    Good grief. Same old tired crap. Entirely unqualified engineering “analysis”. “Nano thermite blah blah.” No sources for evidence just garbage and oh yah “buy my book”.

    Superb performance, Marsh. I don’t know how you kept on task with all that he threw at you. Possibly my favorite Be Reasonable, although the last few have been really entertaining.

    Another masterclass in how encouraging a measured debate is the best way of revealing the truth. Treating the subject with respect while gently stepping through the holes in their argument is so much more productive than a who can shout the loudest contest. Once again the cap is doffed to you Marsh.

    You really should have asked him how it is possible for anything other than an aircraft in a powered dive to come down at a faster than free-fall speed?

    Micheal Marshall must have patience of a saint to sir and listen to that tripe. I enjoyed Marsh summarising the conspiracy at each stage as it became more and more ridiculous.

    Micheal Marshall must have patience of a saint to sit and listen to that nonsense. I enjoyed Marsh summarising the conspiracy at each stage as it became more and more ridiculous.

    Rothschilds.

    He lost me at Rothschilds.

    Actually he lost me at “hello,” but I really tuned him out as it slid into thinly veiled anti semitism and paranoia. All of his “proof” has been soundly debunked.

    You demonstrated outstanding restraint once again. This is a remarkable format and I get a lot out of every listen.

    Thank you for providing a venue where we can hear the ideas without going totally bonkers. It is because Marsh stays reasonable.

    Nanothermite cutting through structural steelwork plays a large role in 9/11 truther circles. Has anyone ever actually made a block of nanothermite and then used it to cut through some structural steelwork? I ask because this 2002 report (link to PDF: http://infohouse.p2ric.org/ref/34/33115.pdf ) about nanothermites says the research field is “young”, production is a “research area that still requires considerable effort” and these materials have “potential for major payoffs in weapons systems”; none of which screams “ready to be used as the centrepiece of a major operation” to me.
