Two factors combine to make Radin’s evidence persuasive.
The other major issue I had with Radin’s book is that his use of statistics is convoluted and poorly explained. No claim should be dismissed out-of-hand or rejected simply because it seems absurd or stupid, or because of the motivations, lack of scientific raadin, or moral character of its proponents.
Noting the spread of meta-analyses of the same studies where the individual studies are weighted differentlyhave wildly varying odds returned from trillions to one, to indistinguishable from chanceDeBakcsy argues that this undermines the reliance on meta-analysis in the work since they lack standardization.
Second, it is violently opposed.

Shadish writing in Psychological Bulletin criticized claims made by Radin and his associates that human minds can psychically influence random number generators, saying that parapsychologists “need to go beyond statistics and explain how the mind might influence a computer, then test that prediction”.
First, there have been a great many under-publicized lab studies of psi over the past thirty years or so, and these have 1 been rigorously designed as double blind studies that take into account criticisms of earlier, less rigorous work, and 2 employed new computer and video technology, completely automated to exclude the possibility of contamination by the experimenters or subjects.
I really liked the book and now have a better understanding of what has been done scientifically with psychological phenomena. Or is it something more? Retrieved October 20, Sep 17, Solomon rated it really liked it.

But a lot of the mystery has evaporated with the progress consciois in the neurosciences over the past century. Radin’s explanations and theorizing make for riveting reading.
For the particularly devoted reader, I have also written a review of Radin’s Entangled Minds. But first we must make sure we know what we are talking about. This position is known in philosophy as dualism.

All pharmaceutical testing also relies on statistics. This is an excellent work that I would read over and over again and enjoy it every time.
Radin makes it clear that there are many cases of replication of studies that have found evidence for the existence of psi. A Critical Thinker’s Toolkit. On the one hand, he believes that evidence of psi provides support for the anti-materialist hypothesis.
Even Richard Wiseman, a noted skeptic, has admitted that the evidence for some Psi experiments is very good, by the standards of any other science.
This stage can last from years to centuries, depending on how much the idea challenges th wisdom. Instead, we know that these phenomena exist because of new ways of evaluating massive amounts of scientific evidence collected over a century by scores of researchers.
