WARNING TO PARENTS AND CHILDREN READING THIS BOARD

Another FMSF Advisory Board member, James Randi, was involved in a scandal in which (according to court records): "The scientist's lawyers sought to discredit Mr. Randi by playing taped conversations of teen-age boys who called the magician's home allegedly for sex."
[ Byrd v Randi (Civil Action No. MJG-89-636 in the United States District for the Court for the District of Maryland.] Transcripts of the tape are also part of the court record in Geller v Randi, (Civil Action No 91-1014-SSH in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The transcripts are contained in Exhibit 40 to Exhibit U].

Prometheus Books , publishers of Children's Sexual Encounters with Adults, is run by Paul Kurtz , Professor emeritus of Philosophy, State University of New York at Buffalo. He is chairman of CSICOP (Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal) which runs the Skeptical Inquirer . Prometheus publishes an extensive Human Sexuality Books section under the editorship of Vern Bullough (AAA10/March 1996), Dean of Natural and Social Science at State University, New York, who is a CSICOP Board member.
Vern Bullough is also listed as a board member of Paidika, the Dutch paedophile magazine in which Dr Ralph Underwager , co-founder of the FMSF in the US said he thought having sex with children could be seen as part of God's will; that paedophiles should make their loving image clearer to the outside world; and that the USA was virulently anti-sexuality at present. His wife, Hollida Wakefield, who also took part in the interview said she thought it would be "nice" if someone could do a longitudinal study of 100 twelve year old boys in loving relationships with paedophiles. More recently on the Internet, Dr Underwager posted further thoughts in which he emphasised his belief that the "criminalization of sex" was destroying the social compact.
Prometheus also publishes the books of James Randi, an ex-CSICOP Member and present FMSF Advisory Board member.
Other FMSF Board Members, Martin Gardner, Ray Hyman, Elizabeth Loftus, Loren Pancratz, Thomas Sebeok are also CSICOP board members.[ Accuracy About Abuse Newsletter April 1996]


You had the right to know what “extra” publications and “thoughts” some co- founders members promoted or did.

Latinurinal you are a freaking lunatic. Generally, I have compassion for the mentally handicapped but you are such an asshole, I just can't seem to muster any.


Edited to say: Are you implying that 'the new skeptisim' is spreading half-truths, lies and slander?


If I knew then what I know now then I would know more now than I know.

You really just don't get it, do you Latinijral?

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

Deliberate attempts to slander the SFN now?

You are aware that slander is a criminal offense, I hope.

True. And re-posting from a locked thread is redundant since the thread was not deleted. Everything you posted in the locked thread, and the replies, are still available for all to see. You know that. Threads are routinely locked at 15 pages. You know that too. You also knew that this thread would be locked. So the only possible motive you could have for re-posting from an available thread is harassment. That is a TOS violation.

This your final warning!

This thread is locked until you answer the questions that you have been dodging since last November.

Note: Anyone, other than latinijral, who wishes to continue the conversation from the URI GELLER ................... A FRAUD? thread are free to open a new thread.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

This gomer defies belief.

Hey latinjral, when will you get it through your petrified gourd that nobody cares what you have to say any longer.

Nobody cares that you will never answer any question put to you because we all have long since come to realize that, in your arrogance and ignorance, you have no answer. And if you actually did have an answer, it would be no less full of shit than all of your past blatherings.

Kind of amazing, when you think about it. When you came here, you were given all of the credibility and respect offered to everyone. You took that and, within a very few posts, turned it into clown show; then a nuisance, and through it all, some sort of whine that you have been unfairly treated.

You have ampley demonstrated that you are incapable of reasonable discourse, so, pendejo, why don't you just gibber off, back to that twisted gaga-land from whence you came? Or don't they want you there, either?
