Over at James Randi's website, Jamy Ian Swiss has a fascinating blog post discussing Daryl Bem's claims in "Feeling the Future" that the college students were receiving information from the future to aid them in the present. Swiss says much more thoroughly and eloquently what I tried and failed to say about Bem's work a couple of months ago--that this claim is highly suspicious, likely specious, and utterly devoid of the context needed to prove what it claims to demonstrate. Highly recommended.
