"I have refrained from entering this debate because although I can perform this trick I cannot reveal the method. (It was taught to me by a Magic Circle Member with that condition)"
But maybe you can say what the method was not, and what the number of cards was. I have shown it is impossible as stated with 100 cards. Was a different number of cards used? Was the method that provided by Ady Tzidon or some other method? Perhaps it was done with chosen numbers in the abstract rather than strictly with cards, and if a large limit on the numbers' sizes, say 1000, the 5% error rate would have been deemed acceptable to magicians. In the instances of failure they could say the "psychic vibes" weren't working, and just try again.
