The Strange Saga of Jeffrey Farrer

Those of you who have been following this blog for a while have probably noticed that I have a hobby of following the Full Members of ST911 (yes, I know, I should collect stamps or something). Originally in May, I brought up the issue that Jeffrey Farrer was listed as a Full Member, even though he was a lab manager, and not a professor. Then in August, after Judy Wood complained to Jim Fetzer, he was demoted to a Student Member. A week or two later, after Judy Wood left he was then promoted to Jeffrey Farrer PhD, a Full Member.

Now only a few weeks later he has quit the organization entirely.

Farrer, who manages BYU's Transmission Electron Microscopy Laboratory, sent an e-mail asking the group to remove his name from the Web site on Sept. 7, hours before BYU administrators informed Jones they were placing him on paid leave. Farrer had grown increasingly uncomfortable with the content of scholarsfor911truth.org. He was disturbed that it appeared to have a political viewpoint, though he said he would continue to work with the group.


"If it's a scholarly Web site, I don't think they should have a political viewpoint," Farrer said. "I thought there was too much finger-pointing and maybe a little too much speculation that wasn't based on confirmable evidence."

Geez, these guys have more turnover than the night shift at Burger King.

or maybe he was uncomfortable with his brand new fake PhD...I am assuming he doesn't have a real one, or hope to god he doesnt, if he is working as a "Lab Manager" at BYU.

One of us should pose as an academic and apply to SF911T.

Claim you're a structural engineer and they'd be so excited they probably wouldn't even ask to see your papers.

or perhaps you could do something more useful with your life like stick chewed gum on park benches.

You should probably see Abby's doctor and get yourself a paxil prescription.

Why are you here then? You're wasting your time on time wasters.

Hypocrite.

Hey Roger, you still got that $50,000 handy for a new investigation?

So Roger, you see no problem in faking someone's credentials?

Quite remarkable for someone in a "truth" movement.

My hat's off to ya'.

Hey, that reminds me of this:

Jage Knepp (SM) Stockholm University

Grundar from JREF:
"There is not one knepp in the Swedish on-line phone directory (www.eniro.se) only one Jage (does not even come close to knepp in his last name) and five or six with the last name Knäpp.

Close English example would be Iam Stopid


This guy is still listed as a student member. What a bunch of friggin morons!

If you sign up, use the name Jasam Glupi. Be the equivalent of the swedish joke.

ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST!!!

I guess it is true....
A house made only of cards will eventually collapse.

Don't worry, Reynolds won't be affected.

Real CTers know that aluminum foil doesn't block the mind control rays like real Tin foil does.

Reynolds hasn't made tin foil for years.
