The problem with Canadian psychic debunker Amazing Randi, is that he's never
met a phenomena he ever liked. With Uri Geller he could reproduce some of the
results like spoon bending, though not in quite the same fashion. I believe
that when Amazing (I believe it would be ok if I called him by his first
name) is debunking psychic crapolla he is doing us a favor. When he passes
judgment on people's philosophies; he moves from skeptic to cynic. In my
opinion cynicism is a philosophy unto itself, and one that I try to resist

<< [I must say - don't beat me, please! - that about 20 years ago I tried
 to stop my japanese watch, mechanical, auto-loading,
 by means of thought, or mind.
 The watch immediately stopped for 5 seconds.
 The pointer was in a strange small vibrational state.
 I was terrified. I never repeated that *experiment*.
 So that experiment was *not* a scientific experiment.
 After that: I still do not like the *paranormal*....
 and the amazing James Randi!]
