Skeptical Adventures in Europe, Part 1
Susan Gerbic tells of her journeys through the countries of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.
I promise, it is the last time I will write about Tyler Henry. This year. Probably.
Sometimes what is missing from a psychic reading is more interesting—and more important—than what was actually said.

Eventually I’m going to piss off Tyler Henry
I have written extensively that from everything I have seen he is using cold-reading tactics.
The Real ESP–Building a Bridge for Skeptics
This interview with the European Skeptics Podcast is an example of what can happen when you venture out and meet others who share the same passion and worldview.
GSoW Audio of Skeptics Project
Wikipedia as you know contains lots of text, but the better pages also contain photos, audio, and video…
So, you supported the March for Science. Now what?
We care about science, education, critical thinking, and the Earth. Okay, now what?
Anatomy of a Reading
I’ve seen a lot of criticism of Tyler Henry, and I might be alone in thinking that what is going on with his readings has nothing to do with Google and everything to do with cold-reading.
Facilitated Communication on Wikipedia gets an Update
To the scientific skeptic community, the evidence presented is going to have to reach a high bar before it will be accepted. To the believer, in many cases the word evidence means that they have seen it work.
Vandalism on Wikipedia
I really want to use this opportunity to explain the inner workings of Wikipedia and how everyone is needed to help police it.
Return of the Grief Vampire Tyler Henry
Tyler Henry’s skill lies in his ability to nod in agreement to every statement as if he already knew that. His repertoire of facial expressions is wonderfully entertaining.
The Man Behind the Makeup: An Interview with Captain Disillusion
Captain D’s catch phrase is “Love with your heart: use your brain for everything else.” I think it’s about time the community learned more about the man behind the makeup.
Tip the Canoe of Tyler Too!
Operation Tater Tot is a project I and others are working on to educate television viewers about the alleged accuracy and endorsements from celebrities of Tyler Henry on the E! Network.
Operation Tater Tot: Following Up On A Grief Vampire
What people need to understand is that it is NOT my responsibility to disprove Tyler Henry or any other psychic. The burden of proof lies in the person who is making the extraordinary claim to prove they have the ability they claim to have.
Grief Vampires Don’t Come Out Only at Night
These people come and go fame-wise. His flame might be bright for the moment, but it could quickly fade into obscurity, or it could ignite a fire that will burn the memories and interrupt and corrupt the grieving process for parents who go to him in desperation and loss.
The Wikipediatrician’s Whirlwind Australian Tour
I encourage everyone to not just visit a place but use social media to find our community. Skeptic groups in areas all over the world have Meetup.com and Facebook pages; reach out to them and make your own mini-tour. I’m sure that they are as interested in meeting you as you are in meeting them.
Learn to Edit Wikipedia like a GSoW Editor-Backwards Editing
So you might have heard about this awesome website called Wikipedia. It’s the sixth most viewed website worldwide. It is where most people find out information about the weird in the world. I’m going to explain a Wikipedia editing technique that I call Backwards Editing and how you can help out without joining my Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia (GSoW) project.
Operation Ice Cream Cone
My goal is two-fold: first to catch a psychic in a hot-read and second to report back in detail to the skeptical community in order to train and encourage others to continue where we left off.
“I had the idea if I could prove a hot read, then we might just be able to expose that medium with incontrovertible proof.”
Guerrilla Skepticism Visits the Center for Inquiry
Wikipedia has become the default initial source of research for many students, teachers and the general public who want answers. It’s important and becoming more important daily. Editing Wikipedia is a passion for the Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia team.
Wikapediatrician Susan Gerbic discusses her Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia project
The Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia (GSoW) project was started in May 2010 as an effort to unite editors to become more skilled at adding skeptical content to the fifth most popular Internet site in the world. I discovered that there are people in our community that have been looking for a way to become more involved but need more structure, support, and training.
