Yeah, he wasn't thinking at all. Being a well known athlete, keep that stuff to yourself.
There are always people with crazy views and that includes athletes. Think about how something like 30% of Republicans STILL think Obama wasn't born in the U.S. Or all of the truthers that think 9-11 was an inside job. And now the deathers... who don't believe Osama Bin Laden is dead. Craziness.
I don't agree with what he said, but that doesn't make his statements stupid; as a matter of fact, if you think (as he apparently wants people to do) about his exact quotes, they do make sense.
It's not as if he's supporting Osama Bin Laden.
I don't understand why this keeps coming up about 9/11 and the conspiracy theories. Why is it so hard to believe that two identical towers rammed with two identical planes that burned in jet fuel for all most two hours, eventually collapsed under their own weight?
oh, I do think it is stupid, especially considering why he is saying what he is saying... religion and the misguided belief that the creator will judge him for what he has done. But I digress, this is a whole other argument.
His argument is based on a religious mindset.
At least he's not a hypocrite, which is more than I can say for Chris Coghlan; it was surprising to see Coghlan's "I'm sure it's nice to see a little bit of justice has come" quote in the papers, considering how religious he is (at least supposedly is).
Quite frankly, I'm glad he's dead and I hope he burns in hell; however, if you're putting yourself out there as the super innocent religious man, it's hypocritical to be celebrating any man's death.
This is the dumbest tweet: "What kind of person celebrates death? It's amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We've only heard one side..."
Bin Laden has been telling his side for a very long time, and he has admitted/taken responsibility for many attacks which have cost many [civilian] lives.
"We'll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style."
Even if this was planned by George W. rolleyes, there's no doubt it was done with an airplane. We all watched it happen. I'm willing to bet their have been many engineers who've analyzed it. Is he suggesting there was also some sort of other bomb or something that we didn't see? That's pretty out there.
The rest of the tweets make sense, and are pretty coherent statements, putting aside whether you believe in God, which isn't really germane to this analysis.
Certain tweets are stupid, but as you said, some of the others make sense, based on one's beliefs.
All in all, I think he's trying to be objective with his thoughts, although I'd say some of his thoughts certainly show ignorance and stupidity.
Drunk tweeting - never a good idea.
