I have to admit to a significant amount of scientific ignorance right up front here. However, when I watch a video, such as those linked in the article, of a credentialed scientist, discussing details of his analysis, I have NO IDEA how to discern, personally, whether he is an insane crackpot, or whether he is saying something which makes as much real sense as it SEEMS to make. I find myself thinking "how am I ever going to decide the ultimate truth of this issue when entire groups of highly credentialed scientists look at the same data set and come to opposite conclusions?".

What is perhaps most fascinating to me is that the most high-profile denouncers of the 9/11 "truth" movement, people like Noam Chomsky and perhaps Matt Taibi, are essentially responding with nothing more substantive than arguments from personal incredulity, hardly the backbone of scientific reasoning!
