Michael Shermer to Appear at Ohlone College PDF Print E-mail
Latest JREF News
Written by Jeffrey Wagg   

Michael Shermer is a genuine ghostbuster, a relentless crusader against superstition, and pseudoscience. In this lecture, he discusses his investigation of paranormal claims and other unexplained phenomena and what makes us believe in them.

  • Is ESP real?

  • Does “alternative” medicine really work?

  • What causes mass delusion?

  • What’s up with UFOs sightings?

  • Why are people so gullible?

  • What’s the evidence for Near-Death Experiences, Alien Abductions, Recovered Memories, Creationism, Holocaust Denial, Race, or God?

Based on his bestselling book Why People Believe Weird Things, psychologist Michael Shermer applies scientific reason to these and many other questions in a witty talk that has been described as a no-holds barred attack on the pseudoscience and nonsense of our day.

Michael Shermer is available for interviews prior to the event. Please check out the web page, and/or email Sheldon W. Helms at sheldon@ohlone.edu for more information.
