9/11 conspiracy theories have been around since about 9/12, as people search for “evidence” that this group or that group knew the attack was coming, or was somehow involved in it. Despite what their adherents claim, none of the various theories has held up to scrutiny. But the people behind one of the latest conspiracy theories seemed to have missed their “Conspiracies 101” class the day this was explained: conspiracy theories have to on some level be believable.
According to Dangerous Minds, this theory started on a David Icke conspiracy forum, and somebody decided to run with it. The premise of the theory is that the Freemasons were involved in the 9/11 attacks. “The proof?” The iconic cover from the English group Supertramp’s “Breakfast In America” album. That album was released on March 29, 1979.
The theory goes something like this:
In their early days, Supertramp was backed by a Dutch millionaire named Stanley August Miesegaes. In the photo below, Miesegaes is wearing a pendant that some claim is a Masonic emblem.
The “Breakfast In America” cover features an image of lower Manhattan, with the buildings replaced by various items related to breakfast — salt and pepper shakers, coffee cups, an egg carton, etc. The World Trade Center towers are quite prominent, just as they were in the pre-9/11 NYC skyline. The Statue Of Liberty is a waitress, holding up a glass of orange juice. And the whole scene is being viewed through the window of an airplane.
Somebody discovered that when you look at the album cover in a mirror, the reversed letters “P” and “U” in “Supertramp,” which is written across the top of the cover, looks like a “9” and an “11.” Those letters appear right above the twin towers, with the bottom of the “U” being obscured, making it look more like an “11” than a letter.
And if that’s not good enough for you, the theory goes on to point out that the words “super” and “tramp” are synonyms for “great” and “whore,” a reference to the great whore of Babylon mentioned in the Bible. Oh, and there’s the name of the album — “Breakfast In America.” When did the attacks take place? Yep, right after breakfast on the east coast.
Ah-HA! Those clever Freemasons thought we’d never figure it out, but we CAUGHT them. They were telling us in 1979 that 22 years later the World Trade Center would be destroyed on September 11. According to the nutbags who come up with these ideas, the Masons, and others who supposedly pull the strings behind the scenes, put these subliminal hints in things in order to prepare us for something that they know is coming. How could we have possibly missed it? If only I had looked at the cover of my Supertramp album in the mirror on September 10, 2001, I could have saved over 3,000 lives.
Just like the people who were claiming some 35 years ago that there were subliminal Satanic messages in Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway To Heaven” that you can only hear if you play it backwards (lots of luck doing that if you have it on CD), you listen to this nonsense and come away thinking that these folks have way too much time on their hands.
