Uri Geller Outraged! U of A cancels spoon-bending workshop criticized as ‘bunk science’

When a note about an upcoming spoon-bending workshop at the University of Alberta came through Timothy Caulfield’s inbox, he immediately assumed it was a joke.

After all, he thought, no actual university would promote such an event, inviting medical students and future health professionals to learn about “spoon bending and the power of the mind,” right?


  • Oh come on it’s as valid as their climate change classes.

      Of all the things being done in Alberta based on Bunk Science why pick on this one.

      • All they have to claim is that spoon bending reduces their carbon footprint and they’re in like Flynne.

      Yep . Where is the evidence

  • Western universities could use a class in mind flexibility.

    No spoon benders allowed but some bearded savage talking about Mo riding a magic horse in the sky is no doubt acceptable to them.

    Yuri Geller can still bend spoons for the gullible ?
    You would think the arthritis pain would be too much for an old “magician”.
