I was baffled by the frenzied claim
A pair of child’s football boots were hanging on the wall of my lawyer’s office. I knew he didn’t have kids, so the obvious explanation was that the boots represented a schooldays triumph.
Much of science seems to me to revolve around the smallest fragments of evidence, spinning ludicrous stories from them. The archaeologist who finds a lump of bone and invents a family connection between baboons and humans, is no different from the medicine man who terrifies his tribe by proclaiming that thunderstorms prove the gods are angry.
I cannot understand why most archaeologists ignore the biggest question about humans: if we have been around, with our clever hands and powerful brains, for 200,000 years, why didn’t we invent civilisation until the time of Moses?
In other words, how could we spend 98 per cent of our history in idleness, and then cram so many empires and great religions and earth-shattering discoveries into the final two per cent?
Human beings have no doubt always been ferociously intelligent, wildly ambitious, amazingly inventive, astonishingly versatile. It’s impossible for me to believe that nothing of note, except a few cave paintings, was created by our race throughout almost all its history.
There must have been many Michelangelos, many Einsteins, many Caesars – long, long before the civilisations we know about. The true task of archaeology should be to dig these stories out. Because if humans really did invent civilisation in the times of Moses, then there’s only one sane conclusion to be drawn: humans were not around for long before Moses.
And that theory, oddly enough, is the one you’ll find in the Bible. Visit Uri at www.urigeller.com and e-mail him at email@example.com

“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.”

“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”
