Miracles and the Re-framed 9/11 Litmus Test

In some of my skirmishes with 9/11 coincidence theorists (who believe that 9/11 was just one big, rinky-dinky, coincidence), I'd sometimes tease them about their Christian faith that they often wore on their sleeves as a shield along with the American flag as their cape in their self-righteous super (in)human & fervently patriotic defense of the indefensible, like torture, rendition, write-off of habeas corpus, predator drones, war profiteering, etc.

I'd inform them that if they truly believed and supported the Bush Administration's official 9/11 version, why had they not converted to Islam for the many wonders and miracles of Allah on 9/11 that 19 Muslim hijackers accomplished, even the bending of Allah's laws of conservation of energy & momentum in the incredible gravitational acceleration observed in the destruction of 3 buildings and the supposed jet fuel & office furniture fires that burned at steel melting temperatures for weeks under the piles of rubble without the aid of oxygen from the air?

Ironic, then, not only that these 9/11 coincidence theorists did not convert to Islam in awe of these Allah wrought miracles but also that the evil spawns of 9/11 -- like wars in Afghanistan and Iraq -- persecuted Muslims and had undercurrents of a holy war of the world's great religions.

I write the above somewhat with tongue-in-cheek and certainly meaning no disrespect against Islam (or Christianity) but with heaping disrespect against hypocracy of those who don't practice what they preach in the religious realm and more importantly in the scientific realm.

The re-framed 9/11 Litmus Test has us view the 9/11 events with the lens of math, physics, and science to determine more accurate and more plausible explanations. Or as the case of the recent additions to this series bring to light, to use science to refute what we were told to open our minds to other alternatves.

Dr. David Ray Griffin 's article "Left-Leaning Despisers of the 9/11 Truth Movement: Do You Really Believe in Miracles?" is well researched and annotated to speak for and support itself.

The articles about the improbable speeds of the 9/11 aircraft are noteworthy for the implications not explicitly mentioned therein, but for re-animating in my mind two theories (not necessarily mutually exclusive) that 9/11 deniers feverishly worked to discredit by any means possible.

#1: The commercial aircraft that gave the world the "this could have been you on that plane" shock-&-awe were swapped mid-flight with planes that not only could achieve those speeds but also might have had some extra "punch" in the form of explosive payloads. The multiple war games of the day assisted this swap through the insertion & deletion of radar blips into air traffic controllers' equipment. Swapped planes could then explain (possibly) cellphone calls if the commercial aircraft were already landed at the time.

#2: I hesitate to bring this up due to my own fence-sitting on the matter, but falsified radar blips traveling at excessive speeds would dovetail nicely with the (supposedly debunked) "no plane" (or "no commercial planes") theories (Google: "September Clues") whereby computer generated images (CGI) were foisted on the public through the media. Of the 9 or so segments in S.Clues, only 2 or 3 of them as I recall had plausible debunking; the others still held water. It should be noted that on the day of 9/11 in the first several hours, only 1 clip of the 2nd airplane was shown over and over (with an excessively tall & annoying bottom-of-screen banner), which gave sufficient time for subsequent footage to be found and CGI tweaked. Over the course of the next few days the other clips appear of the 2nd plane & 1 clip of the first. Of the S.Clues still of value in my books:
  • the speed with which the official govt version was planted and re-enforced in the media;

  • the supposedly different network TV views as per surrounding buildings & distant bridges that had essentially the same WTC tower perspective;

  • the very lucky and coincidental zoom-in just before the 2nd plane strike, yet upon calculation of the speed and playback in reverse to the starting zoom-out position does not show the plane and it should have;

  • the footage from the local news helicopter that does not show the 2nd plane when it should have and doesn't get a reaction from the reporter or pilot in the helicopter until after the fireball explosion is seen;

  • several audio-only recordings that did not catch the very loud noise of a jet flying at excessive speeds at a low altitude but did record the "plop" of the impact & fireball.

As per #1, if the planes were swapped with ones that could produce the excessive speeds that the commercial aircraft were incapable of and that radar documented, this scenario could benefit from CGI to mask the real planes (and/or missiles) with the image of a commercial aircraft.

I honestly do not know and would be content for this wild-ass speculation to be proven wrong. 9/11 being an inside job does not live or die with the CGI/no-planer theories being true or plane swaps being true. Free-fall in the destruction of the buildings already makes that case, along with all of the other so-called miracles given in Dr. David Ray Griffin's articles.
