9/11 and Building 7: Truth Comes Before Healing

Upon the 10th anniversary of 9/11, architect Richard Gage has produced a high-quality video showing the overwhelming evidence that explosives were used to take down Building 7 at the World Trade Center. The documentary, Architects and Engineers - Solving the Mystery of WTC Building 7, presents facts not addressed in the official government report and avoided by mainstream news.

According to one of the 9/11 family members, "We were all victims." Another family brought up the issue of national healing. There can be no real resolution, closure and healing as a nation until the truth is investigated. If this type of truth is avoided, then what kind of society are we really living in? What's to prevent the same type of thing from happening on a wider scale?

As Richard Gage put it, "It's distressing to everyone to come to terms with this evidence. But we must pursue the truth wherever it leads. Look at the evidence and decide for yourself."

After viewing the details, you realize the main culprit here probably isn't Islam and religious zealotry. No, it has more to do with the extreme effects of moral relativism and twisted neoconservativism. The main question isn't "Who's been reading the Koran?" but "Who's been reading Nietzsche?" - That's what I want to know.


Syllogisms for September 11: Logic Doesn't Lie

9/11 Videographer at Ground Zero Goes Public



  1. A masterful piece of propaganda to avoid realization that we are in a sorry state of lack of knowledge of how to build fire safe high-rise buildings. The average architect has little knowledge of the numerous mechanisms affecting long-span steel floors. Such mechanisms include thermal bowing, thermal restrained expansion, thermal torsional-buckling, cooling contraction of sagging beams. All of these mechanisms produce tension on the connections that can tear out the connections or pull the columns into buckling.

  2. Hello Arthur,

    So, according to your note, all these degreed, licensed and professionally associated architects and engineers "are in a sorry state of lack of knowledge" but you, a firefighter, know how "thermal torsion buckling" can "tear out the connections or pull the columns into buckling." Why should I or anyone who reads this blog believe you are qualified to make structural engineering assessments? Do you have a degree in engineering?

    According to the documentary, all of the columns would have to have failed at the exact same moment in order for the building to fall in free-fall in the manner it did.

    Can you explain how all the columns in the building failed at the exact same moment when 1) The office fire in Building 7 was noted in only one corner of the building. 2) Office fires don't melt or bend steel. 3) The notorious office fire NIST noted in the corner of the building had already gone out.

    What is interesting, however, is that the central building core is the first area to begin collapsing, and it was not near the edge of the building where the small office fires took place. This is seen in the video of Building Seven's collapse. Also seen in the video are what appear to be numerous, instantaneous explosions all along the face of the building just before it collapses. These are especially visible on the right side of the building.

    What is your explanation?

    One of your fellow frefighters, Erik Lawyer, didn't seriously question the official government account until 2008. You may or may not be aware of his testimony, but I found it interesting. He ended up founding Firefighters for 9-11 Truth.

    Lawyer wrote:

    "The clincher for me was when I learned that the lead investigators on the crime - the FBI - do not even have the 9/11 attacks mentioned on the Bin Laden page of the FBI’s Most Wanted website list due to LACK OF EVIDENCE. How can it be that we were led to believe Osama bin Laden was responsible for the 9/11 attacks, yet the FBI doesn’t publicly accuse him? Remind me again why we are at war and have given up so many rights our Founding Fathers gave us???"

    It was reassuring for me to realize people are still coming to recognize that the facts don't support the official government story, even a decade after the incident occurred.

  3. Arthur,

    It's been a week since I asked you to verify your explanation and there's been no response. If anyone can show the readers of this blog how the official NIST report of the collapse of building 7 can be mathematically explained, I welcome it. The fact is, however, it is an impossibility. NIST admitted the building went into free-fall for the first 8 stories but has not explained, based on the laws of physics and engineering, how localized office fires can account for this.

    Perhaps, there is some reason, Arthur, why your ability to use critical thinking has been suspended? For many Americans, there is an unwillingness to admit the possibility that certain factions of our government would be capable of being involved in such a crime. But we will not know specifically who is guilty until this crime is investigated through an unbiased process. That's all we're asking for.

  4. You worry too much!

  5. Anonymous,

    I agree with the premises of the International 9/11 Hearings in Toronto and believe anyone interested in stemming the tide of civil rights abuses over the past ten years should learn the hard facts about 9/11 and help to spread the truth.
