Psychic Detectives

As some readers may know, I've posted some essays on my Web site detailing the evidence for psychic phenomena (they can be found at ). Some folks get pretty exercised when they hear anyone speak in support of such claims. A while ago, one outraged emailer - saying that if ESP were real, it would be used in crime solving - challenged me to name a single psychic who ever worked for law enforcement. Having never studied this aspect of the subject, I had no ready answer.

If only Court TV's documentary series Psychic Detectives had been airing back then! It's a serious, levelheaded look at real cases in which psychics provided key information that led to the solution of major crimes. And it's a hit, as it deserves to be.

Psychic Detectives airs on Wednesday nights at 9:30 PM, Eastern Time. Check your local listings for the time in your area.

Intelligent, groundbreaking shows like this one are putting skeptics on the defensive - and I say it's about time.
