Another Psychic Fraud On Trial

Let the dominoes fall one by one.

 

From the Belfast Telegraph

 

By Chris Kilpatrick – 12 March 2014
One of Northern Ireland’s most high-profile psychics has appeared in court charged with fraud.


Patrick Doak, who runs the Centre of Angels complex on Belfast’s Falls Road, sat in the dock at Laganside Crown Court yesterday as his trial got under way.


The 50-year-old, from Lagmore Meadows in Dunmurry, faces seven counts including false accounting and fraud.
In the dock alongside the spiritualist was Bridgene Kelly, Mr Doak’s sister.

The medium is the president of the International Spiritualist Union and is head of his own Spiritualist Church.

The Centre of Angels’ website reads: “Patrick Doak has been aware of spirits around him from a young age.

“He has practised as a medium and spiritual healer for many years.”

THE SANCTUARY EVENING OF MEDIUMSHIP THIS WEDNESDAY 5th MARCH IS WITH MEDIUM PATRICK DOAK, PATRICK WILL BRING MESSAGES FROM LOVED ONE`S WHO HAVE PASSED TO SPIRIT TO THOSE PRESENT…ADMISSION IS £7 AND ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE SANCTUARY…TEA & COFFEE WILL BE SERVED DURING THE BREAK….HELP US TO HELP OTHERS BY SUPPORTING OUR EVENT….NAMASTE…

Now, it is true that this case revolves around fraudulent financial dealings, and forgery rather than any proof of having used their psychic powers specifically to defraud their clients. It says a lot that they are willing to defraud people at all, through any means, and they certainly used their organization in that pursuit.

I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

    Something else must be on the rise or its just a delusion …”… It was now “scientific” for militant skepticism to practice forms of intellectual dishonesty that have only proliferated. … A distressing example has been occurring at Wikipedia, where a band of committed skeptics have focused their efforts to discredit anyone whom they judge an enemy.” http://www.sfgate.com/opinion/chopra/article/The-Rise-and-Fall-of-Militant-Skepticism-4951613.php

    As long as it is from an unbiased source like Deepak Chopra….

    Seriously? It is as disingenuous to lump all “skeptics” together as it is to lump all religions, or religious people together together. There are many on both sides who simply want truth, answers they can live with, and understanding as there are those who want confrontation, and have an agenda to prove their belief over someone else’s.

    Chopra is a new ager fraud as much as any. This link is critical of those who question him, and is purely agenda driven.
