C4chaos twittered about this plug for this bit on "the evidence for reincarnation." It demands a reply. One Charles T. Tart said:
This begs a response from me. It's just asking for one. I may come back to it later, but it reminds me of this article from Malcom Gladwell on "cold readers," and their miserable track record.
But, having perused Tart's book on-line, via Amazon, I can say that the phrase "confidence interval" does not appear in its Amazon search; scanning through what Amazon showed illustrated that in no way is the book intended to convince people who might be scientifically inclined. If Dr. Tart had the evidence he's claimed exists for "the paranormal," then he could easily pick up a cool $1 million from James Randi.
On edit: I do realize I should prepare a post on rebirth and reincarnation, as well as go deeper on science versus woo and why Buddhism should as much as possible free itself from woo. That will take some preparation from me.
