Are they ever right? They might claim to be right but color me skeptical. This article from Paranormal Review gets it right.
Why did we have no warning about 9/11, the Asian tsunami? Why are they so wrong about if a missing person is even dead or alive? I despise what these people do. I don’t know if they are frauds or honestly believe they have a gift, but that doesn’t matter. Despite the hyped claim that psychic power has been proven (such as noted in this story), I remain unconvinced. I would not trust any self-proclaimed psychic. They are mostly, spectacularly wrong. There is no question that psychic power, if it exists, is notoriously unrealiable. Yet, these “entertainers” do their act for audiences on schedule.
Stories about psychic predictions, remote viewing experiments, etc. will go nowhere fast until some reasonable explanation is put forth about how they could possibly occur. A collection of tales is just that. You must be able to understand and explain them before they have any value.
There has been much talk about James Randi’s newly revamped million-dollar challenge. JR may be gruff about dealing with a gullible public but I have no doubt that much time is wasted on sorely disillusioned or downright egotistical claimants. I agree with his changes. What is wrong with using the tools that popular paranormalists use – media hype and promotion – along with a challenge?
As always, I am open to learn more about the mysteries of life (and death) still out there. Perhaps someday we will see a theory established for psi. But, to get to the bottom of the matter, you need to duke it out with opposing views. I hope Ms. Browne and Mr. Van Praagh step into the ring. They don’t deserve to profit from grief. More people ought to call them on it.
UPDATE: I’m not the only one who feels this way and I’m awful glad to see this. Another “rub their nose in it article“.
