James Randi himself

James "The Amazing" Randi has an international reputation as a magician and escape artist, but today he is best known as the world's most tireless investigator and demystifier of paranormal and pseudoscientific claims.

Randi has pursued "psychic" spoonbenders, exposed the dirty tricks of faith healers, investigated homeopathic water "with a memory," and generally been a thorn in the sides of those who try to pull the wool over the public's eyes in the name of the supernatural.

James "the Amazing" Randi in a more mystical moment.


In 1996, the James Randi Educational Foundation was established to further Randi's work. Among other duties, the foundation adminsters a million dollar paranormal challenge, offering a prize to anyone who can prove the existence of any supernatural phenomenon. To date, it remains unclaimed.
