RE: What are your views on Demonic Possession and Ghosts/Spirits?
If a person is convinced that they are possessed by a demon or Elvis, then they may very well behave in a very odd manner.

Ghosts - that small mouse or raccoon in the attic that makes sounds you can't explain at 2:00 am when you are 12 and don't understand how the world works.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

But in the real world there is no reason to believe in their existence. Just a bunch of signals that our highly impressionable minds misconstrue.

If there is such a thing as ghosts, I want to become one.

Sounds like a lot of woo.

I'm immune to demon possession. There's only room for one.

I'll be reminding you that you said that, when you'll be begging me to let you join my ghostly adventures.

Zombies are weak sauce. Weak. Sauce. And they are grossly overdone. I don't know how many zombies I've killed in video games, but it is a lot. Plus zombies lack personality. Ghosts and vampires can at least have individuality, but not zombies. They are a horde. That is weak.

For different reasons. CGI great Danes are not my style.

Gasp Sacrilege Tongue I am a huge fan of the zombie genre. Night of the Living Dead is my all time favorite Halloween movie. I love George Romero. I think the fact that zombies lack personality makes them even more scary. They are just killing (and eating) machines. But I like vampire movies too (Lost Boys, Interview with a Vampire).

RE: What are your views on Demonic Possession and Ghosts/Spirits?
My personal view on the demon possessed and ghosts is that they should never be voted into public office if at all possible to avoid doing so. Transparency in gov't is usually a good thing but there are limits. But the upcoming elections may require discarding this general rule if one is determined to vote for something if not necessarily a somebody. Tongue
