"Journal of 9/11 Studies" caught in a few more lies

The sorry state of affairs at the world’s most fraudulent Blog

We keep hammering on the Blog that masquerades as an “academic journal” known as http://www.journalof911studies.com/. The predictions I made in a SKEPTIC Magazine article have held out: their content has dried up, and when a wellspring does gurgle up from the muck, it’s something like its last entry, August 2nd’s, by the well-known fraud Kevin Ryan: The Top Ten Connections Between NIST and Nano-Thermites.

What is a nano-thermite, you ask? Well, as Ryan misinterprets it, it’s a teeny tiny version of a thermite mixture that is orders of magnitude more powerful than its larger-grained namesake. It wouldn’t be a Kevin Ryan entry without a lie or two, and he wastes no time:

The high surface area of the reactants within energetic sol-gels allows for the far higher
rate of energy release than is seen in “macro” thermite mixtures, making nano-thermites
“high explosives” as well as pyrotechnic materials (Tillitson et al 1999).

And, of course, if we actually go to the source he cites (warning: 255 pages long, one of which he uses), we find this claim to be absolutely untrue. A “high explosive” is something that explodes instead of burns. A “low explosive” is the opposite. The article specifically states that its authors are continuing to test the new mixture’s “rate of burn” and that “Thermitic reactions are extreme exothermic reactions that involve a metal reacting with a metallic oxide to form a more stable oxide and the corresponding metal of the reactant oxide,” virtually precluding anyone from honestly thinking that they’re talking about a high explosive.

But most damning of all, the second to last paragraph of the article Ryan uses states:

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) of this energetic nanocomposite showed an exotherm at ~260C, indicating that it is indeed energetic, whereas the trace for neat AP shows no exothermic reaction in the absence of the fuel skeleton.

Around two hundred and sixty degrees Celsius? Why, that’s cooler than the jet fuel!

How on earth could Kevin Ryan have missed this? Answer: he couldn’t have. No one could honestly be perusing legitimate resources to update their hysterical quasi-Blog and stumble across a mere one-page article, quote from all over it, and miss that one sentence. At the risk of being redundant, it appears that the 9/11 conspiracy theorists are once again trying to deliberately lie to people to give their personal beliefs a veneer of academic plausibility, which they so desperately need but so utterly lack.

Those kooks are finished. Their kookery needs to be left to die a natural death.

Wait, wasn't that what we said about the IDiots after Dover?

Oops. My bad.

FYI, it was not Atta's passport, it was Satam al Suqami. The Twoofers can't even get that little detail right.

I think you should testify against Dr. Ryan sometime. From this post, I suspect he would end up well vindicated.

Today, Hogan scarpe

. I’m not just simply raving about every skyscraping but hogan donna
. I'm totally in love with the fabulous sporty shoes like Hogan scarpe uomo

.Over the years the Breitling Watches
has evolved aesthetically and technically. Some would arguethat the currunt Evolution Breitling Avenger

An increasingly skeptical news media isn't buying into the hype of HD SIMON & SIMON

I have a friend that told me about that because I'm a person that love to post on blogs and he told me that I had to be careful with that situation so now I decided to spend my time on Viagra Online

It's clear that you do not have a clue of how a Differential scanning calorimeter works. For starters the 260C is a negative value. If you had any grasp of chemical thermodynamics, you would know this as well.

This is why experts are given a higher credibility than uneducated tweets like yourself. The only person caught in a lie, is the author of this post acting like he knows what he is talking about.

Where an exothermic reaction causes heating of the reaction vessel which is not controlled, the rate of reaction can increase, in turn causing heat to be evolved even more quickly . This positive feedback situation is known as thermal runaway. An explosion can also result from the problem.

Why did you not pay attention to what you were reading: "indicating that it is indeed energetic". Thermate can be sealed in a conduit type pipe, and when heated by external thermate source it would easily act as the fuse and you have a "High Explosives" there are multiple youtube videos that demonstrate this manner of High Explosives.

Kevin R. Ryan was terminated from his job for questioning the official story of the World Trade Center collapse while employed at
Environmental Health Laboratories Inc., a subsidiary of Underwriters Laboratories Inc. Fortunately there are still some Americans, unlike the author of this article, who had the backbone to stand-up at great sacrifice.

"The way things are working in the country right now," Kubiak added, "it's only going to be citizens like this who take their professional knowledge and sense of personal integrity, and put it ahead of the strange status quo, that we will see truth and justice out of the system."

It is irresponsible individuals like those here that serve as the greatest obstruction to us finding out who murdered our family members.
