Lynn Margulis: 1938-2011

Lynn Margulis: 1938-2011

Lynn Margulis

The family of Lynn Margulis has announced that she died at home on Tuesday, November 22, at the age of 73. She had suffered a serious hemorrhagic stroke on Friday, November 18 - so serious that there was no chance of recovery.

Having authored dozens of books and scientific papers, Margulis was awarded the National Medal of Science in 1999.

In 2004, she began looking into the evidence against the official account of 9/11. She not only accepted it but also – always known for her courage - announced her views, writing in 2007:

“Whoever is responsible for bringing to grisly fruition this new false-flag operation, which has been used to justify the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as unprecedented assaults on research, education, and civil liberties, must be perversely proud of their efficient handiwork. Certainly, 19 young Arab men and a man in a cave 7,000 miles away, no matter the level of their anger, could not have masterminded and carried out 9/11: the most effective television commercial in the history of Western civilization. I suggest that those of us aware and concerned demand that the glaringly erroneous official account of 9/11 be dismissed as a fraud and a new, thorough, and impartial investigation be undertaken."

In early 2010, she wrote an article on WTC 7 entitled “Two Hit, Three Down – The Biggest Lie.” Asking: “Why did three World Trade Center buildings (#1,#2 and #7) collapse on 9/11, after two (and only two) of them were hit by ‘hijacked airplanes’?”, she gave the scientific answer:

“Because . . . the steel columns were selectively melted in a brilliantly-timed controlled demolition. Two 110-story buildings (towers 1&2), plus one 47-floor building (WTC 7), were induced to collapse at gravitationally accelerated rates in an operation planned and carried out by insiders. The apparent hijacking of airliners and the crashing of them into the Twin Towers were intrinsic parts of the operation, which together provided a basis for claiming that the buildings were brought down by Muslim terrorists. The buildings’ steel columns, which would have provided irrefutable physical evidence of the use of explosives, were quickly removed from the scene of the crime.”

But much more difficult than the scientific question, she said, is the “science-education problem”:

“The persistent problem is how to wake up public awareness, especially in the global scientifically literate public, of the overwhelming evidence that the three buildings collapsed by controlled demolition. . . . We, on the basis of hard evidence, must conclude that the petroleum fires related to the aircraft crashes were irrelevant (except perhaps as a cover story).”

The scientific world, including the 9/11 Truth Community – she was a member of Scientists for 9/11 Truth - has lost one of our noblest, most courageous fighters for the Earth and the Truth.

Lynn will be missed.

The video is for anyone not familiar with her honesty and integrity.

Peace to all

who knew her.

Thank you Dr. Margulis, for showing us the essence of integrity.

A tremendous loss. Yesterday

A tremendous loss. Yesterday was the 48th anniversary of the JFK assassination too. Miss you, Doctor.

Lynn was certainly a great and courageous lady

who would not compromise her principles for expediency. If one reads about her life they wouldn't be surprised that once she looked into the subject she was willing to publicly call the present official explanations for what occurred in NYC on Sept. 11, 2001 what they were, frauds.

I am glad she was featured in the architects & engineers video and able to articulate her position on the matter before she passed. If half of the people in her position had her temerity in this regard the world would be a much better place. She will be missed.

If there is a heaven I have to believe she is there.

Thank you Lynn for crying out for justice for those who where sacrificed on 9/11. We are all proud to call you our compatriot, colleague, and friend. We are honored to carry on your message for truth.



Lynn was a giant in science, even to the point where

a lay person like myself, was a fan. She has written many great books and articles for non-scientists explaining her view that symbiotic relationships are MUCH MORE important to life, evolution than any of that Darwinian competition, survival of the fittest bullshit. Such bunk has been implanted in our consciousness in order to justify the rapacious, life and planet destroying monstrosity we so loving call Capitalism.

Its time has come, and gone. We owe much to Lynn, as a Warrior for Truth in ALL her many endeavors.

"She was an amazing scientist and a wonderful person," said Steve Goodwin, dean of the College of Natural Sciences at UMass Amherst. "Of course she was a different kind of scientist, one who does not come along very often. Her great gift was making connections, connections that others just couldn't make.

Lynn Margulis, ex-wife of Carl Sagan and evolutionary biologist, has passed away

mass media blackout on this?

I'm having trouble finding ONE article about her that mentions her work and or opinion
on 9/11.
