During this week’s live False Flag Weekly News broadcast, Professor Tony Hall wondered why I had included a story about a new Astrophysics Journal article showing that “dark matter” and “dark energy,” which are currently said to comprise 97% of the universe, may not even exist.

I explained to Tony that the story illustrates the most basic principle of science and scholarship: All current models are always open to revision!

So if André Maeder is right, 97% of the known universe just disappeared. WOW! That is quite a revision!

The people witch-hunting Professor Hall at the University of Lethbridge do not seem to grasp the idea that all models are open to debate and possible revision. They think Tony Hall should be fired simply for arguing that the Holocaust, like all other historical events, can be questioned and argued about. And they think that Tony’s views of 9/11, which challenge the Zelikow Commission’s conclusions, are so outrageously heretical that they must be forcibly silenced.

Obviously Tony’s persecutors are neither scholars nor scientists. They are fundamentalist true believers. They have elevated their own narratives of the Holocaust and 9/11 to the status of sacred myths.

If they want to make their own stories into tribal idols, they are perfectly free to do so. But such primitive idolatry has no place in the  modern academy, which is built on the premise that everything in the universe is open to questioning and possible revision.

If anyone strongly disagrees with the Professor Hall’s interpretations of any historical issue, they have every right to argue against him using logic and evidence. If he is shown to be wrong, yet irrationally clings to demonstrably false models, his scholarly peers will take care of the problem. That is how the academy is supposed to work.

I know Tony Hall well, having worked with him for many years. And I know that he would never stubbornly cling to demonstrably false views in the face of new evidence. On the contrary, when shown the inadequacy of his current views, he responds by looking into the issue and enlarging his understanding. (That openness to new ideas and arguments, a prerequisite for genuine academicians, is in fact what got him in trouble with the true believers in the first place!)

So Tony Hall’s critics have an easy task in front of them. All they have to do is muster a strong argument against Tony’s position on any issue that concerns them. Tony will weigh that argument and, if necessary, adjust his position accordingly.

I hope that happens. It would be wonderful to see a flurry of scholarly monographs explaining why Tony Hall’s positions on the Holocaust, 9/11, North American history, etc. are wrong. Tony Hall would respond with monographs of his own. Then the two sides could have a series of live debates. The monographs, along with transcripts and videos of the debates, could be published and widely distributed.

But I do not expect Professor Hall’s critics to do any such thing. I suspect they lack confidence in their own positions. They are afraid that Tony Hall would win any debate in which facts, evidence, and logic were the ultimate arbiters. So instead of debating him, they hurl emotionally-charged insults while sobbing and shrieking about Hall’s damnable heresies.

Such people, whose emotional instability is only exceeded by their disregard for logic and evidence, have no business in the academy.

  1. For more on the violation of academic freedom in the case of Professor Hall go to academicfreedomanthonyhall.ca/

  2. This is pure jewels. Someone who is for example on an excellence scholarship/mission to Ivy League departments that proclaim to motorbike on logic and scientific evidence should accept nothing less of an argument than the above text. Even the sons and daughters of the legacy of the 9/11 fake history actors, who can realize the above only by visiting the study room of their moms and dads.

  3. @Eduardo the wolves created this fence and called it sacred and untouchable while debating with the sheeple what to have for a meal. They temselves think they are outside this fence or dark cave as I call it believing only they are enlightend. They focus us on their BS while we see the light in the edge of our eyes while blinking.

  4. if ever anything “sacred” would have existed in this world menkind would still live in caves while hunting dinosauers. There is no limit for menkind and limits set by religion/believe are only in time working in favour of so called elites.

    • if you want to see the light you have to leave the cave they set us in w religion/believe and limitations looking behind the border of those caves or boxes.They don´t want you to do this because they loose control

  5. In spite of all the blather about a “jewish century,” they’d better be damn glad the rest of the humans in this world never becomes as barbaric, criminal, sadistic and conscienceless as them.

  6. Pure science can not be accomplished while politics, finance, religion, military, and personal “feelings” are involved. Anthony wanted to go further with the “anti-religious fanatic” point and you guys should do a whole show on that. There are studies of specific things, and entire areas of potential human development that are prohibited in academia, government, and religion alike. The first study, would be art and creativity as a healing influence and development of spirit, and the evidence that it is preferable to religion. The next study would be pious fraud. At what point does a religious view become fraud ? If Santa Claus is an acceptable form of fraud, then where does religion fit into the misnomers contained in the foundation of modern academia? That these misnomers are unquestionable, and further study or specific evidence is not allowed ? Two of these misnomers, would be Compulsory education and the product being Trump, and the evidence of the origins of spiritual text being the study of humanities and recurring patterns.

    • I’m all for art and creativity. But in healthy civilizations it is organically linked to religious worship. Since art and especially “literature” became the new sacred scripture for the West sometime in the late 19th century, and decoupled from religion, it has grown decadent. When I was collecting graduate degrees in literature (roughly 1988 to 2004) it was common to hear the Marquis de Sade cited as one of the greats! Anyone who has taken the time to study the history of various civilizations will agree that religion is at their core, and they are born, grow, decline, and die according to the extent to which their religion the vibrant center of society providing a shared common answer to the ultimate questions of life, and shared common rituals bringing people together in the experience of the transcendent. Those who are “in denial” about this can’t handle the truth: We modern Western people are decadent products of a decadent civilization.

    • Decadent ? Is Dubai decadent ? The most decadent things on this earth are houses of worship. I agree that a spiritually healthy society is important, but modern religion can offer no evidence that it is an attribute to this.
      The anti-war movement has no religious presence to speak of. But the priests are always there to gather the scraps and whatever the widow has left. Academia shoulders the blame if de Sade is viewed as great at the collegiate level. The happiest communities I have seen are spiritual yes, but religious or rigid , no.
      And Donald Trump as President is absolutely the product of compulsory education, and christianity. He is what it produces and the proof is self evident.
