Amazing Randi on CNN
    #2751119 - 05/31/04 11:23 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Saw a short interview with the Master Debunker. He stated that not only has no one ever got close to winning the Million Dollar Challenge, but that no one had even passed the preliminaries.

Asked if he was close-minded about the paranormal, he stated no, just thought it was highly unlikely and conceived of the Challnege as the best way to draw any authentic adepts out.

The proof is in the pudding.

I quite like Randi. I think he secretly would love to find a comletely verifiable paranormal experience, he just knows there are many ways of pulling the wool over the eyes of the gullible, or to put it more kindly those who want to believe!

I saw him on a documentary about an English mystic who paints premonitions of things like 9-11 and the sarin attack in japan years before they happened. They managed to verify he had indeed painted the pictures when he said he had and he took a lie detector which proved he actually believed he was having premonitions.
Randi said it was one of the most interesting cases he had ever seen and said he would like to invite him to take the million dollar challenge. As this could take years to prove as his pictures are well in advance of the actual event perhaps he is involved in the challenge already and they are keeping it hush hush... :grin:

Randi is a frickin Bum! noone has passed the prelim's because he won't let them. Randi is not a scientist seeking an objective answer. He is in the business of debunking, and that's what he does. He is the sole judge of the phenomina in question, and often times since he is the creator of the test he makes tests which cannot reasonibly be taken. If noone has passed the prelims, its because Randi is afraid someone will take his money and make him look like an ass. There's too much EGO causght up in his "experiments." How bout we look towards some university study in the subject instead of some has-been magician. ie. UC Davis, UNLV and Duke university have all come to some different conclusions than our frined Randi.
