I saw an expose on the tv about psychics and their tricks. It was an eye opener. I knew they were frauds, but the sophistication of some of their techniques and knowledge of body language and psychology amazed me. How they sucked in intelligent, well educated people made me believe they could suck me in too ! Each one believed the reading was specifically for them, yet each one was told the same basic story with minor changes.
They charge money for readings (there goes the excuse) so if they are for real, why hasn't one of them claimed the million dollars on offer from the sceptics association for proof of psychic abilities ? They are performers, expert performers, nothing more.
