That's Right - One Million Dollar Challenge!

Apply Now:

Have you ever heard of The Million Dollar Challenge? Well, ladies and gentlemen, this big check could be yours! All you have to do is show proof of any or all of the following:

  • Gods
  • Ghosts
  • Demons (or demonic power)
  • Satan (or the devil, or any of the other 1,000 names for evil incarnate)
  • Psychic powers or Extra Sensory Perception (ESP)
  • Supernatural powers of any kind
  • Dowsing or Divining
  • Astrological predictions that actually come true and can be related to Astrology
  • ANY faith healing of ANY proven disease or medical condition that cannot be cured with modern medical science.
  • Humans exhibiting special powers - flying, levitating, combusting, being magnetized, or similar super-human ability
  • Telekinesis or Teleportation
  • Automatic drawing or writing
  • Resurrection of the dead
  • Spirit or Aura readings

Heck, you can even make up your own phenomenon that otherwise cannot be explained by scientific methods.

Many of our esteemed members swear up and down that they have seen, witnessed, heard about or read about one or more of the above. But none of them have come forward to prove so much as a cured hangnail.

Well, here's your chance! Just fill out the application and go get that million dollars! Come back here and write a hub about it even if you don't win. You still might make a few bucks just for trying.

Prove God Exists

Does God Exist?

Can You Prove That God Exists?

Here is your personal invitation to prove it and make a million bucks for doing it. Can we count the number of times that some believer here has claimed that God exists? They challenge us to disprove it all the time. But disproving it would get us nothing but a cup of coffee that we have to buy ourselves.

But if you have the proof for your claim that God exists, then just submit it to the James Randi Educational Foundation and collect your million dollar check today! Every religious zealot should be able to prove their gods exist, easy as pie, right?

Just a bit of an aside here: Atheists claim that they do not believe in a god or gods, they do NOT claim that a god or gods don't actually exist. Just that they don't believe that one exists.

If you have verifiable proof that any of the thousand and one (or more) gods actually exist, then you can be a Millionaire!

Do Ghosts or Spirits Exist?

Have You Ever Seen a Ghost?

Oh sure, there are lots of ghosts, goblins, spirits, and things that go bump in the night at Halloween. We've all seen them!

If you have proof of a real ghost, goblin, spook, spirit, or creepy emanation in a cemetery, then submit your proof right away! Just head on over to The Million Dollar Challenge at www.randi.org and fill out the simple online application.

Just check the search tool right here at HubPages and you will find at least a thousand Q&As or Forum posts, or hubs, that proudly proclaim that Aunt Bessie appeared at the foot of their beds one night and imparted the best recipe for chicken and dumplings ever! (Or a similar encounter with a ghost.)

Once you have proven your supernatural thing, you get to collect that check!

Are You Psychic?

Can You Predict the Future?

Well, if you can, then you already know if you have won that million dollars! You have seen that vault where they keep the money and you have visualized that check with your name on it! Go get it!

Heck, if you are actually psychic, you don't even need to go to the bother of proving it. You have probably already won the Power Ball lottery several times over and a measly million bucks is chump change for you.

But then you are missing out on the fun of showing the world how powerful and smart you are! Curious minds want to know how to read minds and become rich and famous too! Can't you give us a demonstration? You could even use the million dollar check to donate to your favorite charity and get a tax write off.

Do You Believe in Demons?

How about showing off your inner demon. I mean that demon is just sitting around in your body wreaking havoc by not baking cakes for gay couples, forcing you to root for Michelle Bachman, or causing you to get bad hair cuts. Or maybe he is constantly feeding you images of the new body you're going to get when you die and go to that lake of fire and be tortured forever if you don't change your ways. You love those sadistic images, don't you?

Well, put that demon to work making money for you! Have a real priest exorcise those demons right in front of the judges for the paranormal and grab on for dear life! After turning your head around three times, you can get chiropractic care with some of those big bucks you'll get when you cash that check!

At least you'll be able to send your clothes to the cleaners to get all that green pea soup cleaned out from your dress.

And Just Plain Stupid Human Tricks

You can apply and try to get the million smackeroos just by doing ordinary everyday things like using wires to look for water or as some people call them, "divining rods".

If your body suddenly turns magnetic and you keep getting attacked by push pins flying around and pricking your skin, you can try out for the prize.

If you simply learn how to thwart gravity and suddenly start levitating all over the city, surely they will be able to prove that you have superhuman powers and you need the money. Just don't be landing on the White House lawn or roof.

Do You Have the Power to Heal the Sick?

Faith Healing

What About Faith Healing?

This one should be a slam dunk. Just about every religion claims to be able to heal the sick. Some even claim to be able to resurrect the dead! There have been members here who claim that faith healing is the real deal. They say that people don't need to thank their health care team because, well, because, with enough faith, the body will heal itself.

There was a big deal many years ago about Asian doctors who could operate and take out tumors without modern surgery. They just prayed and reached right in to someone's body and ripped out what appeared to be a liver or something. Maybe we don't hear from them anymore because they went and got that million dollar check by proving that faith heals. Now they live in a condo on the beach somewhere.

This could be you too! If you have proof that faith heals the sick and dying, then you can get a beach condo or even a yacht!

What do you think?

Are you going to be the first million dollar winner in this offer?

  • Yes! I can prove the supernatural exists!
  • No, I can prove it, but I don't need the money. (or fame, or credibility)
  • No, I can't prove any of the above, but I feel the presence of the supernatural all the time!
  • Maybe, but it's easier to just believe and have faith than to actually present facts and events.
  • The check is a fake offer just to get people to make fools of themselves.
  • None of the above.
  • I've got 3 chances - Fat, Slim, and No

@Jodah - Aha! You saw through my clever ruse! Another commenter did not and they were deleted with a stroke of my keyboard. Hahahaha.

@diogenes - You wrote that? I may have to search for a copy. Looks like some good reading there. It's really tough dealing with facts and logic through life. That's why we have whimsical things!

Well, I can see the future.....at 7.30 tonight I am going to a friends house! does that count? LOL! I know its not real, but if they did put that bounty on it, and someone did come up with an answer I would love to be a fly on the wall when I saw their faces!

I've heard of the Randi Challenge. They have never had to pay off. Randi has said that a lot of people are very sincere when they claim psychic powers. They are stunned to find that they can't do it in the experiment. Voted up ++

Nell Rose 19 months ago from England

Hi Austin, lol! no never watched it the first time as I had to go out, but yep watched it now! won't spoil it, but...to be honest I did think, well..

But the funny thing is that the joke is on James Randi, he has been getting on my nerves for many years, the video made no sense anyway, what's with the computer stuff? yes I did watch till the end, and to be honest he has no idea! I have been psychic since the day I took my first look at the world, I have proved it in front of loads of people including my friends who think I am 'freaky'!

Long story short, I have predicted many things I dreamed about, including a murdered boy back in the 80s where I told the police I 'saw' where the boy had been murdered and thrown in a river, and also told them what the man who did it looked like, its on record,......so....James Randy can suck it up! as for my friend, she lived in America, but always came over ever so often, this was before cell phones, I always knew to the second when she got in her house back in the UK, it used to freak her out. many more things too. the trouble is, you can't ever control it in a lab, and thats' what james randi knows, interesting that he is keeping on about it even now, nell

Just to add about my first comment, didn't want to go into detail as I was interested in your hub, but thought, ah well what's the point of telling the truth, but once again the irritating little man got to me! lol!

I think you should give it a go! Whatdo you have to lose?


Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 19 months ago from England

I couldn't do it under those conditions, especially after I thump randi on the nose! LOL!


Austinstar profile image

Austinstar 19 months ago from Somewhere in the universe Author

Actually, Randi is retired now. You have to go through the foundation.


Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 19 months ago from England

The trouble is, when people say the word psychic it sounds so 'out there' but if they said unknown science then perhaps they would study it properly. I love science, and never ever say psychic as nobody knows how the universe works really, I suppose its one of those things that if they can't do it, then they don't believe it, thanks, nell

Austinstar 19 months ago from Somewhere in the universe Author

Well, I do have to say that my two moments of psychic experiences can in no way be reproduced. It just seems to happen randomly.


Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 19 months ago from England

That's it exactly! no one knows how it works so how can we reproduce it? would love to know about your experiences though!

James Randi has been caught lying and faking stuff himself in attempts at arch-debunking. Don't take my word for it- do some serious research on him and his org. and you'll see for yourself. That million dollar reward hucksterism is a sick joke.


Alastar Packer profile image

Alastar Packer 19 months ago from North Carolina

Maybe that comment was too harsh. Here's a counter-proposal. I'll pay any arch-debunker $500 to spend one night alone on top of the world famous paranormally active Brown Mountain here in NC. Plenty of occulted symbols on the granite out-cropping's to keep them company along with the mystery lights and objects.

Hmm, although I mean it, don't take that offer literally, as it probably goes against HP's TOS. Too bad, though.


Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 19 months ago from England

Thanks Austin, I will take a look, have a great day!


Austinstar profile image

Austinstar 19 months ago from Somewhere in the universe Author

Alastar - I did read that the money is in escrow. It is a real offer. The kink is that it is really impossible to prove the paranormal. Houdine tried it and if he couldn't do it, no one can!

I would seriously take you up on that offer to spend the night at Brown Mountain. I have spent the night in more than one cemetery and "haunted" hotel looking for ghosts, LOL! Still looking!

Bad thing is, you would probably expect people to spend their own money to get to NC. That's a deal breaker for a lot of people. But I have spent the night at the most haunted hotel in Austin!


Alastar Packer profile image

Alastar Packer 19 months ago from North Carolina

Your cool, Austinstar. How'd things go at the hotel? Apologize, but James Randi gets my goat. Let him debunk this one: It was taken by police video in the GA foothills. It is a hairy biped crossing the road at 30 miles hour. That's 2 mph faster than any human has ever achieved. Very short vid this but there's a longer version too. https://youtu.be/xmr-cDD0Hdk

Austinstar 19 months ago from Somewhere in the universe Author

I've seen that video. I still wonder why ALL these types of photos and videos are so blurry. But that aside, a cryptid would not be a "supernatural" thing. If a cryptid were to ever be caught, or documented, it would still be of the "natural" world. It would be a mutation surely, but that doesn't mean it is "ethereal" or of the spirit world or even an alternate universe. It would probably have flesh and blood of some sort.

My hotel adventure produced some "orb" photos, but nothing that I would actually think of as a "ghost".

I have written a number of hubs about "Texas ghosts and such". One of these hubs is here - http://austinstar.hubpages.com/hub/East-Texas-Ghos...

Alastar Packer 19 months ago from North Carolina

Who's to say that there's not a paranormal/alternate universe aspect to some of the BF phenomenon? I've seen and heard from very credible people on that possibility. But that's beside the point. Wouldn't a tall hairy biped running across a road faster than any man not be of the accepted "natural" world. Until we know for sure it could go either way, imho of course. There are a good many- truly convincing videos out there on ghosts and such. I'm investigating two child spirit cases in this county right now and let me say, at the very least, they are amazing and certainly not hoaxes.

Seeing/experiencing is truly believing.

I have seen ghosts, but I am not sure how I could prove it. It would be nice to win the million dollars though.

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"

This was Richard Dawkins in a foreword in his book, "The God Delusion" in a dedication to Douglas Adams.

Dawkin's books are a must read ..

I watch Richard's videos on YouTube - He gets hate mail from Christians. These are so hilarious. Also, The God Delusion in on YouTube too. He's an amazing person.

Hi Diogenes, hope you see this. I do like that quote. If I may ask you sir, what do you think of the Icelandic people? If you answer you'll understand the question.:)

What constitutes scientific proof? Just because we can't turn something on like a light switch does not mean it does not exist.

Please check out Edgar Cayce and or the Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE). Also see hubs, "My Telepathic Experiences" and "Near Death Experiences and What They Mean."


Austinstar profile image

Austinstar 16 months ago from Somewhere in the universe Author

Jay, for some reason, your comment went to the spam folder that I only check once a week.

At any rate, the purpose of the hub is to direct those who have "telepathic experiences" or NDEs or whatever supernatural thing, to the institute that examines these sorts of things.

They are the ones offering the Million bucks for proof. If you or anyone you know can prove that supernatural things exist, then please do so.
