Psychics fail $2 Million challenge

Australian Psychics were given the chance to win $2,000,000 on an Australian Television game show last night. Needless to say, their failure to even come close to the big prize was laughable.

In fact Psychics around the world have the opportunity to win US$1,000,000 from the James Randi Educational Foundation http://www.randi.org/research/challenge.html

Australian Psychics can test their skills with the Australian Skeptics $100,000 prize http://www.skeptics.com.au/features/challenge.htm

These cash prizes have been on offer for years and still remain unclaimed. Why? Because psychics can't do what they claim. They lie, cheat and take advantage of other people for financial gain.

The full story has been moved to my new blog "You've got to be joking" http://yourjoking.blogspot.com/

Child killer Yurko pleads guilty

The anti-vax liars have been claiming victory in the case of convicted child killer, Alan Yurko. After errors were found in the autopsy, a judge ordered that Yurko be re-tried for the death of his baby.

Importantly, judge Lawson said "I also find that there is no reliable medical evidence that links the death directly to a vaccine."

What's more, Alan Yurko then pleaded "no-contest" to manslaughter and was sentenced to 6 years and 125 days in jail. This was the amount of time he had served in prison on the earlier charge of murder, so having served the time of his sentence, he was released from jail.

There are some important facts to be aware of with the latest developments in the Yurko case:
  1. The vaccine reaction defence was thrown out. It was not a factor in the judge's decision.
  2. Yurko was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to more than 6 years jail.
  3. Yurko was not cleared of guilt and freed from jail, he was released after time served.
  4. Yurko is a convicted child-killer.

For those who may have believed some of the anti-vax liar's hype, I suggest you visit the web-site of the National Council Against Health Fraud www.ncahf.org for reliable information on vaccine safety. Australians should visit the Australian Council Against Health Fraud www.acahf.org.au
