…it is not an exaggeration to state that ESP is where statistical methods go to die.
This review is scathing. And true.
“…it is not an exaggeration to state that ESP is where statistical methods go to die. Of course, Bem and colleagues will disagree with my interpretation of their work.
If the ESP proponents truly believe that the effect is real, preregistration and adversarial collaborations are the only way forward.”
Important notice from Bob Blaskiewicz:
On Thursday, June 26, I will be giving a presentation about Burzynski to the Skeptical Society of St. Louis. I would like very much to have a representative of Sen. McCaskill attend, as she did such an able job dismantling Dr. Oz last week. It’s clear that this nightmare will not end until the FDA’s bizarre relationship with the clinic is investigated by legislators. Please contact her St. Louis office and ask them to go out of their way to send a representative to the talk, which will be at 7PM at Pat’s on Oakland (in Dogtown, if anyone asks). Things are coming to a head and we need skeptics to ACT now more than ever to stop a medical ethics scandal that involves 8 times as many subjects as the Tuskegee Experiment. Thanks!
