I look forward to reading that article.
Most scientists and philosophers are skeptical of paranormal claims. So the question is whether the skepticism is due to unjust bias or to the accumulation of evidence.
Even if there were data supporting some paranormal views, the scientific task would be to explain that data with a theory that posits a mechanism and predictions that could be tested and applied in the invention of some technology that exploits the mechanism. Only when someone makes a fortune off of knowledge of how the paranormal works would the case for the paranormal be informally proved.
If the paranormal resists any such secular "progress," the paranormal claims become indistinguishable from frauds.
