    'I assume it means that he has failed to publish a scientific paper in a peer reviewed journal.'

    There are more on the websites for the Nature and Science journals. I just am too tired to type any more out. Just put Caharles Tart in the search box.

    If Tart published a paper in '74 showing verifiable evidence for telepathy and another one in '80 about remote viewing - what happened?

    Do you think maybe the paper didn't stack up?

    What do you mean what happened Cofty? Are you referring to the article you quoted yesterday from Wikipedia that was negative about him? Seriously, Wikipedia?

  • cofty

    Xan - You quoted Tart as if his research had shown that the paranormal had scientific foundation.

    I did a 10 second search and found criticism of his work quoted on Wiki and suggested there may be grounds for skepticism of his assertions. That was a reasonable use of Wiki. I had neither the time nor interest to research any further.

    I know nothing about his work but I do know that Randi's $1m remains unclaimed. If Tart or anybody else has published papers establishing proof of the paranormal I am guessing we would have heard.

    I'm not the one making extraordinary claims.

    Here is an article about Tart you may want to take into consideration...

    As for Tart's claim about the significance of ESP and ESP research, I can only call them self-serving claims of an incompetent egoist or naive claims of a deluded psychologist.
