The James Randi thing is very interesting. But have also heard some say that he is disingenuous in terms of setting out to discredit things. Personally I like his challenge for all the people out there who claim this, that and the other 'powers' etc. You would think it would be easy enough to score the million! I think now he has just turned on professional charlatans and no one else can enter the test.

The James Randi Foundation is now at http://www.randi.org/site/

Following the jamesrandi.org link does not work.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.

With no intention to offend anyone here is a link to a video that spoofs "the great dissapointment"

Believing is not seeing specially when we are talking about people that intends to intimidate others by saying to them that they are going to hell or gona lose their souls etc

Being sceptical is a necesity in this age of disinformation IMHO

I always check and double check and only follow my own intuition
