Letter from Professor Archie Roy to Michael Roll (May 19, 1983): Psychic Phenomena

Archie Roy (1983-05-19)

Archie Roy FRSE, FRAS (June 24, 1924 – December 27, 2012) was Professor Emeritus of Astronomy in the University of Glasgow.

After receiving my report, Prof. Roy came all the way to Bristol to interview me and one week later went through exactly the same experience as me.

These are the actions of a real seeker after the truth, and a person who cares deeply about the behaviour of mankind on this planet. But what about all the other scientists and "experts" that I wrote to? The psychologists wrote stupid letters and there was a deathly hush from the rest.

99% would rather die than to admit that they are wrong and that the 'cranks' are right after all. Andrew Alexander, the political editor of the Daily Mail, says that only 10% to 20% of politicians are normal decent human beings. If only there were that many in the academic world.
