Via my Google alerts for Adam the DreamHealer, I found this post on the HealthWatcher blog, entitled “Response to Skeptics”. It is supposed to be a response to skeptics (like me) who doubt Adam’s healing claims, and point out the fallacies employed by proponents of this kind of (so-called) healing. I jumped on it in interest, wondering what he would have to say – what his “response” to us skeptics would be.
Unfortunately, it was no response at all. Get this:
Over the last 4 years Adam has shared his experiences and abilities with thousands of people. He has spent many dedicated hours talking to each individual at the workshops. His teachings of healing techniques have helped many around the world as is evidenced by the hundreds of testimonials posted on his website and the overwhelming positive response at his workshops.
This is a standard, lame appeal to popularity – but nothing to counter anything skeptics would have written. He continues:
… as Adam’s popularity continues to increase, so will [skeptics’] uninformed voices.
Fighting talk. Except the writer doesn’t give one example of where skeptics are uninformed. The whole post is just one long whine about how the mean skeptics oppose Adam – but not one reason why we shouldn’t.
I’d leave a comment on his blog except you have to register and log in before you can comment. Still, read the post and consider this is the best “response” to skeptics that Adam’s fans can come up with.
