Very sad. In his day his approach to,one day cricket was as revolutionary as that of jayasuriya a few years later.

Damn damn damn, I'm really very upset about that one!

I have lots of his books, including a detailed description of how Uri Geller did all his tricks. Plus his designs of tests for 'psychics' are brilliant. Anyone who suspects they're being fooled by a so-called psychic should always ask a conjurer's opinion. The man was a legend - and an excellent magician, of course. A real life Jonathan Creek (who I suspect was partly inspired by him. Well, apart from the hair, obviously).

Strangely, no-one has ever claimed his million dollar prize. I guess the Randi Foundation will continue to offer that, a sort of anti- (but not ig-) Nobel prize for aspiring psychics...?
James Randi wrote:I hereby state my opinion that the notion of a god is a basic superstition, that there is no evidence for the existence of any god(s), that devils, demons, angels and saints are myths, that there is no life after death, heaven nor hell, that the Pope is a dangerous, bigoted, medieval dinosaur, and that the Holy Ghost is a comic-book character worthy of laughter and derision. I accuse the Christian god of murder by allowing the Holocaust to take place -- not to mention the "ethnic cleansing" presently being performed by Christians in our world -- and I condemn and vilify this mythical deity for encouraging racial prejudice and commanding the degradation of women.
Rest in atheist's paradise, Mr Zwinge.
