A prof. saying that Newton didn't happen is drawing a great deal of controversy today. James Tracy, the prof. saying Newtown didn't happen, is a tenured professor at Florida Atlantic University and a noted conspiracy theorist who is saying that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, which left 26 people, mostly children, dead, didn't happen.

James Tracy, the prof. who said Newtown didn't happen, wrote a lengthy blog post on the why the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting never occurred. In it, the prof. saying Newtown didn't happen discusses what he sees as inconsistencies in the official report, and concludes his analysis by blaming President Obama.

"As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends," he wrote in his blog post.

The prof. saying Newtown didn't happen claims that the whole ordeal, which left 26 people dead at the hands of gunman Adam Lanza, was a stunt perpetrated by the Obama administration to sway people's opinion on gun control.

"While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place -- at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation's news media have described," he said, according to the Daily Mail.

James Tracy, the prof. saying Newtown didn't happen, is basing his outrageous claim on the flurry of media reports that came out in the opening hours of the tragedy, many of which had conflicting information.

"Overall, I'm saying the public needs more information to assess what took place," James Tracy said, according to Radar Online. "We don't have that. And when the media and the public don't have that, various sorts of ideas can arise."

Florida Atlantic University, however, is distancing themselves from the prof. saying Newtown didn't happen.

"James Tracy does not speak for the university," Lisa Metcalf, media director for the university said, according to the Huffington Post. "James Tracy does not speak for the university. The website on which his post appeared is not affiliated with FAU in any way."

But James Tracy, the prof. saying Newtown didn't happen, isn't denying that people lost their lives. Instead, he is merely stating that he believes the numerous deaths that occurred at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting were the result of an Obama training exercise.

"Was this to a certain degree constructed?" he asked. "Was this a drill? Something most likely took place."
