An engrossing chat between the man who’s stage shows and TV programs are as entertaining as they revealing about age-old manipulation and illusion techniques, used by spiritualists, religion and all confidence tricksters.
This footage is taken from the unedited version of Dawkins’ ‘Enemies of reason’ TV program, also available on DVD from richarddawkins.net
Mind readers and Barnum statements:
It’s a lucrative business:
Half the trick happens after the illusion:
Don’t block the energy:
Don’t you be tarot-fied:
Where does your scepticism come from?
