I probably made my first purchase from Edmund Scientific in 1956, when they sold a lot of military surplus optics. Since then, they have grown into a fairly respectable supplier of scientific instruments to both professionals and hobbyists. I was dismayed, therefore, to learn yesterday that they also sell pseudoscientific instruments:
Remote Viewing DVD. Remote viewing is described as “similar to clairvoyance or ESP.”
EMF Ghost Meter for detecting “paranormal presences.”
3-in-1 Paranormal Research Instrument for hunting ghosts.
This is appallingly bad stuff, but especially so for a scientific supplier. It is as bad as lying to people about evolution. Edmund’s allows comments, and if you wanted to let them know of your opinion, I would not try to stop you.
