9781463601577: Psychic Vibrations: Skeptical Giggles from the Skeptical Inquirer

At Last – A Skeptical Book that’s not just Informative, but FUN to read!

“Lots of Healthy Laughs... I repeatedly scribbled out phrases and notes... I highly recommend that you invest in a copy.” - James “The Amazing” Randi, SWIFT Blog

“A small treasury of gems... Highly entertaining way to get your eyes out on sticks” - Peter Brookesmith, Fortean Times (UK)

For more than thirty years, Robert Sheaffer’s Psychic Vibrations column has been entertaining readers of The Skeptical Inquirer, while keeping them informed of weird developments in the “science” of UFOs, psychic research, Cryptozoology, etc. Those columns are gathered together here, organized by subject, to inform and amuse the reader. With 150 humorous illustrations by cartoonist Rob Pudim

  • A scientific expedition searches for Mermaids in the South Pacific.
  • A Saucer Crashes – in Central Park!
  • A mad UFOlogist tries to poison local officials by spreading radioactive materials around them because he thinks they’re covering up a UFO crash!
  • Sure, you can read about Alien Crop Circles in plenty of books. But where else can you read about:

  • Alien Carpet Circles, made by the indoor landing of tiny UFOs?
  • A secret government project hiding shocking photos - of Noah’s Ark?
  • Creationist attacks not only on evolution, but on heliocentrism, too?
  • Who teaches students to distinguish between Creation Rocks and Flood Rocks?
  • Which has stronger psychic powers: Uri Geller, or a dead hamster?
  • It’s all here, folks. Nowhere else. And it’s all true (meaning that the author didn’t make it up). And remember: “Millions of cuddly household pets are really space aliens.”
