In the meantime, I won't dismiss the possibility there is something to ESP. But, that's just me.
Well the way I'm seeing it, since the 1700's (you picked the number, might as well run with it), there's been only a handful of papers published supporting ESP. All the other research has come up with nothing.
Now on a weighing scale of pro / anti, pro really isn't pulling it's weight in the evidence department.
