Because it is logical.
But what makes it logical to you?
I explained why it couldn't happen, I want you to explain why you think it could.
But the connections did fail first, the connections connecting the columns. The columns were not the weak point it was their connections that were.
No they didn't. If the connections failed first, then how did the trusses pull in the columns?
So you agree the columns were not the weak point, then why didn't either the trusses or the connections, 1" and 5/8" bolts, fail before the trusses
could pull the columns in? The pulling force would first effect the truss, then the connections and finally the columns. So why didn't the truss or
connections fail first?
No mechanism? If the floor truss starts to sag it will pull on what it is connected to, you know they are connected to the perimeter columns.
Why would the trusses pull because they sagged? And again it will also pull on itself and the connections, so were the connections stronger than the
columns? You've already said they weren't, so then why did the connections or the truss itself fail before it could cause the columns to be pulled
Just saying you think it's logical does not answer the question. If you can't answer this question then why are you so sure the OS is correct?
