2010-11-09 : Psi Funny
This is absolutely hilarious:
Feeling the Future: Experimental Evidence for Anomalous Retroactive Influences on Cognition and Affect by Daryl J. Bem, Cornell University (pdf link).
I don't feel the need to register my skepticism-or-faith, and I hope you don't either. It's not my job to decide what must be true and what must not be true! If there's one thing about science that I'm pretty sure of, it's that well-designed studies are better qualified than my personal opinions and judgments to determine the truth of a matter.
Meanwhile, true or not, his paper is layered through with brilliant jokes. He had me laughing out loud. Are all psych papers this funny?
