Derren Brown, mind reader…

Saw Derren Brown at the royal concert hall in Glasgow last night.

absolutely stunning. He’s incredible, memory and cold reading skills that border on the uncanny (not to mention spectacular showmanship).

I like him a lot – and like him even more for the simple fact that he doesn’t claim to be a psychic. In fact, he goes out of his way to state that he does not have (or indeed, even believe in) any psychic ability.

The best bit about Derren Brown is that, like me, he was once a Born gain christian before becoming an atheist. He has this to say about Richard Dawkin’s “The God Delusion”:

“I hope that those secure and intelligent enough to see the value of questioning their beliefs will be big and strong enough to read this book. It is a heroic and life-changing work”

Amen to that, brother.
