I only shared a story to provide background to myself.  There is no need for names.

Without names, how do we know you aren't making up the whole "my friend is a real magician" story?

In other words, prove to us that the people in that video can't be using sleight-of-hand.

This topic isn't about me or my friend its about the magician seen in the video doing stuff that far exceeds any amateur magicians.

Yep, far exceeds, because they have greater skill and experience at sleight-of-hand. That. Is. All.

If you think otherwise, please feel free to prove it. (And that means evidence, not just you saying so.)

Yeah people always pull a submarine loaf of bread from their slight of hand. I see it all the time.

As I said, if you have evidence of anything other than sleight-of-hand, feel free to provide said evidence, rather than just your say-so.

One of the top magicians pulls out a 16 inch submarine loaf from his palm.

 

I'll screen shot it.

this one was the best.

Pokes a sharp object thru his skin, no blood, no evidence anything went thru hii arm after he let the guy pull it out.

This one is pretty good in front of a live audience. Ordinary magicians can't do this.

Another good one is the magician who throw a deck of cards at the window and the persons card is stuck on the other side of the glass.

There's a massive clue in there if you think about it.

Yes. They can. 

 

They're illusions. Nothing more.

Disappears under a blanket.  (he says a spirit called Desmond gives him powers). And reappears 100 feet off stage behind the audience.

Either he has a twin? or he did something.

I like the one where a guy throws a blanket over himself out in public and disappears under it.

Don't worry about a screenshot if you haven't got it.

Just watch this video from about 7:41: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQP4y5ZKTUc In this particular case it isn't sleight-of-hand but CGI. And incidentally, it's worth watching the rest of the video to see how magicians trick us (with misdirection and sleight-of-hand). And then you might like to look at some of the right-column videos, which should include some with magic tricks for you to practice (remember that word?).

So the crowd was in on the trick?

 

I didn't see the bend over backwards in public.

Yeah, wow, man this is better than bread from your palms. Oh he has something in his pants. But that can't be possible he would tip over to that thing called gravity.

I can't even imagine how these people have done these things without the help of another world called witchcraft.

If you looked up these tricks you would learn how they are done - the "invisible chair" illusion is very well documented.

It's ridiculous to claim that illusions like these are evidence of metaphysical forces.

I'm sure someone could explain it that's why I posted it up. But there are more tricks.
