Evaluate the explanations that they have presented in light of the material from the chapter. See if you agree with their reasoning. Is there anything about their explanation that you feel does not account for all of the data? Does their explanation seem to be plausible in light of everything else that is known about the world? What other explanation might better or more simply explain the issue in question? 5 sentences or more.



The topic of this discussion will be magic. I’m not talking about Harry Potter or Gandalf magic, I’m talking about the David Blaine, Criss Angel, Harry Houdini type of magic. Is it real, is it an illusion, who knows? Its entertaining and cool to watch even if you’re just trying to figure out how it works.

Criss Angel he can levitate his body above the ground.

Magic would explain how he is able to do this.

There is no other explanation for how he can actually levitate.

Therefore, Criss Angel uses magic to levitate, making magic real.
