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.
A few years ago my daughter went on a daytime cruise, there were a few things included in the deal, one of which was a tarot card reading. My daughter and I don't believe in that crap, but took a shot. My daughter was pregnant at the time. The reader said she was having a boy and he would be born perfect. We already knew she was having a girl. Unfortunately whe she was born she had and still does have a very rare genetic syndrome. Not that we would've believed the reader if she had told us that there was something wrong. Love it when James proves these money hungry people are idiots.
Not that i belive in Uri Geller at all. But giving him the benefit of the doubt for the sake of arguement. Assuming he really does have the ability to bend spoons, which i do not believe in at all, but assuming he does, why would he choose to do the lamest job ever?
What do you do for a living?
Person 1: Oh, i'm a bus driver.
Person 2: I'm a teacher.
Person 3: I work at my local supermarket.
Uri Geller: I bend spoons.
What? Come again? You bend spoons?
Uri: Yeah, i bend spoons.
Why?! What's the point? What's the point of ruining perfectly working cutlery? I would have understood if you worked at a cutlery factory where you made spoons, that would have made sense, but i don't understand the point of intentionally ruining them.
You ever stop and think that the placebo effect is a proven method of healing because of the immense power of the mind. A lot of healing principles use this as a base for treatment. Who are you to tell other people how to think and feel?
The demonic entities are real and their agenda is our spiritual destruction. The demonic excel at deception and yes they can shape-shift and have power to fabricate any type of "reality.” However remember this any of you who meddle in dark art candle burning and spell making; once you sign your soul away to the Prince of Darkness, it's kinda like the Mafia - the Dark One won't let you leave.
Also, you better understand this too; you are on the losing side. The fate of Crew Satan has already been decided. But Satan and his demons will take as many of you believers in mediums, psychics, taro card charlatans down with them to their doom as they can. Once, when replying to a question, Jesus said, "it is good you believe God is one, even the demons believe and tremble." If demons "tremble" you'll need more than a clean change of underpants when it's your turn to face the Judgment of Christ. In the Book of Revelation Ch. 21 vers 7-8 it says, "but as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable; as for murders, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars; their portion will be the lake that burns with fire, which is the second death.” There is only a short time for you to escape; take it. Seek Jesus!
13:05 Look at this poor woman, look how relieved she is and full of hope that her problems are being taken care of, probably miserable at that age towards the end of her life with many health problems. Peter Popoff is such a massive fucking piece of shit, scumsucking fucking dirtback, this is so fucked up
I didn't know Russian "scientists" could be so stupid.
It seems we can't detect supernatural powers coz our methods and experiments are too crude. What a joke!
These people should spend their vacations in a Gulag.
James is opposed to,fakery and fraud? But bringing in a teenage south american minor boy, as his lover and then never doing the paperwork to make the boy a citizen. Hiding the boy from authorities. I lost a lot of respect for him when this blew up in Randi ' s face. He became hypocrite. But there is another term used pedophile, short eyes, kiddie diddler, etc. I dont care if anyone is gay. But when an older man does this with children or confussed adolescents it is a crime. It is also a crime to smuggle them into the country. He just became the stereotypical child molester. He brags about not drinking or smoking or giving up fantasy to live in a real world. But i guess traveling to 3rd world countries to take advantage of looser laws and child prostitution is not a fantsy? Didn't Gary Glitter get in trouble for this in Thailand. Wonder if Randi was friends with Jimmy Savle? see why he is an atheist because if there is a real Jesus and God. He might not meet them for his pedophile practices.
We need a hell of a lot more people like James Randi and a lot fewer scumbags like Popoff. People want to be stupid, they want to believe in mystery and magic because it's easy and less demanding. No one wants to spend intellectual energy on doin hard science.
A message to the The One Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge promoter James Randi you still owe me, Robert Lindblad, $10,000 from when I beat you at your contest called PUT UP OR SHUT UP in 1992 .... and you never put up the $10,000 you promised or shut up about your outright lie that psychics don't exist you then even raised the prize to a million and changed the name of the challenge after I won your challenge and being a magician you magically decided to hide that truth from everyone pretty easy to do when you choose what to tell people and not what to tell people ... as a magician your profession is to hide the truth and you have done so very well too bad you incorporated the outright lie that psychics do not exist in your act. And when you state that police have never mentioned that a psychic has ever solved a missing childs' case you know why ... it is because police never mention their informants whether that person is psychic or not however like a deceptive magician you leave that fact out of your statement... if you just stated that some psychics are fake but not all and I want to weed out the fakers you would sound better and it would make a lot more sense. Just visit my website where their are news articles and investigative documentary concerning my work that prove it.
You believe in James Randi professing that psychics do not exist. You have read his books and listened to him speak however he has created a very narrow point of view from which to view the subject he has created that psychics do not exist. So it being that you believe absolutely in what he is saying you know as an educated observer that evidence that is proven through investigation of a subject is undeniable.
Here is undeniable proof documented by investigative journalists:
The articles of Le Journal de Montreal 31-05-98 & 01-06-98 on my site are certifiably acceptable in a court of law as evidence. In the article of Le Journal de Montreal 31-05-98 I stated to the mother Saturday morning over the phone within two minutes of her call that her son who had been missing for near a month and a half had accidentaly drowned and in which body of water his corpse was. The next day they found his corpse floating in the body of water which I had pointed out to the mother the day before and this was printed in the Le Journal de Montreal of 01-06-98. When the mother called me she had asked if I heard of her sons' case. I said "No but I can help." She then filled me in on the details that he had been missing for near a month and a half and that police with hundreds of volunteers, divers, searh dogs, and helicopters had been searching daily since the day he went missing with no results as to what happened to him, whether he was living or dead, and his whereabouts. Within two minutes I told her that her son had accidentaly drowned and in which body of water his corpse was and the next day they found his corpse floating in the body of water I had pointed out to the mother.
Their is also another news article providing undeniable evidence concerning a dog I found in Lake Oswego, Oregon from here in Montreal.
This was a great documentary to watch. Poor Uri, his reputation lies in shatters. I don't know why they didn't keep that experiment with the subjects blood pressure more simple. The healer could have been tested by just attempting to make the subjects body temperature rise and fall, then all they would need was a basic thermometer.
As someone who worked hard and was looking for hope...I turned to psychics. They are good with 2 things...manipulating the vulnerable and giving false hope. I’m used to be the dumbest person in this universe...I lost so much money still looking for hope. It took me bankruptcy and a failed attempted suicide to learn that psychics are fake. I applaud Randi. He’s a good man
RANDI RIDULES ASTROLOGY TOTALLY UNAWARE HE HIMSELF IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF LEO, EXCEPT THEY ARE USUALLY
CHARMING KIND AND LOVABLE AND HE, IN MY OPINION, IS NOT.
LEO RULES SHOW BUSINESS - THAT WAS HIS JOB.
LEO RULES THE HEART - HE HAD HEART SURGERY.
LEO RULES THE BACK - HE HAD A SERIOUS BACK INJURY.
HE ACCUSES PEOPLE OF BEING FRAUDS AND FAKES.
HE EARNED HIS LIVING FAKING MAGIC. HIS CHALLENGE OF A MILLION DOLLAR PRIZE HAS BEEN PROVEN IMPOSSIBLE TO WIN. SEE YOU TUBE....BARRISTER VICTOR ZAMMIT
DEBUNKING RANDI AND HOW RANDI TRIED TO DEBUNK THE SUPERB WORLD FAMOUS SCIENTIST AND GENTLEMAN RUPERT SHELDRAKE.
[Spirit/Consciousness and Superstition]
The spirit and mind definitely affect the body. The spirit is the master of the body. A healthy spirit contributes to the health of the body, the spirit and mind affect to enlarge or weaken the disease, and a calm mind reduces the physical accidence.
What we see is that the energy, light, is moving, and what we think is that there is a change in physical energy. The physical world is entirely connected by energy.
The change of minute energy in one place also affects the physical world. Just as changes in the sun affect the earth, changes in the constellations definitely affect the earth. However when energy propagate in the space, it must conform to the laws of physics.
The phrenological interpretation somewhat allows him to guess the past. The date of birth has a very small effect on the character of the person. The name is made up of wishes, the place of living affects the character formation of the person a little bit, and the speech and action tell the character of the person.
The problem is to exaggerate the effects and those relationship and see them overly large. There is a problem in considering the low possibility largely or considering a small influential factor as a big influential factor.
Myth and superstition are things that inflates a little possibility to deceive people. There is a trace on the face or body as the person lives for a lifetime.
However, it is also irrational to completely ignore the effects of spirit and mind on the body or sometimes to completely ignore the tiny physical effect.

Randi is a genius. He is such a gem. I swear I he’s great. Someone get him to investigate Barry Keith. He’s popular in Ireland and the UK these days...
“He looks like Uri Gelher doesn’t he?”
You need time date and location for accuracy. That test was nonsense.
incidently, Tommy Cooper was such a lovable magician
I cannot say that about randi who deliberately gave his false birth details to confuse astrologers and dis credit astrology.....
A real stlnker !
These poor people - they want to live, want to be healthy - and they don't have the brain power to know he is completely despicable and a trickster- if there were a sky god, i wish he'd strike him with lightening, but he doesn't does he? cause he's not there or he doesn't give a damn!!! This guy fools the most "vulnerable" (as someone already said) and the most sick. i just saw a vid on what a psychopath is - they have NO empathy, NO feeling of remorse, guilt, or shame. they could set a kitten on fire and laugh! that's how bad they are. . .
disgusting isn't it?
this led me to this: we have someone in gov't who should be diagnosed - i don't
know which he is - a narcissist or sociopath. preppies have no idea of the
consequences of their actions, cause they always get away with it!! then they
get indignant when they're caught - Kavanaugh!!!!!! if you don't agree with this,
please don't connect it with what i said above - people rarely agree on everything.
When you want to believe something and ur vonurble like from grief you will accept the first thing that feels good and accept it. We shouldnt just accept something as fact almost just beasue we feel good form knowing we have an afterlife or something like that.
Carl Sagan said something along those lines.
suspected at that.
Sticking to what-ever sounds more 'realistic' shouldn't mean that other possibilities are completely untrue .
Everything is possible unless we know differently.
i suppose that goes for my perspective.
There are fakes for sure. But the U.S. government has put a lot of time and energy and cash into researching these kinds of phenomina and the findings are redacted or classified. Black magic symbolism is all over the government and government locations so that means something.
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.
