"She must be some kind of Russian fraud," was the first thing I said to Yana and Natasha. We were riding in a bus through rural Mexico and they played a Discovery Channel show about Natasha Demkina, a girl who claims to be able to see through human bodies and diagnose their medical conditions. Here is Wikipedia on the girl. I found this article revealing:
…a lot of text messages were being sent between her and her companions during the test, something the scientists had expressly forbidden.
Here is another skeptical account, and here. Here is a good Bayesian discussion. Here is the Amazing Randi. No, I do not believe in the paranormal, nor is her record even close to perfect, but still the girl seems to have a remarkable ability to read clues from ailing human beings. (She doesn’t seem to be interested in seeing through animal bodies or for that matter inanimate objects.) I am glad to hear she wants to become a doctor. What I find odd is her apparently unique ability to pull off this fraud; is there not free entry into the sector? I also find it interesting that the Discovery Channel finds this story "true enough" to broadcast in some countries, but not others.
