About Michael

Bio

I have a BSc in Computer Science and Psychology from the University of Calgary. I work as a software designer. I am a member of Scientists For 9/11 Truth. I am a 9/11 skeptic and a skeptic skeptic. I am in the process of starting an on-line magazine called "Skeptopathy". I also extremely interested organizational psychopathy - how intelligent psychopaths quickly rise up in organizations of all kinds.

Why is someone a "conspiracy theorist" merely because they question the government account of something? Isn't that plain old skepticism?
For a steel structure to come down so fast and so symmetrically vertical support columns need to be separated simultaneously floor by floor. There is no way gradual damage due to fire could do this. This is why it has never ever happened before in the history of civilization. The burden of proof is on those who falsely claim this extraordinary scenario is possible but steadfastly refuse to provide evidence. Instead of supporting your position you are attempting to shift the burden of proof to me. This is the burden of proof logical fallacy. Claiming something did no happen because you personally find it difficult to believe is the appeal to incredulity logical fallacy. I need evidence not illogic.

In other words you have absolutely no evidence. All you have is faith. I need evidence. The rapid highly symmetric falls of all three buildings (WTC 7 and the Twin towers) are impossible to scientifically explain using the official story. The only time we see buildings fall that quickly and that symmetrically is when some form of controlled demolition is used. That is why there is absolutely no scientific evidence whatsoever to support the official fairy tale of how the buildings came down.

Nobody saw heat stress cause structural failure of the Twin Towers or WTC 7. That is an irrational _belief_ with absolutely no scientific support whatsoever. No one denies that hot enough fires can weaken steel. 9/11 skeptics however _know_ that there is absolutely no evidence that the fires in the three towers were hot enough to catastrophically weaken structural steel so that it offered almost no resistance.

The reason I asked this question was because the first time I started merely asking questions about the official story of 9/11 on a "skeptic" forum I was immediately called a "conspiracy theorist" even though I was simply questioning and not presenting an alternative explanation. Closer to home, before asking this question I had been trying for a week to start a debate here on why the official story of the Twin Tower collapses on 9/11 which had absolutely no scientific evidence is considered scientific. Conversely why is the controlled demolition hypothesis rejected when it actually has scientific supporting evidence. Eventually the response I got was basically that discussing conspiracy theories were not allowed here. 9/11 makes a lot of people including TED highly irrational.

What is the story of your personal mission?
Check out skeptopathy.com to find out what skepticism is and what it is not. Organizational psychopathy deals with what happens to psychopaths when they enter organizations. The evidence shows that they rise up quickly through the ranks. It shows that the higher a person is in any power hierarchy the more likely he will be a psychopath. (See the books "Snakes in Suits" and "Corporate Psychopaths" for the research.) This logically implies that psychopaths will tend to occupy the positions of greatest power in the world. That is the world is probably run by psychopaths.
