Thank you Thylacine, for actually taking the time to really find out about this guy. He does seem like a charlatan to me too. I mean if I had all those powers he claims to have, I would ask 'God' to make me filthy rich overnight and then I wouldn't have to sell all those CDs and talismans that he's selling through his videos and website. And he claims to cure dogs with tumor and fish is aquariums, like
And apparently he's "dined with God" too.
Really? How is watching his videos "looking into him"? Honestly? He just looked out of curiosity, he didn't "look into him". And from what I've seen of Thylacine he won't say he did.
I looked him up on the The American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology; maybe you didn't know what I meant, so I'll clarify.
But, seriously read what I posted. If you are sincere then you truly want to learn. The links I provide gives some overview of "how" to be skeptical. I'm quite fond of the "baloney detection kit".
Here, I'll elucidate on what I did and meant.
A 'net search shows self-promotion spam. But, there is a link that may have some value, if only for the start of the research.http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Mitchell_Gibson.html
What is vitals.com? Well, according to http://www.killerstartups.com/Search/vi ... bad-doctor
it's a "
Vitals.com is a recently launched site that aims to work as the centralized source of information on doctor performance, as per rating of its patients, colleagues and by displaying general information on her/his practice and specialties. The idea behind the site is to allow patients to make an informed decision on the person who is going to take care of their health, including information on malpractice and sanctions that might have been taken against him/her."
According to the vitals site his credentials are:
University of North Carolina School of Medicine at Chapel Hill
Albert Einstein Medical Center
Psychiatry, Completed: 1989
The American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology certified.
There is already a conflict. This site http://hypnosisforanything.com/dr_mitchell_gibson.htm
says he's "Dr. Mitchell E. Gibson is a board-certified forensic psychiatrist
, writer, artist, software developer, public speaker, and spiritual teacher. Dr. Gibson received his medical degree at the age of 25 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He then completed his residency training at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. During his last year of residency he served as Chief Resident in Psychiatry and received the Albert Einstein Foundation Research Award for his work in Sleep Disorders. Dr. Gibson is a former Chief of Staff at the East Valley Camelback Hospital in Mesa Arizona. "
The bold emphasis is mone. I'll get into the "software developer" later.
They also say this "Dr. Gibson is a former Chief of Staff at the East Valley Camelback Hospital in Mesa Arizona."
Here is a quick stats on that facilityhttp://www.hospital-data.com/hospitals/ ... LL239.html
Now, to lie #1.
The The American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology certifies for 10 years. They give you the ability to search for certification holders. Mitchell E. Gibson holds no certifcation with this board.
Now, what does "software developer" mean? It means programming. And, knowing what I'm talking about, it's not an easy skill and takes a great deal of education training and experience to create software. Of course, there are hacks, but that's like me playign football with my friends and then saying "I'm a professional athelete"... it's hogwash.
Let's breakdown the other claims, I want to add they are very L Ron Hubbard esque...
+board-certified forensic psychiatrist
already found out wrong
all of here are writers, as we write. Anyone can "be a writer" it's no big deal.
his books are all self published
again, this is something anyone can call themselves... it's a hogwash title
I doubt this based on my experience
hell, I'm a public speaker... I've given lectures to rooms of hundreds of people. I don't "count that" in "how cool am I" things.
hell, I'm a spiritual teacher -- all of us HERE on this forum are... is this really a resume builder?
Hello mister BigTim, I see on your resume that you saved your last company millions of dollars and, oh my, wow, you're also an artist and a spiritual teacher... that's impressive...
