|Dr. Lynn Margulis, 1938-2011: A Beacon of Light for 9/11 Truth|

Editor’s Note: Dr. Lynn Margulis appears quite courageously in AE911Truth’s new DVD documentary, “9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out”, in which she notes:
You can’t do science when you are deprived of the evidence, and when your hypothesis is the least valid, instead of the most likely.
AE911Truth is honored by its important relationship with Dr. Margulis and will be dedicating the Final Edition of “Experts Speak Out” to her memory.
Having authored dozens of books and scientific papers, Margulis was awarded the National Medal of Science in 1999.
In 2004, she began looking into the evidence against the official account of 9/11. She not only accepted it, but also – always known for her courage - announced her views, writing in 2007:
“Because . . . the steel columns were selectively melted in a brilliantly-timed controlled demolition. Two 110-story buildings (towers 1 & 2), plus one 47-floor building (WTC 7), were induced to collapse at gravitationally accelerated rates in an operation planned and carried out by insiders. The apparent hijacking of airliners and the crashing of them into the Twin Towers were intrinsic parts of the operation, which together provided a basis for claiming that the buildings were brought down by Muslim terrorists. The buildings’ steel columns, which would have provided irrefutable physical evidence of the use of explosives, were quickly removed from the scene of the crime.”
But much more difficult than the scientific question, she said, is the “science-education problem”:
“The persistent problem is how to wake up public awareness, especially in the global scientifically literate public, of the overwhelming evidence that the three buildings collapsed by controlled demolition. . . . We, on the basis of hard evidence, must conclude that the petroleum fires related to the aircraft crashes were irrelevant (except perhaps as a cover story).”
The scientific world, including the 9/11 Truth Community - she was a member of Scientists for 9/11 Truth - has lost one of our noblest, most courageous fighters for the Earth and the Truth.
