The Nut Doctor Again PDF Print E-mail
Swift
Written by James Randi   

From reader Mogens Winther comes the latest ravings of Dr. Richard Boylan. He was asked:

Just curious Dr. B – has the establishment scientific community acknowledged this asteroid is on the way? Have they said anything about it? I haven't seen anything about it online or anywhere else. Thanks.

A Delayed Expression of Delight PDF Print E-mail
Swift
Written by James Randi   

I warn you: this is essentially a political message. Now, as most of you know, the JREF is a 501(c)3, tax-exempt organization, and we may not officially be involved in matters of a political nature. Though this message was prepared by me on October 19th, it was stored until now so that the nationwide process of voting on November 4th would be over and done with – though the results may not yet have been made known as you read this. This way, we cannot influence the election in any way.

Some Good Suggestions - Badly Expressed PDF Print E-mail
Swift
Written by James Randi   

From a site to which I cannot send you, comes this set of questions, comments, and suggestions, from an angry individual who has been found in SWIFT before… I cannot send you to the site, because he uses obscenities and downright juvenile language to express his strong feelings, so I have – admittedly – censored what follows so that the important content is more easily accepted. I’m annoyed by having to search for grammatical errors, tasteless language, and spelling mistakes, but I do so when I feel it’s called for. No, I’m no “bluenose,” and I don’t recognize “obscenity” as anything but poor taste, but since we have no control over who reads this openly-accessible site, I’ve chosen to spare readers as much annoyance and offense as I can.

Boylan Praised PDF Print E-mail
Swift
Written by James Randi   

It appears that Dr. Richard Boylan hasn’t been at all slowed down in his efforts to preach woo-woo. From October 25th, we were forwarded this set of endorsements of his campaign. From UFOFacts Yahoo Groups we see kudos for his pretentious “StarKid & Star Seed Adult Workshop” held in Pennsylvania. Here are a few examples:

What a wonderful experience!!! I have no other words to describe what you kindly shared with us. Thank you so much.

In light & love

Stop STOPSYLVIABROWNE? PDF Print E-mail
Swift
Written by Jeffrey Wagg   

ssb.jpgAt the JREF, we've been a huge supporter of Robert S. Lancaster and his stopkaz.com and stopsylviabrowne.com sites.  You'll notice that I didn't link to stopsylviabrowne this time... that's because that site has been taken over by someone who does not have the same interests as Robert. Sadly, during Robert's illness, his domain lapsed and was instantly snatched up by someone who may or may not be associated with Sylvia Browne.
