Maybe the placebo effect would work. My mother for instance is a huge hypochondriac, Just last week I was debunking her fears that she had rabies, and this week its epilepsy without having any kind of seizure activity. It's always, always something.


This is off topic but... You do that for your Mom? That is so nice. Must be tough though.

I am so happy I don't have any inclination to watch television and least of all this.
Nice thread though.
Why do we have such big brains? an ants nervous system would be suitable considering how little we use what we have.

The only way to do an exorcism would to be to get a real psychologist who could explain that demon possession is a form of mental illness.

Whether it comes from schizophrenia or because someine believes that demons have power over freewill is anyone's guess.

But demon possession outside of mental disorders don't exist. Jesus was a healer not a psychologist.

And if the Jews and Christians don't believe Elijah at the alter of Baal then they don't believe in their own scriptures.

Performing these bogus rituals only enhances the chance that someone will become psychotic and believe they are possessed by demons.

Believing in demon possession is a form of insanity all by itself in my opinion.


There is no money to be made for psychologists who DO believe in demon possession. Simple math there.

"The only way to do an exorcism would to be to get a real psychologist who could explain that demon possession is a form of mental illness."
Perhaps if you could convince demons of that first, they would leave the possessed alone?

Experiencing demon possession is much worse than just believing in it, at least from what formerly possessed folks have said.

And:
Performing bogus rituals only pisses off the demon further, which puts the victim through a lot more agony.

I suggest no one attempt any ritual unless you are a priest with professional experience getting rid of those things.

And don't attempt to deal with something you don't comprehend.
Even watching a possession in a movie or some docu-drama can be dangerous. Things like this are on the increase these days for a good reason, and it ain't good.

And ""Performing these bogus rituals only enhances the chance that someone will become psychotic and believe they are possessed by demons.""
So you are saying rituals, or even bogus ones have the power to inflict the pathology onto a mind inducing a psychotic episode?

Thats some powerful Mojo there !

Shame I'll probably working that day. I'm sure it will at least be a bit comedic in some ways ( For me at least ). I just can't take TV too seriously these days.

This isn't the first ever. They did one back in the 1970's - 80s, i think they did it on NBC or something. They recently re-told the same story of the event on paranormal witness.

The bible tells a story about the epileptic who the Jews thought was demon possessed. Thank God for modern science that has proven that illness does not come from demon possession.


Ah yes, like for example schizophrenia where scientists use blood tests, genetic makeup and brain imaging to prove someone is suffering from that illness. Oh no wait there are no real scientific tests for that, sorry my bad. I guess it's such a convincing science it doesn't even need real scientific tests like the other sciences. And thank something scientists aren't making billions like the Church did.. oh no wait again I'm wrong sorry, guess all that money goes into research and it's all for the betterment of mankind.

I kind of hope something does happen just because it's such a fascinating topic and more data would be nice to have.

But that would be at the expense of somebody else so it isn't worth it. Could go either way, I will be interested and following this.
