I hope he didn't, but if he did, it's probably more closely related to mental imbalance than his beliefs in conspiracy theories - the conspiracy theories might just be another symptom.

I don't know whether it's true, but if so it's really sad.
He was using his youtube account yesterday.

If it isn't, I would love to see a class action law suit against him for emotional trauma, pain and suffering by all those witness to his ********** up "performance art". Fecking lunatic.

I don't know about the US, but over here he would "perform" in a padded cell for some weeks until the Doctors decide that he doesn't pose a real threat to himself and others.

I for one wouldn't give an original recording of the events of 9/11 to him, even for 100k. The historical value is too high to put it in the hands of some random idiot who's unlikely to pay up, and has none of the necessary experience to actually analyze it (and do so non-destructively).

Well, you have to work hard to pick a theory with less followers than the moon landing and Holocaust hoaxes.

I think he chose CGI/NP because it was virgin territory. By being a pioneer, he writes his name to the theory. It is a desire to be a leader.

I just sent a message to Ace Baker thru his website asking him to respond to either me or on this thread.

Perhaps he can clarify...if he's still alive (which I hope is the case)

Well he never actually presented his "challenge" in any meaningful way that would reach beyond those who believe his theories. That and reading the challenge, it gives him so many outs as to say, "No, no; la la la! Listen to me I helped compose the music for an animated Barbie movie!", when faced with any evidence against him.

He can't because he has been banned, although that hasn't stopped him before. In fact...he could be here right now!!!! [cue scary music]

Reminds me of the truther in California who immolated himself: a call to action that went entirely unheeded. Most media outlets wisely decline to report such desperate insanity.
My favorite part of the interview was when Dr. Fetzer invoked my name, Galileo, in an attempt to save Ace Baker's life.

Maybe it wasn't a hoax. Maybe he's just a really, really bad shot.
