When everyone thought extrasensory perception had disappeared into the same embarrassing past as phrenology it came back with a vengeance. In a recent article by Daryl Bem titled Feeling the future: Experimental evidence for anomalous retroactive influences on cognition and affect evidence was presented that some have found very hard to ignore. Others have completely trashed the experimental methods and statistics (obviously… it IS science after all). There are a number of available pdf’s of both the article and the commentary floating around the internet if you do a google search.

There is also an interesting (if you have about 2 hours) debate on youtube with the author and a skeptic or two that was just posted online.
