Over 1,000 architects and engineers have signed the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth‘s petition demanding a real investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.
That’s right, over 1,000 architects and engineers have gone on record saying the official story about the collapse of the Twin Towers and the WTC7 is not believable and think a new investigation is warranted. They think that the official theory is an extraordinarily unrealistic hypothesis and that the evidence does not support it. They have focused a significant amount of attention on WTC7 because it is the ONLY skyscraper in the history of the world to ever collapse just from fire.
If you visit the home page of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, the evidence against the official theory on WTC7’s collapse is plainly listed, including the following:
WTC Building #7, a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane, exhibits all the characteristics of classic controlled demolition with explosives: (and some non-standard characteristics)
Rapid onset of “collapse”
Sounds of explosions at ground floor – a full second prior to collapse
Symmetrical “collapse” – through the path of greatest resistance – at free-fall acceleration
Imploded, collapsing completely, and landed mostly in its own footprint
Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic dust clouds
Several tons of molten metal reported by numerous highly-qualified witnesses
Chemical signature of Thermite (high tech incendiary) found in solidified molten metal, and dust samples by physics professor Steven Jones, PhD.
FEMA finds rapid oxidation and intergranular melting on structural steel samples
Expert corroboration from the top European Controlled Demolition professional
10.Fore-knowledge of “collapse” by media, NYPD, FDNY
And exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire, i.e.
Slow onset with large visible deformations
Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, to the side most damaged by the fires)
Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel
High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never “collapsed”.
Number 1, the rapid onset of collapse, is especially important. The official theory, by NIST, concluded that one internal column collapsed completely that in turn pulled a column next to it, which in turn pulled a column next to it, etc., etc., until all 80+ columns came down. Yet, the videos of WTC7 collapsing show the entire building in free fall. The government even admitted after the fact, and in complete opposite of the NIST’s chain-reaction theory of collapse, that WTC7 was in free fall for many seconds. So, by admitting to the free fall of WTC7, the government contradicted their own theory of collapse.
Lets consider the NIST’s absurd theory that the intiating event for the WTC7’s collapse is the top to bottom collapse of just one internal, core column – column 79. This core column was massive, and interconnected to its neighboring columns on all four sides (on all 47 floors). So the failing beam is just one of 188 beams connecting column 79 to the columns on each side of it. Yet, the failure of just one beam caused the structural failure of all of the other 187 beams and caused column 79 to break apart. No wonder people call the NIST theory scientific fraud.
A single horizontal beam between columns doesn’t support a column, at least not to any significant degree. It makes about as much sense as saying a tree branch supports a tree trunk. Besides, if a massive core column failed because suddenly it had beams connecting on only 3 sides (on just one or even a few floors) then why didn’t the perimeter columns collapse years ago since they always had interconnecting beams on just three sides (because a perimeter beam can’t have another column outside of it and so is interconnected on just three sides)?
Discovering the truth about 9/11 and the collapse of the WTC buildings is a fascinating journey, and one that the media always ignores. I implore everyone to learn by visiting Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, by reading any book by David Ray Griffin and by studying any other valuable research. As a genius once said, “knowledge is good.”
