Paranormalist, Jim Callahan

Postby Jim-Callahan » 29 Jul 2009, 05:04

Looks like you guys have an interesting forum.

My website is http://www.JimClass.Com
It should explain a bit about who I am and what I have done in the past.

For those not wanting to follow the link I a best known as the guy who allmost got into a fisy fight with
Criss Angel on a live primetime NBC show.

Also know for my challenge to pay to be tested by the JREF.

Anyway thanks for the forum it was something that is needed I think.

Best Wishes,

Jim

hey man
i was all for you getting into that fight with criss angel
that was by far the best reality moment of 2008
well done!

but the test...
you can submit your claim and do it
but you wont.. you just want the attention of saying you challenged the jref.. thats it
and so far you have only the professor supporting you

lets not forget that you used to label yourself as a MASTER MAGICIAN
you are also a member of the magic cafe
you sell magic tricks with the profesor (roshambo)

so you are on this only for the money
you dont care about ghosts
just on self promoting yourself

go ahead
crying and blaming jref on different forums will surely help your cause
instead on sending your testable claim of paranormal ability and thats it
you even said before that not even banachek could tell how you did what you did on phenomenon and later banachek debunked you saying he knew how you did it but wouldnt comment on other perfomers method.. right?

this label is your way out:

I am asking those who read this site to remember I am an entertainer, artist & researcher.

Please do not get carried away when viewing and interacting with my work. It is to be an entertaining, surreal diversion.

I am not a psychic nor a medium. I am a Paranormalist.
You are in control of what you believe and do with your life.
Just as I am.
Have fun and enjoy yourselves


so bottom line
you dont talk to ghosts, have a ghost called raymond working for you and nothing you do is paranormal.. just simple magic tricks and entertainment right??

oh yeah... and the claim that jim callahan wanted to make was a numerology test
use your ghosts jim, thats better.. why numerology??

Wrong Steve Shaw never made the comment you claim.
AKA Banacheck.

If he did please provide proof and post it here.

Steve cannot do what I did and it is and was in effect my challenge to Randi as per my website.
That is why I did it on the show.
To prove I could do it and to rattle the old Creepy boys cage.

But I am glad you went to the trouble to read my site.

Best wishes,

Jim

What where you proving a magic trick could be done on a magic show? I think that has been proved many times before and was proven by other people on that show. Was it a good magic trick sure it was. Though it was more overacting then my personal tastes you did well and amazed people.

That is all I have to say on the matter.

Of course!
im always happy to debunk ¨paranormalists¨ and con artists that disguise themselves as ¨entertainers¨
Tell me if i am not right Jim.
Jim Callahan started name dropping saying Banachek, Gerry McBride and Criss Angel couldnt explain THE MAGIC TRICK he did on phenomenon
http://www.jimclass.com/Phenomenon%20Answers.htm
he also wanted THAT MAGIC TRICK without test conditions to be his million dollar test...

So first there is this comment of Luke Jermay (mentalist and consultant for Mindfreak, Phenomenon)

Ramsay
My only problem with the way you handle the show aside from my personal dislike for the context of your routine which is not important here as it is subjective, was the way you have handled things after the show using my friends names as apparent proof that what you did was the real deal.

For example on your web site you have clearly stated that the shows consultant Banachek can attest to the fact that what you did was real and that you had no prior contact with your spectator....?

Comments on that JIM?


then we have this comment from Banachek

Banachek
Just to clear any confusion, I was not there to make sure it was real or not, I was there during preshows to make sure they were on the up and up and not stooged amongst other many responsibilities I had.

I will state I saw nothing unusual or "psychic" at all during my tenure at Phenomenon or anything I could not explain. I was hoping I would. In fact, when watching any magic act I am always hoping that is the case just for my own pleasure. This is not to say I can not enjoy acts for what they are in their own context.



so there you go
you try to hang on the fame of famous MENTALIST and REAL PERFORMERS
and they quickly rub you off...

i will also like to point out
Jim think he is an artist and by talking to him we are acting in his reality... like his puppets isnt that right? if that isnt delusional then i dont know what it is

wake up and smell the bacon

I hate to say this but I think you are being a bit intellectualy disshonest.

On the same thread is my reply to Steve and Luke.

Please do not take parts of an exchange out of context.

It makes you look bad.

Best WIshes,

Jim

is funny when somebody that has been accused of lying by world wide known performers accuses somebody else of being dishonest
you asked me to show you that banachek didnt thought you were doing something paranormal and i did
but i guess i also forgot to put also when you called them something along the lines of CRISS ANGEL LAPDOGS
am i right?

care to share the links yourself jimmy boy?
nah..
didnt think so

how is it going with your JREF application
are you going to show them ghosts or that lame numerology?

Welcome Jim,
You certainly are an interesting character.

I was looking at your website though, and found this:

Jim Callahan is seeking individuals who desire employment after death.

I am looking for individuals who would like to participate in my shows and experiments after their deaths. You will be compensated for your participation and time. Find out more here.

$1,000,000.00 Will Be Paid Look Here


Are you serious or is that a joke? How do you expect to pay dead people? With credits in the spiritual world? I don't get it. It sounds quite bizarre.

Why don't you use a ouiji board and try to find applicants?

So can you summarize what this fight with Criss Angel was about? Which show was it on? Is there a clip of it on YouTube? If not, perhaps you can upload it there?

I'm glad you like this forum, and yes it was something that was needed for a long time. That's why I started it. I hate doing stuff that other people have already done, it had to be something unique and in demand as well.

Regards,
Vinstonas

Jim,
Have you actually mailed your application to JREF? If so, it'd be neat if you could provide a scanned copy of it on your site.

I found this section about Randi on your site to be interesting:

Mark Lewis, 'Irelands Top Psychic', offers this after reviewing Randi's response:

I am puzzled why he is merely writing about you instead of applying to accept your challenge.

As he frequently says to people "doesn't he want to win some money?"

As for your "carnival approach" there is nothing more carnival like than James Randi himself. His silly challenge has an air of carnival crookery about it. As I keep saying if you were to produce a ton of ectoplasm out of his right ear he would still find a way of not paying out.

There has to be a neutral judge of his challenge. Not James himself. He should hand over a certified cheque to a neutral party and if that party agrees that the challenger wins then the money is handed over. Then I will believe the challenge is genuine. Until that unlikely day I am afraid his challenge lacks credibility and any psychic daft enough to rise to his challenge is merely providing ammunition to an old fraud.

I imagine Randi's response to me will make Sylvia Brown smile. I believe if you ask her she will predict I will be getting a million out of this.

I am a Paranormalist challenging the world's foremost and most vocal skeptic. For years it has worked the other way around quite successfully for Randi and his group.

Randi has worked hard to get his bearded mug on the television and in print for all of these years. Yet he complains about my abilties as a showman! As if a predisposition to present one's talents in a theatrical manner is an abhorrent behavior.

I admit that I may be a braying kettle but I do believe the little pot marked Randi is calling me black.

Since I posted the challenge many of his followers have found it impossible to grasp the simple concept behind it.
It it appears The Amazing Randi suffers from the same cognitive literary deficit concerning my work or so it would appear.
I will explain again

The challenge is offered by Jim Callahan not James Randi.

It concerns Mr. Randi and the JREF but it is not their challenge.
Steve Knight webmaster of a extremely informative site www.zem.demon.co.uk on Uri Geller offers this:

"Apart from the show business dressing I can't see any reason for Randi to reject Callahan's protocol - provided Callahan agrees to the other stipulations of Randi's offer it should be possible to make this happen".

One other reader who asked to remain unidentified at this time wrote the following:


"They have rather elastic rules for the winning of their prize"

One last thing before leaving the subject. I have two challenge presentations- one metal bending, the other the Deja-vue Experiment on the site.
Both are backed up with documentation and can be verified.

I would also point out that my views on numerology still stand. Randi and his followers have yet to prove the statements wrong.
Yes I admit Randi made a few nondescript comments to make his people believe he's got my number.

But most have seen it for what it is- bluster. My statements on numerology stand as unchallenged fact.


Randi told me on the phone back in 2000 that a third party panel of judges agreed upon by both parties would determine if the applicant won. Have the rules changed since then?

The rules are slightly different as in the results will be self evident in the way binary works. The people conducting the test(the preliminaries do not have to be with the jref present but if it is the easiest for them and agreeable to both parties they will). Will have a simple pass or fail mark if they hit the pass mark congrats you win do it a second time and the million is yours. I would say that they would usually be filmed as back up proof so they can't say they won when they didn't)

And in regards to Jim's application he has announced before that he will not be applying he wants the his challenge to be accepted by them. Which I don't think will ever happen.

Strange that Randi does not want to take my money and prove he is correct!

Nope he knows that his girl child Criss Angel could not explain what I did and that I will take I will the milllion if my rules are followed and also his history
will reveal him for what he is as a result of getting close to me.

Rule one: Do not touch the TAR BABY!

So... answering your question Winston
No.. he didnt applied
he just sent and email about doing some numerology test
but it has to be notarized

why he went for numerology instead of ghosts?? that beats me.

Jim also doesnt like Criss Angel because Criss make him look really bad on national tv
lets all remember that moment again:

is called.. Jim Callahan Stupid Performance.. thats isnt my title.. thats people perception of Jim

Also.. i think Winston said something interesting
Jim tell us why wont you use the ouija board and recruit a ghost??
and also why another ghost? what happened to raymond?

you keep saying you proof everybody...
this aint no proof
this is a MENTALISM TRICK you label yourself as a MASTER MAGICIAN
you arent fooling anybody but yourself

dude.. you got kicked out on the first bash of phenomenon participants
that should tell you.. AMERICA doesnt likes your character nor performance

wake up and smell the coffee jimmy boy


believing in Jim is like believing that what David Copperfield performs is real
here is another clip
we all know David Copperfield is a master illusionist, he had this piece based on 1800 mediums... well.. Jim is trying his all act and character based on this part of a 90s David Copperfield show.

Ok I found the clip on Phenomenon where Jim and Criss almost got into a fight. Here it is.



Jim, why did you have to do that? You could have just politely refused Criss' offer or ignored him. I could tell in his comments afterward that he is closed minded and not very knowledgeable about psychic abilities nor even about 9/11. People who think they know everything but actually don't, are a big turn off.

Here are the commentaries afterward about the incident from Uri Geller, Criss Angel, and Jim Callahan.
