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

Or, here's an idea, you could try to work it out for yourself instead of throwing your arms up and proclaiming that magic is "real".

To give you a massive hint, try using Google.

And never mind that "there are more tricks". Consider instead that we've already given you explanations for how some of these tricks are performed that you were convinced had to be something supernatural. Consider that your incredulity is not actually a good measure of whether a trick is just a trick, or something else.

I yeah I thought of that when I saw it. But then he lifted his front toes off the ground and leaned tilted back.  And before he sat down he was moving all naturally like nothing was under his cloths. But even so,  I'm sure 99% can be explained except for a few good ones.

So I just realized the meaning of magic.. its all fake like a fake prophet.

 

That in one way or another there is way to do it and make it appear as if they were like Gods.

Okay?  LOL.  I was thinking about that guy who got his burger from the menu, ate it, and put it back,  so there must of been a hole.

So Michael Diamond got duped?

 

I'm still out to lunch on the teleported man and some of the stuff D. Copperfeld was doing with his prostiT ghosts.

It's not that he got duped. He's not a real Friar and trying to use fear to control people. Didn't you read the link I posted?

You can't base his credential on what a real friar is b/c these illusionists are really good. I think I would like to know how David Copperfield summoned all the dead prostit*&^.  in his trick.

Okay, where in that two-and-a-half hour video is that? You can't seriously expect people to search through something that long.

In any case, Copperfield is a magician, and uses the same sleight-of-hand and misdirection as other magicians to achieve his illusions. We've already shown you how a bunch of tricks are done, so now you have a choice. You can say one of these two things to yourself: either (a) "Yeah, you showed me how those tricks are just tricks, but this trick is definitely different," or (b) "Okay, those tricks are just tricks, so maybe this trick is too, I just haven't worked it out yet." Hint: you'll be doing yourself a service if you choose (b).

D Copperfield in my opinion has the title Grand Master. Nobody here is going to debunk him.

Cooperfield's levitation explaination was bogus as well as he proved there were no wires by letting hula hoops going around him like an atom.

As I said in an earlier post...

We've already shown you how a bunch of tricks are done, so now you have a choice. You can say one of these two things to yourself: either (a) "Yeah, you showed me how those tricks are just tricks, but this trick is definitely different," or (b) "Okay, those tricks are just tricks, so maybe this trick is too, I just haven't worked it out yet." Hint: you'll be doing yourself a service if you choose (b).

In other words, why shouldn't this be a trick just like all the others?

So, just because you can't work out how the trick was done, it must be real paranormal stuff? Please consider the alternative explanation: that you don't know everything about sleight-of-hand and misdirection.

Did you see how fast they vanished? That's not sleight of hand.
