If ever there should be a conflict between my own perceptions and an "official truth", I shall stay firmly on the side of my perceptions.
That's a pretty strong position to take, implying as it does that you take your senses (and more widely perhaps, your reasoning faculties) to be somehow immune to error. The quoted statement is little more than a personal declaration of a refusal to believe that you could ever misperceive anything.
The next step might be to ask for clarification of my definition of "official truth". The fact that I bracketed it in quotation marks presupposes that there is a potential divergence of views regarding the "official truth" in question. That was to protect me from the hordes of yahoos that would reliably jump on typical rejoinders.
For those who know me in the realm of Volkswagens, you have heard me invite you to diverge from my "official truths" if your personal experience contradicts them. There are one in ten progressive carbs that work adequately, for example. I have never pushed anyone to replace one if they like it.
The next next step might be to ask for clarification of my definition of "perceptions".
I do not accept my immediate sensory perceptions in all cases as they are certainly not immune to error.
Nor do I try to answer anything so complex as 9/11 with just my perceptions or reasoning ability. I had to learn about the melting point of steel, jet fuel burn, mass and inertia of 737s, thermite behavior, local witnesses perceptions, and I have been mulling and asking for over a decade now, and I still do not have fast conclusions or a rational explanation of why any nation's leadership would want something like this to occur.
After sixteen years of mulling and arriving upon perceptions from a multitude of different starting points, and after viewing several videos many times over, and listening to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, I have some perceptions now. AND I have been exposed not to simple truths like the sunrise is actually the Earth rotating from shadow to light, but to complicatedicky explainy rationalizations for why Building Seven collapsed so neatly that defy my understanding of the Laws of Physics.
And I am not so much sticking not to fast and erroneous answers, whc03grady, as honoring my sticky questions thus far not answered. The quoted statement is a personal declaration of refusing to kowtow to others' beliefs, perhaps.
