That is, you claim it does not exist except as foolish superstition.

Since you're so sure that's the case, how do you explain Prof. Bem's 
results? He just made it all up and somehow hoodwinked a prestigious 
journal? He made a subtle error that misled him and the referees?

If you have a technical explanation for his anomalous results, let's 
hear it; this would be a genuine contribution to science.
