"In a review of Almeder's earlier 'Beyond Death' in the Journal of 
Psychical Research , April 1989, the reviewer, Michael Coleman, after 
listing Almeder's numerous quite outrageous distortions,
remarks: 'Such practices would be reprehensible in a Layman and are 
inexcusable in a professional philosopher.' "

Of course, the reader has no idea from the above exactly what Coleman 
is writing about so there is no way to judge the reasonableness of 
Coleman's assertions.

But if any reader wants to follow up on what Muehlegger is referring 
to, then they should ALSO read:

"Almeder Versus Coleman on Survival" by Robert Almeder in the Journal 
of the Society for Psychical Research (London) July l994.

their right value; and unless a judge compares notes and
hears both sides he can hardly come to a correct decision."
