James Randi

Who is James Randi?

Biography*

JamesRandi_300pxJames Randi has an international reputation as a magician and escape artist, but today he is best known as the world’s most tireless investigator and demystifier of paranormal and pseudoscientific claims.

Randi has pursued “psychic” spoonbenders, exposed the dirty tricks of faith healers, investigated homeopathic water “with a memory,” and generally been a thorn in the sides of those who try to pull the wool over the public’s eyes in the name of the supernatural.

He has received numerous awards and recognitions, including a Fellowship from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in 1986.

On October 19, 1993, the PBS-TV “NOVA” program broadcast a one-hour special dealing with Randi’s life work, particularly with his investigations of Uri Geller and various occult and healing claims being made by scientists in Russia.

He is the author of numerous books, including The Truth About Uri Geller, The Faith Healers, Flim-Flam!, and An Encyclopedia of Claims, Frauds, and Hoaxes of the Occult and Supernatural. His lectures and television appearances have delighted — and vexed — audiences around the world.

In 1996, the James Randi Education Foundation was established to further Randi’s work. Randi’s long-standing challenge to psychics now stands as a $1,000,000 prize administered by the Foundation. It remains unclaimed.

  1. Unexplained Mystery Explained.

    Aleister Crowley was a satanist, a drug addict and bisexual.
    Crowleys’ followers included Jack Parsons of NASA. Parsons
    mentored L.Ron Hubbard who founded the sinister Church of Scientology.
    Hubbards’ followers include Duncan Michael Roads, editor of
    Nexus magazine which publishes every kind of UFO / alien
    conspiracy theory which Roads blames on ‘the Jews’.
    Crowleys’ ‘spirit guide’ was named LAM, or LAL, and looked’ like a small grey alien as described in Nexus UFO myths.
    My question is this: If Crowley was under the control of the little grey aliens, then it stands to reason Hubbard and Roads are also under the control of ‘evil aliens’ who
    want us to believe the UFO mythology published in Nexus is
    a ‘Jewish NWO’.

    Why?

    Who benefits financially from these satanic UFO lies?
    Who benefits status-wise from these satanic UFO lies?
    Who benefits in terms of credibility from these satanic UFO lies?

    Who else but the Church of Scientologys’ NWO power grab, the same “Jewish NWO” Nexus accuses OTHERS of attempting? Scientology is ‘projecting’ its’ own evil intentions on
    innocent people, thereby deflecting all negative attention away from the real satanic/Scientologist NWO plot onto the fake Jewish NWO “plot”.

    This theory explains all observations made of Nexus.
    It explains the motivation of Hubbard/Roads/Scientology.
    It explains every ‘conspiracy’ theory published in Nexus.
    It explains the motives and methodology of ‘the aliens’
    with whom Scientology and Roads are in league with.

    The Church of Scientology is a ‘front’ for the satanic NWO which uses the alleged “Jewish NWO” as a smokescreen to hide its’ real intentions.

    • That’s a funny one actually, lots of people believe that for some reason or another, it’s a theory that was probably made popular by one person, but I first heard of it on Art Bell’s Coast To Coast AM program a long time ago. For some reason a lot of nutters think that UFOs and Satan are one in the same.
