same ones talking about how "incompetent" the Bush administration is (in Iraq and so on.) You just can't have it both ways, people.
