Chris did not lie when he compared a steel column to a stick because he believes that is a reasonable comparison.
Yes I am. Chris is expressing his opinion but he does not have any evidence or data to back it up.
Incorrect. I present the evidence when I say they are lying.
Yes. There are many. At 0:26 Chris says "So lets finally investigate one of Richard's central claims, that the free fall collapse of part of the north face of building 7 is the silver bullet ..."
That is a misrepresentation of Mr. Gage's position.
Chris does then give Richard Gage's position, but after he has inserted his version of what was in free fall.
"My opponent must resolve the symmetrical free fall collapse of building 7 or the debate is over."
Chris tries to obfuscate the significance of the free fall acceleration of the entire upper portion of WTC 7 by comparing the 8 stories of FFA to the total number of floors that collapsed including the trade towers which are irrelevant to the collapse of WTC 7.
He states that "only one perimeter wall of 8 of those stories is known to have collapsed at free fall acceleration." He knows that is not true. We can see the north and west faces falling along with the screenwall and west penthouse which tells us that the majority of the interior falling is with them.
At 1:07 Chris says "Three buildings collapsed on 9/11. Each of the ten towers was 110 stories high ... Building 7 was 47 stories high and only one perimeter wall of 8 of those stories is known to have collapsed at
free fall acceleration. So out of the total of 267 floors collapsing, and 1 face of 8 of those floors coming down at free fall, engineers I've talked to say this is insignificant.
I have already responded to that.
