Can He Be Serious???

April 30, 2014

“The Book was started on 30th April 2004, and is a unique record of the vast interest in ECE theory. It shows that ECE theory is mainstream and that the standard model of physics is obsolete. It would be interesting if a member of the British Government could analyze the book in various ways, for example to trace the history of readership of each item. This book analyzes the 2% sector to which I refer as “universities, institutes and similar”. The vast total interest has just been posted on this blog in the form of a referring URL’s file from Dec. 2006 which is several thousand pages long. ”

We can do some of the analysis ourselves: the top referring domain is AIAS (obviously) at over 1.6 million referrals. Google, in second place, accounts for only 80000. The conman Searl’s domain is in 7th place at nearly 14000. That is, Searl is the only ‘scientific’ referrer in this category, and he is a scientifically illiterate conman. Among the referring websites and URLs one spots the perpetual motion  conman Bearden (officially vouched for by Ron and AIAS in the past). After that, it all goes downhill. Why would those who were in search of Ron’s ‘erudition’  have come from such sleazy sites? Check it out: type in just about any dodgy  search term (sexy, casino, prosti, pussy, analsex,  f**k, overunity [i.e. perpetual motion], girls, aias, etc., and one finds it. NB: the “first-time swallows’ site is not about newly-fledged birds! This proves our ‘Boss Button’ theory. What about more technical terms? Well, all of the mentions of ‘scientific’ lead to anti-scientific websites. The promising-looking ‘Journal of Nuclear Physics’ is just a pseudoscientific rag run by an LENR (cold-fusion) conman. One wonders how someone who claims to be sane (he has an undated letter!) can possibly believe that these thousands of highly dubious visitors can do anything but undermine even further the credibility (haha) of the whole enterprise. Yes, Ron, please do have a government official look at it: way to get your Civil List pension pulled!

Pseudoscientometrics are a Shot in the … Foot

“Many thanks again to Steve Bannister, greatly valued. This pdf file can now be posted on www.aias.us and archived at the British Library to prove the vast amount of interest in ECE theory.”

We were going to make the point earlier that, if Ron can single-out only a few academic visitors each day … among hundreds … who are the others? Also, if the others have no clear reason to visit, how does he know that the prized ones do have? Now Bannister, the particularly loony example of a dodgy breed, has made the point for us. Have a look at the list of referring sites. Try to find a genuine scientific one among all of the Russian porn, etc.  Ron’s feedback is the only proof of his supposed success, as no real scientists cite his papers. The feedback is bogus. He is bogus.

“1) I have been a full professor at IBM an [sic] UNCC, and my title of Professor is in the Civil List. The tradition is that someone who has earned a professorship is addressed as Prof. even in retirement.”

No it is not, unless the person was granted emeritus status. Using it otherwise is on the same level as ex-soldiers calling themselves Colonel, etc.; as in the case of Bearden (before he bought his doctorate). You remember Bearden? Your AIAS clowns ‘explained’ how his MEG perpetual motion device ‘works’ and you personally let him write about it in Advances in Chemical Physics. What an insult to the memory of Prigogine. One of us met that Nobelist years ago, and he was no fan of pseudoscientists. 
“2) I am a Scientiae Doctor, a distinction higher than full professor.”

“Professor is not a qualification, it is an appointment. Tell us where one can study specifically to be a professor. “

“3) I am not mentally ill as his friend Phil Owen puts it”

It is the most generous explanation for observed behaviour”

“4) I was not “kicked out” of UNCC in 1995, I resigned in protest, and I was joined by many others who voiced protest, including the great theoretical physicist Jean-Pierre Vigier.”

Yes, because a student won ‘the battle of the smell’. Lots of people ‘jump before they are pushed’. What sort of  ‘great theoretical physicist’ attends the same conference as the conman Searl?

“5) Civil List Pension 2005, ten years after UNCC.”

A mistake which will be rectified

“6) Raised to Armiger 2008.”

Impressive only to other armigers.

“7) It is now almost twenty years after UNCC, so bringing up that old kipper is scraping the barrel”

Thankyou for revealing the exact smell involved above.

“This has been a problem ever since 1993, when I returned after a long absence.”

Surely you have not been responsible for all of the crime?! LOL. Oh, the dangers of poor sentence-construction. Still, if only you had been ‘an armiger, Civil List scientist and employee of the Queen’ in those days: that would have scared off Mr Morris, and no mistake. 

The problem is that unrestricted monoglot immigration is allowed, sometimes from the worst council estates. as soon as they arrive they attack the Welsh language. This is why monoglot immigration must be restricted. You have to stand up to them or they will walk all over the culture.”

Does that mean that the first Mrs Ron spoke Welsh? Does the present Mrs Ron speak Welsh? Pots and kettles again. Liekulis! лицемір! Rhagrithiwr!

Pots and Kettles Again

“This is an excellent summary by Gareth Evans, who witnessed all the events as they occurred. The conduct of these people was outrageously unethical, bordering on violent, so should be excluded from participation in scientific debate and scientific society. If they attempt mass e mailing they should be blocked, and they should not be allowed to disrupt scientific conferences.”

How nice it must be to receive support from such an … ahem … unbiased and distinguished scientist. Hold on, why is a ‘distinguished scientist’ doing such low-grade technical work at ‘Palookaville County Hall’? ‘Sewage’ Evans’ last contact with real science seems to have been an acknowledgement of his help in supplying real scientists with samples of polluted water.  With modification, we agree with all of the points made, of course.  Ron’s conduct is indeed outrageously unethical and bordering on violent, and he is de facto  excluded from participation in scientific debate and scientific society. His only supporters are ‘the usual suspects’: the small band of nutters who somehow manage to cling onto academic posts. But we can offer some hope of rehabilitation to Ron, if he employs these tips: get rid of the links to Searl and quack cancer ‘cures’, stop lying about the amount of feedback and the consequent supposed ‘success’ of ECE’, stop saying that free energy can be had from confidence tricks ranging from Bessler’s wheel  to et3m and stop referring to Vigier (he may have been OK in his prime, but he obviously went senile in later years and ended up on the same ‘bill’ as Searl at crackpot conferences) and the increasingly loony meetings held in his ‘honour’.  

A Propos of Nothing

We are very pleased to see that Ron now spells ‘garage’ correctly. He previously spelt it ‘garriage’; which is actually a term for gay marriage. It is nice to know that Der Fuehrer is still willing to take instruction from the better educated.  All that he needs to do now is to correct that glaring spelling error on the AIAS landing page. 

How Very True

“It is important to note that Rodrigues never attacks Carroll, and the latter if attacked would probably not respond. Senior academics do not respond to trolls.”

No, but Ron attacks Carroll when the latter’s mathematics do not give the results that Ron wants:

“Major Errors in Carroll Chapter Seven

Subject: Major Errors in Carroll Chapter Seven
Date: Thu, 9 Oct 2008 05:35:24 EDT

Dear Prof. Carroll,

I went through your chapters one to three of your notes and these are correct, I have gone through everything and also expanded greatly on the proofs. I found Cartan geometry to be very useful, and the tetrad postulate is correct. However, we have used computer algebra to show beyond doubt that black hole and big bang theories are incorrect ”

So tell us, Evans-the-Troll, did Carroll reply?

 

Ron’s Hissy-Fit

The question arises as to why Ron has to protest all by himself. If, as he contends, scientists have all secretly turned into ECE-believers and spend all of their time reading his papers, why do they not leap to his defence? It is almost as if they are imaginary and Ron has to  invent  the statistics. Meanwhile, our visitor-numbers and viewings have reached unprecedented heights today … with nary a word of complaint from Ron’s supposed fans.

 He is known to have indulged in extensive harassment of a Vigier Conference by e mail, with the same old rubbish. “

Now why would anyone want to harass a Vigier conference? Could it have something to do with the organizers?  Those responsible for ‘Vigier 8’ were: R.L. Amoroso (Director of the Noetic Advanced Studies Institute [believers in telepathy]), Peter Rowlands, Bo Lehnert, Horst Eckardt (perpetual-motion enthusiast), Elizabeth A. Rauscher (veteran believer in the paranormal), Salvatore Giandinoto (another Noetic employee) Alwyn van der Merwe (dismissed editor of Foundations of Physics Letters), Stanley Jeffers, Jean E. Burns (another Noetic layabout), Louis H. Kauffman, Michael Ibison (Institute for Advanced Studies [sounds grand, but is little more than wherever Harold Puthoff – of Uri Geller fame  – hangs his hat]), Christo Christov (mechanical antigravity believer), Josee R. Croca, Alex Hankey, John Dainton, Peter Marcer, Jeremy Dunning-Davies (believer in gyroscopic antigravity and fellow director of Rodrigues [which is why we are wary of the latter]). In other words, a pretty flaky bunch who raise the hackles of real physicists.

 

Rodrigues’ Email to Riecansky

April 15, 2014

We are posting the communication here, just in case Ron decides to delete it from his own blog. Yet again we are proved correct with regard to Ron’s lies.
Subject: false statement

Dear truth’s search:

Reluctantly, I feel unfortunately obliged to inform you that in his blog (04/14/2013) Mr. M. W. Evans stated:

….‘’Rodrigues was admonished by a senior barrister as “wildly pejorative”, in awarding me considerable financial compensation out of court, and by legal implication is a product of the lowest kind of gutter, having no scientific credibility. He had falsely accused me of being dangerous and insane, and this disgusted the barrister to the pit of his stomach. I had been sad over the deaths of my parents and some cousins, and loss of my first wife, and this was seized upon by Rodrigues in order to create disinformation. He should also be dismissed from Campinas, and I have complained to Campinas about him’’ ….

I declare here that I never in my life have been admonished by any barrister and I never paid any compensation to Mr. Evans (or to any other person), his statements are false. So he is a liar and/or as stated somewhere suffers from time to time from a delirious state.

Even more, if Mr. Evans can show any validdocument proving that I paid to him a given sum of money I immediately will send to him and to any AIAS fellow double that sum.

If someone gave any amount of money to him because of what I wrote, eventually it will be a good idea for all of you who needs money that I will write statements against you. Then you go the Mr. Evans ‘’senior’’ barrister and ask him to obtain a compensation… Of course, I do not want to receive any compensation in doing that.

Moreover, several medical doctors that I know in Brazil and abroad (ten in my own family, including a recently dead brother) never get infuriated by my opinion on Mr. Evans character, particularly to my proved statement that he is a liar and now, with the definitive proof given by his blog article that he suffers from a delirious state of mind.

Please, read with attention the attached document and get your conclusion. If you need additional information, please write to me.

I also declare here that that indeed Mr. Evans made a complaint against me to UNICAMP’S dean of research. He and all other members of the UNICAMP council only laugh a lot, because all know that unfortunately he is no more than a lunatic crackpot.

I also declare that I never act behind the scenes, all I think I write and publish using my name. Moreover, since a long time ago I even did not pay any attention to what Mr. Evans do, but after reading his blog today (after a fellow called my attention) I read many of his last papers and I can again state what I proved on several published papers long ago: Mr. Evans ECE theory is no more than a potpourri of bad use of mathematics and nonsense physics.

To end, here is a proposal which can prove once and for all to anyone if I, Hehl, ´t Hooft and others are right or if he is right. The proposal is:

 If Mr. Evans and collaborators want to come to Campinas and make a final examination on differential geometry and are all approved I will pay each one US$ 5000 plus living expenses and the air-tickets.

 If they fail they must pay me only US$ 1 and of course, will pay for their air-tickets and living expenses. Exam’s questions will be formulated in English with translations in Welsh, German, French, Italian, etc…, if required.

I reserve the right to publish their answers to the exam questions.

Sincerely,

Waldyr Alves Rodrigues, Jr.

Professor of Mathematical Physic
