Gourley also notes that the online journal, 'The Journal of 9/11 Studies,' has published refutations of many of the unscientific claims such as these.

"Scientists have responded to these outlandish claims in writing. Their refutations have undergone peer review and have been approved prior to publication.." The Fetzer/Wood/Reynolds claims are unable to withstand any serious scientific scrutiny.

His own group's submission, Gourley points out, is the first one which seriously addresses specific and significant aspects of the Report, rather than only minor details or making nonsense appeals.

Physicist Steven Jones says, "Our submission asks some very crucial questions which are necessary for any scientific Report, regardless of what our own positions are on what happened."

Architect Richard Gage, AIA agrees. "Here's one of the grossest examples," he says, "While the NIST-sponsored UL floor assembly fire tests demonstrated only 2 to 4 inches of sag with no failure at 2,000 degrees for 2 hours, NIST never-the-less used 42 inches of sag in their computer models and concluded failure! These are very basic inconsistencies and suggest some serious data integrity problems."

And one problem the group comes back to is that few have taken the time to comb through the massive Report. The likely reality, they say, is that most people assume that what's contained in the approximately 10,000 pages is correct because, "Frankly," Gage says, "people have been paid a lot of money - and these are the 'experts'. They weren't looking at the more reasonable hypothesis of controlled demolition. Instead, they just worked the numbers backwards until their desired conclusion - collapse by fire - was supported."
