BYU Professor Endorses 9/11 Inside Job Theory!!

Being an alumni of BYU, I found this article repulsive.

A BYU physics professor, Steven E. Jones, has published a paper claiming that the World Trade towers were not brought down by the planes, but by strategically controlled explosives. Once a theory of moonbats and fringe groups, the professor's endorsement actually adds credence to such garbage.

This professor's endorsement of such a theory suggests that 9/11 was an inside job and greatly tarnishes the school's image.

Just as neighboring University of Utah was embarrassed by a few faculty years ago, claiming they had invented "cold fusion", this professor's publication will be a black eye on the school and its legitimacy as an intellectual institution for years to come.

Voice your concern to the university president here.

I couldn't agree more on this one. One of the things I love about BYU is that it doesn't have the same extreme left/liberal shift that most universities have. After reading about this professor and his publications, I was so upset I had trouble making measurements in the lab. I'll try to post about why conspiracy theories are not just stupid, but are actually dangerous, this weekend.
