Re: Existence of spirits! do not know ..

‘This case appears to be one of the most remarkable cases supporting evidence for survival of an intelligent component of human existence after bodily death,’ opines Dr. Vernon M. Neppe, director of the Pacific Neuropsychiatric Institute in Seattle, Washington, and professor in the department of neurology and psychiatry at St. Louis University in Missouri […]
The good doctor, with another woo-woo, has written a book (has even a chapter on "Psi and entanglement", cute) making an incredible breakthrough in physics by introducing the Gimmel, a particle for mass/energy/consciousness (at least from a cursory reading of some blather):

They should start by getting a decent grip on typography.

Flacus, I recommend our awesome "Power of the Mind" thread.

SCOLE. Stands for Serious Coprolites Or Lengthy Excreta.

Here is the one thing that should give you pause, you idiot.

When the "experimenters" told the mediums that they wanted to use night vision for filming (the crap was supposed to be done in the dark) they were told that they could not because the entities would be harmed by infared. That is a long way to say "Fake'.

End of story. I won't say "nice try" because every school boy knows that Scole is fraudulent.

Perhaps the problem lies in the word "believe".

I love rural Georgia. All those calls are routed to my call center outside of Orlando where I have dialect trained Indians ("Dot" indians, not "How" indians) ready to answer questions and take donations.

This is Sakreet.

She brought in $375,765 last year. She has a third grad education but sounds like Dolly Pardon. Paid her$150,000. She also does training. Brought in her extended family, all 103 of them. Young children are remarkably effective fund raisers. Sakreet came up with the idea of introducing a slight lisp in their speech. WOW!!. Revenues up 22%!!!

Thank God (me!) for people like Flatus. It is because of them that I get to live the American Dream. Sakreet and her fellow workers too!

The short answer is: There is no good evidence.
All your evidences to date are anecdotal bullshit and do not hold up under scrutiny. As indeed are all the 'evidences' available on the www. Which is why yours suck as this is where your are getting them.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

Re: Existence of spirits! do not know ..

I recind my claim that it was ed, and here's why.

Identical posts appear on the Skeptics Society Forum by a new member, Kundalino, starting about 5 days after Flatulence joined here.
https://www.skepticforum.com/search.php ... 4&sr=posts

Therefore, it's probably someone that posts at least sometimes both here and there. I can think of only four people: Me, Abdul, Pyrrho, and ... drumbeat please ... Robinson.

And amongst those four, who is the biggest troll?
It's Robinson. 99.978% positive.

You've missed the entire point. NOT personal evidence. That's part of the definition of 'anecdotal' you see: Unscientific. Evidence as revealed by double blind properly controlled experiments. Lots of them. That's the ticket.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

I've sorta given up doing this but let me try one more time.

Do you have any money? Like in a retirement account?

Suppose you do and I say "Flatus, old man, I have an opportunity for you. I will double your money if you invest with me. All you have to do is give it to me and believe".

Now, unless you are deranged, you will say "thats great, can you demonstrate that you can do it?"

Are you with me so far? You see what is happening? I am making a promise and you are asking (rightly) for proof of what I am claiming. Do you see that?

Now. You are a savvy investor. You have not just fallen off of a turnip truck. I am making a claim that, though possible, is pretty much something that you have not experienced. I am asking for your loot. You want to believe.

eta: This is an outcome that is highly desirable. Not the 6% return that wage slaves like Bruce dream about but 100% return. It is like <hint> everlasting life. Because it is so desirable, you recognize in yourself a bias TO believe. You do see that, you foreign beggar you? Because it is so desirable, and knowing that you want to believe, you are going to be strict with what you will accept as proof.

What proof is adequate for you to turn over your hard earned cash? Be real specific. What do I have to do, say, show that will convince you that I can deliver?

Take your time. Do not arm wave. Just answer the fuggin question.
