How's it feel to have a leader that has been proven a LIAR so many times?


I don't consider James Randi my leader. This is another fine example of the kind of narrow minded behavior still demonstrated by religious fundamentalists like The Professor. In his world, he needs someone to tell him what to do. However skeptics and atheists are whats known as "free-thinkers" - which means we think for ourselves, and don't wait for someone else to instruct us as to what our opinion should be.

You're a very sad man Dave.


Jim callahan is Dave's leader. :lol:
I'm always very skeptical of any situation where someone's notability hinges on their connection to another notable person

So you guys like to kiss randi's tail at the end daily all in a row like he is your boyfriend and your guilt is dripping in atheistic anticipation of the inevitable reward that the Master will give to the minions of the JREF.....

Guess it isn't the Kool Aid that you are drinking up by the gallons is it?

Seamer ... Are you really one of these guys?

Of all the people posting on this thread, no one is more fixated on Randi than yourself.

I don't know if I'm one of them. What are the factors that making me one of someone I'll try and project a word into there head and see if they get it if they do does that make me one.

I listen and read stuff from the JREF and post on tere forums does that make me one of them.

I think EVP is wishful thinking of proof of an afterlife from the evidence and controls I've seen people give/use.

I whitewater kayak and rock climb does that make me one of them.

I currently work as a software developer/web design.

I try not to lie but have been known to make mistakes and admit to them as Randi has done in this thread and I pointed out.

So what qualifies me as one of them.

To ciscop.

If one person can perform a notable paranormal ability , would you accept it without Scientific Recognition?.

The reason I ask you in this manner is because you are not a Scientist. And seeing that you are not a Scientist, then how can you accept what Scientist's agree on , when you are not ''qualified'' to accetane if the Scientists got it correct or incorrect. SURELY ONLY A SCIENTIST KNOWS WHAT A SCIENTIST IS TALKING ABOUT, eh ?

Randi has said that Scientists keep testing and retesting to see if what is established is true or not. So how can anyone ''PASS '' the preliminary test if the Scientists hold the right to keep testing and retesting a claimants ability or abilities. If the Scientists come across someone who can perform amazing feats, then how can Scientists say that it;s paranormal , if the Scientists can not give a '' Causation Explanation '' ?.
Randi was no researcher of the paranormal even though he tried half heartedly.... Shows over.

Let me help you ciscop. Awareness of the paranormal is how I and many other people know.

Have you ''ciscop'' ever been approached by a paranormal experience ? It doesn't make you wrong if you haven't had a paranormal encounter.

Because he's in poor health. But you already knew that.
