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.


So that means that a mutually agreed third party will decide the test then? And not JREF? If so, then why don't they just find an objective third party with no vested interest in either side?

And why can't Callahan just mail the JREF application, to put the ball back in JREF's court? Anyone can mail an application in an envelope. Even I could.

What controls does Randi insist on that Callahan doesn't like?

In these disputes, I can't seem to find a logical reason why the test can't proceed. Both sides just use ad hominem attacks on each other without end.

C'mon man get hep to the truth.

I got $20,000.00 that says I can do what I say.

Read my site as per my Boy Howdy I am here.
(My first post on this site)

Randi and the cult have been running from me for years and so I did the test live on network live TV....Prime time.
Now what have you got to say?

Just to make it clear for the slow boys (Hope you aint one) it is my challenge and has nothing to do with the JREF.

He made the comment and I have proven again and again I can do what I say.

Also would point out not one of the JREF boys have been able to take my challenge or money.

Yep they like to pitch sticks at what they cannot explain or replicate to promte the cult.

But I am the worst thing the JREF ever had to deal with
a person exposing them and him.

But they have to wonder why Randi has not exposed me or taken my challenge that is beyond fair.

Well Randi probably doesn't need your money and at his age, money isn't the most important thing anymore.

He does not want to play by someone else's rules, only his own. He needs to be in control. There are several other challenges to him that he ignores as well, including one by John Benneth and another by Victor Zammit.

I know I'm late to this thread, but welcome Jim Callahan!

I recall that clip where you accurately got the item in the box correct (where you were blind to it's contents before the show, where it was locked and guarded the whole time), then Criss Angel got very unnecessarily rude (making fun of the way you channeled), and then used the "raise the bar" / "move the goal post" tactic, where, rather than being impressed getting the object inside correct (single blind), asked you to get something else correct. (Even if you had agreed and gotten his next thing correct, he'd probably have still not been impressed, and would have asked for something else, then something else, then something else, etc, until finally he'd probably have just called fraud on everything, and suggest there must still be a trick to it, or it's all just lucky guesses.)

Criss Angel comes across as a Dogmatist. He states outright and directly that the Paranormal and Psychic Ability does not exist, case closed, end of story. He won't even consider the remote possibility, which makes him no different than a close-minded Southern Baptist Pastor raving that everything except his way of thinking is totally false and of the devil.

I find it odd how Criss Angel at times mentions "God" as though he believes in a God, sometimes even saying "God Bless", etc. So, it's okay for him to believe in a supernatural all-powerful creator entity, but the idea of Paranormal Phenomenon is just crazy? Durrr Hurrr.

I found it impressive that you got the object in the box right, and in detail (metal, rectangle shaped, and four wheeled.)

Exactly. Plus Criss Angel said that anything a psychic does has already been duplicated by a magician. That is BS and factually incorrect and sounds like typical brainwashing by Randi.

Yeah Criss was rude. But Jim, were you going to punch him or something? What would you have done if both of you weren't restrained? You are obviously much bigger than Criss and he would have been no match for your physically. And plus you appear far more fit than he does too. So in a sense, Criss was lucky that both of you were restrained. But you should only use violence as a last resort. Truly strong people have inner strength as well as outer. You should focus on the inner as well.

Hey Jim, glad to see you here. I've wondered if that confrontation with Chriss was a set up or not.
I never got a clear response from Uri about whether or not he had demonstrated PK to Angel, and if not, why not? Ten years ago I also applied to Randi for a test . . of homeopathy, which he dodged, as usual. I've offered a similar award to his for proof that his offer is valid, after which he announced he's ending the Million Dollar Challenge. He can't legally test anyone under past or current terms.
Are you currently performing anywhere?

Yep, he performs on a daily basis on forums like themagiccafe.com and debunkingskeptics.com

Well you pretty well nailed my opinion of Criss.

There is a bit more but we can leave that for another time I think.

My guys helped me prepare for it.

Criss did not know it was going to happen however.
From what I understand he was shaken by things not going as he had planned.
(Guess he thought I would put up with his BS like the people who work with him).

I think he was also taken aback that I accepted his challenge through the producers of the show.
My exact words to them were
"You tell Angel to bring his million and I will bring a courier to take it to the bank because I will take it off of him on live TV and ruin his career".

Turns out Criss never proved he even had the cash.
For that reason I refused to perform again for free on the show.
Personally I don't think he ever did have a million in cash to put up.

You will also notice he never opened the other envelope.
I had set into motion the verification of what was in the second envelope and if he had
opened it on his show the legal circus would have opened for business.
(I think he was advised to stay away from me and not open the envelope).

Well that is the breif answer to your question.

Best Wishes,

Jim

First let me say Criss is in good shape.
Though I think he was on something whenever I saw him.
Just my opinion of course.

However I had no intention of hitting him.
No real reason to he did what we expected him to do.

Best Wishes,

Jim

pretty sure he has that million, why does he needs to proove he has it? he has a 100million contract with the luxor and i dont know how many more he won with that bestselling book and his AE show... i dont know why would you go there
but what you said that it is true, not that it matters, you wouldnt have guess it anyway.. thats why you went into that rant.
is that he never opened the 2nd envelope. (he said he was going to open it on his mindfreak season 4/or 5?)
and to be honest the 1st envelope also wasnt opened right there at that time, it was opened at the final episode
both envelopes could have been switched at any time.. so i guess there was no interest
to be honest i would have Guess he had a mirror on the 1st envelope cause of his ego..
however
you didnt even want to take the challenge, you didnt know about the challenge before hand
so stop saying you wanted to take the challenge of criss.. you didnt
is just another one of your lies

also you didnt refuse to perform again.. you were kick out of the program after this performance
[youtube] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kAdZcbfiGY [/youtube]

jimmy, i dont like criss because he uses stooges and tv editing to perform magic
i respect what you did on national LIVE tv i think it was an interesting performance im pretty sure on studio it looked really great, but you, luke jermay, banachek and many mentalists know what you did isnt psychic... you arent the real deal... what you have is an act
and it isnt supernatural at all.
