Is Aphex Twin A 9/11 Truther?

Aphex Twin may be the visionary who changed dance music and who released one of the year’s best albums. But he is also a socially awkward white man who owns lots of computer equipment. And as such, maybe it’s not a surprise that he “absolutely” believes the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. As Gigwise points out, in new Q interview, Richard D. James copped to agreeing with every online conspiracy theory he comes across, partly because he thinks it makes life more fun: “When you follow stuff on the internet about Illuminati, New World Order, aliens, even if none of it’s true, it’s just a thousand times better than any science fiction film that’s ever been written… I do believe pretty much all of it. You can’t only believe things which can be proven. It’s boring. Loads of things are unproven, but it doesn’t stop you believing in them.” Mark Ruffalo agrees. James of course does not have a reputation for being very truthful in interviews, but this a dumb thing to lie about.
