The Amazing James Randi Destroying Pseudo Science And Pseudo Intellectuals Alike

This is a two hour lecture delivered by James Randi, representing his Jref Foundation, from Princeton University in 2001. Randi is a professional magician who has dedicated his retirement from show business to exposing frauds, tricksters, faith healers, psychics, mentalists, and other confidence schemers. He's exposed Peter Popoff, Uri Geller, Sylvia Browne, Jon Edwards, and dozens of others. In this lecture, he'll show us all personally how we ourselves can become easy prey for the hustlers who've learned the art of misdirection and recognizing our own ability to allow our personal assumptions to lead us astray.

  1. I wonder what Randi would say to your assertion that turning off a light bulb when not in use fails to save energy.

    I'm pretty sure what he would say about your blind denial of the scientific facts, and your accusation that the science is based on a political agenda.
