Septem 11, 2001 is a horrifying day that shook America to the core, perhaps it changed the world. Even After 20 years, the effect of this day can be seen in your daily life. As we already know some interesting theories existed on September 11, 2001. So here are the 7 most common conspiracy theories hopefully forever. There are two key features to a conspiracy theory “they are done in secret” and “they are done in some form of malevolence” against the common good in this case. So notice that it is an explanation of past events and therefore it does not necessarily mean that it is true or false it’s just offering an explanation typically conspiracy theory is in contrast to the popular explanation so there is an official story presented in each one of these conspiracy theory cases. But the conspiracy theory often operates as an alternative to that official story.

9/11 Conspiracy Theories
Here are the most common seven 9/11 conspiracy theories.
1. Jet Fuel can’t melt steel beams
Jet fuel cannot melt steel beams, jet fuel burns up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit while steel melts at around 2500 degrees. However, steel does begin to lose strength at around 600 degrees Fahrenheit, and with the weight above the impact paint on the North Tower similar to that of the Titanic the weakened steel simply could not hold and the tower collapsed.
2. Controlled Explosions
When the towers collapsed many commented that the destruction looked similar to that of controlled demolition, this added fuel to many conspiracy theories. However, modeling has proved this inaccurate research by pursue university and Dr. Frank Greening showed that with the fuel spread an impact and with the weight transfer from the building above the impact site the building would indeed fall almost entirely vertically.
3. World Trade Center 7 collapse was an inside Job
Alongside the North and the South Towers, WTC 7 was also destroyed at 9:11. It took around 7 hours for the building to collapse. However, the national institutes of standards and technology have supported the theory that WTC7 was more damaged by falling debris than previously estimated, WTC7 may have withstood the debris or the fire. But both factors combine with the unusual design brought down the building.
4. The Pentagon was hit by a Missile
Despite dozens of witnesses who watched the plane fly into the side of the pentagon, many conspiracy theorists believe it was instead a missile that caused the damage. When the planer hit the pentagon’s exterior wall it created a hole approximately 75 feet wide.
So why wasn’t the hole 125 feet wide the same as the plane’s wingspan? The answer is pretty simple, One wing hit the ground on approach and the second was sheared off by the force of the impact leaving just the fuselage to cause damage.
5. Flight United 93 was shot down
“I’m on a plane it’s been hijacked I’m on the plane I’m calling from the plane I want to tell you I love you please tell my children that I love them very much and I’m so sorry babe um I don’t know what to say. I hope to be able to see your face again baby I love you”.
The fourth and final plane to be hijacked was believed to be targeting Washington DC instead it crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. After the plane was hijacked the crew and passengers staged a revolt either forcing the plane into the ground themselves or forcing the hijackers to do so but some believe the flight was instead shot down by the US Military.
This Conspiracy Theory is born out of some truth the order was given by President Dick Cheney for the plane to be shot down. However, the scrambled jets were never made in time and we know the plane was not shot down because the scrambled jets weren’t armed and instead actually planned to ram the plane but before they got the chance to do so the passengers took matters into their own hands.
6. No Jews were killed in the attacks because they were forewarned
Now, this assertion originated in the Middle East almost immediately after the attacks, but it didn’t receive worldwide attention until August 2010, went the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, publically stated that “no Zionists were killed in the attacks since one day earlier they were told not go to their workplace”, and that “the attack deliberately created and prepared public opinion so that everyone considered an attack on Afghanistan and Iraq.”
Now again, if this assertion is true, then it’s extremely suspicious, but, again it’s not, and because of this it’s one of the most contemptible and outright insulting conspiracy arguments ever heard. In actuality, the number of Jews who died during the attacks is estimated to be between 270 and 400, a number that closely reflects the percentage of Jews working in the area at that time.
7. The Government of the United States closely enquired the Military even though the Government already knew about the Attacks
It is a general belief that North American Aerospace Defense Command NORAD intentionally didn’t allow to send their fighter jets and sent hijacked planes to finish their targets. As all theorists believe that the Government of America already knew about the attack and they supported the attack. So that is the reason they failed to stop the attacks even though they had a strong Air Force.
Why should they support such a thing? According to Conspiracy theorists, The Government needs to explain the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq to protect its oil interests.
So, these are the 7 main 9/11 Conspiracy Theories that we have briefly explained. Even though it is an attack in the past 20 years it remains effective in our present. It is important to note that there is no credible evidence to support any of these theories. I hope you got the information that you need. Thanks
