Nothing seems to fascinate us more than going to see a psychic. We sit attentively, whilst someone predicts what’s going to happen in the future and in some cases, pass on messages from loved ones who have passed. But are psychics & clairvoyants etc genuine? Or incredibly skilled at reading our emotions and body language, in order to tell us what we want to hear?
in 1964 a 1 Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge was offered by the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) It agreed to pay out one million U.S. dollars to anyone who could demonstrate a supernatural or paranormal ability under agreed-upon scientific testing criteria. Over a thousand people applied to take it, but none were successful. The challenge was terminated in 2015. James Randi, founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation developed the challenge, during a radio panel discussion when a parapsychologist challenged him to “put his money where his mouth is”
Despite nobody having passed the challenge, we still have people claiming to be psychic, clairvoyant or spiritual healers dotted around every corner of our society so what are your views?
Are there actually people who can contact the dead? See into the future? Or predict events before they happen? Or is it all mind games?
