I never said I filled out an application. I simply started a thread on his website forum and inquired if this would be acceptable. The idea was soundly rejected by the management, which I find hilarious. I'm sure you can find the thread. He was afraid to take me up on it, and while I understand generally why, it still doesn't change the obvious clarity it brings to the table about his bravery when it comes to the paranormal, or arguably "normal" in my case. I disagree, as I would be willing to sign away the proceeds 100% to any charity of my choice, in advance ... End of that argument. The mon... [More]

I disagree, as I would be willing to sign away the proceeds 100% to any charity of my choice, in advance ... End of that argument. The money isn't the point, at all. The point is, he's afraid to do it, which underlines his fear of the paranormal, generally. There are many ways to nullify any perceived motive to harm, for example a purely anonymous winner, until say 25 years had passed, all sorts of things. Anonymous winner agreement until the winner died also. I can think of a multitude of ways to eliminate any perceived motive. His organization would simply have to admit that someone had done...

Why don't you just predict something else? Are your powers only limited to the date that a single man dies? The purpose of that proposal goes far beyond anything to do with me ... It's about how such information could be obtained, and why it would be given.As far as the official application process, if the idea is knocked down on the forum created for a discussion of the prize, then what's the point of wasting my time with fearful men?

As far as the official application process, if the idea is knocked down on the forum created for a discussion of the prize, then what's the point of wasting my time with fearful men? Because that is how you " apply " for the offer.....Hence " application ". If you did not go that route, do not try to state Randi will not accept your challenge, that is lying. A mod, or a member, on the PUBLIC forum said something negative about it and you claim th... [More]

At this point, I'd like to see a link to the thread as well.

If James Randi accidentally fell from the observation deck of the Empire State building, I would like to have a tape recording of what he says as he spirals down. Who would he call on for help? Himself? Nobody? God? Only when all hope in human power is extinguished, is the underlying truth of our belief in a Higher supernatural power, revealed. So it will be with all of humanity, and soon. The entire human population of earth is about to fall off the observation deck of the Empire State Building. Who we look to for help, will decide our Individual futures, but not the future of our civilizatio... [More]

So, I guess this means you have no link.....No evidence to support your tall tale. As i said, you are a liar. Personal attacks won't change the argument, because it's no longer about James Randi or his prize. It's about a world in denial of the spell of humanism, which teaches that the only thing normal are the endeavors of men. As for me, why concern yourself with my tiny voice? Who calls a mosquito a liar, but a man who is really afraid of something else? My application has already been written on the sky for all to see, and where truth is the prize.

I am " attacking " your reply and claim, not you. Until I see a link that you were denied a chance at that, from Randi and his team, then I say that claim is a lie. Anyone with the time to make over 10,000 posts here in the past four years, has plenty of time to reference what I've reported, without my help. Do you always jump to the conclusion that someone is a liar, simply because you're too lazy to ... [More]
