Science of Scams

Illusionist, Mentalist and all round scallywag Derren Brown has released a new website exploring the science behind modern scams. The aim of the website is to offer an insight into some of the more misleading paranormal and physiological techniques used to alter peoples stringent belief systems. Derren elaborates further,

“Our emotions are deep and unconscious, and tend to have more power over us than our rational minds. Once an idea plays to our imaginations, it’s hard to shift it, and then we look around for things to support it, happily disregarding things which don’t fit the picture we have in our heads.”

The website consists mainly of videos debunking the irrational; hosted by Derren and his assistant Kat. Sounds intriguing, ill certainly be keeping tabs on the new videos as they arrive.

There’s also a downloadable Facebook app to scam your closest friends. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

You can find the new website at www.scienceofscams.com .
