How do you know?

Have you defined 'magic' in such a way that it simply is de facto, necessarily impossible, therefore magic is a meaningless (empty) concept? If so, then you are being dishonest here.

If you have not done that, then how would you define magic, and how would you know that this thing you defined is necessarily unreal?

I know because children learn that shit before they're old enough to ride a bike. It doesn't take a fucking philosopher to realize that magic isn't real.
