Hello it’s just gone past Midnight here in Australia and I’ve found out James Randi does the MDC for people who can make a working perpetual motion machine.
Well it just so happens that I have plans of such a device,though because of my perceived mental loony state,JREF will probably decline to have me as a real claimant to win the million dollar prize…

Randi the mainstream scientist actually fits very well.

No I haven’t tried to make contact with JREF though tonight I was speaking on the phone to a West Australian Skeptic to see how to go about being a possible candidate for the Australian Skeptics $100,000 prize.

There’s a meeting in March and will find out more then if I show up.

Randi requires that you prove that you have the ability, which would probably require you to actually BUILD the machine, not just have plans for it.  Don’t you think?

I’m curious, you said “your perceived mental loony state”. What do you mean by “loony” and who’s doing the perceiving, you, others?

me and others…

I have said alot of wacky things due to believing or should I say was FRIGHTENED into believing the Holy Bible as the infallible word of God from my parents and general public as a child.Though I no longer believe in God or the Scriptures due to me standing up against it by using logic and reasoning and especially denouncing the so called ‘‘morals of the Bible’’ by seeing how UNFAIR the requirements to gain the promised eternal life.

Yes,I believe I am still in the process of repairing the extreme damage that was done to my mental state from the fears of punishment which the Bible has rammed down my throat since my childhood….. I am 46 years old and believe it’s not too late to fight back to regain ones SANITY grin

Some people take longer than others to heal from long lasting childhood mental abuse.

JREF won’t have anything to do with me unless I can attract the interest of the Australian Skeptics which has a cash prize $100,000.So I’m hoping to finnish building the machine and then take it apart (if need be partly destroy certain parts) before going to the next West Australian Skeptics meeting in March.

Ok, I’m sure you’re not alone in having gone through what you did. Hopefully you’re talking to others.  Now what does that have to do with having a PMM accepted for judgment? And really, I’d say before you waste any time and money, maybe you should read up on what you’re trying to do. There’s some other thread in this forum about PMM where some guy claimed to have built one in his house. Find that thread. Bottom line is, you’re not going to build one. Now if you need to try for psychological reasons, well, have at it and have fun, can’t hurt to try…or can it? False hope can be a bad thing too. Just be careful ok because you sound like a good person who was dealt a crappy hand. Don’t deal yourself one too.

You don’t sound loony to me highflertoo. You sound like you have freed yourself from other peoples delusions….careful not to delude yourself. Check out the dialogue about perpetual motion. It is easy to fool yourself when the signal is very small. Tiny forces can keep your system functioning but that does not make it a perpetual motion machine. Keep your sanity and don’t try to fight the second law of thermodynamics…you will fail. If you are having fun and this is all tongue in cheek…keep up the good work.

Randi is not a scientist….He is a magician. And a brilliant man and dedicated rationalist. He is one of the great men who confronts nonsense with common sense.

I thought Randi said he was a conjurer rather than a magician?

Anyhow here’s a video of a 2012 Tam meeting hosting the Million Dollar Challenge with James Randi in the Audience where Banacek make it’s very clear how the MDC is not only for psychics but for people claiming perpetual motion machines,etc…....

So until my claim of ‘‘over-unity’’ has been decently debunked, I would advise you not to imply my claim is nonsense wink stay cool

conjurer -magician whatever….do you feel better calling him a conjurer ? ok youre right !
I can see you think of yourself as the persecuted genius because you think that someone needs to DEBUNK your opus magnum…...you need to prove it works to the world. That is science….over-unity and free energy alas are not…...
I would advise you to listen to reason…..not to hug and caress nonsense !!!

Randi calls himself a conjurer because magic is of the supernatural.

As for my over-unity machine you seem to have jumped the gun in a most unskeptical manner.

I have not heard that Randi has any such rule. Can you provide a citation?
