From September 8 to September 11, 2011, a gathering of researchers, experts and activists converged on the campus of Ryerson University in Toronto to review what was then the most up to date information with regard to the ten year old tragedy.

Throughout the four day event, speakers challenged the views that the attacks were carried out by an outside enemy and that they were successful because of US intelligence failures. The visiting speakers from around the world would point to evidence that the Twin Towers were deliberately brought down using explosives. They would discuss the term ‘conspiracy theory’ and the consequent attempts to marginalize critics of the official story in mainstream media and culture. Crucially, they would make the case for a re-opening of an independent investigation into the attacks.

World Trade Center Collapses

How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”
Sherlock Holmes in The Sign of the Four by Arthur Conan Doyle

In his 2011 book AMONG THE TRUTHERS: A Journey Through America’s Growing Conspiracist Underground author Jonathan Kay deliberately avoids a discussion of evidence. He takes it as a given that the official story of 9/11 is correct and chooses instead to investigate the 9/11 Truth movement as a sociological and psychological phenomenon. He classifies Richard Gage, for example, as being motivated by ‘middle-age ennui.'[1]

Perhaps similar analyses could be directed toward historical figures like Darwin, Einstein and Galileo who similarly proposed views that contradicted what was believed in their time.

Whatever the psychological foibles or quirks of the researcher in question, this week’s speakers provide seemingly strong and sound arguments contradicting the official depiction of events.

Importantly, they make no claims like “Bush did it!” or “9/11 was an inside job!” They merely utilize evidence and the scientific method to reveal that controled demolition better explains the collapses of the three World Trade Center towers than does fire and gravity.

Whether or not this assertion is conclusive, it certainly makes a strong argument for the re-opening of a new investigation.

Richard Gage of the American Institute of Architects is a San Francisco-based architect and the founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. He has over 23 years of experience working with most types of building construction, including fire-proofed steel frame structures like the World Trade Center towers. Given his technical expertise, his numerous media apearances, his video Blueprint for Truth which has attracted a world-wide audience, and his compelling multi-media presentation, Gage has become among the 9/11 Truth movement’s most sought after figures. His Toronto presentation focused on evidence of the use of explosives in the collapse of the three World Trade Center towers.

David Chandler is a physics teacher with a Master of Science Degree in mathematics from the California Polytechnique State University Pomona. He has published lucid on-line articles on the physical principles observervable in the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers. In particular, his article WTC7: NIST Admits Free Fall focuses on the significant errors and discrepancies in the National Institute for Standards and Technology official explanation of this third collapse. It is these very errors and discrepancies that form the basis for Chandler’s talk on Day 3 (September 10) of the Hearings.

Graeme MacQueen received his PhD in Comparative Religion from Harvard University, and served as an instructor in McMaster University’s Department of Religious Studies. He is also a noted figure in the peace movement having helped found the McMaster Centre for Peace Studies in 1989. He is a recognized authority on aspects of the evidence relating to 9/11. His presentation centres on a compilation of eyewitness evidence of explosions in the collapses of the World Trade Center Twin Towers.

Efforts are afoot to bring greater awareness of the flaws in the official 9/11 story to a broader public audience this September through a grassroots advertising campaign. For more information, visit RETHINK911.org.
