The fact that those who think that he is dishonest cannot cite a recent example of dishonesty on his part. Yes. And when has Randi ever told the people to trust him?

And speaking of dishonest, when *are* we going to see that statue move of its own volition?


Randi's always telling people to trust him. Twice on Sunday's after BRUNCH


Yet another fact-free post from the entity who cannot explan why that statue *still* hasn't moved under *any volition, let alone its own.

And not just Randi. People like Derren Brown, Richard Wiseman and Banachek are other great examples of magicians who use their skills to investigate paranormal phenomenon and to promote science and skepticism.

Is this the Statue you are talking about..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vm2IkCkHGwc
Randi was no researcher of the paranormal even though he tried half heartedly.... Shows over.

Seems completely stationary to me, nor are its lips moving producing speech.

Those *were* your claims, weren't they?

Yes , I claimed the Statue would move in the future after I obatain certain qualities. So what does that have to do with this thread. Are you spamming or whinging ? Now how about you take Pyrrho's advice for once :mrgreen:

Neither, just pointing out you inability to answer straightforward questions about claims that you have made, and offering those claims as evidence of your delusional state. That is the same delusional state, IMO, that compels you to continually post lies.

The Library has been open for more than six months -- when are you going to be demonstrating that telekinesis? And what about your claims that certain passages in the Bible refer to you?

The milestone you offered was "shortly after" the Library opened.

What is your definition of "shortly after?"
