    Default An Honest Liar: The Amazing Randi Story trailer



    I don't know if any of you guys know who James Randi is, but he is known for being a magician and skeptic. He's broken a few Guinness world records, believe it or not! However, he is perhaps most famous today as being a sort of "debunker" of psychics and charlatans. He advocates critical thinking skills and the scientific method and always wants to put the claims of psychics and such to the test. In fact, he'll give $1 million if you can prove to him that you have psychic powers in a controlled environment!

    Anyway, the documentary seems like it will be about his life. I'm very interested to see what happens.

    Adam Savage, Bill Nye, Penn and Teller, Richard Dawkins, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson are all going to be making appearances in the documentary at some point.

    Anyway, there's a Kickstarter for this here that's ending soon if anyone's interested. I don't know if many of you visit this section of the forum, but maybe some of you will stumble upon it. It's already funded and there are only 13 hours left if you want to donate (and pick up a copy of the documentary).

    Well, I have no idea what the quality of the documentary would be like, but I love James Randi.

    Oh boy, thanks for sharing. I love James Randi. And Penn and Teller. And most everyone on that list. I'm exceedingly interested to see this, I hadn't heard about it.

    Yeah, that's exactly why I've been a bit hesitant to give any money. I'm going to decide whether or not to donate when I wake up in the morning,

    To be fair, I have no idea how much the others will end up appearing in the film.

    Well I ended up only donating enough to get a neat set of playing cards. I'm a bit of a cheapskate, so I'll end up buying the documentary later when it comes out. Can't wait!
