When researching the 9/11 WTC collapse I have some advice.

Don't use youtube as a source. It's too easy for someone to claim to be an expert or offer incorrect information. Experts will publish papers or articles either in journals of engineering or personally and publish them. Don't use websites like or or other truther or debunker sites as a source EVER. Too many of them are filled with quotes taken out of context or biased information (some have outright lies or 100% non expert opinion). The best sites will always site their sources which will link to a site (or book) that has nothing to do with truthing or debunking 9/11 theories and you can read the article or publication that the quote was taken from.

When sites quote experts don't just read the quote. Google the experts name or find the original article that the expert wrote and was quoted from and READ IT.
Sometimes, after obtaining facts and information, experts have published more recent articles or demanded that previous statements be retracted.

Try to find sources and quotes are directly from the horses mouth. Don't let person A spoon feed you what person B thinks. Find out what person B thinks from person B. I'm sure most of you have played the game telephone when you were younger. The more people information travels through the less accurate it is likely to become.
