What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain—and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be.
Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up. (Ether 8:23-24, emphasis added)
Stephen E. Jones, a BYU physics professor (I was his student for one of my physics classes), has published a peer-reviewed paper, documenting his claims that the “official story” of 9/11 is a hoax, and a possible cover-up.
Now, before those of you reading this roll your eyes, try opening your minds to the possibility. Ask yourself “What if?“.
The implications of Jones’ allegations are far-reaching, thought-provoking, and of great importance. The fact that his critics seek to write him off as a nutcase instead of attempting to scientifically refute his claims is further evidence of their potential validity. Having taken a class from Dr. Jones, I know a little of his character, his spirituality, his personality, and his professionalism. I deem him to be a sane, humble, spiritual, intelligent man who is merely trying to seek the truth.
That being said, I highly recommend watching the following videos to learn more about what Dr. Jones has to say. The people who I’ve related his claims to are very shocked and surprised at their strength, logic, and potential for proof.
First, I recommend watching a 6 minute interview Dr. Jones did with Tucker Carslon, a political windbag, on MSNBC. It is interesting to note in this video how Tucker/MSNBC refused to air the footage of tower #7 falling, though Dr. Jones had previously provided the short clip to them. That clip can be watched here.
Second, I recommend getting a snack and sitting down for two hours to watch this UVSC lecture done by Dr. Jones late in 2005. Here he outlines the several points from his paper. It is very enlightening and informative.
Finally, it would be beneficial to also watching an hour-long clip of this meeting, in the style of a fireside of sorts, with some concerned citizens and church members in Provo in April 2006. They talk about, among other things, Jones’ claims in light of Book of Mormon prophecy.
Fact or fiction? As Fox News likes to chant, “we report, you decide”.
