I cannot imagine a better answer than that given by aviophage. Bravo. In regards to parapsychology supposedly being a legitimate science, here is the AAAS story that psiexploration will never tell you. Regarding the Parapsychological Association, its affiliation with AAAS has been controversial from the start and still is. The PA was accepted as an affiliate in 1969 due to pressure put on AAAS by one highly influential person, AAAS president and anthropologist Margaret Mead, who happened to be a big believer in psychic powers. Without her, PA never would have stood a chance at affiliation. Also, this was back… Read more »

It would probably be best to do a degree in psychology. Many psychologists are interested in why some people believe weird things for which there is no evidence (seriously).

Who do you all think does the tedious studies and control tests that give you the terminology you throw around every post.
They are the scientists who study what is precognition, remote viewing, near death experience, etc, to seriously find out if there is some logical explanation.
The people you are wanting to make fun of are the ghost hunters and psychics not the parapsychologist.

What you are going by is the frauds on Television who claim to be parapsychologists but are just your average ghost hunter dudes.
Look it up.

You have to meditate three times daily until you are able to astrally project a beam of pure psychical energy. It took me about 5 months. But I heard some people try for years without success. Just keep trying. You’ll do it some day.

The Parapsychological Association http://www.parapsych.org has been an affiliate of the American Association for the Advancement of Science http://www.aaas.org since 1969. So, the the largest, and perhaps most prestigious, science organization in the US officially recognizes parapsychology as a science. The PA web site lists the educational backgrounds of their members (most hold PhD.’s or other doctoral level degrees). Most people engaged in parapsychological research have degrees in traditional sciences and suggest this path to interested people. Traditional sciences include physics, biology, chemistry, etc. or one of the social sciences (psychology, sociology, anthropology) it depends on what approach you wish to… Read more »

Sorry, it’s not a legitimate Science.In fact calling it that will anger real scientists.I’m not one by the way,and it even bothers me.I’m not trying to be mean.That’s just the simple truth.Ask the question all you want, it will not change.

I’m sorry; you’ve been misinformed. There is not, in fact, a legitimate science of parapsychology, and you cannot get a degree in that subject. Real science does not recognize parapsychology because it has not yet produced observable and replicatable results that all scientists can agree on. There is no scientifically acceptable evidence that paranormal events actually occur or that the propositions of parapsychology are valid. Most people who have been known for the study of the paranormal have been psychologists who investigated the stories of the paranormal to see if there was any validity to them. So far, the findings… Read more »

I bet you could mail order something like this, with no studies. Maybe intern under someone famous or something.
