Evaluating Evidence: Garbage in - Garbage out
Unlike many of the conferences held by CSI, the Skeptic’s Toolbox is a much more intimate and informal affair during which participants get an opportunity to put the tools of science and skepticism directly to work on many paranormal or pseudoscientific claims and ideas. Along with fascinating case studies and experiences presented by a wonder- fully engaging faculty, attendees break up into small groups and tackle a case study of their own under the guidance of a faculty member.
