James Randi –
Magician, author, skeptic.
August 7, 1928 – October 20, 2020.
Aged 92 years.
Most recognized for: “The Amazing Randi” performed escape acts and stage illusions with decent success… but when onlookers accused him of sorcery, he took offense. From there, his mission was to disprove – through science – that anyone has any kind of psychic or supernatural powers… including himself. He regularly appeared on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show to expose and dissect faith healers and charlatans… and offered a long-standing $1M bounty for proof of the supernatural. And then POOF… he was gone.
