Nice try but....
“Since you seem obsessed with my simple grammatical error “
Nope, I’m demonstrating your logical error; I have already made this clear. You’ve made many errors which I haven’t highlighted.
“Hmmm, seems to fit the definition of logical fallacy well.”
Why? You can’t just state that is does. What is the flaw?
The difference between you and me is that I have explained your logical fallacy whereas you, again, are unable to.
“what sources are you citing that observed this imagined damage?”
Imagined? It is well accepted that the area within the ‘bathtub’ underneath suffered damage – unless you are even disputing this?
The upper floors could not stop the fall of a fraction of a skyscraper, given this what is the probability of the underground floors stopping the whole scraper from collapsing it?
Did you know the towers were built on reclaimed land? Does this suggest anything of significance to you?
“If you read carefully (hard for you I know, in your rush to criticize) you will see I never said it WAS an accidental press release.”
Previously you also said: “I know many of you do not believe in any alternative theory pertaining to the WTC collapse. I am curious how you would explain this video...”
Your motives are crystal clear. By linking the video you have attempted to give your ‘alternative’ views credibility; you failed.
“Who said anything about evil henchmen? I certainly didn't.”
You believe in the alternative theories right? What are these if they don’t involve planning or cover-ups? Why did you link that video?
OK, let’s put this to bed - do you or do you not lend credence to the notion that the collapse of WTC7 was planned and accidentally leaked? (as per the video you linked)
Hence I know some facts that others clearly don’t.
“Again, you ignore the glaring flaw in your own point, the fact that you are using your own assumption as an argument, that is what's laughable. Clear?”
My reasoning (which you cutely call ‘assumptions’) are based on fact and logic, something you have not been able to counter on any level except to say ‘no it aint’. If you can’t find a flaw with it then just say so!
“You try so hard to sound smart.”
That is a basic rule of logic. If you don’t understand that then there’s really no hope for you.
“Yet again, you conveniently ignore the point I am making, that you are making many assumptions. Assumptions don't hold water, sorry.”
Nope! You miss my original point. I have given fact based reasoning.
Also, you again claim my answers as false but seem to skirt around why you believe them to be so – you cannot claim to have made any point.
“I am open to new ideas, not suggestions based on imagined underground collapses”
A self-contradiction (unless you have already considered these possibilities, in which case what grounds do you have to dismiss them or render them as being unlikely?)
Hateful? Rhetoric? Oh dear! Now you’re at the bottom of the barrel.
"You haven’t hypothesized anything at all (pro or con)...."
“Thank you for noticing,”
You at last admit that you haven’t given any reasoning behind your claims of my hypotheses being invalid.
“however do you care to name the collapses of the other 107 story buildings of the same construction and materials with the implied different "causal events"?”
Irrelevant! We are focussing on what is, not what isn’t.
"why don’t you comment on my ‘formulation of the hypotheses’"
Go on then. Quoting more from Google doesn’t make it happen!
“However you seem to be lacking on the testing end of things, good old step four of the scientific method. Without conclusive tests and verification, your arguments hold about as much water as a sieve, steve. And back to square one.”
Just let me get my spare 747………anyone got a spare skyscraper? Even then you would think the experiment rigged if it didn’t meet your prejudice.
This is your position summed up nicely. You see, we (or at least some of us) are able to deduce cause and effect, or have an appreciation of the likelihood of, based on accepted knowledge or experience and reason. Much of scientific theory was accepted (at least as a representative model) long before there was a way of testing for the actual existence of it.
I have given you probable explanations based on good physics so satisfying criteria 1, 2 and 3, whereas you have not satisfied any of the 4 but somehow feel you are in the position to pass judgement on my hypotheses. How can that be?
In fact, all you are doing is basing your opinions on the (IMO flawed) arguments of some who give you hope that there is a global conspiracy; you’re blind to anything else.
Me: I have the ability to reason and make an informed and balanced judgement – I can make up my own mind!
Now let me put it to you all: if not due to the planes (fire and impact), what do you believe caused the collapse of the buildings?
