Great video.

Amazing the power of his charisma and performance skills - combined with the public's desire to believe in the supernatural - to resist even the highest level of exposure and attempts to discredit.

I only know that I will not know everything.
Those "skeptics" should look the sky at night and really think about the negligible beings that we are.

Besides that, Geller is an excellent performer.


Best.

Most skeptics that I know of do exactly like that. One of the most well known and influential skeptics, Carl Sagan, produced the popular TV series "Cosmos". I find that many religious and less skeptical people sometimes tend to believe that humans are not negligible.

Significant vs. negligible is dependant upon the scope of what we are talking about. Humans are certainly significant on earth evidenced by how well we have seem to have taken over much of it - and often to the earth's detriment. If looking over the scope of the hundreds of billions of galaxies out there (and all the stars and the planets wihin each), our little earth has barely even the significance as a spec of dust has to us. It is both humbling and beautiful to consider.

Saying this, the video doesn't have anything to do with this. It talks about the little game of chess that Uri and Randi have had. I think it's amazing the power that belief has for people. Much lessons for mentalists in the video (IMO).

I look at the universe as one big cooking pot. It takes all of these ingredients to produce one single life bearing planet ( like this one). And here we are !

Indeed. It was/is a symbiotic relationship, sort of like a human and a tape worm. One cannot exist without the other even though they seem detrimental.

Depending upon the observer preconceived point of view, either could be considered the tapeworm.

Objective people see the symbiosis and are amazed at how the fundamentalists on both sides cannot see the mutual benefit Gellerandi received/receive from each other.

A few years back I watched a TV show with some mathematicians, scientists and spiritual folks. It was weird that they all came to the same conclusion. I think the show was sponsored by Lutherans if I remember correctly.
