Do Conspiracy Theorists have peer-reviewed technical papers that support their controlled demolition fantasy?

Peer reviewed papers and articles on how the towers collapsed..

Paul I: As I responded to your email. peer-reviewed doesn't mean reviewed by other 9/11 Conspiracy Theorists! It means reviewed by objective engineers and scientists that effectively sign off on your work. Provide a source that is a mainstream, peer-reviewed journal and I will happily concede the point.

    Conspiracy theorists don't deal well with facts. Their heads might implode. LOL.

    The problem with conspiracy stories is that they get a life of their own. Rumor becomes truth, speculation becomes proof. 9/11 was such a terrible event for us that some justification, no matter how bizarre, rises to make some sense of the horror. Many folks become fixated on it - from Jews not showing up for work to the President having a hand in it. I guess it will never end - November 22, 1963 still has conspiracy swirling around it. And the farther we get from the event, the more these conspiracies grow. More than 70% of Americans think Kennedy was killed in some mafia/CIA hit. Me, I think 19 Islamic nuts flew those planes into the WTC, the Penatgon and a lonely field in Pennsylvania. And Oswald shot Kennedy.

    It was clearly NOT a controlled demolition - there is no evidence that demolition experts gutted out the buildings, pre-cut building members, planted explosives and then set off the charges (like what happened in the recent implosion of the building in vegas - read how long it took them to setup this building)

    Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. is a demolition company offering demolition contractor services. Visit website for more info

    1st one was edited my first week here it is Clinton Body Count

    as the next JFK thought I would share.

    WELCOME to the political arena. It's election season and if u think Cheney made a mistake in firing make no mistake here. The HillBill machine is coming right up your doorstep.

    Funny how these theories re-appear? It's Politics as usual Clinton style.

    I bow to your mastery and brilliance. Keep on Writing!!!

    Source(s): I am a former International Flight Service Manager/Instructor for Continental Airlines airplane security was my job/my life depended on it 911 was long ago planned airplanes are bombs the rest is all nonsense and sadness as far as I am concerned

    If it was heat that brought the buildings down, they wouldn't have imploded. All four sides, with all the beams encased, couldn't have faulted to the point that it would come down evenly. If heat was the case, then the building would have fallen at the side of point entry. You, wanting to believe that airplanes were able to fly off course for over 45 minutes without being stopped is an issue you should tend to.
