Why won't Randi take the LDT? Because Randi is a smart trickster.........


if you were any smarter
you would know LDT are bunk

just by pressing your annus and realeasing the pressure
you cant destroy the LDT
by you doing this, the data wouldnt get you anything

that simple...
but since you dont know anything about anything
you think ldts are actually real machines..

no
you shouldnt take ANYBODY´s word as truth
thats the whole point of skepticism

never take randi´s word, jesus christ´s word or me as face value

always use critical thinking

to the debunker (don't like to call them skeptics) who insists people can beat lie detector tests by squeezing their sphincter muscles - perhaps you read this on some wikipedia page, but you're wrong. Polygraph experts have known for years that people try this, and have a number of methods for dealing with it.

Wrong again, Watson!
