Todd White: Street Healer Fraud



Is "Todd White" a thing? I guess it's a thing.

Todd White is some guy who goes around performing "street healing" like he's David Blaine.

The most obnoxious part of this video happens around three minutes in. This Asian girl says she believes in evolution but she believes that *God* started evolution for a reason -- because there has to be scientific evidence for everything.

This becomes a challenge for Todd White. He proceeds to heal a back problem she claims to have because her legs are uneven. Grabs her legs and spouts off a lot of Abracadabra-Jesus blather... we *see* nothing, of course. We're just expected to believe she's been healed. Then he leans toward her and lays out his finishing blow:

"Now, you do me a favor. Can you scientifically explain what just happened?"

"No."

"You can't."

"No."

"Because... it's a miracle...?"

[Girl starts crying]

"Jesus loves you so much!"

So, it's not enough that she SAYS she believes in God while also studying science. He has to make her renounce science. This goofy, Adam-Durwitz-looking motherfucker needs to make her say that science cannot explain the Jesus-magic he just used on her to fix her gimpy leg.

Of course, science CAN explain what he did. It's the power of suggestion.

I understand it. He's exploiting street-magic type theatricality in order to inspire people and get them swayed toward his religion. But it's crazy bullshit.

Anyway, it may not be a thing. I may just be picking on a super-fringe entity.

Dude, Jesus is legit and so is Todd White. People get healed all the time. Maybe watch a few of Todd's sermons and you might change your mind. He loves people.

Look up Darren Brown, he shows clear video proof that what Todd White claims to be doing is a trick. No healing

Did she denounce science? I didn't hear her denounce science. Whether he is actually healing is another matter. Mysteriously it is impossible to find testimony from people that have 'been healed'..on the other hand, there is no one out there denying it either. Such is the case with most healing ministries only this one is not done in a church where people have to pay to enter and are rejected if they won't play the game up front. So hard to say.
