Book Review: Debunking 9/11 Myths: An In-depth investigation by Popular Mechanics

Foreward and afterward by James B. Meigs, Hearst Books, New York, 2011.  This is a very well researched and interesting book.  First off, who knew there were so many different conspiracy theories.  There is even a BYU physics professor Steven E. Jones, who is part of those making 9/11 accusations, and is convinces the World Trade Center had to be brought down by explosives.    Other theories is that there was a missile fired at the World Trade Center.  That the plane was a cargo plane.  That the destruction of building 7 must have been planted explosives.  That the pentagon was hit by a missile as well.  That there was a big cover-up with the passengers of all the planes being taken elsewhere.  And on and on.  There is an afterward written by James Meigs at the end, which explains the process of conspiracy theorists.  My only distaste form the book, is his comparison of conspiracy theorists to creationist.  I believe in creation, and feel there is as much evidence there as supporting evolution.  This book adequately debunks the myths surrounding 9/11.
