Interesting. I don't find it particularly persuasive either way, though.

It's also interesting that a big 'so what' is offered regarding the lack of Lazar's academic credentials.

The man was allegedly working as a physicist at Los Alamos before he went to S4. If we accept that he never stepped foot inside the universities he originally claimed to (as it says in the video, he wouldn't be the first man to lie about his credentials to bag a job), my biggest issue is how he got his foot in the door there without a verifiable academic record. Because this is Los Alamos National Laboratory we're talking about here. Not Walmart. They would do a thorough background check on any potential employee. Part of which would obviously entail chasing up any claimed academic qualifications. That's a bit of a stumbling block. Lazar may indeed be an excellent self-taught scientist. But people without degrees, are going to be frozen out of institutions like Los Alamos 99.9% of the time. I have a huge interest in middle eastern politics and history. I know a great deal about it. But if I apply for a lecturing position at SOAS on that basis, my application isn't going to get very far. I don't have the necessary degrees in that particular field. That's the way the system works, for the most part.

Sooooooo...

Let's for argument's sake, say Lazar did end up working as a physicist at Los Alamos. How did he get in there? Are we to assume he started off as a janitor, and Matt Damon-style, left complex equations on chalkboards all over the labs, was rumbled, and given a job as a physicist instead? Was he recommended by a friend that worked there? Was work he was doing in his own time noticed by someone already in the lab, who passed his details onto Los Alamos? I could go on. It's not unknown for people with talent to bag themselves positions in serious scientific institutions on the basis of that talent alone. Extremely rare, but not unknown. So is Lazar one of these lucky individuals?

Or...is he a fraud?


Best,
