...and can we take this to be an (indirect) admittance by Criss that supernatural powers don't exist, and what he [Criss] does is just an act meant for show? ...or basically what we all already knew but some refuse to accept?

You said that Criss Angel, was trying to prove that, psychics are not real. But, maybe he was just trying to prove that, that guy is not for real. Like, i mean, if psychics are real, that doesn't mean everyone who claims to be a psychic is real.

As I said before Criss Angel has openly stated that he is a skeptic of anything supernatural. He believes that psychics just use more perception then anything super natural there for debunking them immediately. He also debunks many magicians and has a very natural belief in life, he doesn't believe in psychics or ghosts or anything of the supernatural.

Criss and Uri both said they want to see something they've never seen before, but almost all of the acts were all things I've seen before, and most are pretty easily explained, but they still got good reviews from criss and uri.
The only thing I thought was really cool was from the guy that got eliminated, I'll try to find it...
Those 'Channeling the Dead' guys are the lowest of the low. I don't even group them with the mentalists. They actively try to get vulnerable people to believe they are really doing it.
They should all be put out of business. However, I have to admit - people go to them, probably knowing they are phoney; it's nuts.
