By Jove, he's ALMOST got it!
The following email was sent to me by Scholars for 9/11 Truth member Nila Sagadevan. Its a little long, but well worth the read, given that he's corresponding with the head of a state Republican Committee.
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I received an email from a gentleman whoâ€™s the head of a Republican Committee in Louisiana. It included the following:
â€œOne has only to look at the videos of the buildings falling to see through your lie. I have watched dozens of buildings being demolished. They fall down all at once as all of the support structure is blown up. The WTC buildings both fell one story at a time, with each floor remaining in place until it is crushed by the enormous weight of the floors above coming down on it. A ten-year-old child can see the difference when shown the videos.â€
My response (which you may decide to distribute widely):
I see YOUâ€™RE ALMOST THERE! Youâ€™ve almost proved it to yourself!
â€œThe WTC buildings both fell one story at a time, with each floor remaining in place until it is crushed by the enormous weight of the floors above coming down on it.â€
Now, just THINK about what you said for a moment.
Letâ€™s presume that as the floors fell â€œone storey at a timeâ€, each of the 110 floors momentarily resisted the floor falling upon it for just ONE SECOND.
After all, every one of these floors was supported by steel trusses, welds, rivets, bolts, etc., so letâ€™s say EACH floor took at least ONE SECOND before it succumbed to the weight above it.
This would amount to a total of 110 seconds (I.e., 1 sec/floor), correct?
But letâ€™s be outrageously charitable, and say each floor only resisted the floor falling upon it for HALF a second.
This would equal 55 seconds in sum, correct?
Now, roll your video.
Take out a STOPWATCH and time the collapse.
Youâ€™ll find that IT TOOK LESS THAN 10 SECONDS for the roof to strike the ground!
In fact, it took 9.4 seconds for the roof of the 110-storey North tower to hit the ground 1,350 feet below.
This would be IMPOSSIBLE if there was ANY KIND OF STRUCTURE resisting the falling mass!
Because 9.4 seconds is about how long it would take a BALL dropped from the roof of one of the towers â€” AND FALLING THROUGH AIR -- to strike the ground.
So how could the ROOF fall through 110 FLOORS and take the same amount of time to hit the ground as the BALL?
The ONLY way this could have happened would have been if every single vertical support beneath every falling floor was suddenly blown out of the way just before that floor impacted the one below it.
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS IN A CONTROLLED DEMOLITION -- Explosives are used to BLAST the supports â€œout of the wayâ€ of the falling floors, so that the only resistance the falling mass experiences is THIN AIR!
A SIMPLE STOPWATCH TELLS THE WHOLE STORY:
Canâ€™t you see it is IMPOSSIBLE for the ROOF of the tower to crash through 110 FLOORS in the same amount of time as a ball dropped from the roof?
It is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE â€” without explosives.
YOUâ€™RE ALMOST THERE, MAN... THINK!
Look closely at the photo below. Do you see the myriad little tooth-pick-like objects shooting UPWARDS and outwards?
THOSE ARE HEAVY STEEL BEAMS! Many of these beams were found OVER 300 FEET AWAY from the towers!
Do you see entire multi-beam ASSEMBLIES, each weighing several TONS, being blown out?
What was the force that caused all this? [GW: Here Nila shows a photo of debris being ejected far out horizontally from one of the collapsing Twin Towers]
OPEN YOUR EYES... And THINK!
