I wanted to know what you all thought of the documentary/video "An Unknown Compelling Force". I watched it but I cant find much commentary on it in this forum.

Thanks.

Fantastic. I liked how they followed the evidence and came up with the natural conclusion. Speaking to homicide detectives to get their perspective was great. Convinced me that it wasn't all that complicated. They were murdered. Period.

Hi, Jay, I posted the same question but didn't see yours first. I thought the doc was fantastic. Thorough and conclusive for me. It's partly what convinced me that what happened here isn't much of a mystery, other than the who/why. It proved the 'how' to me. What about youL?

Logical and truthful are not the same thing, yes?

Correct. Using logic can sometimes lead to truth, no? Not always but I think logic is a good place to start.

Good point Elizabeth. Of course, where we all struggle is less with the logic and more with the truth. Out of the hundreds of premises, mine included, most are false. Therefore, divining motivations and stimulation from the beginning of the tragic event to the end is frustrating. Similarly working backward in time from discovery to the initial cause hasn't worked to everyone's satisfaction. If the generally accepted explanations, transient phenomena such as wind and weather and the attendant ground effects has logic and the ring of truth. The mystery will never be definitively solved because transient phenomena are just that, transient. What are your thoughts?

I completely agree and I love your terminology of 'transient phenomena." In ever-changing natural elements, especially in that terrain, there are just so many variables at play. You mentioned that of the hundred premises, they are all false, including yours. I'm so curious as to what your premise is. I'd love to hear it!!
