View Full Version : Cynic Mayer's publicity stunts (was "Australian lawsuit")
02-27-2004, 10:37 AM
I saw on Celebrity Justice last night that JE has been sued by a skeptic in Australia under some truth in advertising law. Basically, the lawsuit seeks for JE to offer "proof" that his readings are real.
I just wonder if the same skeptic has sued all the churches in Australia demanding proof that God exists? :shrug:

I didn't think it had gotten that far............:rolleyes: :shrug:
The report is inaccurate. There is no lawsuit, please see this prior discussion regarding the "skeptic's" attempt to get publicity:

I saw the other posts after I posted this. I really hope that the suit hasn't been filed. I would think that unless this guy had actually gone to a seminar, he would have problems having standing to sue, but I don't know Australian law.
I don't think it can be called "suing" and a "lawsuit". It would be a consumer complaint filed with a government agency.
As you read in the other thread, that government agency has very politely said that no such complaint exists in their records, and they've promised us they would keep us updated if one comes in.
No worries mate ;)

Skeptics...why do they watch or have anything to do with something they dont believe in!!!!! (or maybe have no intention of believin).
In this case, because he can make money from it.
He's not a "skeptic" for the sake of his beliefs; he's a "skeptic" because he also stands to gain a lot of attention and money. The guy is in the entertainment business, he's a magician and has his own show, and he's trying to drum up business for his own show.
(The quotes are around "skeptic" because he does not fit the definition of a skeptic, which is, according to Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, "...An undecided, inquiring state of mind; doubt; uncertainty."
It further defines a "skeptic" as, "One who is yet undecided as to what is true; one who is looking or inquiring for what is true; an inquirer after facts or reasons."
This Mayer guy is not undecided, and he is not looking for truth. He is a cynic, not a skeptic.

well JE came, we saw.. he was amazing.. and we loved it!!
i think that this guy should just look after himself and his beliefes,(if he has any) and leave other people who CHOOSE (aren't forced) into believing in what JE does, is for real.. cause it is..
what will he question next.. is the sky really blue??
I'm going to pat myself on the back (and anyone else who saw this too) that I was right about the guy being a non-issue. You're right, JE came, he saw, and he conquered the hearts of those who bothered to come to see him in person.
The fact that nothing ever came from his "complaint" just goes to show that he was trying to get some free publicity from John's coat tails.
