Odd to see such behaviour from a supposedly grown adult, mind. I wonder whether some of these people have kids, and if so, how do they act in front of them?




The opposite.

Thanks (on behalf of Robert) for bumping this thread up and up and up though, all 500 have sold out

No worries, if I can bring any small shred of joy to your obviously otherwise complicated and incomplete life, then you just let me know, lol.

Have you any scientific proof for this being the case?

Off topic so lets get back to something much more believable. ; )
I do enjoy the story, I'm a bit of a nerd for all sorts of paranormal and cryptid stuff, I've just become less and less swayed by it all over the years through bits of research in my spare time.

I'm a huge Bigfoot nerd, as you can probably tell, lol. I don't go on about it much, though!

If I did, I'd share them with an adult who was capable of understanding it, Kaz.

Now, back on topic.

I gave you 4 errors, can you refute any of them, and can you give me 4 examples of the diary being genuine?

This is the third time I've asked today, and it kind of seems like you're avoiding it.

Indeed.

You clearly have zero respect for my opinion so I'll point you in the direction to a book by robert smith.

He has ALL of the answers (I kid you not)

Therefore, the chances of a single example appearing in a disputed diary with zero provenance, supposedly originating from years earlier, are astronomical. It would mean, for instance, that James Maybrick was not only the first person in recorded history to use the phrase, but no one else is recorded as doing so for more than a decade, and then in a very different technical context.

The odds against that happening must be at least several hundred million to one against, I.e. on the basis that the phrase could have originated from any individual, capable of writing English, over that period.
This has been my point all along regarding the chance and probability of the whole saga.

People are oddly quick to make a pass for so many glaring issues, and it's kind of perplexing.

James Maybrick is being put forth as a man who invented phrases, drank in pub's that didn't exist, wrote in two entirely different hands, could predict the future, and not only that, but on the side, he was the world's most notorious and successful murderer, evading capture, only to be thwarted by arsenic, and finding himself involved, post-mortem, in a massive poisoning case that had the world paying attention.

A man of many talents.

Hi Kaz,

Just pointing out that you stated there were several experts who said that the Diary had no linguistic anachronisms. Still waiting for you to list them.

Evidence of your claims. Proof, if you will. Still waiting. Or would you like to retract that statement?

I'd have some respect for you if you didn't act like an emotional teenager, Kaz.

I'd also have respect for your opinion, but you seem to not want to give one, despite me asking several times.

You're basically here for the shits and giggles. Strange, but hey, however you want to pass the time.

So you're 22?


Explains alot...


Your attitude towards the likes of us who remain open minded and are not convinced about your so called 'proof', stinks... I mean that without any nastiness attached, just a factual observation. Many have said similar.

Best get your mates involved now, help bump up your deflated ego (don't be so hard on yourself though, your condition is known to be quite debilitating...)
