Dr. David Griscom is a highly-rated physicist – and a leading challenger to the official story of 9/11, which he says violates the laws of physics. During this interview, he discusses the Harrit et. al. nanothermite paper, 9/11 truth movement controversies, the 9/11 planes, and the possibility that Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was hijacked by remote control, just like the passenger planes on 9/11.

Dr. Griscom, together with the Association for 9/11 Truth Awareness ( and Truth Jihad Radio, issued a debate challenge February 20th via the most active anti-9/11-truth website, the James Randi forum. Any qualified physicist who actually believes the official story of 9/11 is invited to step forward and defend those beliefs – and try to win a $1000 prize!

The debate was originally scheduled for March 15th, 2014 at noon Eastern time. We have been looking for a physicist with a Hirsch Index rating over 50 (i.e. a highly qualified physicist in the same league as Dr. Griscom). Unfortunately, there does not seem to be even one highly-qualified physicist in the world who can argue that the official story of 9/11 is permitted by the laws of physics!
The proposed debate question is:


1) The laws of physics were broken by the official story and we need a new investigation
2) The laws were not broken, and everything was explainable. The 9/11 Commission Report is fine as is.

The debate will be 2 hours with three 10 minute breaks every half hour for a total time of 1.5 hours.

The winner will be determined by audience vote and will receive $1000 towards the non-profit charity of his or her choice.
Also note that my own 9/11 debate challenge has been offering $1000 and later $2000 to any University of Wisconsin instructor who can defend the official story of 9/11. This offer has been up for several years, with no takers. Speaks volumes, doesn’t it?

One Thought to “Physicist David Griscom’s $1000 9/11 debate challenge!”

  1. I'd like to enter the debate contest. I am not a certified Physicist, but I do think I have an iron clad argument for the official version. I will even tell it to you in advance: Based on Romans 13, we are told to submit to the ruling authorities, whom God has placed over us to rule for our benefit.

    Since the American rulers have formed commissions and published results confirming their verdict of the 9-11 attacks, we must simply bow our heads and accept. Believe even when science and reason say otherwise. Isn't that what faith is all about?

    And if I lose the debate then I will simply phone up Dick Cheney and ask him to authorize a drone strike on the audience members.
