Former BYU Professor Steven Jones Resurfaces After BYU Gently Kicked Him To The Curb Over Controversial 9/11 Paper In 2006

Little has been publicly heard of former BYU-Provo Professor Steven Jones, who was gently kicked to the curb by BYU in September 2006 after he released his controversial
19-page academic paper in November 2005 entitled "Why Indeed did the WTC Buildings Collapse", which attempted to show how the laws of physics do not support the WTC's freefall and, consequently, the official government story. He suggested 13 reasons why the official story should be challenged. While expressing doubt about the government's version of 9/11, he called for an independent investigation concerning the strange collapse of WTC Buildings #1 and #2, which were struck by airliners, as well as #7, which was NOT struck by an airliner, something the 9/11 Commission failed to do and something the Bush Administration adamantly opposed. Dr. Jones, who served as a bishop in the BYU 99th Ward and as high councilor in the BYU 10th Stake during that time, remains a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; his daughter just returned home from serving a mission in Baton Rouge, LA.

However, Dr. Jones has resurfaced in this subforum on the LDS Freedom Forum, and apparently he posts there regularly. He makes no dramatic new revelations, but merely shares his perspective six years after the fact. He makes it clear that he and BYU did NOT part on unfavorable terms. In response to another poster, Dr. Jones wrote:

It is a concern to me as well, AGStacker. And I don't understand it. It was painful for me and my family. We will understand some day.

You know, I served as on the Stake High Council in the BYU 10th Stake then as a Bishop in the BYU 99th Ward, while I was serving also as a Full Professor of Physics. I gave it my all.

I thought I should at least deserve a hearing, a chance to hear the charges against me and answer them -- which I requested, as noted in the newspaper.

Dr. Jones also noted that he published several peer-reviewed papers on 9/11:

-- Steven E. Jones, “What accounts for the molten metal observed on 9/11/2001?”, Journal of the Utah Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters, 83:252, Apr 2006.
-- S.E. Jones, et al. "Fourteen Points...", Open Civil Engineering Journal, April 2008.
-- K. Ryan, J. Gourley and S.E. Jones, "Environmental Anomalies at the World Trade Center: Evidence for Energetic Materials", Environmentalist, August 2008.
-- Niels Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven Jones, et al. "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe", THE OPEN CHEMICAL PHYSICS JOURNAL, April 2009.

Dr. Jones hints that the suppression of competing theories about 9/11 has caused him to question what other coverups governments may be capable of:

Yes, certainly. Clandestine weapons of war and torture are terrible. Such weapons can and have been used for false-flag attacks which are historically precedented.

In the pages of this forum and elsewhere, I have spoken against wars of aggression and against torture, and against abridgements of human freedom including the right to seek redress for grievances, the right of free speech, the right of habeus corpus, and the right of freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures -- and the right of due process when charged of wrong-doing. My experience and observation -- we are losing those rights vouch-safed in the Constitution of the United States of America by the founders.

One other forum member is still put out over the fact that BYU nudged Dr. Jones to the curb. Col. Flagg writes:

As for Dr. Jones and BYU's decision to force him into retirement... it's all pretty simple... BYU chose to distance itself from Steve's work because they didn't want the federal government breathing down its neck and the financial repercussions for BYU could have been severe in the form of reduced or even suspended grants and loans for BYU students not to mention threats to the church's tax-exempt status (501c3). It was a pure money decision, but that doesn't make what they did right, in fact, it was downright despicable. I'd like to know how it is that Dr. Jeffrey Farrer is still teaching and employed by BYU when he's come out 100% in support of Dr. Jones and his 9/11 research/conclusions? Why hasn't he lost his job yet for backing the truth? Guess it's been long enough now and decisions already made that they don't have to worry about the feds and Bush/Cheney are long gone anyway. It is this man's humble opinion that those BYU officials responsible for Steve's dismissal from the school will have to answer to the Lord some day on the other side. At best it was cowardice and at worst, betrayal.

It is only natural that the fast-tracking of the official 9/11 story would generate doubt and suspicion among patriotic Americans. The statutory protection conferred upon the official Holocaust story by Europe's Holocaust denial laws have likewise provoked suspicion and opposition in that realm; the forbidden naturally becomes more attractive. Steven Jones isn't merely another "truther"; he's a respected professor who has produced a multitude of peer-reviewed works.

And finally, this video musically sums up the skepticism produced by the official 9/11 story:

Not news. DrJones has been consistent of his views on that forum for years. I agree with Col. Flagg in the above report.

I was tortured for almost 3 years by the FBI and their friends only
because 85 years old man, Roland Sibens(chicago) convinced them that I
am a terrorist. I was tortured for working on my prosthetic legs in
the basement. I done absolutely nothing illegal or wrong. They thought
that in theory it is possible to hide bomb in them. They saw an
opportunity to get famous, so they were trying to torture me till I
sign their insane story. They tortured me using more than 100
different torturing methods and trust to me waterboarding is not how
they torture nowadays. I dont know where to find justice.

I think that after 9/11 things got out of control. Freedom fighters
became tyrants. In 1945, most Germans had an opportunity to learn about Nazis death
camps. I hope that one day American citizens will get chance to learn about people
like me, who were tortured with no reason for years.

Now you should know Steven Jones is a fraud. The spectrum analysis of the so called "thermite" chips almost 100% matches that of paint and both Jones and Harrit should have known that:

"Ironically, his guru Steven Jones, the originator of the entire hoax, did analyse actual, confirmed WTC primer paint from external columns - the very Tnemec that Harrit discussed in that extraordinarily stupid "why the chips aren't paint" paper (bottom right):"

The only question remaining is whether charges of criminal fraud will be in the offing in future.
