  Featured Evidence

The Rationalist Spirit
At a series of talking-board sittings in early 1943, the board is suddenly controlled by a very abusive and insulting spirit. After several sessions he turns friendly and reveals his name and London address which were later verified. The fact that this spirit, unknown to anyone at the session, "dropped in" uninvited eliminates the chance that the sitters were using any form of ESP.
