seriously, does anyone really believe that explosives were placed at the base or anywhere on the tower?As far as conspiracy theories go, this has to be one of the most ridiculous.Considering that this topic seems to be about a conspiracy theory, i will move it to new theories. If anyone objects it can always be moved.
Its got nothing to do with engineering, its a conspiracy theory as there is no evidence to prove otherwise.
For explosives to take out the towers would mean that somehow they knew that two planes were going to fly into the towers at the same floor that the explosives were planted which is ludicrous. What would have happened if one of the planes missed or was shot down or crashed ten floors higher or lower
How would any one get access to both buildings to plant them and be so sure they wouldn't get found planting them.And don't say the American secret services because do you really think they could trust Bin Laden to work with them and keep it quiet.
What happened to the explosions taking out the steel girders in the seconds before the towers collapsed. i didn't see anyAlso the initial colapse was probably concrete on to concrete and then once enough floors had collapsed on top of each other the metal framework of the building would have crumpled as it did ,you have got to remember each floor was made out of thousands of tons of concrete. Drop a thousand tons and nothing gonna stop it.
Could the terrorists have put bombs in the planes, instead?
Here's adefinition of the word theory cribbed from wiki.ScienceIn scientific usage, a theory does not mean an unsubstantiated guess or hunch, as it can in everyday speech. A theory is a logically self-consistent model or framework for describing the behavior of a related set of natural or social phenomena. It originates from or is supported by experimental evidence (see scientific method). In this sense, a theory is a systematic and formalized expression of all previous observations which is predictive, logical and testable. In principle, scientific theories are always tentative, and subject to corrections or inclusion in a yet wider theory. This fairy tale about the explosives isn't a scientific theory by this definition. Can we set up a suitable place for it to be moved to?
What was holding the girders together? Ordinary bolts. There's your answer. You don't need buckling of the girders themselves if the bolts break.
Yes - It's odd how they don't think their conspiracy theory through. If you work them through to their logical conclusions, they invariably collapse. With or without explosives.
It's odd that you say "they invariably collapse. With or without explosives" when only 3 highrise steel framed buildings have ever completely collapsed ultimately due to fire, and they all occcured on 9/11.

"It's odd that you say "they invariably collapse.

Here is this part of the conspiracy debunked:Conspiracy Theorists bring up the fact that the towers were the first steel high rises to fall from fire in history. The fact is the towers had other firsts that day they never seem to include. [nofollow]
