Yes, he's a real magician (illusionist).

I have to agree with kinglizard. I'm pretty sure he's a real illusionist.

So you are saying he does real magic or is the stuff he does still fake.

Ok I believe there are people in the world that are able to do things that others are not capable of like in bible days they had prophets like Daniel.And the diciples not just Jesus also did great things. Some people even have magic from the devil I feel.

David Blaine is an illusionist. He is not magical.

Criss Angel on the other hand.......

It s odd how Blaine is seemingly admired in the USA while here in the UK he is openly mocked and derided, even being referred to as 'Git Wizard' (Git is not something complimentary)



There are no 'real' magicians, they are all illusionists. For more insight into this world read up on the life of Harry Houdini, he was about much more than escapology and tightrope walking, his exposings of supposedly 'genuine' magicians and mediums were brilliant.

Honesly,

I had never heard of David Blaine before this recent stunt he tried (but failed to complete). That, I guess the one which started this discussion. Personally, I thought that it seemed a little wierd, and not a whole lot of fun to stay underwater for a week or however long (how did he go to the bathroom, anyway?) Just wondering. Then try to beat the worlds record off holding one's breath (currently 8.58 seconds).

I mean, sure, everyone wants to beat a world record at something, at some time. But why all the underwater stuff first? I wondered.

So, I Googled him out of curiousity. Apparently, the man is a multi-millionaire. He makes big bucks from the publicity of his stunts. So, yes, he has never claimes to be a true magician, as far as I have read. He has only claimed to be an illusionist. But, if the guy makes sh*tloads of money doing what he does, gotta hand it to him, don't you think?

Then again, he might be just an illusionist, but who's to say that there is no such thng as real magic?

The man is clearly one big publicity stunt , first staning on the tower for 3 days? might of been longer , then fozen in ice , then starving himself even in an press confrence the day before he went up in the box for the starvation stunt he "cut off" his ear infront of like 20 camras

Hey dont get me wrong it would take emence stamina strength and will to pull of stuff like that but id say its all drivin by the money he recieves from spnonsers , tv channels , press agentcies etc...

Maybe David is trying to master the elements of Earth, Air, Fire & Water ext...which is the backbone of natural magic. I admire David Blaine's will to tinker with the flip side.


Now, Criss Angel on the other hand....... has a very low IQ probably, maybe a High School drop out.... He tried to explain away one his magic stunts with quantum physics, he clearly didn't know what he was talking about.
