Asteroid Coming! PDF Print E-mail
Swift
Written by James Randi   

At this article from last week, you’ll see some of the excellent coverage that reader Mogen Winthers has been providing us on this totally – and dangerously – self-deluded man, Dr. Richard Boylan, a defrocked psychiatrist who has been circulating statements about a fictitious asteroid that he says celestial powers have told him will impact Earth on November 15th, and has asked for a Joint Psychic Exercise [JPE] by all his fellow-nuts to steer the visitor away from Earth.

Mogen shares with us the following meanderings of one of Boylan’s similarly-deluded sycophants, who is a direct product of Boylan’s interference with his sanity:

The Diverting of an asteroid:

I am afraid I cannot contribute in conventional fashion to the JPE. I can use spiritual energy fairly well but I have not mastered on any level kinetic manipulation. I will offer support so that those who can use it will be more able, but other than that, what can I do? I have not practiced anything else. I know I can, I can feel that I can, I just can't seem to break the barrier that holds it back. I don't think its the best idea for me to break it either, since I am pretty sure I put it there because of some pretty destructive things I have done with my energy. It is either that or the power that I am sensing is not my own and it seeks to manifest through me in order to "give" me an ability outside my means. In any case, I can't seem to do it, and I wish us all the best of luck.

Jonathan Martin

The best “luck” you could have, Jonathan, would be to wake up and see Boylan for what he is: an insane psychiatrist...

No asteroid will impact the Earth on Saturday. The “JPE” will take total credit for this, they will celebrate their success, and continue being nuts... Mind you, if such an asteroid were on its way, it would by now be clearly evident to us, and would have been announced in the press, but such facts have no impact nor importance to the Boylan crowd, all of whom – as above – have the juvenile notion that they have mystical powers.

ummm, shouldn't that be an insane former psychiatrist who had his license revoked? Just a technicality I know but just wanted to point that out.

By the way, not sure if it's been linked to before but I located a transcript of the hearing in which his license(s) was revoked.

Actually his computations were wrong. The asteroid would have hit Earth today (November 14), but I diverted it with my psychic (or is that psychotic?) powers.

Perhaps Dr. Boylan is wrong and it's really that asteroid named after Randi that will land on his head. Hey, I wonder if that's in Plait's new book-the Randi asteroid ending the world! smilies/wink.gif

It just turned November 15. There has been no impact as of 12:12AM eastern.
No asteroid?
JPE assistance?
Accurate Randi prediction?

You decide~

written by tommasa, November 14, 2008

It's 8.40 PM in Brisbane, Australia and I'm still here.

Rats, I shouldn't have traded in all my worldly possessions for beer and strippers.

Hupphupp, it`s 12:03 in sunny Norway and a asteroid has in fact landed and we are all dead. This is simply my outer body experience writing, but Andrew sends his regards.

Or..

People can actually stop for just to sec, look at the statement and say "hang on a minuit", that sounds a bit off. Maybe he is a lying cheating dumbwit just after my money? Nah, couldn't be, he has such an honest smile. I can tell. I can "feeeeeel" it.

duh.

Haha, hang on iv`e got another one:

Its 12:09 in sunny Norway and an asteroid has in fact landed. The landing was perfect and spot on the local runway in Oslo. The little green men were met by our primeminister who can insure us that they come in piss. Opps, I mean they come in peace.

Hehe..

Sycophant?
written by CWS, November 15, 2008
Shoot, I was laughing while reading J. Martin's statement; I thought it was written 'tongue-in-cheek'. I'm still not sure. Either way, it's funny.

Randi, you're forgetting that the cabal/conspiracy/whatever is preventing scientists from going to the press, and preventing the press from announcing it even if they knew it, which of course they don't. In these people's odd logic, something not happening is proof that it would have happened if they hadn't kept it from happening, and also proof that there's a conspiracy to keep us from knowing why it didn't happen. That's enough, I'm starting to confuse myself.

Well, it's November 17, and I didn't even know there was a chance I'd die two days ago. Oh well.

...Or maybe this means this nutbag succeeded in diverting the asteroid! Yeah!

Just logged on to the site after being busy last weekend and read that i'm dead. For some reason my spirit still thinks that i'm alive however and I still felt the desire to get up for work this morning. Odd

Show some respect
written by Bill Henry, November 20, 2008
Hey this guys successfully stopped an asteroid from hitting the earth and y'all is dissing him. We should all thank him and probably send like $5 to him.

By the way I stopped even a bigger asteroid a few days ago .... I think like $100 each is fair ...
