ESP... real or pseudoscience?
Extra Sensory Perception. This is what I always wanted to know. Is it real or just another delusion? I'd really appreciate if I can get some good explanation here

Why would you believe it's real?

RE: ESP... real or pseudoscience?
Largely another delusion as far as I can tell. There's a long list of woo that gets lumped together as "ESP". Most of it's nonsense, though there might be a few explicable cases of senses or knacks that we don't often notice or use much. That's just plain perception though.

Here's a quick test for your psychic friends:
- Tell them you're thinking of a number between 1 and 10.
- Concentrate really hard on the sqare root of 19 (4.3588989435406735522369819838596).

Until I hear the news from Scientific American, I'll go with pseudoscience.

No, it's real. Seriously. It's 100% real.

All the other stuff is silly nonsense, but this is real.

Total bullshit! Anyone claiming it is real is lying or deluded. Anyone who does that in front of you or you see it on video, they are pulling a trick on you. Honest people like Penn and Teller don't lie to you and tell you what they do on stage is a mere illusion, a trick.

ESP is no more a real thing than when you see a "magician" saw the lady in half.

It all amounts to if you want to believe bullshit is real badly enough, you will.

If you want to know what is a scientific fact, you listen to scientists, not quacks. You go with universally accredited teachers and accredited peer review scientific journals. Bullshit crap on cable TV or on social media that is third party and not universally accepted is garbage.

Just like claims of big foot, Loc Ness, Crop Circles, AREA 51, JFK and 9/11 conspiracies and psychics. ALL FUCKING BULLSHIT.

The easy way to know it is bullshit, is to challenge the idiots promoting it into a neutral lab they have no control over.

If ESP were real, there would be no need for all the "psychic hot lines". A real psychic would know when you planned to consult them, and call you first.

If ESP were real psychics would all be billionaires in the stock market or put every casino out of business in Las Vegas.

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
