homeopathy

Following up the comments about homeopathy -- the basic idea of diluting 'active' ingredients to less than one molecule concentration seems indisputably ridiculous and clinical double blind tests have been conducted with (apparently) some anomolous results. The current "new scientist" carries the co...

whatever

Shout - I got a PM back from Edward stating that he wasn't going to be going ahead with the doco -- many months back now .

I still think that a documentary would be better than a once off evening news type of story -- anyone else willing or able to take it up?

lockheed etc

Readers might not be aware that Lockheed has "form" when it comes to offering bribes to foreign officials when seeking contracts . Prince Bernhardt of the Netherlands was exposed to have taken bribes from Lockheed in return for influencing the purchase of Lockheed Starfighters for Holland (Mike G ma...

aims etc

Taking the 'how well does it live up to it's aims?' at face value or at least the published 'syllabus' for the public introduction course I once (see archives ) drew attention to one telling example;namely the" Chief Seattle Speech", that may not be familiar to new readers so will summarize here. Th...

"men" again

Better be quick..... there is that gosh darn word again "Men" ...as in "between men.." etc -- damned sexist bastards !!!!!! Seriously though, I have contacted the charities commission and asked if the bona fides of the SES have been checked lately (and auditted) -- like who is the recipient of any '...

bad karma

NYC . thanks for your insight , yes It was in 2005 -- I haven't been in contact with the young English bloke or his mother for nearly a year - perhaps I could get the detail from them if you liked. The whole concept of reincarnation is intriguing -- let me state my position as being non religious bu...

women's treatment in the SES

The treatment of women in the SES -- a big subject. By observation, the tutor in the Melbourne class had an 'assistant' (not named as such just sitting next to the tutor and occasionally used as a 'sounding board' during his tutorial ) ,a woman, clad in a long floral pattern dress and sitting withou...

legal action

Justice! As you would know this subject has been raised a number of times and yet nobody has shown any inclination to actually want to remove the source of the problem. I do not think that your reading every testimony would alter anything in regards to the aspect of taking legal actions (only to con...

other hindu cults etc

Justice! You are correct about this cult but I fear politically incorrect in mentioning it . By comparing SES to other cults which readers may have no experience of you risk 'devalueing' the individual personal experience or will be branded 'irrelevant' or worse. You might recall the response to my ...

feigned ignorance

Postscript correction -- I DID delete the 'offending' statement suggesting finding a name (those who first read the thread would know this to be true ) and apologized for letting myself be goaded to doing it and for any genuine ,not feigned, offence. (see above) ADG had conceded nothing about 'black...

misrepresenting compensation

References to "hardened activists" and denigration of compensation might need to be corrected. Under law most sporting or cultural ,non profit etc bodies that sometimes accumulate considerable assetts cannot be 'taken over' by any individual or group and/or 'stripped' for their benefit . In the even...

the apology thing....

Greetings, Having just caught up with the last two weeks of the forum I am none the wiser as to where it is going . The subject of this thread is "An apology from the SES" - presumably for the corporal punishment and mental anguish associated with the St James schools (only) and the insistent calls ...

but by whom?

Who to conduct an enquiry? Depends to some extent what you are looking for. SES and the schools seem to shelter under some charitable status -- this does not seem legitimate -- govt enquiry ? Would there be an ecumenical religious body that would be interested to look into it's religious nature whil...
