R4R Speaker Series: PSI vs. SCIENCE

Please join us and tell fellow skeptics!

PSI vs. Science: New Standards for Old Claims

The controversy around recent experiments in psychic phenomena have created a desperate need for new standards in data analysis. This talk explores Daryl Bem’s experiments in precognition and how new methods may be used to create a more rigorous statistical framework. We’ll examine whether these experiments align with our latest understanding of physics (including quantum mechanics) and extend these concepts to broader skeptical issues.

About the Speaker:

He is a consulting editor for Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics a publication of the Psychonomic Society which promotes the communication of scientific research in psychology and allied sciences.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
