That is the score for correct psychic predictions for 2004.

2004 turned out to be a tough year for the predictors

Monday, Dec. 27, 2004
They are ubiquitous, operating in shabby storefronts, appearing on national TV shows, keeping tabloids in business, working with na´ve police departments and even participating in ludicrous studies by DARPA, the Defense Department's Agency for Advanced Research Projects. They are the psychics, a motley collection of mystics, charlatans, hoaxers and smooth con artists who have successfully buffaloed a good portion of the public into believing that they have supernatural powers.

Of course, there's still a few days to go, but if these turkeys missed something like this disasterous earthquake, I'd doubt that they'll catch up.

That's freaking amazing! How can you guess so much and be completely wrong every time? It is a statistical anomalie. I mean, even a blind squirrel bumps into a nut every once and a while.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

I am now waiting to see how many after-the-fact, earthquake predictions are put forth and what the excuse(s) for not predicting it sooner will be.

Hey I made mine last week, its in the other thread, of course I wasnt vague enough to claim a total sucess, but I'll claim it none the less.

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini

Ricky, Ricky, Ricky, this is no statistical anomaly. It's proof positive of negative psychic energy.

Negative psychic energy is the power to make completly wrong guesses against all odds.

I myself am a negative clairvoyant. I have personally documented numerous occasions during which I thought of a particular person and did not subsequently receive a phone call from said person.

I defy you to even attempt a rational explanation.

Very well, I predict that Dr. Mabuse will not win the ... wait a second, Dr. M your skeptical nature is jamming my negative psi receptors.

However, I have devised a devastating logical proof of the existence of NPE (negative psychic energy) to wit:

Either NPE exists, or I am wrong, therefore NPE exists. (the alternative is clearly ludicrous)

My position is unassailable. Please don't embarrass yourself by trying.
