A Little Gem Worth Sharing
Appeal to Authority
Appeal to Masses
Appeal to Ignorance
Appeal to Fear
Hasty Generalization
Slippery Slope
Strawman
Begging the Question
Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc
Expectation Bias
Power of Suggestion
searched for telepathy, then experienced
Account Bias
kids having accounts of angels and spirits
Cryptonmesia
past life memories
memories of preexistence
Availability Error
testimonies
Testable
not observable and prediction cannot be falsified
Fruitfulness
has not opened up possibilities for other experiments and findings
Scope
does try to answer a fair amount of questions
disorders
characteristics of recent generations
Simple
addresses energy fields and auras, miscellaneous and poorly supported claims of how autism is caused, many different categories, supernatural abilities
Conservatism
Does not conserve the beliefs that are grounded in good reason
nonexistence of supernatural powers
State the Claim
The next stage of human evolution is upon us
Examine the Evidence
Testimonies of telepathy, seeing spirits, etc...
Alternative Hypothesis
Kids are imaginative
Have learning disorders
Parents don't want kids to be perceived as inadequate
Rate According to Criteria of Adequacy, Each Alternative Hypothesis
In next stage of human evolution involving supernatural powers
Frauds are making claims to make money
People really feel experiences, but experiences are just imagination
Fraudulent
Possibility that Losey is aware that she does believe in energy fields, telepathy, etc...
Pseudo
Discusses relationship between DNA and psychic evolution and energy
Accusations of Close Mindedness
:
attacks on scientists and medical professionals

Reluctance to Conduct Critical Studies
:
may not be reluctant, but uses excuses

Search for Mysteries
:
discusses other worlds, fairies, spirits, and other things that do not have evidence

Vergism
always getting closer to transcending stage of evolution
Effects at Limit of Detectability
only presents telepathic thoughts that cannot be disproved due to disability
vague and ambiguous
Magnitude of Effects Cannot be Increased
findings used to support claim have not advanced claim
There is Never Any Progress
Has not produced any change in the world
(Not really)
