WHy couldnt you state what your paranormal claim is? Or write a correct protocol? Seems an easy thing to do.

Shall I add this to the Professors proof thread? So you can avoid answering it?

Point 2.4 of the Challenge FAQ on the JREF website.

http://www.randi.org/site/index.php/1m- ... e-faq.html

2.4 Why do you reject claims that might cause injury?

Because the JREF doesn’t want anyone to get hurt or die, for both legal and humanitarian reasons. The JREF will not condone or support any claim where injury may occur. We don’t even want you to try it at home first.

For example, if you claim you can jump off a ten story building and survive, the JREF is not going to test you at it because people jumping off buildings doesn’t normally end well.

i think this one is for the better
What if Kolodzey die? what if his health gets really bad?
this claim is without doubt a really risky one for the participant and for randi because if somethings happens to kolodzey, randi is to blaim

there´s still a lot of psychic, paranormal and weird stuff to proof out there
without killing yourself

Since the rules of the MDC clearly state that dangerous feats such as the one Mr Zolodzey wanted to try are not eligible, I think we can all agree that a video saying that James Randi 'ran away' from this challenger is not a fair characterization.

Some people seem to believe that any ability and any person is eligible to participate in the MDC and they are quick to cry foul when they see someone disqualified. Simply reading the official rules will help clear up this type of misunderstanding.

The Professor can't read. Hell everything he writes is given to him by Jim Callahan.

"a million reasons not to test.."
Another dumb statement. Do you think if Randi/JREF had someone win they would lose their money? Certainly they would lose A million,but make a lot more in return from TV,books ,lectures etc. The organization that proved paranormal! Huge fame and money.

Try using that thing in your skull a bit more. :D

This is the first time I've watched the Video and am very skeptical myself about living on water alone, Yet if the claimant was to lose a great deal of weight , then the claimant loses the TEST. But if the man can sustain his weight control for unusually longer periods than is what is thought ( Scientifically Thought ) , then payout the MONEY JAMES!!!!
Randi was no researcher of the paranormal even though he tried half heartedly.... Shows over.
