Astral projection (Out of Body Experience, OBE) is PURE nonsense. I’ve set up an experiment, now prove it to me.
Someone has been pestering me that this is “real”. Well, there are tests to confirm whether something is real, and this “spiritual” phenomenon, along with a myriad others, FAILS the most basic test of scientific proof.
FIRST STEP: Learn about the scientific method, set up an experiment and test this idea on those who claim to experience this form of hallucination.
Then REPLICATE it.
Then PUBLISH in a peer reviewed journal.
Then let others replicate it.
Come into my house using your astral powers and tell me what vegetables are growing in my first vegetable patch – the one closest to my garden shed. Tell me exactly where every plant is growing and how big are the radishes (which colour?) below the soil.
After you prove this to me, I’ll set up another 1000 experiments to check.
I prefer using my brain to ask questions, not to hallucinate.
Also, ANYONE WHO CAN PROVE THIS NONSENSE OF “ASTRAL PROJECTION” SHOULD FIRST GET THE $1 MILLION RANDI AWARD, AND THEN COME TO ME.
DO NOT WRITE TO ME WITHOUT SUCH AN AWARD IN YOUR POCKET, FIRST.
I really have no time to critique each and every of the TRILLIONS OF TYPES OF NONSENSE that ill-educated humans are capable of inventing.
The great Randi has shown how stupid this idea is:
