Nostradamus,
This study is a replication, but the other studies were from years ago and are not even referenced on line. I only found out about them by reading a book about something else. The Trickster and the Paranormal by George Hansen. I can't provide you with any links. My internet is dodgy right now, making my searching frustrating.

Do you want to understand psi, or are you just looking for ways to say it doesn't exist? Your statements are so completely one sided towards disbelief on every area surrounding this subject that I'm having a hard time taking you seriously.

NinjaPuppy,
I was directing my comment to Nostradamus. I agree about Arouet and ProfWag. They're pretty good as far as skeptics go and I've mentioned that several times. They will freely admit when they don't know something.

Nostradamus? Not so much. I'm seeing too much of that I-have-to-be-right-at-all-costs mentality.

Arouet,
It would be a fallacy if we were talking about a belief like "the world is flat." Or creationism. But we're not. We're talking about something shared by EVERY culture on earth throughout history. There are records from almost 4,000 years ago where people complained about how hard it was to find good psychics. (The more things change . . .) And waddaya know, everyone seems to agree on how you do it.
1. You need a minimum of distractions
2. Intent without focus
3. Acceptance and belief

Psychic ability is the same everywhere and it doesn't change. Can you think of anything else that fits that description? What possible explanation could there be besides "it's real."
