In the comments section, someone recently alerted us to a most remarkable article. I had a look at it and thought it would be a pity to let it pass without further comment. Here is the abstract:

There are many types of energy around us, including natural and artificial ones, the first of the ground energies due to the imbalance happened from the treatment of man with the ground (mines-the bases of huge buildings); the result of the Earth rotation, the result of geological faults, the flow of groundwater or energies resulting from other factors that result in radiations that harm organisms in general. Also we are continuously increasing the amount of carrier waves needed for the wireless technology of modern communication in the earth’s atmosphere every day. These electromagnetic waves are thousands of times stronger than the level used in the communication in our body cells. The problem is not the saturation of the earth’s atmosphere through quantity, but also a detrimental quality. Even people who avoid using high technology are not immune. No one is immune because these are carrier waves with penetrating properties. our immune systems are continuously trying to correct the distortion in the transfer of inner information in our body; very soon the threshold will be reached when a total collapse of our body defenses will take place. Balancing the activities of daily life, achieving harmony with our inner and outer environments, humanizing modern technology, integrating science and spirits, and discovering the unified scientific reality behind all religions is the work of some science such as Bio Geometry, Bio Design, Radiesthesia, …ext.

When one runs a blog on so-called alternative medicine (SCAM), it is almost inevitable to run into plenty of bullshit. Thus, over the years, I have gotten used to even the most compact versions of it. Yet, this paper – I do recommend you have a glance also at the full text – is truly outstanding.

In case there is someone amongst my readers who understands what the author wants to express, I would be most obliged to learn.

  • These electromagnetic waves are thousands of times stronger than the level used in the communication in our body cells.

    Gheez, and there was me, thinking that our body cells communicated almost exclusively by means of chemical signals (and yes, that includes nerve cells) … and now this person explains that we basically have billions and billions of radio transmitters and receivers in our cells to keep our body functioning! Now who’da thunk it!

  • I soon gave up reading this incoherent and incomprehensible gibberish. I strongly suspect it was written by some AI device such as ChatGPT just to mock the journal and/or the awe-seeking part of the readership.
    Or we may weep together.

    • I thought the same but it appears to be written by a human. Regardless, on a BS scale of Zero…..Dullman……Deepak Chopra, I think this paper is fast approaching Chopra leaving Dullman in the dust.

  • Could this be but a prank, the posting of output from a gibberish generator?

    • Dear Olle, dear Ray,

      In 2020, Khaloub preached: “The effect of nature on design rules and its role in aesthetic preference”

      Khaloub can preach in a mosque or church, but is this science? – Her first source is the Koran.
      Anyone who reads the “article” will notice that she is a Muslim creationist, so to speak.

      🙏 The Summary of the Prayer 🙏
      “God is the creator of the universe, and man did not create anything. His knowledge is nothing more than a collection of elements , materials and organizing these elements according to a pattern or approach that he saw expressing his tendencies and feelings.”
      “Nature is the spiritual source of the rules, and nature may be represented in the
      human body, its habits and instincts, for man himself is a natural phenomenon of
      the phenomena of this universe that God created, nature also is represented in
      the behavior of bees , ants or at the earth’s rotation around the sun or in the
      shape of coral reefs and snails at the bottom of the sea.”🙏

      Why not?

      But is this scientific article to be published on ResearchGate with the guiding principle:

      🤷‍♀️ Discover scientific knowledge and stay connected to the world of science 🤷‍♀️

      Will ResearchGate answer questions about why bullshit articles are accepted multiple times by the same people?
      Anyone who reads the Wikipedia article on ResearchGate must doubt whether the company is open to criticism.

  • Dear Edzard,
    are you wondering about the bullshit?

    The problems are:
    *the ignorance of Google-Scholar , Researchgate and others,
    *Predatory journals

    Kholoud Alabd published her bullshit study in the Journal of Design Sciences and Applied Arts. On its website, this Predatory journal publishes:
    *A Word template to create articles Paper Template – Eg (1).docx
    *Video tutorials on how to upload articles: author guide video / How to write scientific paper: Structure & Referencing

    „What is a good title? – The title will be read by many people. Only a few read the entire paper“

    The same principle is also applied to SCAM articles, for example from the field of homeopathy. During further research on homeopathy in the “El País” I came across an interesting article via Google Scholar, the strange cure of arsenic poisoning with homeopathy led me to a “recent review” on paramedical cold remedies:

    “Current status of homeopathic treatment of acute respiratory diseases” ( Two advanced students of pharmacy state:
    „For a homeopath, the selection of drugs based on the principle of similarity and their use in low dilutions is justified when the patient first calls for help.“
    „the development of new effective homeopathic drugs for the treatment and prevention of influenza and ARVI is an urgent task of modern pharmacy“
    Yarnykh Tatyana (, the third-party author, mainly supervised doctoral theses on plant-based topics. Ms. Sahaidak-Nikitiuk (, the fourth author, is a professor of pharmacy in Kharkiv, Ukraine, the article does not appear in her list of publications.

    👉 There can be no question of a current status, at most it could be an advertisement of one of the major manufacturers of homeopathic beads.


    But the article appeared in the predatory journal “Proceedings of the 2nd International Scientific and Practical Conference «Modern Directions and Movements in Science»”
    The open access journal “Scientific Collection “InterConf” ( regularly organizes „conferences“.

    Dear colleagues are cordially invited participate and can download an information paper (

    It’s worth reading. Why didn’t I pursue a “scientific career” as a SCAMY?
    The formal „Requirements for scientific papers“ are simple, „Times Roman, 14“, minimal 2 to 10 pages and so on …


  • Was this written by a Chiropractor?

  • I’d like to nominate it for a special award: Most Innovative Colouring-In of Vitruvian Man.

  • To answer the question posed by the Professor:
    No. “There’s more…” (as a UK comedian’s catch phrase once had it).

    “Under the patronage of his excellency, the minister of higher education, the president of Helwan University, and the vice president for graduate studies and research, the dean of the faculty of applied arts is honored to launch JDSAA; the journal of Design Sciences and Applied Arts.

    JDSAA is a peer-reviewed journal that is published biannually (January and June) in English and Arabic. The journal aims to improve the quality of applied scientific researches in the different design fields in an attempt to apply international publishing standards of peer-reviewing in original scientific articles and paper reviews. The journal is committed to the highest standards of reviewing, by independent, anonymous expert referees in different design fields from all over the world guided by international publishing ethics.

    The journal’s scope includes many specialized scientific fields that cover all disciplines of applied arts and design sciences. JDSAA is interested in analytical, innovative, creative, and philosophical studies to present innovative contributions, which can be applied in different design products that meet international production standards and values with an innovative artistic vision. We believe that these outstanding contributions that reflect the human identity will be steps forward for decreasing the international and global problems.

    JDSAA receives article submissions from established researchers, design scholars, practitioners, educators, and design managers worldwide. JDSAA also encourages new starting career researchers who contribute to design knowledge through original re-interpretations and analyses of existing works.”

    I can’t wait.
