Here is another supposedly true story that’s extremely difficult to believe. Can a person see the future and know what is going to happen before it really does? Well there are some pseudoscience topics like precognition that indicate it may be possible. Scientific evidence is hard to come by. What do you think?
Precognition in parapsychology, is a type of extrasensory perception that would involve the acquisition or effect of future information that cannot be deduced from presently available and normally acquired sense-based information or laws of physics and/or nature. The status of parapsychology, however, as a science has been vigorously disputed. The existence of precognition, as with other forms of extrasensory perception, is not accepted by the mainstream scientific community.
Scientific investigation of extrasensory perception (ESP) is complicated by the definition which implies that the phenomena go against established principles of science. Specifically, precognition would violate the principle that an effect cannot occur before its cause. However, there are established biases, affecting human memory and judgment of probability, that create convincing but false impressions of precognition.
