I'll say this much: Mike is super in his presentational skills. (No pun intended).

We as performers know it's all an act. But Mike keeps such a straight face when he tells about Desmond visiting him as a child, etc, that I can pretty much understand how those lacking in critical thinking abilities might be duped. But I can see Mike's perspective too, that he had to do more than "just tricks" if he hoped to win. His presentational skills were the best thing he had going for him. They were his ace in the hole.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

IMHO, Mike seemed to have stronger routines once he dumped Desmond per Howard Stern's advice. I remember Mike appearing to agree with Howard's remark that his performance was better without Desmond.

It is "funny" but levitation effects seem to be among the tricks that cause the greatest furor for those with issues with illusionists. I tend to steer clear of doing those effects in churches that are okay with me doing gospel illusions, just to keep focus on the message and not allow dissent to form.
As far as these videos it is sad to see the overreactions and lack of attention to what the bible actually says. On the bright side it was a great video to see some great cooperfield magic. Wish he would do a new TV special!!!

Does anyone here use a routine to explain the difference between magic tricks and real black magic? I'd like to read about how you explain it and which routine you use.

I'm not convinced that there is such a thing as "real black magic."
