More Incest

May 27, 2013

The Penderghastly biography of Ron has been cited 111 times. Every citation is due to Ron! This must be unique in publishing history. Also unique must be the degree of control which Ron exercises over his followers: even some of Jim Jones’ cult-members swerved the cyanide.  Not one of Ron’s followers tries to answer us back, even though they must want to. We shall fear for their safety, the next time that a comet appears in the sky.

Update added 26th December 2013. Believe it or not, Penderghastly has now had the temerity to review his own book on Guess how many stars he awarded it.


‘Noble Gas Engine’ Scams

May 25, 2013

“Early versions of the noble gas engine (Papp engine) used radioactive sources to excite the gas, before sparking it, but the inteligentry engine has no radioactive parts, instead the RF pulse adds the needed NMR boost.”

The Papp engine is notorious because it was examined by Richard Feynman before a demonstration. The contraption exploded, killing one man and tearing an arm off another. Papp the conman should have been charged with negligent homicide but, believe it or not, Feynman was forced (by Cal Tech) to apologize to the crook! The FBI does not suppress technology; it suppresses investment fraudsters like Inteligentry. We hope that Hill and Searl are on its radar.

“The combined ECE sites have been read over thirty million times in a decade. The feedback is very accurate and objective.”


Not read: clicked-on and then ignored! The longer this fiasco continues, the more pathetic the claims of influence become. Ten years, and the only references to their published work are made by themselves, plus a few critics. Look at Ron’s journal: over 98% of the papers are written by Ron and his stooges, and they are cited only by … Ron and his stooges! Both accuracy and objectivity demand that AIAS be rated a worthless ‘incestuous’ den of pseudoscientists. 

Ron Still Catching Up

May 23, 2013

“In astronomy, even the largest x factors are quite close to one (binary neutron stars and so on) so nature seems to restrict the orbits to that tiny part of what is possible.”

Duh! Has Ron never heard of Bertrand’s Theorem, which states that there are only two force-laws (Hooke’s and Newton’s) which produce stable closed orbits? This is all very painful; like watching someone draw lots of triangles and finally conclude that – for some of them – a^2 + b^2 = c^2!


Ron’s New Friend: Richard Hole (in Head)

May 20, 2013

“Free energy is everywhere. It includes wind, solar and hydropower. However there is always a cost to build a devise [sic] to harness the energy. The force of wind produces energy by moving a turbine. Likewise the force of a magnet could produce energy. Well-known forms of free energy are unreliable and the cost to produce devises [sic] to harness the energy is high. Energy created from magnets could overcome these problems. In fact there is strong evidence these devices have already been built several times but the technology has been suppressed because it was a threat to the people trying to control the world. Please see for more information. Richard Hole”

“Many thanks indeed! I will forward these ideas to the engineers of AIAS. At present LENR looks very promising and a few recent UFT papers have been dedicated to this topic. We will be discussing this in an AIAS conference in Aberystwyth and at my home here in July.”

Another nutter who thinks that magnets are a source of energy … and is a conspiracy theorist to boot. He doesn’t have a leg to stand on (correction: he has one). But doesn’t he know that Ron has started to close down his company which was to develop perpetual-motion and anti-gravity machines?  One wonders why the Evans’ keep mentioning their past glories; don’t they realise that their current activities take the shine off their various gongs?

Sincerest Form of Flattery

May 16, 2013

“This looks very interesting as usual. Since ancestors multiply in a power series then back over thirty generation there are 2 power thirty ancestors = 1.07 ten power nine ancestors, or 1.07 gigaancestors. That goes back about a thousand years, when the population of Wales might have been no more that fifty or a hundred thousand. So there must have been a lot of intermarriage of cousins and so any family who has been in Wales a thousand years will be related to any other family of that age, that means all families, not just the ones who have found the records.”

We pointed this out long ago (13th January 2013). What Ron does not seem to appreciate is that this makes nonsense of all of his ‘name-dropping’ of famous relatives.

Royal Society Goes for the Hat-Trick of Shame

May 10, 2013

Who could have ever imagined that the Royal Society could sink any lower? Firstly, according to Ron, it backed his being awarded a Civil List Pension. Then it awarded a prestigious Hauksbee Medal to Pendergast, his biographer, lap dog and anti-Einstein freak.  And now it has elected Prince Andrew to be a Fellow. One wonders what earned him this accolade; his friendship with arms merchants, with despotic dictators or with sex offenders? Are we entering a new Dark Age?


May 8, 2013

We are very much looking forward to attending the conference, even if our invitations have unaccountably got lost in the post, and to asking some pertinent questions at the end of each talk.

Was It Something We Said …?

May 8, 2013

ECE Technologies Ltd will soon be no more. On the 19th April, Ron began the voluntary striking-off procedure at Companies House. This company was supposed to be the ‘great white hope’ of perpetual motion, and was intended to bring forth the practical fruits (free energy, anti-gravity) of Ron’s imagined theoretical discoveries.  This is therefore a very clear admission by Ron that his theories are wrong. We look forward to receiving his apology for having ever doubted us.

More Harassment

May 8, 2013

We think that Professor (emeritus) Graham Williams should complain about ‘Professor’ (no merit) Ron having posted his private address online; thus making him a potential target for other crackpots. Ron is becoming quite the serial offender:

“[Atkins]  held one competitive post doctoral at UCLA from 1964 and was appointed to tenure at Oxford as a lecturer, without competition. He has produced no research work of any note, no papers in about thirty years, and has concentrated on textbooks. These are fairly useful, but no more than that. He describes himself as a well known atheist*, but in reality he is known only as a minor textbook writer.**”




Many a True Word …

May 8, 2013

“The academic cult of personality is modelled on this, so that nondescripts and nonentities can make images of themselves. I think that this is very unhealthy because the cult is aimed at negating real talent*….  I have had many dealings with people like this, out of touch with reality. Unless they are controlled they can do great damage, being microstalins in their own right. This does immense harm to science because it inhibits imaginative thought, and reduces science to totalitarianism.**  So this is why it is important to bring things out in to the open in truthful history.”

Written, without a trace of irony, by the leader of a minute cult whose members listen only to him. Fortunately, nobody who matters listens to any of them. If is really getting thousands of appreciative hits, where are the citations and personal e-mails which should logically follow on from them? Note: Pendergast’s biography has been cited 111 times to date. ALL of the citations are by mini-Stalin … or should that be mini-ME?


** E.g.

“Complaint Against Waldyr Rodrigues

Prof. Dr. Ronaldo Aloise Pilli,
Vice President for Research,

I wish to request the dismissal of one of your employees, Waldyr A. Rodrigues Jr., in that he has committed vicious libel against me to third parties.”

“Police Investigation at Penn State

I can see by feedback that there is a police investigation going on at Penn State University, University Park, probably into the activities of cyberstalker suspect Akhlesh Lakhtakia, the only person I know there. This should be extended in my opinion to TU Darmstadt and known cyberstalker Gerhard Bruhn, known to be an associate of Lakhtakia, and known to be someone who has attacked ECE theory with false or misleading mathematics, false proofs, deliberately contrived errors and so on. Gerhard Bruhn has also attacked the British Head of State in derogatory terms. This shows the extent of the failure of the modern university system compared with a free thinking institute such as AIAS. University cyberstalker “Arthur Dent” has been talked to by the South Wales Police, he was traced to the town of Barry near Cardiff, and turned out to be an ex member of staff of the so called “University of Wales”.

etc., etc.,

Crackpot Relativity

May 5, 2013

There is a link, on the AIAS site, to one of John Searl’s websites. Searl, it will be recalled, is an investment conman who has dined out for over 60 years on his tales of a levitating burn-healing perpetual-motion machine which nobody has ever seen, and which he has been ‘trying to re-build’ for … over 60 years (any contribution gratefully accepted). On at least one of Searl’s websites, there is a link to AIAS. All very cosy*. But who is the ‘senior partner’? Whose site/work is the more popular; that of the illiterate petty thief and saboteur or that of the ‘wizard of the Welsh mountains’ (we think that Ron should inherit Grindell-Matthews’ old soubriquet)?  Well, according to Alexa, the AIAS site has a ranking of 21,056,050 out of some 30M, whereas has a ranking of 1,395,089 out of some 30M. The implication is clear: until Ron starts vigorously to seek funding for his ‘space-energy’ devices (a company is already in place) he will not be taken as seriously as Searl.

*We almost forgot: a  Dr T.W.Barrett who backed Ron’s ludicrous B(3) theory also wrote a paper ‘explaining’  how Searl’s non-existent machine worked. Not for the first time do we wish that there was some mechanism for removing doctorates from the undeserving.

The Boss-Button Theory

May 2, 2013

On the last occasion that Ron listed the sites which visitors were on before clicking on, we noted that none of them could be considered properly scientific: a large percentage had come from the sites of John Searl (a perpetual-motion and antigravity conman), of Progress in Physics (a crackpot journal) and of New Scientist (by far the worst ‘popular science’ magazine in the world). A very large percentage of visitors had come straight from pornographic sites. This has led us to a theory as to why Ron’s site gets lots of hits from academic, technological and military IPAs, and yet nobody ever cites any of his ‘brilliant work’.  Our theory is that all of these people are goofing-off during work-time and watching pornography. However, being clever people, they have pre-set their computers to log-on instantly to an anodyne site – at a touch of a single button – when anyone in authority walks past. Older readers will know that such a device, known as a boss-button, was built into many video games. But why choose Ron’s site rather than, for instance, the website of Journal of Applied Physics? We cannot be sure, but one possibility is that being found on a slightly embarrassing (to a professional scientist) website would offer an excuse for any residual nervousness or blushing.

Home Economics

May 2, 2013

Ron’s incompetence knows no bounds. This may not be obvious to most readers, with regard to his nonsensical physics theory, but it becomes obvious with regard to more mundane matters:

“As you know you can rent 48 Rhyddwen Road for at least 500 pounds a month, 6,000 pounds a year. The costs of running it are at least 10,000 pounds a year so in at most seven years or so you will receive or save 120,000 pounds, the asking price of the house. You can probably ask 800 pounds a month in rent, almost 10,000 pounds a year, and in twelve years you will make 120,000 pounds and still own the house.”

So where is he supposed to live, cost-free, in the meantime? Presumably he does not have a second home, as Ron would have gone berserk about that. Perhaps Ron should recommend his brilliant plan to those interest-only mortgage house-buyers who will not be able to afford to pay off the capital: all that they have to do is to live in a tent in their own garden for twelve years, and rent their house to wealthier members of society!

“At the end of 125 years, the term of the first Trust, it is estimated that the capital will be worth about 706 million pounds by today’s money, assuming a growth rate of 7% per annum.”

Yes, and by then – at the current rate of inflation – a cheap loaf of bread will cost some £74

“I am in excellent health and estimate that I could manage the growth for the next twenty years before handing over to the Trustees. With such a large capital, buying back 48 Rhyddwen Road would be very easy at some point when it is on the market.”

However, the above figures suggest that the current value of the trust is £150000, so why does Ron not liquidate the trust right now and buy No.48 immediately? Or is it that the 150K consists only of the putative value of No.50? In that case, he cannot assume a growth of 7%, as growth will depend upon the housing market (not on a bank’s interest rate), and that is currently and decidedly in the doldrums. Also, he cannot realise that asset anyway without losing his own home. Ron’s plans seem to fall somewhat short of financially astute. 


May 2, 2013

“Open Letter to Ellis O. Williams. As you know you can rent 48 Rhyddwen Road for at least 500 pounds a month, 6,000 pounds a year. The costs of running it are at least 10,000 pounds a year so in at most seven years or so you will receive or save 120,000 pounds, the asking price of the house. You can probably ask 800 pounds a month in rent, almost 10,000 pounds a year, and in twelve years you will make 120,000 pounds and still own the house. If you sell it you will lose it permanently. A lot of people are deeply concerned about the state of the Welsh language, selling it means that it will almost certainly be bought by a monoglot English speaker.  As the attached document shows you are the only owner, and I have a fee simple right on the land as per attached publicly available information. I will continue to be helpful and if there is an emergency of some kind you can rely on my help. Recall that I was brought up in your house and I am obviously not happy that it is being sold abruptly. Several others are not happy at an outright sale so we urge you to consider the renting option. ”

We consider this letter, telling a neighbour what to do with his own property, to be threatening in tone and designed to marshal ill-feeling against the occupier within the community. We think that Mr Ellis should make a formal complaint about it. It may be mild harassment, but Ron always rails against even milder slights. How typically two-faced of him.
