Or, "you just aren't interested in the topic."I read that article years ago (or one like it, covering the same topic) and loved it.
What amazed me is that ....... just like we see on md'ing forums (among those that think that the magic wands or dowsing works), is that : Whenever a test shows that they DON'T work, then you can be SURE that the proponent will merely say : 1) "You're not operating it correctly" or 2) "You need more practice", or 3) "durned those solar flare sunspots", blah blah. It's NEVER that it doesn't work.
And we see the same logic among the proponents (even the user-customers !), in that link of yours. It says : "Astonishingly, perhaps, some officials still blame user error or even the weather for the device's failure to detect explosives"
But when they finally randomly find an object, or explosive , then presto: It works. Never mind that it was eventual random chance and gut hunches of which way to point the wand.
And as far as taking them apart to study their innards, that too doesn't disprove them. Because any scientist that says that the inside components don't do anything, will just be accused of "Not understanding it". Or that it's "undiscovered science", blah blah blah.
