    Are you happy Spam and Scott. You asked your questions, which is fine, and they have been answered/explained over and over again by real scientists.

    Now can we get on to the real issues?

    OK, so you have read the "official 9/11 report" and you are satisfied that it was a proper use of your tax dollars to fund it, and you have no problem with the way WTC7 fell, and the seriously strange nature of the "FLT77 hitting the PENTAGON" fiasco .....

    I guess we just have to agree to dissagree .....

    and as we all know
    9/11 was an inside job!

    All of this, including the picture next to your name is addressed somewhere in those links.

    ... and move on to actual issues.

    The problem is that a lot of us don't find those explanations conclusive, USMC.

    Fair enough. I don't see how a lot of them could get any more scientifically conclusive, but that's my personal opinion.

    I'll assume for a second that you actually did read a few of these links -- I personally believe that you went into reading the explanations with an extremely closed mind (i.e. your mind was already made up) and so you weren't even considering the arguments put forth.

    To me, scientific evidence and proof is a lot more convincing then simply asking questions and stringing together a couple of odd coincidences. There were a lot of firsts and unprecedented events that day. Never before had a 767 loaded with jet fuel launched full speed into skyriser, so of course there were some surprising outcomes.

    "NIST’s final report stated that of the steel available to it for examination, "only three columns had evidence that the steel reached temperatures above 250 degrees Celsius" (482 degrees Fahrenheit). The self-cleaning ovens in our home kitchens reach temperatures higher than this, and the ovens do not melt or deform."

    I am having big time technical trouble with this site now, s-l-o-w loading.

    would you say you read Dr Steven Jones synopsis with exactly the same frame of mind?

    i don't care much for arguing about the towers. neither side is convincing enough for me (demolition/conspiracy vs burning jet fuel weakened steel/conspiracy). it all distracts from the real issues of 9/11 i.e
    - Cheney's shoot down/non shootdown orders
    - Mineta's 911 commission testimony being omitted from the report.

    Secretary Mineta: “During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President…the plane is 50 miles out…the plane is 30 miles out….and when it got down to the plane is 10 miles out, the young man also said to the vice president “do the orders still stand?” And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said “Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary!??”

    - Norad
    - Able Danger
    - Vigilant Guardian
    - PDB "Bin Laden determined to attack US"
    - stock dumps and Foreknowledge throughout CIA, FBI, Pakistani ISS, Israeli Mosad
    - President's utter failure to defend his country.

    Im tired of my scientist vs your scientist debates.

    I tried. I don't deny that there are a lot of unanswered questions -- but questions alone are not enough to convince me that our government plotted this attack.

    Again, I don't have all the answers -- there are perfectly reasonable explanations for these in some of those sources I posted. Neither of us were there...

    i don't think our gov't plotted 9/11. I do however, have strong feelings towards the possibility (supported by evidence AND reason) that they were aware of it, allowed it, and embellished it for political reasons.

    i skimmed over all those links, i couldn't find anything that discussed any facts on the following
    - Molten steel found weeks later under the rubble of the WTC
    - any reference to dozens of witness accounts within the WTC of what sounded like explosions in the lower levels of the WTC
    - Able Danger/Atta/Weldon
    - Norad
    - NYFD tapes
    - 9/11 testimony stricken from the record
    - foreknowledge

    what i see is weak disinformation tactics, taking fringe theories that are easy to poke holes in while largely ignoring the bigger picture. The 9/11 commission report, as well as the FEMA and NIST reports on 9/11 are full of just as many if not more holes than even the most far our "conspiracy" theories.

    If you don't see any facts in what I've posted then there is no point to further arguing this point with you, because there is nothing that will ever convince you.

    I guess you just need a cause to join or else you feel small and irrelevant...
