I was baffled by the frenzied claims of French archaeologists who thought they had discovered the Missing Link earlier this month. And I doubled up with laughter when sceptical scientists retorted that the fossilised African skull belonged not to a pre-human ancestor of ours, seven million years ago, but to an ordinary gorilla.
The professors and the sceptics think this means that paranormal forces are a figment of the imagination – but they couldn’t be more wrong. I believe deeply that so-called ‘scientific proofs’ are a trick of the mind. Yes, I could walk into a lab and bend a spoon: I have done it many times. But who would be convinced? A few scientists… who would probably convince themselves I had fooled them. Even if I bent 50 spoons, in 50 labs, the rest of the world wouldn’t accept the truth. Instead, 5,000 more scientists would be challenging me to bend spoons in their labs.
The sad fact is that most human beings are reluctant to believe anything that the rest of the world doesn’t believe.
That’s what makes the job of Amnesty International and the Red Cross so
difficult: for months their investigators have been trying to warn the world that allied soldiers were committing atrocities against Iraqi suspects in prisons. No one listened… until suddenly everyone started listening.
Most people are reluctant to admit they believe in UFOs… even though many have seen the evidence with their own eyes. The Mexican air force, for instance, is desperately downplaying the idea that spacecraft from other worlds or other dimensions are patrolling our skies – even though their own pilots filmed 11 UFOs surrounding a military jet earlier this year. The pictures show, in crystal detail, almost a dozen luminous spots moving at impossible speeds. At first the pilots thought the spacecraft were private jets flown by drug smugglers. The black box recorder reveals one of the crew started yelling, ‘We’re not alone! This is so weird!’ The radar operator who first spotted the UFOs, Lieutenant German Marin, later told reporters: “I think they’re completely real. Was I afraid? Yes.” Anyone who flies to holiday destinations abroad puts their faith in men and women like Lieutenant Marin. We trust them with our lives. Yet most people find it impossible to believe what the air crew all say they saw – even though they have videotape to back up the claims.
I have learned you can never hope to make everyone believe you. That’s why I believe it is so important always to tell the truth.

"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."

"There is no spoon!"
"The world needs your amazing talents. I need them"
"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."

"The Geller Effect is one of those "para" phenomena which changed the world of phusics. What the most outstanding physicists of the last decades of this country colud grasp only as theoretical implication, Uri brought as fact into everyday life.."

"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"
