Surely then, the question is - if the idea is correct - why there aren't more who back it?


Perhaps, because most of these engineers have families to feed and bills to pay and are not going to risk their careers perhaps they do not want to rock the boat. Because mainstream media has polluted the truth by calling anyone that speaks out against the OS is un-American and supports the terrorist or is a wacko, nut job? Most people work hard for their degrees’ and they aren’t going to throw their careers away over an event.

Notice the description.
Jim Lecce
"The Ruler"
Burnished cooper over wood carving
3' x 1'
Not just the spelling mistake, but the materials used. Iron is not one of them. Wood is though. Thats a great piece that can me made using a jeweler's oxy acetylene torch, which is very small. Not much cast iron being used in jewelry.

No.

But what I am saying is that there is popular theory, and there is a mass consensus.

1398 represents a popular theory. It sounds like a big number, but actually, in perspective its not.

I don't doubt there's some of this but I think there's an even simpler reason.


Look at the person who's asking this question as an example: some people look to others first before making up their own mind.

Instead of being able to look directly at data and realize the situation, the first (and only) thing many people can do, is look at what others are saying first.

This is exactly why even after Copernicus realized the Earth revolves around the Sun, hardly anyone would believe him for entire generations. Because instead of actually looking and thinking, all people did was look to each other, feed off their own stupidity and flap their gums, for entire generations, on something as simple as the Earth revolving around the Sun for god's sake.


A weak-minded person may read this and take it personally, take offense or just start more petty bickering.

A stronger-minded person will read this and say, "Okay, it's true that masses of people are not always automatically correct, and can even do an incomprehensibly small amount of thinking, so I'll look at the data honestly for my own benefit."

If you don't have faith in your own judgment then it's only your loss.

Perspective.

TheInstitution of Civil Engineers (UK) has 84,350 members

The Institution of Structural Engineers (uk) has over 23,000 members

The American Society of Civil Engineers has over 140,000 members

Working that out, based on the major institutions of two countries, thats 0.5% of engineers.

But not all of the signatories are Engineers, some are architects. The pool of architects from those two countries would dilute the pot even more. (The American Institute of Architects has 83.500+ members)

Surely then, the question is - if the idea is correct - why there aren't more who back it?

Sure, 1398 sounds like a huge figure, but out of how many worldwide?


“Perspective.”

Fine, now please show us the numbers to how many Engineers have [color=gold]spoken out against Jones’ Journal in both countries?
Just because not very many professionals signed on, it doesn’t prove Jones science is flawed.

So, let's get this straight, shall we?

A conspiracy theorist, who is an art curator, not a member of a scientific team, stuffs away some dust from her apartment several days after the event, based upon a "spiritual feeling".

Years later she claims to send some of that dust to another conspiracy theorist, who isn't even a chemist, and was trying to come up with a way to get people to buy into his pre-determined conclusion that thermite took down the towers.

Then the conspiracy theorist fails to do the most basic of tests on the sample (running the test in the absence of air) and proceeds to proclaim "it's themite!" while other conspiracy theorists jump up and down and give him high 5's while making excuses about the questionable test. Because it's what they all wanted to hear none of them actually question his motives or procedure, but accept it as absolute proof.

And now...

A bunch of conspiracy theorists , many of whom belong to a website that happens to make it's money on keeping the conspiracy theory alive, agree with his findings.

Wow, big surprise.

Cool story.

Ok, I get it.

Who really cares though? I mean its been almost 10 years. We all know the government is crooked and there are alternative agendas.

Let the dead rest and move on people with your lives.

who cares anymore?

Nobody will touch Jones' paper because they know they can't deal with the science. If they do, they
will admit by science that 9/11 was an inside job.



Not saying it could not have been an inside job, but a paper that states thermitic material or explosives have been found does not clarify who put them there.

When was this pieces done?
Was it done before 911 or years after 911?
Why would a sculpture use na-nothermite (military grade) to weld this piece if he welded anything at all?

Did Jim say he welded this piece?
And did Jim weld before the dust samples were taken, or are you assuming that to?

The whole tone of your post seems to make out "conspiracy theorists" automatically as second-class thinkers and not to be taken seriously.

Is that what you're trying to say? While a member of the largest conspiracy theory forum yourself? Do you always make it a habit to associate with what you see as discredited and irrational people?

One of the "conspiracy theorists" you're referring to, Steven Jones, was actually a career research physicist and tenured professor of physics at BYU for a number of years. He did nuclear research all across the US, in Canada, Japan, and that's just off the top of my head. His resume is huge and stamping him with the label "conspiracy theorist" and brushing everything else he says or does aside based on that is immature and unreasonable.

The reason he didn't test in the absence of air could be because he understands a few things about what exactly that would or wouldn't prove, than you do. The whole reason was to prove it wasn't simple combustion but an actual thermite reaction. Well as it happens, the reaction produced iron spheres that normal combustion could not produce, thus giving you an indication of the reaction without having to remove the presence of oxygen. Something else: the "combustion" occurred with more energy than the same size sample of commercially-available thermite. There is more that I'm sure would speak more to a PhD and world-renown research physicist, and the others who worked on the paper with him (notably Niels Harrit, someone else with a better resume than yours) than it would to either of us, if you must always defer to those who should "know better."

So it turns out the most likely and rational explanation was true after all.

At best, under the circumstances, he has an interesting theory.

Thats all it is though, a theory. It proves nothing. It may very well be wrong.

Just because some people may think things looked wrong, it doesn't mean that things were wrong. Up until 9/11/2001 no one had flown 767 airliners at 400mph+ deliberately into the Twin Towers.

Remember - 9/11 IS the rule and not the exception to the rule

How would Janette MacKinlay or a scientist know that na-nothermite was in the WTC dust samples before testing it?
You are trying your best to twist garbage nonsense into something that’s not true.

Furthermore, did Jim have a license to use na-nothermite by ATF?

Many of you debunkers cant answer these question, so attacking the truth movement by calling them a bunch of conspiracy theorists only proves you have no evidence to disprove Jones Journal.

Let us take into account the location of that apt building, you would agree that the cost of living in that apartment would be somewhat expensive? Someone that could afford to live in such a place would no doubt have expensive items in their home. Now take the equipment needed to braze iron, and try to braze that iron effectively around such expensive items without causing harm to them. Were there no fire codes to adhere to in this apt complex? Now as for contaminated baggies, if the bag used to collect this dust that was covering her entire apt was a bag that was found at the scene, would not this bag just be contaminated with MORE DUST?

So, you're a fan of his I take it?

Unreasonable is taking a non scientific sample and sending it to a conspiracy theorist who is trying to prove his pre-determined conclusion, then expect people who aren't conspiracy theorists to accept that.

Nope. Not going to happen.

If you ever want anyone to take this matter seriously then get an independent team of scientists to procure several samples and run the proper tests, then publish their peer-reviewed findings. The fact that no one in the conspiracy theorist world even bothers to push for this is quite telling. To me that is immature, so save your insults.

Otherwise, all it comes out to be is that a bunch of people on the same side of the argument agree with each other. And it is quite a small bunch.

Wow, prime example of what I just said above. Until the proper tests are run, there is no proof. Period. No one outside that small circle of conspiracy theorists will ever buy into it no matter how much you try and belittle people and claim they don't understand.

No, as a matter of fact it means this whole line of "reasoning" you are using is flawed, and doesn't mean anything.

Why are you implying this "reasoning" in your rhetorical questions?

Exactly! But that's what Jones tried to desperately to prove since he had already made that claim years prior :



On September 22, 2005 Jones presented his views on the collapse of the World Trade Center towers and World Trade Center 7 at a BYU seminar attended by about 60 people. Pointing to the speed and symmetry of the collapses, the characteristics of dust jets, eyewitness reports of explosions down low in the buildings, partially vaporized beams, molten metal in the basements which was still red hot weeks after the event, and the notion that no modern high rise had ever collapsed from fire, Jones suggested that the evidence defies the mainstream collapse theory and favors controlled demolition, possibly by the use of thermite or nanothermite.





You are trying your best to twist garbage nonsense into something that’s not true.


You can now feel free to eat those insults, CL.

Again with this "conspiracy theorist" label.

I'm going to ask you again, what in the hell is that supposed to mean?

Are you saying since you perceive Jones as a "conspiracy theorist," you're more qualified of a scientist than he is now, even on the subject of chemistry? Jones might not have his PhD in chemistry but do you? And are you a world-renown research scientist in any field? Do you think world-renown physicists don't know anything at all about chemistry? Niels Harrit is a professor of chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, do you think he knows anything about chemistry? He co-authored the same work we are talking about.


If you ever want anyone to take this matter seriously then get an independent team of scientists to procure several samples


This IS an independent team of scientists! What do you want, people from the federal government?! Anyone else is apparently a "conspiracy theorist" to you anyway and automatically stupid. Where does this idea come from that "conspiracy theorists" are some completely different type of human beings that have some secret agenda and can't be trusted? From your own head, my friend, and you are not correct in your thinking.

And they did have more than one sample. I've seen Jones in videos before explaining that they collected dust from several sites around Manhattan and tested them all. If you actually take the time to look you will find everything you are asking for.



The reason he didn't test in the absence of air could be because he understands a few things about what exactly that would or wouldn't prove, than you do.


Wow, prime example of what I just said above. Until the proper tests are run, there is no proof. Period.


So you have nothing to say about the fact that the stuff produced iron spheres, something that combustion can't do? Nothing about the fact that the whole reason removing oxygen would be performed in the first place, is to rule combustion out? Nothing about the fact that this stuff is more energetic than the same size sample of conventional thermite? Do you think simple combustion can melt steel but something more energetic than thermite can't? I guess since I'm also a "conspiracy theorist" in your eyes nothing I say can be trusted either, and so you just have to block your ears and yell really loud to drown all this out.

Personaly, I feel they are mostly agents of one sort or another being paid or otherwise to muddy the waters and cause doubt, or try to instill confusion intothe arguement...actually it's not even an arguement any more, it's gone way beyond any reasonable doubt.
Lets see who arrives to do the aforementioned
