      Group That Debunks Paranormal To Open Office In Manhattan

      (New York-AP, March 10, 2003) � When the Center for Free Inquiry opens its newest office in Manhattan, it couldn't ask for a better greeting.

      The ornate sign outside the building at 30 Rockefeller Center reads "Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of our times" and a sculpture of the Greek god Prometheus stands prominently nearby.

      "If we had a patron saint, he would be ours," CFI-Metro NY Chairman Austin Dacey says of Prometheus, who brought fire and intelligence to humanity.

      They whine about "irresposible representation of the paranormal and supernatural phenomena by the media." They have two "subdivisions" and yes, you guessed it, CISCOP is one of them, the other is The Council for Secular Humanism. Paul Kurtz, apparently not satisified with being one of the founding fathers of CSICOP, is a founder of this new incarnation. They contradict themselves by saying they're committed to 'freedom of inquiry" yet are proud that they'll be able to "help journalists remain wary of claims about paranormal phenomena such as psychics. "
