    Re: Criss Angel

    I watch it when its on if I am around. I am torn on if its bs or not. Saw a clip on youtube that broke him down and they said its all video tricks and backed up their claims. Tuff to say though, I think some is legit, but have a feelin some is bs. Kind of a mixture of both. There has got to be some shenanigans involved somewhere in all of his stuff I think! However, he does know how to entertain, and thats more or less the bottom line for that line of work! So we watch and are amazed, and he does a good job amazing us, even if there is a perfectly good explanation for it all.

    what do you mean by "legit" ?

    Its called magic. Chris confirmed it many times in case you think he can levitate.

    Yeah but there's a big difference between illusion and magic. I'm talking about his mentalism. The whole mind reading/ prediction things he does. Do you think be has mental abilities or plant people in crowds?

    He's an entertainer. Just like Copperfield and Houdini and all the other illusionists. He just dresses like AFI instead of in a tuxedo.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~anyone else? Anyone? My parents walked into the house today and I was watching one of his shows and they told me to turn it off because his powers were from the devil and I was inviting evil spirits in the house. So I was curious to see if anyone else thought what he did was real. What do you think. Real levitation

    What do ya mean what do I mean by legit? Legit as in non fake as in he really did what he did without any camera trickery or placing of people or a prior set up. Sure its called magic, but magic can always be explained making it just another thing a person does that they are good at that most people cant explain until they are shown how its done. Its not magic as in a supernatural ability like Xmen mutants or something. Illusion is as someone said the better word. And I have seen how he levitates explained. Its all in what the eyes are tricked into seeing. That is the art so I take nothin away from the guy at all for that. He is incredible at his art

    Re: Criss Angel

    Its a legit or a real "art" of fooling the eye, and the mind. But I dont feel it is legit or real as in what you see is what is really happening. There is an art behind it of making something happen that in all normal senses of nature or of mind, cannot be done. So if thats what one means as the definer of the word magic, then yes, its magic. But this defined magic is not without an explanation that would reveal a reason or way that it is done or possible.

    Re: Criss Angel

    Its not "real" in the sense that he is "really" levitating or any of the other illusions that he performs. He is a great entertainer, he does very creative illusions and does a good job of building up his audience's sense of engagement when he is performing.

    From a scientific or physical standpoint, no, he is not actually doing any of the things. He's a classic magician or illusionist that tricks the audience into seeing what he wants them to see, not what is actually happening.

    There is nothing wrong with it. I know its all fake somehow in the end, but I don't really care. I walk away entertained and wondering "how'd he do that?" and thats all that really matters, isn't it?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Is there anybody reading this thread who thinks what he does is real? Anyone? We won't ridicule you. I just want peoples opinions. For me I agree with lovin2act in saying magic is an art, its not actual powers, but being good enough to make people knock other people's socks off
