Default Dates..

Very interesting that in much of this interview Russell Edwards emphasises the religious dates of Michaelmas.

He then goes on to say that the murders were the early hours of the following day. Surely ALL religious days end at midnight, same as any other days.
That's like saying "It was Bonfire Night yesterday, so I'll set off a few fireworks today" (sorry, not the best example).
Based on such frivolous logic, credibility should then be given to theories supporting the location of the C5 murders (e.g. Mapping out the Jewish symbol of Kabballah etc).
You could go on endlessly searching for dates relevant to the suspects which coincided with the murders, perhaps a despised relatives birthday or a significant milestone date in their life...

Mr. Edwards seems well-practiced in his interview skills, but notice how defensive he gets when mentioning his critics.

"No, No No No and again I say No.

Robin would have been the one."

Good thinking, Batman.

Hello Amanda,

Not to mention that Liz Stride should have already qualified for the "event" and having done that dreadful deed, his "Jack" would not have needed to kill a 2nd woman...

Not to mention that his "Jack" completely ignored such horticultural celebration dates when killing Annie Chapman and Polly Nichols.

Not to mention that the shawl was presented in a radio interviem as "Eastern European" and is now "Russian"....

Not to mention how the shawl undergoes an ownership metamorphasis from being Eddowes shawl to Kosminski's shawl to Eddowes skirt (8ft x 2ft long) that cannot have been taken off the body on the way to the mortuary (radio interview) because the skirt was seen and listed AT the mortuary by a police inspector- who then presented the items of clothing removed from the body in a sworn written statement to the Coroner at the inquest.

All that and much much more BEFORE we get to the DNA problem.

In my opinion this man's theory cant fight its way out of a wet paper bag. It belongs in a bin marked "utter rubbish".

regards

Phil

Not Jewish religious days, they run from sunset to sunset, thus it's not technically even the night of the 8th but the Jewish 9th. Now what the heck a good Jewish boy is doing commemorating a Christian Day is another question all together.

Hi Gut,
Thanks for that piece of interesting info, had no idea it ran from sunset.
Hope you haven't opened that proverbial worm can...

Edwards states...The critics comments are "spurious" "nonsense" " non factual" "have no foundation" and "they don't need to answer the critics"...
Does that surprise anyone?

When someone has been presenting a 'Jack the Ripper Buffet Book' mixing everything at hand to such a high level one stops being able to distinguish between what critics have said and what he himself thinks. Having so many echos in his mind, one can't figure out which voice is his and which ones are those of the critics hence repeating whatever he hears. It's a symptom of what they call Gedankenlautwerden. LOL

G'day Phil

But if the facts don't fit with the train of thought [using that term loosely] don't change the way of thinking, change the facts, seems to be the way to do it.

I just can't wait for his next statement. You know like :"The critics are all jealous of my findings". And you all know what comes next:
