Studies on psyhics

Post by Zixinus » 2008-04-02 09:31am

I would like to show serious and heavy evidence to any future psychic I may come across. Academic studies specifically. Now, I know they will No True Scotsman till the cow comes home, but I want to show something to the fence sitters and people that still have some degree of sanity and reason left.

I would look for it myself, but I am not familiar such literature and I am hoping that some people here might be.

Is it such a good idea to try to prevent evidence against them? The burden of proof is clearly not with you, and it might be better to remind people of this.

Maybe, maybe not. However, if I ever have to justify my position, I want ammunition like this. The response to this will be No True Scotsman, which I can point out.

Really, does no one know any such studies?

Not off hand, but the JREF archives probably list any studies that have been done, and they probably talk such things up on the JREF forums, so I'd try there.
