This guy knows very little if anything about the subject. Psychological and medical causes for the symptoms must be ruled out before spiritual possession is considered. Duh. This guy didn't even bother to refute the commonly held signs that distinguish a possession from psychological symptoms. Can you say dissociated identity?  The depth of the message; it aint real cuz I don't believe it's real.

Someone has to try to prove that you can be possessed by magic evil hell dwelling god haters?

Can anyone prove that demons or evil spirits even exist?

Possession is real, hands down. Those that can't see it don't want to see it. They are willfully ignorant of the power of God, the inerrancy of the Holy Bible, and the real truth about our existence.
Just like leprechauns.

I guess the only proof anyone can get is if it happens to them.  There are lots of accounts of people who experience possession or obsession.  All religions talk about this reality because it is simpy real, though I wish it were not.

It's impossible to kmow without a thorough investigation. Is there a natural explanation that is just missed? The appearance of scratches on the body can be caused by physiological means via a mental state that accesses deep recesses of the subconscious.  The psych can produce phenomena, like your scratches, that are more often than not mistaken as paranormal or supernatural. Those causes must be looked into before coming to any conclusions about the meaning of what's happening to you.

You can get scratches by rolling around in your bed, its not uncommon for that to happen.

Could easily move your hand in your sleep.

Sometimes when I sleep... my clothes are torn apart, tattered... and I got no scratch on me.
And sometimes, when I sleep, and wake up to shower... the water becomes all bloody, and I have a lot of blood on me that was not there when I went to sleep. (truth of the deamon possessed)

Sounds more like you have a sleep disorder, you should see a doctor. Scratching during sleep is a very common issue, usually caused by stress but not necessarily. It's very common to hallucinate if you are suffering from a sleep disorder, too.

Demonic possession is not real, and you could well be damaging your health by ignoring possible signs of a disorder or illness in favour of fantastical ideas like that.
