not spirits of the people who actually died but demons who prey on those vulnerable to play with their beliefs of the afterlife, this is a very good possibility, it would be hard to explain it in the strong cases of reincarnation where the child, usually starting at 2-3 years of age until 6 to 7 recalls events that occurred in a life before he was even born along with evidence of physical birthmarks or birth defects related to the death of the person he has memories of plus also phobias related to that mode of death, evil entities cannot read our minds and can't directly put any thoughts in our heads

what if demons are just aliens? what if aliens are really sasquatches that are more technolgically advanced than us? What if sasquatches are just ghosts of ancient hominids? What if?

Seriously, calling "demon" on the unexplained is a lot like the 21st century version of blaming everything on witchcraft. Christian Demons aren't real... they are just religious boogey-men made up to scare people.

Ghosts are not just demons. Sounds like a religious thing. Ghosts are dead people and animals. If they were bad in life then they are bad in death.

Ghosts are definitely not demons. I believe that demons were made up by some religious people to keep their flock under control. It makes for great movies for sure.

This is sci-fi religious fantasy material.

different creature.
haunting is not the role of demons.
demons like people and are attracted to them they dont just do appearances they work with people and actually help them albeit often with negative consequences.
they are attracted to tendencies u already have and amplify them, unless u reject them u will become more and more like them.
they have no moral conscious they are only a force, like hurricanes.
people that have demons are often feared by many and seem to have extraodinary ability.

Oh they're definitely not? Face it, no one on this forum should be speaking in definites, at least not relating to their beliefs of the paranormal. Remember this next time someone mocks your belief in ghosts, elementals, etc.

You believe, fine. My question is, what is that belief based on, personal experience or religious teachings?

I've had many experiences in my life, not one of them was "demonic".

I'm pretty sure that if your belief was correct, my mother would have popped in for a visit by now.

Oh geez. I believe they are not demons. Demons are more of a movie type creature. I really do NOT believe in their existence. That is just my opinion. As for someone mocking my belief in ghosts, they already do. And I don't really care anymore, since I know what I have experienced.
