Victor Zammit demolishes the skeptics in his latest video. He even mentions me and SCEPCOP in it!

This person has been around for a long time. Watched one of his videos before. That showed he did not know what he was talking about. As for this one, only 623 views, ratings disabled and comments disabled. That alone says heaps.

The content is just him talking. Nothing can be verified.

Again no summary provided by the OP. I conclude he has not watched it himself, so why should I?

You shouldn't. I couldn't agree more, but I've been down the Zammit road with Mr. Wu before.

Zammit made many rational points in those videos. Yet all your skeptics could do was offer ridicule in return. In that way, you've debunked yourselves! lol

Victor Zammit on why Richard Dawkins is wrong about the Afterlife.

I will pay him $5000 if he can prove that Richard Dawkins is wrong. Vic talks in this video at length about energy being displaced and that the conscientiousness must survive because of this. That just plane doesn't make sense to me. Why is that? He doesn't say or even hint to a rational explanation for that. When you kill a fly, where does that energy go? Is it displaced on your fly-swatter?

It is true he doesn’t offer anything that would make me believe in the afterlife. That being said, Richard Dawkins and Randi aren’t that great either. Ones a zoologist the other one is a magician A MAGICIAN. You know how much money Randi is making, off skeptics to fund for his cause. He is a brilliant businessman. Richard Dawkins and especially Randi do not have the proper credentials to rule out the afterlife. What makes them so special that they have enough intelligence to rule out the unknown? That’s like saying you can count to infinity. The truth of the matter is, both sides do not have any evidence to say the afterlife does or does not exist, and if they say they do that is just ignorance at its finest.

Randi I have no respect for.

Anyone who says this.

"I want to be cremated, and I want my ashes blown in Uri Geller's eyes" Is just ignorant to the max. Pathetic

One of the weird statements is when Zammit says that as a lawyer. The "as a lawyer" comment means that he has to accept anything said as true unless he can prove otherwise. This has nothing to do with proof in any scientific manner, nor does it have to do with proof in anything having to with truth. It's legalize jargon for "a witness or document makes a statement". It's a rather meaningless concept outside of a court room.

Zammit always falls back on the claims that his lawyer days are related to being to being objective. This is not true. Lawyers work in the best interests of their clients. They are not supposed to act objectively. The court may make that claim, but not the lawyer. It is their requirement to act in the interests of their clients.

This little list of items has a number of totally baseless claims. Here is my favorite:

Zammit's claim is that being an atheist implies that Dawkins does not have "the skills and the competence and the ability to perceive evolution with true empirical equanimity."

Whoopee do dah. It's a claim with no backing, no substance, nada. It's a non-issue.

I just studied all his work.
He still bases himself around evidence from 19th century.
Some of his 'proof' was being debunked by Houdini.
I mean is it for real?
This is faith not a science. I am sorry but he doesn't prove or disaprove anything. The prize to prove his wrong also makes less semse than Randi'.

I pay a million to anyone who can prove tht God doesn't look like a giant belgium waffle.
He goes along philosophicaly and there is only one rule- noone is wrong, as many people as many philosphies.
I might be too much of a logical mind but this what he says is just his own beliefs.
