…because the video below might ruin your appetite.
The other night I watched the live season finale of Phenomenon, which was amusing if only for the revisiting of the Criss vs. Jim Callahan & Uri fight. Criss pulled out the envelopes he had during their fight, when he offered Jim and Uri a million dollars if they could tell him what’s inside. Criss opened one envelope on the live finale, showing that inside he had written “911,” in honor of the fact that no psychics stepped forward on September 10 to tell anyone about what was going to occur. Go Criss!
I was looking for a clip to show you, but instead found the below interviews with the involved parties, shot just after the first big fight. It starts with Uri, who tries to change the focus of the argument from “Jim is not a psychic and should not manipulate the barest emotions of others” to “hey, you can’t prove there’s no life after death!” Very sneaky.
Uri goes on to state that “we” still don’t understand e=mc2, and for some reason this validate life after death which in turn validates Jim Callahan channeling a dead person who can only write in mirrored text and describes a toy car as “metal box, 4 weels [sic].” Oh, and apparently Einstein discovered the law of conservation of energy. According to Uri. Which of course is wrong.
On a side note, have you noticed that Einstein is the anti-Hitler? Anyone who wants to prove a point in the quickest way possible will do it by one of two ways: saying that his opponent’s argument was supported by Hitler, or that his own argument was supported by Einstein. Then he’ll go on to quote something out of context which “proves” the relationship. Seriously, happens all the time.
Anyway, Uri’s stupid blathering is followed up by Criss Angel, who may not be the most eloquent speaker but who gives shout-outs to Johnny Carson and Randi’s televised debunking of Uri. He is very upfront about his skepticism, and it’s pretty cool to see a new prominent critical thinker on the scene.
Sadly, Criss’s skeptical rant is followed by Jim Callahan, who thinks that because his lame act was exposed for what it was, Christians should be outraged because Jesus doesn’t exist. Wait, what? Yeah, I don’t know either. Enjoy the circus by clicking below.
