You did notice that this paper was co-authored by Prof. Dick Bierman, 
who did substantial experimental work in presponses, showing 
significant effects, both before and after this critique? As Dean 
Radin comments:

"Of course Dick and I were aware of this purported bias from the very
beginning of this line of research, over a decade ago. And of course
we've checked it thoroughly. It is based on what amounts to a
physiological gambler's fallacy. Dick and I, and Ed May and Rollin
McCraty and others who've actually collected data have checked to see
whether the proposed anticipatory biases actually appear in the data.
The answer is no. We've all published our findings."
