Tune in with Saul Ravencraft and David Marsh for a conversation about skepticism with Jonathan Maxwell. Jonathan found how a lack of skepticism can cause a great deal of confusion and embarrassment when he researched his book “Piltdown Man and Other Hoaxes”. Saul recalls science text books which still listed the Piltdown man as a link in the evolutionary chain, even though it was a hoax.
We’ll discuss the nature of these kinds of deceptions. Are they always intentional? What is “healthy skepticism”? How do we pursue interests in the paranormal without becoming cynical about it?
