Do you believe in magic?

Asked by stevenb (3816points) May 13th, 2008 from iPhone

I mean, levitation, voodoo, telekenesis, mind over matter, flying, etc. Chris Angel type of crazy stuff, as well as Tibetan monk, or any other. I saw a special where monks spent the night in subzero weather over night with no clothes, and had no I’ll effects, and the scientists were amazed. I saw another show where they had people who could do amazing documentable things. What do you think?

All of these magical phenomena have been fully documented by The National Enquirer.

well, in the case of the monk, i can see the body as a mere vessel of the soul, thereby being able to bend it to extremes with enough willpower…for the rest it’s just bs.

No. I believe in probability. Even extremely unlikely things happen once in a while.

I think they are tricks/illusions to have people believe in a power that has no real power. And to distract and make people not believe in God.

I don’t believe in the supernatural magic, but think the world around us is quite magical.

@uberbatman. That song was going through my head while I was phrasing the question. How about miracles of any sort. How many of those have been actually documented and proven?

lsd can unlock your mind to where your able to do all kinds of telekinetic stuff. i once had a conversation with my other friend under the influence of lsd. we had a conversation for 2 hours where neither one of us spoke. we talked with our minds. he would think something funny i would laugh. i could control the cd player with my mind. i skipped songs turned up the volume. im not joking it happened.

I believe in NewOrleans magick- Neworleans has the 5 major traditions- french and spanish colonies- catholicism, afro carribean , Haitian vodou.
Santeria, obeah—all kinds of religions that make up wonderful magickal rituals.
Also telekinesis is a wonderful science- chris angel is good at that.
Theres the art of illusion and theres the art of reality- and magic-k- in all its forms occult or not leaves you thirsty for more info. Its the art of the unknown- the art of the occult – something that is supreme to us and our intelligence.
