First hour: University of Michigan philosophy professor David Skrbina came out for 9/11 truth on my radio show last year. He also teaches the subject honestly and directly in his classes (in which I have guest lectured). I have a personal interest in this topic, since I was forced out of the University of Wisconsin due to Rupert Murdoch & co’s charges that I was “teaching conspiracy theories” to my students.
On this show, David Skrbina will restore some of the University of Michigan’s honor, which was besmirched by 9/11 denier Juan Cole during his disgraceful recent appearance on my show.
Dr. Skrbina is the author of four books including Panpsychism in the West (published by MIT Press) and the editor of several others. He is a pioneer of ecophilosophy and a specialist in philosophy of mind, history of philosophy, and environmental ethics.
Second hour: AK Dewdney of the University of Western Ontario is one of the notable scientists of our time. Mathematics, computer science, philosphy, ecology – he’s done it all. Dr. Dewdney, the successor to Martin Gardner and Douglas Hoffstadter as the mathematical columnist for Scientific American, has published more than ten books on a variety of topics. He is also an important experimental filmmaker. A friend of the late, lamented Lynn Margulis, A.K. Dewdney is best known in the 9/11 truth community for his scientific research proving that the alleged cell phone calls from allegedly hijacked airliners on 9/11 could not possibly have happened. The FBI took note of Dewdney’s research, and implausibly changed the official story from “cell phone calls” to “seatback airphone calls” in a desperate attempt to salvage the official myth. Yet even the FBI was forced to admit that rightwing extremist loonie Barbara Olson’s alleged phone calls to then-Solicitor General Ted Olson, top lawyer for the Bush Crime Family – ostensibly made from hijacked Flight 77 – never happened. As of this writing, Ted Olson has not yet been arrested for obstruction of justice.
