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.
oh ya one more thing James. How many people did you investigate that you are not telling about? What about all the people that have shown real ability that you have investigated and have blown you out and completely mystified you? How many James? I know of at least one. I actually personally know this person and they told me all about your interview and what happened after.
To: James Randi. Your doubt is a variable that you are putting into every equation. You are about 90 years old by now and you are about to see the truth. There is no objective observer James, that is an ego driven idea that thwarts integration with the full true self but you are just about to see that. Blessings
I think he has gotten more ethical in his approaches and more humble by the years. But yes, the Bible & God FORBIDS Psychics!. It is divination, fortune telling, witchcraft, the bible tells it is a sin worthy of hell. So it is good he investigates them!. Still, some people prophecy, but not about the future of man. It is said mother's can know about their child before birth and so on. And Jesus was foretold before his birth, that he would be coming, by all the prophets in the Bible. God does prophecy, just not for self gain and vain deceit like the majority of psychics today: they are witches, an abomination. Seek them not out to be defiled by them! (bible warns).
On the other hand, the science of Quantum Physics has revealed everything in the universe is vibrational energy, that matter and energy are interchangeable (E= mc2). The phenomena of quantum entanglement is verifiable. Our thoughts are energy. Human imagination is energy, which has manifested technologies that have transformed the way we communicate. We have dreams, intuition, hunches and near death experiences are increasingly studied. Spontaneous Healings do occur, the Placebo Effect is real, Hypnosis works, OBE's (Out of Body Experiences) are being taught and researched, Remote Viewing is employed by the military, Altered States of Consciousness during meditation and trance have been measured via changes in the activity of brain wave frequencies. Thourough scientific research will explain more of currently strange phenomena. And of course, fraudulent exploitation of any kind is unethical and has to be exposed for its manipulative purpose.
I can clearly see in Ted Bundy's face that there is a medusa lurking underneath the surface and very close to the surface actually. A very scary face, scary eyes. I don't understand why those women thought he was just a random family man. It doesn't even require very much of psychic abilities to see that extreme hurt in Ted Bundy's face, a hurt that is so inflamed that it became a volcano that would erupt at the next trigger. Mother issues, no love in infancy, projections of cold mother onto women, totally unconscious about all of that. Then playing normal in a cold society, suppressing the conflicted needs, suppressing more and more until the volcano erupts in explosions.
See the ultimate truth is that the power of mind and love is elusive to measurement and you know why that is? It's because measurement itself is not a thing of the dimension of love and mental power. Measurement is something that is conducted by the mind that thinks in terms of dimension of Ego which is the field of reality. Truth is the field of love and mental power. Truth is free from Ego and measurement. Jiddu Krishnamurti and Dr. David Bohm talk about that. That's why skepticism and measurement themselves have an experiment blocking influence on psychic phenomena. With other words our imagination and mental power and childlike creativity lives in the dimension of love and power and not in the dimension of measurement and reality. The two dimensions are like coldness and warmth. The very simplistic example of this is how we view a glass that is half full. One person views it as half empty. A more complex example would be a socalled "randomly" thrown blanket that flows over a bed or couch. One person views it as a random pattern on the blanket's creases and folds. Another person actually sees faces and messages in the folds and creases. But that is How the other dimension shows itself it shows itself through the formation of creases and folds. For one person that is bullshit and for the other person it contains much significance. It's all a matter of whether we are tuned into the other dimension of creativity, love, childlikeness, mental power and infinity. Infinity eludes measurement.
This guy just puts the biggest smile on my face, you can see the satisfaction he gets from embarrassing these people, and while i cant help but feel bad for the ones who really believe in their power, it still cracks me up all the same. Guilty pleasures
real psychics have many generations of breeding the gift..and would never do tv..Randi never met the real psychic families ....he did the work of certain people of power to spread false info..he was a agent .the gift is real..
such a stupid thinking of James Randi - simply he dont know what is believe and hope and faith - every term is different in its own situation , whole science made up with hope and believe - you can learn science but you cant learn spirituality in the same circle of studying -
Everyone who goes to a teller or speaker with the dead is going with the hopes of being picked they are hoping its real or looking for reasons to call bullshit , even randi I beleive does this in hopes to find that person who is truly magical like Houdini did before him.
I can’t stand the psychics that exploit loss and justify their con by bringing that person hope n ect , but randi made a point that the illusionist always has an assistant most of the time that assistant is the audience , everything does happen for a reason or nothing has a reason at all there can’t be an in between , so depending on where a person falls will depend on the value of any of this
What is the universe works in such crazy ways that every interaction has its meaning , even if it’s with a person making shit up, what if the stuff dude is making up is still meaningful and happened due to the universe n it’s weird way of unfolding
His buddy is right though , by simply taking away the magic and by taking away the magic it strips people of something , hope, fantasy, ect and without giving something in return people just feel like kids when Santa is revealed to be not true
James...we all want to believe in Magic, and supernatural....toothfairie, santa clause...god...it makes the world a little less scary perhaps? Miracles !!! The Astrology one however I have to comment on. You can make a sheet that has crossover patterns of personalities which is what he did here...when you get a real one done , this is not the case. I can look at Scorpios and it is not much like me at all. So he is generalizing and giving EVERYONE things they all see in themselves!
It's a shame Randy couldn't expose the biggest fraud of them all. Wiki: ''Randi is a registered Democrat. He wept when Barack Obama took office as President of the United States. He saw it as a large step forward for the United States to elect a black man President..''
Beautiful. A magician has produced a "documentary" on psychics. But wait: he redirects the attention of audiences for a living. Kinda makes ya wanna go, "hmmmm...." I say James is hiding; he's psychic, but he doesn't want anyone to know...OR!! ...he needs to make a living, just like all of us. He needs attention. He needs respect. 'Reminds me of another writer I know who's writing was mediocre but his MARKETING SKILLS made him millions. I think it's all slight-of-hand, really.
James needs to look at more studies. He ignores the research that have been done with sets of twins. He only focuses on self proclaimed quaks. Many people have felt their twin's pain, even when they are separated by hundreds of miles. This may have to do with DNA or quantum entanglement.
Could you provide link these studies?
Quantum entanglement doesn't transfer information. Quantum spin is a type of charge. Not actual motion.
I hope this will help you understand quantum entanglement.
I enjoyed watching James Randi expose the fakes. That being said, I’d like to see him conduct experiments on John Edward the world famous physic and Charlie Goldsmith a healer. Both have been proven real. Charlie doesn’t even charge $ for healings and he’s able to heal people 80% of the time in a matter of seconds. Both are kind and humble good guys.
There are true psychics. I've met two of them that blew me away. The majority are predators preying on the vulnerable, people with broken spirits, depressed, demoralized, sad, etc. It's easy to take advantage of these suffering beings. These charlatans do not care about their victims, only focusing on their wallets. It's a sad shame.
Snakes that abuse the truth like that faith healer are why we are laughing stocks. If more of those blind people had actually read the Bible, they would see that all of the believers in the first 30 years of the Church history not just specific men. Whether or not those miracles still continue today, is another topic, but the early church people said that the miracles seemed to cease as the canon neared completion.
Now I personally do still believe in miracles. Have I done any? no. Have I seen any? I have seen one "healing miracle," that could have not been true; it was one of those foot growing miracles; supposedly some people have a shorter leg. If I knew then what I know now, I would have asked him the kid to take his shoes off. Because they commonly slide out the bottom shoe. But, they do do the same things where they say things such as "grow, grow, grow." I guess the chanting hypnotises the person into expecting a growth. The power of suggestion.
Biblical miracles are different from how "miracles" are done today; throughout the Bible, the miracles were always on nobodies that everyone knew and had seen and testified of as having been crippled, or blind, or in one case having a withered hand. Usually, many times no physical contact was made but a simple command; such as one instance where a man fell out of a window asleep and had died, but the healer came up and said, "he isn't dead. Man, get up." They never asked for money, they never said, "God said give me money." They were never popular, and even their own students questioned them, reviled them, wanted them dead. And the people around them, despite their miracles, still ran away and hated them because they didn't get what they want or what not.
It is a good thing to have a man such as Randall who knows how to find any fakery whatsoever. Any stories of healings today, you usually never hear them, only stories with no proofs. Some men seek after wisdom and only find foolishness; some people seek after signs, and they only find things that confuse them.
my kids could bend spoons without any pressure only holding them until they where about 6 to 8 then of course public school convinced them they could not. My little one started around 3. I myself could do it when I was young now I am old and in pain and can't seem to concentrate on a darn thing, can't even stay awake long enough to watch your video. My Mom always new when I missed the bus at school, would come to pick me up even when I hadn't called her on purpose, and we would beat the bus home. I knew when my Dad was not coming home from London we lived in Brantford, He was in Teacher's college in London. I also knew if he was coming home when he wasn't suppose to. One night I couldn't get to sleep, he drove in around 11:30 p.m. I was about 12 or 13, I ran downstairs, and said to him "next time make up your D____ mind if your coming home or not. You see he hadn't made up his mind, which was what upset me. My father was out in the field plowing the fields my mother was alone at the house, all of a sudden he had stomach pains so furrocious that he said he was rolling in a furrow, he couldn't make it to the house. My Mom alone in the house gave birth to my brother with absolutely not a single pain for any contraction, at the same time. I have many more experiences, that I could tell you. Like how I always knew who was on the phone (way before identical) and I knew when the phone was going to ring. I don't pretend to be a psychic I'm not. I just have feelings, like when someone dies, or is sick, but to predict it no. There are special times like when we are travelling on the 401, I had my 2 cats with me in the back seat, I screamed at my DAD pull over STOP, STOP, STOP. After he pulled over, he wanted to know why? I don't know I just needed you to. A little but ahead their was a terrible accident and we sat there for hours, better safe than sorry I say. I have lots lots more, but I guess you wouldn't believe me without scientific PROOF>
Psychics are real but are not allowed to reveal themselves sometimes and there aren't alot of them but some people take advantage of not being able to prove or not knowing how to prove that people are psychics so they claim they are to scam people.also Humans it the past used to be able to see in the future and spoke Telepathically so its possible
"That is enough! There is no need to go any further!" That lady seems so adamant that the psychic doesn't "hurt" the subject with his powerful psychic abilities and
I laughed so hard my neighbor who lives above me texted me to see if I was alright; she thought I was injured and i was crying in agony.
Those Russian "scientists" are fuckin cooky do they really believe they're doing some shit? I mean it doesn't even take a scientist it doesn't even take somebody particularly smart to see by very simple tests that nothing is happening. They look crazy as shitt waving they're fucking arms around like crackheads.
I remember when I was kid I couldn't understand why people couldn't see how evil popoff looked and he seemed so INSANE! He was on late night infomercials
My friend was curious and sent donation from her allowance for the free vile of holy water eventually got a chewed off pencil eraser in a peice of cut fabric with a short note, they were out of holy water and the object they sent her was blessed by Peter himself....Lmao she kept that eraser in cut fabric as a funny story..😂🤣
The last one in particular with the Ted Bundy photo. I thought these women would have heard of him so I thought the whole thing was botched. But then obviously the internet had not spread so widely yet in those days. Anyhow, maybe Im just conditioned to view fhat photo in a specific way. But how could those women miss those evil eyes? Wow
Being someone who’s been scammed out of hundreds of dollars or more by these charlatan devil worshippers aka psychics and have been bullied online by other psychic devotees and devil worshippers who think psychics are real. I think James is absolutely spot on
Psychics are fake people he’s absolutely right psychics use magic and trickery to trick the stupid in my case they tricked me but I’m wise to them now
I can't completely agree with an old bitch/witch homosexual like strong jaws james randi. A man who loves to be with other men. Whether it's sucking their dicks or having their dicks sucked. Or whether it's being buttfucked or buttfucking other homosexuals. It could be kissing men the way men kiss women. Whatever deviant deeds they enjoy and are involved in. You can't trust a pervert ever, under any circumstances. So yes I know without this old little bent over perverted dwarf james randi telling me that their are frauds out there. Frauds in all walks of life. But you have to ask yourself, do you need a sexually perverted old homosexual and probably a pedophile telling you this ? My answer is a profound NO ! Fuck all perverts and frauds ! But if I had to choose to be around one it would not be the filthy pervert. Good day ladies and gentlemen. And if your a fan of the old pervert all I can say is boo-hoo. Throw a fit. It doesn't matter to me if your mad or your iddy biddy feelings are hurt you strange distorted pygmalion.
This Popolf guy just doxed these poor people. And took their money that would have gone for therapy. I really despise these fraudsters and I am glad you expose them from who they really are. It’s too bad no one really cares.
I love how that student was going off about how "You didn't disprove anything, this could still be real with other people, yadda yadda", and he's not even listening to James who's basically saying "I never said it wasn't". I can tell he's the kind of guy who see's someone calling themselves an atheist, who didn't show any animosity towards religion or religious people at all, and attack them seemingly in self defense when the atheist didn't challenge their beliefs in the first place.
Love to see someone prove quackery, that psychics cant prove they are right but give false hope to the innocent. He has a million dollar challenge that NO one passes and most psychics refuse to take, if they are psychic they would take the test for the money
Unfortunately Uri Geller got a lot of popularity here in Central Europe (Switzerland, Germany, Austria, etc.) thanks to several TV broadcasters making shows with him and other people who claim to have magical powers. At least it was several years ago.
I have moderate anxiety and depression. It's been helpful to believe and pray or meditate, but i definitely don't believe in most of the Catholic traditions and ideologies concerning life and science. I have a degree in Biology. I realize though these are coping mechanisms. I am wondering if there are ways to help with that. I am not a candidate for antidepressants or anti-anxiety meds, so I'm wondering to find better, non-religious ways to help with my troubles. It has been helpful to practice mindfulness and reframe harmful thoughts. Exercise and yoga help as well, but i don't always get a chance to go in the beginning of the day where i feel the most benefits. I just started therapy and my therapist said it might be helpful to find religion back into my life cuz ill have more peace of mind. Idk wish me luck, our minds are so easily influenced by BS lol.
There was a experiment at the Stanford Research Institute with the CIA:
Cite: "As a result of Geller's success in this experimental period, we consider that he has demonstrated his paranormal perceptual ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner."
And here the video: https://youtu.be/lERbTkN82go?t=44
I am not delusional and I am not a liar! I have experienced supernatural events several times, and I mean only events that was proovable true. I have foresaw a tragic accident in the army through a dream. I told the soldiers in my team about what was going to happen, it all happened and as the event started I told them some seconds in advance what would happen, I did not miss a single time!
.......................... Later that evening I asked my fellow soldiers:if I foresaw the numbers of a dice thirty times in a row, you will have to admit I have an ability you yourselves has never experienced, right?
.......................... I continued:in this event I told you more than thirty things, do I proove psychics are for real, yes no doubt! Still you find it hard to admit what happened, right?!
RANDI, READ THIS STORY AND CRY, YOU HAVE MISSED SOME OF THE GREATEST EXPERIENCES IN THE WORLD!
Randi is not investigating anything at all, he is just doing his thing called hate against things he has not experienced himself! If he really wanted to find the truth about paranormal topics he would not spend time hunting obvious scamers. He would use lie detectors when asking people about their supernatural experiences!
............................. Me for one have a lot of true stories to tell him and I am not afraid, he can test me anytime he likes! Because I am the truth and nothing but the truth!
.......................... Uri Geller visited Norway in 1974,I was eighteen at the time. During his show that evening many people reported strange things happening to spoons and forks in their houses.
........................ Next week we could read in the news about a family in Trondheim, the children there desided to try bending spoons by themselves and they succeeded!
The newspapers visited the family, they were not able to proove it was a scam.
.............................. In Norway we had a famous magician Tore Torell, he was quite arrogant and promised a reward for those who convinced him this is true.
.........................I called Tore Torell, the magician and offered him a deal, I would modyfie a vice to lock the jaws, they will then hold a miniatyre vice ment to hold a measuring pressure tool. Its jaws will lock on to the spoon. First we measure what force is needed to bend the spoon slightly, then we measure what pressure the child use to bend it. If the child uses less force we have prooved something real is happening!
.......................... The magician said a test will have to be done under scientific conditions and he had no time for such things now. I said:we are not going to proove it for the whole world, it is only you I want to convince and you shal by the spoons and mount them in the vice, the child will enter the room when you are ready to supervice what he is doing. I will roll the kid into the room ina weelchair, he is not allowed to go out of it.
........................... I will roll him just near enough so he is able to touch the spoon with outstretched arm, not an inch more!
...........................The magician made all kind of excuses, I told him I could arrange the whole event in his house, it would only take half an hour, he refused to listen to me and broke the line! The telephone was dead!
......................... Yes, this arrogant prick did not hesitate making fools of the honest children in front of the whole nation, but to accept the challenge he did not dare to. Prick.

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.
