How do you explain Criss Angel and his jesus moves?

Samian's Sixth Account

Uhm, dumb people who’ll give them money?

extton

…they don’t really exist. Clairvoyance doesn’t exist, and no one can talk to spirits.

Frou Frou

eaisly,
can be any number of possibilities, such as what i beleive that we have and there is an energy in existence that we have or harness, and it means we have abilities such as these
i dont believe in god, i do however believe in the possibility in plenty other things

pab

“real existance”
that assumption is false
spirits are figments of the human imagination and psychics are frauds that are good at tricking people

Swarm

Most atheists disbelieve in such things.

Diane the Succubus (PFLAG)

Please site a reputable source for “real” clairvoyance and/or spirit mediums….

Goofball Tigger

well, who knows what the Universe has in store for us. But clearly, if spirits exist – it does NOT mean there is a god

it0wer

If you can gather some spirits together to go out to lunch, ill believe you.

SOUTH PARK JESUS

Easy: clairvoyance and spirit mediums are not real. Clairvoyance is a myth, mediums are clever (or not so clever) con artists.

Crimson_Crisis

really? THAT’S your proof? some people pretending?

Ms Minger

Easy peasy lemon squeazy.
They’re all fecking fakes.

Mr. Wednesday

How do you explain them? lol People that say vague things that other people want to hear, and then they think OMFSM!! They know all about me!! Yeah that works.

Violation Notice

fraud..thats how

adam s

that’s assuming that they’re real and not just something drempt up by people with overactive imaginations.

Soulless

I don’t. I leave the explaining of the real existence of fictional beings to the theists.

Law & Order: Intarwebz Unit

There is no evidence that either exists. Every single ‘psychic’ I’ve heard of has been proven to be a fraud — Uri Miller, Sylvia Browne, Alison Dubois (yes, Medium is based on a real person), etc.

Delgarits

I don’t try to explain the existence of clairvoyance and spiritual mediums because I dont believe in them. There is no credible evidence.

just curious

the real existence? such as who?

The Lone Piper !!!

You need to first prove to me that Spirts exist then we can talk..

Caboose

You need to prove their real existence first.

JOExHIGASHI

Fraud

Ignatius J. Reilly

Smoke and mirrors. It’s all a trick. THere has NEVER been any scientifically proven Clairvoyant or Medium.

Everard G

I think you do NOT know what you’re on about.
Clairvoyants and spirit mediums are NOTHING without television cameras, smoke, mirrors and a really gullible audience.
I have NOT heard of a clairvoyant picking the winning lotto numbers.
I have NOT hear of a spirit medium finding pirate treasure after having a conversation with a ‘dead pirate’.

desainte76

They’re frauds.
How come none have ever been able to prove their abilities under controlled conditions?

Hurley

No one can prove they are real, i mean i know that people claim to be able to talk to the dead, and those people are real.
But there is no way to tell that they are telling the truth. I would have to talk to one myself to find out for sure, but it would be ridiculously easy to plant a few people in the audience of a TV show to make everyone else think they are real. Or to just pick a random highly common name and say you knew a “John” that is now dead

miyuki & kyojin

Clairvoyance is not real, and spirit mediums are obvious frauds. Houdini and Randi have both exposed many of them as frauds. There is nothing real to explain here.

Mongolian...

They are genuine fakes. If that isn’t oxymoron enough for you.

Bushrod Isbister

Remember, Atheists “religion” requires that such things not exist. So they simply will not accept the existence of such people no matter how much evidence there is. You may ask yourself the question though, does God have to exist for ESP or life after physical death to exist?

andrew f

As an atheist I can’t, but then just because somebody is somehow able to access information in a way yet to be understood rationally. doesn’t mean there is some sort of Higher power up there making everything work. That’s rarther like the ancients saying that God caused storms (rather than occlusional weather fronts), earthquakes (rather than plate tectonics). illness (rather than viruses)… I could go on. There ARE more tyhings in Heaven and earth than are dreamt of in our worldly philosophies, but we would be silly to try to explain everything we don’t understand yet as being the Work of the Almighty

skeptik

Uhh …
Define “real existence.”

Gembird

No medium or clairvoyant has ever managed to replicate their results under controlled laboratory conditions, suggesting they’re full of crap. I explain the existence of these people like so: They think they can make a few quid out of taking advantage of the recently bereaved and other vulnerable people. That’s why mediums exist. And most of them are closer to a large than a medium anyway.

davidifyouknowme

What?
Where is the reputable evidence of either clairvoyance or that medium have contact with anything other than their imagination and their victim’s wallet?
Anyway, why has an atheist got to explain these things?

Sage

Err!!! Are you really a christian?!! What you speak of is against everything in christianity and nothing to do with atheists!!
Try putting your thinking head on and starting again!!!

marineboy63

How would you explain them when the bible condemns them as sins?

Mabel B

It is something that cant be explained

chanel

What does believing in god have to do with clairvoyance. I don’t see the connection at all. Humans can have an extra sense without god being responsible for it. That could easily be classified as science.
