The fact remains that Mr. Geller was NOT asked by NASA to use his wondrous
powers to help them. That was my original point, among many.
NEW POINTS: correspondents have reminded me of other promises made by Mr.
Geller. Here are just a few.....
CLAIM: In 1988, Mr. Geller said he would launch a Health Cosmetic line, a
perfume called, "Uri" (with a real crystal in the bottle! Wow!) and a
fast-food restaurant chain.
FACT: We don't have healthy cosmetics, Uri perfume (avec or sans crystal)
or Uriburgers. Not yet.
CLAIM: He said that he has a leisure wear clothing company that makes
"about $20 million a year," and he expects it to grow to "about $100
million a year."
FACT: Mr. Geller may very well have such a company going. However, it
does not show up anywhere I've looked.
CLAIM: Mr. Geller says that with the use of his "powers" he has "destroyed
cancer cells" for scientists.
FACT: This accomplishment is unknown to cancer researchers.
CLAIM: The South Korean government gave him $10,000,000 "to locate
FACT: The South Korean government is unaware of having paid Mr. Geller for
anything, let alone finding tunnels.
CLAIM: A Japanese company gave him $1,000,000 to find gold in Brazil.
FACT: This may be true. No evidence has been offered.
And on it goes..... JR
