you have seen the videos of him cheating yet your cogntive dissonance or your lack of intelligence blocks you from the truth... i think that amazes me more than anything uri did..
is like you manage to see yet you do not understand what you see.. is kind of interesting
I have seen the videos. And you know, people are more sophisticated nowdays then in Randi's day. Almost every piece of evidence that I've seen or read about skeptics debunking psychics and paranormals wouldn't pass legal standards of proof, much less scientific standards of proof. With the preponderance of cop shows, lawyer shows, science shows .. and the internet, people are more savy as to what those standards of proof are.
Skeptics Dr. David Marks and Dr. Richard Kammann claimed they:
"found evidence that while at SRI, Geller was allowed to peek through a hole in the laboratory wall separating Geller from the drawings he was being invited to reproduce. The drawings he was asked to reproduce were placed on a wall opposite the peep hole which the investigators Targ and Puthoff had stuffed with cotton gauze."
But where is the evidence to ANY of this?
And why is Uri Geller peeping thru a hole in the wall that's filled with cotton? Does Uri have X-ray vision too? I SEE YOU!
In my show i reproduce drawings wraped inside a sheet of aluminium stuffed in an envelope which i never touch
i dont touch the envelopes and the drawings are made in a separate room, i dont need a peep hole
yet i can reproduce the drawings. i can think of at least 5 ways of doing it without needing peeping hole.
I dont feel i am better than anybody
i just know how to accomplish many things that appear psychic but they are not
if you my dear tonto, want to believe tricks of a magician thats ok
thats just is proof of your lack of intelligence
that uri did some tricks to a couple of believers
russell and targ. doesnt mean he was for real
it just mean he was able to fool a couple of scientists, not the WHOLE scientist community
go look around
there is a reason why uri doesnt want to be called psychic anymore
now he is a mystifier
hahaha what a pathetic joke
For every person who reads this valuable book there are hundreds of naïve souls who would prefer to have their spines tingled by a sensational but worthless potboiler by some hack journalist of the paranormal. You who now read these sentences join a small but wiser minority. Martin Gaardner (Psychology of the Psychic)
