So I was doing some research on psychics and I came across Herb Dewey, peychobabble proclaimed psychic who is deceased. He is dewwy author of several books on how to do cold reading for “entertainment” and in those admits what he does is not paranormal. A psychic who publishes material on how to be psychic by using magician’s methods. Does anyone have more information about this guy? Originally Posted by Questioninggeller.

Herb Dewey – Psychobabble
People interested in this topic might find entertaining: The Elibron facsimile was published in Well worth reading! Essentially it is the story of someone not named who was conned into helping a bogus “medium” who eventually came to realise that the whole thing was a complete fraud. The man responsible for the fraud not hoax eventually admited that it was just that. As a tale of one man being exploited, it is well worth reading.

Never attribute to stupidity that which can be adequately explained by aliens. Find More Posts by aggle-rithm. Originally Posted by aggle-rithm.

I did just finish Mark Edward’s book Psychic Blues: Confessions of a Conflicted Medium, which seems to be similar.
James Randi wrote the foreward. Edward seems to be a rather well-known skeptic. He started out as a magician and mentalist, then worked the line for Psychic Friends and did psychic readings for years, building up a career as a psychic by using the magician and mentalism tricks of the trade.
As far as I can tell, he still does them. What I can’t figure out, having just finished the book, is whether or not he believes there is anything paranormal going on with psychic readings? But it’s an interesting insider look at the industry, kind of like a modern day Psychic Mafia. He starts out as a huckster with a conscience but not enough of a conscience to prevent him from trying to make a living as a psychic using every trick he knows.

I met him in a crystal store in Annapolis, Maryland in June He never looked at me. His head was down the entire time and he jotted down notes the entire reading. I did not speak the entire time. He wrote down my birthdate, age, the number of pregnancies and live births.
He also wrote a number that represented how many children I would mother in my life. He wrote down how long I’d be married I had just been married for a few years at this timehe wrote down how many love affairs I’d have and the path my career would take. And, the age I would die. Every thing he wrote down has happened exactly as he wrote it. I called his home to speak to him the night after he died in his sleep. If this man was using magic techniques to be do readings – I’d love to read the book that taught him to do what he did for me.

His phone number was on the psychobabbel of the flyer. I’d tried many times before to call but I always got an answering machine. The one time I got an answer it was a family member that answered and told me he’d passed peacefully in his sleep.
To the person that asked about the age of my death. He said to me and wrote it down. I guess unless I take my life or jump in front of a truck I’ve got a while to psychobavble and how I choose to spend the rest of my years will determine how I die at At least that is how I like to think of it. As for heb how many children I would have – I had 5 pregnancies, 3 live births 2 stepchildren and my sister passed leaving 3 more.
I do not know how he did it but I wasn’t alone dewwey my reading – my best friend was visiting from Italy and I asked her psycnobabble sit in with me.
We were both blown away by his reading. I left in tears at the thought my marriage and family could fall apart and made my friend promise to not repeat what he’d said to anyone. The only proof I have are the notes he penned on the back of his flyer.
Every once and a while I go back to look at them. So, I take it all the “skeptics” out there really don’t believe that “seers” exist. Sewey, I take it all the sceptics out there really don’t believe that “seers” exist. Last psycgobabble by fagin ; 11th July at I mean, the only jewelry I wore at the time were a gold pair of earing and a gold wedding band. He guessed my birthday to the day and year. Lucky guess since he only had days to choose from and a range between Fagin, Nothing that you just wrote makes any sense at all to me.

I take that “random words” are the notes he jotted down. I have not used that piece of paper as a guide to how live my life – But, every time I run across it looking for something else I shake my head in disbelief.
Why are you so cynical and skeptical that this certain ability may be possible? Last edited by Tale ; 11th July at You just want to pick it apart for the sense of an argument down to the spelling of a word that only really defines what country were from. You must either be Canadian or English.
And why is he reading my hard drive? The thing is; I had no situation. I ppsychobabble happily married, sightseeing in Annapolis with my friends from Italy and just happened upon this reading and we thought it would be fun. Both my friend and I walked out to meet our husbands for lunch in tears. Fake, fraud or whatever – Herb Dewey was good at what he did. David Copperfield and Derren Brown are good at what they do too. Psuchobabble – Kinda like God.
No evidence that he exists. No one has proved that there is one. We fight for the Lady Babylon!!! My main point would be this: The Million dollar challenge is well known and has been out for quite some time now. If the ability were natural and readily available to turn on the instant someone wanted a reading, why has heerb one successfully taken and won the challenge?
Not only would they get a nice chunk of change in the pocket but the best endorsement ever. The problem is people, lots of times, desperately want things to be true so no amount of proof – like the guy flat out saying he is pulling a trick – will convince them otherwise.
