More than a dozen skeptics from the University of Central Oklahoma stood outside in protest of John Edwards’ appearance in Oklahoma City.
One skeptic said, “The truth of what’s going on isn’t necessarily there to back up these statements that are made.”
Edwards is one of the country’s most successful psychics headlining two different shows based on his work.
At $150 a ticket, hundreds of residents came to get answers to some of life’s questions.
Demonstrators outside say it’s all hogwash.
Caleb Lack, the advisor of the UCO Skeptic Club, claims in many cases, a lot of trickery is involved.

Daniel: "One the one hand it's very encouraging to see people being active about skepticism and attempting to demonstrate to people many of the tricks used by psychics. Many of them were trying to demonstrate why skepticism about their claims is completely justified and that from what we know about psychics so far, this stuff isn't genuine. Having said that I find it a shame that we cannot treat these shows like magic shows. Your average person understands that a magic show is not real magic but cleaver illusions designed to fool you and we can appreciate the art behind this. I think it would be nice to reach a point where this is the way we look at psychics and appreciate the talent of cold readings, understanding of body language and tone of voice in such a way that the psychic can obtain the information he/she is seeking.
PS: Anyone else notice that through the entire article they write "John Edwards" instead of the correct spelling "John Edward"?... well you do now.
