As one of Jehovah's Witnesses you were told that it was wrong to watch magic shows because they use demons to perform their tricks. Moreover, for most JWs the proof that demons are real is one of the most faith solidifying realities you can have, because you figure if there are demons doing paranormal things then the Bible and God must be real. But what if you found out that not a single magician actually used any supernatural powers or demons at all? Prepare to lose your belief in demonic magic and take one step closer to realizing that no proof of anything paranormal exists.
For starters, let's use a little common sense; do you really think that magicians could realistically rely on demons to give them the supernatural power to perform magic tricks without worrying that they might get caught on stage one day with nothing working? Sounds silly, doesn't it? The reality is that the magic they really rely on is actually meticulously practiced illusions, complex tricks with sophisticated mechanical apparatus, and sleight of hand.
However, to really know this for sure, wouldn’t you love to get to hear it from the best very magicians directly? Well guess what, you can! Penn & Teller (both atheists) Criss Angel (closet atheist), and 'The Amazing' James Randi (also atheist) are all world-renowned as some of the best magicians ever. So follow the videos links below to not only hear them talking about the fact that all magic is fake and that even they do not believe in anything supernatural, but also to get to see how some of the most famous magic tricks are actually done! The James Randi Foundation even offers a $1,000,000 prize to anyone who can show, under proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power or event.
Consider this one last point; If Jehovah's Witnesses are God's spirit-directed organization, then why would they not know that magic is fake? Why would they be telling you that watching men do simple tricks would cause demons to come into your home? Decide for yourself.
