Michael Shermer, historian and founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, refutes many of the conspiracies that have stirred our imaginations for decades. Appearing on the Shawn Attwood podcast, Shermer touches on a variety of topics, including scientology, cults, UFOs and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
About Kennedy, he says, there’s no doubt in his mind that Lee Harvey Oswald was the assassin. “The only real question is, was he the lone shooter?” he asks. He says there are logical explanations for allged UFO sightings, including Roswell, and has an unfavorable opinion of L. Ron Hubbard and his Church of Scientology. Here’s the interview.
