Professor Archie Roy's challenge to the skeptics

Post by Candlelight.kk on 14th May 2017, 17:41

Professor Archie Roy was a respected astronomer who also dabbled in the realms of the paranormal, becoming known as “the Glasgow Ghostbuster”.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/9946847/Professor-Archie-Roy.html


From Professor Archie Roy's 'A Challenge to the Sceptic'
http://www.sspr.co.uk/#!A-Challenge-to-the-Sceptic/c2c0/559a6d7b0cf2efdf74ed018f

Many years ago my colleague Montague Keen and I put together a list of over twenty cases which  we  used  to  challenge  any  fundamentalist  sceptic  who  denied  that  any  cases  existed supporting the opinion that paranormal phenomena occurred.
 


Some of the cases included on that list:

The  Watseka  Wonder,  1887 Stevens E W, 1887  The  Watseka  Wonder,  Chicago; Religio-philosophical Publishing House, and Hodgson R, Religio-Philosophical Journal Dec 20th 1890, investigated by DrHodgson.

Uttara Huddar  and Sharada.  Stevenson Iand Pasricha  S,  1980.  A  preliminary  report on  an  unusual  case  of the  reincarnation  type  with  Xenoglossy.  JASPR  74,  331-348; and  Akolkar  V.V.  Search  for  Sharada:  Report  of  a  case  and  its  investigation.  JASPR 86,209-247.

New Light On an Old Love Story. PSPR, 52, 79-267.

Most of the above cases are given in detail in Prof. Archie Roy's book, The Archives of the Mind
Many are also given in Prof. Stephen Braude’s book Immortal Remains.
