Demonic possession is one way to explain the crazy thing going on in the world I suppose.

Pretty sad theres an international association of excorsists and they have a psychologist that isnt qualified enough to realise theyre nuts. A team of psycologists would stand a better chance of curing these possesed persons perhaps....

My english teacher was the priest from the movie exorcist, Fr. Omally a jesuit. To the church, exorcisms and possesion are very real, but very rare. This seems to be fear mongering meant to increase clergy ranks.

Satan or the devil are very real, we just dont know what the full nature of evil is. Same with witchcraft, very scary ****, anyone denying it is simply ignorant to it, the devil's greatest trick is the idea the devil isnt real.

What the "possessed" need are psychologists/psychiatrists, not an exorcist.

So you've practiced witchcraft or are you making a statement out of ignorance?

What evidence do you have?

Nope, it's nonsense... just like the idea of Satan/"the devil" being real is.

Quote

anyone denying it is simply ignorant to it,

Well, I don't deny witchcraft... witchcraft itself is real--what I deny is that there is any real magic involved. I deny that because there has never been an ounce of compelling evidence in the history of mankind to suggest that magic actually exists. Whatever "magical" happenings have occurred likely have a very mundane and reasonable explanation behind them.

Witchcraft works, just not in the hocus pocus way. As for the devil, it's just the scapegoat for your lack of self control.

In what way do you mean that "witchcraft works"? I'm curious.

What are trying to say? 

Magick like any belief based practices causes a psychological change that leads to self fulfilling actions and/or confirmation bias. The worst would be obsessive thoughts.

Hocus-pocus has been unfairly denigrated, imo.

Read post #16. As much as I've written about my views on it I'm surprised you've asked.

I'm not. I have a terrible memory. And in that sense I suppose that yes, witchcraft works.

What? If I ask any psychologist they'll admit that psychology is as much of a pseudo science as demonology. I think not.

It's all about planting thoughts/ideas in your un/subconscious. Depending on which ideas stick will depend on how it affects you. Getting the idea that some 'demons' gonna get you, can lead to paranoia. So you'll need a placebo to counter it, like a banishing ritual or a good therapist.

What is your proof to back up these claims?  And, you know what's more scary?  Someone that is ignorant and uneducated that believes this stuff is real.

Actually, why don't you ask a psychiatrist or a psychologist?  They'll be quite interested in what you have to say....

Obviously, you are not familiar at all.
