Examples

  • It was enough of an academic challenge to be open to the possibility of life after death and test the survival-of-consciousness hypothesis in the laboratory; I reasoned that were I to add spirit guides to the list of spiritual possibilities and begin a research program around this hypothesis, I would probably lose all scientific credibility, even in the eyes of parapsychologists!

    The Sacred Promise

  • Lovitch took the pajamas to an international team of parapsychologists and paranormal investigators.

  • It seems rather odd to seize upon them as an ‘answer’ to the issues involving psi (in one lecture, Wiseman says that there was an odd sort of ‘concordance’ amongst parapsychologists, because although there were apparently discrepancies amongst definitions held in the field, the vagueness kept them in a kind of ‘limbo’ of agreement … I should get the exact quote and post it …).

    On Quantum Theory And Parapsychology

  • If you say psionics is indistinguishable from magic, you miss the point: magic is supernatural whereas psionics is based on a yet-undiscovered set of laws of nature that can be investigated, not by priests, but by parapsychologists at Duke University.

  • Sensing a juicy headline that he can first build up and then debunk, tabloid journalist John Fox Jason Connery, son of Sean brings in a team of academic parapsychologists and a somewhat dubious psychic to make a ripping yarn out of this urban ghost story.

    Problems upstairs

  • If parapsychologists followed the methodology of scientific inquiry, they would look what we know about the laws of physics, realize that their purported subject of study had already been ruled out, and within thirty seconds would declare themselves finished.

    Telekinesis and Quantum Field Theory

  • Since you argue that parapsychologists are pseodoscientists, may I ask why you believe these results of theirs so firmly that you base the remainder of your arguments on them?
