Discussions about Psychics and Psychic Phenomena, Extra Sensory Perception, Telepathy, Psi, Clairvoyancy, 6th Sense, Psychokinesis, etc.
good points, truth junkie. I am open-minded as always about the potential successes or failures of 'psychic detectives' as a form of reading, based on having observed various psychic phemonena beyond the shadow of a doubt, which I have gone into in some detail in previous posts. For me, the exercise that remains is to work out if there is ANY psychic out there who claims to be a psychic detective who can actually bring back detailed information either by reading the minds of the living or communicating with a recently deceased person. I am still not sure whether someone can bring back as much detail as some of the self-proclaimed psychics suggest, based on my own experiences with psychics who definitely can hook into external information, but only in a hazy way -- or can communicate with deceased people by literally being in the same room as them at the time. On top of this, it's possible to make a living in the US out of being a 'professional psychic' whether you have any ability or not, which clouds the issue further when it comes to a motivation for self-promotion etc.
However, as you point out, the 'investigators/writers/sceptics' who investigate pretty much come in from a total debunking perspective at the outset, which is neither open-minded nor particularly useful in attempting to determine if anyone out there has any abilities, no matter how weak or strong. They tend to gloss over all the cases if they can find a single dubious one, which is clearly not a scientific approach, but allows them to sink back into their comfortable place of material denialism again.
I'm also interested in your UFO experiences in detail, altho medicos would no doubt write them off as 'wakeful dreaming fugues' or something.
