This is a fascinating 1988 James Randi video, of him working with the Australian version of 60 Minutes to create a fake NewAge media sensation called "Carlos". It reveals not only how gullible the "spiritual" public is, but also how lame the media is, posing as the public's protectors.
If you ever wanted proof that a good portion of our lives are nothing but one big scam, this is it. Watch and learn.
Well, it inspired Skeptics of Carlos Blogcircle - you might like Randi's take on it, filmed for the Skeptic Zone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3mkoIfpsvUReplyDelete
