Skeptic’s Toolbox 2010


May 10, 2010

Registration is now open for this year’s Skeptic’s Toolbox: "Scams."

Scams succeed because they exploit universal and powerful
psychological processes. These processes are the very ones that have
enabled humans to survive and create art and technology. To understand
how and why these scams succeed is to understand what it is to be human.

A basic ingredient of effective skepticism is a grasp of what
transforms Homo sapiens into Homo suckers.

This year’s Toolbox aspires to provide you with this grasp.

Register today!
