Who is Amazing Randi . . .
Hey Oni,
Often, if one knows about "the Amazing Randi," one also knows about the "Randi exposing Popoff incidence/scam." For those who don't know: Randi is a magician and debunker of paranormal claims. He was a favorite of Johnny Carson, many times a guest on the tonight show.
I liked his books "Flimflam" and "the Unmasking of Nastrodamus". I used to be a frequent reader of Randi's web site when it devoted most of its resources to scientific inquiries. Sadly, its current format and subjects are not as interesting. Seems to have removed the scientific experiments/challenges in favor for tabloid fluff.
But most importantly, . . .
. . . this is an opportunity for me to remind others of his continuing crusade against illogical/irrational thinking. Seems to me an excellent companion to EvC eh? Particularly, everyone here at EvC should know about his million dollar challenge to all paranormal claims (such as astrology, talking to dead, dowsing, religious miracles, etc). Unsurprisingly, the million dollar prize has never been in danger of being paid out.

The Million Dollar Challenge - JREF
"At JREF, we offer a one-million-dollar prize to anyone who can show, under proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power or event."
