      Hi Dan
      This is surely a red herring, but anyway...
      a) What is your source?  Where does the attestation to mr magnet's abilities that you provide come from?  (and what is its date)
      b)  "Briefly said, he has successfully demonstrated his authenticity to the world."
      >"... so far has avoided a scientific inspection
      of Magola´s abilities)."
      I don't think so!  Not until a papers detailing close experiments have been published in a reputable journals, and its finding replicated and published.
      Keep working at that bs filter Dan!

      Here is a blurb on the Magnetic Man's authenticity:

      The abilities of Miroslaw Magola are known to the most hard-line
      skeptics on both sides of the planet. Mr. James Randi, who has spent a
      large part of his life and a lot of money to de-mask paranormal
      phenomenon, does not dispute the authenticity of Magola´s talents (and
      so far has avoided a scientific inspection of Magola´s abilities). The
      American James Randi Education Foundation (J.R.E.F) has examined unusual
      occurrences across the world. The author of this book has demonstrated
      his talents under the scrutiny of such well known scientists as Prof.
      Abhaya N. Deva, Ph. D. Roland Charczuk, Prof. Dr. Dipl. Psych. Toni
      Forster, Prof. Alex Schneider M. Sc, Dr. U.E. Hasler, Nene von Muralt,
      M. D. Jakob Boesch, Prof. Dr. Konstatin Korotkov, Dr. Paola Giovetti,
      Rainer Holbe, Dr. Serge Kahili King, Prof. Dr. Erlendur Haraldsson,
      Prof. Peter Mulacz, Edgar Wunder, Jack Houck, Elda Hartley, Prof. Robert
      Ritch, Dr. Alexander Imich, M. D. Ph. D Barbara G. Koopman to name but a
      few. The prominent Russian specialist for Kirlian photography, Dr.
      Dobruskin, has photographed Magola’s bio-plasmic field during his
      demonstrations. Magola has also been the subject of countless interviews
      and has had his photo on the front page of the world-renowned magazine
      for paranormal phenomenon’s, Encounters.

      The European scientific community has also turned their attention to the
      unique abilities of Magola, especially Dr.Dr. Walter v. Lacaudou from
      the university in Freiburg. In 1997 Dr. M. Karger of the German Max
      Plank Institute examined Magola´s talents and Prof. Dr. Dr.
      Ruhenstroth-Bauer of the same institute has proposed to include Magola
      in his project.

      The authors’ rare gift is also well known to the public through
      television. Together with Uri Geller, the most celebrated paranormalist
      on the planet, he took part in a live show for the British ITV on the
      subject of paranormal phenomenon. That show had over 13 million viewers
      in the UK alone, TV shows with Magola have also been broadcast by SF1
      and Telebasel (Switzerland),RTL (Luxemburg) and PRO7 (Germany) among

      Briefly said, he has successfully demonstrated his authenticity to the
