An experiment performed in public with 2,187 to 1 ODDS has shown that the JREF MDC would have been beaten by a combination of Paranormal Divination methods.

viewtopic.php?f=19&t=944

This was part of The Divination Project.

The Pseudo-Skeptics are in TOTAL DENIAL of the facts !!!!!

The prediction made and published BEFORE the game !!!!

This is the claim. Is it true? Clearly not.

The odds reported here are the payoff odds. These are not the odds that would be used by the JREF MDC. The JREF MDC uses odds that predict the chance of this happening based on chance. That is quite different from payoff odds.

Continuing to proclaim this despite the knowledge that this compares apples and oranges is making this look more and more like an orchestrated fraud.

So the professor is back to claim his odds whatever claim.

No matter how many times the professor claims his odds are important the fact is that his odds still fall at the flip of a coin, 1:1.

The professor continues to boast that he was able to make a prediction that had even odds. So unimpressive professor, so unimpressive.

For all those tuning in, here is what the professor did.

1. He pulled out some old thing-a-ma-jig called thought dialing.
2. Then he got a bunch of friends together.
3. At this point no one has any idea what happened because the professor has hidden the truth of the so-called experiment.
4. His group picks a team.
5. He posts odds that told us how much his team would have made had they actually done some betting on the game. Well, actually he tells us how much he would have made had there been a bunch of games to bet on.
6. So not knowing what was calculated by a mathematician the professor has been running around claims that somehow these odds are important and are comparable to odds used over at JREF.

What actually happened was a bunch of people got together and chose a team for a game. Two teams to choose from and the odds to win are 50-50 or 1:1. That's flipping a coin. All people had to agree or this so-called experiment would have been a flop.

So now the professor is looking foolish. Next time learn what odds mean. Next time answer questions instead of hiding the truth. That way you won't make the same mistakes the next time.

Seems a certain fat alcholic is on the ropes! Anyway here is a link whcih shows Slim King/The PRofessor beaten into submission with sheer logic. Coincidentally same question asked by Nostradamus here. WHich he STILL cannot answer. Embarassing is now a byword for Dave Koneig.

Seems that this fat alcoholic is having a problem remembering who he asked for math help.

That's a funny read. The professor was too sporadic here to get a laugh. I noticed over there that he claims that the question was posed to someone at BU. I thought he posed his question to a Texan. I'll check into that.

It seems that Magic Talk is being shut down. The place was sold. I wonder if that means the professor will spend more time over here.

Unlikely, the moderators called time on his propaganda re: Randi tapes and he cant answer questions re: thought dial so my guess is he's finished! :lol:

No that he ever began.

just a question
do you believe the professor does actually believe he is fooling somebody or is he really fooling himself?

at first i thought the first (since he says he is a magician).. but after reading so many of his posts i think is the last one
