3 MILLION DOLLAR
NEW SKEPTICAL CHALLENGE
Italy: the psychic Maurizio Armanetti relaunches and triples the previous challenge of James Randi of only 1 million dollar to a new challenge of 3 million dollar.
James Randy says: no one has even won my prize demonstrating a paranormal phenomenon. That means that, under control, paranormal phenomena do not exist.
Well, I can prove the contrary and therefore not only that Randi’s assumption is false but following the logic I can confirm with evidence that the skeptics “do not exist” but the paranormal phenomenon yes, they do exist.
I can affirm all this for two reasons:
1) Randi’s tests are not only biased and pseudoscientific but also are created to deny the paranormal phenomenology. Therefore they have no value, they are “nonsense” using the word that likes the magician Randi.
2) Before I offered at Randi, CICAP and the skeptics one million Euro, now became 3 million dollars… and no one has won because no one wanted to participate. Therefore I can affirm that the skeptics “do not exist” and that the paranormal phenomena, yes, that exist!
In fact, what else can stop those, who at this point become former skeptics (not sceptical), to win without any risk 3 million dollars, if not the certainty that my paranormal phenomena are real? So, if you do not accept my challenge, Armanetti’s prize of three million dollars that is 100% scientific, you accept therefore that my paranormal phenomena are real and that the sceptics become former skeptics and so they do not exist anymore.
“3 MILLION DOLLARS”, Maurizio Armanetti launches THE PRIZE-CHALLENGE to James Randi, CICAP, Piero Angela…etc. THE CHALLENGE will consist of 100 particular and extremely difficult water searches, impossible for any scientific equipment of today.
For 100 times Maurizio Armanetti have to locate only a special kind of water: the precious thermal spa water. So, Armanetti must demonstrate his paranormal abilities able to distinguish, at hundreds of meters in the underground, if the water has the chemical characteristics of a thermal spa water.
It’s an experiment never attempt before in the history of challenges between dowsing and science, since almost two centuries.
“3 MILION DOLLARI”, $ 30.000 dollari for each test. The sum of $ 30,000 will be delivered to a notary before every search of thermal water. If successful, the amount will be transferred by the Notary to the challengers. Il test will be organized so that the areas, where the tests will take place, will be unknown to Maurizio Armanetti before the search. The areas will be chosen by the 100 customers. These 100 customers will only pay if the search is successful, benefiting from the important discovery of thermal spa water. The drilling will be performed by Armanetti and his drilling company of trust.
In this way it will be possible to control that all stages of the thermal water search happen only with the paranormal method of “Psicoestesia” ( dowsing).
Scientifically seems to be impossible that the human mind is able to do a extraordinary psychic analysis and therefore it won’t be only “a challenge” but, in case of success, it will be a giant step for the discovery of the ability of brain.
THE CHALLENGE: VERIFY A PARANORMAL PHENOMENON… and do it for 100 times!!!!!
The areas considered valid will be those in which Maurizio Armanetti discovers with his method, “The Psicoestesia” (dowsing), the presence of thermal water at a maximum depth of 600 m and wherein is excluded the presence of gas at that depth.
All drillings without success, because there is no presence of water with the chemical charateristics of thermal spa water, will be payed by Maurizio Armanetti which reserves himself, however, in exclusive all journalistic and television rights of the challenge.
The customers, which benefit of the Thermal spa water, because of a successful drilling, will pay Armanetti.
In Italy , according to Prof. Roberto Chetoni luminary of the italian geologic research,the thermal water has a average value of around 3 million dollars.
Regions most suitable to avoid gas: Piemonte, Lombardia, Veneto, Toscana, Lazio, Sicilia…
In 100 searches selected by the skeptics and under their supervision, only two things can happen:
1) My economic failure, because each failed drilling will be paid by me. But if I were a part of the skeptics, I would not count on, because in all my searches for thermal spa water I reached, to this day, 100% of success.
2) The skeptics publicly defeat me.
But because of my really great extrasensory ability will happen this:
THE SKEPTICS WILL EARN 3 MILION DOLLARS… AND SCIENCE WILL MAKE A NEW IMPORTANT STEP IN THE RESEARCH OF THE SPECIAL, STILL UNKNOWN, EXTRAORDINARY ABILITY’ OF THE BRAIN.
