← Richard Dawkins interviews Derren Brown

I love watching Derren Brown reveal how easy it is to fool people. (Or, more accurately, to help people to fool themselves.) I feel like he's the James Randi of his generation, much like James Randi became the Harry Houdini of his generation.

The parallel between the trickery of psychics and the trickery of priests is clear as day, and yet so many people can't see it and get offended when it gets pointed out. It's all really depressing, actually.
