I’m sure you’re asking about parapsychological phenomena, not specifically the study of it (parapsychology). While assurity or assurance might be in the eye of the beholder to some extent, it is true that parapsychological claims are not generally accepted by the scientific community. If this were not so, parapsychology would be a degree commonly offered at colleges and universities. As it stands, no universities (at least in the US) offer it as a major. From my research into the subject, I think there are some key weaknesses in the methodology that needs to be shored up, and positive results obtained within individual studies that are also replicated by independent research groups, before this situation changes.
Home Is it possible to conclude with assurity whether any form of parapsychology exists or not?
