Ciscop - I'd love to hear more about mentalism or whatever it's called. Would you like to start a topic for us and give us the highlights?

I watched the video ciscop posted. Great video quality and lighting ... and the dinner atmosphere is very scientific.




"That's what he is doing .. I believe .. from my position as expertise .. He is peeking"

"But there is another significant thing in this cut .. play it through"

Video restarts

"He's looking straight towards her now"

Video shows different angle:

"Now he's turned away. He's turned away at this position (camera angle)"




Um ... the camera angle changed, not Uri.

What was Randi thinking when he choose this video to debunk? That he'd choose the most distracting circumstances, poor lighting, poor quality video, jarring camera cuts, confusing context, difficult perspectives? Because I'm pretty sure clearer videos exist of this trick.

No ProfWag.
The question was answered for you and you didn't like it.

Randi has not seen a Ghost and therefore believes he can manipulate ''ALL OTHER '' people who have never seen a Ghost,and you fall into Randi's puppy dog kennel.

Let me tell you how it is.You haven't seen a Ghost. So why do you tell other people that they haven't seen a Ghost? Your OWN WORDS THAT SPUE FROM YOUR MOUTH continue to say ''where's the validity''?

People tell other people of their encounters and you ''dismiss it''........... You ProfWag are calling people LIARS in an unfair manner. You have yet to see a Ghost.... so stopping crying for awhile and let people alone :D

The Scooby Doo Show was all based on young university style people (cartoon) who could scientifically solve that Ghosts and Magic was only ''trickery and suspicion'' used to scare people into submission.






ProfWag and Ciscop,this is not the Scooby Doo Show , so please refrain from imitating them. ...turn off the TV :D
Randi was no researcher of the paranormal even though he tried half heartedly.... Shows over.

Yeah, that's a lot clearer.

But here's one I like that contains many camera cuts, edits, camera angles .. so it might blow James Randi's mind with all the camera jumps.

Look! Uri moved and is peeking at the woman's drawing that is facing her and not visible to him.


Oh wait .. it was just Camera 2.


My bad.





Things I've learned about Uri Geller from skeptics:





Uri Geller is spying on everything everyone does.

He's peeking everywhere.

He's peeping in key holes and looking thru door cracks.

He's watching us changing our underwear and stuff.

He's really sneaky.

No .. really, really sneaky.
