When the central core destroyed by the airplane impact and resulting fire, the weight was transfered to the outer wall, and when part of that failed the load on the rest instantly increased leading to rapid failure and a "neat" collapse. What is the alternative theory, that there were timed explosives already stashed in the upper floors to trigger the collapse? C'mon.

Many scientists have adopted or reinvented Occam's Razor as in Leibniz' "identity of observables" and Isaac Newton stated the rule: "We are to admit no more causes of natural things than such as are both true and sufficient to explain their appearances."
The most useful statement of the principle for scientists is,
"when you have two competing theories which make exactly the same predictions, the one that is simpler is the better."
