Profwag, do you want to continue trying to catalogue these psychic detectives? There's no rush, just that it is somewhat germane to the OP, and I'm interested to see how many in Zammit's list are demonstrably dodgy. It's important to be even-handed in this, i.e. assume going in that ESP is an open question, then decide which people on the list probably never show any real ability and have rummied up their life stories and success rates, etc, and whether any of the listed people have genuine accolades from officers at all. We cannot go in assuming all testimonials from officers are fake or by actors etc, until we have evidence for that, however, as that is not genuinely scientific, is it. Unfortunately we can mostly gain data by googling some standard search terms for each person and see what comes up, looking for previous debunking exercises. It is possible to call people in the states directly also, for corroboration, if necessary. It is mostly tedious admin work to be honest -- create a table of the people listed, indicate which seem to be easily debunked at the outset such as Noreen Renier, then start applying some agreed upon google search parameters for the remainder, such as '<Person's full name> debunk hoax fraud' or similar. Other standard terms might also be useful in the other direction to gain any positive information that might be corroborated. The self-promoters, i.e. anyone with a website, seem suspicious from the start.

I am interested Sydney, but I'm going out of town this weekend and don't know how much time I'll have over the next few days. Could we delay a bit and pick up again, maybe in a new thread in a few days?

So is that what you kids are calling it today? :shock: Oh, you mean the medium performance, don't you? :roll: Never mind. :oops:

I really can't wait to hear all about it. I will be fact checking against your "My Life" PM that you sent me months ago in preparation for tonight.

I laugh. I've channeled. In fact the last program I took was 5 years long and called the trancemedium program. It takes place in your head. Sit with that one for a minute or two. No one on a stage professing to be a medium has gone through that level of training. Of course you don't have to be aware of channeling to channel.

So we're taking the hour-long drive to the city last night and half-way there I get a phone call from Ticketmaster and the Bastard cancelled the show! According to his website, his flight was cancelled so the show will have to be rescheduled. Talk about a bummer! I mean, if he's so psychic, why didn't he see that coming and drive up instead?

I actually agree with this statement.
