Skeptic News: NASA investigating power of Prayer?

From: 7 Action News

Thousands of miracles have happened over the years after prayer from Dr. Isaam Nemeh a Cleveland based physician. Many of those unexplained medical miracles have taken place in the metro Detroit area. Those who have received a miracle, their family and friends all say there is something special going on with Dr. Nemeh.

Nemeh says he sees matter transform before his eyes on a daily basis. He says that God is now making it possible for people to see that science and spirituality go hand and hand.

NASA and Harvard are taking notice. They are studying the energy field that registers when Nemeh prays.

A scientist from NASA declined an interview with 7 Action News citing that a high-level governed agency is still researching the project, however, Dr. Jeff Rediger, the Director of Harvard Medical School did speak with 7 Action News. He says that science and God work together and he is seeing more evidence of it all the time.

We have to assume that the NASA official is pulling the reporters leg as that would be the only aspect of this story that makes any sense.

Dr Reidigers position is perhaps less surprising given that he is one of the founders of “The Centre of psychological and spiritual development“. An institute not seemingly officially linked with Harvard University, but apparently happy to borrow the credibility the name lends. Though Jeffrey Rediger MD., MDiv is the Medical Director of McLean Hospital Southeast and an Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School he is not a researcher at Harvard.

Dr Rediger will be known by some skeptics for his inability to recognise the blatant trickery of psychic surgery on an Oprah special.

Dr. Nemeh and his dedicated wife, Kathy, run “Path to Faith” an organisation that offers Dr Nemehs services as a faith healer.

Tickets to recieve the remarkable healing powers of Dr Nemeh at a healing session are around a mere $95 dollars.

This whole story has the uncritical stink of a journalist who has been suckered by a quacks publicity campaign.

I mean NASA? Really?
