What debt of gratitude do we owe the psychics who predicted the Haitian earthquake so people could evacuate?
Snicker, that “vine” person is just like all the other psychics… she says she predicted an earthquake on that day (she didn’t say where it would be and there are earthquakes almost every day somewhere) but she only lets us know AFTER the fact. Hell, I can do that.

They’re too busy predicting the winning lottery numbers, as they do every week.
I wonder if Nostradamus predicted the earthquake. I guess by tomorrow, he will have done.

You can thank me. But next time may be you will listen to my predictions.

I’ve got some Oreo cookies. If they want some they can have them. They’re a couple years old but hey who can turn down an Oreo!

Average Person versus Psychic in Parapsychology Research?
Years ago (1930’s) parapsychology retreated into the laboratories to have controlled conditions because of wide spread fraud (starting with investigations in 1882 and before).
So, normal people (not seeking fame and fortune) started to be studied rather than public psychics, mediums, etc.
However, now controls are better and their have been traits found among people that seem to score higher on psi tests.
So, is parapsychology now focused on
(and should they be?) those groups of people or does it still focus on the general population?

Parapsychology is aimed partly at the general public and partly at thos deemed as ‘gifted’ and partly at those deemed ‘average’. This is so that the results have a slightly more accurate reading of ‘abilities’.
According to most research, the so-called psychics have performed on a par with the ‘averages’.
There has been no conclusive proof that extra sensory prception truly exists – yet.
There have however been unexplained cases of people getting high scores in Zener card tests.
No proof as such, just ‘unexplained’ so make up your own mind as to the reality or fantasy of ESP.
