Dunno if it has been posted before, because i'm not going to read the entire topic.
It is sad to see that he warrants a discussion in the paranormal section, something which he is not.
He is pure and simply a street magician. I dabble in it myself. David Blaine was the first big street magician to hit prime-time TV, and others have followed in his footsteps.
David Blaine's levitation trick was the Balducci, which is my personal favourite as well. Look it up.
Criss Angel's is a little trickier, but it can still be done by anyone.
Only read the following link if you want to know how he did them, as it spoils it A LOT.
How To: Criss Angel Levitations

I've been studying magic for about four years now and I have figured out how Criss does many of his tricks. I'm not saying that my ideas are 100% correct but I can give you explanations for most tricks so reply with one of the tricks he does and if possible a video on youtube of it and i'll try to tell you how it's done.
P.S I have no clue how he does the walking on water trick

For the first time yesterday I saw Criss walk on water while in a pool I saw the reactions of the people and even a few crossed his path while he was walking.
I couldn't believe it but it was there and I have no idea how to explain it.
As a human we use perhaps 10% of our brain right?

Stop selling yourself short. Someone gave me a good talking to yesterday over MSN for at least 2 to 3 hours. He said to me to you think we're just worthless slabs of flesh here? We were all created by God. And inside, you know this to be true. I know some of you are skeptics but being closed minded will not get you anywhere. This world is filled with amazing feats. You just have to discover them.
Do you think a normal man can lift a car off his son or daughter or dear friend when they became pinned under it? Under stress a human can perform amazing feats. So why can't you believe that Criss can't walk on water or levatate? And you know I'm right on this. For anyone who wishes to stay closed minded good luck to you.

And the saw really cant cut threw anything. Thats my theory on the cut in half trick and I hope that you stop believing that it's holograms and spirits if so the government would not allow such technology into the hands of a magician.
