Marcello gave me a great deal of help 5 years ago in researching a book that I was writing about “skepticism.” For various reasons the book remains unfinished, but I will always be grateful for his kind assistance. 

     Speaking as a “believer” (an accredited spiritual healer—albeit one with a highly sceptical streak of my own) I have to say that I think Marcello’s brand of scepticism, if generally adopted by skeptics and believers alike, would advance our understanding of the “paranormal” relatively quickly. As it is we remain bogged down in a shameful impasse. And I believe that large elements from both sides are to blame for this.
