Irish illusionist Keith Barry performs jaw-dropping “brain tricks” in this 2004 TED talk. It’s so amazing sometimes it’s hard to believe it’s nothing but deception of mind. Compared to this, deceitful “fortune tellers”, “healers”, “psychics” and other “magicians” look quite primitive, and yet they still succeed in fooling thousands (if not millions). Just goes to show how easy it is to be tricked. The “miracles” performed in the Bible which Christian Literalists believe, even if have “happened”, might have been quite simple tricks.
