On I don't know, maybe because over the last century those 2 periodicals
have reported more new knowledge about the universe that we happen to live
in than anything else you could name. Absolutely anything!

And the reason you don't find articles about spiritualism, sorry I suppose I
should use the more trendy name Psi (sigh), is that the editors of those
periodicals (the smartest editors on planet Earth by the way) can't find
anybody who said anything interesting about it.

Extra virgin, government inspected, premium grade, 100% BULLSHIT! The only
stringent policy they have is *against* crappy papers. If there were any
truth to this sewage it would have been proven beyond doubt to everybody's
satisfaction centuries ago; this is after all not rocket science and you
don't need a 10 billion dollar accelerator to discover it. A High School kid
could prove the validity of Psi in his science fair project, or he could if
the fucking thing existed. But of course it doesn't.
