Psiclops, have you heard about a couple instances on Dutch tv where Robbert was supposedly caught out?
The most famous example of this was the 'genverbrander' case. In the show, Robbert visited the widow of a cameraman (who had worked for the channel the show was on) who had comitted suicide. After giving her some generalities about her husband 'being in the light', he suddenly blurted out a bunch of very specific information on the previous life the widow had had with her husband. Unfortunately for him, he relayed a typo that was present in the historical web page that he'd memorized. He gave the profession of the supposed previous incarnation of the cameraman as 'genverbrander' (gene burner), stipulating that he did not know what such a strange word meant. TV watchers who googled the name of the historical person themselves, soon found that the profession was listed on other web pages as 'geneverbrander' (gin distiller).
This mistake became so famous in Holland that the word 'genverbrander' was chosen as Word of the Year by some news web site. Poor Robbert became somewhat of a national laughing stock. The web page containing the typo still is present at http://home.tiscali.nl/jhberends/Gen...%20wessels.htm
Another obvious case of fraud on the TV show about him was seen when he was taking pictures of a blank wall with his digital camera. He had 'seen' the image of a nun there before. After exclaiming that he managed to photograph this image, he handed the camera to the show's presenter, who excitedly started paging through the pictures. This showed, on-screen, that there were multiple nun pictures dated several minutes *after* the one he was exclaiming about.
So sorry about the delay in getting back to you on this one.
You may remember earlier in the thread I told of my concern over bowel cancer...
Well as you can imagine I've been busy dealing with this matter but the good news now is that following an operation to remove the diseased section of bowel, a biopsy has found no traces of cancer remaining.
There were eleven lymph nodes connected to the tumour and all eleven are free of cancer and no infection of the blood or spread elsewhere in the body.
I still have a colostomy which is permanent and still have to have chemo to 'mop up' any remaining rogue cells but at last I have hope for a future!
Thank you all for your good wishes and healing thoughts.
Now back to Robbert.....
Yes I've heard of course of the genverbrander case which the sceptics did go to town on.
Robbert's defence is that he didn't view the webpage with the misspelling beforehand and then cheat with the reading. He argues he viewed the webpage psychically with the misspelling at the time of the reading!
It does sound I agree like an excuse but remember he does claim his psychic abilities are able to 'scan' the web for pictures which then are reproduced paranormally on his camera screen.
In this case he says he saw an "archive" psychically and read it.
Anyway here's a YouTube link in which he explains (in English) his defence of the genverbrander issue. Robbert tells about the unjust criticism he received in the Netherlands - YouTube
