Affidavit of Paul Kurtz
IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUSTICE 1992 G.395
QUEEN’S BENCH DIVISION
URI GELLER Plaintiff
- PROMETHEUS BOOKS INC
- PROMETHEUS BOOKS (UK) (a firm)
- EDDINGTON HOOK LIMITED
- VICTOR J. STENGER Defendants
- I am the manager of the First Defendants, a corporate body registered in the United States, and make this affidavit on its behalf.
- The only part of the First Defendant took in the publication and distribution of “Physics and Psychics” was to receive it from the Fourth Defendant, edit the manuscript, and arrange for its publication and distribution in the United Kingdom with the Second Defendants pursuant to an arrangement so to do.
- Prior to publication, neither I nor anyone employed by the First Defendants were aware that there were any errors in “Physics and Psychics” and I never knew that it contained the words complained of until I heard from the solicitors for the Plaintiff.
- I now understand that it is untrue that the Plaintiff was ever arrested in Israel and I unreservedly apologise to him both on behalf of myself and the First Defendants.
- I and the First Defendants hereby undertake to take no steps further to publish or distribute the said book in the United Kingdom so long as it contains the words complained of. Indeed, neither I nor the First Defendants have taken any such steps since the error was pointed out to me.
- This affidavit is made pursuant to Section 4 of the Defamation Act of 1952.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”
Tannens Magic Blog
“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
