Ouch, I'm wincing just reading it :-) . . .

Why should Michael Prescott be a critizing Victor Zammit especially knowing all the hardcore skeptics he has to deal with the last thing he need is someone that is suppose to be supporting the afterlife to critize and poke fun at Victor Zammit.

Michael, remind me never to get on your bad side. :)

"Why should Michael Prescott be a critizing Victor Zammit especially knowing all the hardcore skeptics he has to deal with the last thing he need is someone that is suppose to be supporting the afterlife to critize and poke fun at Victor Zammit."

Well, for starters, Michael Prescott isn't a criticizing Victor Zammit. Michael Prescott is criticising Victor Zammit. This is a good thing, not a bad thing. Critical thinking is a useful life skill, I would hope that Zammit would apply some.

Leo,
perhaps Michael feels that Zammit is credulous and unjustifiably cocksure and that Zammit's approach actually harms the prospects of psi phenomena being taken seriously? Or maybe he thinks that Zammit's characterization of Michael as a "skeptic" is wildly off-base, demonstrates a total lack of judgement and casts severe doubt on Zammit's ability to fairly judge any evidence of mediumship or any other "paranormal" phenomenon. That would be my guess, anyway.

I didn't read the rest of the post, but I seriously doubt that 1.5 billion+ watched an American program. That's not even counting the audience in the stadiums for the various games, as well as the followers on the radio.

No, I highly doubt that Medium has surpassed the World Cup.

It's satire, Althusius.

Sorry about that, I hadn't read the rest of the post.

Man, I made a fool out of myself.

I'm waiting for Zammit's response to "naive skeptic Michael Prescott (hereafter referred to as "The Skeptic").

Happens to me every day! :-)

I must admit I waited several days before posting this item. I felt it was childish and mean-spirited. Which it is. On the other hand, I also thought it was funny. Eventually, funny won.

I try to be the bigger person, but sometimes the irrational urge to be an immature, anklebiting jerk wins out.

Now that's "total depravity!"

MIchael—a request. (I don’t know how to contact you by email, so I’m posting it here.) Read “Return from Heaven” by Carol Bowman.

I know that you dislike the idea of reincarnation. But I have a great respect for your capacity—and even enthusiasm—for changing your viewpoint when presented with good reason to do so.

Of all my many. many, books on parapsychology, this is one of my very favorites. It’s a wonderful mix of striking evidence, and moving accounts of people in the midst of life-changing, healing events. It’s intelligently and beautifully written.

I’m re-reading it for the fourth time, and I’d love to hear what you have to say about it!

Bruce,

I just noticed your comment. I'll get hold of a copy of Carol Bowman's book. Sounds interesting.

BTW, if you ever want to contact me, my email address is given on my "official" Web site, www.michaelprescott.net .
