It astounds me that people think that the conspirators can fabricate dozen of eye-witness accounts but can't fake better security footage. I've seen teenagers fake authentic looking film of alien invasion, but the American government couldn't do better than a white blur?
It seems like conspiracy theorists only demand evidence from authority figures - and not from anyone else. If they don't get 'enough' evidence, they start making completely unevidenced claims about planes 'disappearing' and hundreds of people being silenced. I understand people wanting to get as much evidence as possible - but why then abandon evidence gathering when positing their alternative hypothesises?
They appear to consider a lack of evidence of "Event A" is automatically evidence of "Event B". It reminds me of IDists thinking that disproving evolution provides evidence of Intelligent Design.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Instead, all they have is a lack of mundane evidence - but, for some strange reason, that is enough for them.
