More on 9/11

I was over at Stop the Lie yesterday where I found an article about a symposium that had taken place at UC Berkeley on Saturday. The all-day event, called Lifting the Fog was dedicated to examination of the destruction of the World Trade Center through real science and use of the Scientific Method.

This is exactly what I am talking about. I know people think I am a whacked-out conspiracy theorist. Fine – use whatever label you want. But the participants in the Lifting the Fog symposium are real scientists who have done real research and have found evidence that conflicts with The 9/11 Commission Report.

Lifting the Fog does not claim that the neo-cons were behind 9/11, or that aliens hijacked the planes, or that Osama bin Laden is hiding on Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas. What Lifting the Fog does say is, ‘Here is our evidence. It does not match with the “official” story. We are calling for a wider investigation.’

Through the story on the symposium, I found the Journal of 9/11 Studies, an online collection of articles “covering the whole of research related to 9/11/2001. One of the editors of the journal, Steven Jones, is one of the key people from Lifting the Fog. As a well-respected professor of physics at BYU, Dr. Jones represents the high level of science behind these projects.

As I said when I reviewed Loose Change, and it bears repeating here, “the only fact is that we don’t know what really happened on 9/11.

Meanwhile, the other Max has ordered copies of the 9/11 Commission Report for us and we are both also reading alternative theories of what happened and we are starting the Max2 Think Tank. We’ll figure things out eventually. Anyone care to join us?

Lifting the Fog’s own website is here.

Thanks for posting about Lifting the Fog. I've been curious about what the latest activities 9/11 researchers have been. Even if the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks are never brought to justice, I hope at least we can find out what really happened.

Good luck on your investigation into the 9-11 Ommission Report!

You know, I can't believe this is still being discussed. It should be quite clear by now that the Jews did it.

Well, A-hole, you say that ironically, but you know that that's exactly what some people think.

Of course 9/11 is still being discussed. That is because many people still care that the government has covered something up, and many people still value truth. Have you looked at any of the independent research? Or are you indifferent to truth? (I know you better than that.)

Spider, thanks. Any theories we come up with will be posted here.

I was one who pretty much bought the Official Conspiracy Theory at the beginning. It was the suspension of Professor Jones by BYU that woke me up to what was going on with 9/11 research. What was he saying that was so terrible that he must be suppressed? The more I looked into it, the more I was able to understand what people were saying about it.

As for the a**holes, you'd better get used to it. The people who are made uncomfortable by independent thought will try to bully you.

Thanks, Spider, but don't worry about this Asshole - he's my brother.

I got seriously interested in alternative theories the first time I read about the physics of the fires and the buildings collapsing and the impossibility of it all happening the way it had been presented. I asked my Big Sister in an email for her opinion on the whole thing because she is an engineer and understands that stuff better than I do. She didn't even acknowledge my question. (She is the sibling who avoids independent thought.) Then, of course, once you start looking for information, you find that there is a lot out there. Hopefully one day it will all come together and we'll know the whole story, but I'm not holding my breath.
