Explosives Caused WTC Collapse

That is what Brigham Young University physics professor Steven E. Jones is claiming in a paper posted Tuesday, according to The Deseret Morning News:

The physics of 9/11 – including how fast and symmetrically one of the World Trade Center buildings fell – prove that official explanations of the collapses are wrong, says a Brigham Young University physics professor.

In fact, it’s likely that there were “pre-positioned explosives” in all three buildings at ground zero, says Steven E. Jones.

Perhaps lingering questions are about to be answered?

Update: Apparently professor Jones has a lot of company.

    This story looks eerily familiar. Where have I seen it before?

    IO Error, looks like you beat me to the punch…

    Love your site by the way.

    Here we go again. Another conspiracy theory. What the hell was I looking at when I thought the pictures on TV were live when the second plane hit the other tower?

    Those damn news media and the government. They really fooled all of us with the entire federal government colluding with New York City and its citizens and the entire news media covering up the truth that pre-positioned explosives in the towers (and maybe the Pentagon?) caused the illusion of planes, fire, smoke and the collapse.

    Julian,

    It must be all that pentagon produced LSD you took while in nam… Or was that the only war you weren’t our hero in?

    Makes sense to me. But hey, how’d they get there???? Even if it really was Islamist terrorist, I don’t see ow the gov’t didn’t help them. The government can only do one thing right, help enlarge their powers.

  • rickrajter

    AB,

    And how do they enlarge powers? It’s easiest when the masses are scared and beg the government to help them. When does that happen? National emergencies.

  • rickrajter

    Was Sir Isaac Newton a terrorist? Did his 3 laws of motion, created hundreds of years ago, only exist to throw off all the masses into “conspiracy theorists” centuries later?

    I think not.

    The government 9/11 believers have come up with a whole laundry list of fairy tales. And when each one is systematically brought to the point of laugh-ability, they conjure up a new one or cower behind denial, ad hominen attacks, or trying to distract at all costs.

    I’ll let everyone else conjure up the why’s and who’s. The fact is, the falls of 3 towers from 2 planes and small fires does not make any sense. period. End of story.

    Thanks for posting this Mike. Be prepared for the obligatory ridicule :)

    9/11 was an inside job, just like the Reighstag Fire of 1933.

    The Towers were taken down by controlled demolition, as was WTC7.
    All this is self-evident from the archived news broadcasts of that day.
    This is now conventional wisdom throughout the Middle East and Europe certainly, and probably in Latin America as well.

    They are laughing at us … with our 12-stepper bumbling President and our overweight population of television-brainwashed couch potatoes.

    The only thing that gives us any credibility at this point, is our military-industrial complex and its hired mercenaries.
    But, as a consequence of Iraq, that also may be starting to decay.

    It’s no big deal.
    The American educational system has been dumbed-down and the American population sedated for so long, most wouldn’t do anything about it anyway.

    We could go to war over childish cartoons – if that’s what authority figures told people to do….

    Sounds like you don’t particularly care for the United States or Americans. You sound like a lot of other people that dislike us and our society.

    Guess what, retard? No one is saying that the planes did not hit the tower. The more inquisitive are asking real questions about how this could have happened because the “official” explanation does not carry water in the reality-based (aka scientific) community.

    You can ignore the questions and pretend you know more than this physics professor, just from watchin your TV, but that doesn’t make you a worthy judge of what really happened.

    Did you even read Jones’ report? Of course not!

    Well it is good that it is finally coming out. And those that know lament the fact that most people are brain dead cattle. That’s why they have been able to get away with it for so long, they knew their audience Only those that don’t already know and the dangerously stupid believe the official story. 2 plus 2 equals 4 not 5.

  • Eric Wilds

    If you are going to knock down someone’s theory make sure you’re attacking his theory and not your own strawman. Dr Steven Jones is just making a few common sense observations: no plane hit WTC7 and yet it collapsed in what looks like controlled demolition. Since WTC7 was not hit by a plane and there were only a few small fires, controlled demolition fits the available facts the best. This is not a conspiracy theory; but science — using the facts to test a hypothesis. But I guess the people on this board want us to believe the people who told us Iraq had WMD and all that nonsense are honest and truthful. That Iraq had WMD or hid them away in Syria are conspiracy theories — and once that have been thoroughly debunked.

    “Here we go again. Another conspiracy theory. What the hell was I looking at when I thought the pictures on TV were live when the second plane hit the other tower?”

    Knee jerk emotional reactionary hair trigger pulling from an obviously extremist pro-government anti-conspiracy nut. Yeah, no d’uh, planes hit the building. Nobody sane, in Heaven or on Earth, is disputing that. Why don’t you -read- things, Julian, before you go off and post things that make you look like a horse’s behind? Nobody is saying planes never hit the buildings, what we’re saying is that planes -aren’t what brought the buildings down-.

    “Jael-Rahav

    No, he’s just making some common sense points. I’m getting rather tired of hearing dippos preach that dissent equals unpatriotism. No, patriotism MEANS questioning your government when you think they’re doing something wrong. Speaking out against a corrupt government, does not equal hatred for America, and does not equal fuel for terrorists, when we all know who the real terrorists are.
