Should 'Paranormal Teams' that have psychics on board subject them to tests?

Well perhaps testing mediums would be a way of gaining some extra credibility. It might also add to the kinds of experiments in groups, and maybe add to any evidence base around the subject of mediumship.

Well it just strikes me that many groups test for all sorts of paranormal activity while they're got people who say they can communicate with the dead on their own teams. It's not a case of seeing whether they can actually do what they say they can, more so using then in experiments in locations to test out theories instead of merely listening to their testimony.

I know you keep asking for 'full names' but usually we are greatful to even get a first name. I know it is outstanding proof to get full names, but their never guarenteed. Even on rostrum, people may want to hear from their nana, but us as mediums or fledging mediums can never guarntee who comes forward with messages, could even be that bin man you knew.

A bin man with just a first name I bet; ) Sorry I couldn't resist.

Not being a medium I can't profess to know how these things work, and there may be a very good reason why full names are hard to come by. But my sceptical head can't stop me from wondering why 'spirits' are so reluctant to tell mediums full names and detailed information.

Well, heres a test. Mainly for angie, because I know Mark doesnt work this way.

Tell me something about me that you get from spirit.

Its not that I am picking on Angie, far from it, just curious myself.

The reality is that how can we test an ability that relies a lot on beleif? I mean in order to test, we have to beleive that communication with ther dead is possible first, but we cant prove that ghosts are real.
