Architects and Engineers are trained to design buildings that function well and withstand potentially destructive forces. However, the 3 high-rise buildings at the World Trade Center which "collapsed" on 9/11 (the Twin Towers plus WTC Building #7) presented us with a body of evidence (i.e.controlled demolition) that was clearly outside the scope of our training and experience.
They actually admitted that the collapse of the buildings was out side their scope of expertise!
An object that is in motion will not change its velocity unless a force acts upon it.
highly questionable science
“We need to be here with the board members of the American Institute of Architects so that they cannot ignore this evidence any longer,” Gage said.

You are certainly entitled, just like Samkent, to belittle Richard Gage. When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. Yes, I get it. However, slander only reveals the complete weakness of yours and Sam's chosen position, defending an indefensible lie.
Why on earth should anyone pay attention to your bad-mouthing Richard Gage? It's obvious what's going on.
As for the nuclear theory, it is obvious. Looking at any and all pictures, videos and otherwise from WTC that day, it looks like a nuclear bomb went off. No pun intended.
Radiation sicknesses in those who worked on the pile. Hot spots visible from space. Molten iron in the belly for 3 months.
None of those come from burning office fires, as was just demonstrated in Dubai, again, on New Years Day.
Take off your rose-colored glasses sir--the official story is but a fantasy.

So now you are saying that doctors through out the country are hiding radiation sickness cases?
Because I have not heard one sick responder say it was due to radiation.
cannot generate enough heat to leave molten iron for 3 months. Think Nuclear Meltdown.
Office fires cannot blow huge pieces laterally for hundreds of feet.

I wonder how many pro-OS'ers profit from material they publish and/or monetary donations they receive?
Within minutes of the crash, McKinney sent a radiological health inspector to check the site for any radiation sources. He reached Richard Borri, a senior scientist in the department’s office of Radiological Health, who like most people from DOH, was on his way to work when the first tower was hit.
“While I was walking down Church Street, with all my instruments, I came within 1000 feet of the South Tower, and unfortunately the building came down,” says Borri, sounding every bit the unruffled scientist. “It’s a good thing I walked slowly.”
How does one continue on one’s mission without getting distracted by such details as a 110-story building comes down in front of you? “You concentrate on what you need to do,” says Borri, who simply walked amid the vehicles and victims covered with layers and layers of soot, “taking samples off the people coming out of the building.”
The high-tech gadget he carried, one of the few available in the United States, is far more precise than its century-old cousin, the Geiger Counter.
Borri checked the World Trade Center site for signs of radiation before and after the collapse of the buildings. Radiation could have originated in industrial radiology sources, such as the installing beams of the huge office buildings, which may have contained some radioactive elements from x-rays taken, and from depleted uranium used in ballasts in aircraft wing tips (such counterweights in airplane wing tips give the most weight for least volume, says Borri). It might also be left from any medical or dental offices.
The radiation that caused all the radiation sicknesses in those who worked "on the pile." The radiation that caused the sicknesses addressed by the Zadroga Bill.
