Pseudoscience and Psychics

Let us begin with a common definition of Pseudoscience;

Pseudoscience consists of statements, beliefs, or practices that are claimed to be scientific and factual, in the absence of evidence gathered and constrained by appropriate scientific methods. – Wikipedia


A 2005 Gallup poll found that 26 percent of Americans answered “yes” to believing in “the power of the mind to know the past and predict the future.”


Many people do not understand the mystery of fortune telling, reading palms, tarot cards, cleromancy, and other forms of psychic abilities because it does not fit in a scientific method.

However, many others, believed to be more than half the population, do believe in psychic abilities. In order for the process to work, one must have a willingness.


Since psychics have been around for 1000’s of years, some might say there has to be some scientific proof.

Unfortunately, no, this isn’t the case at all. Palmistry, for example, falls under pseudoscience even though it has been referred to in many science books because there is no psychical or testable proof.  There are many doctors who have performed palm readings despite this.


Pseudoscience or not, psychics and science both have benefits if you are open to the possibilities. If you are closed off you or blocking your aura, you will not be able to gain the many insights one can find in the many psychic practices found throughout the World.
