Atheist heroes: The Amazing "Amazing Randi"

I was privileged to briefly meet the Amazing Randi at the Reason Rally. I am excited to get to know him better at The Amazing Meeting in Las Vegas, July 12-15, 2012. http://www.amazingmeeting.com/TAM2012/.

Best known as a challenger of paranormal claims and pseudoscience, Randi is the founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF). Randi began his career as a magician named The Amazing Randi, but after retiring at age 60, he began investigating paranormal, occult, and supernatural claims, which he collectively calls "woo-woo."

At the American Atheists convention, I met Tyler Measom, producer/director of An Honest Liar: The James Randy Story.  You can watch the trailer at http://www.anhonestliar.com/anhonestliar/Home.html.  I can't wait to see the movie.  It does look truly amazing (pun intended).

This is one of my favorite quotes from the Amazing Randi:
