Quote# 1493

Oh, and have you ever seen "David Blaine: Street Magician"? Unless he used trick photography, or actors, there is no other explanation for his "magic" than that it is real (I saw him bend one card, place it in the middle of a deck so that one could see the "bend", and saw the card instantaneously move upward through the deck, so that it was on top).

And since there were no actors or cameras when your uncle pulled a nickel from behind your ear, the only explanation is real magic.

Gee - or did he have a wedge of clear plastic that temporarily bent one card at a time or say a fingernail or a guitar plectrum?

Then you just have to put the palmed bent card on top.

Common Fundie reasoning. I don’t understand how it works, so it must be magic, or evil.

First-rate example of argument from ignorance. Dude, magicians are just tricksters; that is the whole point of their profession, to entertain by doing something one way and making it look as if something entirely different is happening. All it means when you can't tell how it was done is that they're good at it!

Damn Yankee

I think Penn and Teller's Hollywood burial plot card trick is far more impressive than David Blane's stuff.

Dude, if David Blaine could use actual magic, do you think he would be wasting his time as a street magician?
