  • Our ongoing project to catalogue and list psychic predictions for the year 2007. Let's see how many of these actually come true!

Psychic Predictions for 2008

  • Our newest project to catalogue psychic predictions for the year 2008. Also, we'll be revisiting the predictions from 2007 to see which ones were accurate.

A Challenge to Psychics

  • Over the past several decades, the debate over the existence of so-called “psychic phenomena” has raged, and there is no sign of it abating at any time soon…despite the fact that no solid, scientifically verified evidence has ever been produced to show that psychic powers actually exist. Why not? Perhaps some people know that they will be able to continue making money as long as they are able to convince people that they areally are “psychic?” A few tests to demonstrate the existence of psychic powers exist here on the Internet, but most of those tests seem to be online versions of the famous “guessing game” test most often used to test psychic abilities. The First Online Church of “Bob” now enters the fray by providing its own challenge for self-proclaimed “psychics” to prove that they really can do the things they claim to do…but this test doesn't involve cards.

  • Shysters and bad liars who somehow manange to convince their followers that they can survive without food…forever. These yokels even tried to apply for the James Randi $1 million paranormal challenge, but even he laughed them off and told them not to waste his time.

Catastrophism: The emerging science of origins

Creationism

  • Possibly the dumbest “science” in existence – scientific “theories” made up to prove the Bible is right, Galileo was wrong, and Mankind is the center of the Universe.

Evolution's Demons

  • Did you know that the reason why scientists always win arguments against Creationists is because scientists have the assistance of Satan's demons? It's true!
