An empty building, where noone died, and which presence was hindering search and recovery at the ruins of the WTC1/2 towers?

Wasn't the collapse of Building 7 reported on BBC like 20 minutes early..?

Yeah,

Legit to the max..

Also had a concrete core........


Reinforced concrete core with waffle slabs supported by internal RC columns and steel beams, with perimeter steel columns which were unprotected above the 17th Floor level at the time of the fire.


The steel section above the 17th floor collapsed from the fire


The Windsor Tower was completely gutted by the fire on 12 February 2005. A large portion of the floor slabs above the 17th Floor progressively collapsed during the fire when the unprotected steel perimeter columns on the upper levels buckled and collapsed (see Figure 1). It was believed that the massive transfer structure at the 17th Floor level resisted further collapse of the building.


Time line


23:00 Fire started at the 21st Floor
23:05 ~ 23:20 After receiving a fire signal, the security guards went to the 21st floor and attempting to fight the fire before giving up
23:21 Fire brigade was called
23:25 Fire brigade arrived
23:30 Fire brigade started to fight the fire (news report)
00:00 All floors above the 21st floor were in fire (news report)
00:30 Fire brigade retreated and adopted a defensive position, preventing fire spread to adjacent buildings
02:00 Fire spread below the 17th floor
02:15 Chunks of facade started falling off (news report)
03:30 Fire spread below 16th floor, crossing over the upper technical floor
04:00 Floors at upper level collapsed (news report)
05:30 Fire spread below the 12th floor (news report)
08:30 Fire spread below the 4th floor
13:30 Fire was under controlled
17:00 Fire brigade declared the put out of the fire (news report)

Normal folks who are interested should learn to verify facts for themselves or at least be willing to ask for assistance.

The falling Penthouse has been in the NIST report on WTC 7, since the report was released. There's a complete timeline for the collapse of WTC 7 in that report. The same time line also mentions the free fall acceleration that occured for 2.25 seconds.

Normal folks have a choice to remain ignorant and trust what they read on conspiracy forums, or to deny ignorance and research as much as they can. Probably easier for most normal folks to switch off the internet and turn on the TV or go watch some live sporting event in a gladitorial arena.


I'd simply substitute "Normal folks" for "Working folks". Prior to Nov of last year when some medical issues forced me into freelance work, I didn't have the time to thoroughly research every story I wanted to or that I really needed to, despite being a serious news hound to the extent time allowed. I don't believe it's ignorance as much as it's trying to find the pieces of true value in a sea of questionable items.

Thank you for directing me to the NIST report. I must admit I've read references to it, but never actually sat down and read it. Now between the OP video, the Madrid Tower fire I went off to learn about and your own post directing me to this:

NIST Report Summary of Building 7

I believe I can say I have a far better understanding as to what happened at that small piece of the 9/11 events than I did this morning. To refer back to another point in the thread, this is what makes Alternative Media so much stronger than MSM can really hope to be. You are right though. It requires work to get the real benefits from it.

Excellent video here on the science behind Building 7's collapse, complete with models and videos, particularly a video with an angle of Building 7 rarely shown.


Ohhh okay, I guess now when they want to demolish a building they should just set it on fire...

I mean fires gotta be cheaper than explosives...

derp.

ok, i think people are misinterpreting what was meant by melting steel.....we are talking about reall melting steel, like flowing lava style melting steel,,,molten steel was found in the wtc7 rubble, how did office fires melt the steel to the liquid point? I would love for the people who believe the official story to explain that to me......

Even if the interior structure collapsed similarly to the extent depicted in the NIST animation in just eight seconds (yeah right) it still does not explain how the birdcage-like exterior frame collapsed through itself at free fall while only having to carry its own self-weight (as the floors to which the live loads were applied had supposedly already collapsed).

I don't see how that scenario suddenly makes free fall acceptable.

Thats why i believe that building 7 was demolished because surely it would of partially collapsed or just bits falling off....not collapse like it did.

1. Some of these are "degreed only." For instance, they did a bachelor's degree then went on to a career like high school teacher or auto repair. AE911 is disingenuous when it calls these signers "engineering professionals."


"Degreed Only" still entails having a degree in either engineering or architecture. I.E. learned people.

Unless you feel they just give degrees out? If that is the case then it is obvious you've never earned one.


2. Some of the signers who have engineering degrees have degrees in specialties not related to construction. I skimmed the list and saw a biomedical engineer, an electrical engineer, a paper engineer, and a software engineer. While I am sure these are brilliant people, they do not have any special insight into building collapses.


This is the biggest logical fallacy of them all. All engineers and architects have to take statics (physics of bodies that are not in motion), dynamics (physics of bodies that are in motion), and just plain physics (including electrical physics).

So, yes, these learned people can think for themselves thank you very much.


3. There are 1.6 million engineers in the United States and, if I remember correctly, 140,000 architects. (I pulled the BLS numbers in an earlier thread.*) If AE 911 Truth only allowed Americans to sign, their petition would represent less than 0.1% of the eligible signers. Since they allow signatures from other countries, their petition has been signed by far less than 0.1% of the eligible signers. The inclusion of non-engineers with engineering degrees among the signers inflates the pool of eligible signers, and reduces the fraction that signed, even more.


Another fallacy. Choosing not to make a choice is still making the choice not to choose. I.E. just because someone is not vocal does not automatically include them in the "yes" crowd.


4. Some of the signers repeat debunked rumors and myths in their signing statements. We do not know if they would have signed, given correct information.


Some of the "debunking" I've seen can use a little debunking.

i watched the vid. so poster, or whomever made this vid...flaming garbage took out #7!?!?! seriously!?!?!?!?! u would look another american face to face and say "yeah flaming garbage from the other tower came over here, burned other garbage at 2000+ degrees, and burned the building down." i apologize to mods or anyone this offends but i spit in your f_ing face you scum. terrorists? no. this, the person who made this vid, and the people in charge are the garbage we should be fighting. this is the best example of disinfo i have ever seen

Some institutions do. But the point is, the phrase "architects and engineers" describes a set belonging to those two professions. Someone who is degreed but does not practice the profession is not an architect or an engineer. They could honestly join "People Who Studied Architecture and Engineering for 9/11 Truth," but letting them into AE911 Truth is just disingenuous.


This is the biggest logical fallacy of them all. All engineers and architects have to take statics (physics of bodies that are not in motion), dynamics (physics of bodies that are in motion), and just plain physics (including electrical physics).

If these three courses are sufficient to analyze collapsing skyscrapers, why did NIST hire a bunch of PhDs and specialists to do it for them? They could've gotten anyone with a BS in any engineering discipline and saved us all some money. Or perhaps a bachelor's level education in physics, followed by a career in paper or BME, does not prepare one to analyze the collapse of a skyscraper? I wouldn't send a NIST structural engineer to do a BME's job; would you send a BME to do a structural engineer's job?


Another fallacy. Choosing not to make a choice is still making the choice not to choose. I.E. just because someone is not vocal does not automatically include them in the "yes" crowd.

I never claimed to address what the 99.9+% who didn't sign believe. I was doing just what I said, putting the 1500+ number in context so readers would not be snowed by it. An "architects and engineers for 9/11 reality" petition would be an interesting exercise; we could probably limit it to people named Steve like that evolution declaration and get a pretty good result. I can't be bothered to do it, though.


Some of the "debunking" I've seen can use a little debunking.

Whenever you're ready.

All kinds of hidden stuff in the 4th dimension. I went to typing in ATS website in the address and missed it by one letter. AVG gave me back this.





Spiritual warfare is much funner than 3 dimensional warfare which is very messy and unimaginitive.


Social Engineering stuck out the most.
Go AVG and 4th dimension
