The Center for Inquiry presents a James Randi Lecture on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at Portland’s First Unitarian Church (1101 SW 13th Ave).
James Randi exposes popularly-accepted fakery by discussing with his audience everything from ESP to dowsing, from academic frauds to faith healers. Randi reveals what really took place in the last three decades in the labs of various prestigious “think tanks” that verified a series of simple magicians tricks as genuine miracles, thus launching a world-wide plague of misinformation, the repercussions of which can still be felt today.
Admission is only $10 (tickets can be purchased online or at the door), and Friends of the Center get in free (arrive at 6:15 to grab your VIP seat). Lecture begins at 6:30pm.
