1:00-5:30 PM -
Science, Magic, and Skepticism: A Natural Relationship
Workshop/Lectures & Demonstrations
Using discussion and demonstration, we'll explore the connection between magic and skepticism . Joining Jamy will be D.J. Grothe , magician, skeptic, and host of Point of Inquiry , CFI's radio show and podcast, and D.C.'s own Chip Denman, a founder of the National Capital Area Skeptics .
- D.J. Grothe, The History of Magic in Skepticism
- Jamy Ian Swiss, The Illusion of Psychic Powers
- Q&A on Magic, Skepticism, Science, and Reason - with Swiss, Grothe, and Denman.
7:30 PM - Show
Witness an amazing performance of baffling, unnerving, "mind reading" phenomena - accomplished with pure psycology, subtle influence, deft illusion, uncanny intuition, and a healthy dose of downright deception - what Jamy calls "sleight of mind."
If there was such a thing as psychic power, it would have to look like this! Come and see for yourself how five ordinary senses can convince you that somehow, some way - there must be a sixth.
