What really boggles the mind, however, among all the misleading and simply
wrong details in the Psychic News story, is the claim by Geller that he
"now believes he has found . . . the Holy Ark of the Covenant." I suggest
that Geller has been watching too many Harrison Ford films of late.
The Psychic News story quoted Geller as hoping that "last month's verdict
in his favour would be the first in a series of such judgements which
would `set the record straight.'" He can believe me when I say that I,
too, want to set the record straight. We just have different notions
Will there ever be a claim preposterous enough to dismay Geller's
disciples? No, though he's trying hard for that goal. There was the
flying saucer named "IS," the giant Hawk-god Horus who spoke English,
bringing the astronaut's camera back from the moon, stopping Big Ben,
repairing Russian satellites by psychokinesis, and now he's bringing us
the Holy Ark of the Covenant. I ask you, where would we be without him?
