Yes, I can see you all now, (not literally of course....I don't want to make you think I'm really a mind-reader!), and can 'imagine' what is being said......."Oh No! not another story about the phenomena of 'divining' principals". Nevertheless, I do get very tired when I see supposed, 'knowledgeable' people, attempting to provide their 'expert' opinions to those who are now being challenged as to whether they are going to be ridiculed by their superiors in choosing equipment that, time-after-time, continues to play the same tune........"it can't possibly work"....."has been proven by independent 'test-authorities' to be no better than random chance, or the flicking of a coin"......"does not operate by any scientific principals" ....and to be honest.....all of these are fair comments......unfortunately, these comments are also seriously flawed and continually doubted.
I have recently seen comments posted to the randi.org website and the reason I have not replied to them directly is because they ask you to 'register' first.......why? If this is such a big concern to them, why don't they really go public........oh sure, you can read what they have to say, but lets' be honest here......who is going to reply to them if they have to register? Only other allegedly 'knowledgeable' people with 1,000's of years experience in the field......certainly not the end-users who will not be able to keep their comments 'private' but that have a wealth of experience 'on-the-ground' and are able to offer hands-on experiences with the products concerned and have, time-after-time, been able to prove their respective effectiveness; So, I decided to make my own 'blog' and to ask for anyone to "constructively" post their real concerns and comments over the workings, (or not), of such devices. Please note that I would 'ideally' want to hear from those people who have had direct experience with these products and not from those who just want to play on the words or direct comments of others. If you don't have anything constructive to say, then don't say it; However, if you genuinely want to understand, (baring in mind I am not going to give away everything.....[no, NOT that I do not know, but that I will not tell you].....then carry-on).
To start the 'ball' rolling, (again don't take me literally here as I am sure their are those 'out-there' that will hang on every word I write and therefore, the 'ball' rolling comment does not refer to me wanting to play games.....yes, you know who you are...), but my first 'blog-comment' is as follows:
Yes, the ADE, Sniffex, Alpha 6, and GT200, (formally known as the 'MOLE').....work.......However, I also know why (under certain conditions) they do not work and I therefore also know why the ADE (especially the ADE651) works the best, (but of course, I would say this...wouldn't I?).
What I will also be doing over the course of the next few months, is to also evaluate the effectiveness of other equipment and devices and to provide you an insight as to their respective effectiveness as well as supply some interesting comments and observations from both end-users as well as 'testing-authorities' that, you may find interesting.......(or not).....
