The Easiest Way to Understand 9/11 Was a Demolition: Free-Fall

    Christians for 9/11 Truth


    The Twin Towers and Building 7 disappeared in a matter of seconds, from 10 to 14 seconds. That is about how long it would take a bowling ball or a wrecking ball to reach the ground if dropped from the top of the towers, called free-fall speed. Nothing can fall faster than free-fall speed and to reach that speed an object must be falling through thin air, with nothing between it and the ground (such as 95,000 tons of structural steel. ) Nothing can attain anything even close to free-fall speed through anything but thin air.

    The steel frames would have to be cut and blown out in pieces at an accelerated rate from the top down, in the cases of the Twin Towers, so that the pieces are not meeting any resistance and are literally falling through thin air. This is a basic law of physics which tells us it was a demolition.

    Free-fall speed is the same no matter what the weight of a falling mass. Galileo proved this. Free-fall speed is an acceleration of 10 meters per second, per second. This means for every second an object is falling it gains another ten meters per second in speed. So if an object is falling for three seconds, its speed at the end of three seconds is 30 meters per second.

    Here is a demonstration of Galileo's theory that heavier objects do not fall faster than lighter objects, but that they fall at the same speed.

    The common misconception is that as the mass of "collapsing floors" accumulated, the mass accelerated. But mass does not accelerate as it gets heavier. The official story plays on a misconception which goes back, literally, to the days of Flat Earth. Mass can only go slower than free-fall speed, never faster. The resistance of 95,000 tons of structural steel, even if it were weakened, would have slowed and arrested the fall of any partial collapses.

    Looked at another way, look at the picture below. If released at the same time, which 15-story block will hit the ground first, no matter how "soft like clay" the steel may be from fires, a favorite phrase of official story defenders? Obviously the one on the right should hit the ground first:

    [​IMG]

    But surprise! On 9/11 both hit the ground at virtually the same time!
    The block on the left dropped as fast as if it were the block on the right! This only happens in demolitions in which all structural supports are cut out at the same time.

    In the video record of 9/11 you can see this happening, the structural steel being cut to pieces as the line of demolition accelerates downward. You see clean-cut steel beams being ejected laterally, for up to two football fields, at speeds of up to 80MPH. In a satellite photo taken just 12 days after the attacks, before clean-up had begun and the search for bodies and long-shot survivors was still ongoing, you can see the clean-cut steel beams laying like a thick carpet across the entire WTC complex.

    All other evidence is secondary, even though there is plenty of it: the molten steel in the basements for months afterwards, the presence of explosive residue (nano-thermite, military grade), the impossible flying and navigation jobs of amateur pilots who had only practiced in simulators, and the rest.

    All these little toothpick like objects you see spinning out at explosive speeds are multi-ton pieces of steel:

    The straight "sticks" you see lying across the WTC complex are 3, 4 and 5- foot wide steel beams each weighing many tons. How did the below piece of perimeter wall get all the way to Church Street?

    The demolition was called a "banana-peel" style demolition like below. Compare the patterns, streamers of debris arcing outward. This style, top-down, is used for tall buildings where tipping is a danger if it were done from bottom to top (traditional).

    So you started another Truther thread because you didn't like the responses on the other thread, LOL?

    The "Plausible Theory" website does a nice job of combining and rehashing old information and speculation. There are, of course many gaps and the fanciful tale of painting thermite on beams inside walls and how the thousands of people involved have been able to stay quiet for over ten years.

    Somebody should make a movie. MI: 9/11, starring Tom Cruise.:cool:

    Love conspiracy theories. Though they tend to be, without exception, pure nonsense with no valid evidence to back them up, it IS interesting to see what other people's beliefs are.

    The 9/11 conspiracy theory is one of the most interesting of the lot. Granted, it has such poor evidence and reasoning as to not be taken seriously, but it is fascinating to read what people come up with in their spare time. The human imagination is a wonderful thing.

    I used to think free-fall was the easiest-to-understand proof of demolition, but actually it gets even easier than that: photo evidence. It's right there on Youtube, plain as day. The BBC is reporting that Building 7 (which was never struck by an airplane, by the way...) collapsed, and yet there is Building 7, standing right there behind her. And then 20 minutes later, it collapses. If you wanna talk about conspiracy lunacy, how about then we talk about the BBC's amazing sense of ESP? So good, in fact, that they even report premonitions of the near future by accident!

    I don't know how it can get any clearer than that.

    And how those American networks had studios in New york on the air that day. And how they just happpened to have cameras trained on the second Tower when the second "plane" struck it.

    What does that have to do with BBC News and WTC? The reporter announced, reporting LIVE and ON LOCATION that WTC had gone down while it was standing right behind her. She jumped the gun by 26 minutes.

    [youtube]ltP2t9nq9fI[/youtube]

    I don't think this is the strongest evidence since the disinformation artists will always make up something ludicrous to try to explain it away (or deliberately misunderstand it like in the comment above.) What cannot be finessed is the laws of physics.

    The BBC flub is just one of many that can be seen, no crime this elaborate can be perfect. Like the WTC landlord Larry Silverstein telling the news reporter he told them to "pull" i.e. demolish the building. The disinfos are trained to say he meant pull the firefighters, but they had been pulled out 4 hours before.

    Silverstein "pull" it:
    [youtube]p34XrI2Fm6I[/youtube]

    Or Rudy Giuliani letting it slip to Peter Jennings that he had been tipped tipped off that the South Tower was going to collapse, the first one to do so. Who told him? Why didn't he tell anyone else but instead tucked tail and ran up Vessey Street, as the firefighters say? So many lives could have been saved.

    The news clip right there, on the ticker,, plain as day: "Solomon Brothers building collapses". And yet the building remains standing, right there behind the reporter. It even collapses right there on the TV screen after the ticker has already reported it!!

    And the crowd goes silent.... It's just a hmmm...well....

    The official explanation for the fall (that is - the "pancake theory") and the assumed acceleration due to *weight* doesn't pass scientific muster.

    If you ask the average Joe which will fall faster from a given height:

    A) A Tennis Ball
    B) A multi-ton truck

    Most will say that the multi-ton truck will fall faster due to it's weight.

    This is just ignorance of very basic Physics. The Tennis ball will hit the ground first because it has less aerodynamic drag.

    Not necessarily true. The tennis ball may have less drag, but ts also has less force with which to overcome that drag (and that force is its gravitational attraction to the earth, which is proportional to its mass). A feather will also have less drag than the truck, but I don't think there's any question about which would win that race.

    I would say that the theory it's an "inside job" holds no less weight than the official story and that the dissenters have less to gain from it being true.

    Of course, it wouldn't be the first "false flag" attack and not even the first by the United States government.

    There is certainly no question about which one I would rather be under when it falls.

    I'd like to also point out that WTC 7, which was not mentioned in the official report, was obviously demolished. No aircraft hit that building.

    No, no aircraft, just a whole ton of debris from the collapsing skyscraper next door. :doh:

    Try this experiment.

    Take a grocery store receipt. Crunch it into a relatively tight ball.

    Take a disc shaped weight ( I used 1.25 Kilo from my dumbbell set - many many times the weight of the crumpled up receipt - but feel free to use heavier weights).

    Hold the weight on it's side (like a frisbee) and the crumpled up receipt at the same height out and above your head - or stand on a wall, ladder etc.

    Drop them.

    The tightly crumpled up ball will hit the ground first every time.

    Each floor of the towers represents a massive area of drag - to - ground. Even if the pancake theory was true - it is simply impossible for them to have fallen at free fall speed. Not only because of the drag of each floor - but also the resistance encountered as each floor is hit.

    If the greater mass of additional floors added to it's rate of fall - it would be seen as speeding up.

    If the greater mass of additional floors subtracted from it's rate of fall - it would be seen as slowing down.

    Neither happened. The towers came down at a constant freefall rate of speed.

    This is simply not possible.

    ...Unless - they were pulverized to dust first - which is what we saw at ground zero and in the video of them falling as massive waves of concrete were literally ejected laterally from the structure as it went down.

    Not here, they don't.

    I just tried it with my wallet and a crumpled receipt and the wallet won every time, even when it had all the inserts unfolded (i.e. maximum drag).

    Because of its small mass, the receipt has a lower terminal velocity than either your weight or my wallet, so the receipt stops accelerating far sooner than either of those.

    If you watch the video of the south tower collapsing, you can see that the main structure collapse doesn't accelerate as quickly as the individual pieces of debris ejected from it.

    You are absolutely correct! You got one right! The "pancake theory" was discarded as more evidence and analysis was processed. That's why it is NOT the explanation of the NIST. The pdf is there for you.
