The Troofers Are Out There

CONOR Foley on conspiracy theories and troofer in the Guardian:

The problem with debating “troofers” is that you have to be prepared to work through many levels of assertion and rebuttal. First they will point to some inconsistencies in the reporting of the initial incidents. Then they will raise some technical issues to “prove” that the official account cannot be true: at what temperature does steel melt, for example, or what does a vehicle look like after it has been hit by various types of ordinance? After you have dealt with these, they come back with the killer, “people are lying to us” theory, which it is almost impossible to refute since, by believing the official explanation, you have, by definition, become part of the conspiracy.

Anorak is watching…you…
