Γιατί οι άνθρωποι βλέπουν την Παρθένο Μαρία σε ένα σάντουιτς με τυρί ή ακούνε διαμονικούς στίχους στο "Stairway to Heaven"; Χρησιμοποιώντας βίντεο και μουσική, ο σκεπτικιστής Μάικλ Σέρμερ δείχνει πώς πείθουμε τον εαυτό μας να πιστέψει - και να παραβλέψει τα γεγονότα.

Michael Shermer debunks myths, superstitions and urban legends — and explains why we believe them. Along with publishing Skeptic Magazine, he's author of Why People Believe Weird Things and The Mind of the Market. Full bio
