Reflections on a Decade of PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION
featuring Benjamin Radford
Sunday, June 19th, 7 PM
Join writer and scientific paranormal investigator Benjamin Radford as he discusses the nature of “ unexplained mysteries” such as ghosts, Bigfoot, crop circles , and psychic powers. What does science say about the evidence for these topics? What is the nature of the “unexplained”? And why is there still debate about these issues? Radford will draw from case studies over a decade of personal investigations into these and dozens of other topics. Skeptics and believers alike will enjoy this interesting and informative talk. There will be plenty of time for audience Q&A.
Benjamin Radford is a research fellow for the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, managing editor of Skeptical Inquirer science magazine and author of five books. He has written over 500 articles on various topics, including urban legends, mass hysteria, mysterious creatures, and media criticism.
Radford is a columnist for Discover News, Livescience.com and Skeptical Inquirer. He has appeared on The Discovery Channel, CNN, National Geographic Television, the Learning Channel, and the Discovery Science Channel as well as MTV. The meeting will be held at the Joyce Beers Community Center (across the street from Trader Joe's in the Uptown Shopping Center off Washington in Hillcrest). The address is 1230 Cleveland Avenue (92103), although the Joyce Beers Community Center faces Vermont Street. It is next door to the Aladdin Restaurant.
