One of the most important aspects of science if confirmation of experimental result. Results can be wrong because of errors, bias or scams. (of the
is an interesting example).
Currently a couple of people on JREF are busy reproducing the results of Jones and his team. Some additional experiments are done to determine whether
the substance contains thermite or not. (even though Jones results already strongly indicate that there is no thermite, still their results are
But to get back at the importance of confirmation of results, it is very telling that a request to get a sample of the material Kevin Ryan, one of the
people in Jones team, claims to be thermitic, was declined
. Kevin Ryan does not want the material to be tested by any independent party. Of
course he claims the party to be biased and deceptive, but has nothing whatsoever to back that accusation up.
Do you think it is good science when testing and confirmation of results by others is denied when requested?
