894: Psychics and Tarot Cards | Skeptical Sunday
Even if psychics and tarot cards can't give you reliable advice from the great beyond, what's the harm? Join us for Skeptical Sunday with David C. Smalley!
On This Week's Skeptical Sunday, We Discuss:
- Why aren't psychics and tarot card readers prosecuted for fraud when they can't genuinely provide supernatural information to paying clients? Furthermore, why do they charge for their services if they could simply use their powers to win the lottery?
- If psychics can't really tap into the other side for forbidden knowledge from beyond the grave, how do they seem to know so much about my dead uncle's final wishes?
- Despite a thriving industry of self-proclaimed psychics claiming expertise in finding missing children and solving cold cases, investigative journalists (and normal people just paying attention) have proven their claims wrong more often than right.
- What tarot cards are actually telling you.
- It's easy to dismiss psychics as harmless fun and a way for people to cope with the loss of their loved ones, but sometimes they can emotionally (and financially) harm those who are vulnerable in their time of grief.
