I'm asking for some VOTES here.
I created an ae911truth entry on Wikipedia. It has been "nominated for deletion" because it is "non-notable." I need other people to come vote to KEEP it.
Religion affects conspiracy belief

People who are active in organized religion are considerably less likely to believe in 9/11 conspiracy theories than are folks who have no religious preferences, according to the latest Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll.
Only 29 percent of people who've attended worship services at a church, synagogue or mosque in the previous week believe federal officials may have assisted in the 9/11 attacks or permitted them so that the United States could go to war in the Middle East. But 46 percent of people with no religious prefence entertain this theory.
The other way to look at it is that people who attend weekly organized religion meetings are more likely to believe everything they see on the network news.
I had to start with SOMETHING, so please feel free to join in, propose changes to meet Wikipedia changes and stop UL from deleting Kevin Ryan's entry again. Since they deleted the last one, SOMEONE has put in entries for several OTHER Kevin Ryans.
I am appalled by the current state of 9/11-related entries on Wikipedia. Looking at the main 9/11 article there, I see that editing has been blocked, which has the effect of freezing the Official Conspiracy Theory as the only available interpretation. There is a Wikipedia entry for the 9/11 Truth Movement, but the main 9/11 article only links to "conspiracy theories," which is not a favorable entry for us.
Does anyone have hardcopy documentation, as a FOIA request to the FBI with a reply, stating that there is no hard evidence that Osama bin Laden was involved in 9/11, or is this only a rumor?
I think that it is important for us to clean house a little bit, making sure that we are dealing with documented facts rather than replicated rumor.
