James Randi is embarking on a whirlwind cross-Canada lecture tour hosted by the Center for Inquiry Canada, starting in Vancouver. Randi will be signing books and speaking on human psychology and how easily it can be manipulated to make people believe in psychics, UFOs, ghosts, and other paranormal and pseudo-scientific claims.
This unique and provocative lecture is not only educational, but highly entertaining. It attracts persons of all educational and social backgrounds and provides a rational perspective on the seemingly paranormal and otherwise unexplained happenings in our day-to-day life. Randi illustrates how a “politically-correct” attitude has blinded most scientists, who should know better, to the fact that they are not proficient at detecting fraud, often managing to fool themselves when the prize is sufficiently attractive. And he puts up a million-dollar award as bait!
