Story Defies Most Basic Common Sense
The idea that the towers "fell down"
shattering into small pieces and dust
contradicts people's basic experience with physical structures.
- A steel wood stove doesn't shatter because of prolonged exposure to fires.
- A gas stove, with a flame hotter than any building fire,
does not collapse on itself.
- It is difficult to build even a house of cards that will collapse
from top to bottom.
Yet engineers were tripping over themselves to explain the collapses,
not because they were made to by the perpetrators,
but because they
want to believe Osama bin Laden was responsible.
