Do you think that David Blame is involved in some sort of witchcraft?
Take into consideration that he practices his magic in the street and does things that are beyong of human logic such as levitating.
It is interesting that he went to south america to consult with some vodoo shamans.
Someone who believes in witchcraft is not stupid. Perhaps David Blain does tricks. But no one can tell that withcraft is not real, what about the OUIJA board, are you gonna say is just tricks? If you do not believe me, play it.

You know I've spoken to a Christian illusionist and he said it is all just illusion. It is so easy for people who believe in the supernatural to see something they don't understand and say, AHA! The devil is behind that. It is a comment that stems from ignorance. My aunt and family members had the same conversation. They were sure a lot of those tricks were Satanic until they went and saw another Christian illusionist, and he showed them how to do some tricks like that. They were blown away that they weren't really magic. I felt bad for them because when they jumped to that conclusion, it made them seem....well stupid.

Yes, there is no other explanation.
I remember catching part of a show once not knowing what it was and he bent over backwards with no support........
Needless to say............I grabbed my clicker!
This is part of a Questions From Readers from 1964:
One might start out performing simple tricks, but this could lead into practices that, knowingly or unwittingly, mimic the magical arts. One might duplicate by trickery real magical feats that are performed by demons, such as levitation, moving objects mysteriously, ectoplasmic materializations, and so forth. Such could lead into involvement with wicked spirit forces because it is playing at what the demons actually do.
Illustrating the danger of playing at anything that resembles demon activity is the experience of a woman in London. Her experience is described by Nandor Fodor in the book The Haunted Mind. This woman was fascinated by magic and hypnotism, and she had an extensive library on magical arts. The report says:
“I had a young boy staying with me who was a good hypnotic subject. I drew a magic circle, put him inside and sent him into hypnotic sleep. Then I commanded him to bring up the Devil! The boy writhed and cried. He was afraid. . . . Nothing happened in the first five hypnotic sessions. But the sixth time something did, and it frightened me out of my senses. In the magic circle a light appeared. Out of a luminous haze two eyes—as big as eggs—looked at me with an awful, penetrating look, a horrible expression. I asked hoarsely what it was. The boy answered—in a totally different voice—’the Evil that you conjured up speaks to you’. . . . I was so scared that I shrieked, ‘Go back, never come again! I will not permit you, I don’t want you!’ The light disappeared with a rushing sound, and things returned to normal. But I was white as chalk and for days afterward I felt that all the strength had gone out of me. The boy felt the same. Four or five times he felt that a power had tried to gain control of him.”
Toying with magical practices, even though one may be faking them, is highly dangerous, and is inviting the demons to put in an actual appearance, as they did in the case of a man who put on fake seances, only to discover that sometimes he actually performed mediumistic phenomena.—Clock Without Hands.

It's Blaine, not Blame. And no. His leviatating is a simple trick. Here's how you do it. Stand up. Put your feet together. Raise one foot about an inch. On the other foot, balance on the balls of your feet and raise your heel. Do this in front of someone who can't see the part of the foot you're resting on, and it will look like you're floating about an inch or so.
When he does the shows where he moves up in the air, he's using wires. He actually says that to the people in the audience, something like 'and now I'll show you how OTHER magicians do it'. But they don't show that part when airing it on TV.

No, hon, his "magic," if you call it that has to do with "illusions," of his various acts. So, many people go to South America to consult with Shamans, or, even Shamans in the USA.

It seems that way but I have a friend who also does street magic that absolutely INSISTS that he can logically explain everything David Blane does.
Of course he wont tell me the secrets but he swears it all slight of hand and illusion.

I can levitate just like him! It's easy, just stand a with your back facing the camera, slightly the side so the camera can't see one of your feet; then stand of one foot. Ooooh, ooooh, look! It's magic! I'm standing on one foot, look at me!
Witchcraft is as real as fairies and unicorns and Jesus. LOL, just kidding. Not really...
