As a teenager, I was a member of the Australian Skeptics. I always used to love reading their newsletters, replete with scientific take-downs of psychics and other charlatans (since 1980, they have offered a cash prizeÂ to anyone who proves they have psychic powers). So I’m delighted to be speaking to the Canberra branch of the Australian Skeptics tonight – Friday 13th.
By coincidence (or was it?), I cycled to work today listening to James Randi talkingÂ to Scientific American about his $1 million prize for “anyone who can show, under proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power”. Well worth a listen.
