There’s no magic with psychics

Posted in News by Skepdude on January 25, 2009

Keith Barry is the first to admit that what he does isn’t for real.

He is not a magician. Yet, I’m sure you too have been baffled and bewildered by what he can appear to do, if you’ve seen him in action on stage or on TV.

He can ‘read’ your mind, drive a car blindfolded, knows what you were thinking last Tuesday. He can turn one substance into another, create something out of nothing. He can make you believe that the laws of physics are suspended when he’s around, or that you’ve gone a little bonkers, maybe.

Yet, none of it is real. Keith is an illusionist, a brilliant one. This is because there is no such thing as magic, not outside of fairytale books, at least.

    Being psychic and being a magician is two totally different things. People watch too much TV.

    Actually I agree. A psychic is a dishonest and really lame magician, in my humble view.
