Assuming this was even possible....how would you even begin to prove such a thing?? It's just silly. Great publicity for the 'clairvoyant' I guess...

Nothing at all has been heard from anyone that I can find. Harry wouldn't even talk to Bess from Beyond the Veil. Why would he be inspired to chat with this guy?

Well, if she felt that she could not reach him, she could not reach him. That is it.

I can only imagine how she might have felt, showing up for one thing and then realizing it was something else. Question, was Randi expecting the spirit of Houdini to squeeze into the the three envelopes, read what is written, then squeeze out and relay the information? That sounds silly to me. It actually reads like a conjuring trick.

Tell you what, if I go to a house to do a palm reading event, and I am then asked to identify what is in 3 envelopes at an event that is not at all as was it was explained to me, I would not be happy, and in that state, I might not be able to do what I normally do.

I'm not at all relating what I do to what she does, but we are both human, and I know that being put into a negative emotional state affects doing what I do. I believe this holds true for many people. Additionally, if I were in a room with people I believed were negative towards me and were putting me in a bad state, I too would leave.

Tony:

You miss understand.

Kim Dennis contacted Jeff and family claiming she could reach anyones relatives including Houdini and his dead mother, and was already doing so according to her.

The three questions in the first envelope were for her to open and answer, if she wanted. She was told before she came that there would be questions asked to verify Houdini's presence. She is writing a book and wants to cash in on Houdini's name.
She will contact YOUR dead relatives by phone for $150.00 each and holds mediumistic seminars in hotels for $75.00 a ticket.

She also claimed she was getting messages from Jeff's mother who died recently. Bonnie Blood, their daughter was excited to hear from grandma... a sad sight to see. Before the questions were brought up, Dennis asked what questions we wanted to ask of Houdini. We also had a couple of letters signed by Houdini that he would of known about if she contacted him. She backed away from this also. Trust me she was treated kindly, but firmly, and was told questions would be asked to confirm ahead of time. She was just in over her head, and had no contact with Houdini, ever as she claimed. That is why she bolted. This is not an entertainer, by any definition of the term, in everyones opinion who was there!

Tony;

As you know from my other posts I am not a die hard debunker, have even on occasion been critical of Randi, but those of Kim Dennis's ilk do not bring respect or honor to our field and she is well beyond the pale, and we are bound to protect the Houdini legacy as well.

Looks like Randi is having a problem with three questions himself Smile
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMrgr1yR3k0
It seems that they announced a challenger for the JREF money did not show up when it appears in reality no one was ever slated to take the test, even though it was advertised as that. Then Randi claims there WAS a challenger. The Classic "Bait and Switch"....
He should have taken the lady's approach and left without the possibility of incriminating himself. Smile

Dick:

This sheds a different light on the situation, you should have included some of this in the press release, it would have had a totally different affect, at least on me.

Would have, but some of was personal and some of it would have made the release too long and then it just gets cut.

In 1929 Arthur Ford gave the decoded message to Bess ... To deny it is nonsense. It was reported in all the reputable papers of the day!!!!

There is no question that Ford presented Bess with the decoded message. The question is how did Ford get the message. No one but you believes that it came from the spirit world. Everyone else, including Ford's biographer believed he obtained it through nefarious and purely naturalistic methods. In other words, Ford was a fraud.

If he was truly a conduit to the other side why did he keep books of personal information on his clients disguised as volumes of Poetry? He was a scam artist Slim and you seem to be his last and final mark.

Payne ... How does one become Ford's biographer???? Think about it mr smartie Smile As if Ford said ... YOU are my biographer ... How about I say I"M YOUR BIOGRAPHER after you pass on (or even now) .. Does that make sense?
Paynes biographer says he's full of it??????

A magician said that Ford had a newspaper clipping from the 60's he found in the 70's ... How does that prove he is a fraud in the 20's ... You repeat too much of what you read on pseudo-skeptic sites..

No one needs permission from the subject of a biography to write that biography and thus become their biographer.

You didn't know this? I know it's a tough one to figure out...but still.....the process is pretty much self evident.

Interesting what you'll believe without any facts whatsoever .. Even Bob can't defend that concept.
