Michael Britt – The Psych Files – Dr. Darly Bem and the Parapsychology PSYOP |328| by Alex Tsakiris | Oct 5 | Consciousness Science, Parapsychology Please Share Share on Twitter What do new replications of Dr. Daryl Bem’s parapsychology research tell us about the original phony replications? photo by: Skeptiko On this episode of Skeptiko I’m joined by science/psychology podcaster and creator of ThePsychFiles.com, Dr. Michael Britt. And while I didn’t contact Michael looking for a way to follow-up on Dr. Daryl Bem’s Feeling the Future experiment, I found one… and a lot more. Because it’s only through the lens of time (Bem’s original work was published in 2011) and especially through the hard work of Bem’s and his colleagues to replicate this important parapsychology experiment 90 times that can we truly appreciate the PSYOP parapsychologists are up against… Michael Britt: I have to say I’m a little uncomfortable with you playing clips from previous episodes. I don’t know if it’s fair to play a clip from what someone said without that person being here. Alex Tsakiris: Well the first clip was your clip, right? Michael Britt: And frankly, I was curious whether or not you used my clip. And I thought to myself, you know, if I go along with this guy and I say something that he disagrees with. So it’s three or four episodes down the line, are you going to say, “Here’s a clip of Michael Britt saying this,” and then criticize it without me being there to say, “Well, you know, he didn’t clarify.” Alex Tsakiris: Let’s break that down because this could be the most important part of the discussion. Michael, I played a clip from your show. So if it was a clip that was out of context, I would understand that objection and we could deal with that. Was the clip out of context? Was it different? Did I edit out something at the beginning or the end that would add to what you said? Michael Britt: Not to my knowledge.
