The Amazing Randi's One Million Dollar Pledge...


The Grand Design
by Stephen Hawking

"It is not necessary to invoke
God to light the blue touch
paper and set the universe


Best treatment of time travel in a movie ever, period.

Grand Jury Prize at 2004 Sundance Film Festival An unexpected result in a process for traveling back several hours in time. The men initially use these rewind sessions to succeed in the stock market. But a dark consequence of their daily journeys eventually complicates matters. If this sounds like a very commercial, science fiction thriller, Primer is anything but that. The film has a tantalizing, sealed-in logic, akin to Memento, that forces viewers to see the fantastic with a certain dispassion. One may be tempted to sit through Primer again to more fully understand its paradoxes and ethical quandaries. --Tom Keogh

ev·i·dence –noun

.  that which tends to prove or disprove something; ground for belief.

2. something that makes plain or clear; an indication or sign: His flushed look was visible evidence of his fever.

Folks, the reaction to the "2000 Club" suggestion has been excellent.
To date, 24 hours after sending out the first inquiry, I now have
$18,000 in pledges to add to my $10,000 offer. Lemme see now, that
makes (pause) $28,000!

And, I'm not accepting pledges less than $1,000. Let's keep life
simple. Besides, anyone with any common sense knows that the money
was never safer. Hold on! The nutters had a rush of adrenalin as
they read that, preparing to announce that I never had any intention
of ever paying out the prize money. I get that all the time, and
regularly I hear that some idiot has claimed he/she won the prize.
I am prepared to pay if and when.....

I'll be away in North Dakota until Wednesday. Surprise me with a load
of pledges!

Here are the pledgers so far:

Penn Jillette
Andrew Skolnick
John Atkinson
Harald Illig
George J. Pappas
Michael Shermer, via The Skeptics Society
Rob Glanville
Derek Lowe
Alan B. Eliasen
Scott Ballantyne
Lazz Waldo
Are Samsonsen
Bob Steiner
Ray Blessin
Brent Yaciw
Charles Staniforth
Joe Williams

These are from the U.S.A., Canada, Norway, UK and Sweden. Folks all over are joining the "2000 Club."
