Thermite or nanothermite charges were undoubtedly used in the destruction of the World Trade Centre Buildings. However, the use of these materials, forensically detected by independent scientists, does not exclude the use of other types of explosives.

What is not in question is the fact that the buildings were brought down using controlled demolition techniques. Gravity and fires cannot account for what was observed.

In reading some of the "debunkers," I have heard that one argument they make has to do with the sound of explosives. They say, well, explosives make a lot of noise, and since no one heard any such loud noise, apart from the noise of the falling of the Towers, there could not have been any explosions used to knock the Towers down. Hence, the claim that the Towers came down using explosives cannot be true.

Have you heard any such argument, and is your response to say that incendiaries were used, and incendiaries, like the nano-thermites, don't make any big impressive noises.

Yes, it is known that the incendiaries do not make much noise and that explosive thermite might be fairly quiet also.

Plus note that not all explosives cause massive amounts of noise. Controlled Demolition Inc. at some point, either in text or in an interview, admitted that noise levels could be controlled along with many other aspects of their work.

I would hasten to add that there WERE sounds of explosions. A few were extremely loud but most were not. Many people reported them (explosions) and there is some audio too. There is even the muffled sound of an explosion prior to WTC7 coming down - something the debunkers have denied, or tend to dismiss because it is not excessively loud.

The "debunker" claim that there were no sounds of explosions is hand waving.

Oh, and the fire investigation handbook often cited by the truthers says that sound should not be an overriding factor in making an assessment for explosive use in forensic investigations.
