Science: Fish, Barrel, Gun...
On a whim I decided to take the Randi million dollar challenge. As a true skeptic I am skeptical of everything including professional skeptics. The test is bogus, Randi lies, he rejected my claim saying that I didn't want any photos taken, not true, I actually demanded that the whole process be video taped just incase I might need it as evidence to present to a jury if I had to sue to collect. He lied to his readers at his site saying I would not agree to a proper protocol, which translates "Randi wins at all costs", honesty is not in the equation...Bill Perron P.S.if you want the real truth anyone can call me at XXX-XXX-3697 or write firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's the page where Mr. Randi talks about the application, and there's a follow-up the next week. I added a small response of my own:
This is something that I've always wondered about horoscopes... There are "readers" who claim that they could not be completely accurate unless thay knew where every sinlge planet was at the instant of birth - well, then surely they could look at what the person was like and perhaps a few general events in their life (bankruptcy, perhaps, or being married three times) and determine something as vague as what day the subject was born on. Couldn't they?
Or is it, in the words of famed speaker to the dead John Edward, a case of "It doesn't work that way"?
