Do you believe that James van Praagh is a fake or has he true gifts?
I’ve been reading a lot of his books lately and I remain a healthy sceptic. I would like some opinions on this.

No one has such an ability; he’s a liar.

I just posted a question about him and whether people think he’s truly psychic or a con artist. You can check it out in my questions on my profile here, if you want. It has a link to a video that shows him struggling to come up with a reading for someone. It’s quite pathetic.

All he has to do is win the Randi million by passing tests.
If you want the truth, you test. Truth does not fear testing, but demands it.
Edit: All predictions made in the Bible have no other independent conformation. They only get fulfilled in the Bible. Some don’t even happen in that book at all. Like the Nile drying up and Damascus being leveled.

Can you review this text written in English please?
Hi folks! I just wrote a text in English, but I’m not an English native speaker, I’m from Brazil, so I would like you to review these 4 paragraphs and change the parts where there is any mistake… Could someone do this for me please? I really need this help! 😀
The text is the following:
Psychics: earn reputation and get a million dollars
Do you have psychic abilities? Can you talk to dead people? Can you predict the future? Can you read cards, palms, etc? You’re not the only one. There are hundreds and hundreds of people who claim to have a little knowledge beyond this world. Among the most famous psychics are Sylvia Browne, Rosemary Altea, James Van Praagh, John Edward, etc. They appear to be insulted when people say that what they do is a cruel farse. This sort of behavior can be noted in the following paragraph, said by Linda Rossi, Bussiness Operations Manager at Sylvia Browne Corporation: “It is so sad that many in the public will afford any other professional such as doctors, lawyers, and even law enforcement the right to be human and to be wrong, but not Sylvia.”
According to what they say, it seems they have no opportunities to prove that what they do is real. Let’s find out if that’s true.
James Randi is a skeptic, magician and demystifier of paranormal and pseudoscientific claims. Moreover, he’s the founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation. The James Randi Educational Foundation is an educational resource on paranormal, pseudoscientific, and the supernatural. The JREF organization offers a one-million-dollar prize to anyone who can prove any paranormal, occult and supernatural event or power of any kind, under proper observing conditions. Here we go: this is an extraordinary chance to prove that what you do is real, whatever it is. You might talk to the deceased, predict events by interpreting celestial signs, know everything about someone you have never met before, doesn’t matter, if you have any psychic ability, you can be tested by the JREF and, if you have the psychic powers that you claim you have, you will get a million dollars and earn reputation!
Is there something better? I guess the main thing a psychic would like to have is a good reputation as an internationally renowed spiritual medium! All you have to do is visit randi.org and fill out the form to be tested by the James Randi Educational Foundation.

I only see one mistake:
“farse” should be “farce” (in American English)
