Randi's 1 Million Bullshit
    #1033880 - 11/07/02 10:52 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I don't have the time to really research it. Perhaps some of you do. It seems to me that he is just another guy on the ego trip. I don't think he is interested in truth.

I was going to make a post on the 7 experiments of Sheldrake and the morphogenetic field theory, but since I haven't got the time, you can check it by yourselves.

some of you may interested in the following part, taken from site:

"Healthy skepticism plays an important part in science, and stimulates research and critical thinking. Healthy skeptics are open-minded and interested in evidence. By contrast, Skeptics with a capital S are committed to the belief that "paranormal" phenomena are impossible, or at least so improbable as to merit no serious attention. Hence any evidence for such phenomena must be illusory."

So you dismiss it out of hand demonstrating that you are the kind of Skeptic that you despise.

The proof is in the pudding.

I did not dismiss it. I just stated what i think for the moment. I will conclude after a research. And how do you know who do I despise??

Gee I dunno RT. Could it be that I am psychic or maybe it is your choice of the word "Bullshit" in your title?

Try growing P. Cubensis on dollars, you'll find that they're not the same as bullshit. :wink: 


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.
