James Randi Million Dollar Challenge.

Modern times are considered an age of rationality. As far as the Western, so-called «First World» is concerned, there’s only little margin left (if any) for non-scientific approaches like faith, belief, or «the supernatural». Hence, each and every phenomenon not (yet) included in the scientific canon is observed to be both sceptical and at a distance. Whenever we see something we can’t explain, we assume that there must be some trick to it.
Watching Miroslaw Magola a.k.a. Magnetic Man lifting objects and attaching them to his body by the mere means of psychic power has provoked the critics from day one. Very well! Mr Magola is up to the challenge of being tested, examined and observed thoroughly; even more so, he’s eager to have his powers verified by scientific test methods such as repeatability, documentability, and the elimination of manipulation. He has even proved his readiness on various occasions, including examinations by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Ruhenstroth-Bauer, biochemists at the German Max Planck Institute, Dr. Friedbert Karger, plasma physicist at the German Max Planck Institute, Dr. David Lewis, neurophysiologist at UK’s renowned neuro-research center MindLab and Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, professor of Physics at St. Petersburg State Technical University in Russia.
«Anything I have done in public, whether on stage, on television or YouTube, I am quite prepared to repeat live in public and to prove to any sceptics ( skeptics ) that I am not a fake» says Miroslaw Magola.
Unfortunately, sceptics (skeptics ) apparently are far less ready to have their convictions questioned than they are to repeat them like a dogmatic mantra. Having issued, for example, a «million-dollar challenge» on prime-time TV, they’ve repeatedly refused to invite Magnetic Man to such a public presentation. They’d rather have him examined in a clandestine closed environment (think: neon-lit basement) without any public participation whatsoever.
Since there is at least one reason for everything, let’s try and figure which it might be here. The most obvious comes to mind: there’s a lot of money involved. Nobody is willing to lose any significant amount, unless there’s a similarily significant amount of reward. In terms of mass media, that reward could be the revelation of a swindle. When it comes to Magnetic Man, there’s no swindle involved to be revealed – so, let’s keep him covert!
Miroslaw Magola has provided a variety of media presentations that cause us to question the limitations of our knowledge, giving us impetus to find an explanation. Anytime we gain new knowledge, our perceptions expand. So, Mr. James Randi give the public a chance to expand their knowledge, give them a public live experience of Mangetic Man’s extraordinary abilities! There’s no doubt whatsoever that major TV stations inside and outside the US are eager to present this demonstration.
