I am guessing the answer is 'Yes' (or you're avoiding the question?). All the examples you keep giving include intentional tricks and deceptions. For example, are you saying the guy in the OP 'quarter story' intentionally played a fast one on the people there? And from that are we to extrapolate that is what happens every time in all these cases? Again I must ask: What is your point? The magic and Santa Claus analogies don't apply unless there is an intentional deceiver!! Ha! Avoiding the question!? Hardly. It was a stupid question. I have no clue if those stories are remotely factual. Let alone the if the events happened exactly as reported. But yes. If the stories are accurate then I surmise that deceit played a part in the outcome. P.S. YOU avoided MY question in the first place! Do you believe in "real" magic? Making the Statue of Liberty disappear and reappear? Sawing people in half? Pulling quarters out of people's ears? I stated my point. 20 minutes ago, onlookerofmayhem said: The point was that people are easily duped. 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
