ABC Affiliate Covers Steven Jones Presentation at Salt Lake Community College

This is actually a couple of weeks old, but new to us.

BYU physics professor says WTC towers were bombed from inside -

A BYU physics professor is spreading his controversial theory about the collapse of the Twin Towers in New york City on 9/11. He doesn't think they were caused merely by the impact of planes that flew into them, or the fires that resulted.

Professor Stephen Jones says it looks like the towers fell due to explosives placed inside. He analyzes the way the towers fell, including a third building at the World Trade Center.

Jones also looks closely at the hot metal found underneath the rubble, and says it appears the columns on lower floors were cut with explosives almost simultaneously.

Professor Jones presented his hypothesis for students at Salt Lake Community College's Sandy Center.

Some critics, including Jones' own colleagues at BYU, claim professor Jones' hypothesis is deeply flawed.

You can find a video clip from their news coverage via the link above as well.

Hypothesis deeply

Hypothesis deeply flawed???!!! You've got be kidding me! I watched & read everything Dr.Jones has presented and there aren't any flaws. Gravity and the speed at which the towers fell is all the evidence required to prove controlled demolition.

Which "collegues" are they referring to? The maintenance men and politcal science assistants?

My apologies to the "maintenance men" and "political science" types I may have offended.

Flawed???!!!!! Good Grief!

Be careful of this

Be careful of this gentleman. VERY careful. No offense, but a lot of you seem to be clueless about what the "truth movement" really is. A false front just like the so called "left"(non-existant without corporate funding) or "right" in America, where leads and breakthroughs go around in circles. The time to pull this thing together is now or it will be too late when the curtain in front of this "truth movement" is lifted.

I am not organized with Mr. Dunne in any way---and of course he has his flaws---- but he raises crucial points that nobody else is even considering.

someone is always saying that: flawed. but no one ever points out a specific flaw, do they? someone was trying to dismiss janedoe's revised essay solely on the basis that her handle is janedoe. i asked for specific flaws in her reasoning and surprise surprise! none were forthcoming. if prof. jones' report is flawed in any way, then it will be pointed out to him and he will correct it. everything else is just hot air distraction.

I love how the news is all

I love how the news is all about opinions..

"Some critics, including Jones' own colleagues at BYU, claim professor Jones' hypothesis is deeply flawed."

News "should" be about facts so how are the professors claims flawed... I really want to know...

Can someone please stand up?

Can someone put their ass on the line like professor Jones has to debunk his science?

The video at the ABC site

The video at the ABC site doesn't work. It just buffers and buffers, but does nothing.

who's name is spelled with a V?

and you can bet that there's an entire squad of debunkers who've been frantically looking for flaws in prof. Jones' report since the very day he brought it forth. if there were even the slightest thing wrong with it we would all hear about it lickety-split.

The most fucking moronic

The most fucking moronic mainstream coverage of Jones that I've ever seen. Period.

According to wikipedia: The

According to wikipedia:

The BYU physics department has also issued a statement: "The university is aware that Professor Steven Jones's hypotheses and interpretations of evidence regarding the collapse of World Trade Center buildings are being questioned by a number of scholars and practitioners, including many of BYU's own faculty members. Professor Jones's department and college administrators are not convinced that his analyses and hypotheses have been submitted to relevant scientific venues that would ensure rigorous technical peer review." The Fulton College of Engineering and Technology department has also added, "The structural engineering faculty in the Fulton College of Engineering and Technology do not support the hypotheses of Professor Jones." [3]

In April 2006, BYU removed those statements from their website following a letter saying that Jones' paper was, indeed, peer reviewed. The letter, written by linguistics professor Richard McGinn to Alan Parkinson, Dean of the Fulton College of Engineering and Technology, also says that McGinn is entitled to file an ethics complaint with the American Society of Civil Engineers against Parkinson for continuing to run those statements. An excerpt from the letter follows:
" dean has the right to represent individual faculty, much less the entire faculty of BYU’s Engineering College, on the issue of whether they do (or do not) “support” a colleague’s research, whether published or in-progress. The offending statement is a breach of collegiality, and seems as well to infringe upon Professor Jones’ academic freedom.
Most poignantly, it is inconsistent with the code of ethics of the American Society of Civil Engineers, by which you, as dean of the Engineering College, are bound, given that your web site claims to represent the opinions of an entire faculty of BYU engineers. The ASCR Code states in part:
g. Engineers shall not maliciously or falsely, directly or indirectly, injure the professional reputation, prospects, practice or employment of another engineer or indiscriminately criticize another's work."
If members of the College disagree with Dr. Jones' assertions in his paper that the official FEMA and NIST reports are inadequate as they stand, then they should be specific in their reasons for supporting those reports, neither of which provides (routine) visualizations for finite element analyses..."
