How can an atheist is going to experience demons? If you don't believe in god occurs you are not going to believe in the devil so demons are out the questions.
The only demons around are the ones in your imagination, I believe in god but I don't believe in the devil, satan or demons.

Ive had demonic experiences, but not for a long time now. Sheesh this sounds preachy, but ya know since my whole spiritual revelation breakthrough thingy Ive been pretty good with external deomns, I just have to deal with the ones in my own head.
My scariest experience was when I woke up in the middle of the night, ran downstairs, grabbed a knife, and slammed it into my wrists, throat, eyes, etc. But it wasnt in a feeling of suicid, it was as if I was killing someone else, as if I was no longer myself and killing another person inside my body. I actually wrote a story about it. Ive also seen my demon before, but I kicked his ash (mentally of course) and won that battle.

I think any Atheists that experiences a demon or whatever is having some kind of psychological disturbance and should if it continues seek help from there health care provider.

My upbringing is as a rationalist and should leave me laughing at the idea of Demons. I don't really laugh though the Universe is huge and we may never know how deep it runs, and beyond the Universe who knows what might be there.
I guess i take the purple cow theory: Never seen one, will have to deal with that when i come to it.

I am an atheist. However, I do not think it is impossible that a God, or its counter part could exist.
And, getting to the point, I think one of the best tricks that a demon could do is pretend it is a shepard and lead the sheep to the pack of awaiting wolves. You can fill in the analogy.

I'm confused. Just because an Athesist has an experience with a demon, doesn't mean there is a God, but demons. Christians could be mistakingly applying thier own beliefs on another diety.
