He claims to be a New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, is there anyway of checking this? DinoCrisis (talk) 01:13, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Noticed[edit]

Someone posted a link to this article in the comments to this post on his blog.--ZooGuard (talk) 16:51, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

And he apparently decided to comment on this article later: IrrationalWiki. Drink! (By the way, the article may need fixing and expansion. At the moment looks too much like something rejected from Wikipedia.)--ZooGuard (talk) 13:28, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
It's sooo nice to be noticed ;-) Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 13:32, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
I just fixed the misspelled name in Michael E. Tymn‎. I'm afraid I can't spare more time on this, mediums are outside my sphere of interests.--ZooGuard (talk) 13:39, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
In other words Prescott has nothing to moan about on the article at all apart from a few spelling mistakes on the Tymn article. There is no evidence ectoplasm exists, every single case study has been exposed as fraud. I am also sick of hearing about D. D. Home and Eusapia Palladino as being genuine mediums, they were frauds and were both CAUGHT cheating on occasions. They found fake props in the house of Home, and regarding the levitations of Home, there are witness reports that said he never levitated and that those who believe he did had been fooled or simply lied. All of his "levitations" occured in almost dark conditions. Likewise Palladino was caught cheating many times. Psychology also explains the spirit controls of Palladino, it was all a fantasy of her sub-conscious and most of the stuff she said was inaccurate.
I don't mind people believing in life after death, but it is dishonest to keep claiming spirits can actually enter peoples brains and control them. We are in the 21st century now, all evidence has shown otherwise. Michael Tymn is a well known troll who has even written that when mediums have been exposed as using trickery they can not really be blaimed becuase it was the spirits inside them making them do the trickery or fraud. Prescott on his blog described one of Tymn's book as one of the best books he has ever read, so this kind of reveals Prescott's gullibility (I noticed he is trying to play this down though).
