[media] Michael Shermer

Alessandro Segalini's picture

Skeptic Magazine founder Michael Shermer takes us on a hilarious romp through the strange claims we humans put forth as truth——from alien encounters to Virgin Mary sightings on pizza pies, to hidden messages revealed while playing "Stairway to Heaven" backwards——and explains the evolutionary and cognitive basis for these lapses in reason.

(Recorded February 2006 in Monterey, CA. Duration: 17:29)
