People of other religions may have supernatural experiences. There are demons that are capable of causing such things.

On a side note, no one should ever believe any stories about supernatural signs if they do not conform to the Bible. The Bible is how we are to test the spirits. The fact that real supernatural occurrences can be seen among non-Christians in no way undermines our own faith. Really, it strengthens it, by showing that supernatural events do happen.

We already did this one. Given that none of this 'evidence'in the Gospels is reliable (especially Luke's nativity ) it is more liikely (on the face of it) that the Gospels are more mendacious than the Quran. So Islam looks less satanic than the Gospels, on bald evaluation.

I didn't bother to watch the video on belief in demons.
(a) the mind plays tricks - serious tricks.
(b)even if these visions were reflecting reality, you can't be sure that they are 'demons'rather than say - some unknown species or even aliens that didn't exist on our normal terrestrial environment.
(c) even if Demons they were, that doesn't prove any one religion - just like an afterlife, soul or even a sorta-god does not validate any particular religion.

I could call myself a Scottish man. Does that make me one?

What if I wore a kilt?

Yeah, the kilt would convince some simple people. LOL.

No true Scotsman would be seen without a kilt these days. Perhaps in the bygone years when being "true" meant something different.
