Yes, Randi has been doing this for years. So did some of the smarter ancient Greeks warn about the dangers of being sucked into god belief. That hasn’t stopped the proliferation of religious sects and godheads of one sort or another.

The more Randis and Derren Browns there are out there being able to convince media magnates that they are ‘good’ copy and that means reaching TV and live audiences, the better.

Again and again and again. That’s what is needed. Let’s face it, we can be very thick. We can believe rubbish because we are thick. We need to be told by debunkers all the time. So, yes, Yorker and I will be watching Brown as we have done with Randi – again and again and again.

Cheers
