I've read in the forum that Dr. Ray Hyman has written a book on scientific support for palmstry. The book's name is "In the meantime read palms".
Where can I find it?

Hi, I don't think brianp meant it in the way you read it...

I think he was saying that if you want someone's (with a scientific background) opinion, you could google Dr Hyman and palmistry, and as the > symbol is also on the same key as a full stop, I take it that brianp just meant "go out there and do it...enjoy yourself". Two separate things...

Oh sorry for my poor english! I've misunderstood everything! Is ther any scientific evidence that supports palm reading on any book?
I want to enrich my script with this kind of information if this exists. Thanks!

No need to apologise...

I would say spend a few hours googling around the world wide web and see what you can find...

There are a limited number of medical conditions that can show up in a palm, and links between finger length and sexuality, due to testosterone levels during pregnancy, etc. Aside from that there is no scientific basis for palmistry. None whatsoever. So don't waste time looking.

There is lots of pseudo scientific spiel that you can add authoritatively.Something about lines forming in utero due to movements and pressure lines...in Cheiro's book on Palmistry.Its there in the introduction/foreword.

Dad's book, Karmic Palmistry, has a chapter on the legitimate medical conditions that can be spotted symptomatically in the hands. Note: LEGITIMATE, not pseudo-science.

Hi Jonathan. I did say that there are a limited number of medical conditions that show up on the palm. I am surprised more palm readers do not read up on the few real things that a palm can reveal. To look at someone and know they are gay, for instance, would give a great impetus to the rest of the reading. However that is not traditional palmistry, which has no scientific basis.
