DC’s excellent article “Hot and cold herbal nonsense from Napier University Edinburgh: another course shuts” scores again for science against nonsense “degrees”.

I laughed when I read this quote from Gerry Webber after he refused to supply information to a Freedom of Information request for details of what was actually taught on one of their “degree” courses :

“On public interest grounds, I have therefore concluded that, in respect of the commercially sensitive information requested, the public interest is better served in withholding the information you have requested than in disclosing it.”

What’s he hiding? Embarrassment, perhaps?

In my previous post Mediums – true, deluded or criminal? at http://www.metalvortex.com/blog/2010/06/20/409.html I asked if those people who claim to be mediums and the like should be prosecuted for making claims that they cannot prove and for deliberately misleading and lying to people.

So, thanks to a pointer from Michael Marshall versus ‘psychic’ Joe Power, I read with interest to what appears to be Joe Power making unwarranted allegations to the police that The Merseyside Skeptics Society had made threats to himself and perhaps also to his wife.

The full story is in the article Joe Power, non-Psychic non-Detective: A Clarification at http://www.merseysideskeptics.org.uk/2010/06/joe-power-non-psychic-non-detective-a-clarification/

Read the article. You can decide if the actions of Joe Power are criminal.
