Need help debunking some conspiracy theories
While I know that this information has been discussed on here ( I just don't have time to search for it today). I have an irritating co-worker that is going on and on about 9/11 being
an inside job and the Colorado shootings being a government set-up so "they" can take our guns away. Now, the Colorado idea is so stupid that I won't even bother to touch that
But, his assertion about 9/11 is simply this. He claims that until someone can explain to him how that "third" building fell without the use of implosive material, he has no respect for
them and that NO ONE has ever been able to explain that.
Normally he is a moron and I just ignore him, but when all this stuff came up about the Colorado shooting being a government job of some sort, I rolled my eyes and shook my head.
To which I had to hear : " Well, considering that you don't believe that 9/11 was an inside job, I would figure that you would have that reaction."
I know that simple common sense and some reasoning would simply tell you that 9/11 was not some sort of conspiracy within our own government (not a fan of the government but
c'mon). But, what are some good arguments to debunk all of this 9/11 inside job bullshit ? I would especially like to "explain" how the third building fell.
(Not that this idiot will probably listen, but it will give me great pleasure in screwing around with him, especially when so many of my co-workers give me the : "What if he is right ?" nonsense).
Can anyone give me some links or quick replies ? I know that there was one magazine like Popular Mechanics, that explained the whole thing and debunked it, but I can't remember
