Confronting a Psychic

     While I am a fiction writer that generally deals with topics involving ghosts, goblins and ghouls, I actually don't believe in this stuff. I'm, in fact, a skeptic when it comes to any kind of supernatural claim. 

Meet Chip Coffey. Yeah, I've never heard of him either...

     This man is apparently a famous psychic and medium, who has been on Celebrity Ghost Hunt and runs his own show "TV's Psychic Kids", which would no doubt turn my stomach. He was at a radio station Monday morning when this happened.

     You can hear it here, where he gets interviewed by a morning talk show host and fellow skeptic Cory Cove.

     Psychic gets called out on his ambiguous "readings" and gets angry about it. When asked for evidence, he presents a case where a woman is actively trying to get pregnant, and he assures her she will be February. Now he says it was about a year ago when he made this prediction, so he gave a five month window for this seemingly healthy woman to get pregnant. If she hadn't, he could always say, as he did on the show, "not yet," as if that were some kind of answer.
