News: Fake psychic powers and debunk Uri Gellar

Fake psychic powers and debunk Uri Gellar

I have never before showcased a tutorial from television. Until now. This one has a personal resonance for me.

It is Sunday. So, sit back and learn a little something today.

The life long and methodical debunking tutorials from the Amazing Randi have earned him a reputation as provocateur.

I love magic. I love mentalism. And years ago, I paid Uri Geller to see if he could truly read minds. We sat in two rooms at the New York Plaza Hotel. I was as careful as Johnny Carson was about preventing any possible cheats. Uri never broke "character". He relentlessly claimed to have special powers. He did not impress.

In this video, James (The Amazing) Randi speaks on spoon/key bending and hidden picture reproduction. He reveals the possible tricks pulled by Uri Geller to show he had psychic powers.

Welcome to the controversial world of magic, mentalism, and professional debunkers.

Awesome! I remember seeing that Tonight Show interview a long time ago. Uri looked like a deer in headlights!

fascinating... if only that level of existential control was real

cool vid really liked it

Why is it that these people who claim to be rational people that are out to "help" the people who believe these things never use their time and extraordinary reason to blow apart the lies that we are fed by people who are truly dangerous...such as those in the government.

Yes, please Mr. Rational Reasonman, tell me how Uri Gellar isn't bending spoons but whatever you do, do NOT show me how a building can fall at free fall speed without explosives, or how a paper passport can be found in the rubble of 80 story buildings that just collapsed when no human remains were even found.

People like this fellow make me as sick as those who claim to have magic powers.


there is no spoon
