James "the Amazing" Randi

James Randi is an author, professional magician, debunker of pseudoscience, and exposer of "psychic" rip-off artists.

The world’s greatest skeptic, James Randi has debunked a host of popular fads, superstitions, and beliefs pushed by the naive, the gullible, and the fraudulent. The author, whose professional stage name is “the Amazing Randi,” is a founder of the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP, pronounced sigh-cop).

Randi is perhaps most famous for being the man who has offered a One Million Dollar reward to anyone who can demonstate, under mutually agreed-to scientific conditions, that they have any actual paranormal, mystical or metaphysical powers. Needless to say, this very generous prize has yet to be claimed.

In his books, Randi has debunked every type of phony science and every topic in the so-called supernatural realm, from biorhythms and magneto-therapy to prehistoric alien visits and communication with "the dead." He has also provided readers with two excellent biographies: on Harry Houdini, that other great debunker, and on Nostradamus, the most famous phony fortune teller in history.
