Look.... Dude.

I am trying to EXPLAIN the scientific method TO you, and you are RESISTING.

We have already OBSERVED some form of energy coming from this "Chi Master"

The energy Exists, We already know that.

What CAUSES this energy, on the other hand, we DON'T know.


This means that *YOU* don't know either.


We all LACK knowledge of what it IS.


So, since you have NOT done any scientific experiments, and NOONE else HAS...

IT is not only Irresponsible to say that it is *NOT* Chi energy, it is Dishonest.

Because You are claiming to posses knowledge that you DO NOT HAVE.


You Do not KNOW whether it is "Chi" energy or not, You have not done ONE test.


IS it suspicious that he does not submit himself to Scientific Testing?

Maybe...


Does that prove that it is NOT Chi energy?


NO! it DOES NOT PROVE ANYTHING.


We get PROOF from TESTS, not baseless speculation.


Bottom LINE, you DO NOT KNOW.

Therefore, when you say that it is NOT Chi energy, SCIENCE does NOT back you up.


Science means KNOWLEDGE.

This is knowledge YOU LACK.

Therefore, CLAIMING KNOWLEDGE, that you *DO NOT* posses, is the opposite of science.

It is Religion.

You have FAITH that it is not Chi energy, because you have NO PROOF one way or the other.

Can't the same be said for anyone saying IT IS Chi energy? We can use your same argument of lack of testing against you as well. YOU DO NOT know if it exist or not either. There IS NO physical proof it does so therefore the argument IT SHOULD be tested is brought forth. To call it Chi Energy is equally irresponsible.

deeply interesting!! S&F for sure!

The last scene of the Master is walking across the paper, my very first thought was Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: where they are jumping from tree top- to- tree top. hmmm....looking at this video, it was CGI in the movie but, based on ancient truth!

oh, and he can cure cancer.
but that never gets put on the MSM. You know, "just some mystical guy again from China just curing cancer and making human feel 160% better and stuff, nothing to see, move along"

Where has it been demonstrated in a controled environment with qualified witnesses where it could not be faked. Some people believe phsycic surgery is real even though how it is done has been demonstrated over and over again.

Wanting something to be true, does not make it so.

All the Chi conman apologetics and science bashers are totally missing the point:

If this guy is for real, he needs to submit himself to be tested. Why? So we can measure what is going on, and make sure he's not TRICKING people.

However, since he refuses to allow any such thing happen, I'll have to assume that what he's doing, which any magician can do, is just a trick.

Eastern "chi" magicians play on ignorant westerners misconceptions that some humble mountain dwelling monk couldn't possibly lie to them about anything.


Anyone who believes in this stuff is very, very naive.

I think they used ropes or strings etc to do most Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, no CG needed.

Yes, that is my entire point.

We lack KNOWLEDGE of what this energy is.

Therefore, it is irresponsible to claim to HAVE knowledge one way or another.


I am not saying that it *IS* chi energy, I am saying that we CANNOT say, that it is NOT chi energy.

We cannot discount ANY explanation, because we have done NO testing to conclusively prove one way or another.


@Blaine91555

Absence of evidence does not mean evidence of absence.

it only means absence of evidence.

We can no more claim that it is NOT chi energy, than we can claim that it IS chi energy...

We just don't know.


Wanting something to be true, does not make it so.


Yes, but Wanting something to be FALSE does not make it so either.

@Kaytagg

Do you see the word I heighlihted in your quote?

Assume....

Science does not assume, because assumption is not scientific.

Assumption is all well and good for your personal BELIEFS, but for science, Assumption and BELIEF is not good enough.

Science is Latin for KNOWLEDGE.

If you are arriving at a conclusion WITHOUT knowledge that the Conclusion is TRUE, then you are not practicing science...

You are practicing Faith.

Thats not strange logic to me what so ever.. Everything in this world is mass produced.. Exploited and taken advantage of..

These people who passed this art down through the ages understand many things. And one of those things is most people are not ready for such knowledge.. It would be misused and cashed in on.. Whored out if you will.. No these are proud people.. Who are not whores..

I will give you one name who broke this code..
Bruce Lee..

And look what happened to him, and his son for breaking this age old code.. And it changed the world!! Bruce Lee could do many things that seemed like none sense.. He brought over knowledge that was unknown..
Leave it to Hollywood to exploit all that.. And Bring the curse down upon him and his son..

Belive me or not.. But there is something to this science fails to understand right now..
And more over.. Im starting to become jaded by science.. I was at one time.. All for science.. But many science based people in here are acting like a bunch of bible thumpers!!

You guys have alot to learn about the world and universe..
Its not all religion.. Its not all science..
Its honestly a little of both..

I know its hard to grasp.. But its not my problem.. I have traveled the world, and places far out of the way.. I have seen and FELT it first hand..

I was honored to have done so.. I would never break that bond by exploiting for cash.. Or material goods.. No I have more honor than that.

Very true but it fall on deaf ears. It is not a matter of information they have it is a matter of perspective. They believe themselves to be bastions of truth when they cant even look at themselves to see that they are just as bad as organised religious people. Their idea of logic is not actual logic, their thought patterns dont make sense and see the world in little compartments that will never bring about any universal truths. Their egos have them.

So what exactly is this "Chi Energy"

We are led to believe that through meditation or thought it is created.

Apparently "Chi Energy" is exactly like "The Force" in Star Wars.

"Chi Energy" can raise the temperature of objects

It can break the known laws of physics by changing a persons weight without reducing mass.

It can create an invisible "field" or telepathic manipulation of objects.

Sounds pretty amazing.

But the people who are able to do these things use it ....to....entertain tourists...for....money?

Cool. Like Jesus running a casino.

I once saw a chi master named Criss Angel make himself lighter and walk across water.


Hmm, interesting how ignorant you are friend. I for one am a martial artist, and I can tell you there is some truth to chi. We really don't care if believe us or not, we know it works, that's all that matters. Have fun being the typical human. I like to excel at life, not just live it.

Please will one of the believers and science bashers please answer my question? If evidence doesn’t matter then why aren’t you out worshiping ever religion going?

Then why are you publicising it? If you don’t care why tell us? That goes for you and the people making videos like that in the OP.

For myself.. I think I made myself pretty clear on the front page.. If you can not be bothered to take the time to read that stuff.. Im not wasting any more time on this thread fighting with close minded children..

So please take a look back to page 1.. Right under the OP.. Pretty much will tell you what Im about.. I can not speak for others..
But Ive been here since 2006 and tearing down almost every BS thread that comes up with Hey I can do this or that..
Please take some damn time and research my posts and threads before you assume anything...

Have fun bickering and pandering all day long.. Im out!
Peace!


Its insulting not only to me but others to be grouped up with the "Oh I think Criss Angel is FOR REAL crowd..." "I belive in Magic Crowd!"
It honestly pisses me off, and shows me just how closed minded and childish some of you people really ARE...

There are a lot of martial artists and illusionsists who can do tricks and use skills that look like qi is being used. I covered this in an earlier post and nobody who doesant believe in qi has attempted to answer any of the questions posed.

Any large exertion of qi is dangerous and breaking concentration can easily lead to death. It is not performed for laughs. Heard about the Tibetan monks? They can apparently make themselves light and run in excess of fifty miles per hour. If you take pictures they will loose concentration and die.

Think about why indiginous tribes, when seeing cameras in use thought that they "steal the soul". These ideas do not spring up out of sheer ignorance. Like mirrors ( notice how the Chinese use mirrors to ward off evil and other cultures use them to see past lives, or if you break one you get 7 years bad luck ) they affect the light and subtle energy forces in the area.

I am technically a scientist (chemist). I am also a believer, and I believe eyewitness testimony is pretty strong evidence.

I have witnessed chi in action. You can read my earlier post for my experience. I will also relate another personal story.

Several years ago I was seriously burned. I have skin grafts over 23% of my body. One particular area (my elbo) would not heal; it was regrafted several times. I happened to be researching alternative medicine about a year after the burn for a speech I was giving. An acupuncturist offered to heal my elbow for free! I called my surgeon, and he encouraged me to give it a try. "Surrounding the Dragon" was performed on my elbow with electrical stimulus crossing over the raw area. The practitioner told me this would stimulate the "chi" in that area and encourage healing.

The rawness was gone within a week, and it was completely healed within a month! That was after repeated attempts through traditional medicine. My surgeon and therapist were thrilled, and they promised to relate my story to their other patients.

Edit to add:
I do strongly care if you believe me or not. I don't care what your opinion of the believers is, but I care that something like acupuncture, or massage, or herbal medicine could make you feel better!

Please look up how acupuncture is used to treat appendicitis. It was even used on a president's wife!

Come on friend you and I both know the answer to this question.

Faith has absolutely nothing to do with rationality or Science. The person who answers this question truthfully has just jumped off the cliff and challenged their own beliefs to the very core and foundation.

Like the Kool-Aid man bursting through the bible. Suddenly you look through the hole and see a whole other world.

I didn't realize the Ancient Chinese had aluminum foil thousands of years ago
.....learn something new everyday. Oh well, off to make my seal testicle tea...me and the missus are hopin' to have a baby and need every bit of help we can get
sarcasm off

Seriously, I don't discount "chi" type energy, but why does he need tin foil/paper towel, that is whetted with some substance? Can he preform the same exhibition with out the aids? Why won't he submit to controlled testing? If this power exists and this guy is a Master, wouldn't he want to teach this ability to as many people as possible to help mankind...........I'm calling HOAX and simple trickery.....that is something that the ancient Chinese are famous for.......back to my seal testicle tea......

I don't know if that would mean anything. Chris Angel walked on water for crying out loud, so I'm sure there are ways around it. Who knows really?


Yes but if this guy would have stepped on plexiglas then we would've seen it.
