If you are a 9/11 Troother and you are still breathing, you are living refutation of your own theories about an all-powerful government willing to murder innocent civilians to advance its nefarious purposed.
Note: This fellow admits what I’ve been saying for years, when he talks about the thrill of discovering “a cult of secret knowledge.”
Conspiracy theories — besides being attractive to people with a type of Aspergers, which they can’t really help — are the new Gnosticism. The Church declared the Gnostics heretics for good reason. Indeed, it is called “the sum of all heresies.”
Gnosticism engenders exclusion, encourages elitist, cultlike behavior including shunning, and a notion that certain “others” are unworthy. Clearly this can lead to indifference to suffering or outright violence.
Also note the Troother attachment to rapid fire jargon about “controlled demolitions” and “false flag operations” and so forth; Whenever anyone gets too caught up in the almost ritualistic, hypnotic recitation of their group’s inner-circle jargon, you are in the presence of a Gnostic or at risk of becoming one.
Some people do this as a type of soothing self-medicating when they feel threatened by those outside the group; however within Gnosticism, this habit is a form a “magic” designed to give the reciter power over others:
The second great component of Gnostic thought is magic, properly so called, i.e. the power ex opere operato of weird names, sounds, gestures, and actions, as also the mixture of elements to produce effects totally disproportionate to the cause. These magic formulae, which caused laughter and disgust to outsiders, are not a later and accidental corruption, but an essential part of Gnosticism, for they are found in all forms of Christian Gnosticism and likewise in Mandaeism. No Gnosis was essentially complete without the knowledge of the formulae, which, once pronounced, were the undoing of the higher hostile powers. Magic is the original sin of Gnosticism…
Gnosticism is the opposite of Christianity even though it bears many of its trappings, just as these conspiracy theories bear the trappings of history and science.
