Volunteers from the Merseyside Skeptics Society (MSS) recently worked with the Good Thinking Society (GTS) with their investigation into psychics.

The Press Are Playing Ugly Games In Which The Vulnerable Are The Losers

3 July, 2015 // 2 Comments

I’ve researched and investigated paranormal phenomena for a decade or so now and so the terrible treatment that the most vulnerable people who claim to be paranormal eye-witnesses receive comes as no surprise to me anymore. Yet I still feel an anger bubbling when I read atrocious pieces like the one written by The Daily Record. It [...]

Who You Gonna Call? A Lawyer!

6 June, 2015 // 20 Comments
