Putting aside intelligence specifically... the main point I'm trying to make is if you are psychic then you have the ability to impress and entertain to an extremely high level. You can do those things without revealing your abililities by instead giving alternatives explanations for a few of your tricks and hiding them for the bigger ones, that is what Derren does currently. All of the above has one end result, lots of money.


I'll abandon the discussion now for the sake of my own sanity.

I'll concede. Your argument that Derren is a psychic that hides his ability from the world, who also debunks psychics, is one I'm unable to counter.

The logic is bullet proof.

Ah sorry, I think you misunderstood my last rebuttal and that is my fault.

I wasn't saying Derren is psychic, I was just saying he hides the explanations for his bigger tricks, that was the only intended meaning behind including him in that post.

As I said earlier, I think the explanation that Derren is a psychic is probably the least likely. I'm arguing about a hypothetical scenario.

Bear in mind (probably a point already been made) that the whole point is to make you wonder how he does it.....

Anyone who feels it necessary to change their name from Darren to Derren to aid their career is a tw*t...

That is all

Everything is a name if you want it to be... Names are so important when trying to become famous, I don't think he did anything unusual for someone in his position.

He changed his name after he became famous...  I agree anything is a name if you want it to be, but it doesn't stop hims being a tw*t - although not on the same scale as David Wotsisface in the glass box.  Get a proper job the pair of you!!

I don't understand how you can call him a twat, he appears to be a very honest, respectful and polite person.
