Randi was no researcher of the paranormal even though he tried half heartedly.... Shows over.

Is this website a forum to trash Randi and the JREF or is this a serious forum that seeks clarification concerning skeptical analysis as is the title of the website? There are so many more posts towards the million dollar challenge than there are serious discussions on the paranormal that it's ridiculous.
I just don't understand it.
Bottom line, if someone wants to think there is fraud in the JREF, then fine. Grab you a lawyer and go prove it or quite worrying about it. Otherwise, if you're not satisfied with his rules, then apply to show your paranormal abilities in one of the other dozen or so paranormal challenges that are out there. Don't worry about the money. If you win one of those other prizes, you'll become wealthy beyond your wildest dreams.
Now, how about some serious discussion on UFOs, psychics, or anything else that's really cool and a heck of a lot more fun to talk about.

For every person who reads this valuable book there are hundreds of naïve souls who would prefer to have their spines tingled by a sensational but worthless potboiler by some hack journalist of the paranormal.

I may be new here, but having read this thread from start to finish it seems that it has become pointless and destructive, the horse died a few pages ago guys.
There are far more interesting subjects than this to discuss. Only Randi knows what he is or isnt willing to do so it really is a moot point to speculate on.

If someone thinks that they can beat the challenge they are free to try, and just as free not to if they dont like it, just as everyone, and i mean everyone, is entitled to their own opinions and the right to voice those opinions.

Profwag,Brett,Ninja Puppy,Ciscop, add my ditto to yours

Now...*rubs hands* lets get into some more substantial discussions :D

To opposers of general skepticism.

This site allows people to discuss Randi's MDC without being told how to think.

The Professor was banned off JREF for what? was the Professor hitting a ''raw nerve'' with Jeff Wagg ?

At least on this site here, One can be Skeptical in the more open unhinderd true sensible manner, which is greatly lacking on other sites that refer to themselves as being seekers of the truth.

general zod opined :"If you would still prefer to drug and interrogate an old man than demonstrate your own abilities, then I really don't know what else to say. "

oh i have no wish to drug and interrogate an old man - he is not THAT important in the scheme of things anyway - and i don't claim to have ANY paranormal powers - so the test is irrelevant to me - what i just don't understand is WHY this whole issue is soooooooooooo important ( seemingly ) to so many people ??

it seems to have obtained the status of an "obsession" with some here - surly there are more important and wider issues at hand ?? :?

If Randi wants someone to win the prize then he can pass the money over to an independent group of Scienctists and let them carry out experiments within a designated TIME FRAME , or Randi can keep running his competition providing he sits the LDT.

Does Randi want real magic or poop magic ?.
