  • Angels, yes. Demons, yes, but not in the Christian sense. Possesion, kind of. I do feel that people who are emotionally weak can be manipulated by malevolent entities, but I don't think you can be possessed without your consent (wether conciously or sub-conciously).

  • Yes, just not in the Christian sense of the words.

    There is documentation of these creatures and phenomenon since the earliest of civilizations. There is no limit to the possibilities when we start to discuss spiritual beings. Demons are simply "lesser" spiritual creatures, which Angels are simply "higher" spiritual beings (yet lesser to the Gods). Either (as well as other spiritual creatures) can affect us on an energy level or "possess" us by manipulating our energy and physical body.

    At any rate, there is way to much historical evidence of these creatures, throughout many cultures, to simply discount them as "Christian Myth" as I feel many do.

  • You should read this book... It's really awesome and goes through a historical and metaphysical study of quite a few different beings, including Demons & Angels... Although I will say I do disagree with SOME of his beliefs - including his belief that fairy folk and aliens are the same thing... But, it's still a great book!

  • Nope, as I said in the other question - they're ways people scare their kids into believing and/or behaving, nothing more.

  • Demonic
    Angels...wouldnt be surprised
    Demons...not like they are portrayed with horns and red skin or whatnot.

    I think there is good and bad and sometimes a really bad persons energy could be called demonic. I dont think it can possess others like you see showed in movies and such. I dont believe angels or good things could possess a person either tho.

  • Demonic Possession... no, why would a powerful being want to posess something it can squash?
    Angels : Maybe
    Demons: After research, I am thinking yes... but, not the Christian sense of them

    Answer by Kaelansmom at 7:51 PM on Oct. 26, 2010

  • No I don't believe in them..just never felt that they exist.. I guess I just have always felt they were christian concepts and I have never felt close to anything christian in my life.

  • I believe there are things out there that are non-corporeal. I think some try to be helpful, some I think get jealous or twisted up and become malevolent. I don't know if I'd call them angels or demons, at least in the traditional sense.

    I do believe if you're willing or weak, you can open yourself up to having one of these beings get inside you and take over, even temporarily.
