1,000 Architectural and Engineering Professionals Chasing a Moving Goalpost

Architect Richard Gage's organization Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth now has over 1,000 members. Our "debunker" friends over at the Screw Loose Change blog thought a congratulations was in order:

"Great job, Richard! We look forward to the grand celebration of your 2000th senile architect..."

Don't foget those 29 senile Structural/Civil Engineers:

29 Structural/Civil Engineers Cite Evidence for Controlled Explosive Demolition in Destruction of All 3 WTC High-Rises on 9/11...

From the article:

A Note About 9/11 "Debunkers"

It could be hoped that the comments from the structural engineers quoted in this article would silence the 'debunkers' who dismissed our arguments first because, allegedly, no engineers agreed with us. That was never true to begin with. After AE911Truth was formed and scores of engineers signed the petition, these debunkers predictably moved the goalposts, saying we didn't have any engineers who know anything about heavy steel structures such as tall buildings. Since the 29 engineers interviewed for this article do in fact possess that knowledge, the goalposts will no doubt just be moved again. This kind of behavior should make clear the nature of the game that is being played. One word for it is sophistry.

Moving the goalposts is a logical fallacy. JREFers should try taking their own advice sometime.

Oh, and also don't forget (because being senile he probably will) that former NASA aerospace research engineer Dwain Deets announced today that 60 aerospace engineers have joined the ranks of ae911truth.
