VICTOR ZAMMIT LAWYER'S
ADVICE TO PSYCHICS ON DEALING WITH HOSTILE
The following is essential information
for mediums and psychics when dealing with closed minded
skeptics/materialists in the media. It is taken from some
ten years of content analysis of debates in afterlife and
psi between ‘skeptics’ and psychics/psi empiricists
and other psi writers and supporters.
First, the word ‘skeptic’
is being used too loosely these days. A ‘skeptic’
is one who questions and doubts BUT always allows for possible
future confirmation. Many of the important psi (psychic)
empiricists are ‘open minded skeptics’. The
professional media skeptics are better called ‘materialists’
because it is very clear that a ‘materialist’
is someone who ABSOLUTELY refuses to accept there can ever
be any psychic or the paranormal or the afterlife. You will
be doing these materialists a big favor if you call them
‘skeptics’ – DON’T - call them materialists!
• Nearly all debunkers who
appear on television and radio are professional materialists.
It’s their income, their living and their reputations
which are at stake each time they appear.
• Consistently, it has been
shown that those crusading closed-minded flamboyant debunkers
in the media are either promoting their own careers, (usually
in psychology) or doing it for in/direct funding from the
• When you are confronted
by materialists/debunkers during some media session be informed
that they will try to dominate, manipulate and misrepresent;
they will try to lie, cheat, mislead, bully - anything to
score a cheap point at your expense. Don’t ever trust
• CAUSTION: If and whenever
they come across as saying something in your favor –
it’s like the hangman praising your neck!
• Don’t be caught unguarded.
You must do your reading about the ‘skeptics.’
Study how they criticize you and other mediums and psychics.
You will inevitably find what Neurolinguistic Programming
Practitioners (NLP) identify as a great deal of ‘deletions’
– they will delete ANYTHING in your favor and anything
in favor of the paranormal - and will focus only on the
weaknesses of weak mediums.
• ALWAYS come across with
the knowledge and attitude that there is IRREBUTABLE, irrefutable
evidence for the paranormal /afterlife existence.
• ‘Cognitive dissonance’
- regarding the skeptics - is a term used by psychologists
to describe the discomfort that arises when people are confronted
with information inconsistent with their deeply cherished
skeptical beliefs. When a materialist is confronted with
highly persuasive evidence for the paranormal/afterlife
the materialist will deny it immediately because the evidence
will elicit anxiety, increase his blood pressure, sweat
etc. Denial will follow. The materialists will become angry,
hostile and even aggressive He will try to reduce anxiety
by denying the information and by transferring his anxiety
into verbal violence against you.
• Because it gives them anxiety
they don’t study the best evidence. They try to speak
in generalities and imply that because it may be remotely
possible to produce results fraudulently then AUTOMATICALLY
all results can be assumed to be the result of fraud.
• Remember the rule: he who
asserts must prove. We proved the paranormal/afterlife exists.
For example, Professor Gary Schwartz brilliantly showed
this. (See also scientists in psi: http://www.victorzammit.com/book/chapter02.html.
Others like myself as an expert in evidence have shown that
there is empirical evidence – I outlined some 20 different
areas of empirical evidence for the existence of the afterlife
which up until the present have NOT been rebutted. It’s
been on the Net for ELEVEN years and NO SCIENTIST, NO EMPIRICIST
has negated the said evidence!
Hereinafter you will find some ‘one
liners’ to use when attacked by debunking materialists.
Historically, closed-minded skeptics
have opposed every invention and discovery and have made
fools of themselves:
• Sir William Preece former
chief engineer of Britain's Post Office will be remembered
for making one of the most 'idiotic' comments in history
about Edison's inventions. Sir William stated that Edison's
lamp (parallel circuit) was a 'completely idiotic idea'!
• Professors, including Professor
Henry Morton who knew Edison, stated, immediately before
Edison demonstrated the electric light globe: 'On behalf
of science ... Edison's experiments are a ... fraud upon
• The Scientific American,
The New York Times, The New York Herald, the U.S. Army,
academics — including Professor of Mathematics and
Astronomy Simon Newcomb from John Hopkins University—
and many other American scientists all heaped derision,
ridicule and denigration onto the Wright brothers claiming
that it was: 'scientifically impossible for machines to
• One of the leading scientists
from the French Academy of Sciences stated that hypnosis
is a fraud and stated after seeing a hypnotized subject
with a four inch needle in the top of his arm: 'This subject
has been paid for not showing he's in pain'.
• Another scientist from the
French Academy of Sciences, after listening to a record
made by Edison, stated: '... clearly that is a case of ventriloquism'!
• John Logie Baird, the inventor
of television, was attacked by closed-minded skeptics who
stated it was: 'absolute rubbish that television waves could
produce a picture!
There are hundreds of other examples
of how closed-minded skeptics refused to believe anything
which was not consistent with their own entrenched cherished
beliefs and their five senses. The above examples were taken
from a most powerful book by Richard Milton called FORBIDDEN
SCIENCE - SUPPRESSED RESEARCH THAT COULD CHANGE OUR LIVES
13 POINTS TO LEARN
1. “Repeatedly we are finding
that no amount of science will convince any skeptic who
does not want to be convinced about the afterlife.”
2. “These so-called skeptics
are nothing but hard core materialists – those who
staunchly and completely deny psi and the afterlife (eg
Paul Kurtz, Ray Hyman, James Randi, Richard Wiseman). They
unfairly and dishonestly hijacked the word ‘skeptic’
to make themselves more acceptable. Do NOT trust them if
they ask you to test your psychic skills - always have a
scientist or a qualified afterlife investigator on your
side to examine what specifically the materialist wants
to test. Experience has shown that these materialists have
lied and cheated when experimenting psychics - just to get
3. “This litany of ‘you
can’t prove the negative’ is absolute rubbish.
We positively stated WHAT the evidence is – the onus
now is on these materialists to show why the evidence cannot
4. “Let’s get one thing
clear. The close minded skeptics, the hard core materialists
are in the extreme minority - less than 5%. Andrew Greely,
a sociologist, states that surveys have repeatedly shown
that the really hard core materialists or closed minded
skeptics those who do not believe in the afterlife constitute
only some 5% of the American public.”
5. ‘Materialism is a fundamentalist
religion with many priests but with no congregation.’
Richard Milton said that.
6. On CSICOP: (Committee for Scientific
Investigation of the Paranormal). “First, this CSICOP
is NOT scientific. The study of its origin shows that those
genuine scientists resigned from it because they saw CSICOP
NOT as ‘scientific’ but as negative active propaganda
against the paranormal.” CSICOP’s president
Paul Kurtz, was NOT a scientist but a philosopher. As a
professor he uttered a most unscientific statement that
he ‘believes that the paranormal does not and cannot
7. On James Randi: “He says
he used to be a magician, someone who is also trained in
deception. He’s not a scientist, he’s not an
empiricist, he’s not formally trained in experimenting.
He’s NEVER done any repeatable experiments. He never
submitted any study for peer review. He’s a hard core
deeply entrenched closed minded materialist. He’s
an expert at ‘verbal sleight of hand’ –
and has fooled many people.
8. On Randi’s alleged $1m
offer: “Utter rubbish! A ‘verbal sleight of
hand’ to fool, hoodwink, mislead and deceive the American
and other people. Many applied but no gifted medium was
EVER allowed to even attempt the challenge. Randi is on
record for saying, “I always have a way out (of paying).”
While on this subject, Randi himself FAILED to win $1million
from Victor Zammit – he FAILED to show why Victor’s
objective afterlife evidence cannot be accepted”.
9. On Richard Wiseman: “…First,
technically he is NOT a pedigree scientist. He’s NOT
a hands-on clinical psychologist. He’s an academic
lecturer. The record shows he’s a closed minded skeptic,
a materialist and he has NEVER found anything in favor of
psi. As such he should NEVER investigate gifted psychics
because he is on record as stating that they cannot be genuine
– he violates the legal adage ‘no one should
be a judge in his own cause!’”
10. Dr Marilyn Schlitz showed that
Wiseman’s results cannot be trusted because of the
‘experimenter effect’. He inevitably influences
results to be negative; he does not have the technical ‘unprejudiced
competence’ to conduct an experiment fairly.
11. Be aware that materialists in
any debate will pick on weak psychics to show that psychic
phenomena are not valid. You must learn the classic psychic
events which shattered the world – and which have
NOT been rebutted. (*you could memorize some five classic
cases. To help you collect some of these go to BOOK http://www.victorzammit.com/book/index.html
12. Orthodox science has NEVER shown
that the afterlife does not or cannot exist. BUT the 'new
scientists' show the opposite: that quantum physics is showing
that other realities (afterlife, psi) are not only possible
One favorite tactic applied by these
negatives is to try to show how the medium, the psychic
could have attempted to cheat by using fraudulent methods.
Then afterwards, they will say, “see we showed you
how they cheated” and then dishonestly claim “he
was proved to be a fraud/quack”. The insidious, malevolent
motivation is that by repeating the attacks on the credibility
of gifted mediums, psychics and psi empiricists and scientists
some of the mud will stick!
These materialists will try to influence
the media by claiming to be representative of “official
science”, conniving by negative manipulation of information
that ‘science does not agree with the psychic’s
positively produced results.’ Uninformed editors may
swallow the rubbish UNLESS the editor has the capacity to
perceive the issue with true balanced equanimity and a detailed
knowledge of the facts.
