JAMES “The Amazing” RANDI Talk and Reception | CFI event Sept 27

JAMES “The Amazing” RANDI Talk and Reception | Centre for Inquiry
(Posted by request from CFI)

James Randi has an international reputation as a magician and escape artist, but today he is best known as the world's most tireless investigator and demystifier of paranormal and pseudoscientific claims.

Randi has pursued "psychic" spoonbenders, exposed the dirty tricks of faith healers, investigated homeopathic water "with a memory", and generally been a thorn in the sides of those who try to pull the wool over public's eyes in the name of the supernatural. He is the author of numerous books, including The Truth About Uri Geller, The Faith Healers, Flim Flam!, and An Encyclopedia of Claims, Frauds, and Hoaxes of the Occult and Supernatural. His lectures (Ted.com) and television appearances (Johnny Carson, Penn and Teller's Bullshit) have delighted and vexed audiences around the world.

Hear "The Amazing One" talk on his unique perspective on science, magic, and how even the smartest among us can easily be fooled, and support CFI Canada. An open reception (refreshments provided) will follow in the foyer area directly adjacent to the Courtyard Hall, where the talk is held.
Tuesday, September 27th 2011 at 7:00 pm, Courtyard Marriott
Tickets are only available through online purchase HERE.
Tickets WILL NOT be sold at the door. $25 General Public (+ticketing fee) $20 CFI Canada Members (+ticketing fee)
