Commentary #

James Randi is the founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF)—an organization that claims to be "an educational resource on the paranormal, pseudoscientific, and the supernatural." JREF also has a $1 million dollar challenge for concrete evidence, in the form of a mutually-accepted test procedure, of paranormal or supernatural powers. No one has ever won the prize.
