I have to say i really believe in illusions that make people laugh with excitment becuase they know it's fake. I think we want to believe in the thought of magic, we want it to be real! But take David Blaine for example, he can do the things no human has ever done before. It is amazing but we always wonder how he does it? We can't fight that fact that some magic is not all illusion! What do you think? Do you believe magic is real?

I believe in magick and magic yes. The illusions and the other kind. It'd be kinda silly for me not to, considering how my life's gone. And especially since I work with it on a day-to-day basis. Or maybe I'm insane and I'm not really typing this, I'm really in a straight jacket..lol.

I do not believe magic is real. I have always been fascinated with it and tried to learn more about it. I found that a lot of the illusions or tricks are similar, they just have a different "story" to go with it. A show I like to watch is Mindfreak with Kris Angel. I feel he is one of the best illusionists, much better than David Blaine. Im sone episodes he shows you how he does certain illusions. There are some he does that are amazing like levitating 50 feet in the air and walking on water. I want to believe magic is real but I have a feeling that it isn't

i don't believe in all magics. as you said, some magics are just pure illusions. But i have also seen some magics which i cannot conclude to be pure tricks only. I've seen david blaines shows and i myself is convinced that he is not only playing tricks on us, but what he is doing is something no human being can fully grasp. he does things which are unexplainable. i cant understand how he does this awesome things, but i hope whatever that power he has is not coming from the dark side. scary!
