with the dust from the collapsed buildings is a reason to think it was?
Were you even aware that the incendiary chemical called nano-thermite (or
thermate) cannot be found anywhere in normal cities including NYC? You
don't think it's a reason when they find tiny spherical globules of melted
steel in all the dust from the towers everywhere in NYC? When melted
steel is impossible from jet fuel or office fires? You don't think that
finding many pools of molten steel in the basements of the 3 towers weeks
after the collapses means anything? When jet fuel and office fires cant't
reach the softening point of steel? None of these things is a reason?
You don't think that huge explosions and rapid fire machine gun explosions
(often used in 'controlled demolition') heard and felt in the basements of
the 3 towers BEFORE they fell means anything? Are you asleep or just

of conspiracy theories of the people he hinks are out to fool him. I'm
not into theories. I'm into facts. If Randi is what he says he is, then
he will appreciate the facts in the 9/11 case. But I'm not into theories

able to determine that the facts that I looked up on my own are "nothing
but delusional misinterpretations of the Truthers"? Especially since I
didn't get them from the truthers! How did you determine that my seeing
videos of molten steel in the basements of the collapsed buildings were
only delusions? How did the truthers delude me when I looked up the
melting point of steel and the maximum temperatures reached in jet fuel
and office fires? Now who's talking 'conspiracy theories'? On top of all
that direct knowledge I went and got, you've finally stumpoed me. What in
hell has Bush/Cheney got to do with facts and evidence of the collapses?
Are you feeling OK? Any problems walking, or balancing?

intellectual? Sounded knowledgeable? Were you aware that the 'controleld
demolition' method was not debunked in the 3 towers case, it was proven.
Any 'debunking was strictly 'theories'. But I'll be happy to look over
any of them you'd like me to, and give you my opinion. Just put it out
there...:) Remember ing of course, I'm only interested in facts not

the news media an hour ahead of time. There was a countdown and large
explosions and the building came down exactly like a controlled demolished
building would into it's own footprint. The key there is that it is
impossible to simply 'pull' a 47 story building on a moment's notice. It
takes weeks and sometimes months to accomplish that. So how did they do
it? How did they go through the whole building setting explosives to
bring down the building in a few hours, when it takes experts weeks and
months? Sheesh! The things people believe!

ain't. I would like evidence or facts relating to the factual discussion
that I'm trying to have on the 3 towers. I looked at the link provided
and found that, like the PopMech attempt at debunking, they cherry picked
a few cases that they could say something negative about and declared that
they had proved something.
An example would be when they spoke of molten pools of steel in the

putting up one link. It appears that you looked only at the things you
believed that supported your own feelings and ignored any evidence to the
contrary as 'conspiracy theories', which is handy when you don't want to
get involved. The reason people shy away from the truth is that they see
a large responsibility if they accept the evidence. It means they have to
do difficult and sometimes unpleasnt things to make it right, and many
don't want to face that sort of effort, they just want to sit in fron of
the TV and be lulled by car commercials.

would think that people working with explosives can't be too crackpottish

not serious? Thousands of lives lost, and it's not serious? If it were
caused by planes hitting buildings and the resultant fires, wouldn't we
want to know how it happened and get into the guts of it and find out what
could be done to save lives the next time Al Qaeda steals planes?
Wouldn't we save the steel and other parts of the buildings to find out
why they came down? It was the law BTW. All those answers haven't been
worked out yet, no matter what you were told. They still can't explain
the falling of building 7. They gave specific reasons for the fall of the
twin towers, but simply left out any explanation for building 7.

the WTC facts, he linked to another group that did it, and they cherry

couldn't, and I put my comments above on their attempt, with an example
and witnesses. Real facts are hard to deal with, even for self-proclaimed
