How much are you affected by subliminal advertizing? You think you aren't, you're smarter than that, right? Think again...

You think your religious beliefs are unassailable truth, that your conversion was genuine and unaffected by group dynamics and suggestability. Ponder the meaning of this...

You think you are too smart to be swindled, you would never fall for a shysters tricks, you'd feel the pickpocket before your wallet was gone. What if the pickpocket simply asked for your wallet without threat of violence? Of course not, you say. Think again...

It pays to question not only your surroundings but your reality as well. It is important to understand how fallible and credulous we really are. I'm glad there are people in the world like Derren Brown to help us understand our limits.

For some explanations look here. In my opinion most explanations are lacking, but they are better than nothing.

For the rest of the "Messiah" episode on religion look here. (8 parts) It includes Derren convincing highly regarded psychics, UFO believers, New Agers and necromancers that he is genuine and getting their full endorsement.

This man is easily one of the most talented human beings on the planet, in my humble opinion.
