Great study of perception, luck, rumors, attitude. Derren Brown is brilliant!

“There’s nothing magical about it…. but if you embrace the idea of it… you start to approach life a little differently, but to my mind it is always far more interesting and worthwhile, fascinating, rich, resonant and beautiful when its about us as human beings and not about some kind of superstition..”

    The Enemies of Reason Part 1: Slaves to Superstition
    Richard Dawkins (2007)
    Is it rational that the dead can communicate with the living and give sound advice on how they should live their lives? What about sticking pins into your body to free the flow of Chi energy and cure your illness? Or the bending of spoons using your mind alone? Is that rational? Richard Dawkins doesn't think so, and feels it is his duty to expose those areas of belief that exist without scientific proof, yet manage to hold the nation under their spell. He will take on the world's leading proponents in their field of expertise, meet the victims who have used them and expose the history of the movements — from the charlatans who have milked these practices to the experiments and testing that have failed to produce conclusive results.

    Prof Richard Dawkins tackles the epidemic of irrational, superstitious thinking which is blotting the light of logic and evidence. After garnering tips on psychics' entirely earthly trade secrets from the illusionist Derren Brown, Dawkins attends a seance and confronts the medium. Time and again, the interviewees appeal to personal revelation or second-hand anecdote to justify their belief.
