Apparently some BYU Professor has published an article suggesting that the World Trade Center was brought down by explosive devices, presumably planted by some outside entity, perhaps even by >hushed whisper fraught with unstated menace< the government >/hushed whisper fraught with unstated menace< . John Fowles has posted about it here and Clark Goble followed it up here. As a connoisseur of out-of-control threads, I’d have to give the ensuing discussion at least a B, probably even a B+.
As it turns out, I don’t believe in big, government conspiracies, or big, NGO conspiracies either. Why? Well, lets let a commenter on one of Clark Goble’s threads explain:
having seen people try to do thing in concert, without concern for secrecy, makes me doubt that anybody could act in concert in secret, keep it a secret, and actually bring about the desired result
Exactly. Take church work for instance–until you try and coordinate a church activity, you haven’t lived.
Yet the Book of Mormon clearly teaches that “secret combinations” had a real effect on undermining Nephite society. These weren’t just open robber bands, either. They look, smell, and quack like what we’d call conspiracies.
How to explain the contradiction? The Church’s peculiar combination of a lay, revolving ministry and an underpaid bureacracy, I suggest, deliberately teaches us a false lesson about the competence of large organizations. It’s all part of the plot.
Hey, knuckleheads, that was my neighbor you just shot, not me. My office has my name on the door–can’t you read?
if you want to talk 9/11 Conspiracy Theories, I have conveniently given you a link to Clark Goble’s threads. Don’t comment here. It’s comment deletion season, and I have a license.
