13,000 pounds – an unlucky number?

Posted by Martin Poulter on 16 February 2006

The value of the Psychic Challenge prize offered by ASKE (UK Association for Skeptical Enquiry) has reached thirteen thousand pounds, including five hundred pounds of my own money. This money will be paid out to anyone who demonstrates a real paranormal power: aura reading, spoon-bending, clairvoyance, dowsing…

There are other similar psychic challenges around the world, the big one being the Million Dollar Challenge offered by the Randi Foundation in Florida. What’s the catch? There isn’t one, but you have to really demonstrate the ability. A stage magician faking psychic powers wouldn’t be eligible, and the demonstration would have to rule out that possibility.

Given that these challenges have been around for years, you’d think they would have been claimed by one of those genuine psychics that we hear about all the time. Yeah right!
