I don't doubt that something demonic is afoot. I think that it only affects people who would be vulnerable to evil, anyway. Like, hypothetically, if
my uber app (which I don't have) had this demon thingy appear all of a sudden and it started chatting to me and telling me to go on a murderous
rampage, I would literally collapse into a fit of giggles because of how absurd it would sound. But then, I was introduced very young into the
spiritual nature of reality. So seeing demons, while scary and definitely not expected on a daily basis, aren't exactly out of the realm of what I
know to be true and possible. Therefore, seeing one isn't going to make me lose my marbles.
But take someone (ie. the majority of people on this earth who, unlike me, have never seen or spoken with a demon) who has no idea about any of this.
I don't think it's crazy to think that they would lose their minds. Imagine how shocking and word-shattering that would be. The uber dude does look
evil in the eyes, and his story is so weird that I almost want to think that some of it must be true.
Like, how come schizophrenics often blame demons? Why not blaming a cucumber since they're crazy? Why demons, specifically? I think it's because maybe
it is what it is. I bet that tons of people are getting oppressed and they have no idea what is going on and they end up going nuts because they have
no way to cope. Seeing weird stuff definitely creates a divide between 'reality' and reality. And if you're not ready for it, I think it would make
you go insane. Even when you're ready for it, it's still really freaky. So yeah, I actually do think that it is likely that demons play a role in
mental illness. To what extent, I do not know.
But other than demons, the cause is probably evil. And evil is in all of us, so I guess it's just down to if you listen to it or not.

The extraordinary evidence is the fact that people have been talking about demons since the world started. They're fallen angels. And this type of
thing is well within their ability. According to William James, the father of American Psychology, the only way to judge a religious experience is by
judging it by how one judges religious experiences. You can't judge apples to oranges. You have to compare apples to apples. So based on that, yeah it
does fit the bill of demonic activity in some cases. Belief and unbelief both require faith.
