"The Destruction of the World Trade Center: Why the Official Account Cannot Be True"

On October 15th and 16th, 2005, in the Anthology Film Archives and St. Mark's Church in New York City, theologian David Ray Griffin delivered this address. Griffin's presentation focuses on one of the most powerful indictments of the official story - the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7. In this speech, Griffin cites many aspects of the collapses which are consistent with demolition, including unique characteristics of the collapses, excerpts from the recently released firemen's tapes, and some of the many contradictions in the official version of events.

excerpt:

The Collapse of the Twin Towers

Shortly after 9/11, President Bush advised people not to tolerate "outrageous conspiracy theories about the attacks of 11 September." Philip Zelikow, who directed the work of the 9/11 Commission, has likewise warned against "outrageous conspiracy theories." What do these men mean by this expression? They cannot mean that we should reject all conspiracy theories about 9/11, because the government's own account is a conspiracy theory, with the conspirators all being members of al-Qaeda. They mean only that we should reject outrageous theories.

But what distinguishes an outrageous theory from a non-outrageous one? This is one of the central questions in the philosophy of science. When confronted by rival theories---let's say Neo-Darwinian Evolution and Intelligent Design---scientists and philosophers of science ask which theory is better and why. The mark of a good theory is that it can explain, in a coherent way, all or at least most of the relevant facts and is not contradicted by any of them. A bad theory is one that is contradicted by some of the relevant facts. An outrageous theory would be one that is contradicted by virtually all the relevant facts.
