More 9/11 "Truther" Stupidity

 Unless otherwise indicated, all quotes come from here: which exposes the “truthers” questionable understanding of physics:

 Quote 1: ***MARCH***

Try this.

Stack four eggs one on top of the other. Glue them together and make a tower out of them. Ensure the structure is stable and will not topple.

Now break the top egg. Hit it with your spoon and simulate an aircraft hitting it.

Will the three eggs below the top egg break all the way to the floor?

No because the mass of the top egg will be diffused and free to deflect around the shells of the lower eggs.

Exactly like the towers. ”

            Eggs are NOT the Twin  Towers. They contain the yolk and egg white which are LIQUIDS, unless they’re hard-boiled, in which case they’d be solid.  The WTC contained mostly air, which is a GAS.

Quote 2:***APRIL***

All properly designed building implosions fall faster than gravity because they are “pulled” downward by vacuum. You don’t think things can fall faster than gravity? Throw a ball into the ground.”

            What this guy doesn’t mention is that an object requires ASSISTANCE to fall faster than gravity. Take two identical balls and drop one, while simultaneously throwing the other down.  Once the balls leave your hand, only gravity’s acting on them. Yes, the ball that was thrown hits the ground first, but it’s not accelerating any faster than the ball that was dropped. The thrown ball merely has a larger initial velocity.

Quote 3 ***JULY***

24 carat nonsense. In order for gravity to work, you need a source of GRAVITY.”

     What’s the earth, chopped liver?

Quote 4***AUGUST***

When Galileo said that the world was round and not flat, he was locked up for the last few years of his life for saying it. But a few years after his death, it went from being widely accepted it was flat to being widely accepted it was round. And so I’m saying the world is round and I’m saying 9/11 is an inside job and I’m showing that the official story is a fraud, a flat Earth theory, and I know I’m going to be vindicated. ”

     Alex Jones can’t even get his historical figures right.  COLUMBUS said the world was round, not flat.  Galileo was persecuted for saying the earth revolves around the sun.

     Judy Wood states in interview with Jim Fezter, at 27:15 into the first hour( See  http://screwloosechange.blogspot.com/2006/06/jim-fetzer-condemns-all-structural.html and http://forums.randi.org/showpost.php?p=1737128&postcount=916,)

“…And one thing that struck me about the World Trade Centers is that they are very much like trees. Core, outer core, inner core. A tube within a tube design, and that is what allows a tree to wave in the breeze.”
     Judy Wood forgets one detail- TREES AREN’T HOLLOW, while the WTC was.  After all, buildings have to be hollow in order to get people, furniture, etc. into them.
