This week’s ignunt fool of the week is…
Why? He thought that Uri Geller didn’t have real telekinetic powers when he clearly demonstrated his spoon-bending powers multiple times like in this video which eliminates all possibility of trickery!
Alright, alright… Just kidding (and Mr. Randi, if you’re reading this, I’m terribly sorry and I didn’t mean it).
I’m actually dedicating this week’s ignunt fool of the week to everybody who bought into Uri Geller’s claims without investigating them sceptically.
And I know, I know… it’s easy to be fooled, but James Randi was putting the truth out there for years and people still insisted on believing Uri Geller was the real thing.
In the days before the Internet, I suppose it took more effort to research this stuff, but it’s a lot easier nowadays to investigate claims since the invention of… Google.
Google is amazing. Type in something like, say… magnetic therapy. That’s how I first stumbled upon The Skeptic’s Dictionary which turned out to be an amazing resource for the sceptical investigation of claims.
So, in the Age of Google, don’t be lazy. Check on these claims before you decide to be a blind sheep.
