The blind Psychics

Updated on October 23, 2011

Where were you on September 10th?

So the other day at work we got talking about psychics. Where I live there is a relatively famous psychic named Phil Jordan, no relation to Mike. A relative of someone I work with received a reading from him and got a video tape of the session as part of her package. She showed this to the co-worker happy that Phil was able to see things a stranger wouldn't know about her. The co-worker told me that Phil was only able to "know" something after her sister told him the information. This folks is the game. Keep throwing out information until the subject says "YES!" then you have it and keep talking. Make the subject forget that you had to throw out 20 names before you "knew" her dead grandmother's name was Janet.

So it got me thinking, Where was Sylvia Browne and her ilk on September 10th 2001? Really, why wasn't there someone shouting from the rooftops of some grave occurrence that is due the very next day? I did an internet search and I couldn't even find a vague and round about warning from any psychic. Considering the thousands upon thousands of people who claim to be psychic not a one could find the signs for what would occur on 9/11/01.

How about a message from those sponsors Montel?

UUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH...
UUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH...

You'll pay taxes then you'll die

If you haven't figured it out yet, like god, I think psychcis are as real as my deed to the Brooklyn bridge. (the dude offered me a good price, I couldn't resist) I know JREF offers a cool million to anyone who can demonstrate such abilities, but the psychic community already know they are full of it and would never go for such a lose/lose proposition.

But what about those who buy into their abilities. Would any of those people be willing to objectively sit down and watch a video of one of their hero's fail at a reading. Im not talking about an obvious fail, like Sylvia Browne telling a lady her husband's body will never be found because he is in water. Turned out he was a fire fighter during 9/11. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRc4LkBRjIc

But what about when the psychic gives themselves a mental high five after they nailed a reading. Would a believer be willing to sit down and see exactly how it was done. Would they actually hear the psychic guess and throw darts until the subject gives in and tells them information which the psychic jumps on. My guess is no. But it would be interesting to see if people could be open to that or if they hold onto their psychic hero's the way the faithful hold onto their gods.

      I got a chuckle when that psychic told someone they starved in a previous life. Montel stood up and argued with her and said that the woman needed to get treatment..makes good television I guess.
