The Problem With Anecdotes



His generalizations about skeptics go a little further then reality would support. Was almost tempted to say the same thing about scientist. Skepticism and science are flawed human processes. It isn't unbiased on the individual bases, its though repetition and verification that the biases and mistakes are reduced and eventually removed.

Oh, so that's why the police sometimes work with psychics successfully -- because they're all frauds? It's tough for some of us who have had undeniably psychic experiences, because skeptics with no such experience immediately call us frauds or crazy people. It apparently makes you feel better and you seem to go far out of your way to disprove the possibility of anything beyond your five senses. However, Hamlet was right (there are more things in heaven and earth).
