So what evidence do they have to back up their claims? Well, it’s just the usual bunch testimonials dressed up with pseudo-scientific language and lame appeals to science doesn’t know everything. Get a load of this from How Pherotones Work:
Modern science has only begun to unlock the secrets of the human brain. While making great strides in mapping the neural pathways and chemical triggers that incite various moods and behaviors, mainstream scientists have yet to grasp exactly what makes human beings, and their brains, tick.
Scientists don’t know everything about the brain so Pherotones work. I’m convinced. And of course the establishment wants to keep it secret:
Pherotones are presently too controversial and too hot for mainstream science. Established scientists, with their cushy university jobs, are afraid to probe the secrets of Pherotones too deeply, lest they offend the sensibilities of their colleagues. Only a brave few have dared to publish their Pherotone findings.
In reality, any scientist would jump at the chance to prove something like this works, if it did. The best evidence they have for this stuff is this lame video which I find hard to believe wasn’t faked (you have to watch it to the end to see what I mean). Who do they think they’re fooling?
