“the floor system in the twin towers did not take any of gravity load of the building”

Precisely. The floor systems were never intended to take the weight of the structure above – someone needs to ram this home to people like Gage.

Of course when the vertical columns got out of line at collapse initiation, a floor system or two is precisely what would be the next line of defence against collapse. No chance.
