You are right when you say sounds of explosions don't automatically equate to explosives.
However, when one finds commercial explosive remnants in the dust....
....and has eye witness testimony

Because if the lobby, and lower supports had not have been weakened first, the resistance to collapse would be to great (buildings were very strong) and possibly only the top of the building would tip and fall,
They needed to make sure it was all dust, to avoid people like us having anything "solid" to go on.
I hope your proof takes into account the fact that the shafts were sealed, didn't reach the lobby, and the fuel slammed the building at 500 miles+ per hour. And if you could also in laymen's terms explain how the fuel was able to find these small shaft holes and pour into them, considering said shafts occupied such a miniscule percentage of available area for the fuel/wreckage to land on, let alone funnel into.
There were seven freight elevators, only one of which served all floors
Car 50 served every floor.
There were two express elevators (#6 and #7) to Windows on the World (and related conference rooms and banquet facilities) in WTC 1 and two to the observation deck in WTC 2.
Sorry to puncture your delusions....
Here is link describing elevator layout in WTC
The aircraft struck North Tower dead center which meant its path through building would go right through the elevator/stairwells
This has been fixed inn new WTC where elevator shaft/stairways are now encased in 2 1/2 feet of high strength concrete
Also the aircraft held over 9,000 gallons of jet fuel - plenty of fuel to be projected into elevator shafts
Numerous witnesses report smelling Kerosene (jet fuel) in the lobby...
...seeing fire shooting out of the shafts,
There were numerous people severely, even fatally burned in the lobby. Notice all the injuries are burns
No blast/shrapnel injuries which would expect from a high explosive
The yellow area indicates the large #6 and #7 elevators, which led to Windows on the World in the north tower (WTC 1) and to the observation deck in the south tower (WTC 2). This shaft is continuous from the impact zones to sublevel B4, where several people within the core area were injured by the jet fuel blast, and where building engineer Edward McCabe said the blast came "about 30 seconds" after he felt the building shift. [/ex
Yellow area are the 2 passenger elevators (Car # 6 & 7), Blue is freight elevator (Car #50)
The blue area in the floor plans below indicates the #50 freight elevator shaft, which is continuous from the impact zones to the lowest basement level, B6. In the north tower, with elevator operator Arturo Griffith and carpenter Marlene Cruz aboard, the #50 elevator was hit by a blast, dropped several floors, and stopped below the B1 landing. A large fireball came through the shaft just after Griffith and Cruz were pulled from smoky elevator.
Operative phrase " A large fireball came through the shaft..."

Nope. I am saying that there was a lot of rumors flowing around that day, not all of them based in fact. And to this DAY, NO ONE has produced any evidence of bombs/demolition materials.........super duper nano thermite dust doesnt count.

Uh, that's "ear" witness testimony. And isn't that funny? All these supposedly hundreds of folks "hear" explosion but we have no one that says I saw this explosion on floor
