When I was a younger man, I believed in psychics and mediums and stuff, even got quite depressed when I was told of a reading wherein, in 1984, Ted Kennedy would be elected President, and shortly after there would be world-wide famine and death, whcih would in turn be blamed on him.
After many years, I saw the writing on the wall: psychics never saeem to predict anything correctly until after the event transpired, at which time they ‘foretold of it’.
I would sure be impressed if someone dug out a Nostradamus prediction and said, ‘This is about to come true’ and then it does, in fact, manifest. But it always seems to be the other way around, you know?
Of course, I will be the first to agree witht he concept that Science is still learning (as it always will, that is its nature), and perhaps someday, connections with the dead ( like Jerry Garcia ? ) will be established, or we learn to use our minds to communiate directly with one another, or whatever.
But, much as it would be fun to believe, I am in the court of The Amazing Randy and all other debunkers: there just is no credible evidence that any of these things are legitimate.
