I thought about that too..the first time they appeared. I thought ohh, it's just 2 regular dogs wanting food or something. But when they showed up
the second time, we were having just about the same conversation as we were the first time.
Remember, dogs are pack hunters and tend to do a prowl in a certain pattern at a certain time. And humans are VERY time oriented... so you can't
discount "owner comes home and that's when they're let out" or "this is when owner walks dogs."
But I also think that magicians are quite capable of "tricking" the mind,therefore who is to know that what you are seeing is actually even real at
Yes, someone skilled in the art could use the coincidental dogs to scare the bejeezus out of you... or even arrange for a friend to bring them by. I
don't see the point in it, though.
So now what do you think? You said that you are a wiccan...do you consider yourself good or evil? And if you are good, which I have a feeling you are,
would you even begin to know the power of someone working under satan?
I know I'm kind of getting off the original post, but I had ulterior motives for my questioning anyway.
I consider myself good.
I have spent quite a bit of time fighting evil and evils. I think a "powerful magician with familiars" makes for a wonderful fantasy story, but in
real life it don't exist. In fact, I removed a bruja's "curse" from a family two years ago. Though the bruja was reportedly very powerful and
from a long line of sorcerers, the curse was very simple to undo.
And quite obviously nothing happened to me.
Evil comes in many forms. People run around looking for demons and drama and forget what Real Evil looks like -- it's the person who tortures
animals, the one who abuses fellow humans just for fun, it's the bully on the playground, it's the one who forces sex on the unwilling... so many
evils that can be fought and put in their place. It's the drama queens who live to manipulate and hurt others and drain their energy.
I believe in demons of delusion that can trigger things. I believe in ghosts. But they're far less powerful and far less capable of harming the
world than an angry man who wants to get revenge on his ex-wife and kids.
All religions have perfectly good ways of chasing them off -- and they work. If they were so horkin' powerful, there wouldn't be any way to get rid
of them... and the methods certainly wouldn't involve something so simple and humble as a prayer and water and salt, eh?
