A demon is a kind of defination on one people being a demon but the main meaning of it(based on what i thought) not a spirit but a people doing things against god an his rules like killing

So everything in the world is defined by your opinion? What a world we live in where the whimsy of a child defines reality for all.

Hopefully, someone's English or his typing is bad.  Keanz, people have the right to choose to                                                                                                                                                     obey God's rules or not, it's called Free-Will. God sees the acts of disobedience as sin. The angels that  chose to go against God and was changed to demons had the same free-will.

If demons allegedly take over our thoughts how do we know which are our thoughts as opposed to the thoughts of some outside influence?

know thyself, if it's not something normal to your nature, then it's generally not from your  nature.

Hmmm, and what if you already have two bickering Demons inside you? Do you just know something is up, when there is a fourth opinion...Well that's how I do it anyways.

In that case, Id expect it would get crowded and the original two would complain.

Or it might consume the first two and take their spot, or the other way around. You never know, it could be a never ending cycle of eating each other. O_o Not sure if that made any sense.....

It did, though I think then the question would be who ate who.

Why do I suddenly get the mental image of a bunch of contortionist demons doing yoga and eating each other...

Well according to Jordyns 'know thyself' definition this maybe be evidence of 'a demonic takeover' in your head.

Maybe demonic evidence for you would be wanting to look at fluffy kittens and a desire to hug cheerleaders.
Peace, love, caring, compassion, and being a little bit unsure of yourself.

I know it freaked kreepy out when it happened to him.


To be honest i am not a great believer in unusual thoughts being a sign of demonic presence. I mean yes to some degree it is true but the problem for me is that if you start thinking about thoughts being of 'other' origin where do you stop? It is just a hairs breath away from believing that our natural state is complete internal silence and that ALL thought is of demonic origin. This concept is just as valid surely?

They do complain a lot, well that's all they are allowed to do. They usually complain about my thoughts,....."Stop thinking of cheerleaders Oni!!", yeah they get tortured.
I have unusual thoughts all the time, not a good way to determine demonic possession.

Haha, who ate who first...? I ate them first. Their mistake was trying to get me first.

Oni you are living proof of my rapidly developing theory that all thoughts are of demonic origin.

Thanks OldBill...I think. I don't know if I  should be honored or offended, hmmm.  I wonder if I should imagine the purple teletubby raping them, with a cheerleader squad cheering the purple teletubby on in the background. Always do so love rattling their cages.
