I still don't see the exact con or scam.
If people want to pay money and support a speaker then what is wrong with this?
Some of his claims may certainly be unproven and questionable, but is that a scam?
One would have to show a bit more in exactly how this is a scam, because often this looks like sour grapes from religions who are losing members and
cash-cows to David Icke.
He doesn't claim to be a messiah, he doesn't want people to worship anything - what you see is what you get.
He doesn't even encourage people to lose whatever faith they have, or to imagine no possessions (like some multimillionaire rock stars did).
My main concern would be his take on medicine, but I'd still still listen while reserving my right to disagree.
In fact, it's more important to hear the things with which I do disagree, because that allows me a right of reply, and knowledge is power.
It's easy to claim that he makes more money than this or that person without any proof.
But no matter how much he makes (or not), if people are willing to pay for his lecture that is their choice.
Why not delve into his material and show where the scams may lie?
That could be more fruitful than simply saying: "Somebody I somehow disagree with is being paid to give a lecture and that's a scam".
