I missed it. I didn't know it was on tonight.

A lot of that was difficult to watch. Hearing those bodies hit was almost too much for me.

It's a horrible thing.

It's all very abstract until the people jump from windows and crash violently and loudly below. It's difficult to not feel extreme anger when you hear people crashing down loudly all around knowing that it's the work of cowards and madmen.

I couldn't help but think "there is no god" as the firemen tried to find a way out where they weren't in danger of being crushed by the people who were throwing themselves out of windows over a thousand feet up to escape overwhelming flame and destruction.

All this death over a god that doesn't exist.

saying that God "does not exist" is very prideful. how arrogant to say that u "know" for fact. if u say that u dont believe there is a God, thats one thing. but dont say that there is no God, cause that makes u sound just as ignorant as saying that evolution is impossible.

It's only prideful if you believe in a god that actually gives a shit about what goes on.

There might be some god that created us, but if there is he's gone. Or maybe he was just warming the hearts of those that fell a thousand feet to their death because other people thought they should die for him.

"It is in my plan that you should splatter on a sidewalk 300 yards below you, be comforted."

The EXACT same mentality that these fruitcake cowards used to fly planes into buildings full of innocents. "It is in my plan that you should murder thousands whose loss will be tragic, be comforted."

hmm...a true pessimist...
sounds like me
these are not actions made by God, grover. these are actions made by men. blame the men, not God. the men were obviously influenced by evil, even though they hid behind the shrouds of "faith," which of course is bullsh*t. claiming to do something to serve God is one thing. but doing this by killing thousands of innocents is quite another. so u think that cause a few thousand people were murdered that there is no God? unfortunately, i can think of worse opportunities to turn away from potential faith--the World Wars are much worse...
however, yet again i must stress that these are man-made pains. dont blame God on something that we did to ourselves. u claim indifference, but i see it more as free-will. what do u expect? for Him to suddenly come down and stop the planes from destroying the building??? no. its not that easy. he gave us our own lives to live as we see fit. and that includes all the pains of death, along w/ the joys of love. life isnt easy no matter what. we must take the bad w/ the good...

i dont know what yer beliefs are, so i wont try to judge u. i simply believe that these acts on this country were inspired by evil. through it all, however, i can still hold a strong faith. it is the strong in perserverence(sp?) who survive. dont let the bad times lead u away, for there will always be hope...even when evil comes close to home...

I wanted to see that!!!!!

As for the existence of God!!

could a god 'exist' as something in the world: to exist would mean to be a thing to be limited to have measure... god does not 'exist'

for the most part 'god' is a term that allows people to cope with a world that would turn us all into quivering idiots if we didn't have easy stories through which we explain it, and that would be just the reaction to the full onslought of the wonder at life, then, ontop of that there is the fact of Death and also unavoidable suffering of millions and millions and then throw in malicious cruelty by arrogant god-driven fools and yu want something like a all seeing bearded one in the sky?!?!?!

As for pride: how is saying that god does not exist pridefull: I agree with groverat, doesn't hoping that there is a God that cares for little ole me just a little self centered, selfish even.... and if you say there is then isn't that a little pridefull?!?!?

is it not prideful to think that we know that there is no God? to just declare it as fact? to think we know so much is indeed related to pride...

ON THE CONTRARY, pfflam! By *believing* in God, you are saying to yourself "I don't need to handle this life on my own. I'm going to rely on a higher being for love, support, and compassion when I get none from the world." You give up your selfish ways and realize that you don't have to be all big and bad, dealing with all your problems yourself. It's called humility.

That's what I love so much about God. He doesn't expect us to deal with this life on our own. He KNOWS that we have to go through excruciating events in our lives. He did not create them or cause them to be, but He can certainly be there with us to weather the storm...

...if we CHOOSE to. God gave us free will, and therefore he will never MAKE us believe in Him. We must choose to believe.

I love the long-standing philisophical question: Can God make a rock so heavy that even He cannot lift it? My answer is yes. He has, and it's called Free Will (a.k.a. agency). In a way, I feel it's a test for Himself. It's the perfect scenario.

Think about this: You're God. You've existed forever, you're getting kind of bored, and you want to know how good you really are at being God. How about you create humanity and then give them free will? Then, you have companions in your existance, but the test is yet to come. Can you, as God, give humanity free will, and then promote yourself well enough to have them CHOOSE you? In a way, that's a rock that God cannot lift, and a test to see how good God is at being (cue big echoey voice) Supreme Ruler of the Universe.

Now, my argument is that we have nothing to lose from accepting, loving, and believing in God. He gets what He wants, and we get an easier life. Oh, yeah, well, you have try to give up stuff like sin and such -- but you didn't really need that anyway.

My life is so much more enjoyable now that I have God in it. I don't have to deal with stress on my own, and even when everybody else has "forsaken" me, God never will. He just wants praise and glory (He's very egocentric that way, but hey, He's God).

So back to where I started: Am I self-centered in believing in God? I don't possibly see how I could be.

EDIT FOLLOWS:

To bring all this back to 9/11, I had a very difficult time with God for about two days. I even got to a very brief point where I doubted His existance. I asked myself the same questions many people did: "How could God allow this to happen?" "Where was God when the planes hit the buildings and both towers collapsed?"

He was with those who were dying. He held the hand of the woman who jumped to save herself from burning to death. He saved the life of the Pentagon worker who left to go get coffee just long enough to be spared. He was with all those on Flight 93, who helped force the plane into the ground to save countless others. He was with each and every person all over the world who sat terrified in front of a TV screen as the events of 9/11 unfolded.

I believe in a God who can give us inner peace when there seems to be none. He showed me that peace when I asked him to the day after 9/11. No one else could but Him.

I can't make you believe. You have to choose. I just pray that at some point, you'll realize that apart from all the scientific study that's been commissioned to explain away God, He's still there. He still wants you to know Him. Why not give it a shot. You have nothing to lose but your OWN ego.

They were influenced by their god, not by evil. You don't know what's bullshit and what's not, you're being (what you would call) "prideful".

[quote]so u think that cause a few thousand people were murdered that there is no God?<hr></blockquote>

No, I don't think the god that most people believe in exists. When I said, "all this death for a God that doesn't exist" I meant the people who were motivated to kill thousands. Their god doesn't exist.

Me thinking "there is no God" is just an expression of desparation, not necessarily an expression of my belief or non-belief.

[quote]u claim indifference, but i see it more as free-will.<hr></blockquote>

There is no such thing as free-will. In a world where you believe in god all things are pre-destined. Free-will is an illusion.

[quote]through it all, however, i can still hold a strong faith.<hr></blockquote>

A strong faith that might, say, lead you to fly a plane into a building filled with thousands of those you would call "evil"?

I respect your deep faith. Quite frankly, I admire you for it. I am not of the school of those that say ignorant things like "people need religion as a crutch". To me, people who say that are using their own belief systems as a crutch.

For all those of you who'd like to explain away God, think of it this way: You'd better hope you're right.

If I'm wrong and there really ISN'T a God, then I...spent a lot of time believing.

If I'm RIGHT and there really IS a God, you all will have a lot of 'splaining to do.

no. u got it all wrong. God gave us free will. we either choose to accept him, or we choose the world. the choice that he gave us is what determines our outcome. we choose our own path. dont say that things are pre-destined just cause we believe in God. the whole basis of the Christian faith is that we choose to follow right or wrong.

the stupidity of that comment should get no response...but i will still give one. yet again, it was the corruption of the faith, not the faith itself that led those men to murder. no where in the muslim faith does it say that murder is EVER justified. but yes, if u are a follower of satan, then sure, a strong faith would lead to those evil actions.

Stop bickering.

I just watched it. Battalion Chief Pfeiffer was something else...he didn't make a single flawed decision and got all of his men out.

I had my doubts about the documentary, but definitely not after watching it. It's spooky how dramatic it was. The entire thing could have been out of a Hollywood script, but it was real.

It's incredible how everything fell into place, the innocent documentary, the gas leak that sent them out just a few blocks from the WTC just before they caught the first crash on camera. The second crash, the two collapses...the trickling in of all the guys from Engine 7, Ladder 1 back at the station, amazed they all made it out.

I'm in disbelief.

People should consider that the media has only up to now given us a fairly sugar coated version of the goings on at ground zero. I remember reading about a victums bodies being recovered that have the skin around their fingernails missing (trying to dig out). I also read about one that apparantly had partial digested food in his stomach and the rest of his snack found in his hand (might have lived long enough to get hungry and eat part of a snack). Real sad and morbid stuff. Millions of tales of sadness surround this event.

I see a few things in this thread that strike me odd.

First, why does everyone call these terrorists cowards? A coward would never go on a suicide mission! They made the ultimate sacrifice for their cause! As stupid and evil as their cause is.

The whole existance/nonexistance of God argument is only hot wind at best. Their is no measurable evidence to prove or disprove his/her/its existance. Only anecdotal and subjective experience. Everything else is speculative. So usually these types of arguments goes to the best arguer. Really religion (or lack of religion) is a matter of personal choice. It is understandable that everyone wants to share their beleifs, but to push it as fact is not defendable.
post #22 of 92
They are cowards for being duped into going on such a suicide mission. They are cowards for not trying harder to find "another way" to achieve any worthy goals they might have aimed for.

Most of the time you see militant terrorists behind masks and identity obscuring bandanas. Why do you think they wear those?

Here's the CBS section on the documentary. Doesn't say when it will be re-aired or if it may be on video.

<a href="http://www.cbs.com/primetime/9_11/" target="_blank">http://www.cbs.com/primetime/9_11/</a>

I watched it and was impressed with the work Jules and Gedeon Naudet did. They really became close to the firemen they were documenting so they were able to follow them anywhere. Some scenes were almost sureal. Like this scene with the rookie and the WTC behind them...the night before the attacks. sorry if the image is blocked



Another scene that was unsetttling to watch were the faces of the firemen within the lobby...truly scared and almost helpless. The chaplin muttering prayers (he was later killed by falling debri). I didn't know that human bodies landed with such violent force as that...

And the collapse of the towers were terrifying. After the first tower collapsed and they were trying to find a safe way out...I still can't believe that it didn't cross their minds that those fully fueled planes would cause a structural melt down and collapse...

Only thing that bothered me was De Niro's narraration...you could tell he was reading a teleprompter. But I guess he's not experienced with this? I know he cares and all, being a New York native. He has his film center and restaurants near there too.

I hope this documentary will be released to schools and worldwide. Every human should see this, get an understanding that this is how it happened and how evil this act was.

Ironic that this documentary was done by two French men?

I don't think so. They were very impartial (as most documentary filmakers should be). At first they both seemed overwhelmed by the whole situation. But they kept on going and filmed what they saw. Each not knowing whether the other brother survived or not that day.

Human catastophy and tragedy I guess have a way with doing that to people. All politics, race, creed and color vanish and human survival (and saving others) kicks in...

These 2 french men live in New York anyway since 1989, when they did this job, they did not think one second of the money they can make, nor the fact that they may die, they where just in action and where professionals filming a scoop. I think that this two brothers are americans lovers, in the contrary they won't live in new york like 100 000 others french people.

For the money they make, did you ask the same question if they where true americans reporter ? or greed is just a french speciality ?.

The only irony, is that the fact that 2 french native men did the jobe prove that France is a non homogeneous countrie with man loving US, and some who won't : the eurotrash (trash if you call trash, people who don't share your opinions)

I wouldn't really care who made the documentary, I think the general upset would paying an absurd amount of money that the television industry tends to do for a documentary on something that moved the country so much.

I could really care less about their nationality, but I think if they were Americans that made the documentary, they'd of probably been a bit greedier.

I ear that too, in french TV, where the two journalist where interwieved, i just see some higllights of this documentary. One of the reporter, say that he was filming in a reflex of self-protection : when you are scared, the best way to keep cool blooded is to do your job. They said that (normally) the documentary will be shown at the first anniversary of the 11 september. I will look it , for the memory of the deads and the wounded.

As long as they're giving a good chunk of it to charity it's fine. But they didn't have the intentions of making a documentary on the worst terrorist attack on the United States. They were making a documentary on firefighters, probably on a grant. So they got lucky with the footage they shot. I just think that had they been Americans, they would have pocketed more money than is going to charity.

I've done Documentary Photography for a long time, some on grants, some during my time at art school, most of it self funded. Were I in their Reeboks, I'd give most of it to charity. Again, I don't know the specifics, but the basis of my post was that I think an American duo would have kept more money.

They have just lit up the memorial lights...two columns of blue white lights where the two towers stood. It will be lit every evening for a month...

I forgot how long the two French men had lived in America. There was an article on them last month in Vanity Fair. Might re-read that. Truly a great job...considering the chaos they witnessed and experienced.
