I actually thought Rosie had a degree in physics - VIDEO
Like many of you, I always assumed that Rosie O'Donnell had a masters in physics. I mean, why else would she be spouting off on national television that the WTC 7 was probably destroyed by a controlled detonation?
I actually make it a point to refer to Rosie's wisdom on every question I have in life. Right now I have a cold cheese sandwich sitting in my kitchen, but I'm not going to grill it until I find out from Rosie for certain that heat will melt cheese. She seems to have an understanding of these things my simple mind can't quite grasp.
To be honest, I'm less concerned with Rosie's ignorant statement and more concerned with the audience members who applauded her after she said it (see the clip below). The View is based on the idea of people yakking first and thinking later, but it does concern me that people would accept what she said with blind faith.
I'm not an expert on physics, and the fact that you're currently reading a television blog and not a scientific journal should prove that. However, all of us have to accept what experts tell us to some degree: if I go to a doctor, I have to accept he knows what he's talking about. Of course, opinions may vary from one doctor (or any other expert) to another, and the more one educates themselves on a subject, the better. At this point, however, I think every theory that assumes WTC 7 was brought down by explosives has been sufficiently disproved in the scientific realm, and not just by one rogue scientist, but by many. This is Rosie versus overall scientific consensus, and it seems fairly clear to me where to place my trust.
