[April 2010]

Michael Fullerton, founder of Vernon 9/11 Truth, is offering a $5000 reward to the first person anywhere in the world who can provide some specific answers relating to the 9/11 event. Until further notice, a Greater Vernon BC area resident can receive a $25,000 reward for submitting the first valid entry.  Until further notice, a Canadian resident can receive a $10,000 reward for submitting the first valid entry.  Until further notice, a professor in physics or engineering from the following Universities can receive a $10,000 reward for submitting the first valid entry:Harvard, MIT, Yale, Oxford, Stanford, Columbia, Cornell and Princeton.

Applicants must explain precisely, using sound scientific terminology, how the official theory of the WTC 7 collapse, as supported by NIST (The National Institute of Standards and Technology), does not violate the laws of physics. All explanations must be backed up with valid scientific evidence. NIST maintains WTC 7 came down due to fire damage alone. WTC 7 was a 47 story building about the width and length of a football field that was not hit by a plane on 9/11. Applicants must explain how normal office fires caused 8 stories or about 100 feet of structure including the 58 perimeter columns and 25 massive core columns of WTC 7 to be effectively removed simultaneously floor by floor so that the building was able to free fall straight down symmetrically for at least 2.25 seconds.

Applicants must explain how energy and momentum are conserved in the official NIST story. They must explain how a fire-initiated collapse would be symmetrical like a typical controlled demolition and not asymmetrical like every known collapse caused by fire. They must explain why WTC 7 rolled to the south at the end of the collapse. In controlled demolitions, such rolls are performed in order to minimize damage  to one side. Note that ground zero was to the south of WTC 7. How can fire be so considerate?

Answers can be submitted to info@vernon911truth.org and will be published on the www.vernon911truth.org site. Any others wishing to also offer pledges of money to sweeten the pot are more than welcome to.

Absolutely none since April 2010.

So far the challenge was sent to the majority of structural engineering professors and physics professors at: McGill University, University of Toronto, University of British Columbia, University of Alberta, Queens University, University of Waterloo, McMaster University, University of Calgary, University of Western Ontario, Simon Fraser University, Dalhousie University, University of Ottawa, University of Victoria, York University, Carleton University, University of Manitoba, Concordia University. It was sent to every engineering and architecture firm in the Okanagan, every physics and engineering instructor at Okanagan College and even all Vernon-area high school physics teachers. Not one person has responded with an explanation. Every known newspaper in Canada was contacted about this challenge. Not one newspaper has covered the story.

A challenge was issued to the notorious “skeptic” forum on JREF to debate the physics behind this challenge in its own moderated thread. They created a separate thread in a misdirected attempt to discredit this challenge using their typical simplistic name-calling and hand-waving “arguments”. However they seem too frightened to debate the science behind the challenge in a separate thread that would be far less susceptible to their typical sophomoric discredit and misdirect tactics.

Dave Thomas a physicist, mathematician, 9/11 “debunker” and president of New Mexicans for Science and Reason has also refused to debate the physics behind this challenge in a moderated thread on JREF. Strange. JREF “debunkers” continually claim that the 9/11 truth community are stupid and insane but steadfastly refuse to have a focused debate free of attacks on the main scientific problem of the 9/11 story.

The mainstream media generally maintains that the official story of 9/11 is the correct one and that anyone that dares even question it is mentally unsound in some way. However, believing in theories that violate the laws of physics is a telltale sign of a severely unhinged crackpot. Even stranger is the fact that believing in things without question simply because someone told you it is true is not only a sign of extreme gullibility but actually shows a serious disconnect from reality. As the Milgram experiments show, such flagrant trust in authority figures could be used to manipulate people into doing horrendous things. Further, believing in one thing because accepting the alternative is too terrifying is the neurotic condition of denial. Sound skepticism on the other hand is a sign of strong critical reasoning abilities and therefore intelligence. If the official story is true and does not violate the laws of physics the mainstream media should have no problem covering this story.

Common Questions

Q1. I heard this challenge is a fraud because the money will never be paid out. Is that true?

A. No it’s all a complete lie. This challenge represents a binding legal contract. If a valid submission is rejected or the funds are found not to be there on acceptance, this would constitute fraud which is legally actionable. You would be able to sue for the reward money and your legal costs. The challenge is basically equivalent to someone offering a reward for a lost pet. What kind of people would go around harassing bereaved pet owners by calling them frauds? It just goes to show that you can’t trust malicious gossip.

Q2. I heard this challenge is a fraud because it is unwinnable. Is this true?

A. If this challenge is unwinnable that means the official story of 9/11 is a fraud. Think about it. If you believe in the official story you should be able to get this money. If you can’t come up with a valid submission, how can you believe in something you cannot in any way defend? Why do you unquestioningly believe what authorities tell you to believe without figuring things out for yourself? Are you a courageous rational autonomous human being or just a frightened slab of livestock that authorities control and manipulate at their will?
