    The burying of responsible journalism under internet-driven piles of garbage is the pernicious force responsible for much of the current mess that world finds itself in. Mats Lawan is but one of countless contributors to the fictionalization of public…

    Thinking for one second that Rossi spent 16 hours a day in his Doral strip mall site requires a suspension of disbelief and decopling from reality that has seldom been rivaled since the days when the ancient gods were popular.

    Adrian, FYI Shane not only does not think LENR is impossible, he is convinced that it exists. Unlike certain other individuals, however, he has not abandoned all semblance of critical thinking as a result.
  • So it appears that the active folks in the LENR field (Rossi, me356, Mills (maybe)et al) have absolutely nothing credible, replicable, and real, and the ones who had real results have all either retired, died, or given up the quest (as Jed…

    “No one here knows if it works or how it might work.”

    And yet there is a thread with over 900 posts arguing over the technical details of the taped-up sprinkler fitting and other random apparatus. Pretty typical.

    Jed's and Alan's comments which have no content other than criticism of skeptical people are considered on topic. Any comments that are sarcastic or otherwise critical of LENR supporters immediately move to the Clearance thread. More fair and balanced…

    It is always fascinating to hear the rationalizations for why anyone who has made an incredibly significant discovery that could change the world would not do the obvious things to prove it to the world. If they are “money motivated” then they are…

    I hope we can resolve this soon and get on to calculating just how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

    Buying into free energy breakthroughs must be a genetic thing. If you believe one of these people (which I suppose might turn out to be sensible), then you believe all of them (which cannot possibly be.)

    What good are vivid delusions if you can’t share them with others?

    While arguing about the motivations and integrity of barely-a-real-company IH is undoubtedly quite fascinating, it is mainly a deflection away from the rather obvious conclusion that no version of the e-cat has ever worked. And nothing said about IH,…

    Excellent news. I look forward to contnued progress from Defkalion. Armed with your theory, they are a shoe in.

    I see. Defkalion told you that their gizmo worked, so therefore it did. Good to know.

    Once again, Axil’s declarative statements indicate that either (1) he has the inside scoop, (2) he is psychic, or (3) he is making it up. Which do you think it is?

    The Rossi believers here will tell you that the demo was not supposed to prove anything or provide any insights. The entire purpose was to impress and attract potential investors. You have to admit that a piece of apparatus that looks like it was put…

    Mary, you have to use some imagination. That apparatus could be duct-taped to the back of a space capsule and be used to propel it to Mars... if you had a long enough extension cord.

    “being a real person (instead of an anonymous handle) increases the probability of honesty with several orders of magnitude”

    Nope. Probably a little bit, but many people have no problem whatsoever with lying. Read the news.

    Apart from honesty,…

    Tony, it is too bad that your astute analysis is totally hypocritical. You have no problem accepting all kinds of speculative, inconsistent and outrageous garbage as long as it is favorable to your view. Only negative information requires strict…

    Let’s apply the Tony Standard to your comments here. Were you present for Rossi’s work? No. Are you a “real person”? Nope.

    Conclusion: everything you say is worthless.

    So why do you bother?

    The Rossi acolytes are trying the tag team strategy and Tony is at bat. Too bad they all have the same 2-sentence playbook. Ignore all the facts and attack skeptics for citing them. Incredibly effective so far.
