absolute proof of the controlled demolition of WTC7

Editors note: WTC7 – a 47 story steel building, collapsed into it’s own footprint at the freefall speed of gravity at 22:20 GMT on  9/11/2001. The collapse, along with the cause of the collapse, was announced 26 minutes prior to the actual collapse at 21:54 GMT live on air by the BBC News. WTC7 was not hit by a plane, and the collapse of wtc7 was not mentioned in the 911 commission report. A steel framed skyscraper has never in history collapsed in this way due to fire or by any cause other than controlled demolition.

Carl Sagan famously said “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence”.  I present to you extraordinary evidence in the form of science. Amid all the endless talk and political posturing regarding what happened in NYC on 911, no one had the ability to change or alter the laws of physics on that day.

All truth passes through three stages.  First, it is ridiculed.  Second, it is violently opposed.  Third, it is accepted as self-evident.” – Arthur Schopenhauer, philosopher

Conspiracy theories? Meet me, a skeptic. It takes a lot of evidence to convince me of anything. I have a background in engineering and science, and I graduated with high honors from a prestigious university. I spent 10 years of my life working among engineers, scientists and software engineers at IBM. I understand, and have a fairly comprehensive knowledge of  science and engineering. For those of you without advanced degrees in math or physics, I would like to state something very simply. A multi level structure cannot collapse at the free fall speed of gravity without first having the underlying support structure removed faster than the freefall speed of gravity.

The physical laws of nature cannot be changed, altered or suspended. They prevent any structure from collapsing upon itself at the freefall speed of gravity and indeed, in the history of the world there has never been a case of it. Furthermore, buildings do not, and have never collapsed exactly into their own footprint without a tremendous amount of skill and engineering to precisely size, coordinate and time the synchronized explosions down to the microsecond. The analysis I provide via this youtube video below, offers conclusive proof that wtc7 was demolished.

That opens a whole can of worms.

EarthBlog News will now join Isaac Newton, the majority of the US population, 1000 Engineers and Architects for 911 truth, NYC Firefighters for 911 Truth, Pilots for 911 Truth, Senior Military Intelligence Service Law Enforcement and Government Officials, a growing list of US congressmen and many other public figures in the US and outside the US in calling for a new, independent investigation to find out what really happened on 911 and who was responsible for the controlled demolition of WTC7.

False flag
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
False flag operations are covert operations which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time

Governments ADMIT  That They Carry Out False Flag Terror
Forget the claims and allegations that false flag terror – governments attacking people and then blaming others in order to create animosity towards those blamed – has been used throughout history. This essay will solely discuss GOVERNMENT ADMISSIONS to the use of false flag terror.

American foreign and defense policy is adrift. Conservatives have criticized the incoherent policies of the Clinton Administration.

They have not set forth guiding principles for American foreign policy. They have allowed differences over tactics to obscure potential agreement on strategic objectives. And they have not fought for a defense budget that would maintain American security and advance American interests in the new century.

America’s Broken Media And The Collapse Of World Trade Center 7

by Eric deCarbonnel
Thursday, May 20, 2010
When reading the articles below, keep one question in mind: Do you find these allegations credible and serious enough to deserve media coverage? This question is crucial because the mainstream media has been ignoring (and in some cases actively trying to discredit) the facts and arguments below for years now. It is the job of a properly functioning media to investigate credible allegations about issues important to the people and determine their validity. America’s media appears to have failed so completely here that it should be considered completely broken, if not dead.

    I think the whole event is like the Kennedy Assassination. I don’t ever expect to know the truth because if it is true that it was a controlled demolition, then obviously it was a faction within the government itself and those same elements are never going to admit to it and continue to cover it up. Unfortunately I think they did their whitewash investigation and that’s the end of it.

  3. February 16, 2010 at 4:01 am

    Bill, even if you’re right that they “are never going to admit it”, you don’t necessarily have to rely on an “admission” by “them” to know or at least get a glimpse of the truth. Otherwise we would be even more screwed than we are. The criminal justice system to does not routinely rely on confessions alone to solve/prosecute crimes.

    I haven’t seen the video yet (filtered at my work), but the evidence has stated that it DID NOT collapse at free fall speed. Most estimate it at 15-16 seconds. I am suspicious of WTC 7 myself, but wanted to see your rebuttal to this common anti conspiracy view.

    • February 19, 2010 at 5:42 pm

      My rebuttal is, watch the video. The video is the point of the post. I would also like to note that of all the EarthBlog posts, this one has gained the most traction and it’s the only post out of many controversial posts that is being actively spammed. Interestingly, the Pentagon has a multi billion dollar budget allocated to “influencing opinion on the internet”.

    I have watched all the videos presented. As a fellow engineer, after watching the featured video, the only argument I would have is the possibility that the author of the featured video committed some sort of hoax.

    Following watching the remaining videos presented however, especially 7 is exploding, I find overwhelming evidence that you are indeed correct with your conclusion. If I was on a jury watching this evidence, I would not have a reasonable doubt that the building came down in a controlled demolition.

    I would like to add that you have separated yourself from a great many of the so called “conspiracy theorists”, by sticking to the physics. Although disturbing, this is a very influential piece.

    • February 19, 2010 at 7:56 pm

      Good comment, thanks. I have considered the credibility aspect before I wrote the post. In my due diligence to convince myself, looked through his other postings, read his comments, and I found nothing that would undermine his credibility or make me think he has some sort of ulterior motive. There is quite a bit more freefall analysis on youtube and other places, but this author was using the most sophisticated tools and had the most bulletproof analysis of anything else I have seen. He’s a teacher.

      As another comment noted, Gage is also a very credible figure. So are the controlled demolition experts interviewed in the Italian Video, Seven is Exploding. That video aired on the largest TV Network in Italy.

    I’m not an engineer, and I may not be the smartest person in the world, but I do have common sense. I found the gage vid to be really interesting. He compared wtc7 directly with a controlled demolition and my common sense says they were both controlled demolitions. I also found gage to be very credible. Also, with this kind of evidence floating around, you have to ask, where is the MSM? Never mind, I also watched the BBC video.

    • February 19, 2010 at 7:46 pm

      Regarding the MSM, or “corporate media” as I prefer to call them, I would like to note that every spam comment to this post has included the word “truther” or “conspiracy theorist” and other corporate media concocted derogatory terms, while not criticizing the actual content of the post itself. They are all personal attacks. If you are reading these comments, please also read the edit:adds regarding the pentagon budget for influencing opinion on the internet. Also, you would probably benefit from reading “a citizens guide to understanding corporate media propaganda”, linked in the sidebar and at the top of this blog. This is currently the most popular post on the site.

    This is an interesting post to say the least. I found myself asking, “but why”? and then I read the edit add link that Governments admit they carry out false flag terror and also the link about Operation Northwoods. As the other comment said, I also found the Gage video to be very credible.

    As I understand it from going through this material, WTC7 was not even mentioned in the 911 commission report and to me that is a smoking gun right there and certainly a reason to ask for something more than a rubber stamp investigation. Why don’t I know all this already?

    The only thing I need to be convinced it was a controlled demo is pair of eyes.

    Thanks for putting it all together like this though.

    I think way more people disbelieve the official story than the MSM lets on. As you pointed out, there isn’t even an official story for a 47 story skyscraper collapsing into it’s own footprint. Ridiculous. They’ll never investigate or admit the truth because they don’t have to.

    I agree with the comments that far, far more people question the official story than the MSM lets on. The official story doesn’t even make sense. “if it walks like a duck”..

    I also agree that the MSM is never going to do a serious investigation, and neither is the government. If the heat gets too much, they’ll just do another rubber stamp.

    March 10, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    You have to wonder why with so many credible people and organizations questioning the government version of the attacks, why does the MSM launch like an attack dog at anyone who has questions? When I combine that thought with the BBC broadcasting the collapse 20 minutes early, it makes me highly suspicious that the MSM was and still is a co conspirator in the whole affair. I don’t know who is responsible, but I know something really stinks to high heaven about this whole deal. Add me to the list of people who want answers.

  18. March 10, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    Hi Terry. Thanks for the comment. I agree it is very suspicious how the corporate media acts towards people looking at a stack of “evidence” that violates the laws of physics and common sense and has questions. They are immediately vilified and have their characters publicly assassinated by the media. Please read “a citizens guide to understanding corporate media propaganda techniques”. That may explain a few things.

    This does not need to quietly go away. This needs to stay in the forefront of our consciousness as we look at the world events unfolding presently. There might be manipulation of the middle eastern countries.
