I think it is an great opportunity to 'social network / promote' the 911truth mission there.
Plese join ;)
On 9/11 Truth Awakening I posted a blog about "The Backfire Effect" which I have seen referenced in a few other places. Here are some excerpts.
There is an interesting article: “The Backfire Effect“, by David McRaney, cross-posted on OpEdNews with the subtitle: Why Showing People the Truth Sometimes Makes Them Believe BS Even More. This is interesting not just because of the article, but the reaction in comments that follow.
It starts out well enough, citing a recent study previously mentioned in this blog, conveniently summarized:
The Misconception: When your beliefs are challenged with facts, you alter your opinions and incorporate the new information into your thinking.
The Truth: When your deepest convictions are challenged by contradictory evidence, your beliefs get stronger.
Some persons have dodged truth movement problems by exaggerating the amount of scientific expertise needed to ponder them. Even in relatively advanced truth movement products are problems (for the media and government) that are found via simple methods, e.g. just reading the official reports. Lets consider naming explicitly varied categories of problems according to how simple were the methods used to see them.

Biologists and sociologists tell us that our brains evolved in small groups or tribes.
As one example of how profoundly the small-group environment affected our brains, Daily Galaxy points out:
Research shows that one of the most powerful ways to stimulate more buying is celebrity endorsement. Neurologists at Erasmus University in Rotterdam report that our ability to weigh desirability and value doesn’t function normally if an item is endorsed by a well-known face. This lights up the brain’s dorsal claudate nucleus, which is involved in trust and learning. Areas linked to longer-term memory storage also fire up. Our minds overidentify with celebrities because we evolved in small tribes. If you knew someone, then they knew you. If you didn’t attack each other, you were probably pals.
Numerous criticisms have been received of "What Hit the Pentagon?". Some pointed to errors, some were unfounded. The new version, version 4, has now been placed at the Journal of 9/11 Studies. I have attempted to correct errors and have added a preface to help explain the purpose of the paper.
If this proves to provoke further criticism, a version 5 may well be produced, as I regard this issue as extremely important. The fact that explosives were used at the WTC is now widely accepted by the truth movement, as the science is now well understood. In the case of the Pentagon attack, however, there is a lack of cohesion in the movement because widely differing views are held. This damages our credibility. The paper provides a study of evidence to show what can, and more importantly, what cannot, be scientifically proved. It makes the case for avoiding asserting to the public what cannot be proved. It is important to avoid action which will impede progress toward a new investigation, with the hope of prosecution of those responsible for 9/11.
Senator also wants to see recent study confirming explosives in the debris of the World Trade Center as Fox News propagandizes the report.
By Manny Badillo, nephew of Thomas Joseph Sgroi, written on 06/03/09
NEW YORK, NY -- New York's junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand fully supports the victims’ family members, hero first responders, and all New Yorkers pursuit of justice concerning the events of Sept. 11th, 2001.
Filling the Senate seat of Secretary Hillary Clinton, Sen. Gillibrand is one of the first in Congress to speak publicly about her commitment to finding out what really happened during the unsolved mass murder of innocents close to eight years ago in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.
After hearing of the recent peer-reviewed and refereed study, which found explosives in the debris of the world trade center, Sen. Gillibrand said, “ “Based on what you’ve just told me, and that 70% of family members questions were not answered during the commission hearings, I think those questions should be answered.”
Activist editors at Wikipedia have changed the name of the "World Trade Center Controlled Demolition Hypothesis" page to "World Trade Center Demolition Conspiracy Theories", are removing all links to the paper "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe" recently published in the refereed Open Chemical Physics Journal (including from the 9/11 Truth Movement page and even Dr. Steven Jones' page), and have banned and/or restricted some users that re-add the links and question their policy.
See the discussion thread at TruthAction.org- many links to relevant pages at Wikipedia; the "Talk" page is very revealing of their bias, hypocrisy and intellectual dishonesty:
Wikipedia editors livid over new paper
The new paper has pulled the rug out from under the wikipedia front lines defending the official story and they have now suddenly changed the title of the demolition page from --
Controlled demolition hypothesis for the collapse of the World Trade Center
World Trade Center controlled demolition conspiracy theories
There have been at least 3 presentations of evidence that show the simple NIST/BAZANT model of the collapse of the WTC Towers does not fit with the video data, nor does it obey Newton's Third Law.
We tested two simplified Models of a controlled demolition in WTC1 and compared the Models with the video evidence.
I'd welcome your thoughts and comments.
This sets out crucial questions of science, engineering and forensic evidence which the BBC programme failed to address.
The programme cleverly glossed over awkward questions, so that its audience could retire to bed reassured that 'there's nothing to see here'.
In my view, the programme is a prime example of the Big Lie in operation.
This booklet is all my own work. I am not an engineer or a physicist. I would appreciate any expert advice on improving it.
I have also made available some more Free Bees CD inserts. A design inspired by the Pink Floyd element in the song, plus an insert for sending CDs to DJs.
The server is showing healthy activity. Thank you to all of you for using what I offer.
Just putting a call out to people to help get even a single reference to Lynn Margulis' views on 9/11 onto her wikipedia page. The same guy - Arthur Rubin -- that deletes everything meaningful about challenges to the official story, continually deletes any mention of her views on 9/11 off of her page. He also continually deleted all 9/11 info off of Jesse Ventura's page -- claiming that the news stories were not real! -- but eventually he lost out. Persistance can pay off if the sources exist. Jesse Ventura continued to do interviews in numerous venues and so soon it became undeniable.
If you post anything by Alex Jones, wikipedia generally considers that source to be not reliable and numerous admins will delete it, so you have to post news stories from mainstream sources. One person posted a college newspaper story on Margulis' views, but it referenced the Alex Jones interview so wikipedia admins like Rubin say that that isn't enough and delete it.
It's important to get 9/11 info onto the pages of real scientists, so please help out by getting her info onto there.

Based on evidence of what he believes is unignited thermite particles in debris collected within minutes after the collapse of the World Trade Center's first tower, retired BYU physicist Steven Jones called for a criminal investigation into the destruction of three World Trade Center high rises in a speech at a 9/11 conference in Boston. Public video of his presentation at the Decemeber 15, 2007 event was recently released and can be seen here:
In the first of a series of videos to be released from the Second Annual Boston Tea Party & Conference for 9/11 Truth, Dr. Steven Jones made public for the first time the results of his tests on "red chips" found in dust collected within minutes of the total collapse of the first two World Trade Center Towers.
There are those among us who believe the human spirit is damaged goods. They seek to "replace" it with something they consider superior: science and technology. You see, there is something untamable about humanity, and the "elite" do not like that. Staying easily in power requires ruling over a domesticated population, which is inherently contrary to our nature.
Intellectuals who paint humans as the problem are blind in their own wisdom. By cheerleading the destruction of their own kind, they ask to be robbed of the very things worth living for: the little things--perhaps that many of us neglect to appreciate as we should.
Wickedness and destruction are not the calling of man. Our spirit has the power to overcome all enemies, both domestic and foreign. We possess many flaws, but they will never outweigh the gifts we possess as the stewards of our kind and our world. Because of that, in the endgame, humanity overcomes.
Retired public defender William Veale presents a concise summary of some of the science behind the controlled demolition hypothesis of the complete collapse of WTC buildings 1,2, and 7 on 9/11.
