I gave you a link to an elaborate report by Brent Blanchard, Operations Manager for Protec, a company that performs seismic monitoring services for explosive demolitions companies. An expert
in the field of "seismic recordings of controlled demolitions".
That company had seismic sensors strewn around Manhattan on 9/11/01.
Blanchard wrote up a detailed analysis on why NO explosive demolitions could possibly have happened on 9/11 and avoided being recorded on his seismometers.
Your response: Silence.
Not one word. You didn’t even bother to read the report from an expert on the topic that you keep screwing up, did you.
Now, you come back with … Adam Taylor.
Let me introduce you to the clueless moron that is Adam Taylor:

I DO know them. I taught them (& a lot more) to college engineering students.
Apparently he studied liberal arts & political science, and now works in “business services”.
In other words, he is 100% clueless about structural engineering, physics, building collapse … or any pertinent 9/11 field of study.
He has ZERO knowledge of any aspect of engineering.
He wrote a 5 part series that he claims “debunks” the Popular Mechanics “Debunking 9/11 Myths”.
The Popular Mechanics staff are EXPERTS in “writing fact based technical articles”. That’s what they do for a living. That’s what they get paid for.
Every one of the people listed below is an expert in the specific field of the questions which Popular Mechanics posed to them.
Popular Mechanics depended on the opinions of ZERO amateurs.
Let’s look at the references used by Popular Mechanics for their article:
From the 2006 book
"To investigate 16 of the most prevalent claims made by conspiracy theorists, POPULAR MECHANICS assembled a team of nine researchers and reporters who, together with PM editors, consulted more than 70 professionals in fields that form the core content of this magazine
, including aviation, engineering and the military.”

We’ve already seen Adam Taylor’s expertise in “writing fact based technical articles”:
He has none
We’ve seen his expertise in air crash analysis, Air Defense, Aviation, Image Analysis, Structural engineering and building collapse.
He has none
. In ANY of those topics.
But he feels qualified to “debunk” the opinions of experts in each of those fields.
So, let’s see the reference that Adam uses:
References for Part 1 of his Series:
i Quoted from: City in the Sky: The Rise and Fall of the World Trade Center by James Glanz and Eric Lipton, pg. 134-136
[James Glanz thinks that 9/11 Twoofers are morons, by the way.]
ii Quoted from: Twin Towers Engineered To Withstand Jet Collision, The Seattle Times
[Taylor doesn’t have the slightest f’king clue what he’s yammering about. I outlined why he is 100% wrong, here
iii For more information on the pre-9/11 claims about the Towers’ strength, see:
iv The following links provide arguments against the lobby damage being caused by explosives:
v The following link provides arguments against the lobby damage being caused by a jet fuel fireball:
vi This paper provides detailed measurements for how much fuel actually remained on the impact floors, and shows that the amount in either Tower was actually quite small in relation to each Tower, much less a single floor:
