Dean Radin On The Stupidity Hypothesis

I've talked psionics and related stuff with my girlfriend on numerous occasions. These always end the same way.

She insists it's all real and needs exposed as such. That it should just be accepted.

I insist that it needs researched in a methodical way and proven one way or the other. I have personal experiences that could be termed clairvoyant or psionic in nature, but they aren't experimentally repeatable. Most of them happen when I'm dreaming, and so could be artifacts of an overactive imagination. Perhaps it's "spooky action at a distance" or something quantum mechanical.

Radin seems to think it's about to become mainstream. If that's the case, then what of your previous post?

so if I believe in to something, or some psychic or religious stuff, it is not stupidity! Thanks! There must be 72 virgins waiting for all the true believers!

When does a belief become brainwashing? The psychics must describe how to test their stuff, independently. The burden is on the psychics.

By the way, only the science will allow such stupidity, especially in a Prof who has invested 20 years like many...

Instead of just mindlessly blabbering on about ESP, why doesn't Dean Radin demonstrate it?
