Lewis-Clark State College offering psychic class; “skeptics” shouldn’t ask questions

Clairvoyant offers paranormal class at LCSC.

Lewis-Clark State College is offering a continuing education class that may have some skeptics wondering what to believe.

Most people in the 21st Century define themselves by their work. Clairvoyant Louise Hauck is no different.

“In this flow of information, it flows beyond time, in the future, in the past, beyond this physical world and we all have access to it,” said Hauck.

Coordinator of non-credit classes at LCSC Alison Oman recognizes this is hardly the everyday run of the mill subject for a class and said this is the second session of Hauck’s class that LCSC is offering to the public because of the enthusiastic response from the first go-around.

Hauck said she thinks, “Long Island Medium” a popular reality TV show that follows a psychic through her everyday life, brings much-needed recognition to the field of the paranormal.

“Well they say a skeptic really isn’t a skeptic or they wouldn’t be asking questions,” said Hauck.

WHAT? A skeptic isn’t a skeptic because they ask questions? Completely wrong!

A SKEPTIC is not a debunker, a skeptic seeks the evidence, of which Hauck and the Long Island Medium have only their personal stories. Psychics won’t submit to tests, their comments are vague, useless and often wrong.

Hauck mentions that Caputo is “obviously authentic” and that “it’s good to desensitize people.” Authentic? She can tell that from a TV show? Authentic just like the “authentic” mediums throughout history that failed to give us reliable evidence of such powers but still do the same stuff than can be duplicated by cold reading techniques that anyone can learn. We’re becoming a society desensitized to a flow of nonsense, I’d say.

Shame on educational institutions that exploit the public’s interest and allow this stuff to be given credibility.

COMMENTING ON SOMEONE ELSE'S SITE IS NOT A RIGHT, IT'S A PRIVILEGE. READ AND UNDERSTAND THE COMMENT POLICY BEFORE SUBMITTING. NONSENSE IS NOT PERMITTED.

    One may get a good education at Lewis-Clark University. It apparently doesn’t happen often, but one may.

    Maybe she should use her amazing powers to win a million bucks and use that to fund scholarships for her class. Chances are the source would get actual accreditation too and Hauck herself would become so recognized she could secure funding to establish her own college.

    What am I thinking? She’ll make some feeble excuses as to why her powers cannot possibly be tested by mere mortals and then run some awful course being a combination of cold reading and wishful thinking.

    “Well they say a skeptic really isn’t a skeptic or they wouldn’t be asking questions,” said Hauck.

    Other than being a blatant attempt to avoid any awkward introduction of facts and reason, what on earth does this actually *mean*?
