I dont think we are evolving away from it so much as the government is steering us away from it with food additives to pollute our bodies and media to distract our minds and endless other things that prevent a truely spiritual existance that one often needs to fully utilize their psychic gifts.
I think all this noise and chaos and fat food..oops I meant fast food.. is an intentional device to stifle our abilities.

I think the core of the matter is that we live in a society where people see something 'unnatural' as "to be feared". In my belief, it was something we lost when we dedicated ourselves to science and forgot our spirituality. If it is a drawback, and is a power of the mind itself, then why does it only show itself in our grasp, when the mind is calm, spirituality hightened and belief strong?
Makes no sense to me why it should be a drawback if it is the result of long training, or even because it is a power of the mind. If we should fear the paranormal, we should also fear our minds. Do we fear our minds? No, then we have nothing to fear from psychic powers.
My 2 cents, nontheless.

1. GC: You will have before you the information given through this channel on the lost continent of Atlantis. You will please continue with this information, and answer the questions which I will ask regarding same.
2. EC: Yes. In understanding, then, in the present terminology, occult science, or psychic science - as seen, this was the natural or nature's activity in that experience, and not termed a science - any more than would be the desire for food by a new born babe. Rather the natural consequence. This explanation may of necessity take on some forms that may possibly be confusing at times, but illustrations may be made through the various types of occult science, or psychic manifestations, that may clarify for the student something of the various types of psychic manifestations in the present, as well as that that was natural in this period.
3. There is, as has been oft given, quite a difference - and much differentiation should be made - in mysticism and psychic, or occult science as termed today.
Hence we find in this particular moulding or mouldive stage, that in which there was the greater development of, and use of, that as is termed or called psychic and occult forces, or science - in the present terminology, or age.
6. Illustrating, then, that as to how this was used by those entities, those beings, in the formative stage of their experience or sojourn among that as had been created in all of its splendor to supply every want or desire that might be called forth by that being, with all of its attributes physical, mental AND SPIRITUAL at hand; for, as has been given, even unto the four hundred thousandth generation from the first creation was it prepared for man's indwelling. As we today (turn to today), we find there the developments of those resources. How long have they remained? Since the beginning! How long has man been able to use them for his undoing, or his pleasure, or for his regeneration? Since the knowledge of some source has awakened within its psychic force, or source, of the apparatus, or the form that it takes, either in a physical or mental (for remember, Mind is the Builder - and it moves along those channels through which, and by which, it may bring into existence in whatever dimension or sphere from which it is reasoning, or reasoning toward - see) - and as these may be illustrated in the present

We are not moving away from it. It is a matter of what we are taught or trained to think. And i don't believe that it all comes down to being a scientific society...it also comes down to being a religious society.
Some religions look upon people with psychic abilities as being in cahoots with satan. That being able to see ghosts or to predict something in the future can only come from satan. They could never believe that they are gifts from God. Other religions embrace the paranormal.
Science tries to find a "reasonable" explaination for these gifts while doctors say that the person is mentally ill.
One day people like me are "fashionable" and the next day those same people are coming to my back door for spiritual advice in secret.
