Re: How can you tell?
It seems to me that there is no essential difference in the process that people use to form their opinions only a critical difference in the threshold at which they accept something as fact.
For conspiracy theorists, that threshold seems very, very low to non-existent for things that they want to be true.
Can you imagine the work it would take to fake the impact? It would be much easier just to crash the damn plane into the Pentagon.
