Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You are aware, JD, that recently someone posted a diary on DKos saying "let's kick this 9/11 conspiracy theory aruond a bit" and got such a beating in the comments that (s)he deleted their original diary and posted anotehr one apologizing for the first one.

Physics, you say?

I tried to state that I do not subscibe to such theories, I still do not.  Nevertheless, I tried to moderate this one argument in the hopes that someone could discredit the arguments set forth.  Unfortunately, some believe that I am spewing this theory forth, which I am not.  I was just curious as to the arguments for and against and if anyone would have an intelligent stand pro or con as this individual put forth an outlandish theory but backed it up with science.  This is what made it unusual, especially if it is to be presented in a peer-reviewed journal.  In my field, which is dog-eat-dog, you better be able to back up your arguments, so his actually surprised me.  So easy to be misunderstood on the internet.

See? You're beginning to apologize just in the same way as the unfortunate DKos diarist felt compelled to (they didn't subscribe to the theory either).

Definately not apologizing for my diary, just trying to moderate opposing views.  Like I said, you got me thinking - which is a good thing for me.

I'm just being facetious to prod you a little. I apologize.

No need to apologize, I didn't see it that way at all.  Others won't add anything substantial to debunk the theory.  Still hoping though, I love controversy!  As long as it's given in a reasoned argument, I've studied too much Kant and Hegel to settle for less.
