Oregon's World-Class Skeptic


Maybe we don't talk about "flying saucers" anymore, but there are plenty of subjects that produce a spirited debate over physics versus psychology. 

That second field is the home of Dr. Ray Hyman, emeritus professor at the University of Oregon. 

Hyman is a fellow of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, and he dedicated much of his career to studying why people believe strange things. 

So it comes as no surprise that Ashland's secular-humanist Jefferson Center invited him to speak. 

Dr. Hyman visits our studio to talk about myth and magic.
