European Tour
Written by Brandon K. Thorp   

June 08, 2010 — Impromptu vid shot with a camera we're only just learning to use. We are in a lounge at Miami Int'l Airport, waiting on our Swiss Air flight to Helsinki, where Randi will make the first appearance of his Sleep of Reason Tour, 2010. The audio is a little low, but bear with it. Much more on the tour in the days ahead.

Friends,

If you really believe that pushing back against the purveyors of harmful nonsense is a fight worth having, then we need your help today.

Like most non-profits, the majority of our annual support comes during the critical year-end period and we couldn't continue fighting charlatans and promoting critical thinking about pseudoscience and the paranormal without it. Please donate now to help us meet our funding goals going into 2013.

And now, for a limited time, you can actually double the impact of your giving thanks to a generous JREF supporter who has pledged to match your donation dollar-for-dollar—if you act today. That means your gift will go twice as far—providing more free resources to educators to teach scientific skepticism, supporting more grassroots campaigns to fight charlatanry, and taking on more public figures and companies who promote dangerous nonsense.

We do all this because of the work Randi has been doing for decades to make the world a better place — a world where paranormal fakers are on notice, and the beguiled have a place to turn to get the truth. Randi’s tireless work inspires us to keep pushing back against the nonsense, and makes me unapologetic about asking for your help. The fight is worth it.

Please take a moment right now to double your impact and to help keep the JREF on firm footing.

On behalf of Randi and the rest of our team, thank you in advance for your support.

Latest JREF News

Dear Friends,

We are thrilled to announce that The Amaz!ng Meeting (TAM) returns in just a few months: July 10-13, 2014 at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

Our theme this year – Skepticism and the Brain  is focused on the cognitive and brain sciences and how they inform the project of skepticism. Keynote speakers include the acclaimed philosopher, cognitive scientist, and best selling author Daniel Dennett and Scientific American Editor-in-Chief Mariette DiChristina. Other speakers include neurophilosopher Patricia Churchland, Australia's Dr. Karl, Evolution & Human Behavior Editor-in-Chief Robert Kurzban, Brainwashed: The Seductive Appeal of Mindless Neuroscience authors Scott Lilienfeld and Sally Satel, M.D., influential memory researcher Elizabeth Loftus, clinical neurologist Steven Novella, M.D., immunologist Paul Offit, M.D., National Center for Science Education's Eugenie Scott, Skeptic Editor-in-Chief Michael Shermer, psychologists and best selling authors Carol Tavris and Richard Wiseman, and many, many more!

The inimitable George Hrab returns as our Master of Ceremonies. As Pacific Standard magazine recently described, Hrab's "vaudeville-style" has set the tone for "what is perhaps the world’s preeminent gathering of self-proclaimed skeptics."

This annual celebration of critical thinking is an unparalleled opportunity to make like-minded friends, enjoy some of the brightest minds on issues important to skeptics, and leave with tools for spreading a helpful and educational message to those who might be hurt by charlatans and unfounded belief. TAM has become the must-go-to event for skeptics and science advocates.

James Randi and over a thousand other like-minded folks for four days of fun, friendship, and critical thinking!
