Overview

Revised 2011

Foreword by Victor Zammit, Author of "A Lawyer Presents the Case for the Afterlife".

By Winston Wu, Founder of SCEPCOP - The Scientific Committee to Evaluate PseudoSkeptical Criticism of the Paranormal (DebunkingSkeptics.com), the first coalition created to counter the misinformation and fallacies of the PseudoSkeptics such as CSICOP, James Randi, Michael Shermer, and their movements and followers.

Mr. Wu was the 1st back in 2000 to write a comprehensive point-by-point treatise and book debunking the standard arguments of PseudoSkeptics and Paranormal Debunkers. It was hailed by the Parapsychology community as a groundbreaking work, the first of its kind and much needed, by noteworthy Parapsychologists such as Dr. Gary Schwartz, Dean Radin, Stanton Friedman, etc.

Mr. Wu has been debating the PseudoSkeptics since 1997 and is well versed in paranormal evidence. As such, he is very astute at pointing out the ways in which the pseudoskeptical criticism fails to account for the evidence and therefore does not hold up. He brilliantly explains the difference between "true skepticism" and the original meaning of the word vs. the "pseudoskepticism" masquerading as rationality, critical thinking, science today, which in reality has nothing to do with skepticism and more to do with spin, thought suppression and control of information.

This book contains the latest version of Mr. Wu's Treatise. It is a superb compendium of rebuttals to the pseudoskeptical arguments which are still being used today.

For doubters and those wanting to learn about the case for paranormal and psychic phenomena, Mr. Wu presents the evidence solidly, from anecdotes and experiences, to scientific research as well as common sense and deductive reasoning.

It is a great work by a champion of truth and open minded skepticism, as well as an eloquent philosophical dissertation. All in all, a must read for the truth seeker and paranormal researcher.

Reviews of book and SCEPCOP website:

"Pseudo-skepticism, by promoting views of doubtful validity, can seriously distort the scientific enterprise. It is good that an organisation such as SCEPCOP exists that can bring to light manifest flaws in the pseudo-skeptical position."
- Brian Josephson, Nobel Prize Winner in Physics, Emeritus Professor of Physics at Cambridge University, now a SCEPCOP member

"I think your SCEPCOP project is excellent! Very much needed...
True skepticism is a courageous thing, requiring openness and honesty on the skeptic's part to question the truth of everything he or she thinks they know…not just questioning the things they don't like…. Pseudo-skepticism is common, true skepticism is rare."
- Dr. Charles Tart, esteemed Psychologist and Consciousness Researcher for 50 years, Author of The End of Materialism

"For years, dogmatic skeptics have portrayed themselves as defenders of science and reason, and have bullied journalists into accepting their claims. They have pretended to speak on behalf of the mainstream science. SCEPCOP is doing a great job in helping to expose these pretensions, and in revealing how the claims of militant skeptics are often unscientific and unreasonable, as well as being arrogant and ignorant."
- Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, Renowned Telepathy/Consciousness Researcher, Biologist and Author

"Winston Wu has done a comprehensive job of applying an antidote to the intellectual poison that mainstream skeptics apply to the world's body of scientific knowledge. If only more people were aware of how sordid the skeptic tactics can be. If you're not aware of this issue, please use Winston's site to expand your own base of knowledge."
- Lloyd Pye, Author of Everything You Know Is Wrong and Head Researcher of The Starchild Project

About the Author

Winston Wu is an Asian American Expat Writer, Traveler and Successful Internet Entrepreneur. Born in Taiwan, he emigrated to America when he was 3 years old and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Mr. Wu is a leading pioneer in the International Dating and Living Movement and is considered the movement’s intellectual champion. He has been featured in various alternative media interviews, and is publicly known as a Freethinker, Champion of Truth, Debunker of BS, Propaganda, Mind Control and Logic Fallacies - a quality extremely rare among Asians. With a high level of awareness and propensity to think outside the box, he has written many Articles and Books with truthful insights, revelations, useful advice, freethought, revolutionary solutions, and politically incorrect but accurate cultural comparisons.

Mr. Wu is Founder of two successful and unique websites that are the first of their kind: Happier Abroad (HappierAbroad.com), a Global Dating and Living website, community and movement with an intellectual focus containing truthful no-holds barred content, and SCEPCOP (DebunkingSkeptics.com), the first coalition to counter and debunk organized PseudoSkeptic groups, and other forms of propaganda. Due to the success of his movements, Mr. Wu generates residual income from his websites, which allows him to make a living while having the freedom to do what he wants and help others. He also aims to become a perpetual traveler and experience the treasures and wonders of the world.

His calling and aspiration is to help liberate and awaken others from fear and enslavement. Wu lives by the philosophy that “new experiences” are what enrich and create meaning and special memories in life - whereas long-term “settled routines” lead to only time passing by without meaningful lasting memories. As such, he advocates that one should not live in a state of fear consciousness (which many societies condition their citizens into in order to keep them weak and obedient), but in a state of conscious awareness, so that one can follow their passions and allow new possibilities to come into their life. In this way, one is free to make smart choices from a state of awareness to live the life one truly wants, rather than conform to others’ expectations.

Winston really gives sound evidence arguing against skeptics who like to debunk all things having to do with the paranormal. If you have always wondered why the scientifc community loves to bash anything having to do with the paranormal, you need to read this book.
