Extraordinary People: The Million Dollar Mind Reader

Derek Ogilvie says he can read the minds of infants who are too young to communicate verbally.

Now he agrees to undergo a series of controlled experiments to test the limits of his alleged abilities.

He even faces the ultimate sceptic in the form of James Randi, an investigator of the paranormal who has offered $1million to anyone who can provide evidence of the supernatural.

Apparently. “I get little movies played to me, I really do, I’m not a liar, I really, really do,” pants the Scotsman, spherical head bobbing like a drowning apple as footage shows the “professional psychic” doing frantic jazz hands while an expressionless toddler batters his thighs with something plastic.

Here, Ogilvie subjects himself to James Randi’s “one million dollar psychic challenge”, which promises to separate the actually psychic wheat from the transparently cobblers chaff. Unmissable.

    The only thing interesting in this was the thought that a guy could spend a 17 years and put up a million dollars to disprove psychics. The last test proves only that he tries to connect not that he actually does

    It’s really easy to claim you can communicate with the dead and with children who are, themselves, unable to communicate, because there is no proof either way.  You cannot prove you’re doing it and you can’t disprove it because you don’t have the other party to tell you if it’s actually happening.

    This is such a terrible scam feeding off the emotions of people who are too stressed out and just want someone tell them what to do.
