And they used to send their convicts to Australia. Seems like the Brits colonized the world for no other reason than asylums and penitentiaries got in the way of their golf courses and game huntings.

Anti-vaxxers will make a martyr out of Wakefield.

Maybe instead of a human baby, they use a puppy? If he is simply stating things that people might assume a human baby would be thinking, the change of species should bear that out, I would think.

...and more specific than the baby wants some milk. What baby would turn down a bottle?

Yeah Dave, that's what I was thinking. It has to be verifiable!

If the babies are too young to talk, how can what he claims to be seeing be verified? It's like claiming to know what a dog is thinking.

I haven't yet watched this documentary, but I thought it might be of interest to my fellow Skeptics, so I'm offering it up...

Extraordinary People: The Million Dollar Mind Reader

Derek Ogilvie says he can read the minds of infants who are too young to communicate verbally.

Now he agrees to undergo a series of controlled experiments to test the limits of his alleged abilities.

He even faces the ultimate skeptic in the form of James Randi, an investigator of the paranormal who has offered $1million to anyone who can provide evidence of the supernatural.

Apparently. “I get little movies played to me, I really do, I’m not a liar, I really, really do,” pants the Scotsman, spherical head bobbing like a drowning apple as footage shows the “professional psychic” doing frantic jazz hands while an expressionless toddler batters his thighs with something plastic.

Here, Ogilvie subjects himself to James Randi’s “one million dollar psychic challenge”, which promises to separate the actually psychic wheat from the transparently cobblers chaff. Unmissable.

Watch it for free

All praise goes to James. I'm just the financier. ;-)
