It wasn't 'refrigerated alien'. It was 'refrigerated 'Bob Lazar' !

"I can't tell you what I saw there. But use your imagination. What could they have been refrigerating?"

Hmmm, then I imagine that it was a hot day and that there was ice cream in the refrigerator :-) .

Like they are going to show that fraud anything important or classified, or even have him around for that matter - cool story bro, keep desperately trying to stay relevant in a world where nobody knows who you are anymore.

It's cute how he says he can't reveal what was in the fridge, but can talk all about crashed UFO materials and whatnot. So legit.

And he can perform telekenisis in front of sophisticated observers and you wouldn't believe.

Edgar Mitchell was a believer in Uri's abilities. From the article:

"He said he heard about my powers and told me that if he took his wedding ring off his finger and put it in the palm of his hand and I'd be able to bend it while it's there, he'd believe me," Geller told The Jerusalem Post.

"And I did - completely."

 

I know you can call it a lie BUT: Would you buy in if that happened to you?

Right, so all Edgar Mitchell would have to do is say Uri Geller is selling the Brooklyn bridge and you'd believe it?

Uri Geller is an illusionist turned charlatan.  He now pretends he has powers that he's been faking for entertainment.

"Uri bent a spoon for me, the first time he did it, I thought there must be a trick. The second time I was stunned, completely, completely stunned and amazed. It just bent in my hand. I've never seen anything like it. It takes a lot to impress me. Uri Geller is for real and anyone who doesn't recognise that is either deluding himself, or is a very sad person."
David Blain, (American Magician. Star of ABC's Television Specials.)

It takes more than one individual's experience before I am impressed strongly.

I would have my skeptical questions about that bridge deal too.

The scariest thing about this is Uri working at NASA in any capacity.

And yet he couldn't do it for James Randi.

So why are you parroting anecdotes?

I don’t know that Uri ever tried.

My leading theory is that Randi knew Geller had real mysterious abilities and that is why he hated him so much and avoided a showdown.

Because considering a body of anecdotes from all sides is one way to advance our understanding of reality.

When in reality Randi knew Geller was an illusionist and employed ways to counter his tricks, but hey what ever keeps your confirmation bias alive.

Yet only quotes anecdotes that defends a trickster.

It is up to each to judge honest appraisal of a whole case versus confirmation bias.

Quotes are chosen to best address the point in hand, like is always done.

He was probably brought in for back up.  If modern weapons failed, he could bend a spoon around their arms and restrain them.

I saw a documentary about someone who really could do that!  I think his name was... Ludvik? Derek? Eric!  Eric Someone.  And his stage name was "Eric the Last Spoonbender".  Or something snappier like Metalo, AlloyMan or The Great Bender.

Is Geller an illusionist, an entertainer, or an unscrupulous, shameless fraud?  We can rule out the second option: pretending to bend spoons doesn't entertain me.  So which of the other two?  To be honest it doesn't affect me, so I'll keep to myself my opinions of this unscrupulous, shameless fraud.  Suffice it to say he does not have special abilities like telekinesis, telepathy, telemetalbenderitis or any other relevant super power.
