I don't know if you guys remember when Stephen Colbert had Daryl Bem on his show to discuss his precognition experiment back in 2011.
Here is Bem
on the Colbert Report to refresh your memory.
Well, Bem caused a bit of a stir in the halls of science. Since then, the old guard have been working hard to debunk. What a surprise. They've been
flaunting unsuccessful replications but of course they aren't going to flaunt successful ones. That just wouldn't be in the best interests of the
So to balance things out a bit, here is a list of several positive Bem replications.
