A marketing trick
on 14 February 2004
I have been practising the five and the additional sixth rite for a year now, performing them at least once a day 21 times and, I have not noticed any change whatsoever. I do not look younger and I get sick as often as other people who do not use the rites. I do feel a slight energy uplift, however that you also get from any other physical workout.
To all those people who claim to look years younger because of the rites I have one thing to say: show me. Show me a "before" and "after" picture.
Doesn't it explain a lot that so far all these "miracles" were only described on paper? Why are there no pictures of colonel Bradford? Maybe because then the myth would be dispelled? Who would believe in the rites if you would see a picture of a 74 year old man (looking 74) who claims to look like 40? Who would still want to buy the fountain of youth book then and use the rites?
Is it not the best advertisment to actually show people the miraculous results of the system? All those dietary systems use pictures to prove the effectiveness of their systems, why not do the same for the rites?
I have to conclude that is because the rites do not work and the author(s) know it. But hey it's an easy way to get money. Tell people that with a minimum of effort they can reverse the aging process and become young and healthy again. All you need to do is buy our book (wait let's write a second book which just repeats the same crap so we can even make more money). And people buy into it, ofcourse.
If you are interested in the rites, by all means try them. But be critical, keep questioning and draw you own conclusion, like I did.
