starting to wonder if it's my own pc that's messed up here, I put apache on it and joomla, now I'm seeing joomla hosting pages...

Odd.

Anyone else having problems with that site ?

It must have been hacked...

Seriously though, for some reason the DNS is resolving to 127.0.0.1 which is localhost. It seems like a misconfiguration because the domain is renewed until February 2017.

Adding this line to my /etc/hosts lets me access the site:

69.89.22.141 www.debunking911.com

(in Windows that file is called /windows/system/drivers/etc/hosts rather than /etc/hosts)

We all know it's acceleration, and Web sites tend to follow Moore's Law in that respect I believe.

It's the amount of time it takes to say clunkety, clunkety, clunkety... 110 times IIRC.

You shouldn't need to ask if you're older than like twälf, but hey, they say there aren't stupid questions.

Wrong. Freefall is an acceleration, not a velocity.

Freefall is a phenomenon caused by gravity. Your acceleration here is g. Do the math. v is the speed with which the mess hits the ground. If you want the time it takes, go look up how to solve for t. h is the height of your horse.

One of the stoopitest pantomime debunking distractions ever.

To drive this home to even the twälf years old among the readers: h is the height of the towers in the argument about how they came down. As h is known, there never has been anything wrong with talking about "free fall speed". You just expect people to be able to solve an equation taught to twälf years old, or better you don't insult people's intelligence by pretending that they don't know that g is a constant (depending on where you are) if you are intending to engage in civilized debate.

That is the quality of 9/11 "debunking", good for a free fall joke in the clubhouse 15 years later. Congratulations.

No, you're wrong. Freefall means freely falling, i.e. falling so you are weightless, which means at the acceleration of gravity. 9.81 m/s2.

Feel free to be condescending and keep digging a hole, though. It's pretty entertaining for me.

If anyone wants to follow this "argument" developing (there's a twitter poll!), I've copied it over to the appropriate thread dealing with the Church of Free Fall. Good luck debunking911.com whatever it was/is/will be.

Better yet, get to my freefall thread:

ETA: Als0 Als0 funny, because in this forum I had a thread showing how freefall is not evidence for controlled demolition, and no Truther could come up with a valid counter to that claim. Would you be the first, CE, or just keep posting jokes to yourself?

There's a link in that post. I would put in a hyperlink to an article on hyperlinks to explain that concept, if you'd like. It's a basic concept for the hypertext transfer protocol.

Problems with physics, and acceleration; no wonder you fell for NoC fantasy.

The only way to save this, claim it was humor, like the clowns, CIT.

Mike Williams was contacted (not by me) about the site being down. He said he didn't know, but provided an alternative link to view it:

Isn't Mike Williams (MikeW) the owner of 911myths.com ? I don't know who runs debunking911.com but I'm pretty sure it's a different person.

Does anyone know who the owner is, in the first place?

I still can access it with the above modification to my /etc/hosts, which means that the hosting still runs.

If the owners do not know it is down then there is a serious problem. They should be moderating the site to make sure it is operating within normal parameters.

Which is NOT what truthers ever refer to. Instead it is the rate of collapse that is being referred to and THAT is an acceleration.

If you wish to argue a technical point then it would behoove you to get the simplest of technical details correct so as not to demonstrate illiteracy in the topic you are trying to discuss.
