Michael Shermer is 95% Hot Air on the WTC Collapses
Has anyone noticed that there is a new "911 Truth Denier" phrase floating around?
It goes somethng like this: "The WTC Towers collapsed vertically because they were 95% air".
I realize it is hard to believe anyone would use this "reasoning", even government shills.
However, here is one example of it's use, from a recent+article+by+Michael+Shermer+in+Scientific+American: "Conspiricists argue that the buildings should have fallen over on their sides, but with 95 percent of each building consisting of air, they could only have collapsed straight down."
This statement, of course, is not only meant to explain a vertical collapse, but also to imply that the towers were somehow insubstantial. It is a ridiculous, obvious shill tactic, transparent to anyone with two brain cells to rub together. Whover uses this idiotic phrase needs to be called on it by the 911 truth community immediately.
I have a simple physics question for Eager and Shermer: how is it that I, at 175 pounds, can stand on two empty soda cans (one under each foot) without crushing them, vertically or otherwise? What percentage of air are they? The towers, of course, had 47 massive steel support columns going up the center, which my soda cans lack :)
