TAM London: A Conference for Skeptics

The Amaz!ing Meeting (TAM) is a conference/ fundraiser run by the James Randi Educational Foundation.

If you’re wondering, “Who is James Randi?” It’s fair to call him the center of the skeptics movement. He has a $1 million prize up for grabs that will go to anyone who can demonstrate supernatural powers in a scientifically controlled environment (psychics, ghost hunters, faith-healers, or any other paranormal bullshit artists). He started offering the prize in 1964, and no one has won it.

TAM is occurring in London on October 16 & 17. The impressive list of speakers features BoingBoing’s Cory Doctorow, comic visionary Alan Moore, and many more brilliant scientists, writers, actors, performers, and bloggers.

I desperately want to go, but sincerely doubt I will be able to make it out there this year. There’s always 2011.

I learned about TAM by way of Bleeding Cool.

    1. Without actually testing your genes you have concluded:

      “The phenomenon is caused by unknown signal sends out from special genes in my body, and it brings some of information of my activity, might be the most scientific explain to the phenomena. Once we identify what the signal is, we might could talk with genes and could sequence all kinds of genes in a very easy way, and we also might could use the signal to detect all the functions of genes in a very easy way, is inestimable.”

      It’s shocking that no one is taking you seriously.
