James "The Amazing" Randi is the perfect mix of Science and Magic, a true conjurer of visual machinations that can fool our senses while, at the same time, explaining to us how our senses are fooled.
In my opinion this is the best example of a "human mind debugger", he gets right into the machinations of analog tricks and sees how our brains mistakenly manifests them as a possible reality. Randi also teaches us that illusion and trickery may be comforting to the human mind, but truth is far much more wonderful as it shows us the machinations from the chaos, the sense as well as the awe in both the tricks and the real world.
For several decades, Randi has gone on to expose hundreds of psychics and teach millions across the globe about how they could be fooled into believing in a system which could potentially make them vulnerable to trickery and perhaps psychical harm.
Randi is not afraid to go against popular opinion, as shown in his battle against so-called psychic Uri Geller in the late 1970's and early 1980's.
Randi has also gone against the bizarre practice of faith "healing" and contacting the deceased, and has exposed the cruel, callous and cynical nature of the people who claim to be performing "God's will", such as Peter Popoff.
Randi has also warned us time and time again about the fraudulent practice that is homeopathic medicine and how it is essentially water solution, dished out as hocus-pocus medicine.
James Randi is the founder of The James Randi Educational Foundation, an organisation that attempts to bring reason to world by luring potential psychics into a trap, baited by a million dollar prize to prove their psychic "powers". "powers" here is a kind of vague term,as Randi knows, so the tests are usually on the so-called psychic's terms. No self-acclaimed psychic has ever won the prize.
Whether or not some form of psychic power exists is still an open question, however many psychics often do not properly gauge their so-called skills and instead brag about them, hence scepticism about such claims should not be so strange to their ears.
Unfortunately the vast amount of psychic powers they have seem to remove all self-esteem as many psychics are often uneasy about Randi's reasonable request and attractive million dollar reward.
I didn't see ONE Russian crack a smile. I know this is like JUST post communism times and the place was still very much austere (and still is to a degree, unfortunately) but damn, they're just so robotic and empty looking. We Lithuanians kill ourselves at an astonishing rate so I guess I'm not one to talk. Worst suicide rate per capita in the world I believe. Have been for years. And people think the Scandinavians are depressed.
"This charged water aids in weight loss!" Says the fat fuck president of _ze eensteetyoot auf tradeetzeeonal peepool's myedisyen._ "People can drink this water quietly and improve their health." People already sit and drink water out of multicoloured or clear bottles quietly and improve their health. Water has the rather important and amazing ability to allow us to not die when consumed alongside adequate caloric sustenance. I a, currently sitting quietly and drinking water, improving my health.
I'm no water scientist or zienteest auf ze nyootrshun auf ze peepool, but when I quit drinking soda and diet soda and started drinking nothing but water and tea and milk (and occasionally some fruit or vegetable juice like Nonalcoholic Apple Cider or Low Sodium V8 respectively) I began to feel immediately better and dropped 30 pounds in 8 months with zero hard exercise, just sporadic recreation like the odd swim.
Then I noticed that the more water I drank, the better I generally felt and I stopped getting headaches as much as I used to. It could be placebo but I chug a few gulps of water nearly every time I pass the fridge even when I'm not thirsty and I feel good and I feel like other people complain of headaches more often than I do. I might get one or two every 3 months where the rest of my family, who find drinking plenty of water hard, have them once a week or more.
Like I said could just be coincidence. I'd have to just follow my thirst alone for awhile to confirm that any excess water than what is wanted has any benefit but I don't overdo it because hyponatremia is not good. That said, I think *_UNCHARGED_* water deserves a round of applause. It has enough benefits on its own, being the source of life and all.
Life isn't Fair- Because we can't choose or live forever on earth we don't get those options and availabilties urges abilities Lifestyle choices we can't eat or drink in heaven or have like earthly pleasures like on earth? which I'm hoping George Carlin bill hicks spike milligan are their? that's what i have to look forward to when i die? or stay on earth for 100 years until the make me come home? because it'll be a nightmare when there's no comedy no laughter in heaven and life in heaven would be no Time Machine on earth all those science fictional characters from cartoons like the Simpsons My little pony,transformers, terminator, robocop, matrix, the mummy returns, Time Machine, Back to the Future, Avatar The Movie or Avatar the game all those Movies and games probably won't be available in heaven which the timeline doesn't exist? because it's infinite it could be boring in heaven for me of cause because that's what i become all those musician from Cold Play Chris martin AC DC- musicians T-REX solid gold from 1971- in heaven i hope you can pick what era or age you want to life because you can't on earth? their no place in existence which sucks reality puts a downer on all existence in the psychical form and life itself? but on earth can't pick and choose when you can eat or not but not for greed or gluttony? "and what do i and others get out of it" what's in it for me" how will i get it? money can't turn back time neither will fame reputation or honor? life is only temporary not permanent? all time trail basis? in heaven we return to earth why? can't they pick there place people events time age if they want to be rich and famous what if they pick 9-june-1942 earth milky way galaxy seems sad- that theirs no existence for those above? 1 planet 1 person 100 million people 1 planet in it's statistics? it seems dictating when 1 person can't pick and choose what they want and fact of discontinuity hope the legend of spyro dawn of the dragon ps3 version will be available in heaven? because it only happens once always farewell to old products all things we lost on earth should be available in heaven magazines receipts jb hi-fi magazines because their no saved to access? and virtual reality could be in heaven? all Super Mario 64 games this was my idea when i was younger not valid or viable now?- new idea what about printers that can multitask do 4 jobs at the same time- and will mods and characters from video games be there because it's annoying to me if they weren't?
we I've scene i few psychic at a psychic fair nothing major but the questions and answers don't explain life itself and everlasting moments? but the fact is their is no ownership on earth because it's Mortality? which is a bummer on life? but machine could makes us immortal but machines fail sometimes and malfunction? hopeful as a theory i thought up with i hope it counts but I'll say anyway all those comedians we lost in the past i hope where they are in heaven are there? because i don't think I'll enjoy it their without the comedy and laughter? and about getting what we want and anyone wants? we can't have everything we want on earth due to human progress and change and nothing is always preserved and archived? but without having nothing to look forward to or me having nothing to live for because everything is discontinued we like on earth? the materialistic world we live in- we can't always pick and choose what we want when we want because INCONVENIENCE'S and hate wait situations? money will make life easier for other's and myself money makes thing's easier will bring some happiness but will not stop progress or discontinued and bring people back from the past that is deceased? "You can't change the hands of time" that would be playing with time or play-god/missah? can't control the weather can't control nature and that's the beauty of it? but will it help the future if we archive all old products from 2007 and see them in 3007ad? hoping coca-cola will be around in 3000ad needs established? continue next part....
This old dinosaur types with two fingers. Hey listen, we're all for uncovering scam artists. But there's a reason this old coot only stuck with one "Guess what's in the envelope" test . He knew that if he really did test mediums, it would require time and a million dollars and a public apology. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crRJX6h5cDo
James Randi, I loved the way you de bunked all this nonsense and as an inspiration to me I have put up $1,000,000 of my own money in a similar challenge regarding religion and the existence of a god or higher power, I would be interested in chatting with you and possibly collaborating as I’m just an average joe so to speak. If any of the you tube community could put me in touch with JR I would be Most Appreciative!
Omg those russian pricks... What s shame. Nice movie, to brainwash more people to hate russians. I think pentagon gave you a fat check, Mr.magician.
To tell the truth, those pricks are everywhere in every nation and the question is: why 90% of people are so stupid? The level of human stupidity is extremely high...
In you movie you mentioned some hypnotists, kashpirovsky for example, and showed a hypnotyc session, that is a science and have nothing to do with those prick healers.
One of the most amazing men in the world imo, I would be honoured to meet him and shake his hand, one of the few humans on the planet who deserves all the respect he can get, it really pisses me off the amount of stick he gets for the things he's done, all I can say is that I hope he lives longer than even I do and continues to prove the world wrong 😊
Amazing Randi really is amazing. For me, he's proof you can live a long and healthy life by simply not drinking, smoking or drugs. 40 year old bodybuilders, and 60 year old men end up dead from seemingly natural causes but this man is like 10,000 years old and hes not even in a wheel chair!
Geller's a lying cunt. But he made a lot of money being a lying cunt, so what is one to make of that? I guess it's that there's one born every minute and if you never give a sucker an even break, you can make shit load of money if being a deceitful, lying fuck and having no respect whatsoever for people is your bag. These con artists only succeed because so many people would rather be duped than hear the truth.
What is sad many people shown the evidence they are being deceived will simply reject it.
I knew of 2 people who believed the Earth was flat. I refuted and debunked everything they claimed as evidence. Even showed with one"experiment" the person who had done it greatly overstated the distances he claimed he was shooting a laser. Their response was it still showed the Earth was flat. Even if the results of the experiment matched what we would expect on a round Earth. I wasted many hours thinking logic and reason would convince them. All that resulted was any evidence of them being wrong was simply dismissed for no other reason than the evidence showed the Earth is indeed not flat.
what was most amazing is that i just learned James spent his McArther grant prize defending a law suit. how did a sane judge allow this to happen? but im sure James was well aware this was a possibility in his line of debunking, but i guess it shows that even if a judge ruled that James was not responsible for defamation, the fact his court entertained the notion and cost James money is insane. poor guy. i believe he is old and in his 90's now. i wish James Randi all the best for the rest of his days. he seems like a great guy to know. i hope when he gets to the pearly gates he says " wow, i dont disbelieve you st peter, but can you do that again using my prop"....lol JJ, me or James Randi arent religious so the atheist dudes will get that... The gullible ...i mean the christians will probable take offence. i would have loved to see James Randi take on the pope. :) that would be tv gold right there. :)
I disagree with Randi around 49:20, he's using an easy cop-out there. Just ask them "what kind of event determining his fate? positive, or negative?" that wouldn't give anything out and it could be revealing. 1/2 chance, but definitely a world of different questions to follow up with.
I agree that is one thing that affects people's beliefs in God. Feeling ripped off by a Christian preacher or just a believer is one of the worst things in the world. After that you tend to see everything about God as fake or a scam. It's a shame. These scam artists are turning people away from God. I'm a Christian and even from a small child I NEVER trusted a televangelist. I don't know why but I just didn't. I'm not saying all evangelists are scam artists but the ones that are have had a huge negative effect.
Rebuttal: This FRAUD has denied numerous attempts by legitimate psychics to talk his alleged challenge. He's just another Zionist who dumps on everyone except his own distorted belief system. Look closer and see how he dresses himself up with Solomon's Goetea symbols; plus he supports , dare I say, Jewish apartheid talking points of someone who has a vested interest in debunking anyone who dares' to use critical thinking or intuitive guidance.
James Randi and David blane has similarities. They both consider them self a trickster not a supernatural magician. And they both exercise science for their own tricks. Like how david held his breath on live tv OPRAH
N.B.B. some off my best future revelations have been 2001 twin towers. 2. fighting through a fire in the Kaikohe new world supermarket three months before it burned down. 3 Fighting China years before they actually military invade new Zealand. telling everyone ex president Ronald Reagan will die on 1st june 2005 one month before he died
The dead are asleep. If you are speaking to someone who is dead, then you're not speaking to a human spirit. The body returns to the dust, the spirit to the God who gave it. There's nothing left to speak to on earth but demons who'd love to trick you into thinking a loved one is contacting you. Dangerous.
The supernatural is definitely real James. And you’re a clueless idiot.
I am done with people like you.
I hate ignorance. And you’re a fool.
I will bankrupt you, but I already know the fake person you are, you won’t take me on.
I need to change the world.
And in doing so expose fake international mediums.
Can you give us an idea of how long it will be before you expose him? I'd like to be able to tune in or see how you did it in the news. Especially when you claim that money. I"ll be waiting. I strongly believe in the supernatural but not these so called psychics and mind readers. They take peoples money, most of whom cannot afford it.
James Randi. I recently called you out on your face book wall.
I’m coming for you, as you’re a fraud and you know it.
You can’t create a fake challenge and not experience what I know.
You’re in your 90’s and marry a teen guy?
Is that true?
I don’t know it’s what I’ve read.
If that’s true, you’re a complete piece of shit.
I’ll call you what I want. I already know I’m going to expose you.
You are a fucking idiot. You’re following is full of dumb people.
Randi is a fraud.
Yet people lap up his bullshit.
Yes, there are fake people out there.
But they are not psychic.
I have learnt that sceptics are really dumb people. They will never actually research anything, but will believe what this Creep is a man tells them.
I’m going to set up a challenge of my own.
I want all you gullible fools to bet everything dollar you own on me not being able to do things science can’t explain.
I can do this, and to do this I request spirits to come close to me, my body reacts to the contact.
I am a medium. I have no intention of ever reading anyone. I dislike being this.
Yet I know it’s real and you’re all idiots. And Randi is a fraud.
I’ve research the subject.
It’s time to bankrupt international sceptics and half witts.
Sechskies Eun Ji Won and rookie singers Lee Soo Hyun and Kim Eun Bi performed the third OST single titled "Love Song". The rookies, who are both training to debut in HYWY Entertainments girl group HYWY Girls, joined the veteran to sing about falling in love with an unlikely person. The rhythmic medium temp track is the perfect tune to make your spring days even brighter.
As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
