Most of that is very old news, the first link is something that was first announced at least two years ago if I'm recalling things correctly. The ABC thing with Banachek. . . well, Steve did screw with scientist for a number of years (with Gerry McCambridge) doing the spoon & key bending, etc. at Randi's encouragement and got some big kudos in the skeptics world for doing so.

:idea: I've never thought to ask him if they got paid for their time during that project and if so, did they give the money back given that they deliberately hustled the researchers and doing such things and taking the cash is morally & ethically wrong. . . at least when it applies to most psychics that would be the case. :roll:

I'm always looking for material and solid arguments on Randi and his church however. In my mind if the soul of those that "lead" the pack is tainted then the whole thing is questionable at best.
