There's another method of levitation that I've seen another illusionist use.

It involved turning your feet so that the viewer(s) could only see one of your feet, while from behind that foot, the other foot would push you up. ...Or something like that.


I think that's called the "Kings Rising" levitation.

Anyway, Angel is full of sh**.  Paid shills, numerous cuts, and post production editing...yawn.  Lots of mistakes too.

In the one where he levitates the girl in front of the audience on the street...her feet are crossed one way (right over left?) for most of the shoot but there is one scene where they are reversed.  I've seen this same girl before too.

And, his building to building levitation...almost the same thing.  His feet are flat and a few inches apart the whole way.  AFTER it's over, they are doing the usual crowd comments and they show a 3 second slo-mo replay and his feet are crossed.  LOL.

Criss Angel uses demons.  What he does is real.  There are no mirrors or people pulling wires.  Jesus is way more powerful than demons though.  If you don't believe me, next time you conjure up a spirit or are directly involed with spirits or inner guides, try saying "Jesus" or quote scripture.  I dare you.  You won't believe the reaction you will get from spirits.  If you fear for your life though because of them being furious at you for saying that, you can ask Jesus to save you.  
In the moment that a demon or spirit is threatening your very life, say "Jesus!  Save me!  I give my life to you."  Then face the spirit directly and tell him "I command you to leave immediately in Jesus name".  You can quote scripture as well and keep saying that if he doesn't leave immediately.  In some cases it has taken hours, but the spirit MUST go away in the name of Jesus.

I dare you to merely say the word "Jesus" in the presence of a spirit/gaurdian/inner spirit guide.  If you don't actually believe that the name is powerful and it won't have any affect to say it then what's it going to hurt.  Just try it but when the spirit you thought was benign suddenly terrifies you, remember what I said above how to save yourself.

Criss Angel is an illusionist, that is all. The moron can't summon demons or use hell's power or any of that stuff to do any of his stunts. It's all a bunch of tricks.

Don't take something so simple and turn it into a religous thing.  hmm.gif

Ok these is the thing that he looks for the skeptics out there too simple minded to believe that a human being can pull off such a feat. and that all humans should be normal!!!!!

No not true this is why I strive to be different because this race and the many cultures want and strives you on being like them in every way just with a little different perspective!!!!

Ok it is probably not magic or even illusions but the fact is that someone has come out with something good and spectacular and here are the skeptics trying to put down the potential of what we can do. Whether it is fake or not the point is he fooled you once and if he is good at doing it once what makes you think that he would never be able to do it again. His manipulations of your mind have caused you to try and find out how it is done and why should he have the something better than me so I will just criticize that person and try to make him out to be a fake.

This is the human race with anyone doing better than them. Why is he doing better, how is he manipulating minds and I am not, and even so why has he got me to talk about things that he care about and still makes money off of it?????

He could have or could have not pulled of a deeper awareness of the consciousness, but the point is he is not afraid of the people who says that he hasn't or that he just could not do that and that it is impossible.

Ok if everything he does is so fake and somewhat illusions explain to me the shadow trick he did when he somehow uses his shadow to manipulate the other shadow to obliviously move it!!!! Or how he takes his mother out of a case that he was carrying with nothing under the table or no cloth covering it!! Or the one where he draws a butterfly on a piece of paper and makes it appear without multiple foldings or anything!!! Or even when he wrote something on a cab window saying the exact thought that the woman was thinking and did it right in front of the audience!!!!! Amazing huh???

He is bringing the inspiration back into many people just by what he does just because it is things that you thought was possible. Whether it was actually doing the illusion or playing your mind into believing it the first time!!!!

You should be open minded to the possibilities that the human race can do something with themselves besides make money for themselves or for someone else. He does what he does because it gets people like you to talk about what he does which almost fuels him to do even more spectacular things.Also the people that do believe in him waits for the next feat. which would make their minds fold and unfold asking questions. To know that someone has done something spectacular with their life and time making your mind boggle the first time which is always the best The First Impression and he always makes sure that it is perfect for your eyes and mine!!! So try and lay off of what the man does and congratulate him on the things that you cannot do!!!!!!

Explain and then i will believe that he a fake and a rip off!!!!!!!

somebody probably already said this (a fan maybe) but you got number 1 wrong he already explained it on his show....there is no fake leg....he has magnets in his shoes to make it look like he is keeping his feet together when he slips his leg out of a slit in his (black) pants and his foot out of his shoe giving the illusion that his legs are straight...the leg that he slipped out is stepping on a stair or whatever is in front of him

I mean some people might think this is what he is! But seriously it does not change the fact,
of what he is an illusionist.
Now you can take that how you want to but thats all he is nothing Criss does is real,
except for maybe the feats of strength he shows us veiwers!

He admits to being fake. It takes a lot of skill to pull off the tricks he does. He acutally admitted in a radio interview that he does not believe in the paranormal.

Look at:
http://media.putfile.com/Criss-Angel-Levitation-66
then:
http://media.putfile.com/Criss-Angel-Beer

The same girl is "levitated" and tastes bear in those...

Yeah, I can see that most of his tricks are just setups, where he uses actors and props for magic tricks (like stuf to make water "change" into beer, where in fact its just beer-like color and froth).

The levitation in the first video seem to be performed by hanging the girl on the crane - it very much looks like she is hanging with invisible cord holding her by her waist. And Criss nere moves his hand over her belly.

LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Do some google searches before you start turning everything into a religious matter. Nothing Chris does is "real" (peranormal) and nothing he does has anything to do with demons and sh**. XD

Well said.  Everything has a logical explanation I think.  Even if it seems wound up in fiction.  Still lol, street magic cool as to watch tongue.gif. (on television atleast) :S

An illusion is an illusion.  The key difference between the two is that one is limited by time and the other by perception.
