9/11 WTC Debate: Collapse by Fire? or Explosive Controlled Demolition? March 6, 2011 in Boulder!

Colorado 9/11 Visibility is pleased to announce a live debate addressing the collapse of the three World Trade Center buildings on September 11, 2001.

Sunday afternoon, March 6th, at the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado, Colorado 9/11 Visibility will host a debate between Richard Gage, AIA (American Institute of Architects), and Chris Mohr, Denver investigative journalist and nondenominational minister.

The question: What brought down the three World Trade Center skyscrapers?

Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects. He has been an architect for over 23 years and has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed, steel-framed buildings. His quest for the truth about 9/11 began in 2006, and he subsequently founded Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

Chris Mohr, investigative journalist and advocate of the “natural collapse” theory, is a sincere seeker of the truth who has extensively researched the collapses of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings, consulted with independent physicists and engineers, and passionately argues that the buildings collapsed due to the plane impacts and fires.

In November 2010 at Denver’s Mercury Café, Mohr debated attorney Earl Staelin on the collapse of the twin towers. This debate was unprecedented in its civility and professionalism.

In the upcoming March 6th debate with Richard Gage, the discussion will explore not only the collapse of the twin towers, but also that of 47-story World Trade Center Building 7, which collapsed completely at 5:21 pm on 9/11/01. For those of you not familiar with the collapse of WTC7, this is a riveting, don’t-miss controversy. We look forward to a dynamic, respectful, and thoroughly informative exploration of these topics.

This is a rare opportunity! Please send this announcement to your contacts and invite them to join you at the debate, in particular those who would be especially interested in hearing both sides of this controversial issue.

We believe that both sides debating respectfully, yet passionately, will have a strong impact in making “what happened on 9/11″ a legitimate subject for public discourse.

Therefore, due to the importance and uniqueness of this event, Colorado 9/11 Visibility has commissioned a professional video team to film the debate and produce a high-quality program suitable for television broadcast, along with a DVD for distribution.

We need your help. This is an expensive endeavor, and we cannot continue to do work on this seminal issue without funds. We need donations, both large and small. Determine how important this work is to you and contribute accordingly. Please go here to donate at this website, or send a check made out to Colorado 9/11 Visibility and send to Fran Shure, 1841 S. Sherman St., Denver, CO 80210.

We are all volunteers, and your funds will be treated with great respect.

No comments ? No interest?

I'm running around like crazy trying to get ready to fly out and help with this debate and there isn't even one comment about this debate?

Waz up with that, y'all?

Anyone know much about Chris Mohr?

Anyone here going?

Anyone want a live audio stream from the debate?

The truth shall set us free, but we have to keep working for it.

Love is the only way forward, gotta love Colorado truth!

I listened

attentively to their pre-debate, and I'm considering writing a transcript. But there are other things in the pipeline as well :-)

I think these kind of debates

I think these kind of debates are effective and probably the best kind of actions the movement can take to increase interest and raise our credibility. Big things start at universities! I thought I would share a somewhat on topic anecdote here. As some may know I am a phd student in philosophy, so I am always in a university setting and hanging out with intellectuals. Yesterday one of my colleagues approached me and said "hey, somebody told me that you think 911 is an inside job". Right away I said "I wouldn't quite put it like that I just think we need a new investigation because the official story doesn't add up and have you seen video of bldg 7"? Anyway, he ended up saying something like "as long as nobody was killed there what does it matter? Maybe the bldgs were always rigged because they were used by intelligence agencies" I share this to give a small example of the kind of stubborn cognitive defense mechanisms we are up against, people who ought to be critical by nature would believe that some buildings might be rigged with bombs as a reasonable design element! And not even making the leap from the presence of explosives to the obvious conclusion that we need a new investigation. So in short I think we need something like a public education campaign to let people know what the normal behavior of steel framed high rise buildings are. I actually believe we can break through these defense mechanisms, but it will take more debates like this one and it will slowly seep in. Even my colleague left our discussion with a more open mind...

Ha ha

Yeah... that's a classic isn't it.

But so what if that were true? That means WTC 7 was demolished wasn't it? That means the entire multi-million dollar NIST investigation is an elaborate, malicious fraud and a lie, on a scale unheard of, protecting unknown entities and destroying various financial records used in ongoing investigations, plus it amounts to insurance fraud.

And all that on 9/11.

If he's right, he saying he's okay with the above. I'm not, and neither are the victims families. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't get to decide whether or not that would be unlawful or 'worth investigating'. In fact, his implied course of action (doing nothing) would incriminate him in a horrendous, unheard of cover up, had he been in a position to do so.

He should meditate on that for a while.

We need some help with the live audio stream! ! !

If anyone can come to the event with a laptop and handle the Colorado live audio stream, No Lies Radio will broadcast it.

Thanks.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

...

I've only just listened to this debate...regardless of the evidence (and obviously I don't agree with Chris Mohr) but the brutal truth is that he crushes Richard Gage here (who appears unconvincing frankly)...how very depressing.

UPDATE.
Ok I've listened to this again...I might have been a little harsh on Richard Gage but we really need something who can think on their toes and who doesn't sound scripted.
