Robert Lindblad beat James Randi at his Put Up Or Shut Up contest in 1992

A message to the The One Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge promoter James Randi you still owe me, Robert Lindblad, $10,000 from when I beat you at your contest called PUT UP OR SHUT UP in 1992 .... and you never put up the $10,000 you promised or shut up about your outright lie that psychics don't exist you then even raised the prize to a million and changed the name of the challenge after I won your challenge and being a magician you magically decided to hide that truth from everyone pretty easy to do when you choose what to tell people and not what to tell people ... as a magician your profession is to hide the truth and you have done so very well too bad you incorporated the outright lie that psychics do not exist in your act. And when you state that police have never mentioned that a psychic has ever solved a missing childs' case you know why ... it is because police never mention their informants whether that person is psychic or not however like a deceptive magician you leave that fact out of your statement... if you just stated that some psychics are fake but not all and I want to weed out the fakers you would sound better and it would make a lot more sense. Just visit my website where their are news articles and investigative documentary concerning my work that prove it.
You believe in James Randi professing that psychics do not exist. You have read his books and listened to him speak however he has created a very narrow point of view from which to view the subject he has created that psychics do not exist. So it being that you believe absolutely in what he is saying you know as an educated observer that evidence that is proven through investigation of a subject is undeniable.
Here is undeniable proof documented by investigative journalists:
The articles of Le Journal de Montreal 31-05-98 & 01-06-98 on my site are certifiably acceptable in a court of law as evidence. In the article of Le Journal de Montreal 31-05-98 I stated to the mother Saturday morning over the phone within two minutes of her call that her son who had been missing for near a month and a half had accidentaly drowned and in which body of water his corpse was. The next day they found his corpse floating in the body of water which I had pointed out to the mother the day before and this was printed in the Le Journal de Montreal of 01-06-98. When the mother called me she had asked if I heard of her sons' case. I said "No but I can help." She then filled me in on the details that he had been missing for near a month and a half and that police with hundreds of volunteers, divers, searh dogs, and helicopters had been searching daily since the day he went missing with no results as to what happened to him, whether he was living or dead, and his whereabouts. Within two minutes I told her that her son had accidentaly drowned and in which body of water his corpse was and the next day they found his corpse floating in the body of water I had pointed out to the mother.
Their is also another news article providing undeniable evidence concerning a dog I found in Lake Oswego, Oregon from here in Montreal.

to read it Google : I was crying I was excited I was just so grateful

James Randi founded CSICOP so that he could expand his cash influx and add some strength to his illusion even while off stage. Once again the evidence is clear in the investigative reports by J.E. and The Journal de Montreal who are investigators out to bust fraud artists, the S.O.S. investigative documentary I was on in Japan , and the news articles concerning the missing dog I found in Lake Oswego , Oregon in real time over the phone from here in Montreal were done by professional investigative reporters not people who were there to make friends or money. James Randi is not a professional investigator he is a magician who has made a very financialy healthy career out of telling people that psychics do not exist... and being a magician he gives himself the right to hide the truth as hiding the truth is integral to magicianship and since he is making a very healthy profit off his act - the act of stating that psychics do not exist - so it is all part of magicianship and part of his act and he is fine with that.
James Randis' Million Dollar Challenge is nothing more than a vaudeville act that keeps you focused on him making you ignore evidence provided by investigative journalists whos' job is to bust fraud artists, evidence provided by parents of missing children, and evidence provided by owners of missing pets from all over the world over that of an illusionist who has made a very financially profitable corporate enterprise out of the illusion he has created that of telling people that psychics do not exist.

You see how James Randi - the illusionist - has brainwashed you with his illusion - the illusion of making you believe that psychics do not exist, he has you believing in him so much that you are automatically willing to disbelieve testimonies from parents of missing children, police, investigative journalists and pet owners from across the Earth that have provided certifiable proof.

There can you see that you have been brainwashed by James Randi (an illusionist) - whos' job and ambition in life is to fool you - who has magically made you believe whatever he says no matter what weight of evidence their is that goes contrary to his act passing up clear and proven evidence to satisfy the philosophy in life he has created and fenced you in with .... I guess you need to hear it again : clear and proven evidence ... you can read it proven ... their is no denying what has been proven by professional investigative journalists, parents of missing children and pet owners from around the world ... yet James Randi has brainwashed you so much that you believe that if he did not say it, write about it, and you did not see it or hear it from him it can't be true even when ample proof has been provided professional investigative journalists, parents of missing children and pet owners from around the world. Don't you think that is strange. I hope you are not basing your life on the vaudeville act of an illusionist. I never discuss cases unless it is with parents and police.

Ps. If you really were psychic, or even had half a brain, you might have noticed a note at the bottom of the page.

So you are telling us you ARE psychic. OK, bring your proof here for review.

I'll give Robert this...
I haven't thought of Randi in ages, or re-read Flim-Flam in even longer. So I dug it out last night for another read through. Great stuff, as always.

Thanks Robert.

I could see how, in principle, a scam artist might be infuriated by his scam being revealed for what it is. I could also see how a narcissistic scam artist would blame everybody but themselves.

But.. I cannot see why I should give a damn about somebody I’ve never heard of before. It’s almost like their perceived fall from grace lacked the requisite elements of grace and falling.

I think this thread below says everything that needs to be said on this subject. Robert could not back anything he said. This was over 12 years ago.
