God bless James Randi! I have been a fan of his since I first saw him on Johnny Carson and David Letterman's shows back in the late 80's. His books are the height of hilarity and right on the money especially where it concerns these Televangilists and so-called Psychics. The Faith Healers is recommended reading by yours truly. I have to check out more of his stuff. Just so little time...

I find the motor that may actually MAKE energy as opposed to depleting it even more fascinating on the site you gave...

I'm not sure if I believe in psychic abilities or not.
But I like keeping an open mind on everything.

The things that make me wonder is.
1. If you are a believer then no amount of evidence to the contrary will make any difference.
The same goes for a non-believer.
No amount of evidence will change someones mind if they are not willing to keep an open mind.
It seems to me from what I have read that James Randi has already made up his mind on the subject.

2. Why would someone open themselves to ridicule to try to prove something to anyone else.

You must not be familiar with Baptist fundamentalists, George W. Bush, Paris Hilton, Jehovah's Witnesses, Flaming Homosexuals, Oral Roberts, The Lifetime Movie Channel, Don King, Geraldo Rivera, Reality TV...
