    Edgar Mitchel is indeed an accomplished pilot and space agency advocate.

    Unfortunately, he lacks critical insight, and is a believer in more than a few dubious claims.

    He also believe in psychotelekinetic healing.

    [quote name='"The Big Bird, the Big Lie, God, and Science", Jill Neimark, Skeptical Inquirer, vol 30, #2']Mitchell says that a teenage remote healer who lives in Vancouver and uses the pseudonym Adam Dreamhealer, helped him heal of kidney cancer at a distance. Mitchell said that while he never had a biopsy (the definitive test for cancer), "I had a sonogram and MRI that was consistent with renal carcinoma." Adam worked (distantly) on Mitchell from December of 2003 until June of 2004, when the "irregularity was gone and we haven't seen it since".[/QUOTE]

    But what it really boils down to, is a total lack of evidence. I really shouldn't attempt to combat one logical fallacy with another.

    I mean, he claims the phoenix lights (which has been so thoroughly debunked) is extra-terrestrial.
