“TAM is organized by the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF), a group devoted to a philosophy called skepticism: the debunking of psychics, mediums, pseudoscientists, faith-healers, homeopaths, and anyone else who makes claims that defy the known laws of science. Skepticism has a wide following—the Internet is littered with self-proclaimed skeptic blogs, podcasts, and forums—and JREF is widely acknowledged to be the movement’s hub. Over 1,000 people attended this year’s conference, which featured an array of panelists and speakers, from magician Penn Jillette to comedian Father Guido Sarducci to Steven Novella, a professor at the Yale School of Medicine. (And yes, it was ironic that this militantly rational group decided to hold its annual meeting in a casino.)”
“The Amazing Meeting comes [to Las Vegas] offering a convention that is more of a brain show than a trade show. The Amazing Randi annually leads this convention of doubters for a conference that serves to benefit the James Randi Educational Foundation, best known for offering $1 million to anyone who can produce evidence of the supernatural or occult.”
