Randomness for dummies

February 16, 2006 at 3:53 pm | Posted in Ramblings, skepticism | 1 Comment

I just found a nice article (in Dutch). It describes an experiment from Ruper Sheldrake that “proves” that people know when they are stared at. In this article they debunk that experiment by showing that the test setup described by Sheldrake wasn’t actually that random at all. He has made the same mistake as the people from the Heartmath institute that claim that your heart can predict the future. Look in one of my previous blogs for more details.

Oh, and if you want to be utterly bored, you can read Sheldrake’s articles here and here.
