Magic

Magic is a form of belief that uses spells and acts that have an effect to make people believe that supernatural forces are at work.  Magic can be seen as an art form or rituals that make it seem an unnatural force is present.  Some magic can be seen as dark or evil and create harm to others; other magic can be seen as good such as making crops grow and healing sick people.
