I have been harassed by Dennis Markuze/David Mabus for going on 20 years, and I have an imposing collection of filters in my email to block him. At the peak of his mania, he was dunning me with 20-30 emails a day, all repetitive, all totally nuts, and he was sending death threats and other attempts to intimidate me…which were remarkably ineffective, since everything he wrote was twisted and bizarre ...
My actual ideas center upon the utter waste of intelligence used in the ideology of atheism
and the importance of peace and disarmament for the planet, and the terrible costs of war.
Funny that born liar PZ only mentions Mabus in 2008http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2008/05/02/the-recent-mabus-incursion/
... I’ve been getting these threats from Markuze since 1993 — it’s gradually grown from an occasional deranged message on usenet to part of my daily routine, where I’m dealing with hundreds of ranty messages every day from one disturbed individual in Montreal, Canada. And I’m not even his sole target: he has a hate-on for Shermer, Randi, and Dawkins, and this is all he does with his life: he sits in his bedroom in his parent’s house and sends out shrill, incoherent messages to the world, all day long.
threat and intimidation ... stalking the entire internet ... cyberbullies
Written by Tim Farley [ in 2011]Thursday brought news from Montréal, Canada of further action in the “David Mabus” case.Last month his spam and threats (which had accelerated on Twitter) got the attention of the press and the police where he lives in Montréal. The story of how this came about is an interesting case study in online skeptic activism which I documented in detail on my blog. It resulted in his arrest on August 16 and appearance before a judge on a total of 16 charges of making death threats …
randi and his dangerous paranormal games! SCOFF!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_0E1XJP33E
At the MIT Media Lab in April [1st] 2008, Hi-Tech Magician Seth Raphael (http://magicseth.com/) challenged James Randi (http://randi.org/), claiming his computer can read minds
As an April Fool's prank on April 1, 2008, at the MIT Media Lab, Randi awarded the prize to magician Seth Raphael after participating in a test of Raphael's "psychic abilities" ...Since the challenge was first created by Randi in 1964, about a thousand people have applied, but no one has been successful.
Would "remote viewing" 500 years in to the future be considered "proof" of paranormal powers?
no Nostradamus quatrain is known to have been interpreted as predicting a specific event before it occurred, other than in vague, general terms that could equally apply to any number of other events.
Studies on the relationship between schizotypy and susceptibility to the Forer effect have shown high amounts of correlation ...
... I remember pulling from the library while I was high school an edition of the Prophecies. Somehow I knew that Depeche Mode was going to be referenced inside. I just knew it. I told one my friends at the time what I thought and he said I was crazy. But we were sitting outside smoking some hash in the yard and I was flipping through the pages until we hit Century VIII, Quatrain 66 which says, “When the letters D.M. are found …” He looked at me in amazement and said, “You’re right!”
... Randi sets out to prove that Nostradamus was a fraud and that his writings are so vague and unspecific that they can be made to mean almost anything ...
In statistics, apophenia is called a Type I error, seeing patterns where none, in fact, exist. It is highly probable that the apparent significance of many unusual experiences and phenomena are due to apophenia, e.g., ghosts and hauntings, EVP, numerology, the Bible code, anomalous cognition, ganzfeld "hits", most forms of divination, the prophecies of Nostradamus, remote viewing, and a host of other paranormal and supernatural experiences and phenomena.
Just shows what you can achieve by mistranslating ...
