First Astrology, Now ESP and PK
At the Dover intelligent design trial, Michael Behe testified that opening the door of science to ID would allow more arcane sciences, such as astrology, to come in as well.
Now we learn from dear, dear Denyse "Buy My Book" O'Leary that "the laboratory evidence does confirm psi as a LOW level effect. It may be a logical consequence of quantum entanglement (?). "
You can believe it, because it's in her book, The Spiritual Mind.
Psi, of course, is a name for parapsychological phenomena, such as extra-sensory perception (ESP) and psychokinesis (PK).
With intelligent design, it seems, the big tent of science is being turned into a three ring circus. Next up, dowsing, Homeopathy, and Orgone energy.
Denyse, since you have "often wondered if [your] cats have a theory of mind and [you've] come to the conclusion that, in general, they take very precise note of what other creatures do," this Penn & Teller video is for you.
