So apart from directing us to various weblinks, what proof do YOU have?
Unlike some people, I dont have hours on end at my disposal to trawl round the internet looking at various websites.
You still havent told us what your credentials are.
Some of are already aware of the credentials of the "great debunker", James Randi and some of the others you have posted links to.
BTW...I thought the $1million prize fund from the JREF was awarded when someone could prove they had supernatural ability ie paranormal activity etc under scientific conditions.
Are you now saying that these detection devices are used via some mystical, paranormal power of thought??
As I've just read on the Randi website, he himself doesnt actually offer any proof that this equipment doesnt work, only a statement offering someone/ anyone the opportunity to step forward and attempt to prove that it doesnt work.
Okay. Here’s a simple statement from the James Randi Educational Foundation. It’s in clear, basic English, plain language, direct and unequivocal. It’s directed to any of the manufacturers, distributors, vendors, advertisers, or retailers of the ADE651® device as described above:
This Foundation will give you our million-dollar prize upon the successful testing of the ADE651® device. Such test can be performed by anyone, anywhere, under your conditions, by you or by any appointed person or persons, in direct satisfaction of any or all of the provisions laid out above by you.
No one will respond to this, because the ADE651® is a useless, quack, device which cannot perform any other function than separating naïve persons from their money. It’s a fake, a scam, a swindle, and a blatant fraud. The manufacturers, distributors, vendors, advertisers, and retailers of the ADE651® device are criminals, liars, and thieves who will ignore this challenge because they know the device, the theory, the described principles of operation, and the technical descriptions given, are nonsense, lies, and fraudulent.
Prove me wrong and take the million dollars. I am James Randi, citizen of the United States of America, resident in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and thoroughly identified through the James Randi Educational Foundation described at www.randi.org
Now call me a cynic, but are you merely trying to get your hands on this piece of equipment so that you can apply to the JREF and attempt to get your hands on the prize fund?
If so, I applaude your entrepreneurship in these times of the so-called global credit crunch.
As yet though, you still havent offered any proof, scientific or otherwise as to why you maintain that these people are criminals and hoaxers. All you have done is repost other peoples views on the subject and even then, some of those are pretty sketchy.
I have no objections to people giving an alternate viewpoint of things and making others stop and think, but I also prefer to have all the FACTS at my fingertips to enable me make a judgement or come to my own opinion on things.
When you have proper facts, researched by yourself and not just via websites, but thru proper R&D materials and reports from testing and also from proper "in-the-field" accounts, then I'm sure people will be more than interested to hear what you have to say.
At the moment though, you are just sounding like someone with an axe to grind.
Of course people here are concerned if peoples lives are at risk, and for you to say otherwise is rather disrespectful to the people who you are trying to gain support from.
As for the UK not using this equipment, perhaps its because there is such a thing as a procurment chain of command in place...who can really say??
By the time the MoD is likely to give any equipment the go-ahead, its more than likely to have already been superceded by something else. So in effect, there is time yet, for this equipment to find its way to our guys.
unless of course, you prove otherwise
