Brigitte's Differing Standards of Evidence??

Brigitte, in some of your previous emails, you seem to
be saying that YOU will accept evidence about
materializations ONLY from valid tests conducted under
modern laboratory conditions.

Yet you have written that:

". . . in my opinion there is enough scientific
evidence (see for example Dean I. Radin's work) to
prove the existence of psychic abilities. . . . [and]
probably some form of survival after death . . . . "

In contrast to what you think about materializations,
it would appear that "some form of survival after
death" makes SENSE to you. But what kind of evidence
do you accept for survival? 

Brigitte, in reaching your view on the survival issue,
did you ONLY consider and accept evidence obtained
from test results in a modern laboratory setting? Or
were you willing to consider and accept evidence found
OUTSIDE a modern laboratory?
