Is Magic just "Tricks?"

Is Magic just a bunch of "Tricks?"

Many of us use the word "Magic Trick" Lets look at it's definition:


a crafty or underhanded device, maneuver, stratagem, or the like, intended to deceive or cheat; artifice; ruse; wile.

to cheat or swindle (usually followed by out of):

to trick someone out of an inheritance.

Do YOU really want to use the Word "Trick" anymore? Look at the definition above and think again. So, the next time, when you walk up to someone and say, "Hey, wanna see a Magic Trick?" Think about this again. 

Saying Magic is nothing more but "Tricks" also implies that when you do a "fake manoeuvre" in Basketball to someone, do you mean playing Basketball is a Trick? No, right?

Instead, you could say, "Hey, wanna see some Magic?" "Would like to see some Card Magic?" "Hey, let me show you some Magic!"

That is why, in most of the videos that I produce, I try my very best to NOT use the word "TRICK" instead, just "Magic" or "Effect". Hope you do the same!
