Michael Shermer is the founder of the Skeptic Society, which boasts over 55,000 members today. He is also the editor-in-chief of Skeptic Magazine.

Skepticism means viewing the world through a rational eye, always looking for scientific evidence to support or refute new claims, and always beginning with the null hypothesis (assuming it’s false and putting the onus on the claimant to prove that it’s true).

In this episode, we talk a little bit about the philosophies of being a skeptic, we talk about conspiracy theories, and we talk about Michael’s brand new book ‘Heavens On Earth’, which took a look at the scientific evidence of the afterlife, heaven, utopia and so on.
