Rhesus? They're monkeys, aren't they? And they make more sense than this dribble.

Wow you might be onto something!
Because I'm Rh- and some strange sense is telling me that you are deluded.

"Basically, some people believe that the Earth is a big gardening project begun long ago by visitors from space, and that aliens have been genetically engineering hybrids for many centuries. These folks believe that people who have Rh negative blood are crossbreeds between humans and aliens. These Rh negative folks are known to have a number of unusual traits, including pronounced psychic ability."
Note the jump from "Basically, some people believe"... to "These Rh negative folks are known to"...
I'm not saying psychic ability is genetic (though it does seem to run in families), but to take an unproven speculation about "ancient astronauts" and then claim that this is the root of genetic psychic ability is a gigantic leap of faith and logic.

Mental illness is also genetic.

Mister Spake beat me to it. :-(

most scientists are still hung up on trying to prove that psychic ability doesn't exist
Ignoring all the money and fame that would come along with being the person that proved all this BS is real.
Science has been working real hard to try and prove psychic abilities and the psychics don't seem to be cooperating.

Imagine my surprise when I learned that she had had all sorts of psychic experiences, that her mother was well known for her abilities, and that my great-grandmother was famous in England for reading tea leaves.
So that just means you're a fourth generation bullshitter.

"Finally, psychic ability does indeed seem to be genetic."
True. If one or more of your parents was deluded and/or a lying piece of shit, you're substantially more likely to be deluded and/or a lying piece of shit.

"Finally, psychic ability does indeed seem to be genetic." Mental helath issues are too. Maybe that's a better starting point for your research.

David B."most scientists are still hung up on trying to prove that psychic ability doesn't exist"
Nope, most couldn't give a toss until good evidence for
psychic powers is found. A few are looking for it with blatent suspension of their critical faculties, and a very few are attempting serious studies of it.
The data so far...
10/16/2012 6:08:13 AM
Psychic ability doesn't exist, so it isn't genetic. Credulousness does seem to be though. I think you might have confused the two.
10/16/2012 6:14:31 AM
Scientists are concerned with facts. So no you're either lying or don't understand science
10/16/2012 6:55:00 AM
"While I haven't been able to find any scientific research into the genetics of psychic ability (most scientists are still hung up on trying to prove that psychic ability doesn't exist), there is a ton of anecdotal evidence to suggest that, like musical and athletic ability, genes do play a strong role in psychic potential."
Keep the following two points in mind.
1: Scientists don't spend their time trying to prove that something doesn't exist. If you have evidence that something exists, they'll look at it; if you don't, it's assumed that you're full of shit.
2: Anecdotal evidence convinces no one but those who already believe.
"Which brings me to your question about blood type. (Prepare to slide down the rabbit hole!)"
"Basically, some people believe that the Earth is a big gardening project begun long ago by visitors from space, and that aliens have been genetically engineering hybrids for many centuries."
Again I'll have to ask one of you goofy fuckers why they would do this and why humans, who are in a rather uninteresting part of the galaxy, would be their pet project?
"These folks believe that people who have Rh negative blood are crossbreeds between humans and aliens. These Rh negative folks are known to have a number of unusual traits, including pronounced psychic ability."
Much like I tell the religious fundies, you can believe any damn fool thing you'd like. If you want others to believe it with you, pony up the evidence.

You're mistaken. Scientists tried for many years to prove that psychic abilities DO exist. After removing all the common causes of self-deception, they always failed.
10/16/2012 8:12:05 AM
basically, some people are batshit crazy!
10/16/2012 8:16:00 AM

I cannot disprove the existence of psychic powers, nor can I disprove the existence of aliens who are harvesting us/ experimenting on us/ etc. However, you are making the claim that it is true, and thus must prove it or cite proof.
In the mean-time, I'm going to leave aliens where they belong - in fiction - and go play Xcom.
10/16/2012 8:28:54 AM
So my having Rh negative blood really means I'm a human alien hybrid? Sweet!
10/16/2012 9:23:50 AM
CTSTDT. C'mon people, let's at least pretend that we have actual admin on this site.
10/16/2012 9:47:34 AM
Sounds more conspiracy theory to me, so yeah.
It would be different if she was a Raelian fundie.
10/16/2012 11:37:39 AM
I'm Rh negative, and I can state for the record that you're completely full of shit. All it means is that I can't accept blood that's Rh positive. It's a bitch when you need a transfusion, but that is all.
I expect your "sudden psychic awakening" was the onset of schizophrenia. It occurs most often in the late teens and early twenties. You need something a lot stronger than tea leaves.

"Finally, psychic ability does indeed seem to be genetic."
Uh, no. Psychic ability does indeed seem to be a scam.
10/16/2012 12:58:30 PM
The human genome project, that massively expensive, publicly funded, research project was completed in 2003 with a roaring success. So let me ask you this: if psychic powers are genetic, why didn't they find it?
And for that matter how come every scientific experiment to demonstrate the existence of psychic powers has come away with the conclusion that the psychic in question is full of shit?
10/16/2012 1:28:28 PM
Ehhh...this isn't all that fundie.
