James Randi is coming to Saskatoon Sept. 26th

CFI Saskatoon has invited him to speak and it should be a very interesting night. He’ll be speaking at the Roxy Theatre and any and all are welcome to attend. I quote from the event information as listed on Facebook.

Randi is the founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF, http://www.randi.org/site/) with a mission is to promote critical thinking by reaching out to the public and media with reliable information about paranormal and supernatural ideas so widespread in our society today. The JREF offers a still-unclaimed million-dollar reward for anyone who can produce evidence of paranormal abilities under controlled conditions. Through scholarships, workshops, and innovative resources for educators, the JREF works to inspire this investigative spirit in a new generation of critical thinkers.

The tickets will be available through Eventbrite (I’ll update this when I have a link) or in person at one of our other events (for example Chris DiCarlo’s talk at the end of August.)

Consider attending. Yeah, it costs a bit but you might come out of it a little wiser. Surely that possibility is worth a few dollars.

    I see we have a critic in our crowd who isn’t overly thrilled about Randi’s invitation. I don’t really know that much about him or his organization which is why I want to attend his talk. I don’t know if I’d agree with everything he says myself. Will see in September, I guess.
