Without derailing the thread too much, I have to say that the reasons for not looking at a controlled demolition theory is more of a psychological reason than a logical one. This is not just restricted to members of this forum and of course, this is not applicable to everyone single person who doesn't believe in CD theories.
As in our anomolies post, there are many things which the official collapse theories (NIST, Bazant et all) ignores or can't explain.
If the same time was spent looking and working on a controlled demolition theory, I can guarantee that we would not have as many anomalies unexplained.
I'm not a scientist, but I can offer no other explanation as to why those who are in the field of science, object to these alternative theories so strongly. That could be down to my lack of scientific knowledge, but from my limited understanding, the scientific arguments against a controlled demolition appear to be without little to no merit.
And no matter what is discovered with each new analysis, (Like Major Toms discovery) there are those who still strongly object to looking into a demolition theory.

I wouldn't call it mythology from the truth movement, it is something of a reoccurring theme through those I would label as pseudo-skeptics, like those who call themselves debunkers at the JREF Forum. I have witnessed this 1st hand in posting on forums more times than I care to mention.
The implications of a conspiracy is too frighten for some people to even consider as a possibility to the point that they will lie to themselves and others, in order to hold onto the belief that the official story is true.
This is coming from my own personal experience and as that of an observer.

I'm sure there are some who have a better scientific basis for their opinion, but not every single unexplained phenomenon is account for.
I would be interested in the scientific explanation for the chunk that Major Tom as discovered, but I get the feeling that this will be placed amongst the ever growing pile of unexplained things which the official collapse theory ignores for fear of what it possibly shows us.
