Of course it is, I was poking fun at your presumption that publication in a
magazine somehow invalidates the content. I think the source of our seeming
ideological divide, can be found by looking at some of your published works,
*Outside the Gates of Science: Why It's Time for the Paranormal to Come In
>From The Cold *
*The Lotto Effect: Towards a Technology of the Paranormal*
Tthe 'paranormal' endures such inclement clime, because great claims are
made on the basis of evidence with no scientific validity. It just seems
like you've brought a dousing rod to a science fair, and in the context of
any debate this leaves me at a disadvantage. I am bound by scientific
method, you merely by the bounds of your imagination.
