That's very well said. I'd like to add something to this.
If a basketball player doesn't make his free throw when the game is tied with 0:01 left in the 4th quarter, is it because he's a bad player? To those
who are brainless, yes. But I'm sure most of you know you'd have to look at his form/technique to really evaluate that situation.
On the topic of RV, in order to understand WHY this man hasn't accurately predicted events, you'd have to understand how RV works in the first place.
1) Does one see clear and vivid images? Or is it obscure?
2) Do you see many visions over a short period of time, therefore needing to make sense out of it all before the images fade from memory?
3) If the predictions were made by his institute, how skilled is/are the person(s) who made the predictions?
4) How does one differentiate between imagination and imagery as a result of RV?
I can go on for hours.
These basic questions would need to be answered first, before writing someone off as a phony, because what I find, is that when it comes to things of
this nature, the accusers have never seriously investigated the topic being addressed, nor are they ever experienced in the matter, whatever it might
be. People act as if something this extraordinary, if true, is as easy as lifting weights, which surprisingly, many people at the gym don't even
You're all simply not thinking critically.
This isn't simply a matter of "if he was wrong = he's a phony".
I recommend, before the nonsensical accusations continue, that we outline the steps one would have to take in order to successfully perform RV, find
where the difficulties lie, and then try to see if those respective difficulties apply to the faulty predictions that were made. That to me, seems
like a clearer way of approaching this.
And, IF one cannot conduct a simple investigation such as this, but only use tired examples of "selling consumer products for profit", or , then
nobody has any valid reason to conclude that he is/is not committing a fraud. It's as simple as that.
I'm not saying those who purchased his books were right either. Both sides are simply not looking at this carefully enough.
