comment Did the Rambam believe in magic?
@HaLeiVi it's at least clairvoyance. though some of these people get their clairvoyance from sorcery or other things. pharaoh was foretold by these people that the savior of the hebrews was imminent and that he would be smitten by water. was that also just clairvoyance? or a mix of other stuff too.

@DoubleAA i am amazed at how you can deny his black and white clear words that people with such prophetic powers do exist.

@DoubleAA not meant to be. just pointing out that these things do exist and presumably this is what the rambam refers to when he says "we see these things with our own eyes..". in any case, how do you undertand the words: אבל יתרון כל איש מהם על חברו, בהיות כל שקרי איש אחד פחות משקרי זולתו, אך שיצדקו בכל דקדוקי העתידות זה אי אפשר להיות

@mevaqesh i translate the bold "the superiority of one over the other is that his words contain less falsehood than the other.. and those with such powers..". i think you are letting your views distort his words. btw, such people exist even today as rav yaakov hillel also clearly states judaism.stackexchange.com/a/45058/1857
