Greetings ATS. This thread represents an introduction to my attempt at a series that aims to dispel a master-conspiracy – a conspiracy that denies
a significant truth, that truth resulting in a real and terrible impact upon Humanity, by dressing it in the guise of an old-fashioned superstitious
mythology. The conspirators - and all those who have bought into the lie (formerly including myself) simply state: ’The Devil doesn’t
exist’’. My aim is to empower people with enough in the way of suggestive evidence to question the prevailing Western disbelief, in an attitude
of open-minded critique.
As for me, I believe there is a ‘Devil with a capital D’ – the leader of a vast, powerful & deceptive demonic host, and that His Infernal
Eminence coordinates malevolent spiritual activities against Mankind, which have real, detrimental practical implications for society at large, and
for the spiritual health – and potentially the eternal destiny, under certain circumstances - of all of us. I believe that this malevolent entity
is specifically bound to be active only upon the Earth and within the mental atmosphere (Noosphere) of Humanity - for various reasons, which we can
examine later on in the series.
Now it’s important for you to know that I wasn’t raised in a ‘certain’ religious environment, accepting unquestioningly everything that I was
taught. I was raised an atheist, have a 150 IQ, attended one of the best private schools in England, and made choices for myself at an early age
(approximately nine years old) that God didn’t exist. I spent my teenage years in rebellion due to parenting failures, and became heavily involved
in drugs, drink, sex, minor criminality and the Goth/ Rocker/ Mosh-pit counterculture of the late nineties. I fell out with my parents and got kicked
out of home at age 17. I became seriously unwell, mentally, and was diagnosed as a possible schizophrenic, and a definite alcoholic. My problems
were not simply a question of organic chemical imbalance – though there was a significant element of this involved in my overall condition due to
the drugs and drink.
It became clear (after my eventual deliverance/exorcism under the care of a Christian minister) that I had partly walked into, partly been dragged
into, a Satanic trap - and was afflicted by severe demonic persecution, known as ‘oppression’. It is important to note that I was not
‘possessed’ as is commonly portrayed by Hollywood - that being the state in which a person no longer retains lucid control of their physical body,
words or deeds. Yes, full possession can occur, but it is extremely rare. It is important to note, as I have stated on several other threads, that I
most certainly do not believe that all mental illness is demonic. In fact, I would estimate that only 5% of psychiatric cases are demonic in primary
I understand that many people will reject the concept of ‘the demonic’ at the first mention of the subject. Please bear with me, and see where
I would like to challenge people to reconsider their perspective on three key areas of thought, though I will be addressing an element of point
c) in my first thread in the series, for reasons that will become clear within that thread. From the second thread onwards, I will revert to
dealing with the three points in the order laid out as follows:
a) The existence of supernatural realms of activity influencing Human activity both individual and corporate: I will draw on many well-documented
and many lesser-documented examples of sought and unsought supernatural experience and the acquisition of ‘occult powers’ through various
traditions. I will examine the attitudes of scientists both ancient and modern with regard to their beliefs concerning the possible reality of an
‘unseen realm’. I will examine several issues that affect many of us in our day-to-day lives to some degree or other, such as lucid dreams, night
terrors, ‘gut instincts’, precognition, ‘sixth sense experiences’ (where we sense the presence of spiritual beings – either ghosts, angels
or demons, or strange creatures that we cannot categorise with any ease), ‘religious experiences’ (where we seem to come into direct contact with
God), out-of-body/ near-death experiences, and so on.
NOTE - If we can collectively acknowledge that there is at the very least the possibility of an ‘unseen psychological/spiritual realm’ and
perhaps ‘spiritual forces’ inhabiting it, then we can start to examine further whether a ‘Devil’ might exist – the devil not being a quaint
little man with a red suit, horns and a tail, but rather a powerful spiritual being that is motivated to cause widespread death, destruction, and
spiritual/ intellectual confusion on Earth. We could even start to ponder whether there is a ‘grand human conspiracy’ to blind us to the
existence of such an intelligence, in order that ‘It’ can operate more effectively to bring about the ruin of Mankind. That discussion might need
to await the completion of the series.
b) The relevant evidence from modern psychiatry that demonstrates a strong case for the actual existence of the evil psychic/spiritual entities known
as demons. In addition, I will draw on case histories of ‘religious exorcisms’ and the ministry of spiritual deliverance when carried out with
the approval of psychiatrists, under strict conditions of operation, and fully medically supported throughout, with carefully defined standards of
aftercare. I will demonstrate that in a percentage of mental health conditions, the actual realities involved are far stranger than conventional
Western science typically allows for, and this fact is evidenced by the actual recovery of patients ‘treated’ with spiritual deliverance, who were
once thought to be incurably mentally ill. I will include the testimony of respected mental health professionals, and that of the people who have
performed the exorcisms, and that of those who have been cured of their terrible afflictions via the unconventional ‘treatment’ of spiritual
NOTE – The aim of this section is to dispel several myths surrounding the mentally ill - both those who suffer organic conditions, and the
relatively small number who suffer genuine demonic affliction of one sort or another.
c) The circumstantial ‘evidence on the ground’: I will examine patterns of degradation in the moral standards of various societies in the modern
age, the ebb and flow, decline and resurgence of certain religious/metaphysical belief systems down through the ages, the failures of philosophy or
philanthropy (either ancient or modern) to resolve the fundamental problems of society, and the dogged persistence of the strange pan-eminent Human
experience – that of ‘temptation’. I will examine the nebulous grouping of philosophies and practices that constitute the New Age movement, and
will examine concepts such as ‘relative morality vs. absolute morality’, ‘relative truth vs. absolute truth’ and so on. I will be asking
questions of what we might expect to observe in the sphere of religion, if demons are assumed to exist, in all nations and throughout all time,
specifically looking for signs indicating that we live in a world under siege – a world invaded by hostile ‘spiritual’ forces, which actively
seek the destruction of humanity...
