Sirnex you are one of the biggest sceptics around on this site
Thank you, honestly. It's better to be skeptical of things rather than blindly believing in them because it sounds cool. I appreciate the compliment.
do you honestly think you could even perform the experiment correctly if you don’t believe it would work in the first place?
Considering other skeptical people have done it and obtained positive results, yes I do.
How do we also know you won’t put in fake results?
How do we know none of the people on youtube faked the results, or the original experimenter?
Look at the videos on youtube, there’s enough people on there that were sceptics and performed the experiment, and got surprising results.
I had, but one video really stuck out for me and I plan on performing the experiment with the same tight rigid controls as this man does. I do hope
you enjoy the video and possibly walk away from it with a more *questioning* mindset.
When one conducts the experiment with such tight rigid controls so as to minimize as much as humanly possible any bacterial introduction, it really
makes you wonder. Is it human thought, or is it simply inadequate control methods that produce the results. Which is exactly why I plan on conducting
the experiment in a controlled sterilized setting so as to make one-hundred percent sure that it's my thoughts that bring about change in the rice
and not bacteria.
Don't worry, I won't fake the results nor am I against obtaining positive results indicating that thought does control reality. I have never been
*against* the idea of this. I am only against the erroneous usage of science in an attempt to "prove" it. Making false claims about what science
says doesn't make something true, that is my only issue. I am open to the possibilities of ESP/Magic and to a creator as well. I don't blindly
believe in these thing's because there is no evidence I can see for these things. Blind belief is intellectual laziness. Skepticism is about keeping
a healthy state of mind.
