Wong's forum shared... I altruisticly give back
"There are millions of blackjack players who all think they have some edge in some way. Some of them will get lucky for short, or long periods if very lucky. The ones that don't aren't going to come on here and proclaim their genius. ..............I'm being generous here and assuming you aren't just making it up, though God knows we get a lot of that.

You might contemplate, WHY so many diligently study this science and have been so passionate about it? Were they people who were forced to read the books like Moslems are forced to study the Koran? Are these students of the art coerced like the once USSR to beleive in Atheism? Or is it slightly or very possible there is a grey area in most west of Constainople of something they can't understand. If we were born in India, where every family consults one as much as Americans go to the gas station, I guarentee you'd partly understand.
So here is some interesting websites about the Science and legend of William F. Lilly. A Man who was escorted to Parliment because of his prediction, later accepted by that governmental body and allowed to practice his art despite it technically being illegal in England in the 17th century:
