Magic itself is the art of producing illusions as entertainment. It is obviously real because it is in existance. They are illusions. I do not believe there were such things as wizards who could use wands and such to do things and make things happen at will. I believe the only form of "magic" is God, and the only one capable of performing God-like happenings is God himself. Illusions are meant to decieve people into thinking it is actually happening; but the great thing about it.. is that it is not.Originally Posted by American Heritage Dictionary
So my obvious answer to this is NO magic isn't "real" per se. The illusions are what trick people into believing it is. But it isn't.
