Sally Morgan goes on Richard Bacon's radio show, and fails miserably. This is a classic case of cold reading gone bad! Huge respect to Richard Bacon for taking on Sally Morgan and making her look like a fool

We finally have proof of ghostly activity!
Yes we have a chair moving in a kitchen all by itself, and a cabinet door opening! Surely this is the proof we have all been waiting for!
The only problem is, that it is faked. I was forwarded the link to a Youtubechannel called "Duck of Truth"
And what i saw was a video that was the same as so many so called poltergeist videos, usually filmed in someones kitchen. But the best part is, that it is admittedly faked, and the author even shows how he did it. So next time you see one of these "100% proof of ghosts" type videos out there, just remember two simple things, 1. There are no such things as ghosts. 2. It is so easily faked.
Duck of Truth
"This video was made to show how easy it is to fake a ghost sighting. There are many videos on YouTube like this one and unfortunately people believe that they are real when they are actually fake.
All you need is some fancy video editing techniques, similar to the ones I'm showing but less broken.
Let's just say I wouldn't pass an exam with this video.
Someone requested I make a proper video showing off these techniques as I keep claiming they're easy to fake. So I did."

On June 7 1989, a TV special titled "Exploring Psychic Powers Live!" was shown on American television. Hosted by actor Bill Bixby (whose credentials included hosting the notorious "Is Elvis Alive" TV specials), the show contained live tests of people with claimed paranormal abilities, all vying for a $100,000 prize if they passed their test. Part of that prize money was the then-$10,000 prize that James Randi was offering to anyone who could prove paranormal abilities under agreed-to conditions (that still-unclaimed prize is now $1,000,000). The other $90,000 was provided by the show's producers.
Penn and Teller perform a trick, disgraced "mind reader" Uri Geller pretends to make a compass' hands move, and charlatan Sylvia Browne fails miserably in a demonstration of her "psychic abilities".

James "The Amazing" Randi is the perfect mix of Science and Magic, a true conjurer of visual machinations that can fool our senses while, at the same time, explaining to us how our senses are fooled.
In my opinion this is the best example of a "human mind debugger", he gets right into the machinations of analog tricks and sees how our brains mistakenly manifests them as a possible reality. Randi also teaches us that illusion and trickery may be comforting to the human mind, but truth is far much more wonderful as it shows us the machinations from the chaos, the sense as well as the awe in both the tricks and the real world.
For several decades, Randi has gone on to expose hundreds of psychics and teach millions across the globe about how they could be fooled into believing in a system which could potentially make them vulnerable to trickery and perhaps psychical harm.
Randi is not afraid to go against popular opinion, as shown in his battle against so-called psychic Uri Geller in the late 1970's and early 1980's.
Randi has also gone against the bizarre practice of faith "healing" and contacting the deceased, and has exposed the cruel, callous and cynical nature of the people who claim to be performing "God's will", such as Peter Popoff.
Randi has also warned us time and time again about the fraudulent practice that is homeopathic medicine and how it is essentially water solution, dished out as hocus-pocus medicine.
James Randi is the founder of The James Randi Educational Foundation, an organisation that attempts to bring reason to world by luring potential psychics into a trap, baited by a million dollar prize to prove their psychic "powers". "powers" here is a kind of vague term,as Randi knows, so the tests are usually on the so-called psychic's terms. No self-acclaimed psychic has ever won the prize.
Whether or not some form of psychic power exists is still an open question, however many psychics often do not properly gauge their so-called skills and instead brag about them, hence scepticism about such claims should not be so strange to their ears.
Unfortunately the vast amount of psychic powers they have seem to remove all self-esteem as many psychics are often uneasy about Randi's reasonable request and attractive million dollar reward.

It may not come as a surprise, but Hollywood Medium's Tyler Henry may not be the "clairvoyant, and medical intuitive" he says he is. On his reality show, Henry and his mom visit celebrities' homes to connect with their deceased loved ones. But it's hard to believe that this young man supposedly knows nothing about the celebrities he meets with. Doesn't he have a TV? Here are all the reasons why Hollywood Medium is a sham...

Long Island Medium star Theresa Caputo claims that she can talk to dead people. She's not the first person to make this claim, but we don't need to talk to the spirits to know that she's a fake. Here's how we know...
