Two new papers at The Journal of 9/11 Studies

Two new papers have been published at The Journal of 9/11 Studies.

The first is "Obstacles to Persuasion: Lessons from the Classroom", by Mark Vorobej.

Professor Vorobej teaches Philosophy, and is a former Director of the Centre for Peace Studies, at McMaster University. Here is the introductory paragraph from his paper.

"From January to April 2008, I taught an unusual upper-level undergraduate Philosophy course on Argumentation Theory at McMaster University. The course focused on such questions as “What makes a good argument good?” and “What makes a belief rational?” - where an argument is understood as an exercise in rational persuasion aimed at inculcating rational belief. And approximately five weeks of the course were devoted to studying the arguments of the 9/11 truth movement."

The second paper is an updated version of a letter previously submitted by Michael Fury. It is called "The Ghost in the Machines: Evidence of Foreknowledge in the WTC Hard Drive Recoveries." An excerpt is below.

"The locations of the computers in question within the towers is unknown, but if Wagner is correct, two possibilities emerge: (1) either the "insiders" had foreknowledge of the precise impact points of the aircraft (otherwise why assume that the main frames would be destroyed?) or (2) they had foreknowledge of the total destruction of the towers."

Interesting articles

Both articles were well written, with the Convar data recovery article simply putting a reality out there for all to see.

The Vorobej article was interesting to me in that it allowed one to see responsible and intelligent argumentation on the issue.

Both articles support the contention that insider complicity had to occur and that a new independent investigation with subpoena power is warranted.

Follow the money

The info on the harddrives that Convar retrieved is every bit as interesting as the identity of the put-options insider with "no connections to Al Qaeda" mentioned in the 9/11 comission report. Since Convar is a German firm, it might be easier to get hold of their info, than to ever find out who the 9/11 comission report was refering to.

German authorities could force Convar to share what they know. Any germans around? Push for an investigation in your country!

The Vorobej paper was an extremely interesting read. I hope more teachers will find ways to raise the topic of 9/11 in their classes. I do what I can, but since I'm teaching music... it's sometimes hard to get there!

More good tools to use in the cause of truth!

Thanks for keeping us updated, Mr. Ryan.

The first paper, "Obstacles to Persuasion: Lessons from the Classroom", by Mark Vorobej, can be printed and dropped into the boxes of philosophy instructors everywhere for very little cost. If combined with copies of The New Pearl Harbor and 9/11 Mysteries as a package with a short cover letter, this might actually encourage other professors to offer a similar course and will almost certainly create a buzz within the academic philosophical community.

9/11 Mysteries can be quite traumatic for some people, so substituting Loose Change Final Cut or another film is worth considering.

While you're on campus, you can drop the Fourteen Points paper off over at the science department, too.

Love is a verb, brothers and sisters, let's get busier!

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.
