David Cameron: the terrible Christian

18 April, 2014 // 5 Comments

One of the teachers at my Church of England Primary School used to tell us children that a good Christian treated others as they wished to be treated themselves. She would explain that even the smallest kind gesture would make others think well of you and of your testimony in Christ. We were taught that good Christians were selfless, kind, [...]

The 360 Solution

18 April, 2014 // 3 Comments

I liken my paranormal research to solving one of those picture puzzles where you’re not told what the final picture will be. You can have lots of pieces of the puzzle that make up some image that is sort of recognisable, but without all of the pieces of the puzzle it is nearly impossible to say for sure what the final picture looks like. In [...]

IS IT A GHOST?

16 April, 2014 // 0 Comments

I guess I have a reputation for being weird. My friends, family and followers send me links to weird news stories every single day. As much as I wish I could blog about every weird news story that passes in front of me I can’t, yet I think it is important to highlight the weird obsession the media have with uncritically publishing every odd [...]

Last month I visited The Healthy Life in Devizes, Wiltshire and told the woman behind the counter that I suffered from persistent headaches that bordered on migraines for three or four days at a time that often made me nauseous. I told the woman that nothing I bought from a chemist touched the pain and that I wasn’t able to sleep because of [...]

Criticising psychics isn’t like racism…

I can’t believe I am writing this. I just can’t. I’ve just read a user submitted piece by ‘Tap’ over at the Daily Grail titled ‘Bigotry towards psychics: why it is no different to racism and homophobia‘. The opinion piece from September 2013 has been doing the rounds lately (which is how I stumbled upon [...]

Episode 91 of the Righteous Indignation Podcast (the one with the interview with psychic Vicky Monroe) has been getting a lot of listening in the last few days thanks to a post by a listener on Reddit. The podcast stopped being produced a while back BUT the back catalogue (minus a few episodes that we hope to re-add soon) has always been on my [...]
