As I said, go read the threads.

Or actually, as you started this by accusing me, please show how I've not listened to arguments and have just "dismissed" them.

Go browse a few of the old 9/11 threads in here. What happens isn't that arguments get dismissed. What's more common is that the problems and errors in them are pointed out, and the truther just...
