Conspiracy Nuts

When faced with a sore lack of sensible or factual rebuttals, people will ofttimes resort to name-calling, and such has been the lame — yet effective — refutation of facts pertaining to the attack on September 11, 2001.  I wish I had a dollar for every time I've heard the name conspiracy nuts used to reference those who have looked at the facts and realized the official government story is the most ridiculous conspiracy theory about 9/11 presented to date.

I wish I could understand.  I cannot.

Perhaps some must cling to partisan politics, lest they lose an earthly banner under which to march, because their favored party was then at the helm.  Admittedly, discovering only evil in high places is a most grievous matter to embrace.

Perhaps there just isn't enough time in a person's life to devote to studying what really happened.  It would take nearly as much time to research the facts about 9/11 as is required to watch an entire NFL football game — with commercials, time-outs, half-time, and the customary, science-defying stretching of time in the 4th quarter, after the 2-minute warning.  One of those games can eat an entire afternoon out of a person's life.

Perhaps the next generation — schooled 13 years (K-12) in Marxist ideology — will be willing and able to ask the obvious questions about the government's conspiracy theory.  I rather think, though, they — as the indoctrinated products of the outcome — may find the tragic, historical event brilliant, even a necessary evil.

There is also the challenge presented by "I'm a Christian."  Frankly, I try to avoid saying that; just that.  I feel it needs a qualifier in today's world and personally have adopted the term Biblical Christian to describe myself, because in spite of my sinfulness, I do believe God's Word and ways are true, and I should endeavor to please Him, as I plead for, submit to, the Holy Spirit's help in living a life set aside for Christ.  Anyone, including several Presidents of the United States, can call himself a Christian while approving the murder of babies, lying, embracing the gods of other religions, installing homosexuals in governing positions, using crude language, furthering the globalist teachings of the United Nations in our schools, aiding in the creation of a police state, and being complicit in the murder of citizens of our country.  Only God can see the hearts of men.  As fruit inspectors, we should be able to see the difference between an orange and a bloody slab of pork.

Last week, I surmised that the truth about 9/11 (complicity vs. Arab men with box cutters) is as critical to understanding what happened to the United States of America as is the truth about the origin of the world (creation vs. evolution) to understanding Christianity: fallen man redeemed by the shed blood of the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.  If one refuses to acknowledge the glaring problems with the government's official conspiracy theory, that person will be able to wave a flag, hide under the skirt of his or her chosen political party while childishly calling others names, and...forever wonder how freedom was lost, when a BIG, FAT CHUNK of it was handily expunged after the boogey man killed nearly 3000 people in a day.

Perhaps — and I hope — the best explanation for the numbers of people accepting a nonsensical conspiracy theory lies in our abhorrence of evil.  Deeds of darkness belong in the dark, and this one was perpetrated in broad daylight; not so very well executed, as evidenced by the vast number of unexplainable and scientific problems which obliterate the official conspiracy theory.  Which of us, though, wants to believe such a heinous crime could be committed?  Most of us recoil from evil.  Looking the other way, in this instance, was not the genesis of our nation's demise, but it was the beginning of the end.

My heart is broken for the families of the victims, many of whom know what didn't really happen.  How horribly alone they must feel as conspiracy nuts whose loved ones were murdered.  The upbraiding I've received from people who believe the government conspiracy theory hasn't been pleasant, but it pales in comparison with the wounds to those whose family and friends were killed.  [9/11 Press for Truth; Netflix: 9/11 Press for Truth INSTANT PLAY; Family Steering Committee: 9/11 Unanswered Questions; Respected Leaders and Families Launch 9/11 Truth Statement Demanding Deeper Investigation into the Events of 9/11]

Half a football game's length.  Half.  No scantily clad women with pompons.  No clever, entertaining commercials.  Crowds, but no cheering.  No real beginning or end, and most certainly not nearly exhaustive.  More like the fiery tip of an iceberg of information.  But it's a place to begin...if it matters at all, and you're not watching the football game.

The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.  Psalm 34:16

I guess it's just that people would rather have this part of their brain run for them by manipulative and designing men.

May their chains set lightly upon them.
