It would have been AWESOME if the guy suddenly turned red and collapsed, and then 30 secongs later gotten up saying "nah... just fucking with you."
After reading the article, I must say, major props to Sanal Edamaruku. Definitely the bullshido.net of religious debunking. The crap the poor guy probably has to deal with pales even the most hardened Ashida Kim and Matt Mortons, especially considering that those frauds are vehemently defended by entire provinces of gullible farmers and laborers.
Sucks to be the one to tell them that their Glorious Leader is a fraud.

laughing at magic nullifies it immediately. nobody told the 'victim,' i guess.
on the other hand, sitting and laughing while someone is making an earnest, if completely delusional, effort to kill you takes some balls. i think i woulda punched the old fucker.

That guy will die alright, they just didn't give it enough time. I give 10:1 odds that Sandal Edamaraku will be dead by 2050.

This guy is awesome. I wish we could get Mtripp to dish about more parlor tricks.

Can that guy be our new mascot? He's against bullshit, and I bet his php/asp/actionscript skills are top notch.

can anyone translate the guru's response? i really would love to hear how he rationalizes it.

I thought it was funny that the skeptic just stood there looking bored. Also, how long is it supposed to take to kill someone with your mind? I mean the guy could have fabricated a gun from scratch and killed him faster than this! If you like how this guy debunks people on the tube, you'll dig James Randi. He has plenty of videos up on youtube now.
I also find it amusing when people here say "he's the bullshido of religion" or something similar. As if someone took the critical eye we use on martial arts and applied it somewhere else, almost as if a novelty. Perhaps you are unaware that the skeptic/rationalist/whatever movement is quite large and encompasses all areas of nonsense, including martial arts magic. In other words, bullshido.net is part of a much larger community, even if the members here don't realize it. :)

It would have taken even less time to dissolve arsenic in water, slpash the water on the guy, and go on with the ceremony performing mystical hand movements until the guy croaks.
