So, the thermate slowly melts the columns. But that's not enough. Why is that not enough? Why didn't they just use more silent thermate? Okay, they ran out. So they used explosives.
So they smuggled in tons of explosives and equipment (remember, Gage is claiming that "squibs" farther down on the tower were made by explosives), tore out walls to gain access to exterior and core columns on many floors, created special thermate holders to keep that substance in contact with the steel, created magic timers and protection containers to allow the thermate and explosives to withstand the impact of an airliner and subsequent enormous fires, cleaned up everything, repaired the damage they'd done, and they and their incredibly disruptive work remained completely undetected.
You've sold me so far.
Okay, what kind of semi-silent explosives were used, Deep, that are large enough to toss huge steel columns
, as you and Gage say, but are otherwise undetectable by sight, sound, and seismometers, and that did not
eject huge amounts of lighter debris for great distances at high velocities? And please explain how neither thermate nor explosives left any mark on any steel that was examined by investigators or is visible in photographs.
By the way, Gage's claim of 118 first responders hearing explosives is complete b.s.: http://forums.randi.org/showpost.php...83&postcount=1
So you think that when a quarter-mile high building collapses from the top
, parts of its structure shouldn't fall away from the center?
Here's a video you need to watch. Pay particular attention to the inward buckling of the south tower's east wall as the collapse commences. Note that there are no explosions and no outward ejection of smoke and debris. Explain how this fits into your conspiracy theory.

Finally, be sure to read Ryan Mackey's paper (particularly pages 95-97), which puts these myths to rest for good:
No more excuses, Deep, and no more arguments from ignorance. Get informed or get lost. Now get to work.
