155. I've been hanging out here for a few years now, mostly in the Dungeon.
I have spent literally hundreds of hours composing carefull, thoughtful posts with the hopes of convincing even one open-minded person that the events of 9/11 can be explained by physics and engineering (which I am actually trained in). I always show all my work, and no one has ever taken any issue with my math.

However, I have completely and utterly failed to convince even one person that airplanes crashed into buildings exactly as they appeared to, and the resulting structural damage and fires were perfectly capable of making the buildings fall down exactly as they did.

I have no interest in repeating it all again with yet another person who has made up his/her mind.

In your simple one-liner ...

"... complete, symmetrical collapse of all three buildings into their footprints at near free-fall speed."

you manage to capture the three most-commonly told untruths of the Movement.

Arguing with the Truth Movement is without a doubt the most colossol waste of time that I have ever undertaken. I peck away here and there for amusement, but believe me brother, you are not going to change your mind based on anything I can tell you.

This is because your obsessive belief is based not on logic and reason, but in a deep emotional hatred of the Bush regime. It is not possible to counter emotion with objectivity, and I won't waste your time or mine trying.
