Are all good readings JUST good guesses? Are mediums who purport to talk to the dead just making the whole thing up….or even preying on vulnerable people who want (and need) to believe? In this article we are going to take a quick and insightful look at the truth behind psychic readings, and the myths, misinformation and outright lies many skeptics tell to make you think they are all a fake! Curious to know more? Great….continue reading as we take a closer look below!
Fact #1: Psychic Abilities Have Been Proven By Science (Repeatedly)
Yes, I know this is a controversial statement…..but it’s actually very true! So true….as a matter of fact, that in the summer of 2009, famous professional skeptic Richard Wiseman admitted that the proof for some psychic abilities (like remote viewing, a form of clairvoyance) was PROVEN by any reasonable standard of scientific testing… but that he still didn’t believe it anyway.
Books like “Mental Radio”, written by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Upton Sinclair 50 years ago (and endorsed by none other than Albert Einstein who wrote the FORWARD!) offered concrete PROOF that genuine psychic readings were unexplainable by any common scientific method, and that trying to pretend they didn’t exist was silly. (Sinclair married a professional clairvoyant…and she was the basis for his book)
Fact #2: Telephone Psychic Readings are Often Better Than Those Done in Person
Another fact that many skeptics scoff off. Telephone readings, in lab and scientific tests for accuracy of the information that “comes through”, are often MUCH more credible than those done face to face. Why? Because when you are sitting with someone, they can read your body language. They can judge your appearance. Your clothes. Your mannerisms. Cold reading, or making judgments based on statistical averages… is MUCH more apt to take place. This makes even GREAT readings… easy to explain away! The truth is, readings done by telephone often negate a whole bunch of reader “bias”, and make the really GREAT readings all the more impressive, fun and IMPOSSIBLE to explain away. (even if you are a skeptic who refuses to believe the obvious… psychic abilities are REAL, and only gaining more mainstream acceptance!)
