How pathetic!! We are still picking up a few people who are back in the first few pages info wise. No need, PR, to have to constantly educate the new
voices that never read or think. Its a waste of time. There are a few open minds out there, and that is why I stay.
The deniers NEVER answer your questions, or mine, because they know how silly it seems to listen to their imaginings and guesses with ZERO proof to
back them up. They CANNOT describe or prove in any way the supposed ' contraption ' that they imagine accounts for the Luxor levitation, they cannot
come up with even ONE witness to a pay off or film manipulation to deceive, nothing. What we DO get from them is" My sister's friend said.." as
their best case!! Amazing!
IF Criss was nothing more than a phony with enough money to buy loyalty and new tricks that cannot be seen, then of COURSE there would be at least
ONE example of this by someone else. We have BEGGED the deniers to produce even ONE example of another person doing what Criss does, or even close.
But NEVER can they do this, and the reasons given are so laughable that even THEY hesitate to say it out loud for fear of ridicule.
One denier actually believes that no one else in Vegas will stoop low enough to do what Criss does, which to them is somehow coercing all the
allegedly paid witnesses to remain silent forever, using computer editing to allegedly remove the props that the loyal for life paid witnesses pretend
not to see...and it gets more ridiculous from there. The denier keeps slipping deeper and deeper into the hole from which all logic and common sense
have long since departed.
They have NO shame. NONE. They will allege the most outlandish and totally unproven sceanrios to try and explain what is seen, but they never, ever,
manage to get even a shred of real proof, some evidence that settles the matter, and yet they see this as no more an impediment to theior tortured
train of logic than their other assumptions and guesses.
Deniers live in a world of generalities and obfuscations. Get specific and nail them down and all they can do is twist and squirm and call names and
accuse US of being silly for not accepting what they say as valid! Gaul and nerve are the most telling traits of a denier: They will advance the most
preposterous claims backed up by nothing and ask us to believe it as fact!
Just imagine this sceanrio: A jury of impartial persons has been impaneled to decide the answer to an accusation made by one party against another.
The jurors come in with NO predetermined conclusions. The accuser states that one Criss Angel has deceived the public for monetary gain by using
devious means to make money, including paying witnesses to lie and remain silent forever, using props that cannot be seen on film or by witnesses, by
using deceptive video trickery to eliminate props used to make the public think that he indeed can levitate.
Now, the jurors get to see the evidence to support these claims. Item one: An accusation by the sister of a friend, unnamed , that alleges some
element of the accusation. Since hearsay is unreliable and not allowed, only first hand testimony from actual witnesses or participants in the alleged
fraud, that witness cannot be seated and heard. third hand info is not valid.
Then, they roll out a Tv and show a few shadows and clouds and allege that these prove that their accusations are correct. but the jury cannot
determine from shadows and clouds any proof of the accusation; it is inconsequential and far from enough to make any determination in the matter.
Then, the deniers cliam that Criss MUST be deceiving the people because , well, because people cannot do what we se Criss do! The fact that we are
seeing him DO it , with zero actual material refutation, means that unless someone can PROVE beyond a reasonable doubt that their accusations are
valid, then the film and witnesses that show the event must stand as proof that man can INDEED levitate!
If the jurors enetered the case with an open mind and no predetermined beliefs on the subject, they could NOT come to the conclusion that the
deniers are right, because all of their ' proofs ' are nebulous, circumstantial at best and rely on an established prejudice against the ability of
a man to levitate to even begin to sway an observer. Criss would be found NOT guilty by a total lack of evidence that proves the allegation.
Deniers ask for us to suspend our critical thinking and observational skills and instead just TRUST them ! What nerve! Just trust them that Criss
has some supernatural ability to get total and lifelong loyalty from all his witnesses..just trust them when they say that there MUST be a prop or
wires or platform on rigging or a magnetic contraption or something (!!) up there that can account for the Luxor and golf course events...even though
no proof of this is ever given..just trust them!
Here is the bottom line: A Denier CANNOT imagine that a human being can levitate, and they CANNOT believe that Criss can levitate as seen..BUT they
CAN imagine all of the incredible, unproven assumptions and sillines that they must in order to remain confident. Also, remember that people HATE to
admit when they are wrong, and even a denier that realizes that his basket of evidence is empty will normally never admit it and rethink his position:
It is too embarrassing for them to now reverse course and admit that they are operating on assumptions and guesses totally unsupported by evidence
that is beyond a reasonable doubt.
They will cling to their belief despite all the facts, because they are limited by their own imaginations to those things that they are comfortable
with accepting as reality. It would be too unsettling and cause them far too much inner turmoil to accept the facts, so they instead invent grand
conspiracies and allow their imaginations total free reign, as long as at the end of it they still end up comfy and sure of themselves and their grasp
on reality. No other answer explains why so many people will stubbornly insist that the ZERO real proof they offer is actually a smoking gun.
Well, when a denier pulls the trigger, instead of a bullet what comes out is a little flag and we all have a laugh and then get back to business:
Deniers still, after all this, have not offered ONE piece of evidence that makes us take notice and that convinces and settles the argument. you would
think that after all these eyars, and all this talk, that at least ONE major ' gotcha ' moment would have come to the deniers..but alas for them,
there are none. Still. Always. One day they will figure out that the weird reason that they can never come up with a real piece of proof is because
their entire olutlook has been wrong all along:
Criss can levitate and the proof is everywhere, right in front of you. The fact that to disprove this requires more than guesses and shadows and
sister's friends still eludes the denier, and as long as it does, we will always have these posters saying " Gee, he is just an illusionist " and
go back to sleep until the next challenge to their mindsets causes them to once again make some silly statement with no proof and retire to
intellectual slumber land once again.
I just wish we had better foes..these are getting boring.
