There Is A Reward Of $1,000,000 For Anyone Who Can Prove The Existence Of Ghosts.


Ten years ago a strange claim has been made by James Randi, he offered a prize of “one million dollars” to anyone who can show any of paranormal supernatural, or occult power activity under proper observing conditions.

Wow I bet if ghosts had need for money they'd be all over this one.

Randi is offering the money for anyone that can prove anything paranormal. This is old news... In my opinion there is also a very good reason why nobody has cashed in on the million after all these years.

Its all a bunch of nonsense. It doesnt exist.

Now that communications technology has made it possible to give global reach to the bizarre and archive it forever, it is essential for men and women of reason resolutely to counter the delusions of the fringe element. James S. Robbins

These kind of contest a typical of the skeptic communities. In my opinion, whatever proofs you've got they'll find a way to dismiss it for various reasons. That's why no one take this very seriously.

The problem with this is that these 'scientist' or skeptics have already made up mind their about it and deem the paranormal as fraud and nonsense. Therefore one who try to prove them wrong and emptying their bank account of Randi's skeptic community will have a hard time to to do so. Their is no objectivity whatsoever.

Here is a book by Robert McLuhan I should want to read about it: http://www.amazon.co...s/dp/1848764944

Anyway, to me a phenomenon which prove itself elusive to our understanding and technological tools doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. Many people's experience are very real to them. Physics, brain science and the quest to understand cousciousness are still very much a work in progress and our understanding is limited. The fact is, the paranormal communities (on which you seem fond to participate even though you do not believe any of this) around the world are as much alive as they can possibly be. It is not baseless. :)

You just hit the nail on the head..... Lots of people believe in the paranormal, but in no way does that meen its real. Or vice versa.

But the thing is, for the rest of us, its going to take more that opinions and tall tales to buy any of these phenomenon, ESP, EVP, NDE,  UFOs, Ghosts, etc, etc.... Its going to take hard data that can be examined by real scientist, peer review and all that.

Until then, the paranormal is and will always be science fiction.

That's a valid point of view which I respect but I do not share it.

May I point out that because we do not understand a phenomenon and can only capture fragment of it, it doesn't mean that it's not real. You may not give credit to the accounts of credible person, that's your choice, but they are of great worth because they experienced it and are able in many cases to accuretly describe it.

Except that Science-fiction is experienced through books and movies not in people's life. It doesn't take life of it's own.

But that's anecdotal evidence at best, and aren't exactly helpful in a scientific sense

I think that psychology is a very important step in order to understand these phenomenon that are experienced. Psychology is a method to analyse the Human mind and it can be done in a scientific way. Human experiences, as we live them are crucial to have a better understanding of our behavior and that's quite relevant to the study of the Paranormal.

Of course, Physics, brain science and neuroscience for exemple are fields which might bring answers in the futur to various phenomenon experienced. But we need to have a better grasp on many subject which these science have not been able to answer so far. Why the Universe/Multiverses exist? Is there life after death? What is true nature of couscioussness? ect. All of these and much more are still very open debate.

Usually brain falls out (when too open, and lack of critical thinking), leaving vacuum between the ears.

Arguing with fool is like playing chess with pigeon: he will scatter pieces, peck King's crown, crap on bishop, and fly away bragging how he won the game... (heard once, author unknown).
Zhoom! What was that? That was your life, Mate! Oh, that was quick. Do I get another? Sorry, Mate. That's your lot... Basil Fawlty (John Cleese).

James Randi has flown people to his organization for free. Also he does record it but HE DOES not have a TV station.

Yes, He making fun of people with claims while risking 1mill... If proof is every where then SHOW US THIS SO CALLED PROOF!

Edited by Brian Topp, 26 August 2013 - 02:09 AM.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route to find out what really happened.

The only proof you'll ever have are your own experiences.
