Excuses for not taking the Randi Challenge
Claus Larsen at Skeptic Report is wondering why nobody has ever passed the test offered by JREF.
Not one single person could actually do what he or she claimed to be able to do, and the one-million-dollar prize is still there to anyone who can show, under proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power or event.
He comes up with - I counted 28 excuses - correct me if I am wrong, that all have been used to avoid the challenge by possible participants.
Another possible way to "avoid" the challenge is to make a challenge by oneself like Marion Damper Jeans did.
Really there are no excuses for not picking up $1 million, except that.....
