 From what I understand, Puthoff is well respected in the field
of theoretical physics.

Randi criticized a PSI experiment? Really? You don't say.
Please. Give me a break. Geller may not be perfect but he has
done many unexplainable things. The experiments he did with
Puhoff and Targ were written up in the Journal Nature I believe.
Some of Randi's criticisms were just so ridiculous. Randi will
NEVER accept any experiement as being proof of PSI. Ask Randi if
he thinks there is any evidence that physical UFOs exist. Guess
what he would say? The guy is a joke. He has done some good but
he will never admit that evidence does exist for the reality of
PSI. Never.

If you hear Randi tell his side of a story and then hear the
other side, chances are, both sides will be completely

Read Jonathon Margolis' "Uri Geller: Magician or Mystic?"

Margolis, I believe, also has written for Time Magazine or
Newsweek - one of the two. He was a complete skeptic going in.
But he kept his mind open until he checked into it for himself.
Something most people don't do.

Here are what some other scientists have said about Geller. You
can read all of their comments at:


Click on "What scientists say about Uri Geller."

These are not offered as proof of Geller's abilities but to let
people know that if Geller has fooled all of these people, then
he must be given some type of medal or something. Some of the
experiments at SRI were done under scientific conditions. Some
were done just to see what would happen.

Here are just two of many comments from scientists
regarding Geller:

"Geller has bent my ring in the palm of my hand without ever
touching it. Personally, I have no scientific explanation for
the phenomena." - Dr. Wernher von Braun (NASA scientist & father
of the Rocket - U.S.A.)



"Geller altered the lattice structure of a metal alloy in a way
that cannot be duplicated. There is no present scientific
explanation as to how he did this." (This is the first research
related to parapsychology conducted at a US Government facility
to have been released for publication by the US Department of
Defence). - Eldon Byrd (US Naval Surface Weapons Centre,
Maryland - U.S.A.)
