I was having a deadly argument battle with a friend the other day, about thought reading. Thought reading is different than mind reading apparently, yet I think it should fall under the category of mind reading, as tomatos do with fruit - or is it really vegetable? I'll just call it bullshit.
You can watch the '60 minutes' video and give me your point of view. Now I don't know if '60 minutes' is a trustworthy show - one way or another, since skepticism crept into my life, I doubt everything.
I can't seem to understand why Mr Salem would hide his tricks if there really was magic behind them. Would it not be better to think that what he hides is not magic? Why don't they ever show how the magic is done? It would revolutionise the way we think. But no, you have to buy his book instead, which probably doesn't explain the tricks he performs on television and live shows.
I can't believe I just spent like half an hour typing this up. My head is on slo-mo mode... so I probably missed 90% of the stuff my friend and I argued about, and I'll have to get back at y'all's.
So, aside from his body language detecting stuff which isn't all that impressive, what do you say?
