It really isn't and ideally shouldn't be used in the court of law unless you have multiple witnesses.

As an example, have a read of the Allport & Postman study from 1947. Witnesses falsely remember seeing a black man committing the crime because of their subconscious expectation.
There 'are' multiple witnesses! Have you watched it Mark?

I'm not dismissing the video, but simply adding a word of caution in regards to the aspects that are reliant on eye witness testimony. Those multiple witnesses were chosen for the sake of the video and other witnesses were no doubt left out.

I saw the video a few years back and they are very interesting. I remain unsure about 9/11 but I don't believe it was orchestrated by the government. Allowed to happen? I'm open to that idea at least.

Just watch the goddamn video Elly and then tell us what you think!
I wasn't talking about the video - just eyewitness testimony in general.  Smile

On an absolutely separate note, did anyone else know Iain Banks had died?

I never saw or heard Alex Jones!  What I did see, was lots of testimony from lots of witnesses who were in the buildings when the planes hit.......workers and firemen and eye witnesses who were nearby! I also saw press conferences where reasonable questions went unanswered and an enquiry, where the audience, who were presumebly mostly friends and relatives of the deceased, got very upset because the committee who were 'supposedly' carrying out the enquiry, were refusing to ask the 'pertinant' questions. These people had questions of their own, which needed answering!  Perfectly reasonable questions which should have been asked and answered!! They were threatened with eviction for causing a stir!  shocking Now I don't know about you, but if any of mine had been a victim, I would have wanted them answering and though  I don't know you terribly well, I'm guessing you would have too!  I don't know anything about this man Alex Jones, but just because he ranted and raved on the Politics show, or anywhere else, does 'not neccessarily' mean  that he is a loon as Clydey says. Maybe he 'just wants to be heard'!! Just because he 'acts' like a loony, doesn't mean he is one. In fact, he's his own worst enemy.....Maybe thats why he's still alive! Many others of the same ilk, aren't! At least watch the whole video before you decide.....Then, you can at least make up your 'own' mind.......instead  of listening to Clydey!

I already knew about Alex Jones... nothing at all to do with listening to Clydey. We just happen to both be in agreement about this person. Anything he is involved in makes me cringe. I know he is not in the documentary. He was an executive producer.
Here's a little taste of him so you can become better acquainted. Very short.

Indeed.  Had the privilege of hearing him lecture when I was studying.  The Bridge is one of my favourite books.

Watching conspiracy movies that have been heavily debunked won't either.

..... Eye witness testimony is the worst? In a court of law....it's the best! I don't see you as a stupid guy Mark.......Far from it, but have you watched this video? If yes, I want to know your reasoning for that remark!

It is the worst. I've actually studied that phenomenon specifically for my Masters degree. Memory is ridiculously unreliable and open to suggestion.

It carries a lot of weight with jurors because they don't understand how unreliable it is.

What about the countless other witness who totally refute all of these conspiracy theories? What about the science that entirely contradicts the claims of conspiracy theorists?

Yeah, why be skeptical? Just swallow the conspiracy theory whole based on a biased documentary inspired by one of the world's most famous right wing fanatics.
