Meigs also laments the "argument by anomaly" fallacy on which conspiracy theorists so often rely: They "generally ignore the mass of evidence that supports the mainstream view and focus strictly on tiny anomalies. . . . If researchers can't 'prove' exactly how the building fell, they say, then there is only one other possible conclusion: Someone blew it up."

As the past five years have shown, simply ignoring the conspiracy theorists will not do the trick; on the internet, in particular, they multiply like mosquitoes. Debunking 9/11 Myths does much to drain the swamp and stop the spread of the crazy theories from propagating through the ether.
