So I've had a chance to listen to some of the Richard Gage and Dave Thomas debate and thought I'd add a few things to the already stellar debunking job of Gage and others.
Pat Curley of the Screw Loose Change blog posted this bingo card mocking the evidence that Gage would raise.
Let's examine an important one there in the last row and see if Thomas can prove it's BS. In this clip he states that his colleagues made some thermite for him and that "there is no such thing as unreacted thermite, that's like being half-pregnant."
However, the peer-reviewed scientific paper Thomas refers to reports to have found a nano-engineered variant of thermite known as super-thermite, or nano-thermite, in dust from the WTC, which contains an organic substance "expected for super-thermite formulations in order to produce high gas pressures upon ignition and thus make them explosive."
If Thomas's colleagues would have made some of this material as Kevin Ryan has, they would have found that it does leave unignited fragments behind after the reaction takes place. Here is a 26 picture slide show Ryan produced, half of the images are nano-thermite residues and half are materials extracted from WTC dust samples. Can you tell us which ones are which, Mr. Thomas?
Looks like nobody is getting a T pattern!
As Steven Jones has noted, thermate (thermite plus sulfur added to lower the melting point of steel) was also detected chemically, he states, "Thermite incendiary without sulfur is not in evidence at the WTC to date... But sulfur is NOT needed for the function of explosive nanothermite and would not be expected to appear in the red/gray chips."
These distinctions are what Gage was referring to when he said that there was evidence of "ordinary thermite and nano-thermite" during the interview. The evidence for thermate includes another item on the bingo card labeled as "Eutectic/Swiss Cheese," which refers to the sulfidation and melting of steel from WTC 7. One of Gage's engineers recently conducted an experiment on this which forced 9/11 "debunker" Dr. Frank Greening to admit he was wrong about it.
Damn, there goes a diagonal and the X!
In this clip Thomas states that "nobody that's not in the 9/11 truth movement is alarmed or surprised by" the iron-rich spheres found in the WTC dust. Yeah Dave, that's because when people realise that by-products such as these are produced by thermite variants, and find that there are no other good explanations for their presence, and learn that the materials from the WTC in the slide show above actually produce these spheres when heated up, they automatically become members of the movement!
This one wasn't on the card, and I just want to listen to the rest of this debate without having to type a book, so I'm going to make this quick and start you off with a search on this blog for the first one "Freefall Speed." Go from there and yell bingo at some point if you want, but I'll be yelling bullshit right after.
