Victor speaks correctly about to whom is the proof self evident.

Randi would probably be like a chimp holding onto the banana with a clenched fist,he will never let go even when the leopard is upon him.

¨the chimp¨ is only asking for one guy to prove he can do what he says he can do..
but because there´s no such thing as the paranormal.. the chimp will keep eating his banana riding the leopard laughing at people´s beliefs

Havent been in in a long time,a thread on JREF peaked my curiosity again. All red now eh?

Anyway I see Craig Browning still whining on withhis baselss claims about psychics being real. ***removed, please do not make unnecessary cruel remarks about other members here***


All it takes is one person. Just ONE with psychic/paranormal abilities to make Randi looka fool. For someone with true abilities it wouldnt be hard.
No-one ever does and I dont think ever will. :lol:

I'm a skeptic and have my share of disagreements with Craig. This comment goes beyond the pale and is ban worthy. You give skeptics a bad name.

This is truely attrocious.

It has nothing to due with being a critical thinker. It has everything to do with being a terrible person.

Next time feel free to stay away even longer...as in forever. Asuming you don't get banned for that remark, which you should.

Your comment about Craig is such poor taste.What made you say such a thing?Are you having a bad day. Maybe an apology would smooth it over.

Excus eme but there is a post on this forum where Craig calls James Randi a "Pervert" is that not as bad? After all an insult is an insult no matter what. In fact its slander.

I was testing out a theory that the board is biased when handing out its warnings.

Randi is not here and he doesn't give a rat's ass what you say about him. Craig is here. What you say about him can make him feel bad. It is rude and brings bad vibes here too. And it's unecessary and uncalled for. I already sent you a warning. Don't do that again. You can learn to disagree without using such low remarks.

So slander/libel is fine on the board then so long as they aren't a member? Ok thanks for that info.

No Azaeal, slander/libel is NOT fine on this forum. If you see a post that you feel is inappropriate, please bring it to the attention of a Moderator.

I've called Craig out when he's said those things about randi, but its not a great way to test a double standard, just report him and call the mods out if they don't respond!
