James Randi challenge[edit]

James Randi, a stage magician and scientific skeptic debunked claims in Licauco's Philippine Daily Inquirer column, "Inner Awareness" on October 24, 2006. Randi, inter alia, challenged Licauco to apply for the $1 million prize from his James Randi Educational Foundation, since Licauco claimed that "he has paranormal abilities".

Licauco wrote in his Daily Enquirer column that "I don’t have to prove to Randi that ESP (extra sensory perception) ability (such as telepathy, clairvoyance and telekinesis) exists. This has been proven scientifically long ago." He also claimed that Randi "participated in the cover-up of a botched scientific investigation of Michel Gauquelin’s conclusion that there was a significant statistical correlation between birth dates of athletes and the position of Mars in the heavens". Licauco also said that "Randi’s group denounced Gauquelin’s finding only to eat their words later. To save face, they went so far as to manipulate scientific data to conform to their preconceived notion that astrology was pure hogwash".[2][3]
