According to the bible, demons and ghosts are real. If you base your logic upon the chronology of the events demons have been here AFTER humans were upon the planet. So its impossible according to the bible, for ghosts and demons to be one and the same. Do I think they are real, um yeah but demon is a rather ambiguous name. I call them non human negative entities.

Umm and people believe in demons because of their own experiences and/or religious beliefs. How is that any different from your own beliefs? Furthermore, do you disbelieve everything that you haven't experienced or just things related to religions that you dislike?

I have never in my life seen a demon, so to me, they are not real. To someone else, maybe they are. Show me proof. You know, there is a site somewhere, where a guy is going to give someone a million dollars if they can show proof that ghosts exist, or the afterlife, plus other weird paranormal themed things.
The only problem with his site, if you cannot show proof, they do not let you sign on to their forum. If you do sign up, they delete you.
I can't recall the name of it right now, but if you do a search, you may find it.

Well, you can't know for sure if you haven't seen a demon (after all, they would be unlikely to reveal themselves as evil..)

The same can be said to Christians -that we can't be sure that spiritual entities are not really ghosts. People of all faiths can be judgemental though, but people usually just assume it's the Christians being so and not Wiccans, New Age people, etc.

That does sound like an interesting site. The reality is none of us have the type of proof that could convince the world so we should respect each others' beliefs. Deal?

While I do not believe that ghosts are demons... I do believe that demons are all too real. There are evil things in the paranormal world, just as there are evil people in this world. Without the dark we would not be able to see the light. Yin & yang and all that jazz.

I'm not too afraid of demons though becuase although I do believe they exist, I don't think they are common!

Yea, that guy is as much a fraud as the poeple he usually "tests". Just because we humans haven't figured out a way to "Prove" spiritual entities exist, does not mean they don't exist... it only proves we are limited in our understanding and technologies.

I have had experiences with many types of creatures, none of which would fall into the category of demon or ghost.. but they were real. I wasn't the only one who could "see" them and I wasn't the only one who dealt with them. Some of these creatures were good and nice and some were bad and mean. One threw my baby off the couch when he was taking a nap! Nearly threw him 3 feet away from the couch. It was insane! But it wasn't a devil or demon, but it wasn't nice either!

And what is it that you've experienced.

Can you describe the creature and its actions in more detail? I've never heard of anything like this, and I listen to plenty of "alternative" media on my long drives to visit family.

Also, since you believe in demons AND "not nice" creatures, what is the dividing line for you?
