As a person interested in any kind of experiment for phenomena which should not be present according to materialism, I have found the name Wiseman pop up a few times. On each and every occasion where he encounters an unusual phenomena I see he has developed a brilliant method. Note the level of the effect, then set a random bar for it to exceed quite beyond what might be expected of it. I've seen this done on Natascha Demkina, Rupert Sheldrake's experiments on the predictive ability of a dog, and I anticipate a few others if I searched a teensy bit further. If this is not a deliberate case of habitual deception then what is it? Strangest of all I recall him misleading Demkina by telling her her test came out at chance level, suggesting she become a nurse, then commenting that belief was the most important thing.
As our AOM has written on the curious cases of some sceptics (I wonder how many people today know this term once meant a neutral?) it seemed a natural to throw in.
