I should note here that ergo is known to me only through quotations.

No, you are wrong.

Twoofers have said for years that the buildings wouldn't have started to collapse unless the columns melted.

People with functioning brains have attempted to explain, over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over again, that it wasn't necessary in the slightest for the columns to melt.

People with functioning brains NEVER bring up "jet fuel & melted columns".

I posted 17 instances where the idjits at AE911T are STILL blathering about this idiocy.

So, Dave was right.

You are wrong.

... and the world is as it should be.

PS. Oh, shame. Another troll gets suspended.

Quel surpris...!

Maybe Ergo can spend his time correcting colloquial usage of the the words melt and melting elsewhere on the internet now that he's been banned. Maybe start with this Salvador Dali one about "melting" watches

I respect the opinion of others, honestly I do. But this is like the 100th time in my life I've seen a "OMG FUNNY XKCD COMIC!" thread at some point, somewhere.. and read it.. and been like



I don't get why people find these funny.. I've never found a single one funny. Not a single one. They all seem trying too hard to be clever. But always falling short. Like.. clever for dumb people.

I'm sorry, but I don't get the craze. Same with those god awful penny arcade comics.

I felt the same way about King of the Hill, then I learned it was aimed at Texans and southerners. It simply wasn't made for me.

As a Midwesterner, I find King of the Hill hilarious, especially Dale and his Conspiracy Theories.

Looks like "banned" was a temporary mis-print.

Gosh, I see that AE911T are doing all they can to show the irrelevance to the truth movement of the "jet fuel melts steel" strawman.

Dave

Hey, the results of the Toronto Hearings are published!

Here's Consensus Point #2 of 13:
Quote:
Point 2: A Claim about the Destruction of the Twin Towers: Impact, Jet Fuel, and Fire Only


The Official Account

The Twin Towers were brought down by airplane impacts, jet fuel, and office fires.

The Best Evidence

Experience, based on physical observation and scientific knowledge, shows that office fires, even with the aid of jet fuel, could not have reached temperatures greater than 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit (1,000 degrees Celsius).
But multiple scientific reports show that metals in the Twin Towers melted. These metals included steel, iron, and molybdenum – which normally do not melt until they reach 2,700˚F (1482˚C), 2,800˚F (1538˚ C), and 4,753˚F (2,623˚C), respectively.

How to summarize this? How about the title of this very thread: "Jet Fuel Can't Melt Steel".

ergo, your heroes have abandoned you. Feeling lonely yet?

I see Marokkaan has alerted us to another strawman video, produced by enemies of the truth movement, also trying to propagate the canard that truthers think that "the official story" requires jet fuel to melt steel. This fake truther, someone called Jonathan Cole, clearly is setting out to discredit the entire movement. Look what he says:



Clearly he must be a plant, because no real truther thinks this.
