Azrael writes of George Anderson: "Not heard of him but unless he has been double blind scientificly [sic] tested he is a fraud." Wrong. If he has not been double-blind scientifically tested, that only means his alleged ablities have not been proven to be real; that does not prove that he is a fraud. Only testing can prove if his abilities are real or if he is a fraud.

Randi says he only responds to people who make responsible paranormal claims .

So what is a responsible paranormal claim that Randi perceives as possible?
Randi was no researcher of the paranormal even though he tried half heartedly.... Shows over.

Here's a new challenge, quite interesting. Eddie Benitez is a true believer, and his challenge is with spiritual criteria, to sift out the truly gifted from the charlatans. This challenge has caused an uproar over on JREF forum!

See this article: $50,000 challenge issued to psychics, mediums and ghost hunters to prove spirit communication

The JREF forum that picked up on the article I posted previously have gone crazy with it. They are like a pack of hyenas attacking.

Now there's a follow up article, and it's unbelievable. Jeff Wagg of JREF actually posted private emails between the author, Benitez and himself, after banning the author from posting in their thread. A thread ABOUT the article, and Benitez.

See the new article: Mad scientists: James ("Amazing") Randi's organization in furor over alternative psychic challenge

well people - i noted in victor zammit's Friday report that there will be a spirit guide available to Randi when he does finally pass over , who has offered to work with James to be able to send a message back saying he was wrong ( should he wish to of course ) ;)

( mind you i ain't taking any bets on that happening , but as they say "stranger things have happened at sea " :lol: :lol: )

if you wish to read or receive by email any of these reports - go here : http://www.victorzammit.com/archives/index.html and for those skeptics who are not too firmly entrenched in their own dogma - it is quite an interesting site to visit - just as some of us believers find the jref site interesting too ( tho for some what different reasons ;) )
