  1. Thanks – I’m a pro magician/juggler, but I wasn’t aware of this survey until I saw your post. I’ll pass the link on to a bunch more magicians.

  2. Interesting… of course, anyone on the Skepchick reading list is almost certainly skeptical of all of these things. I guess the question is, in general, are magicians more skeptical than most? (I am a pro magician, BTW.)

    I think they are. However, I have met magicians that, while they don’t believe in spirits, mind-reading, etc., still (sadly) believe in 9/11 conspiracies, CAM, etc.
