News worth reposting:
Are We Alone? - New Skeptical Sunday with James Randi
"As I look into the crystal ball, I see... I see... I see James Randi, magician and skeptic extraordinaire. It's the self-same Randi who once exposed Uri Geller's trick for bending spoons. What does he say now that Geller has apparently admitted he is a magician, and not a silverware psychic after all?"

Also, the Amazing Randi's last chance for all mind readers, levitation experts and other masters of the paranormal: you have two years to prove your stuff before the $1,000,000 challenge ends.

Plus, a recent Harvard study scans brains for neurological evidence of ESP... unfolding the origins of the fortune cookie... And Phil Plait rounds up the latest skewed cogitations of lazy brains: is a recent Rover photo evidence of Bigfoot on Mars?

It's Skeptical Sunday... but don't take our word for it. Guests:

  • Phil Plait - Author of badastronomy.com
  • James Randi - Stage magician, paranormal skeptic, and founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation
  • Sam Moulton - Psychologist at Harvard University
