Why can’t Vaken.se be found on Wikipedia?
The moderators at Wikipedia do not think that Vaken.se is relevant or big enough to be published on Wikipedia.

How come Vaken.se focuses a lot on the September 11th 2001 attacks?
Many people who are involved with Vaken.se and the truth movement want a new independent scientific investigation into the attacks surrounding September 11th 2001. The official investigation has not be able to satisfactory tell us what really happened on that day and raises more questions and gives very few answers. There are currently over 2200+ architects and engineers demanding a new independent scientific investigation into the collapses of the towers WTC1, WTC2 and WTC7. We support Architects & Engineers For 911 Truth (ae911truth.org). Here is a version of our latest flyer on 911-information.
Do you believe in the scientific method?
Yes, we do. The scientific method of being able to tell if something is true or false is very important. Unfortunately scientific data is some time attacked and not taken up to review due to consensus trance. The problem is NOT the scientific method but the hierarchical system that by selction lets certain information thru and other information is neglected and inaccessible. For example 2200+ architects and engineers in the organization ”Architects and Engineers For 911 Truth” are working towards a new investigation surrounding the attacks on the 11th of September 2001, but this is not debated and examined but instead scientific information is met by slander, mockery, personal attacks and character assassination.
Why does your forum contain a lot of so called ”conspiracy theory” threads?
The forum on Vaken.se is public. Therefor anyone can publish and discuss anything they wish as long as it’s consitent with the forum rules. Vaken.se does not claim responsability for what other people express or publish on the forum. It’s important to not mix the information found on the forum with the rest of Vaken.se. It’s also important to not supress or immediatly dismiss information because of ruling consensus belief, but let new information flow freely so that it can be scrutinized without restrictions.
