It’s not a stretch to predict that psychics failed in 2012 predictions

It’s that time of year, when we get to look back at celebrity psychic predictions and see how they utterly failed. They are so awful with hit rates, I don’t quite understand why anyone thinks they are worth a story anymore. Oh, wait. They just emphasize the chance hits or near hits making them into correct predictions. Psychics are unanimously TERRIBLE at these big predictions.

PSYCHIC FAIL: The 2012 predictions that just never happened | News.com.au.

A News.com.au review of psychic predictions for 2012 has revealed that there is a lot of work to do in a short amount of time if their prophecies are to be fulfilled.

The Psychics Directory prints their “top predictions” from members of the Australian Psychics Association at the beginning of each year.

At the beginning of this year they predicted terrorist attacks, fires, earthquakes, floods, volcano eruptions and water skiing accidents. All of which occurred – spooky, huh?

Unfortunately it’s the specific predictions the nation’s top crystal ball gazers fell down on.

Psychics often predict unreasonable natural events that just don’t make sense in terms of what we know about the earth.

There are some areas psychics will be glad they failed miserably. Elisabeth Jensen, a multi-award winning psychic medium and the 2010 Australian Psychic of the Year predicted:

“Adelaide will be affected by an earthquake in March or April 2012 but damage will not be extensive and with only a very small loss of human life. A number of animals will be affected”.

Ms Jensen also foresaw that people would be concerned about December 21, the Mayan Apocalypse, and thought there would be some energy shifts and technical difficulties caused but that “we will mainly all still be here living in Earth”. Let us hope she meant ‘on’.

Whenever they are specific about deaths, births, places and events, they fail. Generalized predictions about nasty natural events are not difficult since they happen every year in generally the same places (earthquakes and volcanoes are rather site specific) but psychics NEVER help in predicting things that might actually save lives and allow us to act. Why? Because this type of clairvoyance doesn’t exist. IF psi exists (a big if), it is so weak and unreliable that it is practically useless. After all these decades of trying to get good data to show it exists, there isn’t any convincing body of evidence. After all these psychics spouting their predictions, not one has actually been helpful.

    But Nikki Psychic to the Stars predicted the Japanese tsunami last year!

    Of course, she also predicted a tsunami would hit Japan in 2010. And 2009. And 2008. Oh, and 2012. She’s also predicted tsunamis would hit Malibu, Hawaii, Sumatra, and Indonesia in her last 4 annual predictions.

    I predict there will be no eruptions of volcanoes in The Netherlands in 2013.

    Pretty tricky considering how many conical mountains are all over The Netherlands, but I predict Bigfoot will not be dound there, though someone will probably discover one of its footprints.
