James Randi really rubs me the wrong way. If I was a psychic I wouldn’t want to be tested by him either. And his million dollar challenge reminds me of Kent Hovind’s challenge to prove evolution. Just a gimmick so he can walk around smugly declaring he’s right. It’s one thing to suggest better controls for scientific experiments, but to declare all scientific experiments that suggested psychic abilities might be real as frauds is the height of arrogance. It’s fine if he doesn’t want to believe in psychic abilities and it’s good that he wants to expose real frauds but he’s turning people off with his attitude and making himself look like some religious nutjob who has a bone to pick with those who are not of his religion.

I think we can be pretty sure at this point that all psychics are frauds. It’s not a matter of sorting the real ones from the fakes when the whole concept of psychic powers is entirely fantasy.

re: #2 JeffFX

That’s your opinion and you’re welcome to it, but I’ve had psychic readings where they couldn’t be explained away as just a cold reading. It’s true that there are a lot of frauds (enough that I still approach anyone claiming to be a psychic with a healthy amount of skepticism) but I can’t discount all psychics.

And sorry if I offended anyone with my description of James Randi, but that’s honestly how I see him. Even if I believed the same way he does, his personality and approach would still turn me off.
