RE: ESP... real or pseudoscience?
All I know that is the women in my family all have a little Zippie Tull in us. She was an ancestress, who was a witch.

So...among us there is often weird stuff that happens.

And...among others not related there is often weird stuff that happens....

But...faeries, now they are real and if you have ever pissed them off, you know it.

I think it is real. My wife has it. She knows everything about me. She knows how I feel and what my intentions were before I did something. Even though I don't agree with her she is right somehow and it must be ESP.

The only thing there that gives me pause is crop circles. You gotta admit... some of those pictures are like "whoa". No matter what the explanation they're pretty damn freaky.

Delusion. They fall apart under proper scrutiny.

James Randi offered a prize of a million dollars to anyone who could demonstrate, under controlled conditions, any sort of "paranormal" ability.

Relatively few even tried, and all miserably failed. You can find videos on YouTube.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

RE: ESP... real or pseudoscience?
As far as I'm concerned, ESP doesn't even qualify as pseudoscience. Telling somebody that taking echinacea will prevent the common cold is genuine [sic ] pseudoscience, but ESP is really nothing more than a magician's stage trick.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

But that's because magic powers only work in the presence of non-skeptics. Wink

Bullshit more likely. Pseudoscience is already taking it too seriously.
