"Above chance" results?

Postby RichardT » 27 Aug 2012, 16:17

Have there ever been any claimants of psychic abilities that have demonstrated a considerable "above chance" result in their demonstration? If so, please send me the proper information as I would like to investigate it.

Have you researched the Ganzfield experiments?

I have now. But does that have anything to do with Randi's tests? I would like to see specific cases involving Randi if you know of any.

Randi is not a parapsychologist. No one has passed his MDC if that's what you are asking.

Sorry, I didn't know you were asking about Randi. Randi doesn't conduct tests as far as I know. He approves, but doesn't do much conducting. There are some protocols on the randi.org forum under million dollar challenge, but that's about all I'll go into on that. It's one of those issues that for some reason seems to invoke a whole hell of a lot of emotions for something that to me, is not a big deal.
