The Sandy Hook Conspiracy, first posed by Professor John Tracy from FAU, seems to be gaining steam. Now, "Newtown Truthers" are looking to get the word out about the Sandy Hook conspiracy and expose what really happened -- and the Newtown Truthers claim to have evidence that what the media reported isn't what actually happened.

"You know in your heart that no one could walk into a school and start shooting defenseless little kids," Jay Johnson, who runs the site SandyHookHoax.com, says on the page. "They are trying to alter mass perception of the human condition, so that people feel insecure and trust only the government to make things safe."

Jay Johnson, who calls himself "New Age Messiah," prides himself on being "the only person in the world to solve LOST," and points out the inconsistencies that led him to the Sandy Hook conspiracy on his site, the tagline of which is "It seems unbelievable because it is."

One of the hallmarks of the Sandy Hook conspiracy that Newtown Truthers point to as "absolute truth" is the fact that one of the girls who was killed is seen the next day.

"You reported in December that this little girl had been killed," a reader said in a letter to Salon.com. "She has been found, and photographed with President Obama."

The girl in question -- Emily Parker, who was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting -- is seen in a pre-shooting photograph wearing a flowered dress, the same dress the girl who meets President Obama days after the shooting is wearing. While her parents said the girl with President Obama is her sister wearing the same dress, Newtown Truthers and Sandy Hook conspiracy believers say it's the same girl.

"BAM! I cannot believe how idiot these people are [sic] ... That's her," one YouTube commenter says. You can see that video below.

Other evidence the Sandy Hook conspiracy Newtown Truthers point to includes misinformation that spread in the early moments of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, including questions about shooter Adam Lanza's car and early reports of multiple shooters.

"No motive whatsoever has been established for Adam Lanza doing this, and there is no record of him doing anything cruel to anyone, ever, and yet they are forcing us to believe that he did it, without providing one speck of actual evidence, and despite lying to us from the beginning," Johnson says on his website.
