James Randi, Paranormal and pseudoscience investigator extraordinaire
James Randi first rose to fame as The Amazing Randi, performing magic and escapes in the tradition of Houdini. His background as a conjurer led to a second career as the world’s premier investigator of paranormal and pseudoscientific phenomena. Randi has appeared hundreds of time on network television and his investigations of medical frauds and purported psychics are legendary. The James Randi Educational Foundation offers a million dollar award to anyone who can produce paranormal phenomena under controlled conditions. This prize has yet to be claimed.
The symposium will be available via delayed webcast.
