Below is a new press release from Skeptiko / OpenSourceScience. Looks like the research with the Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe is taking form:
Del Mar, CA, September 22, 2008—Do you want to connect with a loved one who has passed away? Skeptiko.com and OpenSourceScience.net are sponsoring a research experiment aimed at determining if psychic mediums can really deliver messages from beyond. And, they’re currently looking for participants. According to OpenSourceScience.net founder, Alex Tsakiris:
There isn’t enough quality research into medium communication. There’s tremendous public interest in the topic, but as far as tightly controlled double-blind experiments, there isn’t much. We’re hoping to find participants interested it connecting with a relative or friend who have passed away.
Those interested in participating are encouraged to send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
