Personally, I would have loved to have a larger audience, but the attendance of 165, including quite a few architects and engineers, I’m not complaining. Not surprisingly, the mainstream media excelled in not showing up.
Richard Gage’s lecture was supported with a very illustrative PowerPoint presentation, filled with revealing video material and a series of very convincing scientific explanations.
At the onset of his presentation, Gage took a poll, wondering how many people still believed in the official version of the events as portrayed by the US governement. About 20 hands went up. To the question how many people had doubts, a lot more hands went skyward.
When asked how many were convinced the destruction of the three buildings was due to ‘explosive controlled demolition’, the majority of the hands went up, proving we were dealing with an already pretty well informed audience.
After the poll, Gage started his explanation. He did so in a soft spoken, unbiased and unpartisan way. He is obviously a professional and never felt the need to dramatize: the facts speak for themselves. Gage did an excellent job uncovering the problems with the official explanation in a scientific way. No two ways about it!
Gage proved that fire (being an organic process) was unable to produce all of the characteristics that we saw, such as the straight-down, symmetrical collapse outside the footprint, the lateral ejection of structural steel up to 600 feet and the chemical evidence of thermite incendiaries among others.
He proved, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the buildings were destroyed by explosive controlled demolition.
After his two and a half hour lecture, Gage did his poll again. The number of people believing the official version was reduced to zero! The number of people in doubt was less than ten. The rest was convinced of the explosive demolition hypothesis.
After the lecture, Gage took many questions.
