I'm going to pose a series of questions. My regular readers and friends who stop by will probably see this exercise as very odd, even odder than my normal esoteric ramblings. I very much want to see what responses you all have on this topic and appreciate you taking the time to respond in the comments. My main objective is to see if anyone has meaningful insight into my last question.
Do you believe in creatures/beings called "demons"?
Why and/or how do you know they are real?
In what ways do they interact with humans?
Do you think it is possible for a demon to interact with one human in order to harm a different human?
If you answered in the affirmative to any of the above, how do you tell the difference between demonic influence and mental illness apart from a medical condition caused by normal physical phenomena?
Any other thoughts you may have along these lines are appreciated too.
