@artilectzed It doesn't look like it's made the media yet, but I have a friend who knows him, and she posted about it.

@Ricardus Penn Jillette said something on his :birdsite: a few minutes ago, too :(


Well crap.

I didn't always agree with him, but the statement "extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof" has shaped my life.

@Ricardus Noooooooooo! Oh bummer! Wow, he was such an interesting guy. :(

James Randi shaped my trust in science and in a healthy skepticism when I was younger; these eventually helped me out of my religious fanaticism.

Rest in peace. 😔
