Skepticism isn't "working". I've had numerous self-proclaimed skeptics tell me how that Darren Brown guys stuff was legit, when it clearly isn't.

What I've noticed is that people reject supernatural, and paranormal claims, and accept natural ones, or purportedly scientific ones. Using a standard that merely superficially draws a line at supernatural and natural. This is not skepticism, nor rationalism.

On another note, this guy clearly is an RD fan, he echoed things RD has said.
