Here's the logic. If you've got a real effect, it'll be pretty easy to replicate anywhere, by anyone. No? You're right...it's spotty and erratic. Lots
of people from Naval Sea Systems to Blacklight have SAID they can do this, but it's not replicable, generally. There's also the dead research
assistant issue. If this is happening, there ought to be a lot more radiation than there is.
Am I saying you have to prove a negative? No, I'm saying you have to disprove all the research being done into cold fusion, which you cannot do.
Samey same. It's the Augean Stables challenge. "Disprove ALL research ever done!" No, prove that this research is replicable. No? You're right. Hasn't
been done reliably. That "disprove" statement implies proof of a negative. "Prove it's NOT true". Here's you a challenge - disprove that flying
monkeys don't come out of my arse. You can't. That's because I've asked you to prove a negative. Any request with "disprove" in will end up being
proof of a negative.
Take a look at MIT's Jet Energy Inc. NANOR device, which has been running since January of this year; producing 14 times energy gain/excess heat. Let
me guess; these MIT scientist must be experimenting with "porkies" because you can't have one in your home today?
14 is sort of the top. Most of the time it's much less. Let's see some other lab replicate it. (crickets)
Trust me, it would be nice if it were the sort of thing you could replicate. I'd LOVE for it to be true. But it needs to have some sort of theoretical
basis that doesn't require radiation, and it needs to be replicable anywhere, by anyone. If it's the sort of thing you just see at times, it's
anecdotal. And LENR/CANR is anything but replicable. See also: N-rays.
edit to add: I AM an engineer. Show me one. Show me a REPLICABLE one. You can't. It's not even replicable at MIT. "Show me one" is part of the
scientific method - it's called, oddly, replicability, and demands that anyone be able to do this, in any lab. If you can only get good results in one
place, it's a BAD thing.
edit to add further: The entire "works sometimes, doesn't work others" is sort of typical of beta decay/beta capture. LENR is still interesting, don't
get me wrong. I just don't swallow it as a 'given'.
