Magic Or Miracle? Putting Psychic Powers To The Test

A session at CSICON

Thursday 27th October, 2011

3:30pm to 4:00pm (CST)

Are there really people who can predict the future, find lost persons or hidden treasures, guess the content of sealed boxes or move objects without touching them? Many are genuinely convinced that they have these powers, but don't really know how to test them properly. Drawing on the extensive files of his own research and that of CICAP, the Italian skeptics committee, Massimo Polidoro will examine some of the most bizarre claims made during the past 20 years and the original experiments devised to test them.

(Part of The Investigators plenary session)
