Card tricks, soldiers, and Jeebus

Yesterday I saw this video:

The video is of this guy named Justin Flom, and he really does seem to be a decent illusionist. I checked out some of his other videos and his website, and I enjoyed watching his work.

Most of his content is completely nonreligious and quite entertaining. But those videos are only garnering a couple thousand views each. The video above has more than 4 million views, and it’s the one I find least impressive. It’s the old “God and country” routine, and I’m just not buying it.

Flom obviously knows that his magic tricks are just illusions masking reality; does he realize what a perfect metaphor he has made for his religion?
