        This is not philosophy. This is reality. And how is he small minded?

        His is not a philosophical argument, nor is he a fundamentalist. Fundamentalism is a strict adherence to a religious minority belief. Clearly, James Randi is not a fundamentalist.

          Normally, I would not respond to such nonsense...and I am going to continue that policy.

          Your unsupported claims are not worth wasting a minute to refute.

            he expects 'reality' (whatever that is!) to conform to a materialistic framework and that there is nothing more to 'it' than that

            that is known as 'fundementalist materialism'

            the word fundementalist applies to anybody who belives strictly in the fundementals of ANY belief system

              Flummery....

              All Mr. Randi has ever done is say "prove it." When people make exceptional claims about powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men, he simply says "prove it."

              We have this wonderful system in place called "The scientific method" which works wonderfully well. The addition of someone who is aware of the ways of trickery, and can insure such methods are not used in the scientific testing, is critical.

              You sir may claim to have a purple dragon in your basement. I am not a bigot when I ask you to show it to me. If you refuse, my not accepting your story as truth is the logical conclusion of our time together.

              This is all Mr. Randi has done, and I applaud him for it.

                i should make it clear

                i also applaud mr randini for his work

                i once saw a documentry where there was a guy who believed he could communicate with preverbal children

                by some sort of telepathy

                and he took the randini challenge...........and failed

                undaunted the guy then got his brain scanned by MRI

                and low and behold something extra ordinary was happening in his brain

                anther case srpins to mind glossalia

                http://www.sciencedirect.com/science...b4a29f4063b345

                for years the scientific communitee has attempted to derail things it doesnt understand

                or due to narrow minded researcher beliving they have the only ay to test things

                but more and more the scientific old guard is having to listen to new break throughs

                randini (who i emphasise has my uttmost respect) is a showman playing at scientist

                another case was where he apparently debunked homeopathy

                and yet there is now accumulating SCIENTIFIC evidence that homeopathy is actually onto something previously undercovered by science

                http://www.garynull.com/documents/ar...c_research.htm

                randini has his own agenda that is all i am saying

                  More flummery...

                  The only agenda that Mr. Randi has is learning the truth. Your projections aside, that is the only thing that matters to him.

                  The real agenda, from Houdini's day to present, is to take the money from foolish people dunce enough to believe in silly things like horoscopes, witches, demons, and all manner of invisible friends they talk to.

                  Your attempt to claim the pseudo-science of homeopathy has any effect beyond sugar pills, using Gary Null as your source, is much the same as if you asked John Edwards his opinion of hearing from dead people.

                  Phui

                  I am waiting for a homeopathic muffler shop to open.....

                          How you got popeship I'll never know.

                          What are the conclusions of any of those studies, Mr. Pope? Furthermore, what were their measures? Where they double blind? Correlational? Biased?

                          Jesus Christ, Pope. Get it together.

                            and you call yourself king of the impossible?!?

                            maybe you should read the papers yourself and form an educated opinion rather than going with popular opinion?

                            I know its a crazy thought..........

                              You sir, are either a donkey or the perfect imitation of one.

                              Allow me to give the rest of the class everything they need to know about the subject, and the "tests" listed above.
