Remote viewing, like other forms of extra-sensory perception, is generally considered as pseudoscience  due to the lack of replicable results, and of a positive theory that explains the outcomes of experiments
Pseudoscience is a methodology, belief, or practice that is claimed to be scientific, or that is made to appear to be scientific, but which does not adhere to an appropriate scientific methodology, lacks supporting evidence or plausibility, or otherwise lacks scientific status.
There you have it. If you think Wikipedia is unreliable follow the sources.

If you are going to argue about something, at least inform yourself. That is all i am asking you to do. If you read the information and come to a different conclusion, then that is what it is all about. But to dismiss it out of hand smacks of embracing ignorance.
I will tell you, if you think that a 10 minute search is going to suffice to overturn thousands of pages of research, you are mistaken. Wiki is great and all....but you cannot use it to refute any claims until you have read on exactly what those claims are.

Ever heard of James Randi? Wouldn't anyone on this planet want that 1 million showing off their supernatural abilities? Interesting... so far noone has managed to prove their claims.
Maybe you all want this to be true so badly for whatever reasons.

We get it, then don't read it and move along. Why are you wasting your time in this thread with people that clearly don't see it the same way as you.

Honestly, and with all due respect, but this is the kind of attitude I would expect from a 5 year old kid, but with a lot of difficult words.
It's like a kid not having a toy, and all the other groups, or the "leader" pointing down on him using that to rulle him out of the group, making him think he is inferior, fighting for being accepted. The ones that have, feel special, that they belong to the group, that they are "better".
To me this is just manipulation of information, claiming that one has all the knowledge, and the others who simply don't agree, or are looking deeper will never understand it because they don't have something made up like the "Mental Information Processing Grid".
...btw, you know who also uses this "technique"? Cult leaders.
