Skeptics in the Pub- Ash Pryce: How to be a Psychic Conman

  • March 10, 2011 · 8:00 PM

How to be a Psychic Conman Ash Pryce, founder and President of the Edinburgh Skeptics Society, presents a fully interactive demonstration of various tricks that psychics have used over the years. From the Fox Sisters through to Uri Geller, psychics have been claiming to be able to do things beyond our understanding, but Ash Pryce knows better. Nearly all of the major claims of psychics and mediums can easily be re-created and tonight Ash will be reproducing such famous feats as Uri Geller's Telekinesis, Philipino Psychic Surgery, the Remote Viewing experiments of America's "Stargate" program (The 70s CIA shenanigans and not the inter dimensional, Go-aould busting kind)and much more- including an attempt to beat the odds of the Randi Million. A fun and entertaining evening that also takes a look at the history of psychic trickery and how it has become such a popular phenomenon. Warning to those on the front row - there will be blood...

    It's a bit like fight club.

    Without the fighting.

    Though the conspiracy debate on the 23rd might prove to be the exception.

    I foresaw that you were going to say that. But unfortunately I forgot to write down my clairvoyant prediction anywhere. So you'll just have to take my word for it. (In order to prove you're 'open minded')

    Or just look around until you see someone look into your eyes, look into your eyes, you will feel sleepy...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
