Gonzalez-Quevado, Oscar
Director of the Centro Latino-Americano de Parapsicologia,
S˜ao Paulo, Brazil. Gonzalez-Quevado is a Spanish-born Jesuit
priest, residing in S˜ao Paulo, who condemns Spiritualist miracles,
which he ridicules by performing his own (which he claims
to be phoney). His public demonstrations of such feats as apparently
levitating a young girl in the open air, however, have
tended to encourage belief in miraculous powers by many in his
audiences. He has also parodied psychic surgery and reportedly
has summarized his experience with the paranormal by
saying, ‘‘Everything is in the mind. Clairvoyance is just a trick,
and if people have visions or hear voices, it is just a hallucination.’’
