Yeah, not a bad video. I kinda wish Shermer would try and avoid the little quips. He's just not good at them, and appears awkward (especially when he laughs at his own quip before the audience gets it!). He's much better when he's going straight to the substantive stuff.

he is always using the same quips
i bet he is incredible at lectures but at 5 minute appearances.. is just the same material.. it quickly gets old..

It sounds to me as if Mr. Shermer is getting ready to replace James Randi and JREF with his own skeptic society.

What does astrology have to do with 9/11 truthers? Your thread title is wrong derrida. Furthermore, you spelled "delusion" wrong so I had to correct it. Sheesh.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Instead of worrying about how someone who's English is not their primary language, perhaps you should concern yourself with not posting outright lies in your thread titles Scepcop.
