NC State Physics Professors, All of Them, Refuse to Answer Basic Questions About the Collapse of the WTC Buildings
Over two months ago I sent an email to every full physics professors at North Carolina State University, 37 of them, requesting help in evaluating the information and evidence about the collapse of the WTC on 9/11. I mentioned that I am not an expert in physics, but I have seen many contradictions between the official story of 9/11 and what many have shown to be valid evidence. I gave them some of the sources for the evidence, such as free fall speed of collapse, Jones/Ryan's paper on nanothermite, the molten iron, etc. I explained how very important it is to understand what actually brought down the buildings and clear the air about these contradictions.
It has been over two months, and I have not received any explanations or help in understanding the disconnect between the evidence and the official story. It is odd, though, that within about a half a day, I received two emails, both from professors who told me that they did not have sufficient expertise to help me evaluate the problems I was having understanding the contradictions. One simply told me he knew several people at NIST and knew them to be very good people. The other expressed concern, but could not help because it was not his field of study.
I had to read those letters over again to make sure I was understanding that they really felt they couldn't help because these PHYSICS professors, who have spent their life learning and teaching physics, could not help me with some simple questions about free fall speed, the melting temperature of iron, explosives, and the temperatures that can be reached via open hydrocarbon fires. What a copout.
But, again, it is odd that so soon after I sent my emails, one to each of the physics professors, I got two emails back quickly, and then not one more in almost three months. Did they have a meeting, or pass the word, that all were prohibited from responding? Is this too hot a topic? Do they all feel that they have no responsibility to help the American people know the truth about 9/11? Do they not realize that if they do know the truth, that the official story is a lie, and do not present that information to the American people, then they are complicit in the deaths and maimings of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Can that be called treason?
Below is the email I sent to each physics professor, individually:
July 1, 2009
Dear Dr. (Name of one professor.........I sent individual letters to 37 full professors),
I need your help.
I am a sixty year old dentist and father, and I am very troubled with what I have learned recently about the attacks of 9/11, specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center. I have come across information and evidence that seems to prove that the buildings did not collapse because of fire and plane crashes, but instead collapsed because of controlled demolition. I am a skeptical person, but I have a fundamental knowledge of physics, and the explanations blaming the collapse on controlled demolition, seem to make sense.
But I am not an expert in physics. I may be wrong. I hope so. If the official story is wrong, it is of huge importance and very unsettling. I need people with expertise to tell me that what I have learned is wrong, or right. Please take a few minutes to let me know what you think.
One of the most troubling bits of information is that several scientists have found nanothermite, an explosive, in the dust samples taken from the WTC collapse area. Steven Jones and Kevin Ryan and seven other scientists have presented this information in a paper, "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe [The Open Chemical Physics Journal] . " Nanothermite, I have learned, is not produced commercially, and could only come from research centers with some connection with the government and military. I cannot think of any way this material could have been found throughout the area unless it had been placed before the attacks. It seems to show complicity by at least some people linked to an official agency.
Also, it has been shown that the Towers, and Building 7, collapsed at nearly free fall speed. Apparently, only a building brought down via controlled demolition could collapse at that speed and acceleration. NIST, which presented the public with the pancake theory of collapse, has not shown how this free fall could be possible with their explanation of the collapse. A building collapsing onto itself would be far slower, as each floor crashing onto the next would decrease in acceleration as it hit against the next floor down, much of the energy of falling being absorbed in each impact. Why no good explanation of this by the government? Why do we hear nothing from our universities and academic think tanks?
And there are other problems with the official story. There are many eyewitness reports of molten metal in the rubble after collapse, some of it found days and weeks after collapse. Hydrocarbon fires cannot melt steel. The "meteorites" that were found after cooling were iron, and had traces of nanothermite in them. And there were many reports of explosions, some of them sequential. There was a massive amount of "pyroclastic dust" throughout the city. In fact, the collapses seem to exhibit all of the fourteen characteristics of controlled demolition, as presented on the website, www.ae911.org. This website is supported by the signatures of over 700 architects and engineers, all of whom feel the official story is inadequate. They are calling for a new, independent investigation.
The United States is extraordinarily blessed with experts in physics and other related sciences, in our educational institutions and in industry. When I feel certain that these contradictions to the official story are real and disturbing, I wonder why we are not hearing from these scientists. I begin to think I must be wrong about all of it. But the conflicts between science and the official story seem real. And that is why I am so troubled. If the official story is wrong, if there was government complicity, and coverup, the implications are huge. I feel it is important for the scientific community to express their ideas in this important issue.
I am a good American, and not a troublemaker. I spent 36 years in the Navy and National Guard. But I worry about the future if we have been told a lie about 9/11. I only want the truth, because I think the truth will bring a better future for my kids and grandkids. I would deeply appreciate your time in responding to this letter.
