9/11 Myths

The German magazine Der Spiegel mentions (german only) the success of the Loose Change, supporting the usual 9/11 conspiracy theories. I do not plan to watch that movie, I do not expect anything new. The article also doesn't mention anything that hasn't been debunked already, but dissapointingly, it doesn't mention that most of the perceived peculiarities can be explained naturally. But I want to take this opportunity to list a few sites that debunk most (all?) of the myths floating around:

One reason I do not buy these conspiray theories is that I believe the current US administration is just too stupid for that.

Hello, I didn't like 9/11 lose change particularly. Its more like a big, stylish music video. However, if you see one thing, you should check out Physics professor Steven Jones' presentation he did about the collapsing mechanics of the WTC buildings and building 7.

His paper is at

his talk is at :

Looking at his presentation, it is indeed peculiar if you compare how buildings in eartyhquakes or buildings hit by fires normally fall or are gutted and look at how the WTC, but especially the smaller WTC building 7 which wasn't hit by any plane just neatly collapsed into itself. Really worth checking out and no wacky conspiracy theorist here. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of "JFK'ers" among the conspiracy theorists and I, for one, but Steven Jones is different. Finally, another mechanical engineer Prof. who wrote about the collapse dynamics is Judy wood (Clemson faculty) :

Check out those two before you categorically reject that there are any open questions. These guys are both pretty tame scientists and are just asking questions.

Wether Bush & Co had anything to do with anything ? What I pointed you to doesn't say anything about that, it is just pointing out inconsistencies and not even reviewing this material is like some people rejecting "evolutionists" off hand without even reviewing the science. Cheers, -C

Sorry, there was an error in my previous comment. I meant to hit "preview" instead of "submit" before I posted it, but oh well...

Previous comment said : "...there are plenty of "JFK'ers" among the conspiracy theorists and I, for one, but Steven Jones is different."

should say : "...there are plenty of "JFK'ers" among the conspiracy theorists and I, for one, really get annoyed at them, but Steven Jones is different."

Hmmm... Looks like my original comment is a Freudian slip ! :) Anyway, hope you really have a chance to at least cursory glance at the taped seminar by Professor Jones. (By the way, yes, I agree that giving the current administration credit for this would be almost to acknowledge them competent !)

Ok, one last little thing (I am starting to feel like Columbo.) : It should be "Mechanical Engineering Prof. Judy Wood" not "mechanical engineer Prof. Judy Wood."

( Curse the premature clicking of the "Submit" button ! )

I also see her URL didn't wrap in your comments section but exceeds the frame, so here it is again but in a tiny-url format: http://

Also Steve Jones' paper (pdf file) is at : http://

Phew ! :)

Be sure to check out the book “Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory” due out in March by Dr. David Ray Griffin.
