Demons?!
Hey, how's it going? My normal atheist forum is down for maintenance and I got tired of waiting to post so I decided to come here (basically the same place) to ask a question (pardon the quick/non-existent into) of the bible thumpers out there: what're your all's deals with demon possession and the like? I mean since the dawn of the information age, the sightings of demons have drastically decreased in number to the point that I hardly believed in demons WHILE I was christian.

Where did they all go? I mean, if I was the devil I would make sure that I was as quiet as possible since the beginning of time just to disprove god and bring more people to my side. So why was he almost omnipresent in the old days and now gone suddenly quiet?

I think they've all been cast out and are living happily together in Oklahoma.

RE: Demons?!
I dunno about being possessed by demons....

But, I wouldn't mind possessing one ----

I don't know. I've seen no shortage of people online that will blame mundane things like schizophrenia, sleep paralysis, and sleep walking on demons. Fuck, I think I've even seen depression blamed for that.

They just believe the demons are invisible, just like their god.

RE: Demons?!
It's a nebulous concept for Christians, we even have a couple of theists on here that blame Satan for the deception that atheists have that doesn't acknowledge their delusion as fact.
I don't think the Christian world view would be near as successful if it didn't have Satan/demons to blame things on when the universe doesn't match their presuppositions or a bogeyman to scare people into believing.

Gods derive their power from post-hoc rationalizations. -The Inquisition

Using the supernatural to explain events in your life is a failure of the intellect to comprehend the world around you. -The Inquisition

I was possessed by a demon that was giving me stomach cramps, but then I farted him out and the cramps stopped.

RE: Demons?!
Demons are just misunderstood.

They wanna hide the truth and they want to shelter you. But, with the beast inside there's no where they can hide.

It's a conundrum.

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost
