The LA-based group is offering a large cash sum to anyone who can perform paranormal abilities under scientific test conditions.
There have been quite a few paranormal challenges over the years, with the James Randi Educational Foundation's $1 million challenge for proof of psychic abilities being perhaps the most prolific.
One such challenge that remains ongoing is the CFIIG (Center for Inquiry Investigations Group ) Paranormal Challenge which is offering $500,000 to anyone who can "demonstrate any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power under scientific test conditions."
Based in Los Angeles, the CFIIG aims to "spread a plague of skepticism across the world" and approaches its work "from the perspective of science-based skepticism."
According to the group's website, applicants will need to be able to perform their ability reliably on demand and can do so either online or by meeting up with one of the group's representatives in person.
"CFIIG will work with applicants to design the test protocol and define the conditions under which the test will take place," the website states.
"In most cases, the applicant will be asked to perform an informal demonstration of the claimed ability or phenomenon; if the demonstration is successful, it will be followed by a formal test, which will be administered by CFIIG representatives."
There is even a prize of $5,000 to anyone who refers a winning applicant to the group.
