Description

Michael Shermer is the Founding Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Skeptic magazine. He is the author of Why People Believe Weird Things: Pseudoscience, Superstition, and Other Confusions of Our Time, How We Believe: The Search for God in an Age of Science, and Denying History: Who Says the Holocaust Never Happened and Why Do They Say It? (with Alex Grobman).

The high-priest of skepticism, Shermer is the author of a half-dozen books investigating the neuroscience and anthropology of belief through history. From God to ghosts to alien abductions, Shermer’s enlightened, well-reasoned prose lays bare the fault-lines of human kind’s tendency toward belief in the inexplicable and supernatural.
