"This documentary is clearly part of the cover-up," he says.

Hicks takes issue with everything from the way the documentary seemed to brush off Truthers as being "sick, stupid and psychologically damaged because we need the truth," he says, to its choice of scientific experts.

Not suprisingly, his biggest criticism was with the way the experiments were conducted.

"It's pseudo-science," Hicks says. "Any high school student would tell you, to do experiments in New Mexico [where much of the pyrotechnic tests were conducted] with different kinds of materials is a joke."

The explosives planted in the WTC argument? The TV special tested with only regular thermite (a pyrotechnic compound) and not "super thermite" as Truthers believe was the culprit.

"That's like saying, 'We want to do an experiment with whiskey, but we're going to use beer instead," Hicks says.

While the reason for this is explained in the documentary -- there's a question as to super thermite's actual existence -- executive producer Erik Nelson says he'd been dealing with the debunking debunkers for a while now.

Nelson, who says he "didn't have a dog in this hunt," insists that the goal of "9/11: Science and Conspiracy" wasn't to debunk Truthers, sway any minds or hide contrary test results.

The producer concedes he would've loved it if the Truther theories were proven correct.

"Our ratings would've gone through the roof!" he says.
