Paranormal and Skeptical issues

James Randi Educational Foundation and his million dolar prize for demonstration of paranormal of supernatural abilities.
In Polish: Randi oferuje ponad milion dolarów nagrody za demonstracje zjawisk paranormalnych; nie piszcie proszę do mnie w sprawach paranormalnych, demonstrujcie je Randiemu! Jak tylko komuś uda się otrzymać nagrodę od razu porzucę swój sceptycyzm. Na razie na parapsychologię po prostu nie mam czasu, obserwuję brak postępu w tej dziedzinie od 1970 roku, przy niewspółmiernym zainteresowaniu mediów.
