ADVICE TO PSYCHICS
psi empiricists, writers & supporters who have to answer
questions and/or debate with closed minded skeptics in the
is essential information when dealing with closed minded
skeptics/materialists. It is taken from some ten years of
content analysis of debates in afterlife and psi between
‘skeptics’ and psychics/psi empiricists and
other psi writers and supporters.
First, the word
‘skeptic’ is being used too loosely these days.
A ‘skeptic’ is one who questions and doubts
BUT always allows for future possible confirmation. Many
of the important psi (psychic) empiricists are ‘open
minded skeptics’. The professional media skeptics
are better called ‘materialists’ because it
is very clear that a ‘materialist’ is someone
who ABSOLUTELY refuses to accept there can ever be any psi
or the paranormal or the afterlife. You will be doing these
materialists a big favor if you call them ‘skeptics’
all debunkers who appear on television and radio are professional
materialists – it’s their income, their living
and their reputation which are at stake each time they appear.
it has been shown that those crusading closed-minded flamboyant
debunkers in the media are either promoting their own careers,
(usually in psychology) or doing it for in/direct funding
from the public.
you are confronted by materialists/debunkers during some
media session be informed that they will try to dominate,
manipulate and misrepresent; they will try to lie, cheat,
mislead, bully - anything to score a cheap point at your
expense. Don’t ever trust them anytime!
• If and
whenever they come across as saying something in your favor
– it’s like the hangman praising your neck!
be caught unguarded. You must do your reading about the
‘skeptics.’ Study how they criticize you and
other psychics. You will inevitably find what Neurolinguistic
Programming Practitioners (NLP) identify as a great deal
of ‘deletions’ – they will delete ANYTHING
in your favor and anything in favor of the paranormal -
and will focus only on the weaknesses of the weak mediums.
come across with the knowledge and attitude that there is
IRREBUTABLE, irrefutable evidence for psi/afterlife existence.
dissonance’ is a term used by psychologists to describe
the discomfort that arises when people are confronted with
information inconsistent with their beliefs. When a materialist
is confronted with highly persuasive evidence for the psi/afterlife
the materialist will deny it immediately because the evidence
will elicit anxiety, increase his blood pressure, sweat
etc. Denial will follow. The materialists will become angry,
hostile and even aggressive He will try to reduce anxiety
by denying the information.
it gives them anxiety they don’t study the best evidence.
They try to speak in generalities and imply that because
it may be remotely possible to produce results fraudulently
then AUTOMATICALLY all results can be assumed to be the
result of fraud.
the rule: he who asserts must prove. We proved psi/afterlife
exists. For example, Professor Gary Schwartz brilliantly
showed this. (See also scientists in psi: http://www.victorzammit.com/book/chapter02.html
Others like myself as an expert in evidence have shown that
there is empirical evidence – I outlined some 20 different
areas of empirical evidence for the existence of the afterlife
which up until the present have NOT been rebutted. It’s
been on the Net for SEVEN years and NO SCIENTIST, NO EMPIRICIST
has negated the said evidence!
POINTS TO LEARN THOROUGHLY
“Repeatedly we are finding that no amount of science
will convince any skeptic who does not want to be convinced
about the afterlife.” Note carefully:-
One experience I never forget was when a closed minded skeptic
told me after one of my meetings, "I will not believe
in the afterlife even if you could prove it to me."!!!
That says it all!
“These so-called skeptics are nothing but hard core
materialists – those who staunchly and completely
deny psi and the afterlife (eg Paul Kurtz, Ray Hyman, James
Randi, Richard Wiseman). They unfairly and dishonestly hijacked
the word ‘skeptic’ to make themselves more acceptable.
“This litany of ‘you can’t prove the negative’
is absolute rubbish. We positively stated WHAT the evidence
is – the onus now is on these materialists to show
why the evidence cannot be accepted.”
“Let’s get one thing clear. The close minded
skeptics, the hard core materialists are in the extreme
minority - less than 5%. Andrew Greely, a sociologist, states
that surveys have repeatedly shown that the really hard
core materialists or closed minded skeptics those who do
not believe in the afterlife constitute only some 5% of
the American public.”
‘Materialism is a fundamentalist religion with many
priests but with no congregation.’ Richard Milton
CSICOP: (Committee for Scientific Investigation of the Paranormal).
“First, this CSICOP is NOT scientific. The study of
its origin shows that those genuine scientists resigned
from it because they saw CSICOP NOT as ‘scientific’
but as negative active propaganda against the paranormal.”
CSICOP’s president Paul Kurtz, was NOT a scientist
but a philosopher. As a professor he uttered a most unscientific
statement that he ‘believes that the paranormal does
not and cannot exist.’
On James Randi: “He says he used to be a magician,
someone who is also trained in cheating and deception. He’s
not a scientist, he’s not an empiricist, he’s
not formally trained in experimenting. He’s NEVER
done any repeatable experiments. He never submitted any
study for peer review. He’s a hard core deeply entrenched
closed minded materialist. He’s an expert at ‘verbal
sleight of hand’ – and has fooled many people.
On Randi’s alleged $1m offer: utter rubbish! A ‘verbal
sleight of hand’ to fool, hoodwink, mislead and deceive
the American and other people. Many applied but no gifted
medium was EVER allowed to even attempt the challenge. Randi
is on record for saying, “I always have a way out
(of paying).” While on this subject, Randi himself
FAILED to win $1million from Victor Zammit – he FAILED
to show why Victor’s objective afterlife evidence
cannot be accepted.
On Richard Wiseman: “…First, technically he
is NOT a pedigree scientist. He’s NOT a hands on clinical
psychologist. He’s an academic lecturer. He’s
a closed minded skeptic, a materialist and he has NEVER
found anything in favor of psi. As such he should NEVER
investigate gifted psychics because he is on record as stating
that they cannot be genuine – he violates the legal
adage ‘no one should be a judge in his own cause!’
Dr Marilyn Schlitz showed that Wiseman’s results cannot
be trusted because of the ‘experimenter effect’.
He inevitably influences results to be negative, he does
not have the technical ‘unprejudiced competence’
to conduct an experiment fairly.
Wiseman lost international credibility as an empiricist
in the Natasha Demkina case – according to lawyer
Victor Zammit on his website, Wiseman lied, cheated and
made misrepresentations in the Natasha Demkina experiment
-something which will stay will him till he dies –
and afterwards says Victor.
- 12. Be aware
that materialists in any debate will pick on weak psychics
to show that psychic phenomena are not valid. You must
learn the classic psychic events which shattered the world
– and which have NOT been rebutted. (*you could
memorize some five classic cases. To help you collect
some of these go to BOOK http://www.victorzammit.com/book/index.html
Orthodox science has NEVER shown that the afterlife does
not or cannot exist. BUT the 'new scientists' show the opposite:
that quantum physics is showing that other realities (afterlife,
psi) are not only possible but probable! Be aware that debunkers
in the media, (closed minded skeptics and the materialists)
try to bluff you and bluff the journalists and give the
impression that science is on their side in this debate.
NOT TRUE! These debunkers do NOT have science to support
their claim that 'the paranormal or the afterlife do not
exist.' Technically, these debunkers become 'believers'
- they have a 'subjective belief' - that there is no afterlife/psi.
That is why they hide behind "you can't prove the negative"
- implying they do not have to do anything and shift the
onus on to the psi empiricists and psychics to prove that
psi/afterlife exist. That has been done. Push the issue
that debunkers in this psi debate are really 'believers.'
This means their belief is 'subjective' and anything subjective
belief is itself subject to error to complete invalidation.
Do NOT forget that science has NEVER shown the afterlife
does not or that it cannot exist.

empiricists who have to deal with closed minded skeptics/materialists.
If you have anything to contribute please feel free to contact
the eighties the active ‘closed minded skeptics’,
the ‘debunkers’ and the ‘materialists’
including the institutionalized materialistic CSICOP have
followed a most heinous strategy. If at anytime anywhere
a psychic or an honest psi empiricist produces most convincing
evidence for psi or the afterlife the debunkers will attempt
public ridicule, scorn and derision – to rubbish anything
not consistent with materialism and to call the successful
tactic applied by these negatives is to try to show how
the medium, the psychic could have attempted to cheat by
using fraudulent methods. Then afterwards, they will say,
“see we showed you how they cheated” and then
dishonestly claim “he was proved to be a fraud/quack”.
The insidious, malevolent motivation is that by repeating
the attacks on the credibility of gifted mediums, psychics
and psi empiricists and scientists some of the mud will
will try to influence the media by claiming to be representative
of “official science”, conniving by negative
manipulation of information that ‘science does not
agree with the psychic’s positively produced results.’
Uninformed editors may swallow the rubbish UNLESS the editor
has the capacity to perceive the issue with true balanced
equanimity and a detailed knowledge of the facts.
For example Richard
Wiseman indulged in most unfair behavior to willfully mislead,
deceive, to negatively manipulate and misrepresent the results
of the gifted psychic Natasha Demkina; he then had the audacity
to write and impute in the Guardian that Natasha as a psychic
was a cheat. But we know that this matter has been reviewed
by objective experts who have come to the conclusion that
Wiseman is a materialist stooge who lost his credibility
for objective psi experimentation.
It is also imperative that you study in depth Richard Milton’s
