A victory for common sense
Normally I’m not a big fan of over legislating the world we live in, its nice to have laws that stop us reverting to anarchy but often it goes too far… that said, I was really pleased to read an article on BBC news about legislation aimed at fraudulent mediums, spiritualists and other “psychics”.
Hooray for common sense!
These people are ALL fraudsters, in varying degrees.
Lock ’em all up I say! yes, there’s anecdotal evidence… but test it and every time it fails, if there was a real psychic why has the james Randi one million dollar prize never been claimed?
For nearly 10 years, James Randi has tested “psychics” and not one has even reached the second phase of proof.
Another reason why Derren Brown is my hero, his show messiah (clip below) shows him proving himself as a medium, whilst at the same time stating its made up. Genius.
