A complete and total fraud. He completely disregarded everything you said about whistle-blowers. Good job with that Nick. Amazing how he's "not aware" of Sibel Edmonds. The script he was given to "debunk" 9/11 Truth seems to have missed things like Sibel Edmonds.

Who Is? Archives

A 9/11 debunker AND a Bush defender? I will be a skeptic

and say I think this guy and his new magazine are owned by al-CIA-duh.

What a joke!

"You could be right young man...I don't know about that..on the other hand you're probably a holocaust denier...oh I'm sorry did I call you a holocaust denier??? Well that would kinda make you a Nazi wouldn't it??...But again I'm a simple man with simple common sense not a Nazi or traitor..."

I can see through him I just wonder if the general public can? I mean is this the best they've got??

Show "Holocaust Deniar as an insult?" by who controls th...

Get a grip

It is very well documented. Its embarrassing to have these constant BS & easily debunked theories keep coming up on 9/11 truth sites.
The moon landings were real
The Holocaust happened
Global Warming is a fact.

Stop with the BS and concentrate on the reality that 9/11 was an inside job.

Global warming, as championed by Al Gore, is by no means

"a fact." Do your research.

Consider mass emailing truth messages. More info here: http://www.911blogger.com/node/13321

I have so has he

You obviously have not and you are an embarrassment & a liability to the 9/11 truth movement.

Take it someplace else, who.

911 and the holocaust

they are close cousins as far as the american media is concerned.
both are " bad to think" except in certain pre-prescribed and very specific ways
and i dont know why .but i suspect that official permission is not granted for free discourse on these subjects by some hidden propiganda clearing house .

condis shoes ,yes -cheneys aim , ok ,- bushes intellect , go for it , 911,[sound of crickets] holocaust [crickets again] the nau and amero,no amigo!

if you wanna see freedom of speech for such things get ye to denmark!!!!!

very telling

your minus 13 rating here illustrates the difficulty many have with open discorse, and an open marketplace of ideas

the same group that supresses holocaust truth is at work on 911 , until we acnowlege that very troubling fact we will not see 911 truth making headway , the us government and israeli govt need a purging desperately ,italy survives a new govt every 18 months , what the hell are you so afraid of ?
the truth perhaps

"Blind Believer Magazine"

Where does this guy get off calling his publication "Skeptic Magazine"? He's not exercising skepticism at all - he's exercising blind belief in government. His mag should be re-named "Blind Believer Magazine."

I actually think he's on the Mossad payroll, but he might be just ignorant.

Skeptic? I think not.

I would like to see him answer one simple question.
How can you call yourself a skeptic if there is even ONE unanswered question regarding 9/11?
No crime would ever be solved if investigators used his logic and techniques of dismissing suspicions and evidence as irrelevant, because they are only a small piece of a large puzzle.
That's how crimes are solved, by putting together ALL the pieces of the puzzle.

Personally I wouldn't waste my time

on clowns like Michael Shermer. He is obviously a NWO shill.

Thanks for the notice

We will give him a "Little Beruit" welcome. "Little Beruit" was a nickname affectionatley bestowed upon our town by George Bush the First.

Shermer Is Cherry-Picking His Skepticism

It's people like Shermer who do a major disservice to science by cherrypicking the subjects that are, in his mind, "worthy of being skeptical about". In the case of controversial events like the assassination of JFK, or 9/11, for example, this "skepticism" is directed not on the basis of hard evidence and rigorous inquiry, but instead, on (a) what is convenient and easily digestible, (b) doesn't challenge our comfort zones, (c) what doesn't upset the powers-that-be, and (d) what is less likely to cause controversy or prompt the people to question corrupt motives of our leaders. Shermer is yet another shill for the status quo, a stunning example of "applied intellectual cowardice."

As an apparent (alleged) skeptic, Shermer should follow the advice given by the late great Dr. Carl Sagan, who reminded us all that "extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence", (or "extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof"). In the case of 9/11, the US Government's claim that "19 flight-school flunk-outs under the direction of a guy in a cave 12,000 miles away managed to run rings around the multi-trillion dollar military/security/intelligence/law-enforcement network, the most extensive and powerful ever assembled on Earth, without any prior knowledge, and without any attempt to use our defenses", is a claim that falls into the "beyond the extraordinary" category. And as of yet, virtually zero hard evidence or proof (with verifiable chains of custody that would stand up in a US court of law), has been presented to the US public by government agencies or the Bush Administration to confirm their allegations. There is a huge and growing body of material, from circumstantial to hard evidence, however, that the agencies responsible for preventing such attacks (as well as senior politicians and military personnel) at the very least, knew about the attacks well in advance, and deliberately allowed them to happen.

Shermer appears to be another "fairweather skeptic".


people like shermer do no less than help bring fascism to america . he should be held accountable for his actions and he should be investigated to see if he is an agent following the orders of some anti american intelligence apparatus

Ask Shermer about WTC 7 and it's....

...."I gotta go."

Shermer is an obvious shill but he shouldn't be underestimated. It's amazing how many of these guys are on national tours. Glenn Beck comes to mind as another recent one.

Shermer is working a psy op. There are in fact citizens who want to be consoled. You shouldn't underestimate the persuasive powers of someone making statements with resolute conviction.

Shermer is playing to the ostrichs and deniers who don't want to see or feel the truth.

...don't believe them!

The inflection in his voice

The inflection in his voice alone gives him away. He doesn't even sound like he believes anything he's saying. This guy is as sleazy as the "Harley" guy who explained away the collapses of the twin towers about an hour after it happened on fox. I can't believe these people are able to digest food.

Great job

Cyberfossil: The gentleman who asked these questions is the type we need leading the charge in the Truth Movement. He is much more eloquent and knowledgeable than the so-called Skeptic or anyone else in the room. Why does the US Media dodge Siebel and other important witnesses or testimony such as Bhutto's comment to frost that Bin Laden had been killed? That's a question beyond my knowledge. But I do know based on an examination of evidence that the government version of 9/11 is almost completely false. Kudos to Temple and this intelligent leader for trying to get the truth out before more lives are lost in this wrongly led war on terrorism without end.

great job

"I will not withdraw from this war even if Laura and Barney are the only ones supporting me." -George W. Bush

Psy-Op Specialist

His entire career has been about building credibility for a major operation such as this. He is owned.


Great Work!! This guy was squirming !!

Thanks for confronting this rat.

He calls himself a skeptic and yet buys the most implausible govt. 9/11 myth ever concocted hook, line and sinker.

This man has been PLACED in this position to be a shill to confuse people who fancy themselves skeptics.

SKEPTICS MAG. if that's what it really was, would have been leading the charge for 9/11 truth.

Former CIA Director, William Colby, said, "There is no media of any consequence not controlled by the CIA."

This man must be investigated when the 9/11 truth breaks mainstream and the trials begin.

Lying sack of you-know-what.

"Nobody thought of planes into a building, you know, it was pretty clever...creative..."

Thank you and great work Philly!

"Holocaust Deniers"

He's working from the playbook - following the script - what a piece of sxcrement this guy is

Too transparent?

Isn't that a bit too transparent? Or does it really not matter how transparent it is? Do they simply count on people not wanting to be classified among "Holocaust deniers"?

What if some truther sued him for labelling?

Try shaming him into being a real skeptic instead.

I don't think you would have any luck suing. His statements seem too vague. Better to take a different tack. Maybe better to suggest you respect him for his work in exposing holocaust denial for the lie that it is. Now if he would apply the same skepticism and logic to the issues of 9/11 he could do the same for the causes of Truth and Justice, which seem to be his apparent goals.

Shermer trotted out to respond to Truthers on Maher

When 9/11 Truthers Infiltrate(d) Bill Maher Show in Oct http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5BJzEshMes CNN's Glenn Beck (9/11 Truth = Tim McVeigh) brought Michael Shermer of Skeptics Society and James Meigs, Editor of Popular Mechanics, out of the woodwork to respond! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnKppff5yQ8

Shermer is a total shill. His magazine should be called The Gullible. Zan of the LA area has spoken with Shermer before. I'm sure he will be there. (Some of these dates are the same as the Repuke and Dem debates here.)

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

Shermer and the Bush administration

Has Michael Shermer *ever* made any serious criticisms or investigations of the Bush administration?

He seems to be making excuses for them, even denying gross negligence.
