I believe so. We only use about 10% of our brains, correct? Those other parts must be for something....

Whether you agree or disagree on the validity of "magic," its an established fact that there are those who practice it.
Just as some disbelieve in the Christian god, it doesn't detract from the validity that people who pray are practitioners of that specific religion or practice.
You can't simply say "no we don't" when the evidence of this practice has been around for millennia.
As to the efficacy of magic? Couldn't tell you. But the validity? Just as much as a belief or subscription to any religion and its rituals.

As far as anything I've read or seen, none of it is real and is usually based on people's incredible desire to believe in such things or, in the case of those who claim to have it, frequently charlatan in nature and sometimes quite mad.
We live in a very biological, scientifically understandable world where amazing things happen everywhere if you consider the natural life cycles of many animals, things like chrysalis, weather phenomenon, so much really. And that's about as close to "magic" as anything really is.
Then I offer a challenge. I can take you to a valley and show you things and experiences that will change your attitudes and view of reality forever.
