Just to play devils advocate here. Heh, devil. are falling to the ground in school, screaming for Satan to leave them alone For some odd reason my mind immediately jumped to ergot poisoning. Remember that? I was speculating that people prone to believing in demons might react this way to that sort of problem. Remember when we thought the mentally ill were possessed? children to Onandjokwe Hospital, where no illness was found.I am apt to wonder how well they looked? What sort of tests did they run?
