An Honest Liar – The Story of James “The Amazing One” Randi

Posted by mattusmaximus on February 18, 2012

One of my biggest skeptical heroes is James Randi.  He is a small man with a big laugh, an even bigger heart, and an even bigger love for the pursuit of skeptical analysis into all manner of paranormal, mystical, or odd-ball claims.  For Randi, no questions are off limits and skepticism knows no bounds; he and his legacy are one of the primary reasons why I am here, doing what I do on this blog and in my daily life as a skeptic and teacher, and I know his work (through the James Randi Educational Foundation) has reached and inspired countless others.  Now there is a movie being made about him, called “An Honest Liar: The Amazing Randi Story”.

Watch the trailer, pass it on to your friends (even if they aren’t card-carrying skeptics), and consider helping to get this film made.  As is stated early in the trailer, “This is a film about trickery, fraud, about lies…” :)

    There’s a hole in the world like a grate black pit
    and its filled with people who are filled with shit
    and the vermin of the world inhabit it!

    That Randi is a fraud, himself. He and his boyfriend stole the identity of a man in NYC so his boyfriend could stay in the country after overstaying his student visa and having his passport expire. Rather than fix his immigration issues he stole the identity of an American and put the guy through hell for twenty five years. The boyfriend finally got caught but got a slap on the wrist. I wouldn’t call Randi “honest”–anyone who can do that to another person is a fraud and a cheat and a liar. How he can call himself a fighter against fraud when he’s a liar and a thief is beyond me.
