Re: How can you tell?
I am presuming that the gas station owner would have a finer sense of the appropriate words to use. It would be interesting to know how many minutes.
Provide a primary source for this claim.
The Mitchell 25D that hit the Empire state building had a wingspan of 67'7" and had a maximum take off weight of 35,000 lbs and cruises at about 180mph. The 757 has a wingspan of 124'10", has a max take off weight of 255,000lbs and cruises at about 500mph.
What is your point here? Incredulity is not evidence. Do you have anything from a structural engineer to back your suspicions?
Don't you find it even a little odd for that glass to be there right in the middle of the impact hole?
Do you think the Pentagon uses house quality glass for windows?
No Doc. Very obviously not crashing. Instead it is placing your 500 mph 757 precisely where you intend it to be. Remember, 1500ft is 2.046 seconds at 500mph.
Again, your personal incredulity is evidence of nothing. Give us something from an aviation expert saying that with the training he had he could not have piloted a plane into the ground.

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Pilots(and anyone else that wants to sign up) for truth
More yucks from the Pilots For Truth List.
Not surprisingly many of them are not pilots.
Also it seems anyone could sign the list. Even fictional characters.

I guess this could be a real person but it is also the exact name of the main character in some of the books from Isaac Asimov's Robot Series.

"... employed by the Airline Industry, I am a long time aircraft enthusiast, and have flown extensively on private and commercial aircraft.
Well heck he flys alot. I am sure he can tell us all about the ability to fly into the Pentagon.
14 flight attendants, 6 air traffic controllers. How is their opinion relevant?
Here is the kicker. Anyone with a remote connection to the aviation industry can join and have their name added to this prestigious list.

If you have as many questions as our members have regarding 9/11, the catalyst which changed the world, please feel free to join us in speaking out. Pilots For 9/11 Truth welcomes anyone with experience in Aviation. Pilots, Mechanics, Flight Attendants, CSR, Ramp, Ticket Agents, Engineers, or College Students studying same.
Join Pilots For 9/11 Truth
Come on. Does anyone actually think these guys have some legitimate argument to stand on? They are misrepresenting themselves form the get go.
Yup. When I want to know the intricacies about flying a commercial jet, I make sure I talk to those ramp attendants and ticket agents.

Re: Here is a Conspiracy Theory from the Secular Humanist Website
Faith used to think that the liberals blamed Trump for everything. Some liberals did.
Some conservatives think they should be able to enslave other humans.
See what I did.

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Here is a Conspiracy Theory from the Secular Humanist Website
The they I am referring to in the first comment.
Kinda makes you wonder why they insisted that Gods name be placed on money.
Posting one reply to multiple comments that are vastly different is extremely disingenuous. Trying to combine my posts to make me look inconsistent just makes you look like the deceptive, untrustworthy person you have become.

Phat the troll
I noticed the post because you zombied the thread. You responded to a 2019 post because you have to resurrect settled threads. Fuck you for accusing me of what you do. Fuck off you persistent and amoral troll.
