apparently this is what makes mr.meigs qualified to debate science:http://www.linkedin.com/pub/11/b57/65
editor-in-chief at Popular Mechanics
Greater New York City Area
BA, Philosophy, 1976 — 1981

*it should be noted that anyone can join linkedin.com for free and set up a profile, so there is no guarantee that page is authentic (even though it seems accurate). i mention this because i was able to verify that meigs attended dartmouth and that he was a 1980 graduate, along with his wife who also attended there http://unauthorized

i also found that he is alleged to be the editorial director for dartmouth's alumni magazine, by at least one person:http://unauthorized
...The alumni board of directors was dropping by for final approval after all was finished, which concerned me a bit. But the alumni editorial director turned out to be James B. Meigs, editor-in-chief of Popular Mechanics, and he loved everything I did. Such magazines as PM have inspired me for as long as I can remember to build that plywood roadster in my basement and win the Indy 500 with it. So, in a way, we all had just a great great pie fight and a lot of fun. Here's to Prof. Wagstaff, and thanks to everyone at Dartmouth U.
-but after extensive searches of dartmouth's site: http://unauthorized
-as well as google searches of the internet:http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%...urriculum+vitaehttp://www.google.com/search?q=%22James+Me...;hl=en&sa=2http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%...amp;btnG=Searchhttp://www.google.com/search?q=%22James+Me...;hl=en&sa=2
-i could not and did not find any official details about what he studied while attending dartmouth (nor any mention of him as an editorial director for dartmouth alum mag). aside from meigs' linkedin profile and bollyn's article (who probably used linkedin as his source), there is no record of what meigs studied at one of america's most expensive ivy league schools. but assuming he did indeed study 5 years of philosophy, imo meigs is unfit and unqualified to debate any scientific or technical data, especially with regard to 9/11.
btw - i really have to add that im by no means excusing meigs or giving him a free pass. i think its awesome that you called him rob and tried to hold his feet to the fire. i didnt say it before, and i think it requires clarification, but regardless of his lack of proper qualified expertise, meigs has attempted to play the scientific authority on the matter of 9/11, and thus he should be made to answer for it. if you ever do get him on the phone or in person, present him with technical questions first and when he refuses to answer, then ask him how it is that BA in philosophy qualifies him to have any sort of "expert" opinion or insight on the events of 9/11.
