I find that simply false, sorry. Legends come from the same place fictional stories come from, in part.

Legends vs Fiction

Some legends leave behind evidence like the works of Homer, greek storyteller, who wrote about Ulysses and the Trojan War. Someone eventually found Troy the city using archeology. However not everything about those legends has been verified. Not all legends have elements of fiction.

i read the posts from a while ago about david blaine that cast him in a dubious light; but to be honest he was my first choice too. i find him compelling because of something i heard him say in an interview; that he had a lonely childhood and took solace in the library for most of his youth. connected with some of the bizarre stunts he pulls, i think it's possible that his natural inclination towards street magic (sleight of hand illusions) blended with other kinds of 'magics' (meditation, psionics, hypnotism, etc), of which there might have been books about in the aforementioned libaray. at least in my public library, there are lots of books on the fringe type sciences; i don't think it's out of the question that he could have found at least one book on the powers of the mind or subconscious, and put it to use.

that being said, i voted for edgar cayce because he's fantastic and i have no doubts about his legitimacy. :]

David Blaine is a self confessed illusionist. He doesn't claim to use anything other than trickery to achieve his results.

An HONEST faker, now that I like. :)

You think I don't know. Well, maybe you're wrong. Maybe I'm wrong.

But assuming you are always right always puts you in the wrong.

Because assume just makes an ass of u and me.

I personally love Uri Geller. People have suspected he's a fraud and shown how his tricks can be duplicated, however, nobody has actually been able to prove that he IS using a certain technique to replicate spoon bending. I recommend watching the documentary on his secret life if you're still skeptical. But I love Uri Geller, Joe McMoneagle, and Pat Price. They are all former members of the STARGATE project, created by the CIA, to use psychic spies during the Cold War. The results have been mixed, and the government claims that they stopped using it due to low success results. However, despite that, these psychic spies I named have repeatedly been successful. Not only that, but ESP tests have shown several test subjects to display extraordinary abilities above chance. The only reason the government may have publicly rejected them is perhaps because they aren't perfect, and these operations have little margin for error.

However, some evidence has given room to conspiracy theories around whether the government may still be secretly using these spies to locate wanted suspects, and aren't reported: For one thing, it was only declassified after the public had caught wind of it around 1995. Uri Geller and Joe McMoneagle are two former STARGATE agents who have also claimed that the government once again asked them for help after 9/11, so it's possible that they are still using psychics at least to a certain extent. We all know that governments may go to great extents to fight a national enemy/uphold national defense.

Yeah, he's a very special guy. Not perfect but big on the caring side.

I did manage to say hi on the internet while he was living in the UK, but we never met up or did stuff. Fair play, I had my life, he had his life.

His book "My story" is very enlightening, and while some of his stuff was illusion (he took a lot of stick about his Stanford testing) some was also very real.

Pat Price died in the 70s, Joe McM was reported by Lyn Buchanan as being severely smashed up in a car crash some weeks ago. Mind you, Joe McM landed on his arse from a helicopter in SE Asia in the 60s and has been dicing with death all his life. Perhaps he just needed that to happen to get some new surgical method to improve his quality of life? Could be.

Nina I'm unsure of. I think some days she could, some days she couldn't. Maybe.
