Business College Complex Room N130, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI
Ever wonder why people believe in UFOs and alien abductions, mind-reading and psychics who talk to the dead, reincarnation and life after death, out-of-body and near-death experiences, urban legends and satanic panics, not to mention Intelligent Design creationism and the pernicious myth that the Holocaust never happened?
Dr. Michael Shermer will be presenting a lecture based on his bestselling book, Why People Believe Weird Things. Dr. Shermer is a genuine ghost-buster, a relentless crusader against junk science, bad science, voodoo science, pathological science, pseudoscience, and plain old nonsense. His lecture is filled with humor, insight, magic, illusions, and personal anecdotes ? a highly entertaining wake-up call you won't want to miss.
