What do you really know about Criss Angel? He's one of the most famous magicians of our time, but Criss Angel's story is interesting outside of magic, too.
Here's the untold truth of Criss Angel.
Most magicians get their start as kids. After all, when you're a kid, adults are much more likely to applaud your efforts - even when they can tell that you just switched the cards behind your back.
But some kids are blessed with parents who support their interest long enough for them to cultivate some serious skills. Well, Criss Angel must have had some incredibly supportive parents, because he started practicing magic at the age of 7 and never gave up on it.
According to Biography, Angel, who was still called Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos back in those days, first became interested in magic after his aunt showed him a card trick. He later said he was drawn to the "incredible sense of power, that an adult didn't understand how it worked, but I did."
Angel practiced until he had enough material for a whole show. By the age of 12, he was all ready for his first performance. He even collected a ten dollar fee for his services. So what's the takeaway here? Criss Angel became a magician because he liked having power over people, and he was pretty much always in it for the money. Basically, he was already living the American dream before he even hit puberty.

When I was 8 my dad did this magic trick where he disappeared. I'm 30 now and he still hasn't shown up. Best trick ever. I can't wait to see him again and ask him how he did it. Love you dad ❤

He was able to cash in on video-editing when people weren't really exposed to altered "live tv" lies. He's not even an impressive magician.

He’s not a magician he practices Satanism. He’s not a mind freak it’s all demonic! There’s a limit to how far can a magician perform,he has Crossed the line so many times, and people still believe that it’s an illusion it’s not. He even mocked Jesus Christ by walking on water!! Yes he has sold his soul to devil to achieve the impossible. They all do period.

​@Clair Beth Not a surprise then (that you are a "hardcore" atheist - as you said). InMyOpinion, catholic cristianity (in general) is the furthest awayfrom the real things ever. In india, Jesus is respected as a great teacher and Yogi, with great knowledge, and purity. In buddhist rounds, He is knows as Saint Issa , "the best of humans" - also respected as a great teacher, and spiritual leader. In india, there are different looks about God, some believe that, He is not "he" (not a person), but a Great Energy, and some believe that, He is a person, but not only He, but She is also in the mean time. . Then years ago, when my life and health went down, I turned to God, and got baptised, but during the years after, I realised, something is wrong with all of it. Lot later, I started to discover different "religions" and philosophy, indian and eastern philosophy, and understood parts, are never mentioned in the bible, and by the catholic leaders. These knowledge pulled real knowledge, and understaning to my life, about myself, and basically everything. . I do not codemnt anyone (also not you) for being an atheist, you have your owne reasons, as you expressed, but would recommend only one thing; do not make a final opinion or statement about God and spiritual things, without a sneek-peek into the eastern knowledge and philosophy, and the more than 3000 books and scripts, what was excluded from the bible what we call bible today. . Doing that (making a firm statement without reading those) would be a great mistake and loss for you. Not for me, since Im good now with that I already know, but for you and anyone who just keep to be atheist without knowing real things instead of catholic "bullshit".

Tibor Reszegi nah my dude, I’m good thanks, I’m a hardcore atheist. Being raised in an extremely Catholic household and going to a catholic boarding school gave me enough religion to last a lifetime.

I don't think this man's devotion to Magic is the same as devotion to Evil. There aren't a lot of spiritual teachers who can or will or would take him on as a connection to the Cosmic. :) God says to me, "This man does no deliberate harm to anyone. Let him come. Let his grieving Spirit come also Who suffered the Lyran extinction and betrayal at Titan, yes."

Many might disagree, I find his magic really amazing and very entertaining. He had a couple bumps in the road personally, who has not? Bottom line the guy is a great entertainer if you are into that sort of stuff as am I, and don't give two shits about his personal life.

Demons are spirits therefore they are unobservable unless they decide otherwise. The magic is performed by the demons, the magicians are just the mediums. Demons can transform into anything they like, including into insects. That I have witnessed with my own eyes at my home, roughly about 3 pm ...And I'm not a magician...One hot summer afternoon I sprayed an annoying blowfly, "I've sprayed many blow-flies", but this one was slightly larger than any other fly I've seen, soon, it went berserk and it flew wildly as it banged itself from wall to wall and upwards into the ceiling, finally after roughly 30-seconds-time it hit the solid ceiling for the final time and disappeared without a trace and without leaving any mark on the ceiling whatsoever, I was dumbfounded and I just couldn't believe what I've just witnessed... Whether or not, the strange blowfly was a demon or an insect from the spirit world, I don't know. ...Believe it or not. it's a fact. I believe it was a demonic invitation for me to get involved in magic...No thanks!

The real story, of Chris Angel and a number of other world-class magicians is told on Video Titled..."Magicians prove the spirit world exist-demonic activity caught on video"...That video exposes the real secrets of magic... The video above is designed as a distraction from the facts.
