Michael Shermer: The pattern behind self-deception



James Randi on Critical Thinking at TEDBy: Barry Belmont
James Randi is an amazing man. It is not an understatement to say he is amongst the greatest heroes that has ever lived. He has single-handedly done more to promote skepticism and critical thinking than any other person in all of history. He has inspired individuals like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris, Penn & Teller and Michael Shermer, Carl Sagan, Stephen Jay Gould, and countless other supporters of rational dialogue. Here is his wonderful talk about how we can easily be duped and what the harm actually is of so-called “harmless” superstitions like homeopathy and psychic abilities.
