Since 1998 the James Randi Educational Foundation has offered a one million dollar prize for anyone who can demonstrate psychic, paranormal, or occult abilities. The offer’s been in effect for about 10 years now, and no one has been able to earn the cash.
Now, while the JREF earns a certain income from having the prize money very conservatively invested, that sum could certainly be used more productively if it were made freely available to us.
As of March 6th, 2010 – twelve years after the challenge was first offered – it will be.
The James Randi Educational Foundation Million-Dollar Challenge will be discontinued 24 months from this coming March 6th, and those prize funds will then be available to generally add to our flexibility. This move will free us to do many more projects, which will be announced at that time.
So the time’s running out! Demonstrate your occult powers today.
